  1. Have been buying NOB for over a week at $1.699 for regular a gallon. Mexico price dropped too?
  2. If you could,crazies would buy it all up and those who could benefit from it might die. Sadly, there are those types among us here.
  3. Sinaloa and D.F. More to come.
  4. So, are you taking these animals to be spayed/neutered, or who will do that so we are not just feeding and letting them multiply? Gotta know this info first.
  5. I am speaking for myself. That was an asinine response. Who else? No one cares whether you are interested in my experiences and what we do about health care, as I am replying to the OP and not you. So, piss off !
  6. Agree 100% with Rony ! We are Not in Mexico because of the health care services and anything the least bit serious, we travel North just as fast as we can ! Seen too many die here that should still be alive, and with God's help, we are not 2 of those. 21 years of living in Mexico 6 months a year.
  7. Walmart has cameras on their parking lot. I had my car keyed, and they looked and saw the guy do it. However, they said they could not read his plates when he drove off.
  8. Sounds like someone that posts here from that the Yucatan board. Playing with us.
  9. Thanks, Rony ! Hope all is good with you and Miss V ! Take care from me and R, and Double Trouble !
  10. Trying to reach the Lady Dentist in Chapala named Lourdes. Would very much appreciate any one that can give me her phone number. She is on the Main street in Chapala, upstairs. Thank you.
  11. Really, ten times over the years ! Impressive ! And one would have thought you were a resident expert on traveling around Mexico.
  12. Actually, wife and I were stopped and pulled over once there in Laredo and asked how much money we had with us. When we responded, they told us to show them and count it in front of them. That was about 14 years ago. Really curious that the same thing happened later that morning at the last checkpoint leaving Nuevo Laredo. Whatta ya think?
  13. Geez, give us a break ! Take your BS somewhere else. You know nothing about what type of people they are. My Mexican friends say they are trash. I think they know much better than you .
  14. I hear that because of the government attack on those stealing gasoline (around Salamanca, Gto. area, etc.) those sources of revenue have dried up, so these "gangs" have been hurting for money. As a result, they have spread out into extortion, drugs, kidnappings, and home invasions. Kinda what a lot of people say will happen when hard drugs are legalized and the drug revenue dries up. Maybe we are getting a preview of things to come.
  15. Just as any "Gringo Enclave" in Mexico, no one wants to report the truth about violence and killings in their "paradise", or else values, buyers, etc. will dry up. That should not be a surprise to anyone here who does not have their head stuck in the sand. Deny, deny, deny !
  16. Read in various Mexican Papers and Facebook posts about the terrible situations taking place in SMA and warnings to not go there, nor buy property there. People there are warned to shop, etc. in Queretaro. Seems the entire State of Guanajuato has become a dangerous place.
  17. You are correct, nothing in this World is "free" not even "Free Medicare for All", "Free College Tuition", "Welfare", "Free Housing", etc.
  18. The secret to that is to maintain a Primary Care doctor and easily establish appointments with them for a set time in the future. Our experience is about 2 months lead time, unless it is an emergency, then we get in sooner. Same applies to the Specialists, but we have enjoyed much less wait time with both, as getting on a "cancel" list has always allowed us to get something in about 10 days. YMMD, but we have been like this for almost the 11 years we have been on Medicare. Just a little planning and taking responsibility for your health care goes a LONG way.
  19. Actually, the Economists I follow say that the World would do themselves a big favor for their economies if they were to follow the lead of the US on economic policy. US economic leadership and policies continue to impress and set new highs.
  20. Agreed. NEVER (in Mexico, or anywhere else) offer any more info to officials than is absolutely necessary, as they often become confused and you will wind up regretting that you didn't give a quick and simple response to any question they ask you.Let them ask, don't volunteer !
  21. The US economy is stronger than it has been in lots of years, it is the other countries who have been and are having trouble with their economies. Lots of people are praying for a recession and fabricating all kinds of statistics and "warning signs" to encourage people to get scared. They will try every trick they can imagine to gain power and control. Don't become a sheep. Snowyco is trying to add to those scare tactics.
