  2. having liability insurance only protects you for the limits of the policy. If you are sued for more, you are still liable for the difference
  3. PLEASE SCRAP MY OLD ADD no longer able to drive must sell my three wheels using them for 14 years in Costa Rica absolutely the finest low price reliable mode of transportation in the world - have used them couple hundred of times going from Miramar to san Jose Route 27, etc.- built for the highway and rock stable on the highway - don't wet in the rain - call for inmformation 2244 7324 ask for paul - sell all three of them including all spare parts and all my tools $5500
  4. in Costa Rica, a married couple own property separately. at the termination of a marriage (and the death of one of the spouses is a termination of a marriage), all propery owned by the parties to the marriage becomes "community property". if the spouse that died did not leave a will, at that point all community property goes to probate. In Costa Rica this is a very expensive and long process (years)......
  5. With the ICE unión threatening Costa Rica free press, I would say that the liklihood of the goverment of Costa Rica finding any foreign inverstors with the will to buy the bonds that this government badly needs just to run the government has plummeted to unknown depths - Remember, the procedes from the bonds they plan to sell WON'T be used to pay of the owed principal on earlier bond sales! - It's over - The country of Costa Rica, at this point has a very low order of probability of surviving!
  6. On Saturday June 27 on Encuentra, 12065 used cars were posted for sale, this morning, 30 june at 0320 Encuentra shows 12352 cars posted for sale on their site - can anyone explain to me why this number of posted ads is increasing at such an alarming velocity?a
  7. between Saturday, June 27, and sunday June 28, the number of cars listed for sale on Encuentra jumped from 12056 to 12087 - 22 more cars listed for sale in 1 day?? I think you guys may now get the be able to draw hte proper conclusions!!
  8. I just remembered something - I lived in Sydney Nebraska for 10 years - a company based in Sydney made boxing rings and other sports equipment - in a discussion one day with the owners son, I remember him saying that he always new when a big war was starting somewhere in the world, because the demand for their aluminum smelters (that they manufactured) would increase substantially when a big war was on the horizon - I still believe that the lousy used car market in Costa Rica portends serious financial problems in the next couple of years! When I'm analyzing something, I like to keep it simple - you'll never go wrong with this approach!! I have also found in this life, it is of paramount importance to keep your finger on the pulse of things around you - you can plan for the disasters and "play the angles" (which I've done my whole life), to avoid coming out on the bottom!!!
  9. I read La Nación every day - and I can assure you that Costa Rica is dying! They are on their way to the financial collapse that Greece is facing today - when the common people can't sell or buy cars, can't afford the gas for the cars, a real problema exists - by the way, my land ladies sister is desperate to sell her Fiat, and can't find a buyer!! if you want toc contact these people with first hand experience, I may be able to arrange a face to face meeting with them for you!!!!!!!!
  10. out of curiosity, not because I want to purchase a used car, I have been perusing the used car ads in Costa Rica. Costa Rica Encuentra has used car ads, and annotates the number of ads they are currently running. In the last month, the number of ads that Encuentra has been running has increased by more than 2000 ads. They currentlhy show over 11,000 used car ads listed!! How many of these are already sold and not removed from the list is a mute point due to the staggering number of ads for used cars!! If this isn't an indication of the imminent collapse of the Costa Rican financial system, I don't know any other way to quantify it. Additionally, my landladies nephew had a tow truck and had tried selling cars to make extra money (he is a teacher), but had to give up his sidelines because no business exists for those endeavors!
  11. any one know if I'm going to have a problem sending US dollars to India thru Western Unión?
  12. these things are extremely dangerous on the road - they are top heavy and NOT built for the Street - you're playing with fire!!!
  13. I have read La Nación daily for the last 12 years - I can assure you that I know how to read, and am not of the "the sky is falling" mindset!!
  14. Costa Rica is now unable to finance its annual budget déficits because Moodys and J P Morgan have told the world that if they buy the bonds that Costa Rica must sell to finance its déficits, that they'll probably never be repaid, or receive pennies on the dollar if Costa Rica devalúes it's Colone to try and save its economy!!! This is a reality tha must be changed. I can't do it!! Only the government can do it! The easiest step would be for the governement to tell that world that they want investments and retirees here! One of the easiest step would be as I suggested! Talking is not enough. Action is needed!! All of us are in the same boat - if this place collapses (which is likely at this point) all your past happiness living here goes down the tubes when hyper inflation hits! I do not want this to happeen!!
