  1. I think you may be right because when I went on Amazon USA I could not find the N-95 masks either.
  2. I have to go back to the States on Friday and would really like to have an N-95 mask to wear on the plane. If I did not need to go I would definitely not be traveling. I will be getting a Covid test on Thursday. If anyone knows where I can purchase the N-95 masks I would greatly appreciate it. I would prefer them over the Chinese version I think those are called KN-95. I know they are pretty good but not as good as the N-95. Thanks in advance
  3. I am sorry but I know that this is not correct. My wife is Mexican and I lived in Mexico City for 4 years and have many Mexican friends and relatives. Not just my wife's family but I have two Mexican aunts. They ALL tip at gas stations. I have been with my Mexican family and friends in Nuevo Laredo, Monterrey, Mexico City, Toluca, El Oro and Cuernavaca and they always tip. I believe that they all tip 10 pesos but I can't be sure if that number is accurate with all of them. My wife and my brother's in law and my best friend in Mexico tip that amount.
  4. Yes Rick you are right and I made that common mistake. As I am challenged in so many aspects of life especially with computer and hand held devices I try to opt for the simplest and paths of least resistance as possible. My wife uses our Voice Over Internet Protocol. Never heard of that before but see I learned something today. She calls her sister in Mexico City on it. I think I have used that phone about 3 times in the last 8 years. It really comes in handy when she calls me when I walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain on my yearly pilgrimages. I get a Spanish SIM card and she can call me wit
  5. I was under the impression that Vonage just works with landlines. I went to the website and they said I could connect Vonage to my cell but I would need to use an access number: You can link your Vonage service to any mobile or landline phone number. When you make a call from the linked phone number, you must use an Access Number and your Security PIN to ensure you are billed at the same low rates as your Vonage home phone. I have a landline that works well with with my internet connection. It seems like this would be a hassle to use. But thanks for the information. Who knows what will tr
  6. I live in Riberas and AT&T does not work in my home. I had to switch ti Telcel. It works fine here in Mexico. My plan covers the United States and Canada also. I previously had AT&T in Bucerias before I moved to Riberas. I loved it. Within Mexico I would say they are about equal although when you get to really out of the way places Telcel's coverage is more expansive. Where AT&T was far superior in my mind was calling the States and Canada. It was much easier and I had a better signal calling friends and one daughter in the States and my other daughter in Vancouver. They also had n
  7. As a former pharmaceutical representative it is common to pay volunteers for their participation in drug studies. Yes it is often students and poor people who sign up as a means to supplement their income. My older daughter wanted to volunteer for the Moderna Phase 2 trials and I talked her out of it. I am not opposed to vaccines whatsoever and will get one when they are approved and I have read the study results. I just don't want my daughter being in the study. There is a case to be made regarding the risks of any participation, especially in vaccine study groups.
  8. Do you also offer the shingles vaccine? When I lived in Mexico City I was told by a doctor it was not available here. Is that still the case to your knowledge?
  9. New to the area and I have gotten some really good recommendations from some of you so thanks. I was just shipped an new battery for my MacBook Air. Do not want to attempt to install it myself. Can someone recommend a good computer guy who can do this. It is a really easy job. Thanks in advance.
  10. I am sorry for my ignorance as I have just moved here but what is the LCS. I used to vote absentee when I lived in Oregon and it was a super simple process. I would download my ballot and envelope. Fill it out and seal it and take it to the American Cousulate in Nuevo Vallarta and it would be sent to Oregon for me. Now my permanent residence is in Texas and it is a much more difficult and convoluted process. I will be calling my county's election office for guidance but I need to know what the LCS is and how they transfer the ballots to the United States. Thanks for any help. Please note, In t
  11. Thank you all for being so kind as to give me your opinions you have all been a great help.
  12. I agree with you and you get what you pay for most of the time. My wife is from Mexico City. She has a fantastic dentist there but he is in Mexico City. His prices are very high for Mexico but he does great work the first time. If there is a problem he takes responsibility. I do not mind paying more for a skilled practitioner. In the long run just like your health it is alot more expensive to be sick (or have poor dental health) than it is to be healthy.
  13. We just moved Lakeside and my wife is having problems with an old root canal. Can anyone recommend a great dentist who really knows what they are doing. I know it is subjective but would love some suggestions. Thanks so much
