  1. Hola! To the original question from the OP: Do you feel house prices will come down or like in some area's of the US and Canada go though the roof? It is a complicated answer. First of all, I am the broker of a local real estate agency. In 2020, sales of residential properties, area wide, were down year over year compared to 2019 a total of 29%. However, prices have remained steady and in some cases rising. The average sales price in 2020 was $264,000 USD, about the same as 2019. Inventory was up around 10%. Clearly fewer potential buyers from the US and Canada flew down to look at houses f

  2. And some people have far too much time on their hands that they make themselves guardians of us all. You must have a sad life if you have to find fault in others without looking in your own mirror. Since I actually have a life, I try not to make myself the neighborhood nazi. SMH.

  5. I don't know what you think lockdowns "working" means. It doesn't mean that it will put an end to the virus transmission, it is intended to slow it down. And in places where the populace complies, they succeed in seriously knocking down the infection and consequently death rate. It isn't that lockdowns don't work, it's that they don't work if entitled people ignore them.

  6. No, everything isn't negotiable and it's quite disrespectful to try to chisel someone down on what they charge for their work and expertise. It's one thing to barter with some middleman selling commercially made silver jewelry at inflated prices because tourists don't know any better, quite another not to respect what someone charges for their personal hard work and experience. If you can't afford someone's services, no one is forcing anyone else to employ them.

  7. I tried to reply to the pertinent thread but once I wrote out my post, I could not access the "submit" button. Am I banned or what? So I am trying again. Replying to Mainecoons about the frozen windmills: This is no time to be even subtly bashing Clean Energy. The reason that the windmills froze over in Texas is that they were not winterized as they are in normally cold climates. With global warming changes, people have to become more adaptable to recurrent extreme and unprecedented weather conditions which are not going to go away before they wreak havoc. https://www.texastrib

  9. Hi I had covid in march 2020 here. There weren't many cases in the US then. I ended up with double pneumonia, was put on antibiotics, prednisone and oxygen. I really had a hard time breathing. Never thought it was covid. After the pneumonia was over i still had breathing problems so my PC suggested i stay on the oxygen when my level went below 90. I had an oximeter. At that time i was getting high blood pressure spikes, which i still get about 3 times a week. Got off the oxygen in April and booked a flight which was canceled because of covid. A few weeks later i had breathing problems ag

  10. It may never be specifically NEGATED because, by its very date, it was true at the time. I can go back years in the Medical Journals and old articles of what worked at the time are still there. It doesn't mean than new and improved methods and ideologies have not been published since. Medical knowledge is a process that builds on what was before.

  14. That has nothing at all to do with restricting your constitutional rights. I've had four Mexican lawyers now tell me this was blatantly discriminatory and a clear violation of the Mexican constitution. Spencer has told you the same thing. Voluntary discounts by businesses for seniors is totally irrelevant. For the most part it is a marketing tool or just simple kindness on the part of business owners. It has nothing at all to do with restricting the basic right of anyone to be able to move around and get the food and medicine they need. It was nonsense as far as the science goes as w

  15. Do you really think it is discriminatory Seniors get discounts at the movie, shouldn’t everyone else, Simapa gives discount to seniors also 50 %, discount on getting drivers licenses These are some of the discounts that I can think of now. We cannot complain only when it applies to us. It was meant to keep us safe and to live. It had good intentions.

  20. You sure managed to twist what I wrote. I DON'T stress over it, I just avoid those businesses who don't practice proper precautions. It's really a very simple philosophy and I have no interest in making others behave themselves. I can express observations and make choices based on those observations, can't I? I've lived full time in Mexico for 24 years now. I sure as hell don't need your "go back to where you came from" attitude.

  29. I do not think poorly of Mexicans. I have said nothing negative about Mexicans And I certainly understand them far better than you do. What I said is you live in a gringo world. You are not aware of what the average Mexican thinks or understands about the pandemia. Saying they need to be educated on how they as individuals can do something is logical. You say most of us have cellphones thus everyone knows about the pandemia . Well most of the younger people are busy reading face, and twitter, and sending whatsapp messages... not reading news stories like gringos do. Ask 100 Mexic

  31. We kept hearing about the wonderful breakfasts at Nissa's "Bakery" and so when we found ourselves nearby and hungry, we decided to give it a try. True, they shred the potatoes for the hash browns, but what we were served was a tiny portion of soggy barely cooked potatoes. We knew they word bakery appears in their name and were disappointed that toast was not an option. The very kind owner did bring us a few pieces of sliced baguette while we waited, but that was it. My partner's scrambled eggs were okay, but my eggs benedict were a nightmare. I have no idea what sort of sauce they smother

  33. Or maybe someone will buy them and turn them into apartments... live in one and rent the rest. The Mexican real estate market is very interesting. Since you pay cash for a home, if you want to sell it you can play a very long waiting game if it's not an emergency (aka fire sale). No mortgage, no major utilities and very little paid in taxes... in other words, no big hurry at all.

  34. As promised, here is the Costco report, a/k/a "Can I enter if I'm over 60?" For obvious reasons, I'll keep a few personal details to myself, but my friend and I went to Costco today. We were about 5-7 minutes prior to their opening and there was already a line of about 20 people ahead of us. Every blasted second, a recording announced, in both Spanish and English, that entrance was restricted for those under 15 and those over 60. While I think the staff looked folks over, they didn't do any ID checks or anything other than taking your temp and splooshing you with wonder gel. I can honestl

  35. According to the Mexican census the population of Chapala municipio is 55,000 +. 41 deaths in a year, from reports almost all with contributing factors of age, obesity, diabetes, heart problems, amounts to 0.075 percent over a year. I wonder what the body count is from the poverty and depression caused by endless lockdowns? Asking for a friend.

  36. Many Canadian friends who've arrived over the past few months have simply, on their own, without any enforcement, self-quarantined. (Some for up to 14 days.) Not sure that we actually know of any who have not. We do know of others from the U.S. (fleeing Covid infested states) who have not evidenced the same level of concern. Further, there are establishments here in the Lakeside communities (bars and restaurants) that are not even close to conforming with the current restrictions. If Jalisco officials are really concerned about the rapidly increasing Covid cases and deaths, why are they no

  37. I have a doctor friend at the civil hospital in Guadalajara. He is scared and worried and many of his coworkers are. There are no good stats published although I have many doctor clients and it is scary what they say. Many, many people report on social media that they have had to go to 3,4 or 5 hospitals to find beds. I didnt mean to say there are zero beds but if you need a bed, how will you find one? Lakeside has more than Guadalajara but things are growing exponentially so beds may not last long. Also I thought once infected never again but there are more and more confirmed reports of
