  1. I own two dogs and live very close to the two of the locations of these reported incidents. I want this to stop and the person or persons properly dealt with as much as any one. However, posting names is irresponsible and wrong. In past times this is how lynching of innocent people occurred. PLEASE IF YOU HAVE PROOF IT SHOULD BE GIVEN TO AUTHORITIES AND NOT POSTED ON OPEN FORUMS. Let's act like adults who are better than the perpetrators of these actions.

  2. "A" list parties, life mates for Mexicans..really.. We all live in Lake Chapala area...all very close. seriously get over yourselves. By the way the weather used to be wonderful here, rained only at night, only in rainy season, and was not cold...what now..? coats heaters, and hats..tons of traffic, and too many inflated egos! MOG

  3. Those poles look pretty cool to me. The kids must be ecstatic, seeing their work in a "permanent" place. Perhaps a "pro" job would be nicer to look at, but for me there are few things more refreshing than a young'un creating something original.

  4. Edited by Moderator because this entire post was a personal attack. I better not see another one like this from you. Just so we all understand, this section is for posting our reviews and experiences GOOD or BAD. Keep the focus on yourself and your experience. Try to avoid going overboard with criticism, use neutral language and avoid hyperbole either pro or con. Remember to post what you ordered, what it cost and observations about service and setting. If it is a new place, clear directions also appreciated. Thanks.

  5. I am going to suggest that you call the IRS hotline rather than ask a bunch of total strangers on a Web Board. Since the IRS can get testy if you mess up, best to go to the source.

  6. Because of the great reviews here my wife and I decided to try this place today. All I can say is what a surprise! We were the first ones there before they even opened today so naturally didn't have to worry about over crowding or loud music. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Of course since we were the first ones there we basically had the place to ourselves. The decor fit in nicely with the theme of being a brew pub. I had the fish and chips and I think they were some of the best if not the best that I've had down here. Large pieces of fish and not overly breaded. Fries w

  7. This might explain it - http://atxcatholic.com/index.php/2011/12/las-posadas-and-the-devil-at-the-nativity/#.WEiUwX3ivyM Not to mention that the same question was asked last year, this was the name of the post Why is the Devil a part of Chapala Christmas Display (and Human Skulls)

  8. If I fit this description and was named Mike and was not a dog poisoner I would be really in someone's face for posting this. Come on Mods, do your job.

  9. Marco continues to send his own weekly updates to his mailing list. You can ask to be added to it. The food is at least as good as Marco cooked it, sometimes even better. His family does him proud.

  10. A "horrible, visual blight"? That's very harsh criticism, considering these are children that are ages 10 or 11. Ajijic is a village where creativity and artwork can be seen everywhere, and is appreciated by almost everyone!

  12. So sorry to hear this. I was there a couple of days ago and he didn't mention leaving. Loved his pulled pork. I'll miss the little place.

  13. Just a reminder that immigration has changed their electronic notification system. You will get 2 notifications before you are ready to do fingerprints. Prior after one you were all ready to go. some people see the first and wonder why we dont call them to go in but we need to have both and make sure immigration is ready and some people see the first and jump the gun and go in to wait and find out they are not ready. Usually the second notification comes out a week or so after the first one so be sure to look out for both to save a wasted trip and waiting in line.

  14. Haven't surfaced yet. They did sell their indoor tables and chairs. I really like Jason and his wife, but I did not feel I was getting value for my money. Good taste, yes, but not value.

  16. If one doesn't like the discussions on this board, there is no obligation to either read or participate. Problems don't get solved by pretending they don't exist. Some serious progress has been made on many issues because people didn't stick their heads in the sand and instead came together via this board to effect change. You haven't always enjoyed life in Jocotepec and didn't hesitate to share that here. I don't recall you being labeled as a complainer or bitter person. Please do not in the future make those judgments and evaluations here of others. Locked.

  17. When we first started coming here 25 years ago it was simple. Chapala was for enlisted and Ajijic was for officers, with all that implies. Chapala is a city and Ajijic has been able to stay a village and wants to stay that way. The houses are more expensive in Ajijic because they are usually updated and up to NOB standards. 60% of Chapala's tax revenues come from Ajijic, but, the votes are in Chapala hence the focus of the politicos.

  18. I will shut it down but Rick perhaps you should counsel them to follow the law or just exercise common sense. Maybe you remember what happened to Tom's and I believe at least one other place that didn't understand that smoking in particular is the kiss of death for a restaurant these days? If the confined layout of the property results in smoke being trapped inside, it is a very poor idea to allow smoking even "outside." There's outside and then there's outside and a lot of properties here are so closed in that all of it should be considered inside even though a part may not have a roof

  19. Aren't you the folks who mentored them into the problem "other" than the food? Now the patrons are supposed to comment as though the situation doesn't exist? The new people could change their policy to align with the Mexican laws and then......there would be no problem with just talking about the food.

  20. By the way ... a fee is solely to deter those who may not have the best interest of the dogs in mind. I'm disappointed you think our motive is financial.

  21. Thank you very much for your concern Mark. We've tried catching her with nets, tranquillized her twice and even asked the vet to use a dart gun. Nothing worked although the vet offered to "fix" her as soon as she's caught. She's far too street wise and unfortunately we've been unsuccessful in every attempt. Now that she's in our immediate care you may sleep easy tonight knowing she will be spayed when the pups are weened. And yes, we do know about the alarming number of street dogs but couldn't bring ourselves to abandon the innocent.

  22. Yes, it's a pub, and if that's what you're looking for, by all means go there and enjoy it. I didn't know what to expect on that first visit. Silly me, I was looking for lunch. I was recounting my group's experience as objectively as possible so that people know what to expect. Others had indicated that the food was really good, so we gave it a try on our weekly dining meet. Regardless of your opinion of the beer, I call it overpriced at 50 pesos a glass for beer in Mexico. Just about double of most other restaurants. Matter of opinion re the quality. You needn't get snarky, Carivor

  23. I'm sure they won't miss you if you never go back... The place had just opened.. They offered you a free lunch.. They tried to make it right... But you still had to post such a negative review.. Just about everyone is saying good things about them.. I guess the old adage is true... You can't please some people any of the time...
