  1. A liquid rubber paint will work also.
  2. Seems like this happens every year more or less. Obviously deliberately set.
  3. Any of the local ferreterias have an epoxy paint suitable for sealing a fish pond? If so, what is the brand and where is it found? Only need a quart and hoping to not have to go to GDL for it. Gracias!
  4. What hours and days do they do the test at Soriana? I am correct in assuming we have to have a test report dated no more than 72 hours before the flight time? I am thinking to go on a Thursday to leave a little margin for error. Thanks to all who replied. You've really helped me and my brother a lot. Much appreciated!
  5. Can he get antigen test locally within 72 hours of flight? Best place?
  6. Headed to the big court https://www.vallartadaily.com/mexico-data-protection-body-to-challenge-biometric-data-registry-at-supreme-court/
  7. My brother will be coming in a month. He has had both Pfizer shots in CA and was issued a proof of vaccination card. Will he have to get a test in order to return back to LA on Volaris? If so, what is the best way to accomplish this. He is 80 years old and can't handle a lot of strenuous. Gracias!
  8. A very rigorous German study: https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/18/8/4344/htm The "Limitations" section towards the end and the conclusions are of interest.
  9. Well, we're back to 8-12 down, 1-3 up, same as before and half what we pay them for. At least we know 20 is possible on our current setup.
  10. If the dollar starts to decline seriously, as many are predicting, and you convert dollars to get your peso rent, might be better off to rent in dollars. Just sayin' We've never regretted not renting. Too many of our friends and acquaintances have had to move because the property was sold, the owners wanted to move back in, the property was a maintenance disaster and so on.
  11. I actually posted three different pieces. That was the first. Since you want to start this again, chew on this: https://www.technocracy.news/masks-are-neither-effective-nor-safe-a-summary-of-the-science/ https://thepalmierireport.com/7-studies-that-say-masks-are-ineffective/ Settled science it ain't. And "fact checks" from known biased sources are about as useful as those cloth masks. Have fun.
  12. In 13 years we really haven't had that many problems. When i consider the cost, TelMex is a screaming bargain compared to NOB. I will say today's speed check was the first time ever to get the speed we've been paying for. A good way to appreciate what we have is to talk to someone about what TelMex was like when the government ran it.
  13. We were down for a day, neighbor called this morning. Wondered what was up. Just checked speed, over 21 down and 4 up. Have never seen that speed here. SE Ajijic centro.
  14. The view from Oxford University https://restofworld.org/2021/mexico-cellphone-data-law-crime/?fbclid=IwAR2npm94vjEk6Dnqo0a5kaE2wmLPbCFcqNpGy4VEHyMyudQbmiHP710k1os
  15. I looked at our latest bill in this block and the text starts with the sentence beginning with "Su...." There is no "Usted cuenta con..." line at all. Since our consumption is about 70 percent of our production I would expect to see something about accumulated credits. Do we have a problem with CFE I'm hot aware of?
  16. Some good news: https://www.informador.mx/jalisco/COVID-19-Jalisco-volvera-a-semaforo-verde-gobernador-pide-no-bajar-la-guardia-20210422-0100.html The much feared by some great increase in covid as a result of people getting together over the two week Easter holiday didn't materialize.
  17. Like here, just as in the U.S., it depends where one lives as to the level of personal crime. There are parts of GDL that are almost as safe as here and parts that are more like Chicago. "Location, location, location" works with crime too.
  18. Could you post a picture? There is a gang that also uses chalk markings. I can determine which is which once I see it.
  19. If I quoted sources you all like they would all be of one persuasion and we both know that. Rather I go to professional sources like the last one that are heavily documented and present you the opportunity to go directly to the source material and read it independently. I do that often to make sure the reference document is quoting the sources accurately. I'm finding that foreign sources in general tend to be much more rigorous and much less political. IMO the "science" NOB has been for the most part so heavily politicized both pro and con as to make it useless and misleading. I don
  20. You're joking, right? Hard to get more credible than the scientists involved in this. I've now posted three different professionally done, highly documented and at least one peer reviewed study of this topic. Really, draw your own conclusions and do accordingly. For myself, I am under no illusion whatsoever these non medical masks used and cleaned more or less, mostly less, by the public do anything other than create a fiction of safety. Repeatedly I have seen this pointed out even in many of the references which support the use of masks by the public. The other common deno
  21. I think you missed he was obviously referring to 54D. I have ridden 54 libre, it could never be confused as being fast though it was fantastic for motorcycle riding and really scenic. I definitely recommend the part south of Ciudad Guzman for spectacular scenery and you actually can drive under one of those really big bridges. Were you referring to 54D or free 54, Cedros? For fuel consumption it is almost a wash, 80, vs. 54D because the former is shorter but more variable in speed.
  22. Yes the science behind real masks properly worn by medical professionals is well proven. And should not be confused with silly porous cloth masks worn incorrectly and seldom if ever cleaned by the public. https://swprs.org/face-masks-evidence/ There is no version of future history yet, obviously. That is my opinion of how future history will view this covid craziness. You are entitled to your own opinion. The majority of "respected" posters are not the medical and research professionals who prepared and continue to expand the findings on the efficacy and limits of m
