  1. What I think is from my experience are a lot of people in our age group are entering Alzheimer's and dementia and don't realize it....yet. I only wish I could ask them to see a neurologist. I have facts and names from years past of people doing strange things and turn out to be just that. We should be patient and remember we are retired.
  2. Areas where I lived before There was some dust. I now live in the Country Club. I have a carport but less dust. Just curious why did you move?
  3. I think I read where climate can affect the life of a battery. When I was in the Lakeside area my batteries seem to last a long time. Here in San Carlos where it can be very hot not so long. About a month ago my battery died. Took it to Auto Zone where they changed it. The price for a new. battery was over 3000 pesos (gasp) they really have increased in price. Sense I bought mine a year and a half before I got an adjustment cost me 1500 pesos.
  4. Check out Dolarapp. I did not misspell. It is a Mexican company hence dolar.
  5. They have their venders to stock their own products hence Walmart does not have to pay stockers, self check out less cashers, buy your own bags, have elderly pack your bags for tips only. All Walmarts and Sam's are painted with the same paint a savings I am sure. In Mexico lower wages.Employees have attitude when you go down an isle like you are bothering me. Prices about the same. What a profit maker. My first job 16 years old bagging groceries for Publix Super Markets. Paid 1.60 dollars an hour. Taught customer is important. Smiles, etc.
  6. When people ask me why I moved to Mexico 22 years ago. I just say Tequila and women. Seriously the cost of living here in San Carlos is rising a lot. I have cut back on eating out. However I do like the air here at sea level. One small help is I just got my Bienestar debit card. Not much but helps. Wahoo.
  7. I burned my beds and threw out all linens pillows etc. Sprayed the rooms with just plain old bug spray. I also threw out my wife and extended family.
  8. Got mine done at IMSS free plus free meds. Made an appointment one week later done. 20 minutes pain free.
  9. Here in San Carlos, no traffic lights, no traffic jams. Just fun. I just spent 3 months in Jocotepec and had to go to Chapala once Ajijic a few times. Guess what I took the bus. Much easier. Very costly. 12 pesitos.
  10. 18.84 as of 7:00 am my SS increase + inflation not good.
  11. It was met as sarcasm. Yes! the governments of the U. S. and Mexico have failed.
  12. I wished they controlled 100%. Lets face it they handle problems efficiency and quickly, they are already involved in everything, better military great at logistics,
  13. FYI, I always have two different brands. You are smart for checking vitals. I am now sea level 97 and 98.
