  1. https://www.theyucatantimes.com/2021/10/canada-issues-travel-alert-for-insecurity-in-13-states-of-mexico/ MEXICO, (October 20, 2021).- Faced with “high levels of violence and organized crime,” the Canadian government called on its citizens to avoid non-essential travel to 13 states in Mexico. The alert was published by the Canadian government on its official government websites. “Violent crimes, including homicides, kidnappings, vehicle thefts, and extortion continue to increase year after year across the country in Mexico, including in popular tourist destinations. Be extremely cautious when traveling to Mexico City and the surrounding municipalities in the State of Mexico, where crime rates have increased in recent years, ” the statement warns
  2. Thank you so very much. Would you mind sending me a PM when you know the cost and also what your husband thinks of them when he has used them.
  3. Anyone had ear molds made at Costco or other places locally for hearing aids? Any idea of cost and time? TIA.
  4. Be sure you have the title in your name (the US Title). If not, you have to prove the car belongs to you to get a title in your name before you can register it there.

"Careful and public scrutiny of the evolving data will be needed to assure that decisions about boosting are informed by reliable science more than by politics," authors wrote, adding in part: "Widespread boosting should be undertaken only if there is clear evidence that it is appropriate." The comments come after Dr. Janet Woodcock, acting commissioner of the FDA, and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recently advised the White House that regulators need more time to review necessary data before approving a COVID-19 booster shot plan.
  6. Gotta get that jab at the Us , don't you? What an a&&.
  7. Don't you ever get tired of asking the same question here. No one here can answer that for you. Why don't you ask a Mod or the Adm in a DM? Is that simple or too simple?
  8. Yep, they need that Mexican phone number to send you codes. They will not use a foreign phone number. Citibanamex has been easy to work with. Need a utility bill in your name.

After all, I could hang out with other people from the United States in my own country; why would I want to do so here? Plus, my goal was to learn Spanish, and I wasn’t going to do it by just spending my time with people who spoke my language. I approached this, however, assuming that Mexicans’ attitudes toward friendship and their relationships with friends were much the same as those in the U.S. They are not, and it’s caused me to do quite a bit of reflection on the differences between the two.
  10. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article253439134.html Immunocompromised people can now get a 3rd COVID vaccine shot. Here’s what to know

An additional 835 COVID-19 fatalities were reported Tuesday, increasing the August total to 18,420, or an average of 594 deaths per day. The official death toll stands at 259,326, a figure the government has accepted is a significant undercount.
  12. For those of you who were concerned for the Gov. : Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tests negative for COVID-19 four days after positive test The governor credited his vaccination for keeping his infection "brief and mild" and encouraged others to consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
  13. No, no third shot. You been watching that nbc crap too much. He took the "cocktail", the Tamiflu of this virus. Hasn't any fear of anything. Why do I waste my time on dense people. Bye !
  14. That old "fear" will do you in every time.
  15. Actually, Abbott is running the State from his Mansion and is not missing a beat. Sorry, he is not "scared" and is doing excellent. No symptoms. Thanks for his concern !
  16. ABBOTT AND COSTELLO’S ‘WHO’S ON FIRST’ ……updated version. Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’ Lou: ‘Why not?’ Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’ Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’ Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’ Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’ Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’ Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’ Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’ Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’ Bud: ‘Yes.’ Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’ Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’ Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’ Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’ Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’ Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’ Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’ Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’ Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’ Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’ Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick. Bud: ‘Ok.’ Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’ Bud: ‘That’s right.’ Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’ Bud: ‘Certainly.’ Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’ Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’ Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’ Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’ Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’ Bud: ‘That’s fine.’ Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’ Bud: ‘Absolutely not?’ Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’ Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’ Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’ Bud: ‘I know.’ Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’ Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’ Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’ Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’ Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’ Bud: ‘Correct.’ Lou: ‘Why not?’ Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’ Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’ Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’ Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’ Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’ Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’ Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’ Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’ Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’ Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’ Bud: ‘Third base.’
  17. Anyone can contact the Admin. if desired.
  18. Agree, bmh, the guy deserved much better than what was posted. They completely destroyed his plea for help. Sad. Hopefully, he found help and is getting better.
  19. I have bought Generic from Farm GDL that were actually cheaper than Dr. Simi's. Not all, but several.
