  1. Maybe this guy can repair printers Compucel del Lago Benjamin, owner
  2. Tow it to San Luis Soyatlan, turn right at the OXXO. Drive up the hill, then park it. The local chop shop will mince it into pieces in about three hours. Problem solved.
  3. Oil filters are manufactured specific to either conventional oil or synthetic oil. A big waste of money if the mechanic installs the wrong filter.
  4. I have a gas powered inverter generator Honda EU3000is that will run on a tank of gas 10 hours or more pending electrical draw down. It is quiet also. I can loan it to anyone who has medical needs that require power. It will take two men to move. A short term loan until the grid is stabilized. https://powerequipment.honda.com/generators/models/eu3000is
  5. Yep you are right, I missed that. I crossed 4 times in the last 30 days and there were no lines in either direction each time I crossed at Colombia. Not even an Aduana search on the Mexican side twice.
  6. Maybe Mexican Nationals with dual citizenship are going North now for a vaccine. Or some others are confused with the recent news reports that Texas has lifted Covid restrictions 100%, so they think that they can cross. I met a family in Monterrey a couple of days ago and they were headed to Texas for a shopping trip. They thought that the border was opened because of the news in Texas. I don't think that will happen.
  7. ^^Thanks that is good information to know. It is not possible to communicate by phone with my vac site so I can only rely on one way email communication from them. We had 48hr notice to arrive for the first shot so we made it that time driving from lakeside. My family in Texas has been without power or potable water since Monday. Walmarts and HEB have been closed around the clock, but today the sun is out and all will return to normal soon. IH35 in central Texas has been at a crawl this past week so it is good to know that the shippers have the product in stock in the hubs. The vac
  8. I wonder how long the Pfizer vaccine can remain viable if the vaccination sites and storage facilities have no backup power generators to maintain the -70C temperatures. There could be millions of doses lost in the areas that have suffered the recent winter storm, particularly Texas.
  9. This blogger in your area is well connected. You may want to send him a msg. https://qroo.us/
  10. My maid just told me Dr. Nuñez in Jocotepec died of COVID. He was in the hospital 3 days. I have no confirmation of that news. Quite a few expats in Joco were his patients.
  11. Whenever I am asked my age at the entry I just say, "Tengo treinta y cinco años en cada pie." By the time they figure that out, I am at the checkout. No problem, it is Mexico so there is always a way.
  12. Just a heads up with Transferwise, there is now a $980 USD cap on amount to be converted and sent to my Mexican Bank, Bancomer. New Mexican banking rule as of the end of December. If you want to transfer $4900 for example you will need to make 5 transfers. The rules may change but Transferwise does not know when. The cost of 5 multiple $980 transfers vs one transfer at $4900 will incur an additional 10% in fees according to their fee schedule. I do not have a business account so maybe the rules are different with that account.
  13. Same circumstances and decision here but we cannot make appointments. The websites will not provide appointments in my county until the vaccines are scheduled to arrive. Maybe next week, vamos a ver.
  14. Curious Jim if you are an American living in Mexico, what is your plan? Will you drive/fly to the US for a vaccination? I am not trolling you, I am only seeking out another opinion because I may be driving to Texas if the vaccine becomes available in my county of residence there. So far, it is not available in that county for 1B.
