  1. I agree with you Jeanneboo. The observation by Tingting "My civil rights don't end where your fear begins." Could be countered with "The right to swing my fist ends where the other man’s nose begins." Except that instead of a fist it is a scientifically proven risk in the embodiment of a virus. Without a mask, you risk yourself and others in the community and most importantly, if you get sick, you risk hospital staff who must take care of you. Would you sign and carry a release that states that you want no treatment for COVID because "I got sick of my own free will and don't wish to put anyon
  2. Anyone sell them here. I like them and know about the various delivery services but don't have enough other things to buy to make a $150 to $200 peso upcharge worth it. The bagels at Costco are $100 per dozen. I know there will be some upcharge, just hoping it will be less than double. Otherwise I'll just buy loads and freeze them. Thanks.
  3. I don't understand why youtube videos have any credibility if the presenter is not a well known and recognized person. Anyone can post on youtube, I'm not going to spend an hour watching someone that may or may not be a reliable source. I've watched expert witnesses under oath convincingly tell lie after lie. You cannot tell when a good liar is spinning a tale and a good liar is often more convincing than a truthful person who is anxious about telling the exact truth. That's why there are published articles peer reviewed and open to critique. Not perfect but as good as we have. Anybody can aim
  4. I got mine on Amazon. I have some I can share to tide you over. I have Feather brand, I've tried many but these are the best. Here is the link. https://www.amazon.com.mx/Feather-Hi-Stainless-Blades-Double-Packets/dp/B004RWTSEG/ref=sr_1_2?__mk_es_MX=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&crid=1E8BFBFKLW0BN&keywords=feather+blades&qid=1584805732&sprefix=feather+%2Caps%2C187&sr=8-2 Send me a PM if you need some now.
  5. I don't think that it is offered at Lakeside. I can create an account, login, order stuff and then I can't ship except to certain stores but not here. They just don't have explicit error catching that says "that location is unavailable for shipping." Maybe that has or will change, I haven't tried it for a while.
  6. Microdyn is colloidal silver in a very highly concentrated solution with gelatin of animal origin. The animal gelatin is probably what accounts for the color. But with concentrations of between 1800 ppm and 5000 ppm this is way stronger stuff than you can make at home unless you have access to some sophisticated equipment. Depending on how long you let your home brew is probably between 10 ppm and 25 ppm. Enough to be beneficial but one drop of microdyn in a glass of water does the same thing. Microdyn should work as a sanitizer against corona in high enough concentrations. Depends upon the o
  7. Microdyn used for cleaning vegetables, very cheap and available at most tiendas. Highly concentrated and effective antiviral, bactericide and anti fungal agent.
  8. Here is a report from the Imperial College in full and summarized below. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/media/imperial-college/medicine/sph/ide/gida-fellowships/Imperial-College-COVID19-NPI-modelling-16-03-2020.pdf The Imperial College team plugged infection and death rates from China/Korea/Italy into epidemic modeling software and ran a simulation: what happens if the US does absolutely nothing -- if we treat COVID-19 like the flu, go about our business, and let the virus take its course? Here's what would happen: 80% of Americans would get the disease. 0.9% of them would die. Be
  9. I use cpap.com and ship to Mexico. Full selection of devices and equipment ans I've not had a problem with delivery. I have someone carry them in when that is convenient but I can't always wait.
  10. I finally updated to Win10 from Win7 on 3 different computers after using it on a new computer for several months. There are some things to like about it and a few regrets but all-in-all I now prefer it to Win7. It is also easier having all the computers on the same OS. But here is the trick, the free update program is still in effect. Read this article and follow the instructions. If you have a licensed copy of Windows 7 or greater it will update to the equivalent Win10 package for free. I made one thumb drive and used it on each of the computers. Here is the article: https://www.zdnet.com/ar
  11. My first efforts were the same as yours. I may have been using chicken feed. But I haven't sprouted feathers and the flavor was much better than the old boxed cornmeal.
  12. Regular. What you want are those large dried hominy grains that have been slaked with lime. They have some at the supermarkets that are moist and wrapped in plastic but you want the dried kind. I get mine at a little vegetable market on Hidalgo on the south side of the street just before six corners. I have only seen white corn hominy there. I'm more used to yellow for polenta but the flavor is very good using the white. On to cornbread soon! I haven't tried this yet but it seems like the moist hominy could be turned into corn nuts with a little bit of work.
  13. I have had some successful experiments making grits/Polenta using dried hominy (available almost anywhere here) and my blender. Process only small batches and you can control the coarseness easily. The flavor is noticeably better than the pre ground and boxed cornmeal.
  14. I got mine at the hardware store in Riberas next to Sunrise Cafe. There are specialty stores in GDL but they would probably charge more.
  15. Perhaps you can ask the Maestro about a repair of your existing pump. He can probably set up some sort of temp fix while the pump is out for repair. Either way, if you buy new, have the old one fixed and saved for that rainy day. There is a pump repair shop that the very busy plumber I know uses in east Riberas just west of the steel yard.
