  1. Today
  2. We asked about the 3.00 T Mobile plan and they said it was no longer available. Another rep said if you are out of the US for 3 months they will cancel your number. I don’t know as we opted to take a different plan we can use in México unlimited and keep our phone number including 5 gb data. It works for us but it is not 3.00. I wish it were.
  3. So far no problem except texts don't work well but so far they also have a phone call option. Thx for info on the VOIP club. I have found they are also cracking down on commercial mail addresses such as handymail - and won't accept them - and still have not found a work around as friends address not an option
  4. Actually the dollar is stronger today than 30 days ago against the Euro and most other world currencies. The Mexican peso getting stronger against most world currencies in the same time period including the US dollar.
  5. Same as Larry A Be sure your cell is 4g LTE and a GSM network phone https://www.ebay.com/itm/293902916901?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D777008%26algo%3DPERSONAL.TOPIC%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20220705100511%26meid%3D7f8a0c2da17249b99ebb67d23d8d3390%26pid%3D101524%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26itm%3D293902916901%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26algv%3DRecentlyViewedItemsV2%26brand%3DT-Mobile&_trksid=p2380057.c101524.m146925&_trkparms=pageci%3A9e02cd63-06f2-11ee-b0e2-82c602018f2b|parentrq%3Aa16570481880ad333cf50617fffefd0c|iid%3A1
  6. Magic Jack is VOIP Many services, banks, brokerage, etc. will not text or call a VOIP number. More are joining the no VOIP every Month.
  7. Yesterday
  8. Gee I am glad I live in Ajijic Centro, I have air I can breath. although it is very hot here so from 10 am to 6 Pm I stay in my nice cool house with 18 inch thick walls....
  9. Yes there have been a few firebugs. Most likely the odd live cig butt too. But majority are combo of lightning strikes, super-dry forest, brush, and scrubland, and terrifically high winds. Thousands of mandatory evacuations...... some areas more than once. Many "stay at home" orders for smoke density alone ( my sister has experienced a few of those in Edmonton alone). You don't have firefighters coming from all over the world, and over a period of weeks, because a few sickos decided to play their game. Again...... 9.4 million acres just to today .........
  10. There have been multiple people charged. This is just one guy: https://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/cold-lake-area-man-facing-10-arson-charges-after-string-of-wildfires-blazes-rcmp
  11. 17.28 close today. I recall buying a new car in summer or fall 2015 and the rate was 16.80. This close today is the highest since then. In real estate, the deeds are in pesos. When we bought in 2005 the exchange rate was 10:1. When we sold in 2020, the rate was 21:1. The Mexican authorities would say we more than doubled our money. Far from the truth.
  12. From CTV News canada on line report today: ".....Canada's 2023 fire season is on track to be one of the worst in the country's history. More than 440 fires are burning across the country, forcing people from their homes and others to stay inside due to wildfire smoke pollution. Fires stretch thousands of hectares in provinces like B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Nova Scotia and the Northwest Territories. Charred earth and burnt forests are left behind in the path of the blazes as fire crews tirelessly work to contain the flames. To date, 3.8 million hectares of land have been burned or is under fire as of June 7, ..... ( 3.8x2.4 = 9.4 million acres )
  13. About fire Sunday on and around the Libramiento last Sunday: https://theguadalajarareporter.net/index.php/news/news/lake-chapala/59910-firefighters-scramble-to-quell-multiple-blazes
  14. I'm seeing reports those fires were set. Same problem we have around here. That plus the $%&/()s who throw their cigarette butts out the window.
  15. Try attaching a filter to the back of a square fan. Close off your house and have 2 or 3 of these fans around. You can just tape or tie the filters to the back of the fans.
  16. That Sci-fi movie would be Blade Runner.
  17. magic jack can be added to a smart phone - less than $50 a year combined with expess vpn for $99 https://www.magicjack.com/account/mjLandingpages.do?page=index
  18. I am in Canada right now and the air quality has been severely affected by the fires. I have never known anything like it. The sun is red and the atmosphere feels like we're in a Sci-Fi movie ... really weird to be having conditions like these, never before experienced - the world is not the world I was lucky enough to have grown up in
  19. Yes they are trying something new. Spread the word around.
  20. Gosh, 8:30 in the morning. I have been driving by Brunos since I arrived lakeside in 1997. I think Brunos was open in those days, but never in the mornings.
  21. I have / use one of these. https://www.ebay.com/itm/293902916901?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D777008%26algo%3DPERSONAL.TOPIC%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20220705100511%26meid%3D7f8a0c2da17249b99ebb67d23d8d3390%26pid%3D101524%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26itm%3D293902916901%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26algv%3DRecentlyViewedItemsV2%26brand%3DT-Mobile&_trksid=p2380057.c101524.m146925&_trkparms=pageci%3A9e02cd63-06f2-11ee-b0e2-82c602018f2b|parentrq%3Aa16570481880ad333cf50617fffefd0c|iid%3A1
  22. Can you give me the 'name' of the T-Mobile account that you have for $3/month? If that plan is readily available to use in Mexico it would certainly solve the 'bank text to Mexico' problem that many folks have. Cheap burner phone with a T-Mobile account like that and one is home free. Thanks
  23. To scoffers and non-scoffers. They are on watch for money movements as one small way to stop cartel dollars flowing ( never mind simple tax cheats). And don't be dumb enough to think you won't be suspect becasue of your appearance. Bad guys know this, and hire mules of all sorts to carry cash.
  24. Read this from BBC news re: fires blazing thru all of Canada and causing smoke problems in U.S. ( never mind Canada itself). It describes in detail how to protect yourself from smoke, and proper use of N95 masks to help. Also has a few other tips. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-65843485
  25. This year in particular, smoke from fires combined with the heat has impacted my breathing. I’m seeking solutions. Keeping windows closed during fires helps a bit. A room air purifier should help cleanse the air. What about an air conditioner with PM2.5 filters or HEPA filters? Do they work and they available here or in Guad.? Any other solutions? Thanks.
  26. Thank you. That makes sense because I have not heard such a long string of bells from previous SAT festivals. I knew there had to be something a bit different this year.
