  1. There's another around Santa Anita. If you want a Weber, you could "showroom" it in the store but buy from whoever has the best price -- probably Amazon. That's what we did. https://goo.gl/maps/fq3rPgNYhps3MuC26 LQ
  2. For what it's worth, I've had it done twice in the U.S. (two shot cervical discs) and it was great. Lasted more than a year in both cases, and didn't fully stop working. The passage of time and worsening of the cause work against the duration, but a skilled physiatrist guided by live imagery should nail the location. Be advised that trouble with clotting rules out epidural cortisone. Any bleeding within the (enclosed) spinal column and you'll be paralyzed, full stop. The pressure will have no way to escape. No need to worry; they simply won't do the procedure if it's unsafe. LQ
  3. I'd tend to doubt it, but can't say for sure. It needs to be supplied with a minimal amount of pressure, and gravity alone may not be enough, unless the supply hose involved a substantial vertical drop. However, the surest way to know is to contact High Sierra. I'm sure you won't be the first to ask. Buena suerte! LQ
  4. Departed GDL yesterday (2022-11-23) for New York, on Delta. Checked no bags, checked-in online, never went to the counter. Showed my U.S. passport and green card to a Delta gate agent and asked if they needed to do anything special. Nope. LQ
  5. Absolutely. The whole subject of bedding is crazy-subjective, even worse than restaurant recommendations. Nonetheless, WRT mattresses, we are very pleased with a king we bought at the tiny place called Colchonera del Descanso, at the top of San Jose near la carretera in San Antonio, on the corner. Looks can deceive. https://goo.gl/maps/1cXnqahU1c6bKJgQ7 WRT sheets, I'm sure Bed Bath and Beyond can hook you up. But, if you already have occasion to go to Costco (usually Santa Anita for us), look for the house-brand product with the ordinary name Kirkland Signature Juego de Sábanas. We bought a king set (with four pillow cases) for around $90 US, and liked them so much we ordered a second. https://www.costco.com.mx/Hogar-y-Bano/Blancos-del-Hogar/Sabanas-y-Fundas/Kirkland-Signature-Juego-de-Sabanas-King-Size/p/VA1113499 https://goo.gl/maps/grc4o67bsQAwy4GUA LQ
  6. Was this at the municipal building on Hidalgo near the police station, or somewhere else. I see there's also a DIF location, but I guess that's State. https://goo.gl/maps/GymVixhwP27M4GS58 LQ
  7. The next time you do two-factor on it, take a screenshot and send it to me. We'll figure it out. Remember, there are three kinds of smartphones: Google Pixels and Samsung Galaxies, which are premium devices. iPhones, which are premium devices. The rest of the noisy, clanky, half-compromised budget devices from myriad providers world-wide, that may be based on a (usually outdated) Android version but then mucked up good and proper by their no-account manufacturers. In the case of #3, who knows what's going on under the hood. Maybe Xiaomi or some such wants to discourage use of Google services. There's no telling. Send me a screenshot of your Gmail login screen, if you like. LQ ps. I include Samsung, above, because they're made in the free world by a huge company that sweats its reputation.
  8. Doesn't. Matter. 2FA will roll-out everywhere. You can't drop such a change on two billion users all at once, so it's staged. LQ
  9. There are a series of postings. This one seemed more informative. LQ
  10. I wouldn't put up with that. Are these Apple devices? Though it's not recommended, you can certainly make an "app password" for each device and be done with it. https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833?hl=en An "app password" is a password you create and authorize for a single purpose. It's shown to you once, when you create it, but you can never see it again, you can only destroy it. When you create one, give it a name, like "Tingting's iPhone." Then login with your regular account (tingting@gmail.com?) and the 16-digit app password -- not your usual account password. You're done. LQ Detail: The usual purpose for "app passwords" is when an automated system must login to a Google account. For example, this forum software right here sends out emails using a Gmail account. But there's no human attending that process, thus no person on hand to login all the time. Instead, the software likely uses one of these custom app passwords to authorize access to Gmail and send it's notification messages.
  11. I'm always given the opportunity, after a successful 2FA login, to not be challenged again "on this device." I'm not sure why some folks report having to use two-factor every time. As a guess, it could be that if your phone can be picked up and used by anybody -- that is, you don't have a PIN or pattern to enter, or a biometric check like fingerprint or face recognition -- Google services running on your phone will know this. In that case, always requiring 2FA is reasonable: a thief can get into your phone, but at least he can't access your Google stuff. It's not at all Google's intention to require 2FA every time on every device, so if that's what you experience, there's a reason. [For folks who just can't figure out why they get a 2FA challenge on every use, there is a "bigger hammer" method involving app passwords, but that takes an extra step to set up.] LQ ps. I'm not some crank on the internet. I'm an almost-retired Googler, still have a badge, etc., etc.
  12. It's legit. https://www.theverge.com/2021/10/5/22710421/google-security-2fa-inactive-account-management In particular, users who haven't configured a recovery phone number or email account will be notified first, but it'll be every user eventually. Everything about 2FA is good and right and easy to do. One can set it up in less time than it took to type this message. After your device (phone, tablet, laptop ...) has passed 2FA once (by text message, automated call, etc.), you can choose to whitelist that device. We can't make this any easier. Not confident you can distinguish legitimate emails from scammy ones? Go here instead: https://myaccount.google.com/security LQ
