  1. You can't blow a candle? Sounds like oxygen deprivation to me. I have trouble breathing well with just the cloth ones.
  2. I have been calling him for days and still answer. I've even tried to message him on Whatsapp to no avail.
  3. You can always try asking the Totalplay guys that hang out at Walmart by the door as you go out, handing out brochures.
  4. Jugo is straight up juice that is squeezed from the fruit. While nectar has added water and often times added sugar to compensate for the watery taste.
  5. If you have a blender or a food processor you could grind it yourself, it would be cheaper that way. If you want to spend the extra money for the covenience check at Super Lake.
  6. Just out of curiosity, I am far from being a potato connoisseur but the pototoes called dirty potatoes are they much different than the regular washed white potatoes? The ladies in the fruterías all insist that they are better for frying. Since they are slightly more expensive, are they worth the extra price or are they basically the same as the washed potatoes? What is you guy's opinions.
  7. Here is an interesting article from Business Insider off of Yahoo news that should calm some people down a little bit who are still freaked out by Omicron. https://us.yahoo.com/news/many-people-hospitalized-omicron-surge-171732632.html
  8. Johanson, I just wonder after you get that booster how long do you reckon you will be safe from Covid? 3 months 4 months? These kind of vaccines are the kind you have to keep going back for more. But even then you can still catch Covid and pass it on while fully vaccinated. But maybe you might have a slightly higher chance of experiencing milder symptoms, but only if you don't have a deadly bad reaction to the vaccine. Good luck to you.
  9. Don't they still sell it at Dildorias in Ajijic?
  10. I don't think you need a vpn to access youtube videos unless you are in China, Iran or other countries that restrict your freedom.
  11. Yeah I have heard about the yellow black widow before. In Chapala they have what they call the Capulina spider and the Viuda Negra. The way I understand the difference between the two is that the Capulina is larger. In Chapala they don't always have the perfect drawn hour glass. Often times it is just a red dot or no red dot at all. You have to go by their shape usually. They are pretty common around these parts in the summer. The good news is that generally they are not very agressive and avoid biting humans unless overly threatened. What other venemous spiders do we have in the Chapala area and do we also have Brown Recluse?
  12. I've always been told to be weary of buying medicine from Farmacía Similares because even though you might save money their recipes are not exactly the same as the original or even generics. So be careful.
  13. Isn't there a stone dealer next to the furniture tent which is next to Tobolandia?
  14. Not trying to be nitpicky but the correct word is basurero from the Spanish word for trash basura. And 500 pesos per truck sounds good. That is what we give.
  15. Why even try to look cute wearing a face mask? Nobody can see your face, its like wearing a niqab.
  16. The worst things about the face masks are having to see so many people wearing them and having to try to communicate with them through their muffled voices and lack of facial expressions. I am just glad I am in Chapala and not in some other world locations. Austria or Australia to name a few.
  17. I have seen couliflower rice at Superlake and once at Walmart. México is the land of meat. Just don't eat the tortillas. They do sell the low carb green cactus tostadas at Gourmet Garage. When we were doing keto we bought a lot of those and ate a lot of cheap avocados. Meat, eggs, bacon is cheap and plentiful around here. We even ordered monk fruit off Amazon. Not cheap but worth it. We also ate lots if greens like kale, swiss chard and spinach. Which are all very easy to grow in your back yard.
  18. The bone thing is mostly with small cooked bones like chicken and such that can easily splinter and caught in their throats or stomaches. As for avocados our 4 little doggies have been eating avocados off our avocado tree for the past 10 years without any notable problems.
  19. Mudgirl we are only human not perfect robots. Do you think humans can be compliant and perfect 24/7? Of course they can't and of course this virus will follow its course. So quit being mightier than thou, it is unbecoming of you.
  20. Mudgirl that is so not true. Even if everyone wore masks and followed the government mandated protocols the virus would still have been surging and mutating. Specially in poorer countries where populations tend to be less compliant. If you read the news about the omicron cases in the US almost all of the infected have been vaccinated people and many claim to be fervent mask wearers. So that just goes to disprove your theory. Sure, the majority of those omicron cases are not serious, as of yet. But it proves that Coronavirus can still mutate and infect people who wear masks and get vaccinated.
