Comments, Questions and Answers


Fan Repair - Does anyone know of a fan (hecho in MX) mechanic? - Scotty Mclemore, scottybcs [-at-] hotmail.com


Receiving Mail - We have used Mail Boxes, Etc. There is an office in Cabo San Lucas down by the marina, and one in San Jose on the main highway close to where the airport/Mega roundabout is. You have a US address and your mail is only delayed about 2-4 days getting down here. It has been reliable for us, we get over there once every week or 2, and it even allows us to receive books, cds and dvds. It is not inexpensive...about $30 per month as I recall. Anyone also can send mail to the US, again with a 2-4 day delay, for about $1.50 per letter plus postage. I do not have the Cabo number, but you can call San Jose and ask them for it if you are interested at 624 142 4355 or 624 142 6075. - Janning, janningk [-at-] gmail.com

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for one week)


Could You Find A Home For One Of These Cuties? - With our local refuge now out of business (Thank you Mariposa for tending to over 1000 abandoned animals during your tenure), sightings of abandoned animals, particularly puppies, are becoming more common. One option is to take one north with you and place an ad in your local paper, Craigs List, or another bulletin board. Animal shelters can rarely keep up with the demand for puppies. While you need to take precautions in selecting a home, your chances of success are about 99%.

The two pups pictured here are already ahead of the curve: socialized, well fed, wormed, and with one vaccination each. They were abandoned along with their mother near Punta Lobos Beach. We can give you some extra support and some tips (no problem crossing the border or getting them on an airplane), and you can see the mother to get a picture of what the pups might grow to be.

There are part-timers here who have been doing this for years - taking an abandoned animal north and finding it a home. Lori and Ted have at least 15 under their belt. But the need is growing. Could you join the troops? Contact me if you're considering it. - Janet Howey, janethowey [-at-] yahoo.com, 612-169-4252

Dish Network TV in Baja California Sur - On June 18, Dish Network changed it's encryption method and shut off hundreds of thousands of pirated receivers and "FTA" (Free To Air) boxes. If you own one of these boxes and can no longer view pirated programs from Dish Network, or if your dealer is now "out of business," this might be a good time to consider switching. If you've finally gotten fed up with chasing after the latest pirate "Crack of The Week," contact us. We only install real Dish Network satellite TV systems with a subscription account. In many cases, we may be able to reuse your old dish and cables.

Also, you can now record programs and receive High Definition TV with an HD-enabled Dish Network receiver and a 2nd dish. PBS and the "Big Four" major Networks (ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX) are available.
