    Why not show the errors in the charts presented?

    Few dispute that the climate has changed and always will. It was much warmer when Greenland was green. It was also much colder when earth endured the maunder minimum 1450-1540. The climate has changed since the world was created and will continue to.

    geeser- there's no point arguing or pointing out the flaws in climate changers' thinkings or beliefs. If they wish to display their ignorance on public forums, the only people they are hurting are themselves. They are best left ignored.

    " It's unconscionable to make light of what's going on in SMA.  "

    Liana "C", you are barking up the wrong tree. I have no reason to make light of anything Mexico-wise, much less murders. My comments were speaking from my perspective, without living there, but visiting and listening to the chatter on Civil_List and info from friends. Those 'Civil' people will jump on anything that is out of the normal and shag it to death.... but of course aren't really 'in the trenches'.  You are much closer to the problem and also speak/read Spanish.

    You have also misconstrued a tongue-in-cheek comment about 'traffic' and turned it into an unfair indictment of me for your benefit. Shame on you for attempting to make my comment a serious statement about a serious problem. "Under Seige"... maybe so. Doesn't fit my description but to each his/her own.


    From the way I read your comments, looks like she is "spot on" with her observations. Caught you with your panties down and now you are again trying to weasel out of it by blaming her. Man up sometimes and stop being a child that can't always have his way.

    With all due respect, I made no assumptions, and I did fact check. Dr. Garcia/Makaras Clinic put out print ads that listed 15 members of the "Staff" of the clinic.  A clinic is a healthcare facility that is primarily focused on the care of outpatients and is usually staffed by medical professionals of different disciplines. And the healthimage.png.d6972e16e42df0f71c894ebb3c5b74fc.pngcare professional that did not go to or become associated with the hospital had some very negative reviews over the last couple of years.




    That kinda cut his water off, didn't it? :D

    As we all know, I'm not an attorney, nor near an expert in Mexican law. However sometimes real-time experience and a little creativity can help.

    Here are my two points, and I'm sure someone with much more knowledge than I have will weigh in and help.

    Repeating: These are my experiences and opinions. Nothing in this post should be considered as legal advice or an interpretation of Mexican law. Always consult an attorney or Notorio for the most current laws/procedures. If you have time, you can actually research Mexican laws in English.


    Thanks, Eric, for an excellent post. Personal experiences like yours here make this Board very valuable.

    Many things have been known to disappear at lakeside following the death of a solo person in the house. Maids and gardeners are always blamed, but who really knows. Now property managers, well, you'd best have pictures of everything in your house you want to leave and make sure your beneficiary has them. I'm quite aware of "couch, table and chairs and lamps" being not what the deceased had left in the home. Assume the worst and take steps to prevent it.

    Wife and I personally witnessed a Notary taking cars and other  valuables from a house in Chula Vista when the owner had died. I believe he was trusted with notifying next of kin, but helped himself to LOTS before he did so. That Notary once bragged to us to come to his ranch to see his over 20 antique US car collection(2 of them came from that property, we are sure). We declined. He was wealthy, owning several houses, multiple cars, etc. He has since died. I can guess where he gained his fortune. We entrust our wishes to several people we hope we can trust, so maybe through one of them they will get respected.

    I read not too long ago that Mexico City is actually removing topes. Their studies showed that there was far more exhaust pollution (something Mexico City really can't afford to have more of) caused by topes, as everyone has to slow way down to drive over them- the longer it takes to get somewhere, the more smog produced.

    Doesn't take much intelligence, or much study, to know that those things cause a lot more pollution. Not synchronizing traffic lights causes a lot also. I find this a lot here in big cities.

    You can't tell Mexicans there is a better way, as they are always correct. :D


  7. It is possible that these topes were placed by the station owner, not by city hall. Happens, and unless someone goes to complain, they will stay. If illegal, no one knows who placed them, but they will come up, if complained about.

    A Mexican citizen with a US Permanent Resident visa or dual citizenship can get a TIP for up to 1 year good for multiple exits and re-entrys. The TIP has to be turned in before the 1 year is up.

    I was told you could use it no more than 180 days total in that year.

    Thanks for sharing. I am happily surprised that this is being allowed, without the person who came to the US illegally maybe 5 to 20 years ago, being deported.

    Some way you missed that deportations are basically criminal elements, at least that has been the case since the new administration took over, no matter what you have read from fake news.  Can't speak for the 8 previous years.

    We drove from San Francisco with a pick up and a car 3 mastiffs and 2 cats in July. We took it very easy , stopped early so we could relax and walk the dogs in the evening. We stayed in the valley somewhere and then stayed in Tucson for 2 days leaving the ainmals in an air conditioned kennel .  Then crossed at Nogales and stayed n Guaymas the first night. We had kennels for the dogs and cats and it really helped us get hotel rooms.. From Guaymas we drove to Navajoa and then to Tepic and Ajijic. We took it easy and walked the dogs a lot late afternoon. The kennels helped us get rooms in the hotels. People were very scared of the dogs so they stayed away and it was fine but I think we would have had major problems f we had not brought the kennels with us. We never mentionned the cats as the dogs were enough  to have to negociate for.. The dogs stayed in kennels while in the room so that was no problems     but we had to negociate quite a bit to have the hotels lets us in with 3 mastiffs..I think it would have been really tough for us to find places without the kennels. We stopped early in the day so we had plenty of time to find a hotel that was close to areas where we could walk the dogs. We were asked for the dog certifcates at the border  but we had everytng n order so that was ok.. The cats were ever checked.

     I drove the car and my husband drove the pick up. I was never bothered by anyone but then I had 2 mastiffs with me and people were scared to death  of them so t was no problem. We left early in the day and stopped early so we could go for walks with the dogs and relax in the afternoon. We had no problems.

    My advice with pets, stop erly and have kennels. We did not pay extra anywhere but we had to convince people  in several places tolet us stay, we stayed in nice places  no not tell motels and it worked out fine. We even stayed in the center in Tepic wit the 3 mastiffs..

    Was this trip this past July?

    We increase our maid/gardener wages yearly to compensate for the cost of living plus additional payments outside of what is required by law... We prefer to reward performance and quality work...

    All well and good, but the discussion here centers on IMSS, so are you paying that for your help? Whatever you pay your help will come under one Mexican Law or another in the Grand Scheme of thing, whenever they get their lawyer.

    It still tastes better than "nectar".

    Willie, I remember accidentally buying the Jumex or "Valle" brand nectar products when I meant to by the juices. Easy to do since the packages are almost identical. Then I started looking more carefully before throwing it into the basket. It seemed like there was almost a seasonal thing to it, where the store would have an abundance of nectars and no juices. Then it would cycle through and the juices came back. I hate the nectar, too.

    When you say "juices" are you talking about those whose 1st ingredient listed says "100%  juice", or something else? My understanding is that if those exact words are not used, then it is simply colored water and sugar.

    Hud, I've said in past posts that I come here for the entertainment, never for information. Watching you flounder around trying to look insightful is pure comedy gold. I really think you should consider a go-fund-me page so as to afford concentrating on this inchoate comedic art form you've created. Though, in retrospect, it seems maybe Gilligan beat you to it. Good thing for short memories, don't you think? 

    Actually, Mark, I posted that for your benefit, as I knew you couldn't resist getting personal with me (doesn't take you much does it, Mark?) :D  Someone here suggested you find a mirror, maybe you should take that suggestion, you might have at least a little success there. Not getting much here. are you?  Bless your heart, Mark !

    Today, we will be about 13ºF above the normal average temperature for the tip of Texas, and being above normal seems to be the 'new normal' in much of the country, in spite of the 'Seattle anomoly'.

    So, is that a new "record high", or has it been higher in the past? Everything is "relative" 

    to the time it is happening, or has happened in the past. Just willing to bet that it has been higher in the past, and may be higher in the future, or not. Time will tell, no?

    BTW, where we live in Texas, most of the weather records are from the 1920s, both cold and hot. Wonder what that means in reference to today?

    it is not a protest but and awareness rally about us all doing what we can to protect our environment and demand our elected officials do the same 

    I think the word "demand" gets a lot less consideration. Seen too many people laid off when they had "demands". Just sayin'.
