    Roofer Flat roof

    Yep. We applied Henry's expensive Silicone some years ago, after elastomeric, foam and other efforts failed, and it has worked very well.

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    10 years might be the blanket range for ultimate immunity, but from the standpoint of general threat to the populous, it takes a couple years. For example, it took two years for 63% of Brazil’s populous to gain exposure to Zika virus which researchers deemed the right level for herd immunity...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Thanks, RP, for your updates. Whether the government reacts appropriately or not (disinfectant tunnels . . . . lock downs . . . ) according to varying opinions, the bottom line is that the playground is closed for awhile . . . .

    Building high quality wood doors in Penasco:

    Actually we both mutilated the spelling. It is "Fortaleza (strength) Del Sol." Thanks for the relocation info

    Building high quality wood doors in Penasco:

    Fortelaza del Sol -- They have things in stock, as well as a catalog of standard items. In fact, I've taken in a drawing of a sideboard with dimensions and asked them to make it. Beautiful job. Did it again years later for a floating shelf unit. Beautiful job.

    Satisfied Frog shutting down

    As with any pandemic / epidemic, “herd immunity” prevails. The main, original purpose of the stay-at-home order was to buy time to shore up medical facilities in the inevitable spread. That having been done, you’re right – more will be exposed (as Roberto said, in the case of Penasco, areas...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Ha! Yeah – Reminds me of back during H1N1, when they had southward travelers into Penasco stop, hold out their hands, and get a squirt of hand sanitizer.

    To All...

    I agree in (and enjoy) discourse that challenges and brings insight to thought and opinion on an informative and neighborly platform. Thing is -- as you point out -- there are those who launch personal and political attacks from the darndest, most innocent, simplistic, often unrelated topics...

    They think the virus is the fault of the US visitors

    Yes. While hydroxycloroquine has been widely used for awhile, it has been inconclusive as to the extent of its effectiveness, and Remdesivir is the one that recently was FDA approved for treatment. Yet some (such as the doc I referred to) are finding that a combination of hydroxycloroquine, /...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Geez, Roberto. You’re beating this to death. And I’m done tossing Miramar back and forth between us. I might’ve done the same based on my perspective. In fact, I’ve done similar posts in the past, when people were concerned about the flooded Caborca Road. No evil intended. I’ve explained...

    They think the virus is the fault of the US visitors

    Yeah, Remdesivir seems to be the popular treatment. Yet there's some US doc who treated over 400 hospitalized Covid patients with a cocktail of Hydroxycloroquine, some antibiotic and zinc, and all but 2 fully recovered.

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Well yes – Now that you’ve expounded, I had missed your point. And although I’ve been coming to the Penasco area once a month for over 20 years, I only make occasional trips into town during the day. So yes – your description of Penasco’s party drinking habits in the streets among the...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Thanks for confirming. When restaurants open up, I'll take that as a clue that visitors are welcomed into town. Meanwhile, I'm stuck up here in the US eating tacos with eyes closed, in front of a fan, with Mexican music in the background, pretending that I'm up at Casa del Capitain. . . . . :(

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    Good point. A hedonistic desire for alcohol-driven fun tends to be stifled in a temporary ghost town where bars / restaurants are closed. Yes, a single person (or group) can cause damage. That is why we all take preventive measures. Again – tell me if I’m wrong – the yahoos seeking venues and...

    Looks like lock down will continue for awhile

    I was not aware that the road block on the eastern side of town was removed, thus allowing access from the east of town. Thing is, sheltering in place is nevertheless still enforced (?) and any evil-intentioned predators from the east of town would find themselves lonely and disarmed. I...
