  1. Not quite. But only taking on certain short-term behaviour/training cases these days. Email for more info.
  2. You'd have a lot better off to go to "El Pechugón"......... angled corner window near Mia's (and the now defunct Ajijic pawn shop). IMO Dusty Chicken is always a little overcooked, where El Pechugón are on a rotisserie, not a grill, and much juicier. And close to your home too!
  3. My cousin in Canada has had both done, one twice. Long, difficult, and PAINFUL recovery period. A friend who lives Lakeside had it a few years ago and said it was the worst thing he'd ever endured ( done in Guad by shoulder specialist). Sorry.........
  4. You forgot the person who spends 23 and hands the clerk a $500.........😠
  5. Like my wise old Auntie Carrie used to say: "Never kick a skunk! " 🤣🤣🤣
  6. Ah but Ferret knows I am WAY older than she is.........🤣
  7. My good friend, in bureau-speak that's from another century. 😉 Just like it used to be you could request as many "original" death certificates as you wanted at the original time of issue, with each having a separate number. Some of my translations were in that era. Then, they started issuing jjts ONE original, and as many notarized copies as you asked for at the time of issue. So translations changed to "copy of" from "original number xxxx."
  8. No we personally don't BUT I can tell you this from my years as certified translator. When Canadians died death certificates had to go to Rev Can and Service Can (separately). Service Can said send as is.... we will translate. Rev Can said " they MUST be translated and certified ". If the amounts warrant, suggest you get on that becasue as you well know, they have the bigger stick...........
  9. OP certain made it clear ....I was charged $700 pesos for a used golf club that cost $21 US by customs
  10. .I can have ishop keep it out of customs. ...... I don't believe you OR they have the power, but I would ask them for an answer on that one.
  11. And they should ROAST IN HELL for that. For those dumping cats too 🤬
  12. I assume you have a Laredo address with iShop or the like. You DO realize that anything destined to Mexico that arrives at this type of mail service location (Laredo or other) makes a mandatory trip thru customs ( ergo a broker gets involved)? And they don't care what an invoice says----- you're at the whim of the person on duty at the time as to assigned value. IF I'm correct, then why would it have to be Laredo? You could ship items anywhere convenient for someone making back-and-forth runs. I got a double whammy when I bought something I could ONLY get in Canada and really needed. Lesson well and truly learned.
  13. I'm with you Fred! A European grocery chain ( Holland?? can't remember) has recently installed special check-out lines for lonely people who crave a visit and some human interaction with the check-out cashie as in days gone by. In that lane, you can take all the time you want.... have a chat... etc. Not exactly the same as the "what... PAY? ME?" folks.... but you get my drift.
  14. Not enough need for pay-as-you-play FAX svce and too chicken to use them or free ones anyway. Security freak here... private browsing, history deleted every time desktop turned off, etc. The kind person mailing ours from within Ontario is much appreciated and will be more than good enough for us.
  15. Our paper returns have to go to Sudbury tax centre. Interested as to why you would have a Winnipeg number??
  16. And do you file as non-resident? With usual due date June 30?
  17. Thank you too, but the BEST news is a returning Canadian snowbird has offered to take the paper returns and mail them from Ontario. YAY and a big applause to the Hero of the Day!!!
  18. In Canada, I grew "regular" oregano and "Greek" oregano. Same family but distinctively different taste ( leaves not quite equal either). No idea about "Mexican"..... 3rd, one of these, or??? but I suspect would not be in the supermarket bottles noted.
  19. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/articles/9304-st--johns-wort Not sure I'd want to mess around with this... or the known ( not always but still....... ) side effects.
  20. Well done! Ours aren't ready either and don't have to be there until June 30 but I always send early to be safe. IF the FAX machine tells me "rec'd" ( they used to, but now???) I'll assume so, but will call a couple of weeks later to be sure...............
  21. $900 pesos is a lot less than I paid if she's young and friendly, probably NOT feral, just homeless please be sure to leave water out for her 24/7, and thank you for caring
  22. be prepared for a raft of replies.... all citing "their" fav as the best for pharmacies, do your research since NONE are the "best" for all meds and you need to shop around (I use 3 plus get one thing at Costco)
  23. it ONLY applies to international mail ( reason given is slow mail delivery). It's in the Sec 217 area down lower ( near completion and sending) instructions. Can't find it right now, but if you go to cra website, and go to forms and instructions for your particular case, follow your nose. If you still don't find it send me a pm and when I have more time I'll find it for you.
  24. Many could learn from this resilient, tough young man. FOURTH operation. FOURTH time unable to carry on with his life though no fault of his own. Mucha suerte amigo!!!
  25. Apparently we can FAX our tax returns this year ( non-resident, not the "usual" return). This would be great but haven't needed to FAX anything for years. Where is the best place to go for several pages each person? Gracias
