    That story says, "

    Vita Deyun is the first Mexican treatment that has undergone rigorous laboratory tests, but has also proven its effectiveness in more than 7,500 people.

    Mexican doctors performed numerous in-vitro tests on patients and health personnel to verify the effectiveness of the supplement..."

    In-vitro test are only test tube tests, so how could it be effective on people when they are not tested in-vivo?

    Translation error maybe?  Doesn't fit the context of the entire paragraph.  Looking at the last paragraph I'd wager PVDN didn't actually make this report first hand but rather as they usually do reported on Spanish language sources.

    In any case, the article cites names and events and is a great deal more specific than the one claiming it is a fraud.

    Draw your own conclusions.


  2. I was telling our friends here in Albuquerque last night of all the cars we've owned, the two Honda CRVs were by far the most useful and reliable.  We hope the Acura RDX we got just before coming up here will be the same.  Honda motorcycles also are highly reliable.

  3. I can't believe I missed all the fun and back biting here.  That's what I get for going on an RV trip.

    This place looks great, minus the flies.  There's another place in that area we haven't returned to because of flies from nearby horses.  Hope this one doesn't have the same problem.

    For 2020, the ISR withholding rate will be 1.45%. In recent years, this tax has been increasing. In 2017, the rate was 0.46%; in 2018, 1.04%. According to lawmakers, the increase is due to average returns on public and private instruments and inflation. Dec. 18. 2019."

    The new government increased the withholding rate on bank earned interest from .46 percent to 1.45 percent in 12 months. Withholding 41 percent or more seems odd. There might be a reason. If you find out let us know why this is happening, please.

    They are withholding the 1.45 percent on my wife's accounts she said. She files every year and gets money back from various taxes she pays including income taxes on rentals we pay every 3 months at any bank along with the 16 percent IVA on the commercial rentals.

    Maybe I should be filing a Mexican tax return to get some of this rather high tax back.  Can anyone recommend a local English speaking Mexican tax guy who I could discuss this with?

    Thank you!

    They dug up (about 1/2 meter deep) the western section of it several years ago and put a gravel foundation down (which was hell to drive on) and then repaved it. That same section is the worst part right now. Also the material they sprayed on the slopes above this highway to prevent erosion is failing.

    When you build on deep fill the foundation work has to go much deeper.

    Due to over loaded  trucks, the Jocotepec bypass is breaking up in the section nearest the Guadalajara highway. The ruts can be dangerous at night.

    More a case of extremely shoddy construction.  It is so bad it could only be fixed by digging up the entire road and building a new foundation under it.
