  1. Gracias, do they have a significant number of used pianos?
  2. Gracias, do they have a significant number of used pianos?
  3. Can anyone recommend an acoustic piano store in Guad for used pianos?
  4. I believe Omeprazole is taken to counter acid reflux/indigestion which affects the esophagus internally. Shatzki´s Ring is external to the esophagus. So I´m not sure if Omeprazole would affect Shatzki´s ring. But I certainly do not have a complete understanding of the two situations. Do you have information that would shed a light on this from what your doctor has told you?
  5. How is it taking that every day? Do you experience any bad side effects?
  6. Thank you, Andy, that was my question: fiber specifically in the town of Chapala, not the Chapala area. Oh well, I seem to have lost control of this one and people are having a nice discussion. Lesson learned.
  7. Anyone in Chapala proper (not Riberas) have fiber optics internet service? What internet speed are you getting? Problems with service? Cost? Thanks.
  8. I see a lot of cable going up. Is fiber in Chapala now? Or is it coming soon?
  9. Most or all of the flocks of "big black birds" near the lake in Chapala municipality are Crested Caracaras. These have white wing tips. Black vultures do not. Caracaras are nesting in La Floresta in the eucalypts.
  10. I`m looking for an old acoustic (upright) piano. Just needs to work, I don`t care how it looks. The soundboard needs to be intact and the hammers, etc have to all exist, however.
  11. I need old blue jeans. The older and more faded and worn the better. Unwearable? Fantastic! These are for a rag rug. Your old duds will live on! Thank you!
  12. According to the Reporter June 4 there are 2 cases in the town of Chapala. According to many reports including the office of Hector Espana, Expat Liaison, there are a total of 11 cases spread throughout the municipality.
  13. No, never did. I went to the medical supply place just north of the main part of Ajijic where everyone said to go but they didn`t have it. I was going to use it for home gym purposes, bought some from Mercado Libre which never came (from China) then found bicycle inner tubing and have used that to contruct my home gym. Thanks for asking!
  14. The will only take what they can sell easily - aluminum and other metals and plastic bottles. No glass. I believe no cardboard but will check.
  15. The case of the doctor in the Reporter article case was not confirmed. She tested negative twice. It was a man that she said she contracted the virus from. He left immediately for the States. All the doctor`s patients were tested and none were positive.
  16. I don`t see the link.... Otherwise: Bjorn Olsen, a professor of infectious medicine at Uppsala University (in Sweden), told Reuters, "I think herd immunity is a long way off, if we ever reach it." Business Insider, May 22: Sweden's Public Health Agency last week released the initial findings of an ongoing antibodies study that showed that only 7.3% of people in Stockholm had developed antibodies against COVID-19 by late April. Herd immunity requires at least 60% to 70% of people to achieve immunity. May 14: With 39.26 deaths per 100,000, Sweden's mortality rate is higher than that of the U.S. (29.87 deaths per 100,000) and exponentially higher than those of its neighbors Norway (4.42 per 100,000) and Finland (5.56 per 100,000). As far as I know, Sweden is the only country that is trying "herd immunity".
  17. So far, herd immunity (spelled without the "a") has been tried without success. It was tried in Sweden recently, without success.
  18. It is called science. Do you recognize the word? S - C- I- E -N- C- E. Look it up, you may find it illuminating. Or not. Sadly, by your posts, I would guess most likely not. Or, of course, you may be one of the most decidedly not illuminated folk who is trying to claw their way back to a time before science. Good luck with that. Once out of the box and all that.
  19. From the New York Times science section (link below): The soap dissolves the oily membrane of the virus. This is the layer that, when combining with the oily membrane of a cell, allows the virus to work its way inside a cell. Once there, it releases its RNA coding and away we go. It is not that the soap "attacks" a virus so that the virus does not survive. It is, indeed, not alive. It is simply rendered unfunctional. Here is a great but simple explanation of how Covid-19 works: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/03/11/science/how-coronavirus-hijacks-your-cells.html?auth=login-google1tap&login=google1tap This is a later understanding of how covid works with the cell`s structure, from MIT: https://www.technologyreview.com/2020/04/15/999476/explainer-how-does-the-coronavirus-work/
  20. No "reported" cases. This may be because there has been almost no testing. Best to be safe.
  21. All information, including from SSA itself, says that won`t happen until 2035. Then it will go to a 21% reduction of SSA benefits. Unless the 68 million who receive SSA monthly checks have something to say about it.
