  1. I'll probably regret this. Stopped in today and saw that they have a nice quantity of black licorice. Sorry, no Twizzlers (but that's not really licorice). They even had the Red Vines in the 16oz packages. Also Australian licorice.
  2. This new location makes it perfect though when going to Costco, less than 5 minutes away.
  3. Coming back from the Costco on Lopez Mateos this morning I noticed that there is a new Home Depot going in. It's located on the right side as you head south, not far from the new Galerias mall. Couldn't see when it will open but from outward appearances it should be fairly soon. I wonder if they will close the old store on Lopez Mateos just north of the periferico? Would seem strange to have 2 so close together. I'm looking forward to seeing it open as the old store was always a hassle to get in and out of.
  4. I also like Beto a lot. Just be aware that the better the iron worker is the busier they are. Don't expect next day service.
  5. Vitacilina is also another popular substitute for Neosporin.
  6. Same here. Although going north on Lopez Mateos, right around where the outlet stores are, there was what looked like at least a 6 car pileup. From what we could see driving by going south there were 2 or 3 cars that had their front ends under the rear of the car in front of them. Typical going too fast, following too close, and not paying attention.
  7. What if you're not home when they try to deliver the letter? Will they keep trying or is there some where you could go to pick it up in person?
  8. Maybe it depends on the plan you have. They ask us to renew ours every year.
  9. Yes, just opened recently. Just south of the Costco on the right side as you're going south. You can see the Liverpool store closest to Lopez Mateos.
  10. Yeah, that's my biggest complaint. I really like my avatar. It suits me. With my shaved head I really look naked without the beard!
  11. Oh I'm hoping you're right. The first time it was from the clerk at the vehicle license dept. in Ixtlahuacan then when we got home I asked one of the workers that is doing work on our home and he said that it was correct. I think it's bs also but these are weird times.
  12. I heard from two sources today that as of July 1st men must be clean shaven, no beards or mustaches. All because of covid-19 and face masks. I haven't been without a beard for at least 30 years, not happy. As prevalent as mustaches are here in Mexico I don't know how this will go over.
  13. Good to know. My wife received her payment, direct deposited, to our account in the U.S. about 4 weeks ago. Still nothing on my deposit to our Mexican account. I receive the 1099 form delivered right to our house so if I receive a check I hope it doesn't get lost.
  14. That's an idea. I've been there quite a few times for other things and have never seen them but could ask. I know, that's where I first saw them but was hoping to find some closer.
  15. I'm looking to find about 5 of these wood posts. I know that I can get them in Michoacan but wonder if I could find them in this area?
  16. My wife has her SS check deposited directly to our credit union in the states, she received the stimulus payment last week. I wonder if mine is being delayed, held up, because I have a Mexican account?
  17. Am I reading this wrong? From your link: ACA notes that the IRS requires the use of a U.S. based bank account for direct deposit of the recovery rebates with an exception made in the case of an individual receiving U.S. Social Security benefits, in which case the individual will have created an account with the Social Security Administration and personally inputted the information allowing direct deposit into his or her foreign account. From this I would be receiving a deposit to my Mexican account.
  18. Not me, but I made sure they saw your responses. It's the least we can do for all the wonderful people and business here.
  19. If you want to be able to have your favorite local business still here when this crisis is over we should be looking for ways to make this happen. Please take a few minutes to watch this video and help out if you can.
  20. I gave up on cutting my hair ages ago. My beard isn't quite as long but my avatar has a striking resemblance.
  21. Just an update. A Mexican friend of ours had an appointment at IMSS in Tlajomulco and was told that the oncology and nephrology departments were still honoring appointments.
