  1. This morning as I pulled into a parking space in front of my bank a man returned to his car parked alongside mine. The case of wine sitting on my passenger seat caught his eye. He leaned in and gave me a thumb’s up, one wine lover to another. In the bank the line was long and very slow moving. The woman in front of me noticed that I seemed to have trouble standing (my bad back). She told me to go sit down and when her turn came she’d let me go ahead of her. I gratefully took a seat. There’s not much to cheer us these troubled times, but a stranger’s good humor made me laugh and another’s kindness touched me. They made my day. Lexy

  2. Car drivers had no problem complying with seat belts when they started getting tickets and increased insurance premiums for not complying. Something similar should have been done with antivaxxers.

  5. Just received an email from Citibanamex that they are being divested from Citi. They are stating there will be no change in services offered. They have a history of 137 years and are a sound company. Basically that the headlines are not the story.

As the world’s leading nonpartisan news source, The Onion strives to give our readers the facts and let them decide what is true. Here’s a fact sheet answering common questions about curing your Covid-19 with urine therapy. Q: How much urine should I drink?

Q: Isn’t urine supposed to go into the toilet? A: No. Toilets were invented by greedy pharmaceutical executives to keep drug prices up. Q: Is this treatment approved by doctors? A: Most doctors agree that urine can exist safely inside the human body with little to no negative side effects. Q: What happens if I don’t drink my urine?

  14. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) asked this Thursday to "return Banamex to Mexico" after the American Citigroup announced that it will close its retail banking operations in the country, which includes the CitiBanamex brand. "Hopefully this will turn into something good, it is not bad, but we can turn it into something very good; without authoritarian measures, this bank is Mexicanized, which was owned by Mexicans; since the 19th century the National Bank of Mexico was born, it is one of the most ancient ", declared AMLO in a video from the National Palace. López Obrador stressed that "there is that possibility, that opportunity, that Mexican investors can stay with Banamex" , an operation that "would leave taxes" and "billions of pesos would enter the Public Treasury. The President "celebrated" that Mexican magnate Ricardo Salinas Pliego, owner of Banco Azteca, "has expressed his interest in buying it." And he considered that "the same could be thought" of Carlos Slim de Inbursa, Carlos Hank González de Banorte and José Javier Garza Calderón and a group of investors from the northern state of Nuevo León.

  15. I'm betting that as the world creeps closer to requiring a vaccination "passport" that more and more European countries will require something that Mexico does not seem able to provide. It is now Jalisco policy that you have to show (supposedly) proof of vaccinations to get into place like sporting events, concerts, theaters, shopping malls, etc. Also it seems that the only docs approved are those from the government website which have the QR codes and not the ones filled out by the vaccine administrators. For many folks locally there has been a problem getting those official documents from the website. We got ours for the first two shots of Pfizer in Tlajomulco but nothing yet from the booster of Astra Zeneca in Jocotepec. We have plans to see Europe later this year but if we can't provide an officially approved document we might not be able to go. I know the reason for this latest government move is twofold. Everybody is trying to avoid the disaster of lockdowns and at the same time further encourage everybody to get vaccinated to slow the spread and mutation of Covid in the general population. I predicted a year ago that the unvaccinated portion of the population could prolong the pandemic and cause the eventual demand for vaccination passports. Hold on to your hats folks...it's going to get ugly. Alan

  16. Actually a lot of the supposed anti-vaxers started lining up for vaccines when they found out they couldn't get into a dispensary or liquor store. Priorities, ya know.

  17. So if I have had over 8 different types of vaccines in my lifetime does that qualify me as an antivaxxer. (currently getting a quote to have my car fitted with multiple layers of seat belts...).

  18. Interesting situation in Canada. You can't buy pot or liquor from government run stores unless you have proof of vaccinations. Anti Vaxers will have to rely on bootleggers 🔹😂😂😂😂😂😂

  23. There are many interested in acquiring the Banamex company from Citi, Just as Citi bought it a few years ago. Banamex is used by many Mexican government entities. I would not worry.

  26. There’s another antivaxxer touting drinking your own urine to combat covid. That’s something MC could get excited about. Reminds me of when I used to work at the Edgewater Hospital (since abandoned) in Chicago in the early 70s. All the urinals in the restrooms would drain into buckets. This urine would be collected and used to manufacture urokinase, one of the first fibrinolytics developed. True story.

  28. I used to fill the gas tank (120 liters) every couple of months at about 800 pesos a fill. A few years back I bought a solar water heater with more capacity then we usually need (but just to be sure). That and the other plumbing parts cost about 10k pesos total. A friend of mine and I did the installation and since then, I fill the gas tank maybe once a year, if that. The solar heater has been the best thing that we've done to the house. I love it.

  31. Do yourself a favor and go to see Maria at the papelaria on Ramon Corona just a few doors west of the plaza in San Antonio next door to Marios resturant. Marias husband may be looking after the front but just ask for Maria and he will get her. She speaks English and she will make up all the papers you need and information. It costs a few pesos but well worth it. We had ours done 8 years ago it was 100.00 pesos but I think it would have increased a little by now.

  32. This thread is valuable and appreciated, and to mention, I am planning to add energy storage / backup to my home too, and have reviewed what Solar Technology has installed in the area. Very nice hybrid systems with automatic battery backup if CFE outage happens, and the owners are most pleased.

  38. If anyone can not figure out the location after these posts they probably should not be driving — or leaving their house. Come on, people! You want a map and a picture before venturing out to buy some donuts? This is not clear enough? “Libramiento 103-A across from the Laguna Centro Mall near Walmart.” “We are at 103-A on the libramiento. About 1 block from Walmart. We are before you reach the Oxxo and on the opposite side of the road.” “...it's just befrore the "dusty chicken" place.” As for Pappys comment about the Oxxo marker. Just how many Oxxo’s do you think there are on the libramiento?
