  1. Estrellas I hope you are not suggesting that anybody that does not go out and get the vaccine is probably going to die from Covid, seriously is that what you are trying to say. Roughly 50% of Americans are not planning on getting the vaccine anytime soon. So, you really think half of Americans will soon be dead from Covid. I hope I am misinterpreting your statement.
  2. Mudgirl, I was referring to them testing positive but it was really a false positive. Just like thousands of Americans have tested positive for Covid when in fact they were actually really negative. And the opposite is also true. But yes I see what you mean by testing positive for the antibodies vs testing positive for the disease itself. And I neither want to be a guinea pig.
  3. Mudgirl, I never ever made any ridiculous claim that the vaccine was giving people HIV. I'm just saying that these reasons among many many others are why lots people would prefer to wait awhile before being jabbed with a new vaccine that does NOT have years of testing to back it up. And Gringohombre suggests that this vaccine is worth the elimination of this scourge to mankind. Who is claiming that the vaccine will eliminate Covid-19 from planet Earth? Certainly not Dr. Fauci. Most scientists actually believe that Covid is here to stay. It will just keep mutating every couple of months similarly to the way the common flu already does.
  4. RickS, I guess we will know the answer to that in the next few months.
  5. Yeah, its a new scary world we are all moving into.
  6. Upfront, I pointed out that it gave false positives, but that is kind of scary, don't ya think?
  7. Of course MtnMama, and in my first post I think I made it perfectlly clear that it was a Covid vaccine made locally in Australia. But can you imagine a country the size and as rich as Australia can make mistakes with their vaccine, the USA and Europe most certainly can too. Every day I read about new evidence that if you have such and such ailment you should not take the vaccine or if you take such and such medicines then you should not take it. The vaccine is spanking new it has not even been around for 7 months yet. Lots of people have already had severe allergic reactions to it. A vaccine for a virus that has a 98 to 99% survival rate, it sounds like this brand new vaccine may possibly be riskier than getting the virus itself. Everybody has to make their own decisons regarding their own safety and what risks they feel safe taking and they must decide whether they can or should blindly trust the government to be honest with them to keep them safe. I for one will wait a few years before taking any novel vaccine. I'm just saying......
  8. Please do not visit Chapala Centro or our malecón, I am afraid you would probably have a nervous breakdown followed by or preceeded by panic attacks.
  9. Re read my post, I pointed that out already so people couldn't accuse me later of misleading. But still would you be in line to get that Covid vaccine if people were later testing positive for HIV, be it only false positives or not? Sounds like the vaccine in some places can be scarier than the disease.
  10. Does everybody realize that the government vaccination program in Australia has been stopped due to people that got vaccinated later showing up testing positive for HIV. So many people that got vaccinated later tested positive for HIV that the government put an immediate stop to the vaccine. I realize the Australian government says the vaccine was locally made and has claimed that it only shows false positives......but still....who wants to take a Covid vaccine if you later test positive for HIV. Guys, none of these vaccines have been properly tested for sufficient years to prove that they are safe. Only get it if you trust the government beyond a shadow of a doubt. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-australia-55269381
  11. Número just means your house or building number. Número int or interior means if you live in an appt, condo, or duplex. Colonia is your immediate neighborhood. Just remember that Mexican addresses are not always as clear cut and precise as what you might be used to North of the Border. But as long as you get your city, state, street and house number correct most senior mailmen will be able to find you.
  12. I am not sure why so many people are assuming that this person is a troll. I think he or she is asking legitimate questions on how to properly fill out the address section of any Mexican online shopping site. Sometimes I think the people on this form are just all old and grumpy and have absolutely no patience for newbies. You guys are the reason why this forum and all forums are dying. Why would any serious troll have questions like these?
  13. I almost forgot about Nestle's but yet again all they make is vanilla, cookies-n- cream and neopolitan. 😴
  14. Does anybody know why Holanda brand has zero imagination? All they make is Neopolitan, Cookies-n-Cream and Vanilla. That is basically all you see in México, and God forbid, don't ever try the off brands. From time to time you will see Sealtest ice cream at Soriana with flavors like cookie dough and reeses cup ice cream among other exciting flavors. But never at Wal-Mart.
  15. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-12-13/unwelcome-in-other-countries-and-amid-lockdowns-at-home-americans-are-flocking-to-mexico%3f_amp=true Apparently mostly Americans are still coming down but not so many Canadians according to this article.
  16. The OP has not mentioned anything that comes close to conspiracy theories. Yes, maybe if he or she had posted this a year ago or so, and said this is how 2020 would turn out, you could call it a conspiracy theory. But he or she is just bringing up the things that are being discussed daily in our main stream media. Like it not, its the crazy world we live in today.
  17. It was only closed for 2 weekends back in November. When the Mexican black friday or Buen Fin started everything miraculously opened back up. Economic needs trump any virus prevention measures.
  18. Upfront is definitely the nastiest and most agressive member on this forum. Calling people turds just because he doesn't agree with them is never cool. He's the one that needs putting in his place.
  19. Daisy, I seriously have no idea where you got 40 deaths. The official death count from the government is showing 18 as of today, a couple days ago it showed 15. And that is for 12 months. Remember it is widely believed that Covid was around since the middle of December of last year.
  20. Zeb, just remember that the Municipio de Chapala has experienced about 14 deaths from Covid in the past 12 months. Things are getting pretty scary and dangerous. You should probably not even leave your house this season. And if you read this you should probably even disenfect your computer screen to be extra safe. Its a scary world we all live in now.
  21. Abraham does house calls in Chapala and he also speaks really good English. You can reach him at 3314877497. Or just send him a whatsapp message.
  22. I never realized that tipping a gas station attendant 10 pesos which equates to roughly US .50 cents was too much to tip a guy that pumps your gas. Those guys, believe it or not are working for tips. And yes, most Mexicans tip them also.
  23. 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.
  24. 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 mutation comes out then you will be at risk again. The best scenerio is that it either disappears or that we just learn to live with it just like we do with the Common Flu. People at risk should be responsible for protecting themselves and the rest of the world should be left to continue on as normal.
  25. 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.
