  1. Actually the April 15 payment is postponed to July 15. But the second payment due June 15 is still due then.
  2. Second Teresa at O'Rourke. In the little strip mall just east of Black Coffee, across from Walmart. It is easy to look back in hindsight about how much $ one has paid in insurance. That misses the point entirely. Insurance is supposed to be a relatively small outlay to cover a potentially large covered claim. Auto insurance is a good example.
  3. I walk the malecon (Ajijic) daily. Not too many people. Easy to keep safe distance.
  4. Originated in China, hidden from the world for weeks, covered up, whatever. Yes, China Virus. People are entitled to their own opinions, not their own facts.
  5. Website shows (Galleria) open usual hours 10-8:30.
  6. Columbia Solidarity Bridge is only open 8am-Midnight. Others open 24hrs. Here is a nice website: https://bwt.cbp.gov/Viewallports.html?com=1&pas=1&ped=1&plist=0708,3004,0901,0115,0712,0209,3800,0212,0106,3604,0104,3023,0109,0704,0211,0701,3401,3802,3803,3009,3310,2502,5355,2503,2406,2302,2601,2303,2402,2404,l245,2305,2304,2602,2603,2604,2506,2403,2309,2307,2310,2608,2504,2408,2505,
  7. Is happyjillin staying home now?
  8. For those who have to send IRS estimated tax payments that usually begin April 15 are also postponed to July 15.
  9. It has dropped a bit this week. I had seen the almost $21 at the Ajijic Pemex earlier in the week.
  10. Regular gas is almost $21p/lt. That makes it US$3.32/gal. I heard a report that a KY gas station was .99/gal and sold out quickly.
  11. Maybe that is why the busses are still in operation, packed to the gills.
  12. Good heavens, the current recommended precautions are not front and center, nor included anywhere? Thanks 😊 Patti
  13. I am telling you otherwise, since you have not made it your business to stay informed on the latest information on a world wide pandemic. Everyone on the planet has been asked to minimize being around other people for 15 days-starting now. This will curb the spread. sigh. Patti
  14. There was a special segment on Fox News with 2 heads of large hospital systems in NYC and they said 88% of people with Covid-19 show symptoms from day 2-5. The 14 day quarantine is for people who have it and the 14 day number is how long it runs its course.
  15. MC, didn't someone write a book titled "Arguing With $%&/()s"?
  16. Dispute it with the credit card bank.
  17. What about the tolls going thru Aguas and Zacatecas?
  18. So is the burger better than Bruno's, which in my book is a very fine burger?
  19. Kind of surprising as it is an offshoot of Gosha's?? I ate here once and wasn't impressed.
  20. Schwab also rebates back the alien ATM charges at the end of each month. Thone alien fees range from $16p at CI Banco, $69 at HSBC (also decline the added exchange fee) and $83 at Bancomer. Also suggest talking to your bank and have them change the daily limit and also the transaction limit to the highest possible.
  21. Amazing number of questions, education, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, refrigerators, stoves, cars, on and on.
  22. What happened to night only paving? Bunch of morons to close down the intersection on a usual busy Friday afternoon with all the Guadalajara traffic.
  23. Ditto Eurofreeze. They are there in the afternoons. They are at their Guadalajara shop mornings.
  24. THE MEDIA’S FEAR VIRUS IS THE REAL DANGER NOT THE CORONAVIRUS Published March 3, 2020 | By Dr. Jack Wheeler I’d like to suggest considering the latest bulletin on Covid-19 from the New England Journal of Medicine: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMe2002387?query=RP Almost all deaths attributed to Covid-19 are quite elderly, in their 70s and 80s/90s and/or with compromised immune systems. There are no deaths reported among the young, i.e., under 15 years old. Another consideration. The genetic vector by which the virus infects the body is the ACE2 receptor gene that codes for an enzyme involved in constriction of the lungs. As in all genes, there are slightly different variations or “polymorphisms.” Turns out that ethnic Chinese have one producing more of the enzyme than any other ethnic group in the world. Further, smoking tobacco greatly accelerates the enzyme’s lung constriction. No people on the planet come close to Chinese men on how much they smoke cigarettes. Which is one main reason why thousands of Chinese have died and not elsewhere, and many more Chinese men than women. The same, albeit to a bit lesser degree, applies to South Koreans. Bottom line is: If you’re under 70 in good health, not Asian and don’t smoke, avoid being in an infected area and wash your hands if you are, you’re gonna live. Oh, and for your mental well-being, ignore the media and TV news. The media is far more dangerous than this latest flu virus. Its principal product is no longer news but fear-mongering crises. Franklin Roosevelt’s most famous quote, from his 1933 Inaugural Address, was: “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Today that translates to, “We have nothing to fear but the media’s fear-mongering.” We all need to vaccinate ourselves from the Media Fear Virus.
