  1. David has quite a few. Clueless, Eric Blair, Nikolas Telsa (his spelling of course) and possibly more.
  2. I bet that next time I check this forum you with your tail between your legs will have already deleted this thread like you always do. Erase the embarrassing evidence.
  3. David I applaud you for your possibly good intentions but you always come up with big ideas but you also beg other people to put it in motion for you instead of you doing it yourself, kind of like your dog park idea. You are also very talented at coming up with shocking headlines to get more attention. Knowing your commentary through out the years on this board and your many alias. Most of the posters here fully realize you are just an attention seeker and relish to be in the spotlight regardless of the controversy. Good luck to you.
  4. Well honestly, seeing well behaved dogs in stores or in restaurants has never bothered me per se. I kind of like the pet friendly atmosphere that many places have here. But the entitlement that expats here express does rub me the wrong way at times.
  5. Well I have seen an expat looking lady in Super Lake with her small dog on a lease. And on another occasion I saw another expat looking lady walking around Wal-mart with a dog on a lease. I was shocked. In neither case did the dogs appear to be seeing-eye dogs. I think it was more a case that the Mexicans were just too polite to confront the gringas.
  6. Well I must have been astral traveling or having some pretty good dreams cause I didn't hear a thing.
  7. Wasn't it this morning we were supposed to have been woken up at 5am to a bombardment of rockets that usually go on for 2 hours or so to get the whole pueblo up and about in a cheerful and happy mood so they can get ready for misa?? Well this was the first year in my 11 years here that I didn't hear a thing. And I am referencing Chapala since I don't know what or how they do it in the other pueblos.
  8. There is a small Chapel near the CFE office on Zaragoza. Not the Carmelite Chapel but another one. They were celebrating the fiestas for the saint of that Chapel. They did a castillo there last night. I saw the crown of Christ shoot off and fly over my garden jaja.
  9. Melody I understand your pain, I also agree that the cohetes are one of the worst aspects of living in this area. But they are not so ubiquitous in all parts of México. But in this area sí. Mexicans are very polite as Widesky pointed out and very gracious hosts to us foreigners. But they don't appreciate foreigners coming to town to arrogantly try to change their culture and traditions. Mexicans are a very proud people and don't take kindly to Norteamericanos or extranjeros mettling with their way of life. It sounds like you live in Centro Ajijic. If you detest the noise and confusion but still love México perhaps you might be better suited to living in a quieter area like one of the many fraccionamientos outside of the towns.
  10. The search option can be finicky at times so try searching on google and adding chapala.com after your query. You might get better results.
  11. I live in Chapala and have never heard anybody call it 4 corners, that is confusing. Its just the light or intersection at Hidalgo that takes you to Ajijic. We like to keep it simple. Almost at every intersection in centro Chapala has 4 corners.
  12. Sorry I shouldn't naturally assume everyone is familiar with the layout of Chapala. I should have said follow any Eastbound road in el centro till you get to the end on Gonzalez Gallo that passes in front the Cristianía park turn right and follow it to the end. The Yacht Club will be opposite the primary school Colegio del Lago.
  13. Why is that? Any eastbound road in Centro Chapala can get you to the Yacht Club easily.
  14. Has anybody seen culantro being sold locally at any of the viveros or nurseries around here lately? It is an herb with a very similar taste as cilantro but it apparently doesn't bolt and can grow year round much in the same way a swiss chard would grow (as I understand it anyways) you only harvest the leaves you need and it keeps growing. I looked on Mercado Libre and for a packet of seeds it will cost 1000 pesos or more depending on the add. I thought for an herb that was pretty high. So if anybody has seen culantro for sell locally please let me know. I would love to try growing it in my garden.
  15. The penetrating power could also encourage the build up of salitre if not left to dry properly. Which is another negative.
  16. I agree, their new location will benefit far more people than their old location ever did. If you live in Chapala and need one with easy parking there is always the one on Pepe Guizar.
  17. And don't forget Monte Albán if you are into history. It was once the capital of the mighty Zapotec empire.
  18. Yeah I thought it strange that someone said you pay at the Recaudadora I was just correcting the spelling error to prevent any potential confusion about its location.
