  1. I am boycotting this forum until the moderators do their job and rein in the trolls, who have been allowed to make a mockery of the forum. It's starting to look like a newsletter put out by the inhabitants of an insane asylum.

  4. Get a Mexican attorney and ask him to handle it for you. Don't pester him/her as to exactly how it was taken care of or a breakdown of the fee. Say thank you and proceed with your project.

  5. It is quite obvious any semblance of moderation has gone right out the window. It was always pretty poor, but this has dragged the whole board to new lows.

  10. Many of those of us who live here full time have received the Sinovac jabs. Sinovac booster shot effective against delta variant, study says By Zachary Rosenthal, AccuWeather staff writer A study has shown that an additional dose of Sinovac Biotech’s COVID-19 vaccine boosts antibody activity against the delta variant, Reuters reported. Before this study's release, some countries which had heavily relied on the use of the Chinese-made Sinovac vaccine had been distributing booster shots made by Western nations. According to the study, those who receive a Sinovac booster shot show a level of protection against delta four weeks after their booster shot comparable to the level of protection seen four weeks after their second dose. Those who did not receive a booster demonstrated no antibody activity against delta after six months. The Sinovac vaccine has been shipped globally, with the World Health Organization planning to distribute nearly 100 million doses to Africa and Asia by the end of September. Some countries have turned down the vaccine, citing data on its lack of effectiveness against the delta variant.

  11. Costco. Expensive. You can sometimes purchase metal shelving with mdf (fibreboard) shelves at Walmart at much better prices.

  12. There is no hummingbird in this area with a yellow throat & chest. Most probably the yellow was pollen from a flower on his chest. I have seen that many times. The most common right now is the Violet Crowned which shows grey on back & wings, purple on the top of the head and a very white breast & neck. Possibly one of those same as in my picture dusted with pollen.

  13. Since we get the same gas lakeside, and have for years, if injector damage was a problem we would all be having the problem for a long time. There are no reports in the media of this happening. The Mexico News Daily story was more about the higher pollution caused by the higher level of aromatics and that Pemex is behind on lowering the level from 35% to 25% . Like many news outlets they published an incomplete story using the language "can cause engine problems" with no information of what kind of problems, to what engines and no statistical information of actual damage. The OP sensationalized the story by using "Adulterated Gasoline Damages Dozens of Guadalajara Cars" which is nowhere in the story presented in the link.

  20. Yes that is very true. In my experience the US carriers are very bad at cabin cleaning. My last three flights on Mexican carriers had well cleaned cabins. My last flight on A US carrier had trash in the seat back pocket and crumbs on the floor in my seat row. Doubt it was "sanitized" by a highly trained crew as their website stated.

  23. All is good and well... except for all those grounded planes of a particular brand that had problems which resulted in people dying in crashes. The MAIN point is that there is no official testing or vaccination certificate for Covid-19 required on flights within Mexico.

  24. Or you could just not read posts that are not of interest to you. Maybe you should chastise Mudgirl who actually changed the subject to getting on a plane is foolish based on her false assumption that Mexican planes are somehow different than the same models in the US. The plane maintenance subject came up because a poster inferred that they were safe on a US carrier, but Mexican carriers would not be as safe because they would not have the same filtration system a a US based carrier. Then someone else inferred that Mexican carriers might not maintain their plane to the same level as a Mexican carrier.

  25. Many of the Mexican carriers planes are US registered. Many are owned by US leasing companies. Servicing and inspections are done in both the US and Mexico. Each airplane has an airframe logbook, and a logbook for each engine. All inspections and work is noted in the corresponding logbook, and signed off by a certified mechanic, and inspector. Those logbooks are available for inspections by federal authorities, and surprise inspections do occur. Airliners are serviced based on strict requirements which are both time based and flight hours based. It is a violation to not do the required service on time which subjects the airline to hefty fines. It is illogical that a Mexican carrier is willfully violating regulations that can cost millions of dollars in fines to save a few dollars on checking systems, and replacing parts such as an air filter when required.

  26. Do you believe that the maintenance on those systems is the same in all countries?

  27. Actually Mexican planes would have the same air filtration systems as they come from the same manufacturers. Some of the Mexican airlines actually have newer fleets than other airlines IE; Delta, American, United. HEPA filtration has been on modern airliners for years, and the actual cabin air recirculation time is the same as it has been for years.

  29. Gosh Mudgirl, correct me if I am wrong but I could have sworn that just the other day you were educating Maincoons on how safe flying was due to the air filtration systems and fresh air flow.

  30. Raise your hand if you think getting on a plane with a bunch of people who are unvaccinated and untested and only had to fill out a form claiming they don't feel sick is a really foolish thing to do. Of course, I realize that some travel is essential, but I sure wouldn't risk it if it wasn't.

  32. I’m Mexican-American, bilingual, born in northern Mexico, raised in Texas and lived all over. My wife is from a small town in Michoacan and I have never felt like I belonged when I’m in her hometown. And I’m not the only one. I’ve met persons who have lived there many years from other Mexican states and even from nearby towns and they’re always reminded that they’re not from there. Small towns can be very provincial. They are very friendly, courteous, and of course very diplomatic in their manner of speaking but I know I will always be considered an outsider.
