Re: There goes the neighborhood!!! Peru, Ecuador, etc.

I generally do not buy in to blaiming Washington for the ills of latin America, but this one is pretty much has a 'made in America' label. I park the blame for all this on the white house front lawn; between the trade war, and the war on immigrants, and generally being a moron, Trump has managed to...

Re: could chile buy the F-35? future of the Chilean military

The most common is factura promised but never delivered and the IVA pocketed. How does that one work? I don't think anyone's tried it on me yet.

Re: Housing market situation

so this interesting. we decided with the recent interest rate cuts by the Chilean central bank, to see what we could do about refinancing our house mortgage. I don't typically get too excited about a quarter point cut here or there. Not worth the hassle. my wife called our executive at the bank and...

I don't travel with a birth certificate and it's a requirement for a Canadian passport.......
I don't think it is if you're renewing within one year after your old passport expired.

I listened to a fascinating interview yesterday. guy who is a consultant for the MJ industry in the u.s. he explained why the united states is still technically not in violation of the 1960's international treaty on MJ prohibition, even though it is legal in so many states. It is simply because the...
