Big Fire Thank You - An enormous "Thank You!" to everyone who helped fight the Huerta fire last Sunday in San Vicente/Camino a La Poza. The winds were high, and flames spread quickly. But thanks to you, the destruction was minimized. Apparently, a boat, a car, at least one palapa roof and, the second floor contents of a house were destroyed. For those who may not know Chuy, he badly cut his arm while trying to save personal effects from the casa of his patron. May Chuy's injury mend soon.

Anyone who saw the blaze knows we were all very lucky. Apparently, no human or pet lives were lost. Our back yard is blanketed in ash, and our vista stained with rows of burnt-black palms, but, like Chuey, our barrio will mend and the huerta will be green again.

In addition to the many locals who pitched in, there were several extranjeros, visitors it seemed, who picked-up shovels, lugged buckets, and did whatever was needed. When night fell and the bomberos rolled-up their hoses, our barrio was once once again safe thanks to the band of Heroes that came together; young and old, nationals and extranjeros, residents and visitors, and experienced fire-fighters.

To all of you, and you know who you are, I commend you on a job well done. On behalf of our community, a huge and heartfelt Thank You! - Jennifer Rosen, jenniferleighrosen [ -a t- ] yahoo.com, 145-0349, Todos Santos

TS Power Outages - Last Sunday the power in Las Brisas and I assume most of Todos Santos went off and on about 10 times. We have been having similar problems today. (Saturday) I lost a good quality multiple outlet timer/digital clock that had battery back-up. Does anyone have insight into these recent power problems?

Feel free to forward your knowledge and/or experience(s) to my email. - Darryl Beebe, darrylb9 [ -a t- ] gmail.com

Cultural Purpose Dinners at Cafe Todos Santos - We are happy to present a new program of food and entertainment at Cafe 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 Cafe Todos Santos - Angelo Dal Bon, angelodalbon [ -a t- ] gmail.com, 6121450274, Baja California Sur

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

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -


Lots Of Puppies - At the little tienda just south of Rancho Nuevo, two of the family dogs have given birth to puppies - a total of 14 cute little bundles of joy. They are about five weeks old now, a variety of colours (tan, brindle, etc.) The parents are all there and are medium size, normal leg length, nice looking and friendly.
Even if you don't want to adopt one, or know someone up north that would take one, perhaps you would consider donating the cost of a spaying/neutering of any pup that is adopted by someone who can't afford to do so, or either of the mothers. I would facilitate that happening if you would pay for it. - Willa, bajawilla [ -a t- ] yahoo.ca, 612 151-0869
