**LOS BARRILES FOOD BANK: URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT**

We are sorry to announce that we will not be making any further Los Barriles Food Bank deliveries until Wednesday 9th September.

One of our team members has tested positive for COVID-19. You will be pleased to know that they are recovering well and have only mild symptoms. This volunteer works behind the scenes so is NOT on the front-line making deliveries.

However, we still need to implement strict protocols to ensure that we’re not putting anyone else at risk including:

• Two weeks shut down for the Los Barriles Food Bank (deliveries will start again on Wednesday 9th September – we will issue a revised schedule beforehand).
• Testing for those that came into close contact with this volunteer.
• The Los Barriles Food Bank Head Office will be closed for the same duration.
• Thorough cleaning of the Head Office and storage facilities.

This is a reminder to everyone that masks, washing hands and social distancing are vital if we are to beat this virus. Otherwise it will continue to affect us and we won’t be able to get back to our normal lives.

DISCUSSIONS – ANSWERS – ANNOUNCEMENTS

a.  I am a lawyer in Mexico, first to be awarded a licence to practice law in Mexico with law studies in universities outside of the republic.  I have been working as a lawyer in Mexico since 2003,  17 years…Plus a few more years in Canada.  As a social service I will answer any question regarding legal matters afecting foreigners living or visiting Mexico.  Each an every question must be presented in writting at can-am-mex@hotmail.com writting in the subject box: QUESTION.

b. Juanito Medina, who sang for several years at Hotel Las Palmas and at various events and resturants here on the Cape, passed Sunday from Parkinson’s.  He will be dearly missed.  As Christians, we know there will be a fiesta in heaven for him and heaven will be a happier place with his beautiful, angelic voice.  He was called “El Cantante” by his peers — THE Singer of Singers.”

c.   Many English speakers are surprised that a farewell isn’t typically “𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐨𝐬” but rather they hear the phrase “¡𝗤𝘂𝗲 𝗹𝗲 𝘃𝗮𝘆𝗮 𝗯𝗶𝗲𝗻!”.  It is the English equivalent of “𝗛𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗼𝗻𝗲!” and can be responded with “𝗜𝗴𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗲!”, which means “𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗼𝗼!”.  If you were speaking to a friend and you wanted to be a little less formal, you’d say “¡𝗤𝘂𝗲 𝘁𝗲 𝘃𝗮𝘆𝗮 𝗯𝗶𝗲𝗻!”; both mean “(𝗜 𝗵𝗼𝗽𝗲) 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘁 𝗴𝗼𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘆𝗼𝘂!”.  Another common way to say the same thing would be “¡𝗤𝘂𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗮 𝘂𝗻 𝗯𝘂𝗲𝗻 𝗱𝗶𝗮!”. – (𝗜 𝗵𝗼𝗽𝗲) 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗱𝗮𝘆!.  𝗛𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗾𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗿𝗲𝗴𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗠𝗲𝘅𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗰𝘂𝗹𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱/𝗼𝗿 𝗦𝗽𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘀𝗵 𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗴𝘂𝗮𝗴𝗲? 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗹𝗲𝘁 𝗺𝗲 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗜 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗯𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗽 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗼𝘂𝘁! 𝘄𝘄𝘄.𝗦𝗽𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘀𝗵𝗣𝗮𝘂𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗮.𝗰𝗼𝗺 spbaja5@gmail.com
