  1. Very sorry to hear about that.. I hope your friend is OK
  2. I have a schwab account where they deposit my SS but theysay they cannot deposit that check... there so they will mail it to our address here.. I just received the letter they sent in May so good luck to the check.. Ny the way I am a foreigner who was on a green crd and I pay taxes there and I will receive the payment ig it ever comes... That may answer spme questions from other people who are in the same situation.
  3. Situation in Chiapas Totally off from what the government is reporting. They want to be in the orange zone so they do not test, do not accept people with covirus in the hospitals so undercount by 10 times and more and will be in the orange zone.. For those of you who want to go there do not... In many indigeeous comunities the covirus is not recognized as real and they think it is an invention of the government , meanwhile they will tell yo that they have hd many people sick and dying of the ENFERMEDAD... with fever, toss and loss of taste but that they have a special tea that cures it.. They also say that it is over and that the people who were to die, died and the others are recupering... The situation down there is a little like a twighlight zone pretty scary... For those who are curious check the article Chiaps the dead they did not count-- from 35 death in onth they went up to 370 but none of it is reported as covirus...
  4. no it is not a waste of time or money to file a denuncia and it s your duty to file one , without it the chances of people getting away for what they did is even greater....I would enroll the help of SPencer for reporting and maybe some type of investigator if Spencer knows one worth the money. I sure would not offer money in general, people are not pet and you need to offer a whole lot money which makes you appear on the radar of not so nice people..
  5. Also if you have the person phone number you can ask them to check ther phone records when you do the denuncia.. That may give clues.. Unfortunately , they will not share what they findout IF they actually follow up.. It is really discouraging to look for someone here..
  6. it looks like you are looking for someone who disappeared.. maybe in a hospital.. Do not forget the morgue if you have details or some foul play was involved.. Good luck on the denunca , they do not make t easy and ther response was underwheming a few years ago.. Hopefully they are more on the ball now...
  7. It probably is vastly underestimated everywhere in the world.. I know many people in France and Mexico who had it and never reported it.. That is not uncommon for the people who can stay home and get over it. There is no medecine for it and no cure so unless it san emergency why even go tho the doctor.
  8. so?? I sure would not eat fish from the lake..Once in a while ok but not 3 or 4 times a week...
  9. Mexico has a whole has done a terible job at protecting its people and taking the epidemy seriously. I lost another friend yesterday in Oaxaca.. The situation is awful in Southern Mexico.. between the dengue,. the covid and other zika and chickungunia many people are sick,do not see the doctors or go to the hospitals so they do not get reported. The situation is really scary and no one seem to really care... The country is reopening just when the situation is going worse and there seem no real effort from the government toenforce mask wearing and social distancing.. Lets all forget itexist and burry our head in the sand and think it will go away.. Good luck to all of us.. I am not fear mongering , I am just seeing and reporting what I see.
  10. Farmed fish s not that healty to eat.. may be better off rasing chickens..
  11. By the way anyone knows the count on Chapala.. I have not heard anything lately...
  12. bmh

    No Cedros , not so fine.

  13. june and september are good for flash floods n southern France..
  14. I wonder what all the people who bought hydrocloroquine just in case are going to do with it since ut has been banned from using it with covid because it does not work afterall.....just because you buy oxigen does not mean you will be saved or even need oxigene, something else nay get you.. Do not second guess nature say..
  15. correct the virus attacks other organs than the lungs.. my brother was doing better on the respirator when he died...When people get put on respirators they are just about gone as they cannot breath any longer or are about to get there. Also surviving the respirator may not be the best thing to wish on people, the respirators do a lot of damage to the body as well.. Better pray for no one to need a respirator.. Oxigen ok but respirator, no thanks- It is a last ditch effort to save a life , no matter what.
  16. obviously they were on their way to rescue them with ambulancias and unmarked trucks..
  17. Kyles the ambulances and trucks were coming from West Ajijic. You must have missed them or they were quiet when they went by. Were there ambulances on the libramiento as well?
  18. one hour go we were going west and were n front of the wne storeon the carratera and saw 3 ambulances and 4 unmarked pckups with blasting sirens going east... We had to stop as a car was out of commission on the carretera and there was no room for us and the ambulances going towards us.. Did not see anything going west..We were going west and no one passed us.
  19. You guys live in a bubble if you think maid is dememeaning.. and that we live like colonials. A friend of mine who is indigenous has not one but two live in maids.. She pays 800 pesos a week and the chachas get room and board and works from 7 till 4 with Saturday afternoon off and Sunday. and that is the real world in Chiapas. I know many Mexicans who have chachas and live-in chachas and this has nothing to do with slavery or the colonial times, it is life in Mexico.Whether the women are working all day or part time they are called chachas.
  20. You give a raise for showing up?? How nice.. I pay the gardeners the going rate and right now they get by the hour the same as a mason so I m not anxious to give them a raise especially since I have to keep an eye on them and keep them in tract. If they were making 50 pesos an hour it would be different but at 70 they are getting overpaid in compataison to what does a mason.. So everyone is in a differnt boat..
  21. The father team Miguel and Jorge , Ajijic have fixed my system 333 1974001
  22. the people owning the ejido look at the ejido land as their private land...and they have the right to do so. What is intersting about the whole controversy up hull is that communal land and ejial land was granted so indigenous and campesinos ha access to lan to build their houses and to have milpas. In a lot of indigenous areas people have to use the land if they want to keep it, if they do not they lose it. They are also the ones taking care of the land and going there when there are fires, when they need to take care of the land.. Here this part has been forgotten ...they only want the land to control it which is not the original deal. Ejidal land is land that was taken away from haciendas and distributedd to communities Communal lan is land that was granted by the Spaniards t indigenous.. I can see that in Mezcala the Coca people have those types of rules and are the true owners.. Above Ajijic it is a joke,, the indigenous here are not really indigenous any longer, they do not live according to ejidal or communal land but they want the benefits an want to deny access to people who have been there just about as long as they have. It is pretty controversial and they do not want anyone snooping around as they want to sell the place and do not want any photos of anyone beginning to clear when they want to clear the place...
