  1. Barking Dogs, Stray Dogs, "Crappin' in the street dogs, Spreadin' the garbage dogs, Dogs not vaccinated, vicious dogs, dogs in a pack, Dogs not on a leash, Threatenin dogs on a leash, ie Rotweillers, bulldogs, etc. ALL a problem Lakeside. I lived in Tlaquepaque for 3 yrs, Union de Tula for a year, AND THERE WAS NONE OF THESE PROBLEMS...WHY no Problems (???), Dogs on a street not on a leash were picked up & taken to a dog pound

  2. I would suggest that you see a good rental agency and NOT move where the barkers are. Nothing will be done about that noise + 10 pups, or, for all practical purposes any other noise nuisance. Laws are in place but are generally ignored. There are many, many posts on the topic on this web board. Welcome and may you find a nice, pleasant rental.

  3. Lot of bad advice from CHILLIN.. I carry the Maximum liability available Call your Insurance Company.... If you leave the scene, you are breaking the Law, and if someone is injured(or claims injury). it will be harder to get you out of jail. Stay on the scene & do not converse about the accident to the other party. Call the Police, and they will complete a report. If you wish to negotiate, do it thru the Insurance adjuster

  4. Wow, all the lady did was ask if there were options or noise laws. Maybe she liked the condo a lot and was just checking before she moved on to another location.

  8. Sorry there are exceptions to every rule. In general it is a minor procedure. I am a RN with many certifications and have flushed many an ear. Usually with a bit more intense treatment than warm water and syringe. Again always there are exceptions to the rule. So rephrase for most people it is a minor procedure. If you have a perforated eardrum you need more than wax clean out anyway. You need treatment to heal the perforation, and sterile water does not cause ear infections. Happy you have found a specialist. You are dealing with more than ear wax!

  10. As far as general usage of the term is concerned I'd have to agree with Ned Small on this one, but it does get somewhat pedantic. To the best of my knowledge nowhere in the western world is a GP generally referred to as a specialist. The "G" in GP stands for GENERAL practitioner. When the medical problem it is too intricate the GP refers the patient onto a SPECIALIST. But as I said, that's general usage. But it does seem that the medical bureaucracy recognises a "Specialist General Practitioner". Check out the PDF pointed to in this URL: http://www.medicalboard.gov.au/Registration/Types/Specialist-Registration/Medical-Specialties-and-Specialty-Fields.aspx That's from an Australian Government website but I doubt you'll find much difference in the USA or the UK or any other significantly Western country. But after looking at the results of several Google searches it is apparent that for every argument supporting one definition, you can find an equally convincing argument supporting the opposition. Try this on for size: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1495225/ Personally I'll stick to the position that, in general usage, a GENERAL Practitioner is not a SPECIALIST.

  11. I did not post the info before as we did not know what it was for sure nor if it indeed carried any poison nor if it was intentionally placed. We have dogs always running loose down our street and cross street as we live near the La Floresta horses and several of the horse guys have multiple dogs. Those dogs sometimes go through trash bags, so what we picked up could have been the remnants of something dragged out of a trash bag up the street. Who knows? Both times when we found it, we went back out into the street with a shovel and plastic bag and gloves to dispose of the stuff. Both times it was dark and we were using a flashlight. Whatever it was, it stunk. We removed it from the street, which, I believe, was more beneficial than posting about it.

  12. Club Nautico has been in La Floresta longer than anyone who posts or reads on this board. I looked at the location today. No way this building can interfere with anyone's "view", and since it's on their own property, just whose business is it to question how they handle it? In my view, certainly a far distant second to the ugly and intrusive scale to that monstrosity on the libramiento that is part of El Dorado!

  13. I do not understand what your problem is . You checked out the neighbourhood and found something you do not feel you would be happy living near., so do not move there, You sound like the people who buy a house near an airport and than proceed to complain about the planes. There are some very attractive Frats and condo type places that offer more control over the neighbourhood that might suite you better.

  15. The law in case of accidents? How things work? Do NOT move the vehicles. Take pictures right away, of their vehicle and the other driver (s) in case the other party (parties) flee. Call your insurance company to have them send an adjustor. The insurance adjustor will tell you what to do ... and the insurance co adjustor negotiates with the police and with the other driver(s) and other injured parties. Depending on the municipalidad, an ordinary police officer may come first, and then in larger municipalidades, he may call in a perito (expert - specialist experienced office) to the scene to determine who is at fault. The peritos often try to settle fault & claims on the spot - where the perito + adjustors come to road-side agreements on whom shall pay and what is owed, up to and including determining who is injured and to what medical facility they will be sent ... where the at fault driver may be required to pay for medical evaluations and medical treatments. If you are injured, your adjustor hopefully negotiates that you be taken to a good medical facility (not just the closest), for good quality treatments. It can also be very important to have special fiscal bond coverage, with high enough cash limits to cover all the potential liabilities up to and including deaths ($3 million to $5 million pesos per person in cash, depending on the State), medical treatments, repairs to the vehicles, and damages to other property**. Some insurance companies include adequate fiscal bond coverages in their policies, while other companies only add the fiscal bond protection added as a special rider when the customer requests it. If we don't have fiscal bond coverage to keep us out of jail, we unfortunately can be taken to detention/jail (indefinitely) until the police determine who was at fault and whether the at-fault parties have sufficient cash to pay for all the likely bills/liabilities. It can sometimes take the police 1 day to 4 days to determine what the $$'s owed are, which can mean sitting in a Mexican jail, with no food & no water in the meantime. For these reasons, it can be critical to carry a good working cell phone while driving in Mexico, to allow you to call your family or friends to bring you food & water in jail ... and to call your insurance adjustor to negotiate for you & represent you. The whole roadside post-accident process can take 2 hrs to 3 hrs. **One friend of ours has a Mexican wife who occassionally gets in fender benders. Her latest collision included hitting a roadside paleteria stand. The little roadside stand included a small freezer, that the owner initially wanted $2,000 pesos to fix the freezer. Unfortunately, after an hour of roadside negotiations, the fruit-drink paleta stand decided they wanted $7,000 pesos. ... It turned out that their 'primo' auto insurance plan did NOT include replacing or fixing a fridge or a wooden stand ... so ... she went to jail for the night. ... Her husband brought her food & water, which she shared with other less-prepared arrestees. She came out very happy the next morning, declaring that the women had pooled the food & beverages, and had a pajama party / all-night-gab-fest ... announcing that she had 5 new friends.

  16. What if the other party has no insurance - extremely likely. If Qualitas didn't have another insurance company to send their bill to, you will find their attitude will change very quickly. First of all they would point out that your vehicle lost 25% in value the moment it left the lot. No one could possibly turn a profit in providing insurance where the payouts far outweigh the premiums. Like I have said, fear and intimidation does not work in Mexico, even, or maybe especially, against the vicious, sociopathic cartels. The result is a widespread disrespect for the rule of law. Even the most positive politicians forecast that it might be up to another 15 years before anything like the rule of law is established in Mexico. Hold your nose, and go with the flow, seems to be the way things work around here and all over Mexico. Do you think you can change anything by being a model citizen - HAH! Just work on being a good Father and Mother to your children, family and community -that's about as good as it's going to get right now.

  17. Just go into Webb County in Laredo and for a few bucks get a 30 day temp plate and you'll be good to go - at least for 30 days. Their County office there is very efficient and easy to deal with, just take your title along with you.

  22. My understanding is, if there are injuries in the other car, you go to jail until fault is placed & insurance is confirmed.

  24. His own bio states he is not a specialist as no GP is. They have no extra training and none that I know of claim to be on the same level as Cardiologists,Orthopedic Surgeons,Ophthalmologists and even [gasp] Proctologists and many other real specialists.All his high fee of 600pesos does is reflect that he wishes to charge as close as he can to what he did NOB and it does not reflect his expertise in any way shape or form. I am sure there are many Mexican trained physicians here who are equal to and or superior. I knew a Husband and wife team of doctors who were well know because they were researchers with the Banting institute and their son came to University of Guadalajara for his training beginnings because it's a world renowned school of medicine. He ended up staying in Mexico.Y ou have been here for a while Lexy so have you been to him and a few other GP'S here that you can compare him to. Some GP's take additional courses in areas that interest them but don't do the extra years and internships that allows them to use a term like specialist. Dr. Lastra is an example of that as he decided to be known for the treatment of pain which he is very good at having taken a lot of extra courses to make him competent in that endevour.

  27. Where did you here that from? As I'm sure everyone here knows and has experienced, often times people tend to invent things here when they don't know. The new property is still having finishing touches put on it after a HUGE renovation including building several entirely new rooms and a spa. The website is down because we are not yet able to provide accurate post construction photography. The website, Facebook, etc all goes right along with the new Hacienda. This is why we have gone though Google, Facebook, and travel websites to delete the old photos. We have completely deleted the hotel trip advisor page so that we will start new with reviews that have nothing to do with the old property as we do not want to mislead anyone. The new owners infact purchased the entire business down to the inventory of shampoos and linens. As some people have been quick to point out, there is not a lot of on street parking. There will be valet parking offered free of charge. Once we have a finished product to present, the website will be back up and we will start taking reservations again.

  30. I have spoken my opinion on here before about vigilante justice. When we have done everything we can to stop this the right way with no results , we have to take the law into our own hands , just like the Mexican priest, Miguel Hidalgo y Costillo did to start the Mexican revolution against Spain ! Us and only us really care about this and we have to stop crying about why Mexican law won't do anything. Lets get this worthless POS on our own !!

  31. The problem with the OP getting a South Dakota title and plates is..... he said he no longer has a place of residence in the US. South Dakota will not, to my knowledge and I get all my titles/plates there, mail to anywhere out of the country. Now they WILL send to a mail-forwarding address that is in the US and the recipient will sooner or later get the title/plates but that may not be an option for the OP. If the OP does go this route, I would definitely drive to the border with the expired Nebraska plates and like RVGringo suggest, turn in/cancel the TIP and THEN put the SD plates on. Some may say this (driving with expired US plates in Mexico) is asking for at least a mordida problem but I personally would rather have that situation than driving with a TIP that says Nebraska when my car plates say South Dakota. YMMV P.S. Getting the plates/registration out of SD (Clay County for sure) takes very little time at all. It is the Title that comes out of the State Revenue Office that takes 'forever' these days. But the OP only needs the plates and a registration card, even to get another TIP coming back into Mexico. The title will show up 'sooner or later'. P.P.S. If one crosses in Texas, I 'think' that, after crossing, one can drive directly to a Texas DMV office, tell them you are trying to transit out of Texas with an expired non-Texas plate, and they will give one a temporary plate. I have done this once before (and I'm STILL on their mailing list!) and had to tell them my exact route and time-table driving through Texas. This may also be available in other states but I just don't have that knowledge.
