  1. Interesting I remember the tiles you are talking about, they made them 20 years ago and the place that used to be by Telmex had them. I was fixing up the house then and I remember them.. They also had them in a store on Ninoes Heroes in Guadaljara.. They came from Dolores Hidalgo .. I guess they all discontinued them.
  2. Maincoon did you take your tiles to Mexico arte or something like that n Riberas. They used to have the tiles you are talking about , Their tiles are made in Dolores Hidalgo and they have made tiles for me in the exact color I wanted which was differnt from the one they had in stock.
  3. The problem with old tiles is that the enamel had led and now everything is lead free. The bathrooms in my house are all old tiles and when I remodelled I gave up being able to match them and mixed the new and the old.. The new tiles have more vivid colors not because they are new but because they are led free..
  4. Unfortunately for some areas we had Carnaval where plenty of people mngled without any distancing or mask.. so we will see in a couple of weeks if that had any effect. I am really curious about it in Chiapas where indigenous do not wear masks and do not take care of themselves and in the cooler highlands, I believe there is very little covid in the communities if any but people are still dying of it in the low lands.. If no one is getting infected after the thousands of people mingled, they should check out why, herd immunity or other reason? Of course no one will investigate but there
  5. Yes pathetic but it is what we have so let´s hope for the best..
  6. Well ar best it will be April and octiber so lets keep these dares in mind and see. I am not too worried about the first dosis but the second may be a little more difficult the way they are going..
  7. do not worry, today is Carnaval and people have been partying like mad without didtances or masks for 5 days.. If people in Chamula, Chiapas do not have more contagion they should send investigators to find out why they are inmune... Yes very litlle testing.. Over the last year my sister was tested 5 times .. here NADA
  8. I know many girls who are not 18 and eloped to the house of the boyfriend and get married after they get 18 or when the boyfriend has more money. I was just invited to the wedding of a friend who is 38 and has been with her huband since she was 14.. He was 24.. They just got married, have 3 children and no more planned. Her oldest boy is 21 and has one chld after 3 years of living with his wife. So less children bit in indigenous areas girls elope at a very young age.and then get married but do not have a child every year like their grandmother did.
  9. I said that because it is useless to discuss what would be better. They will do what they will do no matter what we think or do. I have lived here a long time so and learn about patiience dealing with the government down in Chiapas so no problem. I just feel sorry for the people who do not speak Spanish.. Hopefully when they call people they may make a note or have people who speak English on the next call...you never know..
  10. well you can forget about the e-mails so now what?
  11. or who ever has to work with other people.. Anyone working out in the public has the same or should have the same worry. So many people need to get protected that it is not that easy to make up the priorities.. There are different priorities in different countries and that is the way it is .. nothing is perfect and really no one really knows.. Future will tell who was right..
  12. It is probably the same in most countries in the world so no point worrying about it.
  13. I think we can forget about private vaccines for quite a while so get what you can when they offer it...
  14. Artnob the problem now is that there is no extra vaccine outside of what is allocatedto countries..eventually it will losen up but right now you cannot buy vaccines. If you want to be vaccinated by whatever vaccine they are offering do it or go to another country.. That is the choice we have now.. in a few months who knows.. They are vaccinating people nowm according to what they say.. Where I do not know.
  15. How do you know when the provate sector wiññ get the vaccine? The school I work for told me to take it because it will be a long while before they ca buy vaccines.
  16. also via phone you can answer questions quiickly if there is a doubt. Once the call is over it shouldall be settled.. Way easier than e maiil for those who speak Spanish. You never know when they call to confirm chapala they may have people who speak English otherwise people who cannot comunicate in Spanish may have to forward their calls to someone who does until the process is over. or have someone who speak Spanish answer..
  17. That is good news canmex. At this point which vaccine is irrelevant at least they all protect equally against evere covid....according to one of the doctor who was speaking on CNN.. This is not a guarranty but it is something..
  18. yes but you quicly find out that when you say that they speak louder but not slower . That is what I learned at chool and it is truemostof the time with people who do not speak another language.
  19. what we think is totally irrelevant. They have their system setup and if calling is what they want to do so be it. Meanwhile do we know if the people they call are over 80.. That is their priority so it would explain why some people have been called and some not..
  20. There is a restoration school in Guadaljara--
  21. Do not count on them leaving messages, I rarely get mesage from Mexicans in my buzon I would say , it happens less than 1 percent of the time.
  22. I got a call yesterday from 55 88009481 , I did not hear the call. No mesage was left. Anyone recognizes the number? I wonder if it was it or if it was , if they will call back soon...
  23. probably could let it soak in Mezcal and once all the liquid has been absorbed and the jicara is soaked then it will not leak anymore..
