  1. Too much time and resources wasted on bureaucracy. I have neighbors that want to be vaccinated but don’t have the appropriate identification required for whatever reasons. It needs to made as easy as possible for those that want to be vaccinated.
  2. Here we go again with these meaningless restrictions here. It would be productive if they open vaccination centers to everyone, of all ages over 12, no registration required and regardless if they have proof of address or residency. Let’s just get it in people’s arms already.
  3. Sometimes we all have moments when we’re at a loss, we’re frustrated and we share our feelings and what we hope to get back is…I hear you buddy, it sucks your electricity (for example) has gone out 5 times this week, that must be frustrating. What’s not helpful, is someone saying…oh really, I don’t have any problems with my electricity, must be your attitude. If your friend, your neighbor, your kid, whatever, shares their feelings or frustrations with you, would you say too bad, the problem is you? I hope you wouldn’t do that. If you wouldn’t say it out loud to someone’s face, let that give you pause as to whether you should type it from behind your keyboard. Remember the old adage, if you can’t say something nice or supportive or humorous, better to say nothing at all.
  4. Good tires are important also. Too many people running around with bald tires. I blew a tire a few months ago, coming around the mountain downhill, was going a good clip and hit a piece of metal and blew out the tire, ripped it right open. I was happy that my car performed well, could have been a serious situation had the vehicle not been regularly maintained.
  5. You’ve really thought this through 😊
  6. I’m fully vaccinated and intend to go on living and enjoying my life. Joy has been on hold for too long. I don’t give a flying fig if someone else is vaccinated or whether they wear a mask or social distance. If you want to worry and control what everyone else does, knock yourself out. Those that are vaccinated have done their part. Feel free to preach away, I’m going out to enjoy the day.
  7. So is your concern being fully vaccinated doesn’t adequately protect you from the virus?
  8. Telmex should be obsolete, their service is horrible.
  9. I do agree Hector is good at diagnosis but he wants to do every test under the sun and the prices have more than tripled over the years. The last time I went there to see him it was just before noon and I was told I need to be there by 9:30 if I want to see him. Dude’s keeping CEO hours and charging CEO rates. No thank you. I went to Delphino, I found him very knowledgeable and very caring. I took my dog there so I can’t speak to his expertise with cats however he’s always there from 8-4 and provides his cell number for emergencies and after hours and is willing to come to your home or meet at his clinic after hours. His rates are very reasonable. Might be worth it to give him a try. He’s in the little strip mall next to Panino’s. I hope your Kitty feels better soon. Good luck.
  10. For many of us living in lower SAT it’s not just the plaza where the cohetes are lit, it’s also at the street corners and on the street in front of houses. Many of us have bedrooms facing the street so they go off and they sound like they are in bed with you. I’ve become accustom to the noise however in particular the last day of the festival was excessively loud with cohetes going off ALL DAY long. It’s not just expats that find that taxing after 10 days. My friends and neighbors with small children haven’t slept much in over a week either. It was exceptionally quiet last night in the hood, I suspect most of in lower SAT went to bed early and enjoyed a good long night sleep.
  11. We found the heron with their long beaks could peck through the mesh so we bought (Amazon) a roll of metal screen and made a little frame and secured it over our pond at night. Seems to have worked so far. Good luck to you.
  12. Zeb, I DON’T consider your review as VERY negative and highly doubt you’ve damaged Arturo’s reputation just on your say so. I know at least 4 local plumbers named Arturo. It’s all good. Glad you got your problem sorted.
  13. Flights to Houston on United were $222 return in June just three days ago and when I checked today, $1175 return. Ugggghhh!!! Hope flying to McAllen is more reasonable.
  14. As long as a really big truck doesn’t go by, we should be good.
