  1. Words matter. Say what you mean. Who is being “lorded over”? Some people don’t care if it is “the weekend” or not. They like to live their lives with a minimum of aggravation and traffic aggravates them. They can just as easily do what they want Monday through Friday. They choose what days they go out and about. They are not dictated to by the calendar. “Oh, it’s the weekend! I must go out and hassle traffic and deal with crowds because Weekend!” It is a lifestyle choice, not a civil rights issue.
  2. How do you translate “shop early” and “stay home weekends” into “being locked up all the time”?
  3. Food is delicious, service is great, setting and ambiance delightful, and prices fair. Highly recommend.
  4. If the sellers do not want to pay the commission of a broker to run the sale from their home and there is too much large furniture to be sold out of a bazarre then they are left to sell through ads placed on web boards or Facebook buy/sell sites and handle it all themselves. I am assuming donating the stuff is also not an option for them. Other than driving away and leaving everything behind I see no other options for them. I wish them the best of luck in disposing of their property.

    Turkey Fries

    I can not understand why you are having a problem finding in the central highlands of Mexico an obscure U.S. “treat” found only in the Midwest (and even there must be special ordered and is still “hard to get”).
  6. Speaking of store access, I went to Soriana yesterday. Walked in and shopped. Just like that. There were very few people shopping. Two registers open. One person checking out, and I went to the second register where the cashier was waiting for me. Everyone masked.
  7. So happy your dog is back! What a great community we live in.

    Chili Dog anyone?

    Now, THAT’S the spirit!
  9. You think no one else has told him he is wrong? My guess is he responds the way you do when someone tells you that you are wrong.

    Thank you, Rick. I love when people who have chosen to live in the central highlands of Mexico bitch about how food here is not as good as what they had in the country they came from. Sometimes they have not even tried it. They just look at the picture and commence criticizing.
  11. He is the governor and it is his responsibility — whether you think he is misguided or not. You may think you are (or actually be) smarter or better educated or more informed or anything else you care to think about yourself. You are not the governor and he is.
  12. Not sure what you want. Either you believe people are being denied entry to stores or you don’t. Either you decide to sit in your house for two weeks or you go out to do what you need to do. I don’t understand demanding details of an encounter from a poster you apparently have issues with.
  13. In addition to space and duration of contact you need to consider the viral load of your encounter. Even IF a person who is carrying the virus sneezed at exactly the second they walked past you (and, as Mostlylost pointed out, what are the chances of that happening?) the amount of virus in the droplets that you MIGHT inhale can easily be knocked out by your immune system. Nothing happens. Stand or sit a couple of feet away from an infected person for several hours, talking, laughing or maybe shouting, singing and the viral load you take in may overwhelm your immune system and you get sick.
  14. Have you ever considered not responding?
  15. “Most of us” don’t care about your feud with Happy (and numerous others). I read his stuff or don’t. Enjoy it or don’t. Agree with him or not. But, one thing I don’t do is constantly snark, snarl, snap, and spit at everything he posts. When you do, you exhibit how much power he has over you.
  16. There are people on the hairy edge. A friend found out about the increase when she submitted her paper work. It bumped her out of range. Luckily she found a work around and got approved.
  17. I have had more than my share of interacting with the sad, snide, unprofessional doctor here and on TOB. Sadly, several friends have had much more unfortunate (and expensive) interactions with him IRL. I hoped he had learned his lesson about how he in interacts with the public, but I see he has not.
  18. Do you realize that if this is a clown show/game you have joined it?
  19. The OP has made herself very clear. She does not want advice from people here. She wants to make contact with other Yorkie owners who view their dogs as their babies and having special needs owners of other breeds can not understand. If you are not one of those people please consider just scrolling on by. Or start a new thread about dog ownership in general.
  20. Yes. More than one person may be collecting for a cause. They use different ways of reaching out to different audiences. Are you saying only one person can be collecting donations for these young people? Are you saying all the money has been collected already and no more is needed? Are you saying Harry is doing something wrong? Please clarify what you mean here.
  21. No. Not as far as I understand it (which likely is not very far). I doubt there is one “fact.” There are opinions, experiences, stories, rumors, and suppositions. There are also exceptions to everything you thought or “knew.” The conclusion I formed into my opinion is that if you are a resident of Mexico or have confirmation from someplace you will be staying here or a nice story about coming to, say, care for your sick relative there is no problem. Or if you hit it right you need none of the preceding. Hope that clears things up.
  22. I agree but don’t understand what that has to do with this thread.
