  1. Thecontradiction I find interesting is someone feeling more angry toward an animal abuser than a people abuser. And on another note it's interesting anyone could get that worked up over a casual observation. Time for a chill pill.” — Pappysmarket

    I was no more “worked up” by your comment than you were when you wrote yours. I found your comment interesting but a bit confusing. My asking for clarification seemed to have touched a nerve. It’s interesting that you see yourself as simply writing an opinion but when someone responds to you they are “worked up.”  As it turned out, I was correct in asking for verification since you said you didn’t mean “forgiveness” but something else.

    It's not so much "forgive" or even what they think should be done. It's more having to do with people "understanding" how and why a person might be "driven" to do what they did. Like perhaps the victim had some responsibility for what happened. Never seen that type of feeling when an animal is the victim. I just find it interesting as I find much of human nature interesting...such as someone asking me to "clarify" a very neutral statement and 3 board members "Thanking" you...interesting.

    No victim ever deserves “some responsibly” for being murdered. Not a dog who barks too much or a woman who just won’t shut up. In my world we often ask each other to clarify what they meant by what they said. Obviously, you don’t care. What I find more interesting is someone not caring what he says, using any word that comes to mind and then resents being asked about it. Most interesting is finding out you believe that some  murder victims bear some responsibility for being killed. Very interesting, indeed.

    Interesting...I see so many people wanting to "forgive" when a mentally disturbed person injures or kills a human being.

    When it's an animal, throw the book at them...Interesting.

    Will you please clarify what you mean by “forgive”? Do you mean they don’t want the death penalty or they want to just let the person go or want them confined to a mental facility that includes treatment of the mental disorder?

    If my comments came across as preaching then I apologize.  Life is short so enjoy your moments however or wherever you find them.  Buen camino.

    How did you intend your comment to sound? Not being snarky. I really am wondering what your intent was in posting that comment in a thread up till then a serious discussion among people who have used, are using, or wanting to use a mind-altering substance. For the record I did not see the comment as being preachy so much as sanctimonious.

  5. It seems as though some people want the government to deal effectively with Covid19 while their lives go on exactly the same with no changes or  inconveniences for them. And, pretty much whatever measures the government takes are wrong, misguided, or stupid.

    A philosophical question.....

    Why is it so easy for some people to be able to engage Pedro in a charming, tit for tat, discussion/argument, and others, like me, can´t seem to get out of the starting blocks, like  their feet are planted in concrete ?

    I should have taken debate in school when I had a chance.......

    Meet him where he is or leave him alone. I challenge anyone to show me an uglier “relationship” than I had with him on TOB. When he popped up here I ignored him for a long time. Now, I relate to him when I can and leave him alone when I can’t. It’s simple and works for me. I think it works for him too. We are old and will soon enough all be dead. Bygones.

    I suspect that the Governor did not think twice about Tapitios driving to Lakeside when he/they developed these restrictions. "We" always think that 'we' are the center of the Universe but 'we' are only a small and somewhat insignificant fraction of the population.

    Chapala Municipality adjusted some components of the governor’s plan as I am sure other municipal leaders did. I was speaking of Chapala’s order which is the only one with which I am concerned. “We” are not always the smartest people in the room although “we” love to think we are.

  8. If you really think about it you can see the logic being used. You may not agree with it. You may think it is not effective. But do not pretend it makes no sense. For example, the people who eat in the evening are not suddenly going to rush out to eat at 5. We have friends who bemoaned being unable to dine with us because we “eat too early” — and this was in the Before Times. They could not imagine eating before 8 p.m. it’s a way of life.  If you think about the weekend restrictions they are designed to discourage tapitios from coming here. It may not be a perfect plan. You might think that in your extraordinary wisdom you would know exactly the right thing to do, but not everyone who thinks differently from you is stupid.

    I would venture to say that 95% of folks have no idea what any of all this gobbledygook means!!! All they have to do is log on to a speed test site such as fast.com and check what they are actually getting. Is that so difficult???  

    Even if that is true, that 5% have a right to post here and speak with each other. Also, there are people who are interested in and capable of learning stuff they do not already know. Skip over stuff you are not interested in.

    Omg!!!! 

    I posted this to help people. I really don't understand what you are so pissed off about. I can not climb ladders, I'm not rich and this helps not having to have 2 services like many do. I hired a Mexican friend to install this and paid him well as I do with with all the work I have him do. 

     I said what I said as not to insinuate that people should do as me. 

    Take some midol and talk to us after your period is over. 

    No offense to the ladies 

    I don’t know how ladies feel about your remark but as a woman I am offended by your misogynistic remark. You seem completely tone deaf — and about 40 years behind the times.

    EVERYTHING JUan CARLOS did for me SUCKED and had to be redone!  The man can’t even measure!  Plus he destroyed more than he fixed!  Broken tiles and masonry.  Cheap cheap parts he charges a fortune for.  He has no business calling himself a carpenter!  He’s simply terrible!

    I am wondering why anyone would continue to use a worker when he had to redo EVERYTHING because the worker SUCKED at EVERYTHING. I mean the worker SUCKED at measuring and used cheap cheap parts and charged a fortune for EVERYTHING. As he worked he destroyed more than he fixed. So, just how many jobs did he do before you noticed he couldn’t measure, was destroying more than he fixed, overcharged for cheap parts, and was simply terrible?

    Your sale phone  and computer  will automatically  change depending on where it is loaded/bought.

    I still have a  iPad on western  time

    Huh. My iPad was bought in the U.S. I chose which time setting I wanted it to be on in “Settings” and it has automatically changed to the correct time twice each year for eight years.

    Brought my car down here with my Temporaire...I want to go to Permanente.  However I want to continue to drive my foreign plated car.  It is 20 years old but still in excellent condition.  If I do get stopped what would the consequences be.  I have been told the car will be confiscated, which I am willing to risk.  Any advice.  I know several friends that are doing this now.  Thanks for you input.

    SunnyDee, I sent you a PM.
