  1. According to Wikipedia, as Mudgirl has already pointed out, the species of skunks found in Mexico are called Spotted Skunks which are smaller and quite different looking than that of the skunk commonly seen in the US known as the Striped Skunk. Since Mudgirl lives on the coast the skunk she sees is probably that of the Pygmy Spotted Skunk. The ones around Chapala are known as the Southern Spotted Skunk.
  2. Considering the fact that Covid-19 comes from the same family of viruses as the Common Flu and that it has been said to be very similar and behave very similary, I'm not so sure herd immunity will be much of a factor for this virus. We don't develop true herd immunity for the common flu, every year it mutates and comes back differently and every year most people tend to catch it for a few days. Thousands of elderly die from the flu every year in the US. I don't see Covid-19 behaving much differently. Even with a vaccine, the vaccine will only keep you safe for about 4 months until a new mu
  3. Farmacia Guadalajara prints pictures usually from a flash drive or memory stick, but I'm sure with todays reliance on phones they would know exactly how to print one from your phone very easily.
  4. Is Super Lake having problems getting things down across the border?
  5. Have it brought up to the carretera and see how long it lasts.
  6. The winter rains are called Las Cabañuelas.
  7. In Chapala the Surtidor was also open in addition to the Oxxos and most of the smaller abarrotes, cremerías, and fruit and vegetable stands.
  8. I don't believe the government should be forcing any store or business to be closing down outside of normal operating hours unless they are prepared to hand out stimulus checks to make up for their lose of business. Wrecking the economy will not erradicate or reduce the virus, it is only a game of cat and mouse. The virus has been here since last December and apparently is here to stay just like the common flu is always present. No amount of vaccines, face mask wearing is going to get rid of this virus. It needs to run its course and normalize like the flu had to do. These new measures wi
  9. I think that is a question for Lakeside7. But shortening the hours can't seriously be the answer. That just crowds more people together at the same times. All the people that were going out to eat or shop at 8 or 9 must now do so earlier at the same time when the 5 or 6 o'clock people are out there. The weekend shoppers are now forced to shop along side the weekday shoppers. Shortening is not the key, they should be lengthening the hours so more people can come at different times so they can avoid large gatherings.
  10. It always makes more sense to shorten the hours so more and more people will be forced to shop together at the same times. Maybe, they can bring the lines back where you are forced to stand directly in front of or directly behind a cougher for 5 or 10 mins while you wait to enter, surely you won't get Covid that way.
  11. Why do you think 95 percent of the population might die from Coronavirus if restaurants don't close at by 7. The restaurants at Lakeside are busiest between 3 and 5. So, how again does keeping them open during their busiest hours and making them close up early so they don't make enough profit to survive, how is that stopping the spread of Covid? All it does is hurt the average Mexican worker.
  12. In the Mitzi stores (there are 3 on Madero Ave.) They usually carry the Garnier Nutrisse brand, but I never knew it was Canadian though.
  13. I also walk the Chapala malecón almost daily and have been doing so for the past 9 and a half years. To my non-scientific brain, I honestly don't see it to be so terribly low. I actually think it looks higher than it has been for many of the years that I have lived here minus the past 3 years, it seems stable and normal for this time of year. Yes, I do recall it was slightly higher last year, but this year does not seem, so far, to be alarmingly low compared to the past 9 years I have experienced here. This year seems to be fairly normal. And I hope it continues to be so. The only thing
  14. Telmex usually has at least one English speaking rep available when you call the 800 number. Just ask for inglés porfavor, usually helps.
