What's Needed To Bring Our Bird To The Baja From Canada Wth Us For The Winter? - I would like to know if anyone has any experience or information available regarding the rules and regulations, for transporting our love bird with us for our winter stay on the Baja. We are from British Columbia, Canada and are looking at driving down this year to La Paz for the winter. We will be having to go through the States and the Mexican Baja Boarder then back in the late spring. Anyone with helpful information are welcome to contact me. - Gina, 2ginadd ( -at- ) gmail.com, Canada


ATM Theft (Courtesy Baja Pony Express) - I wanted to write and let you know of a problem that has hit a number of people in the San Jose area. Someone or a group of people are stealing your ATM card information along with your pin number when you use the ATM machine at Mega and Soriana. It is believed that they are either slipping a devise into the card slot to capture all information or attaching a device to the side of the machine.

Just this week our card information was captured at Soriana’s ATM and within two days they were able to steal $4,000 from our account in California. I have talked with two other people; one losing $1,000 and the other thousands within one day after using the ATM at Mega. While our banks may replace the funds to our accounts, it is not without having to complete a lot of paper work and stress. In all cases, none of the banks can explain why the banks were not alerted to the increased activity of the cards (as many as 10 per day) or why transactions were allowed over the daily bank limit.

It has been recommended that we only use the ATM machines at the bank as they monitor their machines throughout the day to prevent any theft. Susie ancestor ( -at- ) jps.net -


Attention Micki Quine - Your cell phone # is busy all of the time. Trying to get a hold of you. Please call me! If anyone who knows Micki, please contact her for me? - Eddie Phillips, (661) 431-3097 or (661) 379-2235


One-way Car Rental With Drop-off In TS? - hi! is there still a service that allows you to rent a car at the SJD airport, and drop it off in Todos Santos? coming in this Tuesday, the 9th. (or, maybe you want to give us a ride for $50 USD?) - John Logic, logic ( -at- ) snocon.com, 206.953.7720


Dharma Talks By Robert Hall - Dharma Talks offered by Robert K. Hall, Sundays 10-11:30 A.M. at La A.R.C.A. The talks are preceded by a period of guided meditation with instructions in the Vipassana tradition. Everyone is welcome. Select talks are also available online for listening or downloading. Transcribed talks are also available for reading at your leisure from the web site. - Alvaro Colindres, eldharma ( -at- ) prodigy.net.mx, www.robertkhall.com, 145-0676, Todos Santos


Car Rental - Does anyone have a cheap car rental to recommend? Better still does anyone have a second car they might want to rent for a week. I am a long time vacationer in todos (over 25 years) and most people know me. Our old car died a few years ago and we have not yet replaced it. I have insurance, can give you a deposit. Just hate those rental companies in Cabo! - Eva Gardos, gardoseva1 ( -at- ) gmail.com
