Trice,

I've got to borrow (steal) that sig line.

On another topic; are there any Mexican beers that aren't owned by foreign corporations now ?

According to Wiki FEMSA and Grupo Modelo have over 90% market share en Mexico, so that leaves a number of craft beers, most of whom are sold in the States in order to make profitable numbers.

I doubt they are sold anywhere around me.

Mexico to remain safe

Well...it looks like Mexico will remain safer for a bit longer....

As I was heading out of ATL, my bike came down with a bad case of...."But I don't want to go...." Something in the electrical system and heat related that cause it to stall, backfire and generally just piss me off... There seem to be a few guys suddenly with a similar issue on the buell board with no solid diagnosis...So...as the clock's a ticking seems I will have to postpone this one and fly down to make the wedding for the people I've never met before in time.

On a happier note (well, I'm not sure if the bike pisses me off more or this one) my SO seems to be ecstatic that I will now be flying and cant wait to see me (having flown down last week)....she really needs to work on her acting skills....(i'm sorry about your bike, I know you've been planning this ride for a while...just seemed to lack something in delivery) LOL.

So...all you FF's down there are safe...for now....but I'm still coming...maybe it will have cooled down a little by the time i get this all sorted...

Ditto, people here (in Mexico) seemed to give way more of a damn about Spain than I thought they would.

The fact of being nervous about the election and having a PRI president

In other words; nothing.

I really don't wish to get into Mexican politics as I respect those who have "more of a dog in the fight" than I do; however, there weren't many good choices in the election. It was kind of like our last election. Poor choices =Poor outcomes.
God bless Mexico !
