  1. There is a new feature on http://www.weather.com that may be of interest to those of us with friends and family in the US. You can now click on a link to Cobid-19 statistics for any city in the US. It often gives you County stats, but does give data for larger cities. But what I like best is when you scroll down they have a historical bar chart for the state....very interesting to see trends in both confirmed cases and deaths. They say soon to include Canada and other countries. The cobid-19 link is on the same clickable line as Today, Hourly, 10-Day, etc. Put the city in the Search City or Zip box at top of page first.
  2. You may want to share this with Mexican employees and businesses. This is link to original: https://planprotege.jalisco.gob.mx/?fbclid=IwAR0bAE_q5aSqGRdziZxly6nNEDXAhd3Mj2Vw5rxwospbJVRTRBEopcn5E5M Link to English Google Translation: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=es&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fplanprotege.jalisco.gob.mx%2F%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR0bAE_q5aSqGRdziZxly6nNEDXAhd3Mj2Vw5rxwospbJVRTRBEopcn5E5M
  3. Gossips---doing take-away from regular menu, but closing early, 5 or 5:30. I saw a couple seated there, but could have been waiting on an order??
  4. Merendero Lake looked like take-away only (they had a chain across their entry way). Best shrimp burger in town!
  5. Tabarka is now doing delivery as well as take-away. Says "Ajijic only."
  6. Never knew how often I touched my face, corner of lips, ears, nose, eyes until I paid attention. Even then, I usually noticed it after I touched my face. And it seems, always with my right hand. Here's what I'm doing now when I go for my daily walks: before I leave the house I put a alcohol wipe in my right hand and keep it there. So now when my hand comes up to touch my face, it's already got the wipe between me and my face. I also wrapped it on my index finger when I pressed the ATM buttons the other day. When I get home, it goes in the trash. For me the trick is to KEEP it in my hand...when I tried leaving it my tote or pocket, I inevitably didn't use it, forgot about it.
  7. I've never had a housekeeper here (or anywhere). We've managed to survive ☺️. Look at it this way, right now I'm guessing you're not throwing any soirees so no one's going to see if there's a breadcrumb on your floor. Seriously, the heavy stuff can wait!
  8. It's about what happens when you are in the store; if you touch food (and any surface) that has the virus, then touch your face before you leave the store or on your way home, or anytime before washing or sanitizing your hands, you're at risk for the virus. It's about the same level of risk grocery shopping as getting take-away or delivery.
  9. Excellent article here on safety of take-out food. Long but worth reading. Well researched. Good tips on how to handle delivered/take-away foods and packaging. Risk of take-away about the same as risk of shopping for food. I see so many people at groceries pick over food then put it back, many let their kids do the same. While you can boil/bake/grill it at home, you touched it at the store and if you then touched your face before you had a chance to wash/sanitize you could get the virus. We are doing one meal at home, one meal take-away or delivery. Want to support my local tiendas and fruterias, as well as local eateries. https://www.seriouseats.com/2020/03/food-safety-and-coronavirus-a-comprehensive-guide.html
  10. Might be a good time to review your voting options. This was as of late 2019, things may have changed. And...may change again due to virus. https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/internet-voting.aspx Four states allow some voters to return ballots using a web-based portal: Arizona, Colorado, Missouri and North Dakota. Note that Missouri only offers electronic ballot return for military voters serving in a "hostile zone." These states may also allow some voters to return ballots via email or fax (see the table below for more details). Alabama conducted a pilot project in 2016 to permit UOCAVA voters located outside of U.S. territorial limits to submit voted ballots via a web portal, but the state has not made this program permanent. Alaska previously made a web portal available to any absentee voter to return a voted ballot, but discontinued this option in 2018. One state has a mobile voting app: West Virginia is offering a mobile voting application in 2018 using blockchain technology. Use of the app is limited to UOCAVA voters. More information on the pilot project can be found in this video from the West Virginia Secretary of State's Office. Nineteen states + DC allow some voters to return ballots via email or fax: Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, and Washington. Seven states allow some voters to return ballots via fax: Alaska, California, Florida, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and Texas. Nineteen states do not allow electronic transmission. Voters must return voted ballots via postal mail: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
  11. Yeah, that's what I thought, too. But my former state (but where I still vote) does not allow emailed voting ballots, only accepts via fax. I asked them about scanning and emailing....nope.
  12. This looks like equipment that local clinics/hospitals could very well use.
  13. You can do it free from your computer. I used this one in the past month. Sign up for free (don't have to give them a credit card)....they give you a certain number of pages for free. Not a lot, but I just needed to send 2 pages. Fast, easy to use. I was sending from here to US number, but site says they support international. https://www.fax.plus/
  14. Is the date correct on this....I thought he made this statement yesterday, the 25th (not the 23rd)?
