BWU-NEWS

To keep things moving, we're going to include the commercial ads we've received in this issue. As we begin to receive more commercial (business) ads each month, we'll start sending a separate issue. Also, some commercial ads may be time sensitive so we don't want to hold them up waiting for the end of the month.

Thanks everyone for sending your ads. People are telling me they now look for the BWU to show up in their e mail inbox. 360 subscribers want to read what you have to say so please keep the ads coming. - BWU Editor.

Thanks for all the info on the road / immigration conditions. I am driving down next week, leaving San Diego on Sunday,10/29, so please keep the info coming in. I was unclear about the stamping of the visas issue...can anyone clarify? Just can't wait to get home to T.S.!!! Got needles. - Jane, jasi57 (-at-) juno.com


Could Paul Shortell include his email, or comment on whether the remission procedure is cheaper or simpler than regular money wire? I just set up a PIN protected wire procedure with WF, so I will be able to call rather than walk in to a branch, give my PIN, and money will go from my US account to my Banorte account, but it still costs $50-$60. One more restriction, in Banorte I find I can only move 5,000 USD per day to a third party account. So I will plan ahead. - Tom

For Rosemary, I can vouch for the Opera browser on Mac OSX 10.3 at least works fine with Banorte por Internet. You'll need MS Office if you want to get along with the business world, but you probably already knew that. Tom Gafford, tag (-at-) gafford.com.
