  1. No but a lot of places pretty much require them to do business. In many places in this country cell phones are the only option. This is not only a violation of privacy rights it will be ineffective. Read the article. Most of the phones used by criminals are stolen as the article points out. Speaking for myself, I don't want to see Mexico turn into a police state like the two NOB. Thanks.
  2. The opposition is taking it to court as a violation of the Constitution. Hopefully saner and smarter heads will prevail.
  3. And just how do they expect people and the companies to come up with all of this? Crazy. 1984 has arrived in Mexico. https://www.vallartadaily.com/cell-phone-users-in-mexico-have-two-years-to-submit-their-biometric-data-to-the-government-or-lose-service/
  4. This is why you continue to be our #1 go to restaurant reviewer.
  5. Four of us ate there yesterday at 6:30. One had chicken kabobs, one had the salmon, two of us had pasta. All quite good and well presented and priced. Very pleasant place to eat, the wall stops most of the road noise. Service was excellent. We all decided we would return.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Did you take a picture of how they were doing this? Hard for me to see how this can be done without being obvious.
  10. Someone needs to do their homework: https://www.agriculture.com/farm-management/business-planning/undocumented-farm-labor-small-portion-of-illegal-immigrants
  11. Denmark has dropped the Astra Zeneca vaccine amid reports of blood clots. The good news just keeps rolling in.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. Are you in Guadalajara or Lakeside? Good expats group for Guadalajara on Facebook.
  15. I put stuff like this out on the curb, always gone within a few hours.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
