  1. Was there yesterday and there was a 3 peso spread (dollar/peso) I walked into a rep's office and said this is ridiculous and he also said they had too many dollars but if I was depositing a check it would be a 1 peso spread . I got the confirmation today and It was about .77
  2. A polieman's whistle blown very strongly into the phone will insure the person will never make another phone call again.
  3. the next budget should be a doozy since this country is broke and while he still wants to build the train to nowhere the cuts in the budget will be IMO brutal especially in the healthcare system and whatever social services there are left. Same as it ever was. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-17/mexico-downgraded-to-baa1-by-moody-s-on-weak-growth-outlook https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mexico-ratings-moody-s/pemex-debt-slashed-to-junk-as-moodys-downgrades-battered-mexico-oil-company-idUSKBN21Z3EB

  5. FDA allows up to 20 percent wiggle room or variation of the active ingredient and buffering agents or filler are not regulated at all and that can be an issue also as far as interaction with the active ingredient... If I can get it I stick to the brand.
  6. I did some searches Zena and you are correct. This bugger is a doozy...
  7. In order to curb the contagion of COVID -19 in Jalisco it was made compulsory isolation and the use of masks . Federal provisions such as closing non-essential businesses were also followed. However, the reopening of these will not be from one day to the next but gradual. According to the estimates of the Metropolitan Representation and Reaction Model (Replication) of the University of Guadalajara (UdeG), if current conditions are maintained in the control of the pandemic, reopening all economic sectors could take at least five months in the state. https://www.informador.mx/economia/Preve-UdeG-apertura-economica-total-en-5-meses-20200511-0012.html
  8. Jalisco manufacturing industries will be the first to return, anticipates governor No later than Thursday they will present the details of the state plan to reactivate the economic sectors; anticipated that the activities will return adapting to protocols and prevention measures. The companies in the secondary sector (manufacturing) and the agro-industries, which stopped their production due to the health contingency, will be among the first to re-operate in the State; the governor advanced. He reported that no later than Thursday he will present the details of the state plan to reactivate the economic sectors and anticipated that the activities will return to adapt to protocols and prevention measures. The head of the state executive branch explained that the plan includes a calendar with different phases that will define how and when the various sectors of the state economy will operate again. UdeG foresees total economic opening in 5 months “We are not discovering the black thread either, it has been said that due to the greater margin of supervision of its operation, it must start with industry, the secondary sector, and the primary sector as well, agribusiness and the countryside; They are going to have important advances. What is going to take the longest is the issue of tourism, paradoxically one of the sectors in which we are going to have the most economic damage is the one that will take the longest to reactivate, ”he explained.The state president explained that as part of that plan it is contemplated to apply special measures for mothers and fathers, with children of school age , because the minors will remain at home with the determination to close the school year at a distance. He added that they also review the issue of nurseries and how they will operate again.

  12. The Mexican economy is heading south quite quickly with the main drivers being oil revenue, tourism, exports and remittances from the states. All in shambles. Pemex downgraded to worse than junk and Mexico on the verge of being downgraded if not already to below investment quality. This is a big deal. No jobs, no money, no rental payments for local people. no food and its a a formula for worse crime. Many austeruty measures will ahve to be put in place.I wouldn't buy a home here now. I believe those who have to sell will take a haircut. I also see the fracc I am in have no rentals after the Canadians went home. Thats very telling. I believe this will take a very long time to recover and we haven't even talked about the effect of Covid. My surgeon after performing a heart procedure on me a few weeks back said to stay away from his hospital until August. I am not reading anything into it other than he knows something I dont.
  13. I was stopped by a traffic cop a few weeks ago for driving without a seat belt and not having an original of my stateside license. This guy seems to always be on either the Librammiento or at the entrace of La Floresta on the carretera. Nice fellow. Did not ask for mordida at all. Fine was about 1,000 pesos and 50% next day payment.
  14. He wants his 5 minutes of fame... I have to go now and drink some bleach/

  16. I was very taken aback by the words of some climatologists that what we see now as in blue skies etc would be a bit permanent within at least 30 years if we acted like now. We have abused this country and the atmosphere that much.
  17. do you know when car licensing offices will be open in Chapala?
  18. I believe it was somewhere north of 15,000 pesos when I had it done. The crew who did it were amazing. Took around 4 hours because they had to get my pulse down to around 60 or 70 for the scan to be effective. They gave me the films and also 3d color pictures of my heart which also showed that I had slight anemeia. Got blood work and yes, i have it. . I was amazed. ..... https://www.radiologyinfo.org/en/info.cfm?pg=cardiacmr#overview https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS710US710&q=pictures+of+cardiac+MRI&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj3yoiwwdfoAhUmmXIEHXV2CnIQ7Al6BAgEECw&biw=1366&bih=625
  19. Did I say I had an angiogram? I had far better and saw clear as day the occlusion. I had a High field Cadiac MRI . Thank for your snarky remarks. My procedure is being done next week.
  20. Its not a bit fishy and I would rather not mention this persons name for that DR is extremely well known and the report I got with the films said that I need to have this taken care of. I even saw the films and pointed out where it was needed. The films were taken in GDL. Thank you for your concern
  21. I have also been given Dr. Najar as a recommendation from some people in my complex. All say he is really good. Anyone here knows of Dr. Nahar? His practice is at San Francisco Asis hospital.
  22. Talked to my Ajijic based Doctor about stent and Dr Virgen was recommended. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Does he only work out of Los Angeles Del Carmen. I read reviews on it and most are not that wonderful.
  23. There is one coming to tapalpa centro but you wont know it until you pass it by. Conforms to the strict regulations with a very small sign. Coppels is there and you wouldn't know it.
