  1. Naw. It's okay, Rick. I'm good. I'm figuring out what media is censoring the news. Making a list for myself. So I don't get misled. To be thorough, I'm starting at the bottom. Paint chips. Maybe oil paints. Edit: Bad choice to start. Too granular. A bit boring. But cleared as misleading media to my satisfaction. Well, I wasn't mislead, YMMV. I'm done with the vetting of media though. My bad. I don't have the patience. I'll just blunder around, evaluating media as it pops up.
  2. MC, seriously? "Americans and Europeans have had enough of this failed policy". Lots of polls available when you google. This one 87% of Americans support stay at home. I could have chose from 3 others with the same results. There is a tiny minority of protesters in the US. Certain political interests and media are trying to make them look mainstream. Not even close. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jackbrewster/2020/04/22/americans-overwhelmingly-support-stay-at-home-restrictions-new-poll-finds/#3cdd78762e12
  3. I do understand that the world is trying to grapple with these questions. The lock down is not endless. Authorities everywhere are trying to save lives based on the best information they can get at the moment. https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-lockdowns-successful-evidence-from-around-the-world-2020-4?r=MX&IR=T
  4. This is good, balanced info to add to Ian's point. It was complied by researchers. They add cardio as part of prep also, so your entire system is stronger, better able to fight for you. https://necsi.edu/respiratory-health-for-better-covid-19-outcomes
  5. Two doctors with sketchy data aren't equal to the other side of the question. This goes through the data, from a left position given the source. https://www.alternet.org/2020/04/a-pair-of-doctors-just-proved-that-medical-training-doesnt-keep-you-from-being-amazingly-ignorant/ The issue has been politicized based on its nature. Also it is being discussed as such here. I thought politics where verboten on this board. Why the exception for this issue?
  6. Chris Hayes on MSNBC spent a segment on these guys tonight (Tuesday). He had epidemiologists on who did refute their position and questioned their integrity. The show will repeat tonight if anyone is interested.
  7. It sounds crazy to expats, living here as senor singles or in couples. It might not be a hardship at all for large extended Mexican families. All the basic supply issues would generally be easily handled by the younger generations.
  8. What a great find, Ferret. I recognized his name and logo from the "Moving Art" series on Netflix. It is this wonderful cinematography, mostly or all landscapes and he matches it with different musicians and types of music. There is no spoken word, so it's not this type of meditation, but beautiful and calming.
  9. Superlake has also tucked away reasonably priced breakfast cereals. The 200p imports are where they always were. Lower priced Mexican brands are at the end of the aisle and where the cheaper cookies used to be in the corner.
  10. The silver lining: If we die of a contagious illness, we won't be in good health. We might be dead, but our train of logic will be impeccable.
  11. Could you be some specific? What is the problem or issue? That's a pretty broad condemnation. I'm not putting you down. I'm personally interested in the answer.
  12. You're going to have trouble figuring out the speed from Telmex in that area. I had 3 mbps for ages and got bumped to 20 tops. The clerk at Telmex said she lived a few blocks from me, presumably was on the same server and couldn't get the increase. Also she couldn't get an explanation that satisfied her on why. Based on people posting on this forum, I know what some other people are still stuck at 3mbps. (Which is unstable on weekends and evenings when people are streaming. I used to call it hiccuping disconnects) Start by taking the exact address where you plan to move to Telmex and see if they can give you information.
  13. Yeah. It's a crap shoot. When Ilox first made their offer, I had 3 mbps from Telmex. That's not enough for streaming internet content. Barely enough for online games. I got constant disconnects on weekends. Out of desperation tried Telecable also. That was a bust, because... Telecable. So that summer after Ilox took contracts, Telmex suddenly offered some parts of SAT faster service. Some parts. People a few blocks apart are getting different speeds, that old 3 mbps. But I finally got lucky and got 10 and then 20 mbps. I'm sure these better speeds were forced by Ilox's entry into the market. Now, if I still had 3 mbps, I'd be keeping that Ilox contract and put a lot of energy into working with them. So I'm dragging on Ilox a bit now, because I can afford to speedwise, but I am eternally grateful to Tom for working with them and bringing them into the area. It made a huge impact on the quality of my internet service.
  14. I paid in cash also. I was told I'd receive a check in 2-3 weeks. They said they'd call when it was ready. Then they took my telephone number when I asked if they had it. 😂 Ah, yes.
  15. Shouldn't the person who thought the green tire was a doughnut get a special forum award? Cause that was a golden moment. I'm voting 10/10.
  16. I sent you an email. There are bad words and tear stains. But I met Pete for the first time so the day was a win. 😉
  17. Well, I was in front of Pete at the Ilox office and was told there would be no installations in 3-5 months. I had an 22 month old contract in my hand from being an early adopter in the signup for service. We asked the question several ways to make sure there was no mistake in her message. I also asked if it was okay to tell anyone I met that there would be no new installations for 3 - 5 months. I was trying to make sure that her message wasn't just for me for whatever reason that might have been. Actually I was thinking of this board. She said yes, tell everyone. As a result I cancelled my contact with the year advance payment and will receive a refund. If you want to make up a story that this isn't true, I suggest you check with Ilox first. Edit: On second thought, the story about the equipment being delayed at the border, that I'm not defending. You can tell stories about that to your heart's content.
  18. El Doc is a large, well known eventos in SAT, at La Paz and Priv La Paz. The noise used to be intolerable music and cohetes until 2 am on weekends. etc. The locals took up a petition which apparently half the town signed from what I saw. The noise is much better now. Cohetes usually finish before 10 or 11 and they aren't as loud and long as they used to be. Usually. And never the all night sessions that we used to have. So noise abatement is possible. https://www.facebook.com/eldocterrazadeeventos
  19. Dee closed her kennel and retired. She didn't sell it. Second Carlos as an excellent trainer. I'm looking forward to seeing his new kennel, haven't been yet.
  20. San Antonio was quieter this year for the June festival. The story was that Chapala had run out of money for cohetes, so they were fewer. It would be too much to hope that the condition lasts for a while.
  21. Try washing with a vinegar water solution. It won't take all the smell out, but it's better than only soap and water. Nature's Miracle is the brand name of the enzyme that's suppose to neutralize dog urine. I haven't had luck with it either. We use Odoban which used to be available at Sam's. I don't know if they still carry it. It's hospital strength disinfectant and order control. Since you have porous tile, you've got a tough problem, but these are the things I'd use.
  22. Totally agree with Ferret. A vet knowledgeable about nutrition and your dog's needs is your best bet. If you don't want to feed Virbac, Hector will give you other options. I also recommend Hector for this issue. Getting opinions on this forum would be as wild as googling "dog food reviews". Which I DON"T recommend. 😀
