Comments, Questions and Answers

Flying Frontier To Denver 5/8 ? - The plane is full, so, with so many folks, I am hoping that someone can help me take a puppy in her crate from SJD to Denver on Frontier Airlines on 5/8. Just to check her in. They only allow two crates per person and I've already got 2 crates with me. This little stray has a home in Colorado if we can get her there. I'll be at the airport early that morning to check in. It's all paid for, the crate, the vet, the ticket price. Just need a person to check her in as theirs. No $$, no responsibility. I'll be on the flight and pick her up at customs in Denver. Please email - Lori Seipel, loriandted [ -at- ], 612 148 6932

Honey Bees Wanted - I am interested in having a bee hive at my home in Pescadero. If you have honey bees for sale, or know of someone who does, please email me. Thanks, Belinda - Belindamcander [ -at- ], Pescadero

Hotel Suggestion For La Paz?? - We used to enjoy that older hotel in La Paz (the one that got closed due to the workers strike) and would like to spend a night there in early May. any suggestions? A heated pool is what we're looking for. - John, logic [ -at- ]

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

Found April 19th . Dog - Actually, this dog found me today. A very dark brown, almost black, medium size female, about 1 to 3 years old wearing a plaid well worn thin collar showed up at my jewelry stand at Cafelix. I sent her away and she returned and slept all day under my table. I finally fed and watered her as she was obviously lost. While putting my things into the car, she jumped in. We asked around and drove around and finally found some wonderful folks to care for her for the short term. If she belongs to you, kindly contact us so we can arrange for you to be reunited. She has a very sweet disposition even in the face of our female begin quite aggressive towards her. Is she yours?

Sales and Services

Spring Cleaning - Weather Protection And Maintenance - We all forget to do this for our stuff sitting outside. This is a reminder that any metal outside in Baja California Sur is prone to severe corrosion, especially the closer you are to salt water. Even galvanized hardware will suffer damage in this environment. All equipment outside should be inspected and maintained at least annually, if not every six months to prevent permanent damage from salt spray and corrosion.

We have seen some Satellite TV and Internet dish hardware so badly damaged that the bolts were frozen and snapped off when we tried to loosen them. Corrosion will also weaken the anchor bolts holding antenna bases or solar panel supports to the roof. If you have a satellite TV or Internet dish located outside, now is the time to inspect your gear before the summer rains and winds arrive. We offer spring maintenance services, and will inspect, clean and repair your outdoor gear as needed:

Summer Dish Tune Up Special - $75.00 US Per Dish *

(* charge for travel time to remote locations not included)

A few dollars for preventative maintenance now is far cheaper and better than replacing damaged or lost gear later. Maintenance service is also available for solar electrical panels and supports. Please contact us for an appointment. - Alan Thompson, Todos Santos Technologies, alan [ -at- ],, 530-903-4257/612-145-0364, Todos Santos
