ROAD CONDITIONS 11/5/06--- Just arrived in
San Diego from Todos Santos. The drive is just fine. There are still a few
places where the asphalt was washed off, so just watch for the orange signs
warning that there's loose gravel, but it's not bad at all. Travel safe...
HOUSE SITTING I recently returned from the
mainland to find that my place, Las Palmas Casitas, is uninhabitable for me or
for guests due to dust, dirt,diesel smell and noise from the transport truck
detour off the highway.
Guests I'm sending elsewhere...now there's me
with swollen eyes, stuffed up sinuses, difficult breathing.
The work will
theoretically be finished in 15 days. I am open to house sitting or...?
with a flexible end point depending on your needs. I would be there every night
and intermittently during the day. Thanks, Janel Beeman
HELP!!! If anyone is flying down in the next
few days, I am desperate to get my thyroid medication delivered to me. I have
lost my supply, can't get this medication here, and the DHL package is stuck
somewhere in La Paz. Hate to impose this on anyone, but if anyone if willing to
bring it down, I can have it overnighted to you. It would be amazingly
appreciated. - ashley.self (-at-) yahoo.com.
PORTABLE PA SYSTEM
AVAILABLE - I have a 300 watt portable PA system,
microphone and stand available by day or evening for parties, receptions,
events, etc. Can also supply music setup if needed. Alan, 145 0364

MAILBOXES, ETC. If anyone is interested in
sharing Mail Boxes Etc. it provides a US address as well as secure delivery for
mail, magazines, etc for $320 pesos monthly. Three can share a box and could
share mail pick-up responsibilities in Cabo. Thanks, Janel 145-0213 or janelb3 (-at-) yahoo.com
Thanks to the Hamilton Family for rescuing
these two little guys from Punto Lobos last week. They are now at Mariposa's in
Pescadero waiting for a loving home. As some of you may not know, Punto Lobos,
the fishermen's beach, is where a number of dogs are abandoned -- including
puppies like these. The dogs live off of fish scraps tossed by the fishermen as
well as occasional dog chow provided by concerned Todos Santos residents. Some
do make it to El Refugio for eventual adoption. For more information on the
pups, write Debra (-at-) BajaRescue.com or visit the
Refugio's new site, www.bajarescue.com.
WIRELESS NETWORK We are looking for a
wireless network we can subscribe to or share. We are in Todos Santos on the
southern side, near Hwy 19, and do not have a telephone line. If you operate a
network, or can put us in touch with someone who does, please contact me at janningk (-at-) gmail.com.
WRONG ADDRESS FOR HOUSE SITTING? I tried to
