  1. I feel like the employees at the station I frequent could always use a tip even if it is just to pump the gas. I speak Spanish, have gotten to know them a little, and know that they mostly count on tips to earn a living. Almost all customers, including Mexicans, tip them. Does anybody reading this board think they could live, raise a family, or have a future with options working for what locals are able to earn? Most are lucky to earn the equivalent of 300 dollars per month. Would you do it? Could you do it? Would you appreciate a tip? They pay the same prices for things that we do (as

  3. Just a thought... If your "source" is so "reliable" , why don't you ask them your questions? Otherwise, I suggest you wait like the rest of us and the rest of the world, for this information to be available, from, I would assume, a local government source. Most of us are in the high risk category, you aren't alone. Be patient, sir.

  4. Yup. I think all the usual bases have been covered. The next post needs to work in “his” college students and the apartment in Guadalajara, THEN the thread can be locked. 😆

  5. Mexicans do tip at gas stations especially if attendant washes windows and checks tires. They know the attendants rely on the tips for the money they will make for the job. If only gasoline is put in, they may or may not tip but usually do. All the Mexicans I know tip every time even if only a few pesos. Usual tip is 10 pesos.

  6. Why is this even a topic of discussion? So there are differing opinions on how much a mask protects others and the wearer. So what? If there is a chance that it could lessen the infection and death rate, why would anyone object to wearing one? It's so incredibly juvenile. If anyone doubts that masks cut way down on the aerosols you expire, here's a brilliant little visual for you: https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/face-mask-cold-air-demo-covid-19_ca_5fb04b71c5b6b956698ba643

  7. The OP has made herself very clear. She does not want advice from people here. She wants to make contact with other Yorkie owners who view their dogs as their babies and having special needs owners of other breeds can not understand. If you are not one of those people please consider just scrolling on by. Or start a new thread about dog ownership in general.

  8. Excuse me but you are wrong. The numbers are very useful to me. As long as you use the same method to calculate the numbers which they do it is very useful. Whats with you and fear? I have no fear from these numbers. Keep it to yourself moderator and let us decide whether something is useful or not. Thanks Bisbee for posting these numbers.

  9. KN95 is a Chinese standards mask. N95 is a US standards mask. Both are the same efficiency but the Chinese mask can be a little bit harder to breath compared to the US standard. (I can't tell the difference) Surgical masks are just as good as the KN or N type mask with the virus. This is do to the viruses large size compared to other viruses. A surgical mask is much easier to breath with in my opinion. Surgical masks are not so good with other hazards compared to a K or KN type mask.. Cloth single layer masks are about 50% efficient. Multiple layers are a little bit more efficie

  10. Holier? No, I'm tired of the dog owners who think that their darling "fur baby" jumping up on people or other annoying dog behavior is adorable (Oh, he really likes you!) and forgivable because they see their dog not as a dog, but as their baby. Who think that Foofoo should be welcome everywhere that humans are. Who think dogs understand sentences like "Let's go outside and pee" when dog brains best understand and respond to simple one word commands or hand gestures. Had dogs all my life. They're dogs, not babies, and I'm not their mommy.

  11. Visit Chapala in April/May and then the coast in September/October to experience the hottest months of the year. After that you can make up your own minds. No one on this board can predict your individual tolerances for heat although if the south Florida humidity is tough you’ll probably feel the same about the coast of Mexico.

  12. Talk about beating a dead horse to death........ 1....Some Mexicans tip, some don´t 2....Some foreigners tip, some don´t Do, and how much, or don´t, is a personal choice, not a law, not a standard. Do whatever grabs you and quit worrying about how many Mexicans tip or don´t tip, as anything you do or don´t do is going to change the price of the gasolina.

  13. Do you really think anyone is just going to call some lawyer whose name you won't even give based on some strangers recommendation on a forum? A stranger who thinks getting a driver's license is a "government challenge" that one requires a lawyer for?

  15. With the ejection of certain political figures up north, the spirits of everyone seem to have lifted a great deal over the last few weeks. Optimism is overtaking anger. Here's hoping it spreads to this board. I'm with you guys.

  20. A federal program for Magic Towns is definitely still in place, as shown by this official publication of the basics in the Diario Oficial de la Federacón in March 2020: https://www.dof.gob.mx/nota_detalle.php?codigo=5588815&fecha=10/03/2020 Whether or not Ajijic being awarded Magic Town status (if that is what does indeed happen) is a good thing or a not-so-good thing is an entirely different matter.

  22. The Governor of Jalisco: This is a very important day. Today we present the next stage of the Jalisco #COVID1 9 Plan, in which #RadarJalisco, with the help of the Universidad de Guadalajara , will become the logistic platform for the application of the vaccine as soon as it becomes available in our state. The challenge facing us is titanic and we need to have everything ready to store millions of doses with the necessary cooling conditions, distribute them and apply three times more vaccines than has ever been done in Mexico and Jalisco. Just as at the beg

  24. I had seen this new small place open a few months ago and decided to try it since it is in walking distance of my house. 2 weeks ago Sunday I went and was impressed with the look and offerings on the menu as well as the Special board as you see in the photos here. I ordered the top Special on the board and it was GREAT! This past Sunday I went back and ordered the shrimp soup and the ravioli w/nuts from the board...again amazing...and with 2 cervesas...$250 (+ generous tip). Easy to find from the carretara...go south on the street next to the Sunrise Restaurant almost to the dead end at Ramon

  25. yes Soriana really improved after Walmart opened and so did the little stores.. I too remember the sorry state of many grocery stores, butchers and fishmarket before they came.When I came I was appalled to see rotting produce on te shelves of many stores and also I remember the fish market at Soriana stinkinng to the point I would not go near it. Yes there has been a lot of progress in the last 20 years..

  28. I feel like we now live in an age of easy travel, easy information (not the same as factual truth) and overcrowding. All of these elements were in play to spread the Covid 19 virus. I don't see those things changing here, or anyplace else, any time soon. I think we will get to a point where vaccines will prove effective for a long enough period of time to slow the spread once most of the folks get a vaccine. Do you remember polio and smallpox? Good vaccines were developed and almost universally used so that those viral diseases are no longer a daily worry. But today's information highway

  29. THANK YOU "UPFRONT" WHERE DID I SAY WE WERE GOING TO EAT "in" a RESTAURANT? I, too, dislike animals in restaurants, especially birds,, cats and giant dogs, or multiple tiny pups! Did you ever think I was planning on takeout? What difference is it to anyone what I call myself or my puppy? This website has become SO snarkey. I was just tying to connect with someone in a similar situation and I get verbally abused for that! Thank you, the few who understand!

  30. I am going to jump in anyway. Responsible small-breed dog breeders don't place their puppies until they are at least 12 weeks old. The time spent with mother dog and siblings is important. They learn puppy manners and beginning house breaking. Expect to have house training issues.

  35. I tip them 5 for a good and courteous job of pumping the gas, 15 for window cleaning front and back. The young lady who works the lake side island at the Riberas Pemex does an outstanding job of both. I get my gas from her whenever possible.

  37. Well, us older folks WILL come before our younger brethren but you are probably not understanding.... from all published reports.... just how monumental a task it will be to distribute all that vaccine throughout the United States. Your 'might mean' of early January 2021 is probably correct BUT only for the initial roll-out to docs, etc. And that will take a month or two before we begin to see anything at our local doctor and then into our arms. The Pfizer vaccine has to be kept at -70C from production to the last few (5) days. They have a plan for roll-out into the US that does NOT inclu
