  1. Thanks mudgirl. Pedro, just keep right on enjoying those stogies.
  2. I don't think that's a compliment.
  3. Swapping one kind of food for another... tomatoes for potatoes, etc.? They're not all selling exactly the same foods.
  4. Um. They're sellers of food. Maybe they should just swap/barter among themselves and go home and feed their families.
  5. And this is happening all over the world as the pollution clears from shut downs. https://ca.yahoo.com/news/himalayas-seen-first-time-decades-193622151.html
  6. I agree about Alfaro. However, the Chinese are now on the hunt for all the asymptomatic silent carriers to prevent a second wave. Better double that order of test kits. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-china/china-seeks-to-contain-silent-carriers-of-new-coronavirus-idUSKCN21R009?feedType=nl&feedName=healthNews&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=US 2018 Health Report 2020-04-09&utm_term=2018 - US Health Report
  7. You haven't BUT the San Juan Cosala group have been providing help to the less fortunate for a very long time. The masks were another of their efforts and the masks were sewn by those that they help. Win/Win. It was always a matter of choice as to whether you paid 100 pesos for a mask for yourself and another for someone who couldn't afford one at all OR just a flat 50 pesos for a mask for yourself. It would have been more than sufficient to just name Vicky as a source for masks WITHOUT your unfortunate comment about gouging. Spend your 20 peso saving wisely.
  8. Is there anything here that is appropriate for you Harry? https://www.amazon.com.mx/s?k=cpap&__mk_es_MX=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&crid=122Y8YI9F49M3&sprefix=CPap%2Caps%2C207&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_4 And this is definitely in the wrong section if you want more feedback. Moderator?
  9. I didn't find it. It was sent to me by a friend who said I would like it. I did. I found it uplifting... as the tears cascaded down my face. It reminded me of Desiderata. Desiderata Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others…even the dull and the ignorant for they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons for they are vexations unto the spirit. If you compare yourself with others you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble…it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs for the world is full of trickery. But, let this not blind you to what virtue there is…many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere, life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love for, in the face of all aridity, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the council of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings for many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here and, whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be…and, whatever your aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Strive to be happy. Found in old St. Paul’s Church 1692 Baltimore, Maryland

  11. S.O.B. I agree with Jreboll. It's where you have your strongest resources. Although I have family in Canada, I have lived in Mexico for 24 years and everything is at my fingertips and close by. Doctors who make housecalls and a hospital 5 minutes away. A well stocked pantry and home delivery for nearly anything I could want or need. Hangin' out in paradise...with TWO good internet sources.
  12. This thread from this forum may be of interest... This thread is from TOB and includes the report back... https://www.insidelakeside.com/t20991-antique-clock-repair?highlight=antique+clock+repair
  13. Four pages of white Mercedes SUV's. You can further tweak it by state location or year or ? but it's only four pages. https://soloautos.mx/vehiculos/autos/usado-tipo-de-autos/mercedes-benz/todo-terreno-carroceria/blanco-color/?offset=0
  14. You must have missed the part about N95 masks being in short supply worldwide? Even for those in hospitals on the front lines?
  15. Thanks Go Solar. I had received that as an mp4 and didn't know how to post it here. Great memories and looked forward to M.A.S.H every week.
  16. Ventilators in Mexico https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/coronavirus/35-firms-work-together-to-manufacture-15000-ventilators/
  17. Very happy to read this but it emphasized the importance of testing on a wide spread scale. Until a vaccine is available and/or drug trials are sorted out, this is the good old fashioned way of helping. Good on Jason! https://us.cnn.com/2020/04/06/us/plasma-donor-coronavirus/index.html
  18. This was way down in the forum so I am posting it here where more people can see it.
