  1. Past hour
  2. The lirios has been in the lake since last rainy season. There is so much at the San Antonio malecon, the reporter had pictures of them cleaning some of it away to the fishermen could get to their boats. I drove down there the other day and watched while one of the fishermen waded in the lake and was scooping the lirios out. He was creating a path so he could bring his boat in. A second note, Accuweather is predicting a chance of rain for today and overcast and chance of thunderstorms every day up to the 6th of June. Does this mean an early rainy season? I hope so.
  3. Put your cursor over the name of the poser and wait a couple of seconds... then click on "ignore poster".
  4. seeing someone's postings? I have done it in the past, but can't remember how. So sick and tired of the whining.
  5. No but same problem upper la floresta.
  6. Woodworking volunteers needed at The school. We are flexible, We can fit you in, Help with projects, fix machines. sweep floors etc We have a new Vacuum dust collector, to protect your health, the students and teachers health etc. We could use a few volunteers with teaching experience. its all about helping the kids and giving them a future
  7. Deposits in the US are insured by the gub'mint. Wells Fargo didn't just steal the people's money right out of their accounts, as happens frequently in Mexico.
  8. It is a good idea to avoid valets and other 'nationals' driving your US or Canadian vehicle, unless you are in the vehicle. An accident could lead to real complications. You will be the culprit.
  9. Today
  10. intercasa is right, be more concerned on the return of your investments, rather then the return on your investments
  11. Too many people, everywhere, seem to believe whatever they have heard, or read, last. Then, with good intentions, they pass it on, and on and on. When it comes full circle, those beliefs are reinforced and locked into their reality. That repitition is crucial to building strong beliefs and the courage to defend them and spread them. It is the very reason for going to clubs, churches, or other organization meetings on a regular basis; reinforcement of the creed! Gullibility reigns! Pass the KoolAid.
  12. I have telcel and telmex modem and no wifi, on and off for 2 days now. Any one else having problem in Roca?
  13. ...and even in the U.S., there was the Wells Fargo scandal.
  14. There is also a type of tick where I live , don't know if you have them Lakeside. They call them guinas(sp?) They are so small it's really hard to see them unless you know what you're looking for. They don't burrow under the skin, they just stick their mandibles into your skin like other ticks do, but they don't swell up with blood. They itch like crazy, and even when you get rid of them, their bites still itch for a week afterwards, so you think you still have them. They like the warmer places on your body, like behind the knees, around the armpits. They tend to hang out around cows and horses and sit on the vegetation and if you brush by, they will attach themselves to you. I've found some on my dog, too. It's actually easy to rid yourself of them by just standing in a hot shower and scrubbing yourself hard with a washcloth.
  15. No entiendes la "o " por lo redondo...…...
  16. I´ll say your housekeeper doesn´t know what she´s talking about. There are price control limits on certain staples but not on Coca Cola or any other refresco. Walmart, Soriana, or any other chain or individually owned tienda, restaurant, puesto, or whatever can charge whatever they want. Housekeepers are not always the best source of info for how sociedades anonimas run their business,
  17. It might be good for those with Ilox speed issues to mention their package. Someone with a 40mb package getting 10mb isnt as serious as someone with a 350mb package getting 10.
  18. I have few problems and send almost daily but have an account and do all the customs coding. The devil is in the details. I have had clients spend twice what I pay and then the package take twice as long. Issues only arise when UPS plane come a bit late and then there is only one delivery to lakeside daily so one more day delay. For Fedex / UPS if the plane arrives with package to Guadalajara before 9.30 am then usually it can clear customs by 11.30am (assumes declaration was done right and grandma didnt slip in cookies or other non document merchandise with your papers) and if customs cleared by 11.30 am then on truck for delivery lakeside. My office gets Fedex 1.30-2.15pm, UPS 2.45-345pm. I do hundreds of shipments a year and have only lost 1 document, some were lost for a week or two, disappeared during outbound customs search or incoming but then appeared in someone elses delivery or by regular mail. Fedex is quicker and they process Saturdays, UPS doesnt
  19. Protections here in Mexico are nowhere near the US. Here people that were selling potato chips the other week are now selling investments and banking products with no licensing required. They are berated and their jobs in danger if they don´t sell the products and if they do then earn good commissions while only reciting the official blurb and having little to no investment experience. Fraud and theft is very common and the banks will not give you records or video unless forced to and often take unreasonable positions. Only place in a Mexican institution what you can afford to lose as if you need to go after them it can be a very long and expensive process. Trust nobody with your money. In the US people can lose jobs and go to jail, or lose professional licenses so they have incentives to be honest. Be concerned about the return OF your money no the return ON it.
  20. I thought this better summarized what scabies is. I would like to add we has an outbreak at an LTC facility and traced it back to a woman who came in and did some of the resident's hair. Used the same instruments. You must report this to Public health who made us make up small bottles of medicine for ever person who came in contact with her. So all aides and nurses, many residents and therapists. Each needed 3 bottles. Then they said give 3 bottles to each person's family members, Since the pharmacy couldn't make that many. Myself and a few nurses worked for hours filling little bottles. Close to 500. I realized that was way overkill but State Nursing home rules. Scabies is an infestation of the skin by the human itch mite (Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis). The microscopic scabies mite burrows into the upper layer of the skin where it lives and lays its eggs. The most common symptoms of scabies are intense itching and a pimple-like skin rash. The scabies mite usually is spread by direct, prolonged, skin-to-skin contact with a person who has scabies. Scabies is found worldwide and affects people of all races and social classes. Scabies can spread rapidly under crowded conditions where close body and skin contact is frequent. Institutions such as nursing homes, extended-care facilities, and prisons are often sites of scabies outbreaks. Yes. Products used to treat scabies are called scabicides because they kill scabies mites; some also kill eggs. Scabicides to treat human scabies are available only with a doctor’s prescription; no “over-the-counter” (non-prescription) products have been tested and approved for humans.
  21. I think you should qualify your post by saying "foreigners, no lucrativo"". Mexicans and foreigners engaged in any kind of business activity here have to have domestic bank accounts for accounting and tax reporting purposes. Even if you rent out a casita, a Mexican account is necessary, and why would any Mexican or even a foreigner risk sending their funds to the US with crazy Trump threatening to stop the flow of money to Mexico. There are a lot of good banks and bankers in Mexico and the SMA situation, if it happened as reported, is a rare exception. I have never lost any sleep over it and put it in the same category of chance as the foreigners who are murdered in Mexico, maybe even less.
  22. Stay away from Dra. Paulina. I went to her at Maskaras clinic . I had been on Effexor for awhile and wanted to be re-evaluated as to whether I still needed them. She orders a new drug  4X cost of Effexor. Then I looked them up and they had the same active metabolite. So skipped .  A few months later I went to Quality care and made an appointment......yup she had moved to Quality. She orders me Ritalin . I was sleeping a lot , but I also really stayed up too late and so slept late in day.  The Ritalin was to keep me awake because I did not have adhd.   I did not take it.

    Oh yes Dra Ana . She was the first doctor I saw here. My blood work showed low and no levels of certain chemicals I needed.  First I had to wait over a half hour. The she sat sideways looking at her computer. Not writing just staring. No really assessment , few questions. Then the receptionist kept coming in because it was mother's day eve and wanted to go home. She never told the girl not to interrupt.  so I am still looking as well.

  23. I buy the EXACT same brand of product at a handful of differently located OXXO stores in our area. And the price of the product varies from OXXO to OXXO. Quit trying to inflict rigid logic. That's my suggestion. 😀
  24. The part about the insurance being automatically invalid has been debated for years. Some report that their insurance was contacted.... not just an agent....and said, "no cancellation". The part about it being illegal is certainly true. Subject to confiscation, well...... it is Mexico and anything is possible but often not probable. In practice.... it is done all the time and a lot of people are still driving their foreign plated car around afterwards. YMMV
