    Knowing that so many of you find this source credible I thought you'd find this very interesting.


    And here from a source most of you hate is a pretty detailed discussion of the NYT piece.  If you just can't handle other points of view you should skip this one.


    Surprise, surprise.  For the most part those face diapers are not necessary outside.  Of course sources many here don't like have been saying this for some time but, hey, whatever it takes to start puncturing this face diaper nonsense...


    What does this have to do with Mexico? As a moderator, or whatever your title is, you should not break the rules - just sayin’ . . .

    Hi again.  I am new to the area.  I suffer from complex PTSD and am having anxiety and insomnia not to mention horrible nightmares.  This the reason I posted about cbd earlier.  I have found a licensed talk therapist.  Looking for an emdr practitioner and some cbd.  My body responds to Indica.  I don't want pharmaceuticals.  I used to make my own RSO in the states.  After 2 weeks with 1 to 3 hrs sleep, I need some rest.  I am exercising, using relaxation and mindfulness techniques all to no avail.  Thanks for any direction.

    tonirahman.com  Toni Rahman is a good EMDR specialist.

    MEXICO CITY — Mexico has received a shipment of 211 medical ventilators from the United States as part of aid that U.S. President Donald Trump promised his Mexican counterpart. “We want to very fully thank the government of the United States, especially President Trump,” said Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard. “As the saying goes, when there are hard times is when you know who your friends are.”  info here

    And when the US Native tribes asked for COVID-19 supplies, they were sent body bags -- not just to one tribe, but several. This is not a made up story. That's REALLY happening in the  USA right now.

    Around here it is the little people getting burned.  WalMart is still open, Soriana is still open but many of our mom and pops who might have 1-2 customers are closed.  There is no justice or logic in this.  Those aren't the rich folks standing in the food line across the street from my house.

    I hear you! I sometimes shop at Soriana, not WALMART,  but most of my buying is from mom and pop shops where I live, along with shopping at the local butcher, tortilleria, polleria. I'm certainly not in favor of big box stores. Before we moved south, I hadn't darkened the doors of a WalMart in almost 25 years. Long time local buyer -- always have been.

    I do not question their right but perhaps getting their Priorities in order to reflect the extraordinary circumstance The World including Mexico finds it self in. All the time people see others willing to pick up the mess...they will keep on doing the same old thing over and over again

    Yes there are shortage of food in the total Lakeside area, some areas more so than others. We all make choices which NEED is greater, your happy with your approach ,I am happy with mine

    What many barrios need are program s to show how to prepare more nutritious meals from the food they have and drop the CocoCola from their diet. Also with all give away programs there is a delicate line to cross , those who can work and will not. Let me assure you there are children of the children now in in the feed program since its inception pre 1995

    Not all barrios are looking for the Great White Savior to come sweeping down -- I'm not here to tell people how to prepare their foods, stop drinking coca cola, etc. I'm here to live my life and be a respectful guest in Mexico. We can discuss root issues of problems 'til the cows come home. Just like Aretha, all I'm asking for is "a little respect" for those in need.

    Empathy does not appear to be your forte. The reality is that many more people will die from economic world wide disaster in 3rd world  and developing countries. Mexico is a developing country and has a large population of vulnerable FAMILIES.

    Time will tell. I've always thought that people should come first. Whose economies are people REALLY worried about -- others or their own?

    The Governor must be unaware of there being no COVID 19 cases Lakeside? The draconian Dr. Fauci must be advising him. They have to stop moving the goal posts as they are killing what’s left of the Mexican economy.

    It's about people, not money. What good is money if many are dead? People should be priorities, not money.

    Of course,  i have not been working  for 28 years  so excuse  my lapse..nevertheless  from the number of rockets being set off ,there is no sortage of food in SJC..there goes another  dispensa,  and another 

    Please don't say things like "no sortage(sic) of food in SJC" because there is an extreme shortage of food throughout this area. Sunday was a holiday and SJC is full of builders, thus the "rockets" being set off. Just because some are celebrating (as is their right), many people here are suffering and please be sensitive to that. You may not have had to work for the past 28 years, but many people here have to work until they day they die so let's all be kind.

    Xena. are you sure? While being kept at home during the past weeks I have been watching a great deal of news from both Canada and the US.  And, honestly I have heard nothing about these great health care workers being verbally attacked.  What am I missing :)  

    Health care workers across the US ARE being attacked, tires slashed, hot coffee thrown on them, and on, and on, and on. There was an article in the Miami Herald referencing this. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article241967281.html 

    Ignorance is fed by ignorance . . . In the USA, it obviously starts at the top!

    I asked because I wasn't aware of any Mexican area having mandatory mask-wearing for the past four weeks.  Just curious about that.

    Masks have been required here for about four weeks. One person at a time in stores, not many people out and about, fines for not wearing masks in public -- I go to Lakeside (not very often) and I don't see many people wearing masks and lots of people are out on the streets. We weren't wearing masks because we felt like others needed them more, but we're sporting some now! Rocking with the masks . . .

    I'm looking for someone local who can assist me in an out of town car purchase from a Honda agency in Irapuato.  I've identified the car and need help in final check out and getting Jalisco plates.  I recall some time ago a posting of a local guy in Chapala, not Spencer who is a bit rich for a car in this price range.  Anyone have a recommendation?  I thought about Rafa the car wash guy but I think he's not in town.


    Alex Peterson might be able to help you. I know he helps people purchase cars in Guadalajara: negotiations, paperwork, license plates, etc. His phone number is (33) 3577 7765.

    Not really good for the U.S. though, a lot of production being shut down.

    When the pendulum swings the other way it could be shocking.

    There used to be a sign in one of the offices where I worked: "Please god, let there be one more oil boom -- I promise not to piss it away this time!" When times are good, oil companies overspend -- now they will suffer. Worked in that industry for many years . . . saw it over and over and over.
