  1. Read a couple of days ago that medical "experts" are still not sure if a person who gets the vaccine can still be a carrier of Covid and pass it to others even while not getting sick themselves. We have a long way to go before everything is sorted out. Perhaps a large group of friends who all have been vaccinated will resume their social gatherings and attract some who haven't been so we can learn the answer. Volunteers?
  2. Sorry, don't know this person but the same "MO" was, and maybe still is, being used in PV. Lots and lots of scammed supposed renters paid deposits and were met by the owners of these homes when they knocked and expected to see the rental agent. Buyer beware.
  3. Yeah, I got it. Apparently you failed to get it in my response. Should I PM you in advance next time?
  4. Perhaps using US roads as far as possible before crossing, just a thought.
  5. If anyone starves because they can't get into Walmart...their problems deserve a more professional analysis than can be obtained on this board.
  6. Done...effective Jan. 26 for all airline passengers, including citizens.
  7. Sigh...you used to be real good at Tech Talk.
  8. Many things about living in Mexico are "better" than NOB. Some things are not. It is what it is. Pay the extra or do without, a straight forward decision.
  9. As always...If you want to be a Mod, send your resume to the Admin.
  10. How certain do you want to be that there can be no problems? How much fear do you have of possibly missing the flight? That will go a long way determining how early you should get there. Good luck.
  11. A VERY nice person with a lovely family and extended family. RIP Richard.
  12. ...That Americans and Canadians are not as much alike as I had thought.
  13. It's much easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission.
  14. In Mexico, time and rubber are similar...each can expand or contract to fit the situation. Viva Mexico!
  15. If they said "Covid finished off this person who had 70% blockage of his coronary arteries and moderate growing prostate cancer" I would have no objection. Covid would obviously be the nail in the coffin. I do wonder how many similar cases there are that "flu" is the nail in the coffin. BTW, we take this very seriously and have not been voluntarily near anyone not in our household since this began and we always wear masks when shopping. I spent 12 days in the hospital in June so I had no choice but to be near nurses, doctors, etc. but every protocol was followed. I believe each person needs to
  16. The answer we got from several gays was simple: Gays don't care for lesbians. I have no idea if that is generally true but Chillin is right, gays outnumber lesbians 20:1 in PV. For many years Blue Chairs Resort was the number one destination for Pacific Coast gay men. It's still there, looking a little down in the heels but still attracts a large crowd to their beach club and for nighttime entertainment on the rooftop of the hotel. We lived in the next building south for 4 years until the noise just got too much so we sold and moved further up and inland.
  17. That pesky 10th Amendment...it confounds many who think they are wiser than the "common man". "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
  18. One of the things I noticed living both in Ajijic and PV is that most of the Mexicans I knew did not bother with "Nuevo" for New Year's. So much for proper grammar.
  19. There's a nice hotel in Mayto, oceanfront with a nice pool. The ocean looks kinda rough for swimming, much like that at the Pink Posada in Manzanillo. A bit further south is Tejua, with a beautiful cove, smaller waves and a restaurant up on the hill to the north with a killer view of everything and fresh seafood. Until just a few years ago the road from El Tuito was dirt and not passable sometimes but is now paved. There used to be one bus a day from ET that went down there, don't know if there still is. Probably gonna be super developed if it hasn't been yet.
  20. Except for the raicilla I didn't get much vibe from that place.
  21. Eastern Oregon also has a short open season. Most years you have to be lucky and draw a tag. Too many bar owners going out and decimating the population. There's one in most Eastern Oregon bars in case you want a closer look.
  22. Some businesses don't care for the idea that the customer can dispute the charge on a US card and hold the money transfer. Especially prevalent in tourist areas like PV where some restaurant patrons get liquored up, run up huge tabs, and when they get home decide to say the restaurant inflated the charge and they didn't notice it. They can usually win but the hassle of responding and fighting with the CC company has just turned some off. Shouldn't be an issue in Lake Chapala but since each store can make their own rules, perhaps it has been.
