  1. We have had this number for 13 years so I doubt that’s the case but that was a very good thought. 🙏.
  2. We have been getting 10 or more spam calls a day from fake computer generated numbers for 3 weeks now. There is a real person on the call speaking in rapid fire Spanish. It is not Telmex. Fortunately my base unit on my phone system allows me to block numbers when I enter them. Has anyone else experienced this problem or are my just lucky? If so, how did so deal with it without relying on medication?
  3. Oscar says they are planning on upping their game and making improvements to their current location or moving to a new location that they have found here. We first met them in their old location next door to where Elegante is now the night we first arrived in Ajijic. Wonderful family from their parents through their children! We will miss them while they are on sabbatical writing a cook book and selling real estate!
  4. Why tell us what you are gonna do, why not just go do it.
  5. Interestedly, I went by Paz this morning a bit before 10 AM and noticed it was closed. It may have always been the case but for some reason I thought it strange and I think that’s the only reason I noted it. Maybe a new law or temporary rule during the pandemic.
  6. The first sentence is a bit of a problem. The US Mexican border never closed. It did and still is closed to non essential traffic but I don’t believe that affected heath care here.
  7. No, I was not implying that the latest cases reported are not real and I have no idea why you would suggest I were. You need to go back and repeat Mind Reading 101. The case I was referring to was reported several weeks ago.
  8. I think there may have been some doubt about the veracity of the story.
  9. And perhaps, like the the trees along the bike path, they will provide some shade in about 30 years...
  10. Good Eric, You have it all figured out. Business don’t need customers. Please keep us posted on how this works out.
  11. I worked in the chemical industry for a while and hold a few patents. Patents can of different types; process, application, or composition of matter for example. So for a given pharmaceutical you could have one or several patents covering how the active ingredient is made, what it is used to treat, and how it is compounded or delivered to make it work properly. There is a lot of art in disguising from your competitors what you are marketing by claiming broad ranges of materials that may or may not actually be in the product in the market. This is an oversimplification but I think you can get the idea🙂
  12. The overwhelming majority of those who die are older folks, true, but you don’t have to be old to contact and spread COVID. This has not yet run its course. I am not a fan of big government but this has to be contained.
  13. And that has worked? Half the government and military have been in bed with the cartels for as long as I can remember. The Navy has been the best but even they have had issues. The cartels simply have too much money.
  14. I just received a delivery yesterday for 2 orders I place about 2 weeks ago. If you live more than 30 km from a store the charge a MXN 1000 delivery fee. I didn’t realize there was a distance restriction of the free shipping for orders that met the minimum charge for free shipping. The driver that delivered to us came with wife and child accompanying him in his own truck and had no idea where anything was locally. With everyone ordering online they have to find delivery people wherever they can. It’s an adventure.
  15. Well, I’ll fill you in on my odyssey. As suggested I went to El Torino-no luck. Next stop, Walmart. The vermouth way in a row that was blocked off by a skid of wine. Not to be deterred, I reached down the row a snagged 2 bottles of vermouth. I figured I’d try my luck at the cash register shrugging my shoulders and saying it was just vino. To make my ploy less obvious,I tossed some produce into the cart before heading for check out. Busted, the cashier actually read the alcohol content on the label. Driving home to west Ajijic I noticed, as Deborah M has now pointed out, that the door to Vinos America’s was open. Embarrassingly, I made a u-turn and pulled into the parking lot.They were more than happy to sell me 2 bottles and I fled the parking lot before they could come out to tell me they had make a mistake. Pretty pathetic, eh! -
  16. I had the foresight to stock up on gin before the ban on sales but neglected to buy dry vermouth. Any one have a thought where I might buy some. Even though I only add a tough of vermouth if start drinking straight gin I’ll feel like an alcoholic!
  17. The Texas Supreme Court just acquitted her of all charges....
  18. Flu is a virus as is a cold and there have many versions of it. Which strain are you talking about. Where is your data. What is your background and why should anyone pay any attention.to you.
