    Looking for a company to pack, build and move a crate with paintings, few ceramics, etc. back to the US

    Thank you all for the assist. I will try AeroNex Cargo in Doral, Florida. See what they say. I never imagined it would be complicated as foreigners move in and out of countries all the time. I don't mind the cost, but for me, not particularly in my young years, and preferring not to drive...

    Total Confusion abt Residents’ Right to Get Vaccinated

    I got vaccinated in early March. I don‘t drink but my husband does. I saw the first such announcement on Facebook posted by thr Ministry of Health. Didn’t think it was a rumor. Similarly, on an NPR show, a Mayo Clinic expert was saying that chronic, heavy drinking supresses your immune...

    Best VPN service in Cabarete

    You need a US VPN service. I use smartdnsproxy.net for $5 a month, I can do just smart dans or smart dns plus vpn. But you'd better explain what you need it for because like Bred said, from your question, it sounds like you may have misunderstood what it is for.

    Hot dogs no pork

    At PriceSmart in Santiago, they carry Hebrew National all beef, and Kirkland all beef dinner dogs. If you have an account with them, they'll send them to you (delivery extra). Only problem is that you got to keep checking till you find them, and then buy several packages as they're not...

    Help: My Hair Feels Like Scrub Brush

    I thought oil would clog pores if used on face. I have tried coconut oil in my hair. Doesn't do anything other than when wearing it. I have lots and lots of thick hair. Used to be a bit way, now with age is coarse as hell (especially the lower layers). I'm now using an avocado...
