The Subsecretario de Salud Dr. Hugo López-Gatell announced today that although we are entering the most dangerous period of the pandemia in Mexico, our collective efforts are paying off and the curve is flattening out. This is important encouragement for us, and I hope the comerciantes acting stupidly and protesting in Avenida Morelos today will calm down and heed the doctor's advice. We've only got a little ways to go to be able to reopen, invite tourists back and finish the school year for the anxious students. So let's not blow it now.

Our coastal water remains unseasonably cool, still making for quite comfortable weather in spite of the increasing smokiness. We are certainly enjoying our quiet and peaceful evenings. Especially when we spend the evening on our azotea listening to music, dancing and sipping our favorite libations. Remindful of the days before Zihuatanejo's downtown was taken over by loud noisy bars where the young and undereducated kids pretend to be adults and the adults pretend to be kids. The peacefulness is truly the best part of this whole unfortunate matter.

Love our fresh fish!

Get up early enough tomorrow morning to watch the moon set from your roof! If this morning was any indication, tomorrow's will be one of the best in a while.

Don't forget the moon rise tonight too!

We’re probably gonna be up late howling at the moon and looking for that damn comet tonight. I suspect sex, drugs and rock’n’roll may also be involved.

But I’m sure we’ll also be up before the sun as we usually are. Life is too good here to waste.

I’ve done a lot under full moons, too, but I doubt my life should be anyone else’s spiritual model. I’ve always marched to the beat of a different drummer. Tu kilometraje puede variar.

Dead Flowers

by Oeste Hermoso @, Zihuatanejo, Wednesday, May 06, 2020, 17:51 (60 days ago) @ ZihuaRob

That is one of my favourite songs. I guess it's the Kentucky Derby reference that gets you. Really good live version on "Ladies & Gentlemen - The Rolling Stones" from 1972. On youtube.:jam: :stones:

Hola. Now that we are way off topic again, I am going to do something that I would normally not do, contribute to the off topic subject.
My favourite version of Dead Flowers is the New Riders of the Purple Sage version.
More of a stoners version.
Sorry for my digrestion.
PS. Thanks Rob for the editing power here. I must have edited this post four times. It's probably still not write.

'74 Birthday Bash

Yessirree dems some good high energy tunes.

Yes, when that movie came out in '74 we all (mom, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbor, and boss) decided to hop in the gunmetal blue '66 S-type Jag and drive from Longboat Key over to the waterfront theater by the pier in Tampa to see and hear it in "quad", one of the first movies to use that effect which was all the rage then. I've still got the poster. The poor old car overheated as we were climbing the Sunshine Skyway and we had to stop at the very top to let it cool down, coast to the bottom of the bridge to the island and get some water from the public bathroom then continue our adventure.

It was rather like a concert event.

Here's a poster I bought at the theater that now hangs in my office. You can see all the thumbtack marks in the lower right-hand corner of the poster from the dozens of walls I hung it on as I moved around, all up and down Florida. Lotta good vibes happened in front of this poster.

Hola. On May 16th, the crescent moon, Jupiter and Venus are supposed to align and create an image that looks like a happy face. Just the thing we need right now.

I was extremely eBay savvy, and like to think I can learn what I need to do well on line.

I'm going to have to assume that you are talking about a phone app? I don't have a phone, he has one that we only use to actually have contact with workers and/or text/whatsapp them.

We do use the calendar app weekly to record our CFE meter readings and......our weights.

If it’s a smart phone you should have a calendar app that you can put an alert in.

If you’re in the PC world, outlook has a calendar function that would work.
You should be able to whatever program you use for CFE to enter the alert.

In the MAC world, you would use the calendar app to enter an alert, which would automatically appear on all of your Apple devices.

Only if all the other devices were signed into the same iCloud account Or had some other method of being networked.

Simple Life

by Talley Ho @, Playa la Ropa, Thursday, May 07, 2020, 10:14 (60 days ago) @ Timmac

We don't think we are dinosaurs, just lovers of simplicity. Computers make our life simpler, so there are two laptops on each of our three floors for convenience.
No TV, no smart phone (no one to communicate with) no cloud use (what for?) nothing we have to be reminded of.

Just living a simple life here, lots of ocean and beach time, lots of reading, cooking, enjoying life.

LOVING IT!!!!

Apropos the word "Curva": in Czech (spelled Kurva) it means hooker. Driving down the highway in Mexico, when I see the sign "Curva Peligrosa", I still laugh and look for a dangerous prostitute standing around the bend. Silly, I know...

I don't know if it's originally a Yiddish word, but it and it's variants are used all over eastern Europe and possibly beyond.
