  1. I used to fill the gas tank (120 liters) every couple of months at about 800 pesos a fill. A few years back I bought a solar water heater with more capacity then we usually need (but just to be sure). That and the other plumbing parts cost about 10k pesos total. A friend of mine and I did the installation and since then, I fill the gas tank maybe once a year, if that. The solar heater has been the best thing that we've done to the house. I love it.
  2. Tech Tip: In this case at least (not in all situations), you can enter some made-up email address and then read the article. This works because they let you read without verifying the email. If you need a temporary email address (i.e. a throw away address), you can use WhateverYouWant@mailinator.com - Then you can go to mailinator.com, enter the email name you chose and read the message. The mailinator thing doesn't work everywhere (such as the epoch times) because they know these are throw away email addresses and disallow them. But it does work in a lot of situations. Don't use for anything confidential though; these throw aways can be read by anyone.
  3. Here's a topic that might help. There's quite a few tips. Also, you can search these forums, maybe find some others.
  4. Easy enough (for moderators I mean) to find out who removed a post. Just need to check the logs.
  5. Yeah, that info is pretty old. Telcel might have dropped that service or maybe you have to get them to activate it for the number. I tried it just now to my phone and the email bounced with "The user is not okay"
  6. This page has an entry for Telcel. https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/17056/~/list-of-mobile-carrier-gateway-addresses
  7. No need to subscribe to read any articles. Read all you want. Disable Javascript for the site. Or, you can delete the site cookies when you reach the limit. These are general tips. They work on lots of sites, but not all.
  8. I've been using OFX (formerly Forex) for years now. They have good rates and don't charge anything if you move more than a certain amount. From what I've read on this thread, it's not as fast as Wise, but that's okay for me. It usually takes about a week.
  9. You can attach a file by clicking the choose files link when starting a topic. Or you can drag the file from its folder into that bottom zone.
  10. I'll try to start a new pm. On the one which I replied, I just noticed that it says you have left the conversation. I don't know how that happens, but I'll start a new one and leave my phone number. Hopefully that works.
  11. I did send a PM a couple of days ago. I hope I did it right. I can see it in my message inbox. Ocho is recovering. Dr. A. removed the tumor. We go back to Guadalajara next week for a check up. You are a savior. When we're able, Ocho and I would love to thank you in person.
  12. Totally defunct. The web site now goes to a scammer place.
  13. Thanks. Going to print out the poster and hang it in the kitchen!
  14. I would gladly help you if I were the area. I owe you a great debt of gratitude.
  15. Hi Natasha The advanced care my vets have mentioned is localized radiation therapy. It uses a machine to direct the radiation right at the tumor. But they don't have the tech. My vets have also said that chemo will likely leave my doggie in very sad shape. Bad side effects. The radiation therapy has fewer side effects. I'm going by what various vets have told me. I've never had a dog that developed cancer before, so I don't know too much about it. Thanks for the info and the PM. Will look at it right now.
  16. Hello Community - I'm reaching out to see if anyone knows of a place where I can take my dog for advanced care. She is a German Shepard 7 years old, and has a cancerous tumor. We've been to various vets and hospitals. Without advanced care, the prognosis is not good. Her best hope they say is localized radiation therapy. Chemo is too invasive and will leave her with a very poor quality of life. However, they say it (radiation therapy) is not available in Mexico. But still, maybe somebody here has some knowledge to help her? I can only ask. She's a lively and loving dog, and she means the world to me. If you know of any ideas, please let me know. Thanks Victor David p.s. photo is from the early days. I found her as a very small pup on the street.
  17. Thank you so much! I got a new phone # and immediately started receiving all this Uno TV spam junk. 14 messages in 4 days. Now solved, yea!
