    The money goes through PayPal. Same prices as doing it here.

    Alert to all readers here:   I tried this option, and Xoom / Paypal charged it as a cash advance / wire transfer, instead of a purchase.      So the credit card that is linked to my Paypal account was charged a cash advance fee of $3.50 dollars, PLUS they charge interest on the amount of the payment from the time the "purchase" is made.

    I would highly recommend, based on my experience, NOT to use Xoom / Paypal, although I am informed that using a debit card linked to the Paypal account, instead of a credit card, may avoid this issue.       I assume also having a balance on one's Paypal account, could also do that.       FYI so you don't get the same hit that I did......and if anyone has further info on this, please post it back here.    Thank you.

    In order to be deemed a real start, the rain has to fall three times in a week, be clearly generated by the easterlies the shift of which denoted the beginning of our season and have to add up to 3.8 cm (1.5 inches) in the first 7 day week.  The date of the first rain in the qualifying trio is the winner.

    We all agreed on this thread to go by these "rules", so everyone give it a rest.      MC has done this for years and has this covered.   

    If you want to change the game next time, then speak up earlier.

    Yes I have visited, no need to be snarky. If you have nothing better to do than to make assumptions about people you don't know, go find some friends. 

    If you have nothing better to do then ask questions and fight on the web-board, get off your a** and do your research in person.    Or call an agent.

    Virgo most of us remember that about the time this person said they were coming

    Questions started in Feb 2019, not 2020.     Yes, point understood and taken about the pandemic.    Still a bizarre way to "research" water supplies of rentals IMHO.

    Thank-you to all the people that answered my question. I'd like to point out to all the posters that recommend I rent for awhile prior to buying, no where in my original post did I say I was buying. Moving lakeside can mean renting too. As for the posters that wonder why I want to be in a gated community, it's none of your business. My question wasn't asking whether i thought I should be in a gated community or not. I love this board for the people that give great advice, but as for you others I hate social media.

    So have you ever visited in the 2 years you've been asking questions?    Wow, some people just visit and figure things out in person.     Hmmmmmmmmm.........does makes one wonder.

    RO water is not cpmpletely demineralized in comparison to distilled water. You are confused-RO water is not deminearlized completely period.

    "A reverse osmosis (RO) system is a type of water filter that pushes pre-filtered water through a membrane with very tiny pores. ... While RO water is not truly demineralized, the process does remove a significant portion of mineral ions that are too large to pass through the membrane."

    It will leave some minereals in an iron but if you aren't running a laundry it should not matter. 

    As usual, you are wrong, again:

    Reverse osmosis demineralization (lenntech.com)

    RO does not remove all the minerals only those that don't pass through the filter (membrane) but distiled water does as it is condensed steam.

    Removes so many and such a high % that RO water is allowed to be called "demineralized", so get a life.

    Canada should welcome them with open arms. 

    Canada has taken in many times more immigrants than the USA has, per capita.      And done more for and with the Covax vaccine facility and the WHO, as well, pound for pound.

    Gadfly - Go build another wall.   All around yourself.     Then you and all others can celebrate.

    "Trump" "Trump who?" Old news. Do you realize the U.S.'s current president is Joe Biden. It is Biden's current policy that wants the U.S. to be given priority. What is wrong with that policy? And, by the way, has Canada not been purchasing vaccines? If not, why not?

    You are a first class pendejo, amigo.     Now USA "Buy American" all of a sudden wants to remove the illegal tariffs it put on Canadian lumber.....because it can't get enough of it's own....oh, boo hoo, suck it up, maybe you can't have any lumber from Canada, Mr. Buy American.      And Canadians can enjoy nice lower lumber prices, and availability, of their own product, instead of high prices and shortages so vaccinated Americans can build homes.      

    It's all about you....except, it's not.     FlyFree?   More like, GadFly.
