OK, just got back from Banorte after signing up for banking online. A few notes; you need a Peso Account. This doesn't work for dollar accounts. Luis told me to come back Monday to complete the process and get the little key fob token. - Alan
RE: Wells Fargo Question from Tom Gafford, my email address

Starting in 2007, all passengers traveling by air to or from the United States will be required to hold a valid passport. Currently the U.S. Department of State is estimating that this new requirement will go into effect on January 8, 2007.
This new requirement applies to all passengers, including U.S. citizens, traveling to and from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and the Caribbean.
When planning international travel, please be sure that you are in possession of all required documents for both outbound and return flights. Remember to allow ample time for acquiring official travel documents.
For complete information on the U.S. Department of State's New Travel Initiative Requirements, please visit http://travel.state.gov/travel/cbpmc/cbpmc_2223.html - Cary Gray
Some of you may not have time to get your passport before the deadline. If you're crossing the border without a passport, you'll probably still get in with proper identification but be prepared to go through "secondary inspection" until they determine you really are who you say you are. - BWU
New Winegard 1.0 Meter satellite TV dish antennas still in boxes for less coconuts than I paid for them. Also, I have some used dishes and DirecTV receivers - Alan, 612 117 0484
TO ALL BOMBERO NUMBER SUBSCRIBERS
You may know that Poncho has, for personal reasons, resigned from the Bomberos after many years of selfless and dangerous work with the Bomberos. What this means to all subscribers is that the phone number on your cards is no longer valid. Please email Sylvia at sasinbaja (-at-) yahoo.com or phone her at 145-0563 for the new number. There will now be 2 numbers.
Also, please remember that December is the annual renewal month and there will be a notice soon about how, when and where. Thank you all!! - Sylvia St.Clair
RE MAC USERS
There are a lot more Mac users in Todos Santos these days and I'm not aware of any limitations (except for Patrick Coffman's jammed Mail program). Safari is a great browser, but isn't always compatible with every web site so I suggest using Firefox or IE. You'll be able to connect via airport at internet cafes in TS, but do bring a DSL cable just in case the wireless connection is down. I do highly suggest bringing an external hard drive and software to back up all your files. If you have a .Mac account you can download the Backup software and it's included with membership. Also remember to bring your reinstall CD's just in case you need to reinstall. I haven't had to reinstall, but I did trash my Mail program by accident. Since I back up frequently, I was able to reinstall the program and I was back in business within a few minutes. best, - Alvaro Colindres http://www.eldharma.com/alvaro.htm
Also, always plug your Mac or PC into a voltage regulator (not those cheap surge strips) to filter out the nasty spikes and brownouts CFE has in their power. - Alan
MORE BUG WAR
If you are having trouble with ants, try placing a few fabric softener sheets in the area where they are bothering you. It works! Put them in your RV food cabinets and also at home. Ants will not come into any cabinet that has a dryer sheet in it (and it keeps them fresh smelling!)
You can also rub them on your exposed skin before going outside to repel mosquitoes, bees and other insects. Fabric softener sheets also repel mice!
For other surprising household uses for these sheets, go here:

In recommending a full house water purification system to a subscriber to the BPE, I also advised him to make sure to tell his insurance agent when he has it installed to add to his homeowners policy, because equipment on the roof (or anywhere outside the home) needs to be specified with a $ value to be covered. Also note, companies may soon require that if solar equipment is to be included in a policy, that it be professionally installed with proof by a receipt or factura in the event of a claim as there was considerable loss to solar panels with Hurricane John, although panels professionally installed suffered very few losses. - Cathie Smith insurance agent cathie (-at-) caboinsurance.com
