  1. If you want to be able to chat in english,you might consider someone in the Philippines.
  2. I used sportsbook when I lived there but that was 4 years ago.
  3. Walmart is 11 miles from home and Costco is 21,so I time my 90 day drug purchase with my monthly Costco shopping spree.Plus its 2 miles from the Guzzi dealer,so its win-win.And of course you can refill prescription over the automated order ine,so no wait whe you arrive.And you don't need to be a Costco member I was told but you will pay just a bit more though. Well the price mentioned above at Costco is somewhat cheaper than the Thailand price (amlodipine), but if you can be clobbered by a price 6x higher by going to the shop next door, Walmart, which is being cited as the cheap place to go, you sure have to know where to go.
  4. I lived in Mexico for 3 years,as recently as 2 years ago this month.Prices have increased there and now a prescription is required for very many drugs that never required one previously.You can still find off the beaten path ones that will sell to you w/o a prescription but you will pay even more.
  5. When in lived in Jomtien in '08-'09,I had to buy my 10mg amlodipine for hypertension and the price was several times higher than what I currently pay here at Costco.I was shocked.
  6. Costco has the best prices for many prescription drugs.Costco charges under $6 for a 90 day supply of 10mg amlodipine.I asked the Walmart pharmacist what their price was-nearly 6x! I asked if they would price match like some pharmacies-no way was the reply.As the OP stated,many states,including Florida,offer a large amount of generics for $4 for a 30 day supply.
  7. Gary,at Costco,I pay $5.75 for a 90 day supply of 10 mg amlodipine.A price that can't be matched anywhere.
  8. Yes.Only difference is ours is dispensed in a container whereas in Thailand,they are sold in blister packs.
  9. Start with 10mg of Amoldipine which is generic for Norvasc.I have been taking it for nearly a decade.It works.And BTW,I am in great physical shape.Gary is right-its the silent killer. A little back story.About 18 months before I retired in 2005,I was scheduled for rotator cuff surgery.I was in great shape.In the hospital at 7am.BP taken-210/108! Are you kidding me! Wait 5 mins-its higher! Usually stress raises BP but this is literally off the charts.They thought I was having a heart attack right there and began asking me the questions they ask heart attack victims.I felt fine.So no surgery that day.Went to doctor and had a stress test administered and my BP was indeed high.It took 3 weeks to get it to normal and had the surgery.You never know.I as thin,ran 6 days a week and ate healthy.You never know.DO NOT WAIT to take action b/c like Gary said,its the silent killer. Amlodipine is cheap insurance.
  10. I lived in Mexico 3 years and Thailand 15 months after retirement and have visited Phils several times and have to say I prefer Pinays.
  11. Yes apparently we stole all your jokes.
  12. Funny When Barack Obama met with Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of England , he asked her… "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give me?" "Well," said the Queen, "The most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people." Obama frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know if the people around me are really intelligent?" The Queen took a sip of champagne. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle, watch" The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?" Tony Blair walked into the room and said, "Yes, your Majesty?" The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please Tony. Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?" Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered… "That would be me." "Yes! Very good." said the Queen. Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden the same question. "Joe, answer this for me." "Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?" "I'm not sure," said Biden. "Let me get back to you on that one." He went to his advisors and asked everyone, but none could give him an answer. Frustrated, Biden went to work in congressional gym and saw Paul Ryan there. Biden went up to him and asked, "Hey Paul, see if you can answer this question." "Shoot Joe." “Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?" Paul Ryan answered, "That's easy, it's me!" Biden smiled, and said, "Good answer Paul!" Biden then, went back to speak with President Obama. "Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle." "It's Paul Ryan!" Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face, "No! You idiot! It's Tony Blair!" ...AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS PRECISELY WHAT'S GOING ON AT THE WHITE HOUSE
  13. No,it was mine.Guess MM isn't as fond of me as I thought. Hey MM,are there any American moderators beside yourself?
  14. Too funny While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president. The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a "Post Turtle''. Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was. The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'. The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with."
  15. Too funny-shared it with my mexican friends: José and Carlos are beggars. They beg in different areas of town. Carlos begs for the same amount of time as José, but collects only about $8.00 or $9.00 a day. José brings home a suitcase full of ten-dollar bills every day. He drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage-free house, and has a lot of money to spend. "Hey, amigo," Carlos says to José, "I work just as long and hard as you do, so how come you bring home a suitcase full of ten dollar bills every day? José says, "Look at your sign, what does it say?" Carlos reads his sign: "I have no work, a wife and six kids to support." "What's wrong with that?" Carlos asks him. "No wonder you only get $8.00 or $9.00 a day!" says José. Carlos says, "All right, what is on your sign?" José shows him:
