  1. Thanks Whipstock, am still in tears reading the responses....
  2. Can you be more specific. Friends of mine would like to have actual arrival times. (they are safe, they wear face masks..☺️)
  3. Tell me about it..for the past 7 weeks have had 2 bricklayers working for me and still have another 2 months or so to go. Never thought that between me, them, the hourly forecasts and thousands of pesos of tarps and drug induced creativity ideas would enabled me to maintain my renovation schedule. ☺️
  4. I just wanted to add one last piece of information on greening the planet then that will be it. I forgot to mention in my earlier post above that Nikola Motors is currently building an assembly plant in Arizona on a 400 acre piece of land (161 Hectares), that is big. In addition, they have built a joint venture plant in Germany with IVECO. (trial assembly has started). Its interesting, because the US truck manufacturing industry has pretty much been taken over by European manufacturers (Volvo and Mercedes Benz), but now with Nikola its a reverse, they intend to grab the European market.
  5. Okay, a first time offender will generally get one year in jail, after that not sure since I never heard back from those caught a second time. (its a slow day in Santa Maria ☺️)
  6. You could almost write a book on your experiences storing your car (its not funny but am still laughing ☺️)
  7. They also have security cameras that cover ever inch of the property. (but then again if you want to store 1000 kg of crack, people can be bought..☺️)
  8. Actually, one of the men killed is a neighbor that lives 2 blocks from my home. I use to have a conversation with him when waiting for the bus. The girl that cleans my place said that they already removed all the cooking gear from the side walk that his wife used every evening. There was an article a while back by the red cross about the reduction of injuries/deaths during the police vial crack down. 2 weeks ago there was a Domino Pizza guy down in San Antonio, he was alive but he was also warring a helmet. Last week near El Chante the brick layers that are working for me said that a motorcycle crashed near the bus. He told me that blood immediately started running out of his mouth. (yes no helmet). The government should be handing out helmets free to those who can not afford.
  9. Have a tree company come and cut off any branches overhanging your property.
  10. Thanks for the link, it was an interesting read and was surprised that even AMLO wants to wean Mexico from oil. Almost forgot that GM is planning an EV assembly plant in Sonora for the Mexican market.
  11. It takes political will to tackle climate change (yes I know its also a 4 letter word for many). Tesla and Nikola are US born products. Tesla currently has 2 large factories in the US (California and Nevada) and are currently in the process of building one in Texas. They are also building a factory in Germany and in the process of enlarging their factory in China. You mention Mexico, I agree that using oil to generate electricity makes no sense. Mexico has all the sun you could dream of but it would take the government to think green, but I doubt that will happen given the level of corruption (Guadalajara just bought 30 electric buses for the northern route, its a start). Also, I hade no idea that Texas had so many wind farms until they all froze up ☹️. Europe is leading the way, followed by the US by cutting off ICE cars by around 2030. The cost of battery production is dropping faster then I can blink an eye. Being an electrical engineer, 20 years ago I would have laugh at the possibility of an electric cars. Finally, I have no grand children and will be gone in about 10 years, so who cares about the environment. But I have hundreds of Mexican friends with children and hope they will have cleaner air to breath.
  12. The only way to verify what you say is to compare carbon foot prints. (but its Sunday so I will let you do the research ☺️ )
  13. Maybe the time has come for you to buy a Tesla. I sold my tesla shares last year and am using the proceeds to buy the Chapala Municipality ☺️. On a more serious note, I now hold shares of the electric/hydrogen truck start up Nikola (will give you an update on or around 2024..).
  14. You can post it on the other board (insidelakeside)
  15. Just on a side note, its funny that the US uses the metric system for booze ☺️
  16. Actually, they probably own it ☺️
  17. The flu has gone on for years....and will be around for many more.
  18. The universe is big. Come to think of it its infinite.
  19. Just passed that information to the "Cholos" that live in my neighborhood. They are always looking for easy income. ☺️
  20. I think he was asking for a referral, not how he should fix it. ☺️
  21. When I was a kid my mom use to give me sticky stars if I was a good kid. Now I know that as we grow older we have a tendency to regress in to child hood, but maybe we could hold off a little longer with using these achievement "stars", that is until I have a need for pampers. ☺️
  22. I stayed in an all inclusive resort once in Cuba. Never made it to the beach because there was a stand half way down that gave out free rum cokes. ☺️
  23. Actually, if the Pope was to visit Chapala, I can guaranty you that every street would be fixed and would be free of trash and dogs and, and, and...☺️ (hope he comes).
