  1. We have OOma and tried it and wouldn't work. I am trying to get a direct answer from technical support/ We can use capitol one 360 as our main source of getting monies from the United state at our ATM. No issue there.
  2. Get A VPN like Express VPN wher you can choose from many sites and you wont be having differnt IP adresses. You can choose one address based on the state and make it static as in every time you log in it will show the same IP address. I have also begun to have problems with Capitol one. I have capitol one 360 checking Used to send verification codes through my email and talked to customer service and they said they were switching everyone over to text message or voice message a security code. They were true to their word. Even companies like ATT are using double verification to pay one bills . Issue for me was my wife was out of country with the cell phone with the number on fille and many sites that use double verification would only send and SMS to that phone number
  3. I have heard from friends in Puerto Vallarta that they really have had not one issue with their claims. My wife has it.
  4. We purchased a Berkey water filter for our drinking water and shower heads. Best one can buy. The locally sold home water filters do not take out fluoride nor arsenic nor pesticides and volatile organic chemicals and other compounds. I asked a company that installs whole house filters for the last water test they did on their system. All I got back was a test for certain bacteria and thats it. I asked about all the other tests they should do. They said too expensive and I can get the unit installed and do them myself and do I think Ciello and Bonafanti test their water. After hearing that wonderful sales pitch I went right to Amazon and ordered a big Berkey. Takes care of all of our drinking needs and the shower filters for the rest of our needs . Cant beat it. https://www.berkeywater.com/
  5. Look into Vumi expat insurance. The insurance office across from quality care sells it. pretty darn good and everything is explained on the website. Look at the bronze policy and what it offers.
  6. so when I see a souped up camaro or mustang etc on 54d autopista doing 200km+ an hour in could be a federal cop?
  7. What kind of Guns can you have in your home according to the new law? https://themazatlanpost.com/2019/03/28/mexico-what-kind-of-guns-can-you-have-in-your-home-according-to-the-new-law/
  8. Which funeral homes are geared to the expat community and approx what would a prepaid plan cost? Can one negotiate?
  9. Border walls are big business–and not just in Trump’s America The companies that specialize in dividing the world are thriving. https://www.fastcompany.com/90293157/border-walls-are-big-business-and-not-just-in-trumps-america
  10. We live in San Antonio T in a fracc and we have had water issues for the last 2 weeks and its getting worse. Our fracc has had to bring in water quite a few times. Water is being shut off at night to conserve. We get our water from the San Antonio T well and have been told that it is very low. Its getting to be a real pain. And when the water comes out it is murky. Just received our Berkey water filter from the states. News from HOA is not very optimistic. Perhaps when the snowbirds leave it will get better.
  11. Just got an email from the Chapala Reporter ... 82.8 million pesos for carretera reconstruction project. I am not a subscriber. The developers should love this . Is this planned because of all the future development? Food for thought... 4 story parking lot planned in Chapala and now this?
  12. correct. I am on jersey 2 and it wont work. Because of all my banking I have stayed on Jersey 2 because of static IP address. I fear the moving to 3 to watch Prime and then moving back would change my IP address of jersey 2 and the banks would shut me down in a NY minute
  13. Tlaquepaque. Indepencia has a few galleries. And this is worth looking into.. You can rent for private tour of artist galleries . We spent a few hours photographing some of the local graffiti https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/263150?user_id=32319148&ref_device_id=24bdd17d4f9eb72fed344eed0794cb29b25dfdeb&s=41&fbclid=IwAR0fAQUwhl0350uMDNGEVIsjKPfc27deUDjQpgn05tFWqnm0o6Bp-Y0LE5s&_branch_match_id=618947970456324527
  14. What amazed me about OXXO is that bottled water in some of them is more expensive than coca cola. Coca Cola sure is pushing that stuff. At least its made here with cane sugar instead of poisonous high fructose corn syrup back in the states and other places.
  15. Intended for information. Walmart owns in Mexico Bodega Aurrera Express - 1,026 Bodega Aurrera - 520 Mi Bodega Aurrera - 364
  16. Dr. Youcha is the only one Lakeside as far as we know with a cedula and he had been doing this work for 40 years . He is a doctor. Went to chiropractic school at Northwestern University and is the 60th certified chiropractor in Mexico. Teaches special classes in Mexico City and other Latin American countries . He has an associate, Roberto who I hear is also very good and also someone who comes in to do acupuncture. Dr. Youcha is the real deal. We have been to quite a few in the states and My wife's first visit was pretty amazing considering she was walking real straight with no pain after her first visit. Initial visit for my wife was 1750 pesos. Each session afterwards has been 750.
  17. It is for sale..... https://ajijictoday.com.mx/property/cs25ot3193-ola-la-car-wash/
  18. Yesterday I logged in and the verification is by text only on our accounts. Called them and they said they are switching everyone. I wonder what caused that to happen. ALL my other banks give me a choice.
  19. Express VPN has the option of having a static IP address.
  20. That ATM runs out of money by Friday and doesn't get a delivery according to the guard until Tuesday. Also, if you have poor eyesight it's almost impossible to read because the sun is shining in, number 1 and the screen is too damn dark. Also take your money out of the slot ASAP because if it stays in there too long while you are reading the receipt it can suck the money back. That happened to a friend.
  21. https://www.google.com/search?q=yakult+probiotic+drink&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS710US710&oq=Yakult&aqs=chrome.1.0l6.2598j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  22. You know that one of the best foods containing probiotic is raw sauerkraut. At the Tuesday market there is a man who makes the best raw sauerkraut I have ever tasted . Ferments for 22 days and he uses Himalayan Sea salt. There is another sauerkraut maker there who sells theirs in plastic containers. That's not the same person. This person puts it in glass jars. When you walk in this man is to the left. Yogurt is pasteurized and homogenized and the probiotics are basically dead. Easy to make kefir if you can have someone get you from the states kefir grains. We make kefir coconut water because we don't eat dairy. You can buy the grains at amazon mexico.If done right the grains multiply and will last you for years. https://www.amazon.com.mx/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_12?__mk_es_MX=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=kefir+grains&sprefix=kefir+grains%2Caps%2C245&crid=2I59W5SABYFD9
  23. I have no issues whatsoever with getting email verification from capital one. What I do know if you set it up notifications from the beginning it can get real weird. we have 2 accounts with email verification. One has a choice of 2. The other has a choice of one and they were setup at the same time. I use a VPN with a static IP address which is real helpful. I also noticed that for me at least the capitol one website works far better than with Firefox than with chrome.
