  1. From New Mexico a really big "political" issue. Definitely agree with this one, experienced it first hand there.
  2. That describes my experience with him. Definitely recommend and it was a D35 Martin I had him working on. He also suggested changing the weight of strings I was using and that has worked well.
  3. I've heard tell there are a number of wandering old goats around lakeside but never a young one. 🤣
  4. Have incoming family friend would like to take her on a visit.
  5. And of course the people who are constantly attempting to insert U.S. politics into threads here have no prejudices. LOL
  6. I had him do some work on my guitar. Did a good job. Nice guy and nice shop. About 2 blocks west of the SA Plaza on Ramon Corona. Best to use his FB page to set up appointment, he is not always open.
  7. Good read along these lines here. I have to say I agree with almost all of it. https://www.smartertravel.com/real-reason-fliers-hate-airlines/
  8. What makes me nervous about all these places is their staying power. Imagine living in one of them for some years, being really infirm, and waking up one day to find out you have to find another place.
  9. I'm wondering how long it will be before Volaris has an extra charge for using the head while in flight. IMO they've become a poster child for everything that is wrong about flying these days. And they have a lot of competition for that distinction.
  10. To unhijack the thread: https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/coronavirus/will-there-be-a-southward-migration-this-year/
  11. The U.S. sends much more water to Mexico than vice versa. Climate change has nothing to do with it. Droughts are endemic to the American SW and northern Mexico and among other things caused the predecessors to the Aztecs to move south and the cliff dwellers of Mexico to move down to the few water sources that remained running during said droughts. As that area appears to be entering another drought this conflict is going to escalate. Bear in mind because considerably more water is provided to Mexico than vice versa the withholding of the latter is a no win game for Mexico. We no

  13. https://news.yahoo.com/mexico-poised-become-biggest-legal-080010096.html Should make some of the local aged hippies happy. But what will be the impact on the young?
  14. As you can see from the data, not so easy to get it from two of those. Restaurants? You bet. We are sticking with take out
  15. Some apparently do, the dance bar across the street has reopened after already having at least one case of covid. I would suggest avoiding anyone who goes to bars for the duration. As you say, just common sense.
  16. Samsung Mexico has this deal: https://www.samsungonlinemx.com/?fbclid=IwAR2-w--VvX-wB6TvCIJrgXvXxe3kSmX1w3vS8ESxHVZguEY6nVK_wNjl824 Reviews show this to be a competent TV that is best in rooms that are not too bright. They will deliver it to you. Dan Houck
  17. Check this out: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/pdfs/mm6936a5-H.pdf Note the summary on the next to last page and what it says about restaurants and masks. And the chart showing where the greatest hazards are. Glad I have a private alternative and haven't returned to my gym. There's a very graphic depiction of hazards on the page before the summary. Bars are even worse.
  18. We've never had anything other than a good meal, and excellent value, at Cocinart. My only gripe with them is you can't get french fries with their excellent burger. I wish they'd offer the option of potato chips as the diced sauteed potatoes they serve are good but not with a traditional burger.
  19. TelMex is "stuttering" quite regularly these days. Pretty clear they don't have the bandwidth to meet the demand. And they aren't doing anything about it either. All of the local providers suck IMO. The contrast with the service our college students receive in GDL, for less money, is stunning.
  20. The unnecessary introduction of one sided views of U.S. politics notwithstanding Pete, I would agree your wait for the vaccine is probably going to be significantly longer than you anticipate. And as I have noted, I'd think carefully whether or not I would want to be an early user of whatever they come up with. Crash programs tend to have not so good crashes as you know. Just as we older folks are more vulnerable to serious side effects from covid I would expect the same would be true with any vaccine for it. And regardless of what happens in the U.S., the vaccine programs and int
  21. I have found for relatively easy things like this and even not so easy I can usually find a UTube video showing me exactly how to do it. For example:
