  1. Don't forget: close, then closer, and finally closest !!! A ways to go by your admission.
  2. During April, May, and until the rainy season starts, the heat can be very oppressive here at Lakeside, BUT, my major complaint is the "extreme" UV rating, that indicates a person could burn in as little as 5 minutes from sun exposure. Best climate in the World? Certainly not during these months. Rest of the year, excellent weather.
  3. One problem is the import duty at entry.
  4. Give it a rest. This is the one about Mexico.
  5. Air pollution is a real problem in Mexico, causing about one in 17 (5.9%) of all deaths in the country. It is the eighth largest cause of death, after factors such as diet, overweight, high blood pressure, alcohol and drugs, smoking and lack of exercise. The most dangerous of the airborne particles are known as PM2.5 . Air quality in Mexico is among the worst in the world. According to the World Bank, air pollution kills nearly 33,000 Mexicans every year, mainly in towns and cities.
  6. Maybe we should start with the worse offenders, like China, Mexico, etc. THAT might make an impression.
  7. Certainly this Century, but not this Decade.
  8. And, others clean house for 480 pesos for 6 hours. Not near the physical labor, yet pays more. Maybe it is the "training" that makes the difference?
  9. Sister-in-law in California pays $21.50 an hour, so $12 an hour here seems about right, no?
  10. I won't give it away as I can't type numbers above 99.
