Health authorities for Guerrero report 1 active case of Covid-19 in Zihuatanejo.

Guerrero's Congreso voted to decriminalize abortion up to 12 weeks. State by state is ratifying the law as instructed by Mexico's Corte Suprema. (Still waiting for cannabis to get the same attention.) While the USA slides backwards into the darkness, Mexico is slowly making important strides forward. ¡Felicidades a todas las mujeres guerrerenses!

Next weekend is the XXXVIII Triatlón Internacional Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo in Ixtapa, and several main streets in Ixtapa will be closed from 5:30AM Saturday morning until 3:00PM in the afternoon. If you live there or want to watch the Triatlón plan your day accordingly.

It was definitely another hot day today. The mar de fondo is up pretty high again, too. The breeze has been helpful in staying comfortable, but tonight the cooling air is likely to bring all the smoke from today's huge fire on Cerro Viejo down into the urban areas of Zihuatanejo, so expect it to be a bit heavy tonight.

Some truly lovely local lodgings in the region are still available for the coming season.

So as we're out'n'about last evening I spy this on the horizon. Wait! Wasn't the Luna Roja the previous night during the eclipse? Well this sure caused a lot of gossip and confusion, but we actually see this quite frequently during the burning season.

So off to the pier we practically ran hoping for a better photo. However, my iPhone's camera just couldn't capture the colors correctly, so a friend at the pier shared her photo with me. Gracias a mi estimada amiga Karla Valle por esta foto.

So breathtaking! So sad that it was caused by smoke. Breathe deeply. That stuff is just great for your lungs!

That beautiful "blonde", as in RICKENBACKER bass guitar, in the thumbnail of the Soda Stereo video lead on this post, was quite attractive and she did catch me eye:-D
I continued on to listen (although I'm not a fan of that band) to hear more of the Rickenbacker bass, being among my favorites.
But, nope, I didn't detect their classic characteristic bass tone & sound as I had hoped for.
I'll have to go back to a video by YES for that I suppose.

What is the 'classic characteristic bass tone & sound' of the Ricky bass?
It sure was thumping my little Bose bluetooth speaker (which seems to be designed to forefront bass in any music that's thrown at it).
Of course I dream of a Ricky 12

Some examples to hear the classic Rick bass tone & sound may be Roger Glover on Deep Purple's "MACHINE HEAD" Lp, (though the cover shows a Fender bass head), he was seen to play one live. Also Chris Squire on Roundabout, with YES.
I think Sir Paul used one on some tracks with Wings.
I also have small Bluetooth speakers (Logitech Wonderboom 2), and I didn't have the response you did with your Bose.

What bass players use a Rickenbacker?
Professor Google replied:
Notable Ricky bass users include Paul McCartney, Roger Glover of Deep Purple, Bruce Foxton of The Jam, Bernie Calvert of The Hollies, Jesse Keeler of Death From Above 1979, John Entwistle of The Who, Elliott Smith, Chris Squire of Yes, Paul Duffy of The Coral and of course – Lemmy

and, re: "Of course I dream of a Ricky 12 "
Don't dream or miss out, I would suggest that you buy one, even IF you had to pay over time.
At our ages, our time is limited, treat yourself to the fun & enjoyment that instrument would give you.

Sounds just like I'd expect a Fender or even a modern Ibanez.
But whadda I know- I'm just a hack guitar player in the process of dumping his 27 guitars...

Still waiting for same-sex marriage to get the same attention as well, 7 years later. Jesus and I are part of a group of other same-sex couples who are trying to push for this but it is seeming to get no attention.

The struggle continues in Acapulco, too. Hopefully soon.
