  1. He is not necessarily promoting more development of this area. He just wants to make a cool video. Many people before him have come and made videos about Lake Chapala. Nothing is wrong with that. If he is as good as he says, his videos will make for an interesting watch. I'll watch them. Folks try to lighten up a little and enjoy life.
  2. Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic. And in Chapala we have the American Legion where expats tend to congregate.
  3. Yeah don't let some of the naysayers here discourage you. In reality this area truly has a lot of nice and kind people Mexican and Expats alike. And sure there have been lots of mini documentaries and videos made about life down here in the Chapala area over the years. Each video is unique and different and no they don't all say the same things obviously. And many of us really enjoy watching them on You Tube. I don't understand why some people always have to be so negative. I look forward to watching any video you make please just post the link when finished.
  4. When I can't find President I just buy Lurpak.
  5. Yes Kiko the door always tends to swing both ways. Two years ago or more before this pandemic and the Trump era I would have identified with the liberal side of the aisle but the leftists have gone so far out in left field lately that I can no longer blindy side with all their ideas and mandates. And who ever called you a pile of manure, I would not of sided with that person and I doubt that he is my friend. Since our politics are now so extreme and polarized it is now better to scrutinize both sides and attempt to pick a middle of the road view. Growing up I used to think the nasties were only on the right. Now I see things differently. This board is living proof. Sure we have one crazy drunk BB boy going off on illegible and incomprehensible arguments. But he isn't what I would call nasty, just loco. Those on the right tend to come across as possibly more snarky but those on the left are the ones that are getting the nastiest and using the vilest and vulgarist language. I haven't read anywhere where a conservative told someone to die but there are several posts from the nasty squad here telling others that if they don't mask up or vaccinate they can go die. The leftists have become the new nasties. But their power is now slowly beginning to diminish thank goodness.
  6. Mudgirl you are being rather nit-picky with your interpretations of posts. Please let it go. Your girl Virgo was sent to time out because of her nasty behavior. I know you have never been quite that nasty but please respect that the mods deemed it necessary for her this time around to sit in the corner.
  7. Its quite possible you were near the Río Orinoco then you went to La Gran Sabana and then onto Salto Angel or near Roraima. That is where most tourists go. Lots of unique things to see and explore there. Venezuela has beautiful and totally unique natural environments while México out performs with its history, culture, and colonial cities. Venezuela can't compete with those things. But Venezuela has amazing nature and their Andes Mountains are out of this world, in and around Mérida should not be missed either.
  8. If you would reread his original post I think it would be crystal clear. He came discussing some interesting projects about him possibly making a series about expat life in México, several people came instantly offering recomendations and insight. Until Virgo lady walks in to the room spewing her usual nauseating dosis of vile hate and nastyness. And now she is sitting in time-out thanks to the mods.
  9. Oh you traveled to Venezuela? I used to live in San Cristóbal, Táchira State up in the Andés Mountains. Such a beautiful country.
  10. Yes Mudgirl and Fred, I agree that it is very very sad when members do that. When members try to censor other member's ideas and opinions and they resort to childish antics and swearing to push their agendas. Very very sad indeed!
  11. I don't know the exact number, just spend some time reading threads in the Octagon section and come back and give us your take. Many of those that left in disgust were people intolerant to differences of ideas and contrary opinions. I would say quite a few folks that have been banned here over the years ended up over there. But yet some came back here under new names and new encarnations. And there is a reason for that. TOB is less stimulating. You need a diverse group of people with diverse takes and opinions to make a board interesting. When you constantly try to shut people down and censor their opinions like Virgo lady has been trying to do for some time, once those people leave you are left with a very bland and boring webboard. Hence TOB.
  12. I was thinking about mentioning the other board. But it is a rather low traffic board and its members are comprised of many who were banned from Chapala.com for their nasty child like comments. They are mostly a like minded group who have run off most people who have opposing ideas. Their Octagon section has few rules and that is where the close minded bullies tend to hang out. You won't see a lot of differeng opinions on that board. You could check out expatforum.com and go to the Mexico section. They have people living all over Mexico there.
  13. I think your idea of creating a video series of expat life in this area would be really interesting. I would definitely watch it. Sorry for the silly arguing. Just some of these nasty intolerant people really rub me the wrong way. I did not mean to hijack your thread.
  14. Virgo lady, just because someone has an independent mind and questions things and are not so quick to believe everything they see or hear on the internet does not make them a Trump supporter or someone who carries confederate flags. What is wrong with you? And no, so far I have not had any variant of Covid that I am aware of, so I guess that article of yours about Covid shrinking peoples brains would not apply to me.
  15. Did I read that correctly? Half your post was indiscriminate swearing?
  16. Virgo lady, you certainly have an air about yourself that is very odious and nasty. You tend to say the most vile and horrible things to just about anybody on this forum that disagree with you and you are not diplomatic in the least. The fear of Covid and the whole isolation issue has not been kind to you. It turned you into an angry solitairy and bitter human.
  17. I think I am beginning to see a pattern here. The people on this board who are the most gung ho and most hard core when it comes to mandates and Covid protocols are also the nastiest by far. And Virgo lady wears the crown. Maybe all that social distancing, isolation and mask wearing isn't working for some folks. Go outside your home, breath in some fresh air, live your life and try to find happiness again!
  18. Virgo try to support your fellow Canadians. No need to be nasty to everybody on this board, keep it to those that you really detest.
  19. But isn't there always going to be a new variant? Isn't that the same with the flu every year? It mutates and changes constantly that is why the flu vaccine is only good 50% of the time on a good year. We either learn to live with Covid or spend the rest of our lives living in fear.
  20. Thats sad news since it just opened up maybe 2 months or more ago. But I'm glad your guests enjoyed it. Hopefully another competent person will open up a good restaurant in its place.
  21. I know someone who is a Ham Radio operator down here. He got his reciprocal license 10 years ago when they were giving them out. Its expired now but still he hasn't had any problems with any authorities yet. He ordered a beam antenna from a company in the States and they delivered it here and had a ham engineer in Guadalajara come and install it for him on his mirador. Its working great and still no problems after 4 years, knock on wood though. But it is quite obvious. Once he hears that they are issueing reciprocal licenses again, of course he'll go to the Zapopan office and renew.
  22. Here is an interesting article from yahoo news today about the CDC that should raise some red flags. Why hasn't the CDC been totally honest with the American people about the pandemic why have they not been releasing all their data that they have been collecting over the past two years? And claiming that they fear the data may be misinterpreted is a poor excuse. The data must and should be made public to all. https://us.yahoo.com/news/cdc-isnt-publishing-large-portions-124915536.html
  23. It is not unheard of that immunocompromised people can die from a simple cold. But thousands of people die from the flu every year even children.
  24. I have never ever said don't get the vaccines. Yes, the science says you will be more protected from developing a deadly case of Covid. But its protection doesn't last that long. I was just pointing out the reality that the vaccines are far from being the miraculous cure all for this virus that many seem to blindly believe. The science also says the probability of the virus remaining with us for ever is pretty darn high. Vaccines have not eliminated the common cold and the common flu yet, nor will it eliminate Covid. Lets be realistic here.
