  1. Here is an interesting article that came out today.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/6-ft-social-distancing-rule-exposure-indoors-2021-4

    So many of the things that the top scientists and the WHO and the CDC have been saying changes daily and weekly.  Apparently, now they are saying that 6 feet appart indoors does nothing to stop the spread of Covid.  All those rediculous lines we have been standing in all this time has been an utter waste of time.  And preventing children and old people from entering into stores was a total disgrace that helped no one.

  2. And Mudgirl I wasn't explaining to you the nature of cicadas, I was explaining the behavior and maybe some local lore about the cicadas here at Lake Chapala.  Because back home in North Carolina our local cicadas were never thought of as calling for or predicting the rains, they tended to squelch all freaking summer, unlike here.

  3. It is just a cutesy term that we Lakesiders have adopted, because here they seem slightly different than the ones NOB that tend to scream all summer.  You don't even live here why would it bother you if many expats choose to call them by a term that is known only to Lake Chapala?

  4. Mudgirl, rainbirds is just a term that expats on Lake Chapala use to refer to cicadas since they seem to call weeks before the rainy season. As if beackoning the arrival of the summer rains.  And as the rains begin they mostly go silent till the following season.  The locals in Spanish just call them cigarras.  They laugh when I tell them that many gringos in Chapala refer to them as los pájaros de lluvia.

  5. I believe it is the health department going around checking for potential dengue problems.  A lady just came by my place and offered to come in and inspect my property as a free service and I told her no thank you that we were fine and she wrote something on chalk on my door to tell others from her dept that she had made contact with us.

    What an unbelievably heartless attitude. Yeah, 1 person in 100 dying from an infectious disease is such a nothing burger, huh?

    And BTW the death rate in Mexico is almost 10%, not 1%. That's 1 out of every 10 people, in case you're math challenged.

    Mudgirl I am not the math challenged one, thats you.  .1 is 1 in a 1000 dead not 1 in a hundred like you claim.  And then later you claim 1 out of 10 Mexicans are dying from Covid.  Is the coastal heat starting to get to you?
