  1. Yeah, next time you are in for a surgical procedure, just explain to the doctors that you don't need them to wear masks since you understand it is no longer medically recommended and it might be uncomfortable for them anyway...Forget the gowns, gloves, and all that hand washing beforehand. It probably dries out their skin anyway and those gloves just get all messy and they make the hands sweaty. And those gowns on top of perfectly good clothes? Please, read an article on the internet if you want the real (Q) truth! Alan (being sarcastic)

  3. This is such a pathetic thread and the Covid deniers are out in full force. It's not a game and it's not a joke. If you feel so strongly that it is then GO EVERYWHERE AND GO MASKLESS. Just stay the hell away from me because I'm not into Russian Roulette.

  4. The criticism was not because he is a conservative, it was because he's nuts! The guy peddles all sort of nutty theories. He SELLS his vitamins online; he LIED about their effectiveness. He was warned by the FDA to cease and desist (by the former US administration) making false claims that his vitamins could cure Covid. Not everything is political, sometimes people are just bat-shit crazy.

  6. You said in your original post that the study was "peer reviewed". The study's author is a physical therapist, for f's sake. The publication lied about his credentials (or the author did). Why can't you just man-up and apologize for posting misleading information. The "study" was not peer reviewed and you make yourself look very small for defending this misinformation. Please research before you post. It would be a great help to this forum. Waiting for the counterattack. You're not known for any semblance of self-reflection.

  10. You are right. It is a mess and so very disgusting. Never, ever order one and certainly never eat it, not even a taste. If everyone had your eye and palate, food like this would not even exist. We’d have neat and tidy food instead. But the barbarians you are surrounded by eat that dish and actually enjoy it. Can you imagine? Oh, sorry. Obviously not.

  11. Maybe because when they first moved here someone told them the story and they found it to be an interesting, quirky, part of local lore. The fact that these are insects and not birds but are called birds is the quirkiest part of the story. They share it because it is part of this place, their experience of living here. What I don’t understand is why this silly, quirky, local story that amuses most people annoys you so much.

  12. Isn’t that how we approach life’s journey in general? Risk vs reward? i just find it ridiculous that some feel compelled to have others think like they do. We know the facts and can make our own decisions. We don’t need Mainecoons to keep coming up with all this crap.

  13. I had a very good experience (so far) having cataract surgery done by Dr. Juan Garrido at Puerta de Hierro Sur hospital. I was given a choice of practically any intraocular lens I decided upon. The cost varied accordingly. The cost of monofocal lenses which most people get was 35,000 pesos per eye. These are usually for average distance viewing and reading glasses are used for close up viewing. After some research I decided on Zeiss (Lisa) multifocal (trifocal) lenses. The cost for everything excluding my initial examination (900p) and analytic measurements (1200p), was 42,000 pesos per eye, a

  15. It is not trash. 50% IS better than nothing by a long shot. It's not like I was offered a choice of vaccine types. For now, I am happy to have been offered something. And keep in mind this was not an established fact when the shots were being given out lakeside. And keep in mind EVERYONE who got a shot here got the Sinovac. 1,000s of people, expats and Mexicans. And happy to get it. And I'll be going back for my second, which all reports say goes WAY up in terms of efficacy. As far as I'm concerned, anyone refusing to take a shot when offered is adding to the problem.

  16. I think the OP is rather freaked out about now reading "water for several hours for X number of days a week". They may not understand the water storage systems in Mexico that nearly every house has. So here's a sort of a primer... Water comes from wells that are controlled by the local water government authority. They pump from the wells to your house. You may have a meter or they may have guesstimated your usage based on number of bathrooms/ pool etc. in some parts of town. You pay them and, imho, it's not much. Most people pay for the year in January. After the meter, it's your res

  18. There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked. “Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors gro

  20. Chapala EXPAT Liaison Published by Harry Bublin · 3m · Last week the regional director of the state board of health told Seminario newspaper that the local second rounds would not allow for first rounds. When he was interviewed by the Guadalajara Reporter he reversed himself and said fir shots would be allowed during the second. What is the truth ? Who knows. The only thing we know is the servidores of the nation are in charge and they haven't told us anything.

  21. Not to belabor the point, but: (Mainecoons) "If I quoted sources you all like they would all be of one persuasion and we both know that. Rather I go to professional sources like the last one that are heavily documented and present you the opportunity to go directly to the source material and read it independently. I do that often to make sure the reference document is quoting the sources accurately" ...but this was your first reference: "UTownhall is owned by Salem Media Group, which owns numerous right-leaning Christian-based radio stations across the USA.

  23. I am neither fearful nor obsessed, so you can stuff your condescension. You love to say things like that because it allows you to dismiss what those who don't see things like you do have to say. I live my life now pretty much exactly as you said you do. I'm not cowering in my house, afraid to go out.I'm certainly not wearing a mask in my car, I wear it when it makes sense to. It seems to be you who is obsessed, as you keep starting topic posts to try to prove what a nothing burger COVID is.

  27. Try and keep up Andy. Some people just don't feel the need to explain themselves more than once. Considering that you posted in the thread in which her comment was made, the onus is on you for not remembering the content. I prefer to make my decisions in life based on my own opinions and research. However, everyone else is also entitled to do the same. Stop badgering other people's opinions. It makes you look pathetic.

  28. Just as the TSA is pretty much "security theater", the feeble attempts to control crowds at outdoor events is little but "health theater" designed for the image politicians want to project. Most don't really know what to do (understandably) and so they end up just doing something. They do not want to get caught doing nothing and then see infection numbers climb. I honestly have no idea what I'd do if I was in charge so I'm glad I'm not. I will just continue to encourage individuals to be as careful as they think is reasonable for their own health and the health of others. Wear a mask, wash

  31. Pete's post on the upper Ajijic power outage reminded me, tangentially, to remind all those with solar panels (and solar tubes for water heating, though less critical by far) to check them and clean them. This time of year being the driest and dustiest, plus the smoke, can really dirty up those panels and they can quickly lose 1/3 or more of their potential. Think of a really dirty window and trying to see through it. At any rate, in the coolest part of the day, (early AM is ideal), rinse with clean water, and if needed, it is OK to use a very soft brush and very mild diluted

The study that MC posted last week about facemasks shows that the author, Baruch Vainshelboim " is listed as part of the cardiology division at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System at Stanford University." "But he has no affiliation with Stanford, according to the university. Stanford School of Medicine spokeswoman Julie Greicius said in a prepared statement that Stanford supports the use of face masks to control the spread of COVID-19."

Watch while I prove it to you.” The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other. He calls the boy over and asks, “Which one do you want son?” The boy takes the quarters and leaves the dollar. “What did I tell you,” said the barber. “That kid never learns.” Later, the customer leaves and sees the same boy coming out of the ice cream store and says, “Hey son, may I ask you a question?” “Why did you take the quarters instead

  37. Covid is not confined to borders. Getting as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible worldwide is the smartest thing to do. In many places in the USA vaccine is not being used and doses are left over daily at mass vaccination sites because of no shows. If those administering the vaccine have no problem with residency, age, etc. then why would anyone think it is wrong to receive the vaccination. My nieces, nephews, son & daughter in law (all Mexicans) all received their vacs in the USA. None of them were over 60 at the time. The different locations in Texas gave them the shot,
