  1. Tomorrow supposedly. https://www.informador.mx/economia/Plan-COVID-2021-Que-cambia-en-los-comercios-20210212-0056.html Keeping the kids out of school for another 7 months that should be great for their futures, particularly the children of the poor who sure as heck don't have the money for computers. Sad.
  2. They better. They no longer have an excuse for their egregious discrimination against over 60's. https://www.informador.mx/economia/Plan-COVID-2021-Que-cambia-en-los-comercios-20210212-0056.html
  3. The illegal age discrimination that prevented over 60 entering stores is over. https://www.informador.mx/economia/Plan-COVID-2021-Que-cambia-en-los-comercios-20210212-0056.html
  4. Found it no problema, thanks for the help folks.
  5. I want to see if he can fix a DVD player but when I go to google maps to find him they show #43A which is supposedly his store as a shack about a block west of the traffic light. Is there another 43A in San Juan? See screenshot. Anyone have a photo of his store?
  6. That project can be expected to go on for quite some time.
  7. Much better to go in via Lopez Mateos at this point.
  8. Ah, moving up and beating the snot out of Bangladesh.
  9. "Balmy" LOL. You know that word has two definitions.
  10. Yah but hey the sun was out. How come you weren't in shorts? I thought you Canadians were tough!
  11. Mainecoons


    It started out great. We remember when he was on Guadalupe Victoria, we used to get takeout frequently. Bummer.
  12. I think SIMAPA is trying to push everyone nto getting a meter. You probably would be better off with one given likely very low usage.
  13. That data is over a month old. See in the news this morning Mexico not expected to be able to vaccinate most of the elderly until the end of April.
  14. This probably would be better as a new thread but thanks for the update. What is his current hourly rate?'
  15. Personally speaking I do not miss the traffic ticket revenue racket NOB at all. Tickets there are much more about getting money for the local government than any real safety particularly those "speeding" tickets. No, I don't get them up there because I know to drive like the rest of the sheeple. Having noted that, the shakedowns here ended when we got rid of the U.S. plated car. Should have done that as soon as we knew we were here to stay, even before we went permanente.
  16. This is interesting. I have tried this before with no luck but just tried it again and it says the "service" (spam) has been cancelled. I'll let you all know if it worked this time. Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.
  17. Extremely glad I live in Mexico and extremely bored with covid threads.
  18. These people spam my cell phone 4-6 times per day. When I try to put them on the block list of my phone I get "number expired" and it won't block. Have tried sending Baja to 2222 with no effect, have put the phone number on the Mexican do not call list, all to no effect. How do I get rid of them? Thanks.
  19. Exactly right. I found that riding motos for decades really prepared me well for driving here. The mantra of long term moto riders who have ridden for many years without major mishaps is "Only the paranoid survive." Equally true for driving in Mexico. I just assume they are going to run the traffic light, pass on blind curves, ignore stop signs, turn right in front of you, etc. First and foremost whenever possible keep your distance from everyone around you. You know like social distancing on wheels. Having written that, I am impressed with the skills most Mexican drivers exhibit
  20. And by and large the Mexicans do which is why they don't work. Here, it has just stretched things out. Now going into year 2. Time to stop doing the same thing over and over again expecting a better result. Time to accept the larger community here and how they view this and put all the focus on personal protection and no focus on telling others what they should do. We have no idea if the latest round of repression, which actually let most places operate but illegally imposed age discrimination, has anything at all to do with the decrease instead of the simple passing of the holida
  21. There's no guarantee it won't be extended yet again. Our governor just can't seem to grasp the futility of his endless lockdowns.
  22. At least in the case of South Korea it is not that simple. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-52482553 Massive testing, very high compliance with protection, very strong tracking, enabled them to minimize lockdowns. Same for Taiwan. Australia went the lockdown route but it was so effective it did not drag on and on like here. Thinly populated, highly homogeneous and isolated New Zealand is not really going to provide a lot of insight for far larger and more diverse populations that have a high rate of interchange across borders. Most other nationalities are simply not as coopera
  23. You are comparing apples and oranges. This is not about complying with a legal mask policy while in the store. This is about a current paid member in good standing complying with said mask regulation and social distancing illegally not being allowed in to shop at all because of age discrimination. I don't know how the Human Rights commission could make this any plainer. It is illegal in Mexico to discriminate against someone solely on the basis of age.
