  1. And then.....there are those who are simply incapable of understanding. They are the truly dangerous ones.
  2. Why would a haircut be essential?
  3. You could make a cut of about six or seven inches, in order to get a better match with the new mattress. A couple of inches above the ankle bones should do the trick.
  4. There is no need to call for approval. You may use a Mexican Notario and it will be accepted under international reciprocity agreements. We have done that in the same circumstances, and all was just fine. If you ask, the folks up north will often say "no" out of ignorance. If you just do it, they may then ask their lawyer, who will give them the OK.
  5. Has anyone noticed how much "stupid" is going around, fed by either ignorance or faith. Oh, they are synonymous, aren't they? Yes, the population of expats at Lakeside has a majority of the most vulnerable to Covid 19. I am also part of that very vulnerable age group, and am quite aware that we have the highest death rate, and that there will be little, or no medical halp or paliative care available. It will not be an easy death. As such, we have been keeping a very low profile, and have increased our supply of rice, beans and pasta. We are not going out and have cancelled all social events or encounters. Those who are not doing similar 'distancing' may be spreading the virus without knowing it, and they may also be contracting it themselves, and not know it for weeks. All we can hope is that the careless ones vanish first, and quickly, before having time to do more damage. This is more serious that the governments even dare disclose !!! Disease > Epidemic > Pandemic > Disorder > Panic > Civil Collapse > Pestilence > Famine > Massive death rate ............ Recession is already a 100% probability, and depression is sure to follow. THIS IS SERIOUS and you cannot escape the invisible enemy.
  6. Wher is, as is, no fuel, no pilot, airport & hangar fees due, airworthiness maintenance overdue ................. Besides; I haven't flown a plane in over half a cehtury! I can hardly believe it.
  7. Oops......yes, it is Cozumel. Split brain day !
  8. Why panic? No matter if the virus gets you or not; you are still going to die sooner now than you were yesterday........I thought everyone knew that.
  9. Toward the end of our major project, we took the contractor to dinner. We asked him if he would approve of our taking his maestro and a couple of key peoiple to dinner separately. He approved, and we took them to El Zapote, which they really enjoyed; as we always did.
  10. Guicho was high on our list too, especially for molcajetes mixtas. However, Cancun used to make the very best huachinango dorado al modo de ajo, but it began to fade a bit before we departed in 2014. Come to think of it, so did the free margaritas. Maybe that was the difference!
  11. The acceleration rate of the contagion is exponential. The great danger is that few seem to understand exactly what that means, and how very dangerous it can become in a very short period of time. Watch out for that big snowball coming toward you !!!! The known numbers are just the tip of the iceburg.
  12. The tanks are often filled by concentrator machines, like yours, feeding the oxygen to a high pressure compressor of similar size. That is the new protocol and exactly what I now have at my home, here in the USA. I can use the concentrater while it is being used to feed the compressor, or I can use another portable tank. The product is the same. I am sure that you know how to adjust your rate of flow. You may simply need a higher rate. If you still see no improvement, have your machine serviced, and see a pulmonologist if that does not help.
  13. We were visiting in the USA with Jalisco plates and were never stopped. However, we once looked out the window and noticed a "policeman" in a car, just sitting behind our car. After awhile, I went out and asked if I could help him. He complained that he could not 'run' our plates. Actually, he was a DEA agent, and about to retire. Qw had a nice chat.....nada mas.
  14. Walk the streets, try whatever attracts you. Then, after 7PM, have dinner at a cenadurai for a true cena mexicana. Our favorite was cenaduria Elba, in Chapala centro, not far from the NE corner of the mercado publico, a block east, then turn north to Calle Zaragoza #343. It is really good. It is not visible in the daytime, with the doors rolled down.
