  1. AjijicStoic - you mentioned:The website he touted "SafeTravelInmexico.org - well, I was on it last night" BUT that website is not a registered/active domain - so maybe you spelled it differently last night? If you are not familiar with whois , it is a data lookup tool gives you the ability to look up the current registration data for domain names - and in this case, the domain ""SafeTravelInmexico.org" has not been registered - so there is nothing to access - ie This site can’t be reached safetravelinmexico.org’s server IP address could not be found. https://www.whois.com/whois/safetravelinmexico.org
  2.

  3. Didn't realize he moved back to Tucson - always enjoyed his posts - RIP!! He will be missed.
  4. Looking for a ride from Tucson for myself and 55 pound springer spaniel and some boxes...... my lease here in Tucson ends on 5-31, and they just raised the rent 30%, so I figure it is time for us to return. Dog will be 10 (born in Guadalajara) - starting to get arthritis - and I can get a portable kennel for him - as he is not too keen about strangers - and travels well and he did a round trip when he was younger. Number of boxes will depend on room available and price - have crossed the border several times and everything will be well marked. Anxious to return - really miss lakeside Please email me at chapalashelley@gmail.com
  5. Here is a reasonable writeup on the recent Laredo incident https://www.borderreport.com/hot-topics/border-crime/violence-erupts-in-nuevo-laredo-mexico-after-drug-cartel-leaders-arrest/
  6. Thanks Ferret - almost sweater weather from where I am coming from - but good point..........Lease here ends 6-1 which is where the May date came from.... Dog is actually a native - born in Guadalajara - so not a complete weather shock.
  7. Considering moving to Lakeside in late May - and wondering if I can find a ride from Tucson or even Laredo. Will have 55 pound dog - in carrier - and if room 10 to 12 small/book size boxes........please respond to post or email me potential cost - chapalashelley@gmail.com
  8. IT IS A JOKE.............. This day of the year! Feliz Dia de Los Santos Innocentes In Spain and Latin America, it is customary to make jokes of all kinds on this date. The media jokes or misrepresents their content in such a way that the information appears real. It is a freedom that media agents give themselves to unleash their sense of humor, an opportunity that they only have once a year. It is a tradition for newspapers to run entire pages of comic news, with the warning that it is April Fool’s Day, ranging from those that are an obvious mockery to any recent event, to those that seem serious and mislead the unsuspecting reader. April Fools Day is lived throughout the Spanish-speaking world.
  9. here is a good article - note the assumptions are "if everything goes well" and right now there are not a lot of reasons to think everything will go well. The first doses of an approved Covid vaccine will go to health care workers and residents and employees of long-term care facilities, then essential public servants like police officers, firefighters and transit workers as well as workers in food processing plants. Not until there are hundreds of millions of doses available — sometime in 2021 if all goes well — will the vaccine be offered to the general public. Adequate protection against Covid-19 is expected to require two doses of vaccine. Thus, if the entire country were to be immunized, more than 600 million doses of vaccine would have to be manufactured. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/22/well/live/covid-vaccine.html?
  10. Did get a quot from toyhauler - but he decided to rescind it when i said I wanted to think about it and tried to clarify the charges.
  11. Hoping to leave Tucson late May to return to Lake Chapala - with a medium size dog (50 pounds, springer spaniel) who will be crated. Can't take my car - as it can't be nationalized and i have a permanente visa - so hope to hitch a ride. Anyone traveling in that time frame that is willing to take us for some compensation? Or - other suggestions?
  12. Superlake has parchment paper - next to zip lock bags
  13. a knee brace may help you postpone surgery....... I have had mine for maybe 7 years - great for swimming, walking etc. Maybe pricey - as i recall, cost was $800 then - so perhaps looking at $1000 plus now - http://www.ossur.com/?PageID=13216
