Recent Article About Todos Santos In The L.A. Times - Todos Santos: All you want — and less — in a Baja getaway. Drowsy alternative to Cabo San Lucas offers serious solitude for spring break. By Christopher Reynolds, Reporting from Todos Santos, Mexico
March 7 2010 - Once upon a time, say about 1972, Cabo San Lucas was a sleepy little fishing town at the southern tip of Baja California. Then came the paved highway, the international airport, the marina, the golf courses, the raucous bars and well-heeled retreats. At the newest and perhaps fanciest, Capella Pedregal, suites this spring start at a cool $675 per night...The complete article can be viewed at: http://www.latimes.com/travel/la-tr-todossantos-20100307,0,1960236.story

Our Next Phone Book - Do you have any suggestions for our next Phone Book? Some people have moved-on and many numbers are out-dated. It might be wise to start from scratch with a fresh submission from each resident with a home or cellphone number? I agree with using larger type on resident pages. Some have asked for annual books instead of every 2 years, I would like to eliminate email addresses. Other ideas are for blood type (if it is rare) and someone thought our barrio-neighborhood should be included. Do NOT send any personal updated info yet. Please wait (see this BWO newsletter in the summer months)--- For now I'm just gathering suggestions while the winter residents are here. It's your book, so send pertinent ideas to Phone Book (by email) thanks, - Jan, Be [-at-] TodosSantos.me, Todos Santos

Seeking Early Retirement - My Working Days Are Over - My name is Azul and I am a purebred Australian Cattle Dog and, due to an injury, or perhaps distemper in my early days, I am no longer able to work on the ranch. My owners are too poor to feed a dog that cannot contribute, so I was put out to fend for myself. My rescuers found me starved and sick. Today I am healthy with a few special needs that do not affect my ability to be a good companion. I am clean and quiet. I bark when appropriate. I need help getting into the car but happily jump out for my daily morning walks. The weakness in my back legs keeps me off the furniture! My foster mom thinks I am pretty darn smart as I have learned to sit and stay and I am ready and eager to learn more. My breed makes me loyal to my family and I get along with the other family dogs. I have had a thorough neurological evaluation by a US vet. I am aprox. 2-4 yrs old and my weakness is not expected to get worse. I am healthy and ready for my forever home. - Marie-Rose Hagen, mhagen [-at-] shaw.ca

Still Missing - Lost Dog - Please help us find our dog! There was an accident on Sunday, January 3rd around 2 pm at KM 224 1/2 on highway 1, 55 km north of the Bahia Los Angeles turn off at Punta Prieta, in the Laguna Chapala area. The middle of nowhere.
Our dog was inside the van that rolled and when he got out he ran off into the desert and we were unable to find him after searching hours and days.
His name is "Pickle". He is a neutered, tan lab/great dane mix. He is very Friendly, but I'm sure very scared. He was wearing a collar with a name tag that had our numbers on it; both U.S. and Mexico. He was last seen by a witness, running west into the desert at km 224 1/2.
The reward has been increased to $1000 usd. I am willing to do what it takes to get my sweet boy back. If anyone has seen him or knows of anything, please let me know.
