  1. As far as I remember you have always needed a receipt, proof of purchase. It shows the date you bought it and the price you paid for it. How do you expect them to accept it back if you can't even prove you got it there?

  4. I quit reading when I saw, "There is not a single documented Covid infection anywhere in the world from casual outdoor interactions, such as walking past someone on a street or eating at a nearby table." Why anyone, much less a news publication, would use this absurd statement to justify anything is beyond me. It's not documented because it neigh impossible to document where anyone actually GOT the virus... at least not in any numbers that could possibly be used as a reference point. But we'll use that statement and hope that no one actually thinks about how misleading it is.

  5. Inferring that I have "dementia" is not a personal attack??? Not surprising, coming from you.

  6. You assume a lot. First of all, it is none of your business whether I personally got a shot or why I did/could not go if I did not. I was not talking about myself. Some of us know/care about people whose lives are different from their own. We like to remind people that what may seem easy/affordable to them may not be possible for others. Stop being so nosy and judgmental.

  7. I appreciate you directed this only to AMERICANS, but there are many other foreigners and Mexican nationals outside that group who have not had their first shot. And who are you to judge who does or does not have the "means".... even in the American sector?.... and/or what they did with their relief payments? There are many Americans here who are having a very hard time making ends meet for varying reasons. Yes, I do know some. So just because you are in a fortunate financial %age don't be so quick to assume all are in that basket with you.

  10. Excuse me I have not made anything up. My posts regarding the US land border are 100% accurate & 100 % truthful. The regulations are very clear. My personal crossings in Feb and March are accurate. My conversation with 3 immigration agents were truthful and all 3 said they did not consider a vaccination appointment as a Medical appointment under the rules. It is possible that a different agent might. As I have stated before the agents at the point of entry have the ability to admit people if they deem it is correct.

  11. I hope.....never. Can´t believe anyone would spend one second on such a nonsense waste of time. When will the first snow fall in Minneapolis or the first wildfire starts in California or the first frost in New Hampshire. They all happen every year and someone here will feel compelled to explain in great scientific detail why when it is raining, like today, it is not the "rainy season". How many snowfalls in Minneapolis is considered for the start of the "snowy season"?

  12. We’re more than a year into this pandemic and most of us have decided what to believe and what not to believe, what to do and what not to do and yet here we go rehashing last years arguments. If my wife nagged half as much as MC does I would have left her years ago.

  13. Put your glasses on. Ladner said GP not OP. Judging from the conversation a GP would be a General Practitioner or family Doctor. If the people in charge of this second vaccine rollout locally are the same ones as for the first rollout, they should be fired and I don't care if they're all volunteers. An unbelievable disastrous inefficient mess.

  14. There are still some in Chapala who haven't had their first shot either. However, don't be such a grump and let those who can enjoy their new found status. Anyone who is fully vaccinated is a step in the right direction.

  15. Obviously, there are differing points of view on the right way to deal with this plague, and some are spending a lot of time finding authorities to back them up. The way I see it is: It's not going to harm anyone to wear a mask around others; not wearing one "could" be harmful to others. So, no matter who's right, I'll go along with the "official" position and wear the danged thing for the time being. I'm a lot more concerned about other matters, like the completely chaotic way the vaccinations here are being administered.

  17. Aiming this at people like Harry B, Hector, jrod, and a few others who seem to have better access than the rest of us, on behalf of those who for whatever reason did NOT get their first dose. Is there a way any of you have a pipeline to the "powers" to address this? While I don't belong in this group, there are many right here in this community (not to mention other areas I'm sure) who would seriously welcome any help you can procure. Gracias!!

  18. Look folks I am sorry I brought this up but some of your excuses are pathetic. Right now things are somewhat stable here. BUT What happens if the Indian variant turns up here and is deadly? Look right now 4000 people are dying a day in India. Maybe you won't be able to fly at that point. Whether you like it or not (Politically) a vaccine passport will be needed to fly in the future. Many airlines and countries are talking about this right now. You could be stuck here. Do you want to be the have or the have not. We may be getting it under control in many countries but it is

  19. I messaged Isaac Trejo about this and did not hear back. Alfaro says it is under the umbrella of the Bienestar people, who will be contacting people at some point later in time to do home visits and he didn't get back to me either, nor did the head of IMSS (who did respond to me once, early on.) I'm sure someone, somewhere has the plan but throughout this Covid vaccination process, information and details have been keep close to the vest, rather than share publicly and update regularly as things change, which would have, in my opinion, reduced anxiety and the zillions of individual queries abo

  23. Many homes in the Lake Chapala area are not connected to any sewer system and this includes many "high end" neighborhoods. So people put in a septic tank but most do not have the space to install a leach field pipe so the tanks sometimes just overflow if not pumped out. To reduce the volume of waste water entering their septic tanks, they many times just run their gray water from sinks, washing machines, etc. out a drainpipe that lets this water flow downhill onto the street. The problems with waste water treatment facilities are the expense to build, dependable operation and maintenan

  25. My point exactly! I'm one of the "rather eat ground glass" than be in one of those sterile, boring, isolate-me-from-real-Mexico places! Nobody can judge what's best for another. Come. Explore. Check things out. Test the waters. THEN decide.... and know that might even mean "we don't like it here at all".

  27. Good advice TelsZ4 and MezLuis. After rolling in the mud, I feel that I am just as dirty. Lesson learned, I initially thought valid questions were being asked, by another poster. Hope everyone has a great day. We are in an amazing place.

  28. It all began with a well meaning post to convey information. I thought it was most helpful. Too many engage in "assault" tactics here. And, in Covid times there appears to be an added trigger, as many don't even acknowledge emotionally just how the stress of the crisis has hit them. I think before we type, it would be helpful to think twice, and try extra hard to be kinder to one another.

  29. I´m sorry that you are sorry. Just let me know what I owe you for your vocabulary consultancy services. As far as the disappointment, I imagine I will survive if I suck it up, and with lots of alcohol.

  30. Boca Mar, Benito Juarez 547 A, behind the mercado, not only offers fresh seafood, they will cook it for you too. I ordered a half kilo of coconut shrimp and now see how it should be made. They were in balls and void of a tail shell. Just the right size to eat with your hand. The order was more than two chowhounds could eat at a sitting. With side salad 155 MXN.

  32. I too have become somewhat 'skeptical' of information that is coming out of the CDC. But IMO that agency has been forced to become political along with being scientific and THAT is never a good thing. In addition, there is no 'playbook' for this virus and by definition 'scientific' is never meant to mean 100% sure, 100% of the time. When more is learned, releasing that information is a gift, not a cause for denial of the entire program. But what I am more skeptical of is when seemingly smart folks believe that they have all the information they need, that it can never be upgraded by new

  37. I am just back from Chapala having received my second vaccination. I was mislead, or misunderstood the wait time and the number of people that would be getting the shot. I arrived at 7:40 AM and got in a very long line going south (I think) on the sidewalk. I got in line at the Red Cross. I was talking with a Canadian, also in line and he had been there for his first shot. He said there were 1000 people ahead of us and it would take 5 hours. He was right on. If I had known that I would have been there a whole lot earlier. There were untold people after us who kept coming. Parking is quic
