  1. This is a completely untrue rumour that has been circulating for years, ever since they lost power for a couple of days and everyone claimed they had refrozen everything to sell. Now, I don't know exactly how they handled that, but they do NOT shut down the freezers every night. I am not buds with Pancho, and I have no reason to protect him or the current owners of the place, but let's have some proof before making ludicrous statements like that.

  2. Then you are a "spreader". Yes, a new derogotary word. Mexican families, relatives and medical workers will remember you and pee on your grave as they bury their loved ones and colleagues.

  4. If you don't understand the difference between going out to shop with mask and gloves and social distancing, then sterilizing when you get home, and having a hairdresser or massage therapist come into your home, it seems you don't understand high risk situations for transmission of the virus at all, or you simply don't care.

  6. No, as I have remarked before, you are a reckless old fool whose road has been littered by bad choices. Go ahead, carry on as you say, but in this case you are endangering innocent people who as you say, are desperate for money. You will be judged.

  7. I have donated to many causes lakeside, and also sir, I am paying my help to stay home. I am immunocompromised. If you have a disability that requires a massage then that may be essential. A haircut is most certainly not. I am not the one making the request to Stay At Home the government of Mexico is. I have family in the states who also have no work, and many are going bankrupt there too. We are under these conditions for the good of all....this is an Emergency Health Crisis, let alone an economic crisis, but no one will need money if they die. I know nothing of you e

  10. How Ford treated his employees has nothing to do with the concept that big corporations are ruining small businesses. I could have used an example of the first guy to carve a wheel out of stone pissing off all the human people carriers... let's see you dig up some dirt on their employers. The point being when you rail on against WalMart, you need to rail against every huge corporation, from airlines to Federal governments, for ruining the existing businesses that got shut down. You need to rail against the work-houses in newly-industrialized England. It's a joke to think anything can be d

  14. No. Your hearsay is not evidence. And heed daisy's advice: which staffmember do you think goes in early enough to turn on the freezers, which are probably going to take minimum 3 to 4 hours before the food is refrozen, and I would guess substantially longer because that amount of stuff will not freeze in the same time that four pizzas freeze in your own little freezer. This would also add uncountable kWh to their CFE bill. And the lights are off to save power anyway.

  15. First thing in the morning, right after opening, go check the status of the freezers. You will find ice beginning to set on the water that has accumulated on the frozen stuff overnight. The freezer doors will be full of moisture running down. Less dense stuff will be soft and more dense stuff will be a little squishy. If that's not evidence of the freezers being turned off overnight, I don't know what will convince you.

  16. Hi everyone this is Miguel, former owner of Benno´s, I may also not have many post in webboard but it doesnt mean I am not real, here is post from me from 2015 8 years ago I bought Benno's from Benno and I ran it for 6 years. Then it was just a small repair shop in the carretera next to Bruno's. Me together with Justin, Xander and Jamie whom I hired later on, we changed Benno's into a new concept including Apple repairs and a computer store. Soon we moved to Libramiento where Benno's is located now. In June 2017 I was about to close Benno's as my son was born and it was impossible to be

"Specialists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico ( UNAM ) assured that the epidemic due to COVID-19 has spread throughout the country but the cases have not been properly registered, since they present as acute respiratory infection (ARI). In a statement, members of the institution’s Scientific Research Coordination (CIC) said that in recent weeks there has been a “continuous increase” in ARI cases . “This trend does not correspond to any seasonal pattern and in the context of the SARS-VOC-2 pandemic it must be assumed that it represents the extent of the infection in t

  25. Please consider going to mom & pop stores rather than Walmart. First, as has been shown here, you are entering a space where there are thousands of people who have little regard for health procedures. Do you think disinfecting of the carts, aisles, registers at Walmart is effectively done? You are endangering yourself and others. Besides that Walmart does not treat their employees well in regard to pay or benefits. Finally, Mom & Pop stores keep more of the profits here locally to help the local economy and local families. They've really been hurt by the pandemic and need our

I sometimes even become a scold. In order to alleviate these symptoms, please, I ask you people to listen up: Grow up. Please. You are all bickering like children. I am too old to be fond of children. Except for Mexican kids, they're about the cutest people I've ever seen. Please do not challenge me, my thinking process or my facts. No, do not. I know what you're thinking, but no. This is a s

  33. They aren't accurate anywhere. But it's all we have to go one right now. Multiply it by 4 or even 10, that's probably more accurate. There are plenty of people who are asymptomatic and those are most likely the ones who are the most responsible for spreading this around. People who are actually feeling quite sick aren't out and about. A lots of people who might have mild symptoms, but aren't feeling that sick, may never go to to a doctor or hospital, so they won't get counted.

  36. You could have just written "The Waltons are the richest family in America thanks to their ironclad control over the world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart" or I hart zillionaires. Anyone going to Walmart instead of mom and pop stores is sending money to the wealthiest family in the US instead of supporting local families and businesses. I don't see how anyone can disagree with that fact. If this makes you feel shame for how you spend your money, I don't apologize. I only ask that you listen to the shame and change your behavior. Please stop supporting multinational corporations who do n

They have no idea anyway Anyone who has lived in Mexico for any length of time knows when something appears on the supermarket shelf, buy as much as you think you may want for a couple of months. With Covid-19 there was plenty of warning to heed this especially, so woe to anyone who forgot lesson #1 in Mexico.,

  39. That's an interesting possible connection. I haven't seen anything on the comparative age of those diagnosed or dying from Covid-19. I tried to google it but didn't see anything onpoint. Admittedly, I wasn't sure how to phrase the search. Do you recall, or does someone else know, the numbers or source for that? (Quarantine Disclosure - this is a legitimate question, not a snarky or doubting response :)

  46. Alfaro is now saying that Jalisco's direct purchases of test kits will be allowed to clear customs and he has re-ordered them. When Jalisco begins our own testing we might begin to see some real numbers. Meanwhile the highway temperture checks continue. If you like Alfaro or not, he has taken far more precautions and much quicker than AMLO ever thought of..
