Mis Estimados Compadres, 
Amigos y Compaņeros....

The shady side of the streets of San Miguel are becoming very crowded now that the hot weather is on us here in San Miguel.... Everyone wants to walk on the shady side of the narrow streets of San Miguel, here in San Miguel, now..
Also, with the hot weather, the city seems to be a lot more smelly near the end of the day..
I still seem to be the only Gringo riding the buses in San Miguel... 
Riding the buses in San Miguel is a very low class thing to do...
I love being part of the lower class....

April 30 was Children's Day in Mexico....La Dia de los Niņos - all of the little kids were really dressed up on the Chidren's Day - especially the little girls - or at least the little girls being dressed up was a lot more noticeable than the little boys being dressed up... The little boys were dressed up too, pants with a crease in them, hair combed, nice shirt....
I think that the mother's might have more fun on Children's day than the children..
It is like playing with dolls, dressing up their little kids....
They, the Mexicans, do the same thing on Mother's Day, which is on May 10, 
that specific date, in Mexico...  They go to Catholic Mass on these days and they get blessed by the Catholic Priests....
Being a Mother is a job and a career...
Being a Father is not a job and a career..
Although my son, Alexander, seems to beiing making it a job and a career 
with my grandson, Lucas and my Granddaughter, Alana...
That is in addition to his career as an executive in a Chinese Communist oil company operating in Alberta, Canada and exploiting Canada's oil resources for the benefit of the Chinese Communist Dictatorship, that wants complete and total, global domination in the world., and not for the benefit of the peace loving, democratic Canadians...  Everyone has a price, and obviously the Chinese Communists have found out what my son's price is...
Good luck my Son - and I hope that you are teaching your kids and my grandchildren to talk in Chinese, the Mandrin Version...
BUT I AM DIGRESSING!!!!!!!!!!!
 
April 30 was Children's Day in Mexico - La Dia de Los Niņos....
May 01 is May Day - Labour Day  - along with the rest of the World, with the exception, as always, of the United States(in Mexico, the EE:UU) and Canada...
May 05, Cinco de Mayo Day or the Batalla of Pueblo Day   - the Mexicans defeated French forces at Pueblo on May 05, 1865 - note: the French were trying to take over Mexico, during the Civil War in the United States (EE.UU)...
May 10 - Mother's Day in Mexico..... La Dia de La Madres....

Some Mexican History
1810 to 1821  - Mexican War of Independence from Spain/Known as New Spain before the war, and Mexico, when they achieved independence...
1846 - Texas suceeds from Mexico, with American help...
1848/1850  -  War with the United States - Mexico loses more than 1/2 of its territory to the United States....
1865 - War with France - French attempt to take over Mexico..(Napoleon 3rd )...
1910 to 1921 - The Revolution - a Civil War - over 2 million Mexicans die in this Civil War.
Note: USA occupies Mexico City in an attempt to enforce the debts owed to it by Mexico..
President Huerta, known as the Cockcroach, flees Mexico in 1917 with a 35 car train that carries everything of value that he can take with him - gold, silver, money, art objects, women, booze - he was an alcoholic.... he died in a Texas Prison in 1921 from Syphilus.
An interesting individual..
1926 to 1929 - The Cristero's Wars - a war between the Mexican Government and the Roman Catholic Church in Mexico - death toll in excess of 100,000 - peace treaty signed in 1926 - with neither side winning. Maybe the Mexican government won, because the powers of the Roman Catholic Church were greatly and much reduced in Mexico. But the Mexican Government did not succeed in wiping the Roman Catholic Church off of the face of the Earth in Mexico.....
1930's  - expropriated all foreign assets in Mexico - the USA did not like this...
1995 - expropriated all foreign banks in Mexico...
Today, all banks in Mexico are foreign owned and controlled....
I do not know how that happened....   
 
I have taken a much needed break from "trying" to learn to speak Spanish for the month of April.. I am resuming my Spanish Classes on May 05/Monday.....
 .,    
I use a cup of bottled (purified) water to brush my teeth...
The tap water would probably be safe to use to brush my teeth - but why take a chance..
And I change the purified water in the cup that I use to brush my teeth ever 4 or 5 days..
And I just do not believe how filthy dirty the water is in my teeth water brushing cup after 4 or 5 days..  Does all of that dirt and filth in my teeth water brushing cup water really come from my mouth.. Is my mouth really that dirty and filthy.... It is a hard to believe... And I keep a cover over that cup, to keep the bugs out of it, so the dirt and filth is not coming from the air...
I learn something new every day.... But I do not think that I am going to live long enough to learn everything....

I do not want to die.  I want to live forever. I  am always amazed, when I get into these discussions with people, about how many people do not want to live forever, and they feel very strongly about it - they do not want to live forever.... Are they bored with their lives???,, are they not enjoying their life???, are they not curious about what is going to happen in the future????..  Why oh Why do they not want to live forever like I do...  WHY??? WHY??? WHY???, WHY???, WHY????? . 

Viva La Mexico
