  1. Enough wells go dry, no water to flush with, problem solved....sort of.
  2. While this (image is below), is technically an anti-histamine, many people find it excellent as a decongestant, and without the side effects of things like sudafed / pseudefedrine, or the newer Claritin types. English brand name(s) is Chlor-Trimeton or Chlor-Tripolon, chlorphenamine maleate 4 mg is the generic. Little yellow pills, work great, not a half bad sleep aid either.
  3. MOD Alert: Move it to the Restaurant section please
  4. Can confirm you've joined the group, or that you just see them that way? Or....both? hahahahha
  5. How's that working out for your cell phone? Lot of others joining my recommendation to visit and rent and check things out.
  6. Coronavirus: What's happening in Canada and around the world on Tuesday | CBC News Both Alberta and Ontario have stopped A-Z first doses......saying "they have plenty of mRNA supply now" 😉
  7. Then go do your homework and stop asking here about it. It is not a lakeside topic anyway.
  8. 1 - ask your friends 2 - generally 3 - Ajijic Weather
  9. It's a cell phone, not a major life commitment. Just pick one that fits your hand, eye, and budget and buy it. Seriously.
  10. R U serious? This is almost as bad as the guy trying to pick a new cell phone on here.....at least this is relevant to lakeside tho. Make a visit for several months, rent something in 1 or more places, and check things out directly.
  11. As others have mentioned, if you have a Google account and get a new Android phone now, it is now fast and easy and automated, built into the startup of the new phone, you really almost can't avoid having it done for you. Way different than just a few years ago.
  12. Meanwhile, this regarding the Pfizer MRNA vaccine: (IMHO still preferable to A-Z, by far, due to lower risk and higher efficacy, both). COVID-19: Israel finds possible link between vaccine, myocarditis cases - The Jerusalem Post (jpost.com)
  13. Now 3 deaths in Canada from A-Z....and counting. I think they are going to have to stop using the word "rare"....... New Brunswick reports province’s first death from rare blood clot linked to AstraZeneca’s vaccine Open this photo in gallery Empty vials of the Oxford-AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine, on March 17, 2021. YVES HERMAN/REUTERS New Brunswick health officials are reporting the province’s first death of someone who developed a blood clot after receiving the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. The individual in their 60s received the vaccine in mid-April and developed symptoms a week later, chief medical officer of health Dr. Jennifer Russell told reporters Wednesday. She said the person, whose gender was not disclosed, was admitted to hospital and died two days later. “I want to stress that medical complications following vaccination are extremely rare, but they do happen,” Russell said. It is the third reported death in Canada from the rare blood-clotting syndrome known as vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia, or VITT. A 54-year-old Quebec woman died last month after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine, and Alberta officials announced on Tuesday night the death of a woman in her 50s. Russell said the risk of complications from the vaccine remains very low, between one in 100,000 and one in 250,000 doses. She added that hundreds of thousands of doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been administered across Canada, the vast majority of them without incident. The province has reported two cases of VITT. Russell said there are two other possible cases that are under investigation, but she wouldn’t provide more details until the investigations are complete. “We will continue to evaluate the use of this vaccine to ensure that risks associated with its use are proportional to the potential consequences of contracting COVID-19,” Russell said. “The risk is not zero using it in people 55 and over, but the information that we have to this date is that the benefits outweigh those risks.”
  14. CFE seems to be getting worse again in the area. I think I'm going to check into backup power systems.
  15. I am 110% pro vaccines. But the Astra-Zeneca obviously has risks that the Pfizer and Moderna do not. The 2nd person in Canada has just died from a A-Z vaccine caused VIIT blood clot. Both were healthy women in their 50's, one in Quebec, and now in Alberta. Plus quite a few more issues but not deaths. And numerous other deaths around the world from the A-Z. To the individuals who get the clots or die, the mass statistics, well, they don't really work well for them, do they? The current guidance / approach in Canada is one of individual risk assessment (Canada has all of these vaccines now, finally in somewhat decent supply, + has approved J&J now too) 1 - If you are in a high risk area and need to work or do a lot of activity around others, take the 1st vaccine you are offered. 2 - If you are retired or can work from home and stay otherwise isolated and safe, and you are more comfortable to wait for the MRNA vaccines from Pfizer / Moderna, then do that.

  17. Check Torrent Day if you have access to it, great site / service.
  18. From The Guad Reporter new edition:
  19. Why your 1st COVID-19 shot is more protective than you might think | CBC News
  20. Canada has / is a national across the board experiment in delaying 2nd doses to 3.5 to 4 months after jab #1. A behind-the-scenes look at why Canada delayed 2nd doses of COVID-19 vaccines | CBC News Time will tell....vamos a ver.
  21. Pfizer also will begin shipping from USA to Canada next week as well....finally! Kalamazoo is a lot closer than Belgium. But Belgian beer is better. 🙂
  22. Disagree, completely. Pfizer and Moderna would have already been shipping from US to both Mexico and Canada, but the US gov't blocked the exports to build a massive inventory, way more than the US needs or can even use, in either the short or long term. So the vaccines have had to come from Europe and other places when they could have come by a 2 hour drive from Kalamazoo Michingan. So that's "fine", but then don't whine when the borders stay closed since the people in those countries are not protected yet. Sharing = being good neighbours and is good for business too.
  23. And since the USA has decided not to "share", or even allow Pfizer plant to export to other countries (HEY JOE: C'mon Man!!) even though it has more in the pipeline / inventory than it can use and is using, Canada is using 4 months between jabs for all vaccines. It isn't a digital switch, 1 or 0, in fact there is some data showing a later 2nd dose can be just as effective, if not more so, than an earlier one. Time will tell.
