#1- Going “off the grid” in the age of ramping inflation and the inevitability of huge energy price increases:
Today we discuss the latest, greatest, simplest, easiest and most economical solar panel, battery and inverter setups. These are the systems I would choose for myself if I were installing a complete off grid system today. Going solar makes great sense right now, especially while the payback time (break even time) is so much shorter than it ever was. Not to mention there are fantastic DIY systems that can be assembled in just one day, by practically anyone with a toolbox and just average handyman skills.     
 
#2- The strange history of Irish people in Latin America
Who knew there were so many thousands of “Irish” Mexicans?
 
#3- The continuing story of Johnny and Expat File show haters*:
People are always curious about my online haters. Every media person worth his salt has a cadre of them. Yes, the lame tactics of cancel culture vultures are out there. They're mostly comprised of sensitive snowflakes (woke-flakes) and unexceptional losers who are all for free speech and the 1st amendment - unless it collides with their own views. Today we provide some examples of Johnny's online haters.
 
*Important caveat: some sympathy is in order for those boring online trolls and failures who have been dealt a bad hand in life.

#1- The Gringo Advantage and "dumb” luck: 

#2- Latin politicians relax the vax and mask mandates:

Funny thing, though they should have been ditched for scientific reasons a year ago, that’s not the case at all. They’re being scratched for the severe dent they have put in Latin tourism.  

#3- The problem with WhatsApp:

How it can bite you in the ass. 

#4- Latin Cupid dating sites exposed:

Gringos and Gringas beware! 

#5- When Expats get propositioned by Latinos and Latinas: 

#6- “Carbon Credits” Latin Style:

Confused by “Net Zero” carbon credits? Today we discuss how certain Latin American companies use synthetic govt mandated fantasy carbon credits as a license to print funny money. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is forced to ante up on the other end (and Uncle Sam gets his usual massive cut).

#1- Self-defense and situational awareness tips for Gringos and Expats and should carry while jogging and walking:
Gringos and Expats walk all over the place and today we discuss how to stay safe, secure and confident while out and about.  
 
#2- When Latinos get fed up with the system and take the law into their own hands:
The legal systems in both Latin America and the USA are twisted and corrupt. The difference being that in Latin America, when the local citizens get fed up with govt inaction, they’ll sometimes unite to punish a criminal in the town square…    

#3- What's up with gas prices in Latin America?

#4- The Latin American “Daylight Savings Time” conundrum:

#1- When Expats Fail:
Today an upscale Panama real estate agent (a Latino with a hundred plus gringo clients) gives his opinions and observations regarding 30+ gringos he personally knows who have started businesses. Most have succeeded but some have failed. Today we find out why.         
 
#2- The problem with gringos and expats who are ahead of the curve:
Are you a victim of the “you’re never a hero in your home town” syndrome? Join the crowd..   
 
#3- How gringos continuously scam health insurance companies (for fun and profit) and get away with it:
Just when you thought things in the states couldn’t get worse, today we have more sad (but stealthy) first hand examples as to why the US healthcare and financial system have nowhere to go but down. The question is, how come it hasn’t crashed and burned already?

#1- Going Naked- The case of Gringos without locally obtained Health Insurance:
Most gringos and expats who are over 65 can’t get private health insurance here in Latin America. At first it can be worrisome, but when they realize its a land of extraordinarily low medical costs many gringos accept it and don’t mind paying out of pocket.
Today we follow a 70 something gringo's “boots on the ground” journey for his doctor prescribed tests at a private hospital/clinic. He is one of those older guys who must pay out of pocket since he doesn’t qualify for an insurance plan.      
 
#2- Little known facts and tips for Gringos and Expats with or without “private “Latin American healthcare insurance:
Most people don’t realize that Latin American "private" hospitals, clinics and laboratories are rated by local insurance companies as either “A”,”B” or “C”. So what’s the difference? Are the “A” rated ones better than the B’s or C’s? Which ones should gringos and expats select? Today we have all the dope and you’ll find out…     

#3- The “luck of the Irish” in Latin America:

#1- What Latin Americans really think about the Gringos and Expats who live in their midst:
What friendly Latinos say to your face is not necessarily what they are saying to each other behind closed doors, behind your back and in private. Here’s the dirt….   
 
#2- When the gringo “tourist trail“ is not really the gringo tourist trail at all:
Most green gringos and newbee expats get it all wrong. There are actually three different tourist trails in Latin America and they shouldn’t be confused. Today we discuss why they are separate, distinct and have their own character.  Here's what you need to know...
 
#3- Gringos and their Beach Houses:
You might want to pay attention to this rant if you plan on owning or renting a Latin American beach house.

#3- Tips for gringos on how to buy Ivermectin in Latin America:

#5- More things not to like about the gringo tourist trail, when woke gringo idiots find each other and join forces:Now a word about woke gringos who continuously poop in paradise (with projectile diarrhea)
