Re: renewing US passport by mail

I sent in a passport for renewal via dhl with a return awb. The website says 2-3 weeks to get the renewal. Does anyone have experience with mail in US passport renewals in terms of actual time it took to get it back? I thought the website said 3-4 weeks, at least for normal processing times. I don'...

Re: renewing US passport by mail

I would not discount the option to travel for Santiago for the day as there seems to be many buses doing Coquimbo-La Serena-Santiago. My problem is, once I get off the bus I'd still have to figure out how to get wherever else I was going. Then get back in time, for the return trip. And I'm not a mo...

Re: cranberry juice

I thought it would be a healthy fruit choice to prevent uti's. Not being able to find cranberry juice, I had dried organic cranberries instead. It turns out they are actually much sweeter than I thought they would be, too sweet. No longer searching for cranberries. Thanks for the lead on D-mannose ...

Re: cranberry juice

when google translate cranberry, I get arandano... Arandano is blueberry. Maybe cranberry is too foreign a concept to have a word for it in Chile. Anyone know the Chilean word for cranberry, and/or where to buy cranberry juice? gracias Do you need it for medical reasons, or do you really just want ...

Re: Country home rental

I was considering it back in 2013. And I'm thinking about it again now. But it's hard to know for sure, if it would work out. It really sounds like a good thing for the right person(s), and I hope they show up, whoever they are.

Re: Chinese Space station crash - High probability for southern Chile

I read an article about a week ago, that said the same thing about Michigan. So I'm pretty confident it'll hit somewhere between the north and south pole.
