    What about Cristinia Park? Is that pool closed????


    The last time I looked it was not swimable. There is no place lakeside really, even though we are on a large lake. The lake is cold and dirty but if you wear the right gear it would be okay. I have looked and given up.

    How about anywhere? I have an Akona Quantum wetsuit for sale. Size 5 xl but dont let that put you off. Wetsuits are always too tight. 3 mm tropical weight, down to a comfortable 65 degrees. $150 US.






    The lake would be wide open to swimming if you had a wetsuit.

    Jeez, since the OP is asking about flu shots locally, I was referring to the Mexican federal government. Our governor (Enrique Alfaro, of the state of Jalisco--to avoid confusion for you) held a press conference repeating this information. You can likely find it on his official Facebook page, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez.

    That is better. In your first post you are writing about the US government .

    Last week the federal government announced that the first round of flu shots, out Oct 1, is for children 6 mo-5 years. Seniors, pregnant women, and people at risk are eligible October 15. Some healthcare providers here already are taking a wait list.


    In the US, two dosages (different manufacturers) are available: the standard shot and the more potent shot for adults 65 and older. Depending on the flu season and whee in the US the flu typically peaks factors into availability. Texas, for example, has been available since the first of September; our GP there recommends it early as it takes several weeks for the vaccine to fully protect you.

    The federal government of which country?

    Yes, it is one and the same. I just know that one of Mike and Mario's office phone #s is 766-1117. Oh, and I have an older Chapala directory up here in Seattle showing that their second office # is 766-3371. Oh and they have been in business lakeside for at least 24-25 years. And I have always had very good luck with them.

    Thanks. I have had good service from them. They know what they are doing.

    I think that is nonsense. I spent several hours today wandering around back streets of Jocotepec this morning and they can only be described as 3rd world. I can't think of a better way of describing them.

  7. Methanol is not an acceptable ingredient for hand sanitizers and should not be used due to its toxic effects,” the organization said in a press release. ... “If soap and water are not readily available, the CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent ethanol.”Jun 30, 2020


    Clinicians and public health practitioners should educate patients and the public that some alcohol-based hand sanitizers or rubs may contain a significant amount of methanol and using these products may result in serious adverse health events (e.g., blindness and death).Jul 5, 2020

    But according to the FDA, some of the hand sanitizers on the market contain a toxic ingredient -- methanol -- that is dangerous when ingested or absorbed through the skin, and can be fatal in large quantities.Jul 28, 2020


    amazing Upfront thinks he knows more than trained scientists and researchers at the FDA. Should we believe anything he posts?



    We learned in high school that methanol could be dangerous-where were you?
