  1. I was tempted to point that out but did not wish to be too rude, being a rank newbie and all.
  2. On this subject is anyone aware of a mechanic capable of solder circuit board repair? This includes such things as car computers, ABS modules, etc. I already tried Moises in Riberas but he is not this far into auto electronics.
  3. Carlos is still outside the Tuesday market (most Tuesdays). Grey braids on right when exciting parking lot.
  4. There appear to be two varieties; one is large ant size, the other the size of hornets. Anybody know what's up with that?
  5. The hotel with the entrance beside Dr Georges foot place was 300 to 350 usd for an apartment
  6. Is a regional hospital an open government hospital or IMSS hospital?
  7. https://www.chapala.com/webboard/index.php?/topic/90708-dr-juan-garrido-cataract-surgery/&tab=comments#comment-690047 I found this doctor MUCH more thorough. He also offered a wide range of lenses, not just one. If it is cataracts you are concerned about check him out.
  8. As far as I know refugee status and asylum are treated the same under US law and one must be IN the USA or at border entry to apply.
  9. Does anyone have experience with notaria #3, Adriana Villaseñor Pujol, on the Carretera in west Ajijic near Villa Nova? Please PM me if you do not wish to post.
  10. It is recommended that those who have recovered get a single jab [to the best of my knowledge]
  11. https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/lasting-immunity-found-after-recovery-covid-19 The researchers found durable immune responses in the majority of people studied. Antibodies against the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, which the virus uses to get inside cells, were found in 98% of participants one month after symptom onset. As seen in previous studies, the number of antibodies ranged widely between individuals. But, promisingly, their levels remained fairly stable over time, declining only modestly at 6 to 8 months after infection. Virus-specific B cells increased over time. People had more memory B cells six months after symptom onset than at one month afterwards. Although the number of these cells appeared to reach a plateau after a few months, levels didn’t decline over the period studied. Levels of T cells for the virus also remained high after infection. Six months after symptom onset, 92% of participants had CD4+ T cells that recognized the virus. These cells help coordinate the immune response. About half the participants had CD8+ T cells, which kill cells that are infected by the virus. As with antibodies, the numbers of different immune cell types varied substantially between individuals. Neither gender nor differences in disease severity could account for this variability. However, 95% of the people had at least 3 out of 5 immune-system components that could recognize SARS-CoV-2 up to 8 months after infection. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2550-z ps. I am a microbiologist and did stay at a holiday inn last year
  12. This statement from the doctors' guide for covid treatment does not age well; "The India Council on Medical Research (ICMR) published in March 2020 (updated in May, 2020) their national guidelines for India using HCQ 400 mg once a week for health care workers, physicians, nurses, first responders, high risk patients, and family members of exposed or COVID-positive individuals. As a result of widespread prophylaxis and early treatment with HCQ, India has a death rate 1/10 the rate in the United States, where prophylactic and early treatment use of HCQ has not been recommended or widely available. As more and more countries learned from the experiences in India and began to use this once a week prophylactic dose of HCQ, the death rates dropped sharply and the demand for hospital beds also dropped. Dr. McCullough’s team at Baylor did a study in their health care workers using HCQ prophylaxis and found it to be effective and safe, with no adverse cardiac events or serious side effects." I'm hoping that antibodies from recovery (fighting off) covid will be my vaccination.
  13. As far as I know hydraulic cement is portland cement. I bought it at the large ferreteriamaterials in the middle of Ajijic on the Carretera https://www.concrete.org/tools/frequentlyaskedquestions.aspx?faqid=640#:~:text=Hydraulic cement is cement that,under water (ACI 225R).&text=The most widely used hydraulic,furnace slag (ACI 233R).
  14. It is more the portion which was being ignored as far as connecting east to west which I am referring to as complete. I raised this with Harry and about 3-5 days later work began. Of course I should have known better than to post anything positive in this 70% sour puss forum.
  15. It is my wheelchair. Are you saying no wheelchairs, baby strollers, etc.? How about people walking? No joggers too?
  16. It is so great that the path-walkway is now complete. Once again I can get to stores on the east side of the great divide and even travel to Riberas on my scooter. Thanks to Harry and Hector and all. I'm sure Moms with babes and bicyclists are grateful.
  17. I have Arthrogryposis and had to do a worldwide search for a surgeon willing and capable to take it on. The surgeon in Mexico City who operated on me is among the best in the world. I have had approximately 40 orthopedic surgeries. My post was only regarding the cost for so many days and specialized care.
  18. I got a fair price in Mexico city for a complex hip replacement, 20 days in hospital, x-rays, ultrasound, PT twice daily for just under 20k USD.
  19. Yes that was all inclusive; hospital, surgeon, assistant, anesthesiologist. It was less expensive than an eye clinic and I thought the pre-examination was more thorough than a 2nd opinion I got. In the unlikely event I had a reaction to the drugs used, I was already at a hospital.
