  1. The 956 is a Texas area code.
  2. SS cards do not have pictures. Beyond that, who cares?
  3. It is quite official and quite valid. It was issued to me in 1953. I have used it ever since, and even the US Government employees chuckle when they see it. But, they always accept it, as they are familiar with those older cards.
  4. An aside: If you are as old as I am, your SS Card probably has a red letter notice, as mine does: "Not to be used for identification"
  5. Yes. It is the same outfit. On Lopez Cotilla, north side of the street, and they have a sign. The street is one-way westbound, so you will see it on your right. I can't remember the number, but it is easy to find. If you are on foot, walking eastward, it will be about two blocks east of Madero and the mercado publico, on your left as you walk east.
  6. We have used them at their Chapala location, while we lived just down the street. They are the very best, and you need look no further for others.
  7. Senile dementia could be showing up in some of these posts. What do you young folks think?
  8. Most fresh water lakes and ponds become marshes. Eventually, plants take over and raise the ground level even more. Then come the new and hardier plants, followed by forests. It is a very slow process; short of a sudden tectonic elevation. All is rather unpredictable in the short years we have left. Speculation and complaining are both futile.
  9. Those are some of the reasons that we sold in Ajijic, and moved to Chapala Centro in 2004. We stayed there a decade and we miss it terribly. We were a block and a half from the mercado publico, and could walk everywhere in the downtown or lakeside malecon, etc.
  10. Smells a lot like a troll with time on his hands!!!
  11. What residency visa is required? That may be the problem.....
  12. Wearing masks and using all the other precautions may be the new normal for years to come. This virus, like the common cold, may mutate forever, providing new variants, and even requiring that we get vaccinated every year; if new vaccines can be developed in time. Naturally, the less cautious folks will be the ones to become infected more frequently, and contribute to the infection of more innocent people around them. That is how any contagion works, and a pandemic is an out of control contagion. This one is global.
  13. My wife got hers, but I did not get mine. Same address, and we both got the earlier $1200 stimulus at this address. The site also has 'no information'. So, I continue to wait........
  14. Sea level does help some, but is not a cure. It just gets worse with time. So, I disregard my vegan friends, and eat whatever I wish. Bacon is still my favorite food group.
  15. I was a smoker, and did OK until age 62 when the heart attacks started. Lungs seemed fine, bur really were not, and heart failure continued, requiring several interventions and eight stents. It wasn't long before I was diagnosed with COPD and placed on oxygen. Increasing difficulty breathing then forced us to move to a lower elevation, so we sold our Chapala home and departed. We miss Chapala a lot. Now, at 83, life is no fun at all, and I migrate from bed to recliner, etc, with a walker. A wheelchair stands ready, but I seldom leave the house. This is your future, if I were to guess. Plea
  16. The uniformed could accost those who are uninformed, or those like a poster above, who seem confused. Beliefs often do cause confusion with the facts, don't they?
  17. I think that 001 is for any international call. The next number is the country code, then the ten digit phone number.
  18. I believe that it is tied to the property, and will have to be settled at the time the property is transferred.
  19. I have been informed that this thread was a well crafted intelligence test. Those who failed; and the majority did, should avoid posting again....anywhere.
  20. Not sure, as my first shot will be Friday. I suspect Phizer.
  21. I got a surprise call from the VA, here in Texas, with appointments for my Covid vaccinations; This Friday, and again in four weeks.
  22. Call Hall Microcomputers, or use their website, in order to insure that they bring the battery you need, if it can be replaced locally. If not, they will take it to Guadalajara and do it there.
  23. Without those big, tender and tasty claws, they aren't "Lobster".
