The food "Danger Zone" which you learn about in Food Safe courses states that the danger zone is between 45-145F, and buffets usually fall into that range. However, most hotels check there buffets continually because they are aware of the danger that they can present. Alot of the problem in Mexico is suppliers, you cannot be sure that they've done there part of storing raw product in the proper temperatures, and cooking something that has not been kept at the right temperature may not kill the bacteria that is present, or may not kill all of the bacteria that is present and hence people get sick.

6 feet in 1 year, only one of them was a leftie.....bizzarre. I am wondering if they could be from the ferry that sunk up north, but then again, there have been plenty of men disappearing from the lower mainland so who knows.

When we go to Mexico we are so grateful to be able to go...I mean there are so many people who would go to Mexico in a heartbeat that can't afford to go. People should see some of the places where the economy is worse and see how blessed they are..no matter what season in life they are in... Americans can be very ignorant to the needs of others...It's all about them...
