  1. Does anyone know if you can buy an air fryer at costco or LP, or in the area? freelife13@shaw.ca

  3. This info is mainly for Hotmail and Yahoo users that are unable to receive the BPE in their inbox. (I hope!) Search “Whitelist for Hotmail?” or Yahoo or Gmail or……….follow the directions. Oh, the BPE email is: bpe@thebajaponyexpress.com this way your provider should always let the BPE email go through. This might solve some problems.

4. Beginning Oct 24 this year all calls in the US must include all ten digits. On that date, 988 will be reserved for the Suicide Prevention Hotline. Beginning soon this year and extending over the next year, the Cellular 3G network will begin to disappear in the US. Some older phones and services in cars that use the 3G network will no longer work. If your cell phone has a handcrank, it will no longer work.

This time of year there are many questions about cell service in Mexico and “will my cell phone work in Baja.” There are two major providers in Baja, TelCel and Telefonica, followed by ATT Mexico. All of these carriers have sharing contracts with the carriers in the US. Will your Verizon phone work in Baja, yes provided you have made arrangements before you leave the US.

As we get older, our hearing begins to lack the clarity that we once had. Even those folks who have good hearing may also benefit from a good soundbar. Over the past couple of years, the TV manufacturers have reduced the size of the bezel (plastic frame) around the TV. In order to do that, they have placed the speaker behind the TV. And, they don’t give us the best speakers possible. The content providers have begun to switch from the stereo format to forms of suround sound. They record the left and right channels as normal but they move the voices to the center channel. If you have the old stereo setup the voices will not be as clear. I highly recommend tht you purchase a 3.1, 5.1 or 7.1 system. The important number is the odd whole number. The .1 is the subwoofer. The 3.1 gives stereo with the center voice channel. The 5.1 adds the rear ambient sound and the 7.1 bounces sound off the ceiling so you can feel the helicopter hovering overhead. I have several sets of Vizio sound bars that are just great and economically priced.
