  1. Sapote and persimmon are in the genus Diospyros, family Ebenaceae. They are not related to avocados which are in the family Lauraceae.
  2. No, black sapote is not a form of persimmon. They are 2 very different plants and 2 different species in the same genus. As the potato and eggplant are 2 species in the Solanum genus. The potato is not a form of the eggplant.
  3. https://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/ : Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.
  4. This three-afternoon workshop will cover everything needed to make paper from discarded paper scraps, banana leaves, flowers and other natural materials. With the paper you make, you’ll be crafting your own paper for drawing, painting, and note cards. We’ll make boxes and bookmarks. We’ll also be adding color to paper with pigments. Monday March 25th, Wednesday March 27th and Friday March 29th, 2019, 2pm - 5pm The class will beheld at a private residence in Chapala. The instructor, Brad Mowers, is a fiber craftsman with 30 years of experience . He has been making his own paper and teaching the craft to children and adults for several years. $600 p per person. ($300 p deposit required). Send me a PM if you are interested.
  5. There`s only a very few, the same ones every time, that spout up this way on certain topics.
  6. Brave man, Kyle, for broaching the subject. You won`t get an answer to your question but all the neanderthals will come out of their caves swinging their clubs!
  7. Alan, "labor laws ...include IMSS payments as an employer" Is this only for full time work? By law, is all of what you have said above for full time workers only? Everything else is discretion by employer?
  8. Perros de agua are black-capped night herons, the largest white water birds are great egrets. They usually nest together.
  9. I searched the Home Depot Guad sites and found no Baston de pino solido or molduras madera duro or palo de madera (how they`re usually called here). Do you remember which HD you searched?
  10. Good digging! I looked but couldn`t find anything.
  11. Yes, apparently the only places dog owners are strongly being asked by the "tourist inspectors" to leash their dogs (no tickets being issued yet) are on the Chapala and Ajijic malecons. But perhaps officials regulating the park can be persuaded to post a sign and the ticket taker can be persuaded to gently admonish dog owners to leash their dogs for safety to other park users. Not sure if at this point, more can be done legally or administratively.
  12. Apparently, Christiana park administrators allow dogs offleash in the park. I will be advocating in Chapala government to change this but it will be helpful if people who come into the park will simply say to the person who takes the admission (there is no other person of authority in the park on a daily basis) to please not allow dogs offleash in the park. Maybe this will filter up the authority chain. " Por favor no permita perros sin correa en el parque. Es peligroso. Gracias."
  13. The bending of the jet stream has caused warmer weather in the west and colder weather (the polar vortex) in the midwest. This bending is thought to have been caused by the warming of the Pacific over the last few decades by climate change.
  14. For the faint of mind, global warming is tricky.
