  1. For anyone awake shortly after midnight tonight, and for 6 hours after, there is a partial lunar eclipse taking place. See this for details.... November 19, 2021 — Partial Lunar Eclipse — Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
  2. I have just found out that anyone entering Canada, regardless of their vaccination status (even those returning, double vaccinated Canadians) are required to have a PCR test. COVID-19: Travel, testing, quarantine and borders AND: COVID-19 vaccinated travellers entering Canada - Read the section "Requirements to follow for your trip" and in particular the section entitled "Requirements to follow for your trip"; paragraph 1 - "Get a pre-entry test" where it says" "Pre-entry test result requirements All travellers 5 years of age or older, regardless of citizenship or vaccination status, must provide proof of a COVID-19 negative molecular test result to enter Canada or proof of a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 180 days. Rapid antigen tests will not be accepted." NOTE: I changed the font to red for emphasis.

  7. No financial investment. I followed the directions, ignoring all of the advertising. It's much like reading a newspaper. I don't buy the stuff advertised in the paper. I just read the content that I need.
  8. I programmed my own Firestick by following the video at https://troypoint.com/
  9. Roberto at Hernandez Llantera (beside Tony's) also calls an A/C specialist from Guadalajara to come to his shop.
  10. I can't connect to it at https://oafondos.com.mx/ either. The page just stays blank and doesn't connect. I have sent an email to Cesar Rubio, the manager of the Chapala location advising him.
  11. This is incredible. The green dots on this Google Earth map represent radio stations all over the world. Click on anyone of them and you will immediately hear that station with very good reception. For example, halfway up Ireland’s east coast, there is a station playing Irish pub music. If you click on a city with more than one station it will list the stations on the side. Zoom in, the Google Earth graphics are great. http://radio.garden/listen/680news/B3DfRJRH
  12. Check the section "Away for more than seven months" on this page: https://www.ontario.ca/page/ohip-coverage-while-outside-canada#section-1
