No, I think maybe he's not... Explains a lot, if you think about it (just joking)!

Leave it to Goat to not like beer on a hot day.

Gin and tonics are good though, but you need to have ice, a glass, gin, tonic, and lime.

Too complicated. Just give me a cold beer.

Palomas are good in hot weather and they are made with Mexico's tequila!

It’s easier to heat a frozen pizza than to make a good meal.

Some people put in just a little bit of extra effort to make life more enjoyable/rewarding.

Tonic is truly an excellent hot weather drink! I reached my lifetime allotment of alcohol almost fifteen years ago, so I skip the gin, but a cold bottle of tonic is the most thirst-quenching drink for me.

Sometimes quenching the thirst is not the goal though, so repeated applications of cold beer is more satisfying!

Not a fan of palomas. Most of mexico makes ‘em with fresca, and taste is odd, and too sweet.

Debates about which is the best Mexican beer are much more important and enlightening.

"best" Best for what? Well, for an early afternoon beer to quench thirst like right now, I think I'll go get an ice-cold Tecate Light. :cool:


I also drink blancas. [ aka tecate light]
When gringo friends drop by they usually bring their own beer to avoid my beer. Bonus.

I've been on this board for many years. I've always enjoyed posting pics of birds but I am getting a little old and I can't "click and drag" a photo without a bunch of hassle here. Please make it easier to post a photo without having to go "here" and "there" to download a shot quickly.

I can help you with how to easily post photos from your computer to here. Just a couple of mouse clicks. u2u, email, or phone call... Whatever works best for you!

if it takes a tutor to learn how to post pictures, the site is not user friendly
nobody needs to be shown how to post a picture on facebook etc

all successful apps are successful because they are super easy to use

I agree with all of the above. But Baja Nomad is not an "app", it's a community.

I do not believe that ease of use makes a community. I participate in several successful non-social-media sites (i.e. not Facebook, Twitter, et al), none of them as easy to use as current social media, and their value and loyalty of their user base has little to do with ease of use; it has more to do with their being safe and civil venues for expression. Typically that requires clear, well-considered rules and multiple moderators.

It would be nice if Doug could upgrade this platform-- its main weakness is lack of compatibility with mobile devices-- but in my opinion that would be wasted effort: The principal problem here is social, not technical, and an application upgrade without accompanying social modifications, won't revive the community.

Baja Nomad's 20th anniversary is coming up. Time to shut it down? :saint:

Harald,
To me the steps are easy (and to others who have done them as I am not the only one who posts photos here).
Some people don't read the instructions or skip steps or just don't know I have made this guide to posting photos here...

To post photos from your Pictures folder on your computer:

1) Go to www.Postimages.org, make an album if you want to organize your photos to find them easily in the future (by date or by subject). No cost to use Postimages.org.

2) Change the upload setting from "Do not resize my image" to 640x480 (recommended for forums) or 800x600 (max. on Nomad). You click on the little arrow to see the size choices.

3) Click "Choose images" and select the photos you want to put on Nomad from your Pictures folder.

4) Click on the image you want on Nomad and click on "Share" at the top of the screen.

5) Choose "Hotlinks for forums" (down next to the last one). You can click the little box at the right end of the link and it is now saved on your mouse.

6) Go to Nomad and paste that link onto the place where you are typing on Nomad. You can put text in below the photo for a caption for your post and if you double space between photo links (for clarity), you can put several photos and captions in a single post on Nomad. You can click "Preview" on Nomad to check and see how it will look before posting to the board.

If you need to fix a post after it is done, click on "Edit" along the edge of your post, and change or delete your post. If you edit more than once, you can delete the previous Edited on tags so only one edit tag will appear after you edit the post.

And it’s “Political” to point out that it might be a result of bad policies!! OK, I voted with my feet years ago and got out of California! If you’re happy with $6/gal gas and brown lawns. Bon Apatite!


You wouldn't find me living in Yuma or anywhere in Arizona even if gas was $1.00. I will stay right here four blocks from the beach in sandy eggo where it's always 72 and sunny. Surf's up. Cowabunga! :dudette:

YMMV

Our first trip to Baja was in 2007, when we stayed at an All-Inclusive in Cabo San Lucas. While there, between watered-down margaritas and food tailored to gringos, we learned that there was more to Baja California Sur than what existed within our concrete compound. So we went back to the same place on a heavily discounted package, giving us the financial freedom to explore. It was then that we took a day trip to Todos Santos and fell in love.

We kept coming back every winter, but it was a week during July 2013 that really sealed the deal for us. The summer vibe in Todos Santos was irresistibly laid back. Who knew that one could find an "off" switch in a specific place?

But circling back to the OP, I read BN almost every day but only weigh in when there's a relevant topic - or when I post one myself. I try to avoid third rails like politics because that's not the purpose for this forum.
