Comments, Questions and Answers

Where's That Phone Book? - I have not given up. The 2009-2010 Phone Book will come together! However there seems no possible way to get it to the printer by Feb. 1, 2009. Due to extraordinary delays and circumstances (only one non-profit charity responded with update info) and new requests for Ads still coming in--- I have to relax and go with the flow.

Absolute deadline is now January 30, then I can finally begin to assemble the pages for printing. Free resident listings are still at La Esquina Cafe, by Casa Dracula, if you need to make a change/addition. Display Ad submission will cease on Jan. 30th. Gracias - Jan, jans (-at-) janimagine.com, 145-0685

TJ Crossing - Does anyone know how to get to the toll road from the Tijuanna border crossing coming South? Thanks - Martha

Horticulture Magazines - I have lots of Horticulture magazines from 1988 to 2004 that I no longer need. Lots of good gardening info. Anyone interested in some or all? - Celia Devault, heavenlybliss57 (-at-) hotmail.com, 612 152 0823

PROFEPA - We have a home in Los Tunas. Construction was completed about a year ago. We received a citation from PROFEPA in June that essentially states that we have violated the environment by building our house on our lot. Does anyone have any advice or experience with an issue such as this? We would greatly appreciate any and all advice. Jim & Laura Herrick jimherrick (-at-) fone.net, 970 749 0450, Todos Santos

Driving from CA. to Todos Santos late January. Can anyone give me suggestions or advice for good places to stay w/ cabover RV on the way? And what is the relative safty of the trip these days? Thanks. See you soon Guy Hamilton, guy (-at-) gha-corp.com, 707-696-3577, Todos Santos

Social Security - Thanks for the many responses I received from my question about signing up for Soc. Sec. benefits. Now, let me pass on some "new" news. If, like me, you no longer have a US address, you can call the Consulate in Guadalajara, 333-268-2139, and they can take your application over the phone! You do need to have a US bank account to which the funds can be sent. If you still have a US address, it all can be done on-line. I had no idea the Government was so organized, but I am all in favor. Jeep - Jeep Hardinge, jeepsurfs2000 (-at-) yahoo.com, 612-100-7672

Need E-mail Addresses - I recently left Todo Santos for health reasons and on the way up the Baja was robbed twice and my list of personal friend addresses was lost I would like any one who knows me to send me their contact info. Especially Angelique schorenstien, jocelyn and dee de matte and patrick coffman. anyone else I know would be appreciated as well. Thanks to all of the kind folks that helped to find my lost dog Hazel. Please send your phone numbers and e-mails asap so I can respond. Thanks again to all who helped find Hazel. Mucho gusto. - Taz Hansen, ohsotimoteo (-at-) hotmail.com, None yet, Todos Santos

Wildlife Rescue And Rehabilitation Park (Courtesy Baja Pony Express) - All wildlife found should be sent to the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Park. I have read and had calls that foxes are coming near homes and people think that means they have rabies. This is not true. Please contact us and bring these animals to us to heal. People are destroying the natural habitats of our natural wildlife and the ATVs are invading their areas and terrifying these creatures and especially the noise. Do not be afraid of any of these animals, call and bring them to us. A disturbing call tonight was from a friend that had a baby fox and out of ignorance had the poor thing shot to death. Stop killing wildlife and call a Wildlife Specialist. The Iguana that was told in the BPE was blind, was not blind. Only that his eyes were plastered shut with dry blood. After carefully removing the dry blood out of his eyes, he can see! So, please do not kill our wildlife and call us.

We just set an eagle free that was with us for nine years. His wing was badly injured from someone putting a bullet through it., but he grew strong and healthy again and we have a 700 acre park for released wildlife that is not available to ATVs or motorized vehicles. - Wildlife Rescue And Rehabilitation Park, LandsEndAnimalFund (-at-) yahoo.com, 624-143-0007, Los Barriles

Great Plumber - Just had clogged drain cleaned and new shower mixing valve installed by "Rapid Rooter" from La Paz. Quick service, very fair pricing and good attitude. Matt, retired LA Fire Dept.
