  1. I had two dogs/ They never went to a restaurant. They were better off home where they were free to roam and I was free to eat without having to keep an eye on them. Just like smokers who went to restaurants and stunk up the place and polluted the air it is selfish to to push your dog on others and also cause a problem for the restaurant owner legally and creating a loss of business for them. You may think they appreciate your business but how many more people would patronize a good place if no pets allowed and both you and the ones who do not wish to share the space with your dog could en

  2. They may take your advice on menu items, but should ignore it on pets and smoking. We enjoyed your food, Rick, a couple of times, many years ago. However, we did not make any return visits because of your incessant smoking and the dogs/pet owners, who you seemed to love more than the other potential customers. So, we voted with our feet. I suspect you may be giving the new guys bad advice on the “pet friendly“ theme, and encouraging them to break the laws of Jalisco, as well as chasing away the majority of potential customers.

  3. Okay, I've brought this up before and got shot down, maybe because I'm straight-out wrong, or maybe because I haven't fully explained my point. One last attempt: Everyone seems to think the reason behind MXN banks' requests for information from CDN bank account holders, is due to the banks' attempt to comply with FATCA (a US law) by either mistaking FATCA's requirements or assuming the bank holder is a US citizen, not a CDN citizen. However, over 50 countries have agreed to share financial information with each other regarding bank/investment accounts held in countries that are

  4. I guess you could go file a police report with the license number you have, but when you figure in the time you will spend, and the fact that he most likely has no insurance and very little money, and will say he didn't do it anyway, it is way more aggravation than it is worth. Fixing cars here is pretty cheap. I would just fix it on my own dime rather than have all that aggravation and maybe even more if you had to go to court.

  5. What a load of rubbish... As of March 2016 there was still access to the beach on the Bay of Banderas. Access is not wide open but there are many streets/roads that run down to the beach..

  6. Did you also happen to get a picture of that white car that backed into mine when it was parked in downtown Ajijic the other day? The only alternative is to report it to the police and give them the license number. They are the only ones who have access to that information. Mind you, they will likely tell you the same thing the other two posters did....just get it fixed, like I am doing.

  9. Dios mio. Another "dog in restaurants" thread. REALLY??? These new restauranteurs haven't even opened yet, or set their policy as far as anyone knows. Quit tarnishing the place prematurely. Maybe the two warring "doggy" sides could give the argument a rest for a bit....out of common courtesy and fairness to the people starting up the restaurant. At least wait until it opens......

  10. Wait a minute, nobody is responsible for a worker on their way to or from the work site. The worker should deal directly with the dog owner and the OP should not be involved.

  11. Poopsie Update #4 I went by today (Sept. 24) to talk to Dr. Pepe Magana to see if there was a plan to have Poopsie spayed. He said his problem was being able to catch Poopsie. I can see the problem. She’s tamer than she was—I pet her each time I feed her—but she’ll dart away at the slightest quick move. I told this to Dr. Pepe. I hoped he’d have helpers for this kind of situation, but it’s a lot to expect of him, for sure. Some of us feeding her worried that she was pregnant. Dr. Pepe says he doesn’t think so. To me, up close, although she’s put on weight now tha

  12. Being that I'm a gossips fan, I thought I would try the avocado club after church today. The staff recognized my wife and I write off. Since they only serve brunch on Sunday, it was limited to what we could order for lunch. So we had a breakfast burrito, garbanzo salad and a arachera sandwich. It was all good!!! I wouldn't trade for gossip's. But my wife really liked it so who cares what I think!!!! Prices are reasonable, portions are good and the service is awesome!!!!!

  13. I think that was a local "drumming circle", maybe not very experienced. I'm curious as to why people describe drumming has having "songs" and 'chords" both of which refer to melodies, not drums. Drumming is a deep ritual part of indigenous cultures and is still alive and well in MX. I wasn't there so I don't know if that is what it was. Good indigenous drumming is pleasantly hypnotic - if it is not pleasant, the people could be inexperienced copiers - some one noted they were gringos?? - no you don't have to check their passports - appearances usually are a giveaway... There used to be a

  16. That's not the case at all. He has made it very plain what his policy will be. Read his posts on the subject, and that's the reason people are back on the old argument. There are only two "doggy" sides: the "entitled" vs. the ones who follow the Mexican laws. The latter leave their pets at home.

  17. I disagree about Ejido = extortion. The vast majority of desirable development land left in Mexico is held by either Ejidos or large corporate trusts with clouded shareholders. When an eminent domain clash comes about (government seizure of property for the "public good") why is it always Ejidos that have to suffer, while private property owners and corporations are never touched? For the Ejidos, this is giving away their future legacy. Saying this, I know a real estate lawyer who also specializes in the process of converting Ejido lands into private hands in Nayarit and Jalisco. This is the o

  20. Well thats nice ficklepie when can I come over and block the door to your house? Oh thats different. No its not. Anytime you take another persons rights away it is wrong and this is wrong. I well understand everything and I have done some reading but they need a way to poke the government not the people. I have no respect for these people as I have no respect for certain movements in the US taking over city council meeting or blocking traffic. My rights are as important as anyones rights no more no less. Go block city hall and stop government. Leave the airport alone. I can't imagine th

  21. Dog bites are ALWAYS potentially dangerous. If the skin is broken, there is a good likelihood of infection. Don't wait to see if the wound becomes infected. Have your gardener get medical attention now. As soon as it happens, any dog attack that breaks the skin should be reported to the police. You can then go before a judge and get a settlement amount. If the person fails to pay, you can then file with the Ministerio Público .

  29. Those FMM cards marked 30 day "canje" don´t cost anything. The Mexican Consulate 6 month preappoved RT or RP visa attached to a passport cost $36.00 USD. I feel they need to give the 30 day FMM card to have people show they entered on said date even though INM stamps your passport. They can get a 30 day TIP, Prove you followed the rules by showing up within 6 months and will turn in the 30 FMM card before it expires at a INM office near where you will reside. Gives you a document to travel inside Mexico for 30 days before you are illegally in Mexico and if with a TIP have a vehicle legally in

  30. I guess I just don't get it! If the flies, mosquitos etc, etc bother you so much, why do you "dine there frequently"? To me, that's like going to a topless bar, complaining about the nudity, and, then returning! I guess complaining is just in some people's DNA!

  31. I have always heard positive comments about swimming at the Hotel Monte Carlo. Reasonable fees, I have heard. The hotel is on the lake side of the Carretera, just before you enter Chapala proper coming in from Ajijic. I think Farmacia Guadalajara is across the small side street from it, also on the south side of the highway. There is a restaurant at the hotel as well.

  32. This worker is not your neighbor. In my experience and judgement I personally would stay out of it for my neighbor´s sake. You will always have your neighbor around and the worker will be gone and if the neighbor knows what you did by filling the worker´s head with thoughts of grandeur as in your thinking just like a NOBer and others here giving you NOB advice including an array of moral or ethical thinking disregarding local normal procedures and customs you will be in deep trouble for patronizing your worker instead of thinking of your neighbor´s best interest and letting the two involved

  34. Just in case there are people reading this topic who think that the north shore of Lake Chapala is nothing but drums: I live on the far west side of Ajijic in La Canacinta, and it is quiet here, which is one of the many reasons I like it. The older I get, the more noise sensitive I am. (To look on the bright side, the good news is that my hearing is still good!). I love living where the moo of a cow or the whinny of a horse and the occasional toot of a car horn is the worst it gets. (Well, we DO have an annual fiesta, but I have failed of late to contribute toward the fireworks;)

  35. when the posts get uglier than the topic itself---almost unbearable noise----it might be time for the Moderator to shut the crap down!! but hey, i haven't been dissed bad enough to go totally to TOB . jajajaja here's some bad noise. yesterday i simply said "Hello, how are you" in Walmart and the dude blasted me with "DO I KNOW YOU??????" and i responded with something cheery while he boldly and arrogantly walked rapidly away. I'll take mexican noise over those kind of jerks any time of day or night.........
