  1. I have several Travelon anti-theft purses, and I love them. The main strap has cables in it, would need a bolt cutter to get through them, the sides have high-strength steel wire in them, non-slashable, zipper locks, and the strap can be wrapped around a chair, or the grocery cart, very secure. I highly recommend them. Pretty colors, too, all sizes. Www.travelon.com
  2. Where are you in FL? I also have a small condo there. Just a word of warning... There is usually, in any type of líen, an "heirs and assigns" clause, that passes certain liens/encumbrances on to heirs and assigned beneficiaries, making legally liable, so no, you are not able to walk away from any deficiency. Because of that, some basic but prudent estate planning is VERY IMPORTANT, for you if not for your folks. If their estate wil be small, you might be able to get AARP to refer YOU to a cheap estate lawyer. Estate lawyers for small legacies are cheap. And you parents may not leave
  3. Kimanjome... Re: when a person with a mortgage dies... It's NOT "the bank's problem", it's the estate's problem. The house will pass into the estate, and depending on the testamentary structure, will go to an heir with a "stepped up basis" for tax purposes, but an encumbrance (a claim against the estate) at the same time, so the estate will be responsible for paying the debt/mortgage. Anybody that thinks that someone can get a mortgage, and then that debt just "goes away" upon death, is just stupid and selfish. Such a person should really think about the heirs, and put together a reasona
  4. The lack of testing, exponential growth of the infected population, extraordinary contagiousness, and long non-symptomatic incubation period make this a very dangerous disease. I am self-isolating.
  5. The signing of the USMCA trade agreement is what has boosted the peso. Investors are figuring that the NOB industrial production will boost the Mexican GDP and ameliorate the internal recession somewhat. This will only last so long. Also, AMLO has asked the IMF to increase Mexicos credit line for loans, but has been told that it needs to drastically increase tax collections. So... We are seeing many strong suggestions and new measures to pay more taxes. The gov't can only increase the IVA by so much, Point of Sale taxes are the only sure means to raise taxes in a country where the citize
  6. Health experts have opined that the masks really do nothing, it is the transmission thrpugh skin, mucus membranes (eyes, nose, etc).
  7. The name of the place is Ajijic Plaza Suites, I think.
  8. My experience has been that the Mexican govt "makes announcments" without doing the hard background work in advance to make sure that the facilities have adequate funding, regulations are clear, every contingency has been taken into account and planned for. Looks like one big PR stunt to me. People will suffer.
  9. Alan, I just want to say how much I appreciate your objective, well-informed information. It helps me immensely...And I always thought there was something fishy about that 60 M.
  10. So adorable! Trying to find homes for a couple of bodega kittens myself, or I would take them.
  11. Not dog, but a cat. Volaris seems to think that its role is to abuse its passengers, and especially those with pets. Read the website conditions carefully, because they will not deviate, and will lecture you on your (or her) non-compliance, and then deny your boarding. After working for Pan Am for 20 years, the level of arrogance of Volaris is staggering. I hope your experience is better.
  12. A feral momcat gave birth to 5 kittens in my bodega, and I found homes for three of them, and decided to adopt two and take them to the US. I have one old cat who travels with me by air. I asked a Volaris supervisor by phone if I could put 2 kittens in one carrier, seeing as they are so small. She said I could, as long as and the weight of the carrier plus kittens was less than 10 kilos, and they were at least 4 months old. I was overjoyed. So...I checked into Volaris at 4 AM on Thursday, having met all the conditions, and after being rudely scolded by the counter employees, was denied
  13. I have very mixed feelings about the new system. There are 60 million poor Mexicans without health care. After seeing the gringos in Ecuador who moved there largely to use that "free" system & exploited it unfairly, I feel that it should be the responsibility of the American/Canadian population to provide for their own care, thru insurance or self-insuring. There simply isn't enough money to go around, and the Mexicans who have done without for so long should be the beneficiaries. I will probably get flamed for this comment, LOL. I say this after getting a quote yesterday for p
