  1. Thanks Chris and BB for yet another great update. Not sure why the Mexican Army is recently kicking ass but congrats. Hopefully, at some point Mexico will get a reprieve from the constant murder,chaos and lose of innocent lives. Living in Texas, I want all the wonderful people I've met over the years to be able to safely go see their families again. And, for my family to once again visit this beautiful country. My heart breaks for the insanity brought to the people there. God bless Mexico and Viva Mexican military! Without the hard work of all involved with BB, we in the US, would be uninformed. In this case ignorance is not bliss. Gracias.
