Thank you so much to Maryann Douglas for volunteering to help out with creating the Baja Western Onion. This issue is her first. Please join me in welcoming her to The Baja Western Onion Staff! - Alan, Editor BWU

ATTN SANDRA:  If you are still interested in the motor home and still can not send an email, please post yours here and we'll write you. - Ivan, iwantitgone (-at-) hotmail.com

Our September water bill is more than 10 time the usual amount. $4000 pesos instead of about $350.It has been argued at the water department, so far to no avail. I've heard there are others with similar issues. How many of us are there? It might be interesting to make connection for lobbying purposes. Thanks - Janel 145-0213

===========================================

I would like to add to your comments about the new Telmex billing system. To call long distance from the US (or other foreign country) to a Mexico cell phone you now need to dial 011+52 (country code)+ 1+area code+number. For example my number would be 011521612145-0050.  If you are calling from the states to a Mexico land line, the "1" between the "52" country code and the area code is omitted. You would dial 01152612145-0050. Of course this is a big problem since people may not know whether your phone is a cell phone or land line.

People should also know that this new system is called "El que llama, paga" Which translates, "He who calls, pays".  With the old system both the person placing the call and the cell phone owner receiving the call, were being billed for the cell phone costs.  Now only the person placing the call is billed, so you will notice on your next bill that your calls to cell phones are  more expensive. Hope this is helpful. - Elena

Re: septic tanks.  To get a testy septic tank pumped you have to deal with the water dept. and that can be no fun, not to mention pricey, and may not even be necessary. But it would great to find out who the best septic guy is around here for consults. - Gretchen

===========================================

Bomberos Gear Anyone who has contact with the Bomberos?  Doug and Lisa here, with some great news. Friends who live on Lummi Island up in the San Juan Islands have made an offer to bring down some used firefighting gear, the 'turnout' coats and pants from their Dept. Need to know how many sets are needed, and general sizes. There are twenty sets available, and the extras might go to another town.

They will be down in January...Let us know. We are in San Diego and will be back down the 1st of Dec. - Doug and Lisa, mamounatsea (-at-) hotmail.com
