Comments, Questions and Answers

Baja Or Mainland? - I must haul my new (and heavy) rig down to the ferry terminal to La Paz. Although my truck is capable of the job, I hope to avoid the big hills, narrow lanes, the topes, and some of the bad asphalt of the Baja highway. I've not travelled the mainland toll road. Can someone tell me about the hills on that route? Are they huge and steep, or are they more manageable? - Jim Skelton, skejam [-at-], Pescadero

Vocalist And /or Bassist Wanted - Looking for a bassist and/or vocalist between the ages of 14 and 17.
We play a lot of stuff, but we prefer heavier music like Metallica and Sepultura. And at the same time we play a lot of lighter stuff like blink-182 and more punk oriented things.
If interested email [-at-] lanecope93 [-at-] - Lane Cope, lanecope93 [-at-], (044) 612-155-5156, Todos Santos

Need To Hire Summer Tutor - I am looking to hire a credentialed teacher (retired is perfect) to tutor my seven year old daughter while we are in Todos Santos this summer. She needs help with reading, writing-spelling, and math. I will be bringing all the materials and would like to have someone work with her two or three times a week for about an hour. We will be here from July 1 thru Aug 23rd.

More About Passwords And Online Security - Interesting audio story on NPR Radio this last Monday;
Catch the audio story on the page, as well as the related story on leaving online information for your heirs:
- Alan, alan [-at-], Todos Santos

Stranded Stuff - oops! Some things I ordered are stuck in Ojai (north of Los Angeles) and I am hoping against hope that someone will be passing by there on the way here soon. Are you out there? - Jane Sipe, 145-0110 or 612-151-7026

Todos Santos Volunteer Disaster Response Team - In the past couple days I have watched documentaries on the 2004 Sumatra Mega-Tsunami and the 2005 Katrina Hurricane.

One profound thing I took away from these tragic events was that we can NOT rely upon governments to provide effective immediate rescue or relief. In both cases, members of the local community played a very important role in the early stages of the disasters and were vital in saving lives.

So I am proposing the formation of a group of volunteers interested in coming together and beginning the advanced stages of organization and planning for a disaster response team within our local community.

If you would like to become involved, please call or email me.

PLEASE NOTE: The mandate of this team is in no way meant to act on a daily 911 basis, rather it is meant to take effect under extreme circumstances such as a severe hurricane, earthquake, flooding or tsunami in which local emergency services have become over burdened. - Michael Morel, MichaelMorel1973 [-at-], 612.14.77.300, Todos Santos

Restaurant and Food News

The Network This Friday At Buena Vida - "I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"
Network, 1976, Peter Finch, Faye Dunaway
In 1975 terrorist violence is the stuff of network nightly news programming and the corporate structure of the UBS television network is changing. Meanwhile, Howard Beale, the aging UBS news anchor, has lost his once strong ratings share and so the network fires him. Beale reacts in an unexpected way. We then see how this affects the fortunes of Beale, his coworkers (Max Schumacher and Diana Christensen), and the network.

We will start the movie at Sundown (8:10) - Jessie Rutowski, jessierutowski [-at-], 6121327668, Todos Santos
