  1. Don't they also farm these fish in Mexico?
  2. Isn't that place in San Juan Cosala? I'd like to also check and see if they have some that would match some of my old ones. Can't remember where it is at but I think someone has posted here about it in the distant past.
  3. "could" does not equal "did." The former is speculation, the latter is history. The reference I cited states the scientists do not have an explanation for the drop. It lists several possibilities. Commerce equals lives for those not privileged like so many here to have independent incomes.
  4. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-why-the-number-of-covid-19-cases-is-dropping-globally/
  5. For some the glass is always half empty. https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20210210/rate-of-covid-cases-and-death-declining-worldwide
  6. It still can happen. Problem is gas shortage for power generation.
  7. Nearly $5 to go from Chapala highway to Lopez Mateos? Nope not worth it particularly now the carretera has been so much improved. Not to mention getting onto it when heading north requires that insane retorno and taking your life into your own hands. Amazing this uber pricey road couldn't provide a proper junction with Chapala highway.
  8. In the northern hemisphere don't varmints normally migrate NORTH if it is too warm? Do wolverines like to jump from the frying pan into the fire?
  9. That illegal restriction was removed as of Saturday. Someone needs to clue these folks in.
  10. Headed to Playa Grande Resort over spring break and looking for recommendations for fishing charters in Melaque, which is the closest place. Would be three adults total wanting a half day excursion. Any recommendations? Tried one in Manzanillo a few years back, not very satisfactory.
  11. Friend who lives near Fort Worth says temps above freezing not expected until Sunday or Monday. Are we the lucky ones or what?
  12. Well not a false alarm in general, it was officially announced and implemented, just not here. https://www.informador.mx/jalisco/Apagon-afecta-al-menos-a-43-municipios-de-Jalisco-20210217-0002.html
  13. I intend to ask them to extend my membership for the month they refused to honor it.
  14. I think you miss the point about how fact is often determined. As is endangerment. I think people who seek to force their "facts" on others are a danger to civilization. I always like to remember the Galileo story where the flat earth "fact" believers suppressed dissenting views. Real science never thinks it has all the answers and supports strong discussion and dissent. Politicized science which is what much of the covid scene is based on, seeks to suppress alternative views and investigations. And dictation of "fact" and suppression of dissent is core to fascism. Let's lea
  15. True, only 22 percent though another source says 24 percent. When you lose even 10 percent in a situation where every kWh is needed, you have to resort to rolling blackouts as is the case in Texas. The experience in Germany with these things freezing up even worse than Texas really calls into question their reliability in critical situations. Short of being blown away in hurricanes or tornadoes the gas turbines are going to function with high reliability. We have a generator for backul that can run our water system and refrigerator. Power here used to be considerably less re
  16. Didn't realize you followed them. Not your style. Mine either. Nope, here's just one of many sources reporting this: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/frozen-wind-turbines-texas-power-outages-b1802596.html You can wipe the egg off your face now.
  17. I did. It is an op ed advocating thought and opinion control If the elite or oligarchy or some majority they have swayed with propaganda decide your beliefs don't fit their narrative, out you go. Sad. Sad that after several hundred years so many are ready to throw away the freedoms that made western civilization so successful over a "pandemic" that in historical terms is hardly apocalypic. Fortunate there are still many who do not agree with this tyranny. And it most definitely is fascism. Here's always the trap--sooner or later someone or some group comes along who decides
  18. Yep. https://www.informador.mx/jalisco/Apagon-en-Jalisco-anuncian-cortes-aleatorios-de-energia-en-12-entidades-20210216-0060.html Big reason is a bunch of those windmills froze up solid in Texas. Also from the Informador: Man, we got off light here.
  19. And just who determines that? Oh, the "experts." At least the experts in favor. Fascism anyone? Sad.
  20. Sorry there is nothing in my post that says any of that. What I am trying to get across is the reality of where we live. Mexico is NOT going to handle covid in a first world manner. Mexicans DO NOT by and large follow the precautions you would like them to. The asymptomatic carriers ARE NOT going to be discovered here by massive testing and tracking. The vaccination program is going to be very slow. The Mexican implementation of lockdowns has been largely unsuccessful except in the massive economic damage and expansion of poverty it has caused. They've only served to delay the day o
  21. So without massive testing, that is unlikely to happen in Mexico, there is little likelihood of determining who carries covid. Overall, there is little tracing here. Get used to the idea it is going to run its course in Mexico. If one can't handle that reality they have the choice of either locking themselves down near totally here or going somewhere where testing and tracing is far more common than Mexico. And it will take many months before a large part of the population is inoculated here.
  22. And just how would you know they are infected? A covid test with a very high error rate? How many seemingly healthy people are actually being tested, particularly here in Mexico?
