    Using a shipper (ie, BM Cargo) as your permanent address in the USA

    I don't own or rent a home in the USA. Right now, I'm using my sister's address for a mailing address. Would there be a problem if I just changed my permanent address to the BM Cargo address? I'm not sure if it's legal. Thanks Pedro (my new name)

    Dominican equivalent of Craig's List

    Hi. I used to have a link for the Dominican equivalent of Craig's List on my other laptop that just died. Does anyone know what it is? It seemed good for looking for second hand stuff. Thanks Rob

    lo que vs. que

    I'm not sure if I understand the difference. Tengo hambre pero no sé lo que quiero comer. This is a Fluencia sentence that I got wrong because I did not put the "lo" before the que. Why is it needed? Thanks. Rob

    Trade Schools

    Hot Dogs

    What is the best way to say hot dogs in Dominican Spanish? Google Translate says "pancho" but I don't thing I've heard that before. We buy Emilios at Ole and they say hot dog, which isn't much help. Thanks!

    Suggestion, a thread about when to use a with the infinitive

    Right now, I'm confused about it. I get it right about 1/2 the time, but it's only because I'm guessing. There as to be grammatical rules about when and when not to use a with the infinitive. I just don't know what they are. An example, but without the infinitive (courtesy Fluencia)...

    It seems permanent to me

    So I'm doing a Fluencia quiz and they ask me to translate "The flowers in the garden are dead." I write " Las flores en el jardin son muertas." They say it should be estan and not son, because "It looks like you mixed up son, a form of the verb ser, with están, a form of the verb estar...

    Pixel 4 with Google Fi

    Hi, next question: Anyone have any experience with the Pixel 4 and Google Fi here? It appears to be a good deal and I'm wondering if it's too good to be true. Thanks, and don't forget my question a few days ago about the Aqua Park in Punta Cana!!! :laugh:

    Aqua Park

    Any opinions on the Punta Cana Aqua Park. It seems pricey at $85/person. Does anyone have experience with it and would it be a decent day trip? Thanks for any and all advice in advance. Rob

    Hello from San Pedro!

    Been living here since October. Finally decided to register after lurking for a few months. I live close to Jumbo in what I consider a very nice part of town. So far, I love it here. I retired in September of 2018 and don't regret anything (yet!). Roberto
