  1. When I was in Havana, I stopped outside a window of a house to listen to the music they were playing in the living room. When they noticed me, they stopped playing and invited me in. They gave me some orange juice and introduced me to brother, mother, sister, everyone. We had a good time, a very good human time.
  2. I use a service in the states that receives my mail, scans the envelope and sends me an email to let me know. I can view the scan and decide what to do next: have them scan the contents, forward it, or shred it. This might not be the best option if you're only going to be away a few months, but thought I'd toss it out there in case. I've been using this service for over 10 years and it's been handy. Most all my dealings are electronic, but there's still a small amount of paper involved.
  3. A street hustler guy I know stopped by the table where I was having coffee with a Mexican friend. After he went on his way, I told my friend how I always had trouble understanding that guy. My friend said: Don't worry. I couldn't understand him, either. 🙂
  4. In case you don't know, TOB is secret insider code for: https://www.insidelakeside.com/ but don't tell anybody else....😎
  5. Okay, have fun and if I see you around, I'll try and say hello. I'm from Guanajuato but am in Chapala off and on. Also, don't mind the trolls and the rude/unpleasant people. Most people are cool, but there's always a few who live to put others down.
  6. Got into Chapala from Guanajuato this afternoon. All tolls went up in February, except the 22 peso one near Silao. On the way back last time, wasn't sure because I took the scenic (aka free) route. Lots of fun little towns, but slow.
  7. Could be on some roads I suppose, but I travel between Chapala and Guanajuato every two weeks and have the tolls memorized... Well, I did anyway...Plus I spoke with the lady at the caseta about the increase.
  8. I traveled from Guanajuato to Chapala on Feb 13. When I returned on Feb 16, the tolls had gone up. So much for thinking they only raise tolls in January...
  9. Thanks for the feedback. If you have a suggestion for a better and more easily understood term/phrase, I'd be happy to hear it. I sometimes use the phrase acknowledgement message, but I'm not sure if that sounds too clunky. Open to ideas.
  10. Yes, that's a nice feature of gmail. It's also something quite different in that you'd have to manually reschedule all your messages every so often if you only wanted them to be sent if something happens to you.
  11. The system sends messages on the schedule that is described on the page I mentioned. These are what you're referring to. I call these system messages reminders or alerts in order to distinguish them from user created messages. These system messages / alerts contain a link that you click which then informs the system that you're still with us. The overall how often is different for each user. It depends on how you set your personal message or messages.
  12. Reminders are sent 14, 7, 3, and 1 days before your message is due to go out. Not all values are applicable, depending on the length of the "fuse" you place on your message or messages. This page explains in more detail how the alert schedule is determined. Each time you respond, the schedule is recalculated. https://lastlanding.com/docs/alert
  13. This might be of interest to you. It's made for exactly this type of situation (which I'm in, too) and more. I call it a digital dead man switch. https://lastlanding.com My cat started me on this. Didn't want her to go hungry just because I might have the temerity to keel over. Happy to answer any questions.
  14. I love the way you have trained your doggies to pick stuff up. The only thing my dogs pick up is food if it falls on the floor, and they don't give it back.
  15. Sometimes people start saying something negative about me or my dog. Here's what I do: I just keep going on my way. Not worth engaging. I know my dog. You know yours. End of story. Have a good run.
