Comments, Questions and Answers


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...

Phishing Emails - Please be aware of this type of email. It could appear to be from Yahoo, Hotmail, Banking web sites or other. It asks you to confirm your user identification and password due to the fact that the server has many inactive accounts and is overloaded. Do not answer or give out private information . It is a scam. Please note my email address has changed from "milagrodale [-at-] yahoo.com" to milagrodale [-at-] gmail.com - Dale Townsend, milagrodale [-at-] gmail.com


Todos Santos Water Analysis - Water Analysis Report: To receive a copy of a water analysis performed on a cold-water tap sample from Todos Santos by a concerned individual. Please email me and I can send you a copy. - Lisa Welsch, LWelsch [-at-] CBRiveras.com, 612-140-1414


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

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)


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


Lost Dog - An adorable blonde puppy about 5 months old was hit by a car, near the gas station outside T.S. heading toward La Paz. She ran away. If you have seen her, would you please contact me. - Marilyn Martin, redcliffproperties [-at-] gmail.com, 612-153-5354


Meet Girdie Girl! - This wonderful girl stumbled upon our abode in great despair and poor health. Terri has lovingly nursed her back to health including a full round of all her shots. She is extremely playful and happy and has proven to be a GREAT watch dog and what a wonderful pup she has turned out to be. Girdie is 5 months old and will be spayed in 2 weeks, ready to go to her new loving home. Please entertain adding this perky girl to your family or pass along to someone that needs a new best friend. you can reach us at 612-132-4731 or 612-133-5531 (from the US 707-320-2661) - Terri Mcintosh, terri [-at-] themcintoshs.com, Todos Santos


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.

Driving Baja - If you or someone you know plans on driving down - this is the book for you! The only Guide book written specifically for "Driving Baja", it is easy to read and gives you everything you need to know including crossing the border, road signs, distances etc. It even includes an overview of the history and biology of Baja and a dictionary (with pronunciation) to help non-spanish speakers to buy food along the way. - Rachel Mcmillen, rjmcmillen [-at-] shaw.ca, www.trafford.com/



Social Security For Your Domestic Employees - Are you tired because you can not pay the social security for your maid and gardener? I have the way to pay it and split the cost between you and the other house owners. You don't need a corporation and business to do this. - Ivan Martinez, mc_sc27 [-at-] live.com, 6123489664, La Paz




What's In Your Water? - Whatever it is you can remove it. Reverse osmosis, also known as "Ultra filtration," or "RO," is the most advanced water filtration method available, and is the preferred treatment technology used by bottled-water companies and desalinization plants. Of all technologies used to purify drinking water, RO provides the greatest range of contaminant removal. The pores in a reverse osmosis membrane are only approximately 0.0001 of a micron in size (bacteria are 0.2 to 1 micron, and viruses are 0.02 to 0.4 microns). Our multi-stage, carbon and reverse-osmosis filter systems with built in Ultraviolet sterilizer provide ultra pure water protection for your family. These systems install under your sink and work as a regular drinking water system. Just open the dedicated tap for fresh, pure water. - $495 dlls. Installed!

  • Removes Arsenic, Cadmium, Cyanide, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, and Other Toxic Metals.
  • Removes Bacteria, Mold Spores, Parasites, Giardia and Cryptosporidium
  • Removes Pesticides, Fertilizers and Organic Chemicals.
  • Produces Up To 100 gallons per day of fresh, pure drinking and cooking water.
  • No more heavy bottles and jugs of water to lug home or return to the store.
Know the facts before you buy, and don't be misled by unproven claims for so called "ionized" or "Alkalinized" water, or other magical solutions.
