Re: Squatters

That is why you do credit and background checks before renting, include clauses stopping the sub-lease of properties, among many other steps when renting. Wow, like the things that a good lawyer would suggest someone do? :mrgreen: Let me guess, a good lawyer is a lot cheaper than dealing with a squ...

Re: TransferWise Charging 3%-4% Now

TransferWise today are charging me 3%-4% for sending from abroad to CLP account (2%-3% a few months ago). I wonder if this is at all related to a drop in travel and other international business. With less demand for currency exchange, it might be harder for them to exchange outside of the tradition...

The local Walmart here in a rural midwest town is grossly understaffed and is actively looking for workers. The help wanted signs are up all around. My son works at the local McDonalds and he temporarily stopped in mid March because I didn't like the way things looked and they were ok with it. They ...

Re: Leaving the USA

That said, watch the forum for news on the boarder opening. I suspect there will be a "soft opening" at some point in the next few months , probably with a 14 day quarantine for all arrivals. Wow that just speaks volumes! I'd find it incredulous and hard to believe but that's probably the truth. Th...

Let me add: I think he is pushing the drugs because he wants people to think he is actually doing something when he can't do jack without getting in the way. He should have been doing something back in January.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

at this point, any idiot politician or government official that starts talking about "opening the economy" or returning to "normal", that is not followed by anything less than a full throated "I don't know" or "we don't know", I instantly put in the box of information sources to 'never to be truste...

Yea, just what this pandemic needs, "let's pray it away" Pence managing this. https://amp.usatoday.com/amp/4887566002 Perhaps he will invite some of the mullahs in Iran and priest from that church in Korea for a prayer meeting at the oval office. Pence is a great person to lead the fight against Co...
