  1. Past hour
  2. If you are in a delivery truck headed west bound you will have a problem seeing those dividers. If for some reason you get pushed into them by ongoing traffic you are going to climb them. The old New Jersey style barriers would just cause you to straighten out. These will wreck you. It has already happened and it will continue to do so.
  3. Today
  4. Bisbee Gal...we too had lantana in Scottsdale and loved it! It would have been lovely too but I was hoping for some shade when sitting in the ever growing load of traffic.
  5. I think you'll find that those sort of statistics, i.e. how many coronavirus deaths there are in the US compared to other causes of death, may be applicable to other countries as well. Countries that are constantly in the midst of civil wars might show a high number of deaths from that cause, where the US wouldn't, and certainly homicide rates can vary substantially by country, but things like heart disease and other common illnesses might be comparable percentage-wise. I'll have to do some research on that.
  6. What is wrong with personal stuff? Does it offend you?
  7. Interesting information, but what would really be of benefit here at Lakeside, Alan, would be that above type information as it is happening daily in Mexico, as many here have no interest in the US, but ALL here have interest in Mexico. See what you can do to provide ALL of us that type of pertenient information, ok? Thanks a bunch.
  8. Well, for a contrary (to that!) opinion, I hope that Alan spends all his waking days here with us 'forever'.... and maybe someone else depart. But that's just me I suppose.
  9. While I'd like to see them able to make money, I hope it doesn't become a booming business due to a leap in infections. I'm sure they could be selling them online somewhere or to Mexican hosptials if someone helped them organize that. A woman who was making them here for private sale isn't anymore, because she is busy filling orders for medical personnel.
  10. Many expats here think the world revolves around them.. Everyone has a personal choice to make, take precautions or not. If you felt so strongly about this issue why didn’t you take it to the Presidente of Chapala in person instead of ranting on a web board that very few local Mexicans read....
  11. Also checked when they opened after seeing some other "rumours" here that they accept VA Healthcare in emergencies...NOT SO...unless things have changed.
  12. Could be M., but since it is there, I´m going to enjoy it. But keep on tryin´, I might go negative, who knows? LOLOLOL. I don´t have as much time left as you do, to worry about it. I´m in my 80´s driving. and all I can say is anyone who can´t see those dividers….shouldn´t be driving…..and that is not an LOL!
  13. I would prefer that you go away....Most of us here are educated and can do our own research and make our own conclusions. This chart has nuthin' to do with Lakeside. Thank you.
  14. Since I don´t have any emojis left all I can do is repeat your post and say that I´m double your DISGUST. UNBELIEVABLE!!!
  15. Event: Limited Passport Operations (April 9, 2020) The U.S. Mission in Mexico suspended routine passport and other consular services March 19 in light of COVID-19. If your passport is expired or is going to expire soon and you have imminent travel plans to the United States, please contact the embassy or nearest consulate to apply for an emergency passport ONLY. To schedule an appointment, please call 55-8526-2561 or visit our website. Due to reduced operations at U.S. domestic facilities effective April 2, if you have previously applied for a passport or citizenship service, such as a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA), you should expect significant delays receiving your documents. If you are in this situation and have imminent travel planned, please contact us for an emergency passport. As a reminder, U.S. citizen children do not require a CRBA to qualify for an emergency passport. Please enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) and visit the Embassy's COVID-19 webpage for up-to-date information on COVID-19 and the status of U.S. consular operations in Mexico.
  16. No they don´t Pete, you should know that, we have the same Dr.
  17. https://www.healthleadersmedia.com/covid-19/coronavirus-becomes-number-one-cause-death-day-us-surpassing-heart-disease-and-cancer "COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, is now the deadliest disease in the United States, killing more people per day than cancer or heart disease. According to a graph published Tuesday by Dr. Maria Danilychev, who practices in San Diego, COVID-19 is the cause of 1,970 deaths in the U.S. per day. Just last week, COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death, averaging around 748 deaths per day, but as the virus has continued to spread, the increase in daily deaths have followed." It is easy to fact check the chart's numbers. What is the harm in posting interesting and informative information about what concerns us the most right now. I personally won't ignore it until it goes away. Why should I? SThttps://www.google.com/search?q=us+daily+cause+of+death+from+covid-19+death&oq=us+daily+cause+of+death+from+covid-19+death&aqs=chrome..69i57.53350j0j4&client=ms-android-americamovil-mx&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8 "COVID-19, which is caused by the coronavirus that is spreading across the globe, is now the deadliest disease in the U.S., causing more deaths per day than cancer or heart disease. A new graph published Tuesday by Maria Danilychev, a physician, showed COVID-19 is the cause of 1,970 deaths in the U.S. per day,according to Newsweek. It was only last week when Danilychev published a report showing COVID-19 as the third leading cause of death, taking the place of accidents, with fatalities averaging at around 748 per day." https://www.evaluate.com/covid-19-daily-update "US – The US repeated its pattern of almost flat new infections, but higher deaths. The one-day death rate again hit a new high, as almost 2,000 people lost their lives to Covid-19 and one-day infection rates nudged up to 33,323. Calls to end some of the country’s lockdown measures are likely to grow following another sharp rise in unemployment. Analysts at Morgan Stanley have modelled a potential return to work for some citizens by the end of June if the US reaches peak new infections by late April/early May."
  18. I am going stop drinking Guinness! NOT!!!
  19. Most of the "facts" posted here are uninformed opinions. Lets just say the majority of people on this board, including myself, know nuthin' about this. Lets just relax and ride it out in one of the best environments regarding this situation...what else can we do? I would appreciate though, that those inclined to post rumours and innuendos here crawl back into the woodwork. Gracias
  20. In Colonos de Brisas de Chapala, we have had intermittent phone service since Monday. Starting this afternoon, internet on and off. We reported it to 800 123 2222 and were told they would fix this afternoon or in the morning. Not holding my breath!
  21. mudgirl, my comments were less directed to you personally but rather whether it is OK for anyone to put unsubstantiated stuff out without doing some due-diligence on it themselves first. Especially these days . That's probably just my personal take on responsibility. Everyone has to determine their own I guess. So far, with even more research, I cannot verify nor debunk the data. Can't even find out anything about the presenter although 'he', Alex Someoneoranother, might have a Facebook account and might could be contacted that way. I'm not a FB'er and I'm not going to join to check this out further. Carpe diem
  22. Yes, a sad time for what is usually a happy time. I will help my Mexican family.
  23. Rick- I said it was an interesting graph- I thought the visual was unique, I didn't say I had checked any of the validity or that it was fact- I should think it easy enough to check for yourself if the daily death rate from each of those causes is correct or not.
  24. Yesterday
  25. Well, who has verified that this 'visualization' is on the up and up. Maybe an extremist for what ever reason wanting us to believe what is portrayed I did some 'investigation' and here is what I found: The UK company that developed the 'presentation software', Flourish, seems to be OK. BUT, can 'anyone' use their software without the data being fed into it verified by them or any other reputable third party. Who knows. I didn't fine that it was/has passed any test of validity. So my opinion is that when we see something like this, maybe BEFORE posting it as fact the source should be at least given a cursory examination. And BEFORE we all just gobble up Posted stuff as fact and maybe praise it's message, we should do our due diligence on it also even if the message happens to support our on position on the subject. End of rant.....
