  1. As the title says, would like an upholstery guy to come and make four arm covers for chair and couch out of brown suede leather.
  2. By using farm workers as a primary example of what undocumented people do Mudgirl, not you, was suggesting just that. I was simply clarifying your comment not arguing with it. If only about 3 percent of the group is engaged in agricultural field work that is not a representative example of what the group does. Using that as an example is an example of the logical fallacy, "Appeal to emotion." Pew has published a detailed report on this topic. It is a little dated but should not have changed much as over the last four years, until now, illegal immigration into the U.S. was declining.
  3. That is one half of the agricultural work force, not one half of the illegal immigrant population. Very big difference and the reference does make it clear. Bottom line, most illegals don't work in agriculture. If one uses the more general figure of 20 million "undocumented" the agricultural workers are less than 3 percent of the total. Hence characterizing this group as heavily employed in agriculture is misleading, to put it mildly. I don't blame the folks for taking advantage of this situation at all. Given their continued poor prospects in Mexico they are behaving in an economica
  4. Did you take a picture of how they were doing this? Hard for me to see how this can be done without being obvious.
  5. Someone needs to do their homework: https://www.agriculture.com/farm-management/business-planning/undocumented-farm-labor-small-portion-of-illegal-immigrants
  6. Denmark has dropped the Astra Zeneca vaccine amid reports of blood clots. The good news just keeps rolling in.
  7. Also, a service that provides the people so we don't have to deal with the personnel issues directly is definitely an option. Any suggestions along those lines?
  8. Looks like my inbox was full and I didn't get it. Sorry about that, please resend. PM system is a bit glitchy this morning too.
  9. Are you in Guadalajara or Lakeside? Good expats group for Guadalajara on Facebook.
  10. I put stuff like this out on the curb, always gone within a few hours.
  11. And also if you don't mind, recommendations for Mexican attorney in Ajijic who can handle terminations of two part time gardeners. Among other things we want to have only ONE gardener going forward.
  12. We will need someone for about 12 hours per week, preferably two days. They need to be familiar with more complex landscaping, sprinklers and lawn/grass maintenance. Thanks.
  13. And I won't spare you from how I feel about those who are easily stampeded and so unjustifiably self righteous about same. Good luck to you and I hope you won't need it. Let's leave it at that.
  14. I don't. In the first place this so called "vaccine" is coming from a country with a record of lack of transparency and deceit and indeed caused this whole thing to begin with and made it worse by covering up for months. What will we learn next about it? I can't imagine why anyone would want to take any of these vaccines as the bad news continues to pile up. The Moderna version is linked to fatal thrombosis. The latest from Israel is the Pfizer vaccine appears to make one MORE vulnerable to the South African variant of the disease. The J&J shots have now been suspended in multip
  15. Our lawns need a boost and have weed issues. This looks very much like St. Augustine grass. In the U.S. I got "turf builder" fertilizer, is there a Mexican equivalent and where to buy locally if any? Is there any seed for it available locally? Thanks
  16. Exactly the same problem I had with a Calorex heater even with flue dampener. Gas consumption cut by more than half by changing this to on demand. However on demand units do require annual maintenance and that is a cost too.
  17. Is that the latest label? Don't tell me y'all have given up on racist.
  18. Maybe just guilty of pointing out the obvious. As for your comment, no, I just put myself outside of same, quite willingly and happily. Outside of same is a much bigger place.
  19. I guarantee if I had posted anything like that the people of a certain ideological persuasion around here including you would be all over me.
  20. Well he'll have to work a bit to top this.
  21. They do it early in the mornings on the weekends around here. Apparently the bomberos can't write them up for it and they know there are no government enforcers around early and on weekends. Have one up the hill from me who does it every Saturday 7AM regular as clock work.
  22. The place has strict occupancy limits and they enforce them.
