    Problems with Vaccines.. past and present.

    I would switch to the Pfizer as if you plan to travel it's accepted pretty much world wide. I had 2 Sinovac (March/April) and 2 Pfizer (Aug/Sept) with no side effects.

    Customer Service and Sales job

    With a base salary of $2.75 USD per hour, good luck finding anybody. I think the sugar cane pickers make more than that.

    Problems with Vaccines.. past and present.

    I had my fourth vaccine yesterday. 2 Sinovac in the DR and 2 Pfizer in Alberta. So far I have not turned into a Zombie, not sick at all, testicles are fine, (thanks for caring lol). The only thing so far is the arm is a bit sore from where they injected the vaccine. Now I can access pretty much...

    Haitians at USA/Mexico border

    You have to admire their stamina getting from Haiti to Brazil then doing the trek north to the US boarder only to be loaded up and shipped back.

    First Place You Visited In DR

    We did a road trip there a few years ago. It was beautiful. After 14 years ocean front we might try the mountains in the next few years for a change of scenery and climate.

    First Place You Visited In DR

    My first time to the DR my wife wanted to buy property here. The hotel we stayed in was great but AI's are all pretty much the same. What convinced me was we went to the beach in Bavaro in front of the old decrepit building (that looks like its from the Flintstones) and had a ice cold beer at a...

    It’s the time to donate to the arts

    The few cultural exhibits I have been dragged to (kicking and screaming like a little girl) where attended to, IMO, by nothing but a bunch of elitist snobs. I much prefer to donate to causes that will benefit people that need it, not wealthy people looking to get a better Rembrandt or a bigger...

    Sloppy Concrete Work ork

    My first year in the DR was probably the most educational here. Over 2 days I watched 2 different paint crews in a friends apartment. The first crew came in and painted the walls. The second crew came in and spray painted the doors and trim. They got overspray on everything. The first crew came...

    Mortgage interest rates drop

    Thanks for the clarification. Those rates are ridiculously high compared to the rest of the world. When we sold are condo we discuss doing some private financing with a new buyer but when you realize how hard it is to evict someone in the DR we scrapped that idea. Our theory is that if you...
