  1. I should definitely stay out of this but I am not smart enough to do so. I find this pretty funny so here I go. I must be bored tonight. Let the flaming begin. I personally can't imagine asking a restaurant to measure my wine to prove to me that they are serving some pretty arbitrary amount that I have decided is "correct:. Has anyone really done this??? Wow. Never seen that happen anywhere. But that is a great idea so I am going to start asking restaurants to weigh my mashed potatoes, green beans and the slice of pie I order for desert. Here is an interesting idea. Maybe someone can go around town and measure the "pour" at all the restaurants so we will have a chart. We can then determine the cost per ounce, factor in the exchange rate for various currencies, and update it frequently, After all we are talking about serious money here - typically about $3 for a glass of wine most places around town. I have another well tested approach that has worked for me. I only order wine from restaurants in small fishing villages in Mexico where there is a credentialed sommeliers on duty. So far that strategy has been flawless. I've never been disappointed. I am sure that many of you will not find this at all funny but I think it is pretty hilarious.

  2. Nana, actually REC's sarcasm IS funny -- well, to some of us anyway. We don't take ourselves too seriously and forget that others may. You are missing the point. There is something funny about a person "trained by a master sommelier who has worked in many large cities (New York, Montreal, San Francisco, etc)" trying to apply her standards to a restaurant called the Avocado Club in a former driving range on a two-lane road in the middle of Mexico. They do measure their wine and maybe your way would be better but the way they do it works for them. I understand how you feel but still the humor does not escape me.

  3. Maincoons is wrong. Hacienda del lago has aquired their license and are open for business. i think its time to let it go and should consider looking for something else to complain about. Hacienda Del Lago is a wonderful restaurant with great food and an exceptional staff. come visit and find out for yourself.

  4. Same old, same old: things here are not going to change because YOU want them to. So, you have a choice: become angry, ruin your state of mind or go with how things are done here and live in a peaceful state of mind. Torito is not going to spend more money paying its employees to keep its posted prices up-to-the-minute current, Proseco is not going to come to Chapala. So, for heaven´s sake, put the darn item under the scanner and save yourself an early heart attack! The country is NOT going to change to suit your American sensibilities. You live in a country with different priorities, get used to it. And save the rest of us this useless complaining.

  7. Here I go again. My wife is yelling at me to stop but I am hard to train. I give her so many reasons to yell at me that I have a certain amount if statutory immunity built up. I'm convinced that she doesn't really expect me to stop but she still yells at me. I actually have been told by the owner about the "wine pour" training at Avocado Club and Gossip (same owner). He has determined for himself the "correct pour". Amazing that he didn't need our help. In fact all of their beverages are measured and consistent. So he has a cup that is the amount to be served and the servers follow a very detailed and extensive process: Pour wine into cup Pour contents of cup into wine glass Serve Their wine serving training used to take 3 months and included an apprenticeship under a wine pouring expert with decades of experience in delivering $3 glasses of wine. But they now have the training down to 12 seconds. Most of that time is "here is the cup". Last time I was there I tried to hide their cup to see what they would do but they had a backup. I'll have to find another way to annoy them.

  8. Woo! You people are getting a little argumentative,,,n'est pas? I thought this was the POLITE board! GEEZ, Louise! Do we need a THIRD board so that we can relegate you to the category of the truly disgruntled??? IMO the 2 boards that I post on are getting WAY beyond polite, not to mention that they are NOT disseminating useful info to those of us who would like a clue or 2 as to how things work here. I've been here 11 years and am still learning...but not from youse guys who are posting diatribes.

  10. This is truly brilliant, Harry. The single most effective protest there is against an unscrupulous government or corporation is to screw up their cash flow. Done long enough and well enough, they will come to realize who really has the power. It is the consumer. We do not have to stop buying or go without gas for instance. But if we buy in a way that interrupts their cash flow and they don't have enough cash on hand to pay their bills when they are due, that will get their attention and cooperation faster and more effectively than any other form of complaint or protest. Keep up the good work, Harry.

  11. My point is: THIS IS MEXICO. I have been here since 1999, married to a Mexican Lady, with LOTS of Family, and we have traveled Mexico extensively, not just the "tourist areas". Things change in Mexico, but nothing ever changes. When you have been here as long as I have and seen and heard as much as I have, you will understand. You can prefer all you want, but if you one day really decide to live in the real Mexico, you will then understand. Suerte !

  12. We actually have a nice restaurant with a small B&B in our neighborhood - literally across the street from our house. It wasn't there when we bought the house over ten years ago but it is there now and seems to stay pretty busy. Looks like it is there to stay. We have no problem with the business or its owner at all. However, we do occasionally have problems with very inconsiderate visitors to this business blocking our driveway. And some of the neighbors have trouble finding a place to park when the restaurant is open. This is a mostly Mexican neighborhood and no one - including us - has expressed any complaints or has made a fuss with the owner. Interestingly one of our Mexican neighbors calls every once in a while when they come home from work and ask if they can park in front of our driveway until the restaurant shuts down so they can find another place to park. We all just deal with. Life is much too short to get worked up about something like this. This IS in my backyard and I never really give it much thought. We still love our neighborhood and especially our wonderful Mexican neighbors. YMMV

  13. Loud vendors with crazy speakers, bad traffic light system on the Carretera that jams the entire strip from west Ajijic to la Floresta, shitty roads with so much dust and garbage, fireworks in the middle of the night till 6 am that sound like cannons blowing your ear drums, abandoned dogs free to roam by irresponsible $%&/()s, corrupted politicians that don't really give a damn about improving any infrastructure to stimulate the economy..... There are so many other things to complain before we complain about the "damage" a bed and breakfast that caters to old retired people is doing to Ajijic. Edit: word idi.ot was censored. Kinda made me laugh.

  16. One doesn't have to know history to simply look at Brazil, Venezuela and Mexico to figure out why government is no good at running energy companies. This ain't rocket science. What government should do, and nothing more, is to keep the private sector from forming anti-competitive monopolies. Even with a semi-monopoly in the U.S. the American consumer has the best deal going on energy on the planet. That is because the private sector does this work better, period. It always has and it always will. The trick is to keep the greedy competing with each other. I'll tell you what, I wish we could take every one of these pig politicians who like to start useless foreign wars and line them up at the very front of the battle line. I guarantee you wars would be very short and no one would be killed but them. To the benefit of mankind. The political class in practically every country in the world, and especially this one, is the greatest enemy of the people. Compared to the murder and mayhem the U.S. and Europe has visited on the Middle East, the so called terrorists are pikers. Look at some of the numbers of the civilian death toll in Iraq if you doubt this. I can't blame the survivors for wanting to blow the perps up, frankly.

  17. My wife and I have agreed not to pay municipal water or taxes as the local governments are complicit in violations of human rights and not giving answers, unfortunately they will probably stiff the lower end people first and not the higher up leaches who only get their jobs with administration changes. I have been lied to and had false documents with lies provided to me by the local government so have no problem with not paying to show my dissatisfaction with the corruption that is presently happening even though they have a cheerleader who poses for pictures with all foreigners she says she works for free although supports the administration and gives dumb answers like "the huge potholes on the main street havent been fixed because they have been asking for it for 67 years". I had asked for documents through transparency for some clients and was denied as well as asked for copies of permits and licenses and told none existed which is a lie and now puts them criminally liable, all for a dumb coverup for stealing money and incompetence, things are out of control and someone needs to fight for the little guy, the workers whose tortillas will rise 5 pesos a kilo, milk which will rise, transportation and gas. How will families make up this deficit which was thrust upon them with little notice... although the news is filtering another gas hike next month. So many want to pass the buck and say its not us we are a different level of government but besides stealing and extortion, where do the local flunkies get their money from? I mean really how naive can the people be with these Johnny come lately types who never had a real job and then within a short time have alot and who thwart all attempts at proper requests to see documents detailing expenditures and where money comes from. As foreigners dont march in the streets but also remember who the enemy is and use your wallet to show displeasure, there is no rush to make payments and you may help others who are poorer. If you were angry at the bailouts of US Banks that is what is happening here but with more egregious thievery and fraud with Pemex.

  18. Try a B&B, but this is high season and you may need to check a few places for your target date. You may not yet know what you want, but what you think you want may not be what you really want, either. My advice: prepare by making a list of goals and questions, talk to a variety of people, then do what feels right without committing to anything you can't get out of. Some people find exactly what they want right away; others decide their needs, hobbies, interests, and activities change and move based on them. Many rentals are available so you can decide what's right. Each of the many villages around the lake have a different personality as well as geographic points: close to the lake, in the village, mountainside, farther out, closer to golf or tennis...there are advantages to each. If you are interested in social or other activities in Guadalajara, perhaps allow some time to visit there: many people Lakeside take advantage of the many offerings of the city. A driver recommended by your B&B can help you there. Locally, you can walk, take a taxi or local bus. Bring sunglasses, good walking shoes, a light jacket, a few debit cards (in case the machine eats one; we are mainly cash transactions here) and all your meds and personal needs for your short stay (checking the list of prohibited items, such as Sudafed, which has landed some people in jail). Make photocopies of your passport, emergency contacts and cards just in case and put away for safekeeping. Pretty much everything else you can replace here without much hassle. We are fairly casual in dress and attitude, so leave flashy jewelry, high heels and a NOB attitude at home and you'll have a comfortable stay. There's a lot to love about the area, but it is not for everyone and that's OK. Enjoy your time here! For many, it's magical.

  21. Nana, you did not need to explain yourself. We should all tip what we want and can afford to. None of us needs to explain why we tip "so much" or so little (or even not at all). Also, I don't recall ever watching to see what someone else is tipping. Not my business.

  22. Yeah, the problem in the first place is that the foreigners here are supporting the corporate exploitation of humans by shopping at WalMart, a worse offense than shopping at one in the US. Do you think they'd be able to hire baggers at US Walmarts and not pay them? Of course not. But here in Mexico they will, because they can get away with it. Monica, you already have your pension, I'm guessing. Obviously the old 80-year-old ladies bagging crap for free don't. If you want to talk about being fair, then don't shop at one of the worst corporations in the world, doing all they can to exploit Mexico's labor laws, or lack thereof.

  23. Why am I getting shamed for tipping 10 pesos? That's less than 50 cents US! I'm not the first one to mention giving that size of tip on this thread. And what's wrong with having an oversized heart? These women are on their feet for hours, trying to bag items properly while the cashier is sliding everything toward them in a big heap. I appreciate what they do.

  25. I quit paying the bribes 14 years ago and demand the folio. They either give me a ticket or let me go so they can find a sucker. This even worked a couple of times on MX Hwy2 between Hwy and Columbia. I refused to pay and said folio por favor. The said since I wasn't local I would have to go right then to Nuevo Laredo and pay the judge. I stood my ground and we all turned around and headed east. After a kilometer they pulled over and asked again for a mordita and I refuse to pay. After driving another kilometer they pulled over again and I said boleto por favor and they handed my license back and said adios they did not want to leave such a great speed trap spot.

  27. Well - that does not fix things down here - it just brings on a whole new world of pain and anger. Like Italian Americans, some of these feuds and disputes are carried over generations in Mexico. Always over some minor event which started it all - and no one remembers what it was.

  28. First of all the existing noise law is federal and based on the coming epidemic of deafness. Guadalajara is preparing a state law also. Expats had nothing to do with that. Yes mexico is a noisy place and mexicans love noise. But, the proliferation of giant speakers , putting out decibel levels never before possible has made it a health issue as much as a comfort issue.. The prosperity we have brought to this area has given the economic resources to multiply the number and power of cohetes. There are sky rockets available today that are two to three times more powerful than any previously available. This affects our health, historic building integrity and habitat. Please wake up!

  29. Mexico is a loud place. People should realize that before they move here. You have to choose the place you live very carefully. I don't think petitions for noise reduction will do anything. Cohetes are a given and I don't see that changing.

  33. I am European so I probably have some idea how various nationality are viewed there.. No one think of Canada to start with..no one really cares one way or another about Canadians per say. Actually I know very few people who comment how nice a country is versus another.. The Russians are the bete noire in Europe now not the Americans, My husband is a American and I have travelled a lot with him in Europe and he never had any problems never had to stick a Maple Leaf on anything to get decent treatment.. Since we speak English when we are over there I often hear what people say about us and since my French is very good..I understand perfectly what is being said. Only a Canadian would notice if an American put a Maple leaf on their backpack. The EUropeans do not care. Just like some French guide saying , that the French are betrer treated than the AMericans in Mexico or Guatma, I have read that in some tour guide.. another figment of i a fertile imagination.

  34. Since we do not select our parents or the place where our mother happens to reside when we are born, we might question whether any form of patriotism makes sense. Furthermore, it has served as an excuse for many bloody wars throughout history. The only things we should logically be proud of are our own accomplishments measured against the gifts we were born with. One of the reasons I chose to move to Mexico was my admiration for their policy of not sending its military forces to kill other countries' citizens. I also admire their policy of trying to provide affordable health care for all.

  38. Poopsie has been spayed! Yup, she’s now child-proof. No puppies in her future. With great help from my friend Shelley we got her to the Ladron Clinic and Dr. Hector took over. Capturing her went smoothly after she was tranquilized, although she was scared all along the way. Shelley so gently and smoothly got the slip leash around her neck, pulled her/walked her to the car where the crate was waiting on the ground. Then our challenge was to lift the crate into the hatch-back, as it was now heavy for us. Just as we faced this chore a truck pulled up to work at the house across the street. I turned and asked the two men in the back if they could help. They jumped out of the truck, ran across the street all smiles and in a minute crate and dog were in the car. We were off. Marcos had been calling her Pinta, so that’s her name now. I like that name better and it suits her black and white fur coat. Pinta is now in her permanent home with Marcos and his mom who’d cared for her these past months. Her dog house is no longer outside at curbside but inside the gates and she’s officially part of this very nice Mexican family, my neighbors, for keeps. Lexy

  46. Please feel free to comment or point out errors or suggest comments or oversights How to Die in Mexico While many focus on coming to Mexico to live a relaxed lifestyle, nothing lasts forever and old age and bad fortune can befall us all one day. As Benjamin Franklin said the only two sure things in life are death and taxes. The reality is that the narcos won't get you (loose animals in the road at night are a bigger danger) and the vast majority of the deaths I see are from illness and a few auto accidents. Planning ahead will allow your heirs, whether family, friends or charities to have fewer hassles when administering your estate. Planning ahead means having a will as well as beneficiary clauses for your assets wherever possible and know who will handle things when you are gone as well as have your cremation prepaid and have a good relationship with a doctor who will be able to come and issue the death certificate. Here in Jalisco for real estate people can put a beneficiary clause to avoid probate and make the property transfer easier, the only restrictions are that you can only name as beneficiaries your spouse or parents, grandparents or children and grandchildren. You will have to prove this relationship when you want to change the deed by providing marriage or birth certificates along with apostilles or legalizations depending on where the certificates are from. Other states do not have provisions for beneficiary clauses in property deeds so you will need to leave a will. Most banks allow you to leave your account to beneficiaries if you die. It is a good practice when designating beneficiaries to name replacements as things happen and you may live a long life, longer than the first person you named as beneficiary. A will serves to dispose of your assets, both assets you have now and others you may later acquire. Also an important part of having a will is the naming of an executor. Many people put off making their will as they say they have beneficiary clauses or have few assets but an important part of a will is the executor who will fight for you when you are gone, as powers of attorney expire upon your death and the will then kicks in. If someone steals your property or embezzles your funds or if your death was related to an auto or other accident, the executor of your estate will be the legal representative to pursue your case with the insurance companies and in the courts. While naming your children as executors may make you feel comfortable, do they speak Spanish and will they be able to travel down to Mexico to properly take care of your affairs if needed and if there is a prolonged legal matter? A Mexican will, to dispose of property that has no beneficiary clause, if done through a Notary Public is registered in the national will registry so nobody can change it after the fact. A few US and Canadian attorneys living in Mexico offer to make wills but they are not registered and suspiciously in many cases the heirs never find the wills and later find out that friends and families of the attorneys now have the deceased's property. A will made in Mexico in front of a Mexican notary is valid in Mexico as well as in other countries. The only requirement may be an apostille and translation although we work with notaries who do dual column wills in both English and Spanish so that way all involved know exactly what each part of the will says. You may choose that your will is only valid in Mexico or worldwide. Generally speaking it is best to have a will in each country where you have property to avoid having to validate a foreign will and it is also better when having to transfer real estate. When naming people as beneficiaries, heirs, leaving them bequeaths or other items or assets, please be sure and check their full legal name to avoid problems when they come to receive the asset. Mexico is very strict with names and Billy Smith is not the same person as Billy James Smith. In wills and property deeds you can place name variations to clarify that a person is one in the same such as Ana Valeria Salas also known as her married name of Ana Valeria Mac Gregor. Also if you wish to leave property to a charity or legal entity, it is best to ask them for their corporate documents to see their exact legal name. Many people know entities by their nicknames or names in English but are ignorant of their true legal registered names in Spanish. Be sure to specify which office or branch will receive the money, merely naming the Red Cross may cause problems as there is the national Red Cross, Mexican Red Cross, Jalisco State Red Cross and one office in Chapala and another in Ajijic. Being specific will avoid disputes later on. After having a will you need to have a personal doctor. This will prevent your being taken to the morgue for an autopsy if you are found dead alone unless foul play is suspected then you will want to call the police. Your doctor can come to where you are found and see if you died from natural causes, avoiding having to make others fill out forms to claim your body. Your doctor should also know your full legal name (best to give him a copy of your birth certificate and passport) as well as your parents names and spouse´s name. This will ensure that there are no errors on the death certificate which are harder to change after the fact and which could cause problems or delays in the probate process. Your doctor will need to do something with your cadaver so best to pay a prepaid cremation plan with one of the funeral homes so that way no person or authority is storing your body until someone comes to claim it and pay the fees to take it to the funeral home. We have seen cases where the family or friends went on vacation and the body went unclaimed for weeks and had to be taken out of refrigeration. A prepaid plan where family, friends and neighbors know about it will make sure the doctor knows where to have the body sent and will not have to pass the collection plate around in order to pay for it. The funeral home will usually coordinate with the doctor, your home country´s consulate and the civil registry for the death certificates and the report of citizen death abroad. As soon as possible after the death the legal representative / executor / family needs to be notified in order to secure the valuables and important papers of the person. Police, "friends", neighbors and others many times feel it is their right to steal property of the deceased or that it is not unethical. Locks should be changed immediately and all property photographed and inventoried and nobody should be left unattended inside the property. It is amazing how many people abscond with property saying oh Joe told me if he dies to take all his jewelry and sell it. Getting it back is harder and if they bring items back, usually things are missing. Make sure nobody is left alone in the home and that it is properly secured and if police or others need to enter the home that it is on a strictly necessary basis and at no times should anybody be left alone in the home. To recap to die properly in Mexico you need to do the following: Prepare: 1) Make sure you have beneficiary clauses on your bank accounts and home (if your legislation permits) 2) Have a properly done will for each country where you have assets naming substitute heirs and executors. 3) Have a family doctor who knows you 4) Have a prepaid arrangement with a funeral home. 5) Have recently issued and apostilled / legalized copies of your birth / marriage certificates / adoption papers as well as those of any biological children who will receive property. 6) Have your executor / family / representative know where a copy of your will and other legal papers are as well as let those close to you know who these people are to notify them immediately. Let them know what you want done with your body or ashes. 7) Register that you are living abroad with your home country´s local consulate so they will have your emergency contact information. Upon your death: 1) Have somebody immediately notify your executor / family / representative / family doctor 2) Have your executor / family / representative notify your attorney and home country consulate 3) Have your executor / family / representative secure your property and assets and bar entry to everyone (except police and MP) to avoid theft of items or claims of possessory / squatters rights. 4) Have your executor / family / representative obtain copies of the death certificate, ashes, certificate of cremation and consular report of death abroad (first 20 copies are free so always request the 20). 5) Have your executor present copies of the death certificate to all banks with a request to freeze all accounts to avoid embezzlement and use of ATM cards, credit cards and checks tied to the accounts. 6) Prepare any probate filings and if necessary ask for a provisional designation of executor to fight legal battles in the courts.

  47. lol regardless of the ''correct'' meaning of the word, it has come to mean 'American' at this local. I have been told repeatedly that I am not a Gringa, as I am not American .... Before we refer to Mexicans as ''not knowledgeable'' it may be to our benefit to be aware of local customs and vernacular.

This is Mexico...not all things are fair or right...we can only do what we KNOW to be right and good and do our best to help. If you don't that's your choice...but not reprimand or shame those who CHOOSE to do the more generous thing! WE who have so much really must share and remember those who do not..... Or not...but drop the shaming remarks and attitude to those who do. Pappysmarket...you are comparing apples to oranges...regarding men who work hard for less, etc etc...this is about people not getting any pay by the exploitive Walmart...not about how hard they work or how old they are!!! Its very simple...human kindness and respect for others choices!!!
