  1. According to one of the news articles referenced above, businesses can receive a credit for the VAT they have already paid for these goods or request a refund of the VAT accrued. Therefore, there would be no need to boost their prices for that.
  2. Certain smartphones can also provide a feature to monitor your “walking steadiness”, not to notify others but to alert yourself that your balance, stability, gait, and coordination may be putting you at risk for falling down. https://screenrant.com/apple-iphone-walking-steadiness-feature-ios-15/
  3. I agree with Mainecoons. BofA Bank of America informed my neighbor recently that they will no longer be processing paper checks. Anyone using checks may want to look into various ways of transfering funds electronically to prepare themselves for the future.
  4. Perhaps the Chapala police should be alerted because, based on this discussion, a riot might break out when when Lakeside Medical Group begins presenting their Medicare Advantage Plan seminars at the American Legion this week.
  5. If I were a duck, I'm not sure I would hang out in a place that sells bird wings!
  6. It's hard to argue with English author Thomas Kyd who first said back around the year 1590 that, " . . . evil news fly faster still than good". But here's a piece of good news for a change -- the Semáforo de riesgo epidémico, or COVID-19 warning "traffic light", for Jalisco state will return to the status of "yellow" beginning September 6, 2021.

  7. Clearly, the message sent earlier in the month was not at all the last word about this topic . . .
  8. If you believe COVID-19 "traffic signal" sanitation warnings are based on miracles and magic then you are misinformed. Here is an exhibit showing the empirical evidence used to determine the "red signal" warning for Jalisco for 9-22 August 2021. You can review the methodology for yourself if you wish by accessing the link below. Semáforo de riesgo epidemiológico COVID-19: indicadores y metodología https://bit.ly/3sgkqaD
  9. Godwin's law: As the length of an online discussion increases, the probability that someone will introduce a comparison involving Nazis or Adolf Hitler approaches "1".
  10. Here is a copy of the most meaningful comments I have seen that pertain to this post.
  11. Makes you wonder what happened to the old Voltairean principle we all learned about in civics class -- "I disapprove with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
  12. I do agree with one of the statements made earlier in this post -- that the world would be a much different place if people were actually required to read reference materials themselves before citing them or criticizing them on social media.
  13. This report tells the story of Lake Cuitzeo, with an area around 1/3rd the size of Lake Chapala located about 275 km east from here, which today is 70% dry. The story highlights a number of contributing factors -- dry weather, pollution, expanding cities, poor water management, the lack of infrastructure needed to collect and preserve rainfall. Can it happen here? "Doomed to Stay: The Dying Villages of Mexico’s Lake Cuitzeo" As Mexico’s reservoirs run dry, the fishermen, farmers and ranchers stuck on the drying lake beds wonder how they will survive.

  14. If you have a Samsung smart TV connected to the internet, "Samsung TV Plus" was introduced in Mexico earlier this year. This provides users with several free streaming TV channels, some of which are now showing Olympics coverage. "Samsung TV Plus se lanza en México brindando televisión gratuita y sin suscripciones a los usuarios de una Smart TV de Samsung" https://bit.ly/3eWqcsO
  15. I know TUDN Channel 5 and Azteca Sports Channel 7 will be providing coverage . (At this time on Friday morning they are broadcasting the opening ceremonies.)
  16. Thanks ibarra -- I edited my post to eliminate any confusion. - Brian D.
  17. Actually, one of the paintings by Efrén in his auction is from France! (Aix en Provence).
  18. Happy to give local artist and community champion Efrén González a plug here, even though his event has nothing to do with the French national holiday "le 14 juillet" (a.k.a. Bastille Day).
  19. There's a seamstress located behind the Chapala Plaza mercardo. A few store fronts down from the tortilla place. Bang on the big green door. (P.S. This is not the Oh Shirt embroidery shop.)
  20. According to the program's guidelines, it appears that vehicles not registered in Jalisco ARE included in the regulation. https://bit.ly/3xAJ1sE
  21. Also, on the LCS web site you may have to access the small scroll bar on the side of the event description to reveal the advance ticket purchase option which appears lower down. `
  22. And what, pray tell, the heck is this?
  23. I was surprised to see this statement in a news report recently: The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in December said companies can legally mandate that all employees re-entering the workplace and new hires be vaccinated for Covid-19. The only exceptions allowed are for disabilities and religious reasons.
  24. Perhaps this is a silly question but . . . What is it that Lake Medical Group/Lakeside Medical Group does? They do not provide medical care and they do not issue health insurance.
