  1. yes, thank you that is wise advice. And I totally agree with you. This friend lived and worked in the states for many years. Has worked for years washing cars at walmart as it is a steady job. I will not name names but when his grandfather died in order to get off work to go to the funeral he had to pay the man in control $300mxn. When his baby was born 9 days ago and he had to be at the hospital to help his wife, he had to pay another $300. Another friend of ours who works there, had to pay $300 to be off for the day to go help his daughter in the hospital. The man in charge does not care about them. The workers put up with this because work is scarce and washing cars at Walmart, believe it or not is a coveted job. I have written the corporate office of Walmart in Mexico City. They respond quickly. The manager of This walmart is a good honest man. He just doesnt know what is going on. I say all this to just say we are helping our friend break away from this "control" .
  2. Kam. Thank you so much. I will tell him. He and his wife are like our kids. That is so nice of you. He was taken to the states as a baby. Never spent time in Mexico. Dad taught him landscaping. Just a good honest hard worker. Wanted to be legal. Never in any trouble at all. Hired a lawyer, saved his money, went to Juarez to apply and they said NO must stay in Mexico for 10 years. Brought his gringa wife here and is making a life for them and their 2 year old and another baby on the way. We love them. He does miss Chic fil A sandwiches though !!!! Thank you so much for your kind words.!!!!
  3. Hello. I know from time to time Local Mexicans read this blog. We have some mexican friends moving here from Durango. It is the parents of a good mexican friend coming to help his son, Ernesto Barron in his Landscaping business that is very busy as he is totally bilingual. And if you need a good landscaper (331 267 9364) The parents need an apartment for no more than $2000mxn. We know these prices exist as we have other mexican friends that have found them and many friends that pay no more than this. If any of you know of an apartment or house, can you please message me. I think you have to do it privately. Thank you so so much !!! or text me or call 332 055 6255

  7. sure i understand.....it was our realtor who is selling our house, and who works with a local Notario who told me about september being the discount month and the house not automatically passing to the other spouse without a will. I dont know if that is true but will ask when we go do the Will.
  8. thank you , yes we are planning this month. In case someone does not know, we were told that in Mexico if you own a home as a couple and have children as beneficieries . If one spouse passes, their half does not automatically pass to the other spouse. That half goes to the children. So it has to be spelled out in the will what you wish to do. We have our kids on our House title as beneficieries and thought that was enough. ......but its not.

  11. yes, i have an online account and have looked all over it, but cannot find where i would decline.
  12. I read that 4 months before turning 65 we can decline Part B Medicare. I tried to go online. I read that they use to send a form in the mail that you must sign and return to decline. Maybe I have to go to Guadalajara to sign the form. Does anyone know about this. Thank you so very much. I did send an email to the Soc. Sec. office in GDL but have not heard anything.
