Total Lunar Eclipse throughout North America - From Dec 20. Monday, starting around 10:27 PM MST, and ending at 4:06 AM MST. Maximum eclipse at 1:17 AM, MST. A total eclipse of the Moon occurs during the early morning hours of December 21, 2010 (for observers in western North America and Hawaii, the eclipse actually begins on the evening of December 20). The entire event is visible from North America, Greenland and Iceland. Western Europe will see the beginning stages of the eclipse before moonset while western Asia will get the later stages after moonrise. During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colorful appearance from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and (rarely) very dark gray.

An eclipse of the Moon can only take place at Full Moon, and only if the Moon passes through some portion of Earth's shadow. The shadow is actually composed of two cone-shaped parts, one nested inside the other. The outer shadow or penumbra is a zone where Earth blocks some (but not all) of the Sun's rays. In contrast, the inner shadow or umbra is a region where Earth blocks all direct sunlight from reaching the Moon. (Source: MrEclipse.com www.mreclipse.com/LEdata/TLE2010Dec21/TLE2010Dec21.html)


How To Start Counseling In BCS? - Hola. I'm considering opening up a part-time "brief therapy" counseling service in Todos or Pescadero for three months out of the year (until I retire and am there 6-9 months of the year). I have the necessary education and 28 years of experience, a practical and integrative approach, including CBT, and would see adults for almost any mental health or life issues -- including adults with alcohol or other substance issues, as long as they are in AA and staying clean. I would also see couples. I would serve the Gringo community as my Spanish is poor. Is this even feasible? Is there a need? How would I go about getting a business license or the equivalent? Getting okayed to work there? Getting a tax ID? Would I have to employ an accountant year-round? - Jolyn Wells-moran, jwmcounseling [ -at- ] yahoo.com, wellsmorancounseling.bravehost.com, Todos Santos

Fishing Tackle Lost At San Pedrito - Hello, I was fishing in my boat near San Pedrito beach and my tackle box went over board in the waves in front of the Pescadero surf hotel. If you find some trolling lures and or other fishing tackle including a grey tackle box please give me a call or e-mail. Thank you very much in advance for your honesty. Sincerely, David

Hola, Yo estaba pescando en mi barco cerca de la playa de San Pedrito y mi caja de los trastos se fue por la borda en las olas en frente del Hotel Surf Pescadero. Si usted encuentra alguna señuelos y trolling o pesca frente a otros como un gris caja de los trastos por favor me dan una llamada o correo electrónico. Muchas gracias de antemano por su honestidad. Atentamente, David - David, annointingyou [ -at- ] yahoo.com, 612 149-8787, Todos Santos


Home Invasion Update ( Final ) - This will hopefully be my last contribution to the BWO regarding my recent experience in Mexican and Todos Santos Law and Order : Lic.Jose Gpe Higuera Espinoza has requested that I convey the message that they are dedicated to providing law and order to the Mexican and non Mexican community within his jurisdiction. It covers the area from South of El Carrizal and down to K 90 to the South. The local office must provide these services to Todos Santos, La Matanza and the many small ranchos within his area, with the limited resources of 2 officers, Comandante Irigoya, 1 secretary and a Secretary trainee. He requests that property crimes complaints must be made by the owner of the property list and description of the items missing. In my case the list and description made the eventual arrest possible as the thief still had most of the loot.

As a final point, although I initially thanked my kind neighbor, Jocelyn Mathe for promptly recovering my passport from a cactus patch, My sincere gratitude as he has saved me much grief and frustration in replacing a lost passport. FIN - Art Rivera, chabraz [ -at- ] hotmail.com, 612 155 3389


What Is The Tax Amount That A Restaurant Can Charge You??? - I'm confused!! On my recent visit over the Thanksgiving Holiday I went out to several restaurants in Todos Santos. I was charged different taxes in every single place and none in others. For example: [Restaurant 1] NO TAX on a $120 dls. bill. [Restaurant 2] 28% tax on a $88 dls bill. [Restaurant 3] 23% on a $55 dls. bill. [Restaurant 4] 28% tax on a $150 dls bill. ??? So in every place that I asked I was told that that was the tax and no one really explained anything to me. isn't the tax supposed to be 11%? and aren't restaurants not supposed to add tax to their listed prices?? Can anyone out there tell me what is up?? Why is one place not charging anything and other charging huge taxes? - Helen Majors, hmjc1973 [ -at- ] hotmail.com

Stepping Out - Food and Entertainment


Cultural Purpose Dinners at Café Todos Santos - We are happy to present a new program of food and entertainment at Café Todos Santos. It is a full calendar of dinners with a cultural purpose: the study and enjoyment of dishes with a different history, philosophy and cooked in different styles.

The purpose is a journey through different worlds and different ways to prepare and cook, so that a dinner becomes not only fulfilling for the stomach, but also a pleasure for the eye, the nose and the taste buds. The program will last the whole winter season to March 2011. It will take place four nights a week and so divided:

Tuesdays: Meat Dishes

Wednesdays: Pasta

Thursdays: Vegetarian

Fridays: Seafood.
Each night will introduce dishes cooked in many different ways, using local products and transforming simple staple in culinary treasures. Exclusive does not mean expensive; the dinner includes a single dish, composed of two, three or more variations. A vegetarian night, for instance, could be dedicated to the discovery of different chilies, prepared and cooked in different styles. A “meat” night could highlight the use of skewer, to roast pigs, chicken, and ducks. A “fish” night could be dedicated to frying styles and a “pasta” night could include several types of pasta, mirroring the different character of Italian regions.

If the Mediterranean is considered the cradle of civilization, its cuisine, the real one, will be our guide. So, in the course of the nights, we could organize wine or olive oil tasting.

Dinner will start at 18:00 to 20:30 and reservation is recommended, only 20 seats available. The cost will be of 150 Mex$, not including beverages, service and taxes. For reservations, contact Café Todos Santos - Angelo Dal Bon, angelodalbon [ -at- ] gmail.com, 6121450274, Baja California Sur

Anchor Storage Bravo!!! - I returned to Todos Santos from the states yesterday after being in Michigan with my daughter for 6 months. I left Todos Santos in June for a 3 month vist to see family and friends. While in Michigan I went to see an orthopedic surgeon about the problem I was having in my left shoulder. I needed a total shoulder replacement. I had the surgery in September and physical therapy afterwards 3 times a week until returning to Mexico on December 8th. The reason for this referral to Anchor Storage is to tell you all how incredibly kind and generous they were to me when I needed help keeping my worldly possessions in their care for 3 months longer than I anticipated. I was able to negotiate a sweet arrangement with them for the balance of the time I needed for them to take care of my property. Since theirs is a new business and building strongly I want to help them get more business by telling everyone what a wonderful experience I had using their facility close to the Cabo airport. Although I did not need to be picked up because a friend came to Cabo to get me and follow me back in her vehicle just in case my Jimmy had problems. Anchor Storage offered to shuttle me from the airport to the facility free of charge. My vehicle had some problems starting and needed 2 1/2 quarts of oil, air in almost flat tires. Ana and Gabriel served me well and helped get me on the road to home. Bravo, Anchor Storage. I recommend their service to everyone needing to store their vehicles, boats, trailers, RVs. There is 24 hour 7 day a week security on the grounds and guaranteed safety for your property. Thank you Anchor Storage for all your help and protection.

Needed: New Situation And A New Vibration! - If you know the story of Cinderella, then you know me. For starters, I was born beautiful - so sue me! Some meanie took me from my mom and put me under the fence of a well-known animal rescue nutcase. Well, now I have two ugly step-sisters (real DOGS!) obviously very jealous of my good looks and they are mean to me. As a result, I have to spend most of my time in the house with THE CATS who just happen to hate me, too. I have keen powers of observation and have even learned (on occasion) to use the litter box. I fear that I'm becoming a "COG" - living somewhere in-between! In exchange for your love, good grub and a little quality beach time, I promise to be your playmate, faithful companion and fearless defender every day for the rest of my life. To help me get the heck outta here just e-mail cindyfenix [ -at- ] yahoo.com - and please - do it soon! - Todos Santos

A classic Mexican mutt! Very sweet dog. If he is yours please call or e-mail. Thank you, David.
