Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico

¡Bienvenidos a Mexico!

Well, that was an eventful day and a half. Wait, I was talking about our move to Puerto Vallarta; what were you thinking of? Unfortunately, the seditionist and insurrectionist acts of pro-Trump right-wing terrorists is not a laughing matter of course, but if you can’t laugh you gotta cry and I intend to do neither,Continue reading “¡Bienvenidos a Mexico!”

Feliz Navidad!

In the regular phone calls with my mother during this pandemic I remind her that the cliche “no news is good news” has never been more true. With that in mind, this update is largely in the same vein. We’ve been staying at Tanya’s mother’s house since Dec. 13 and have literally not left theContinue reading “Feliz Navidad!”

Our plans are finalized!

With the closing on the house now two weeks out and hopefully nothing standing in its way, we spent some time yesterday booking all of our travel arrangements and lodging in Puerto Vallarta for January and February. “Finalized” in the headline is doing a lot of work in the age of COVID, where nothing isContinue reading “Our plans are finalized!”

Why societies fail

Came across this fascinating article in The Atlantic about a UConn professor who has a model that can predict the decline and ascendance of a society.

I regret to remind you that the United States is absolutely fucked

Yay, Joe Biden won. But the rot that exists inside the United States, mostly with brain-dead right-wingers who are spoon-fed fascist propaganda 24 hours a day by a network owned by a nihilistic, elderly Australian billionaire, is not going anywhere any time soon I assure you. The President has gotten his fake DOJ investigation andContinue reading “I regret to remind you that the United States is absolutely fucked”

Quick update/VOTE!

Yes, things have been quiet around here. With the latest surge in COVID-19 cases we’ve been holed up at home and trying to organize where we can for our move, but much like the rest of the world, we’re just waiting to see what happens with the election this week.  For our part, we votedContinue reading “Quick update/VOTE!”

Sold!

After a whirlwind weekend that saw our home booked for somewhere around 20 showings, we received four offers and just signed the paperwork on a purchase agreement to sell the house for considerably over the asking price. (If everything proceeds as scheduled, it’ll be a matter of public record, but for now don’t want toContinue reading “Sold!”

Goodbye, good boy

We had to say goodbye today to our beloved Houston dog. His joint and hip problems kept getting worse and worse and he wasn’t going to be able to handle either being dragged in and out of the house for showings or even to a doggie daycare. The truth is we probably let ourselves beContinue reading “Goodbye, good boy”
