A Cardinal 6 Bishops To Break Ground On A Unique Prayer Site In Todos Santos - Todos Santos, New Home of the “St. Joseph, Patron of the Family Grotto”. Cardinal Francisco Robles Berlanga, Cardinal of Monterrey, Mexico and up to six Catholic Bishops will visit Todos Santos, to perform a formal Blessing and Ground Breaking at the Catholic Church. The Blessing and Ground Breaking are being performed for the construction of the “St. Joseph, Patron of the Family Grotto”, being built on Church grounds in Todos Santos. The ceremony will be held on Tuesday, August 17th at 11:00am. Everyone is invited. Families and bakers in the local area will bring their best desserts to share with friends, after the brief ceremony is complete.

St. Joseph, Patron of the Family Grotto will be built on the east side of the Church. The grotto will include a bronze walk-around sculptured tableau of St. Joseph with carpenters tools assisted by the young Jesus (10 to 12 years old). Mary will be seated next to them. The sculpture will be over 6’ feet tall and elevated by a 3' pedestal that will allow the sculpture to be seen during Services. The Family focus of the Grotto is seen as unique in facilities of this sort. As a community wide effort, contributions are needed. Contributions from Baja businesses and fund raisers will be employed to finance this Family focused project. A generous contribution of property by the Hotel California allows this project to proceed. - Tony & Jan Gould, stjosephgrotto [-at-] gmail.com, 612-133-2272

More Bad Stuff In Your Inbox - Here is the latest batch of nasties that may be invading your Email inbox. Most are deceptive attempts to infect your computer with a virus. Some are money scams. All should be avoided:

Shipment Notification for Order (random #)RandomLinks to infected website
Thank you for your EXPRESS paymentRandomLinks to infected website
Your Target.com order has shippedRandomLinks to infected website

By now, you may recognize a pattern in many of these scams. They're all designed to trick you into thinking they're something they're not. I've posted a running list of these virus Emails on the Baja Western Onion web site so you can easily check for all the latest scams:
http://www.bajawesternonion.com/Email-virus-scams-list.asp
I'll also pass along some feedback from an Onion reader who pointed out (correctly) that almost all online virus activity is targeted to infect Windows-based PCs, and that Macintosh computers are largely immune. Nonetheless, beware of anything you receive by Email, and keep your anti virus program up to date. - Alan Thompson, alan [-at-] todossantostechnologies.com, Todos Santos

The Mean Streets Of Todos Santos - We are mother and son, not many years between us but we don't like much space between us. I had him when I was pretty young - I am only 2-1/2 now and he is about a year younger - but I have always tried to look after him. We once had a master who was very kind to us and we know he loved us but he had to go away and we have just learned that he is not coming back. Now we are homeless on the streets of Todos Santos and at the mercy of kind people who are giving us food and water. They all have many dogs of their own and cannot give us a permanent home. We are very gentle and loving and would prefer to stay together if we can. We will be so grateful and loyal and loving and promise to scare away any bad guys. We have both been rendered incapable of reproducing so this is the end of our lineage. My foster family thinks I weigh about 40 pounds and my little boy is closer to 60. maryann [-at-] bajawesternonion.com
