NOAA Predicts Below Normal 2011 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season - Although the 2011 Hurricane season officially started on May 15, things are still pretty quiet on the Eastern Front. The 2011 NOAA Outlook, issued 19 May 2011, calls for a 5 percent probability of an above normal season, a 25 percent probability of a near normal season and a 70 percent probability of a below normal season:

Climate patterns similar to those expected this year have historically produced a wide range of activity. Allowing for uncertainties, NOAA estimates a 70% chance of occurrence for each of the following ranges of activity this season:
  • 9-15 Named Storms
  • 5-8 Hurricanes
  • 1-3 Major Hurricanes

The seasonal activity is expected to fall within these ranges in 7 out of 10 seasons with similar climate conditions and uncertainties to those expected this year. They do not represent the total possible ranges of activity seen in past similar years. The 1981-2010 averages for the eastern Pacific hurricane season are 15-16 named storms, 8-9 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes.

Read the complete NOAA outlook here: www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/Epac_hurr/Epac_hurricane.html. Also, read the Baja Insider's take on the current forecast: http://www.bajainsider.com/weather/2011easternpacifichurricaneoutlook.htm -

Zumba - Zumba classes are offered Monday and Wednesday at 10 a.m. in Todos Santos, and Tuesday and Thursday at 4 p.m. at Rancho Pescadero. Todos Santos classes are held in Las Brisas. If you are heading west from the pila (large water tank), take the first right turn. We are on the left in an open-air back patio. Just follow the signs. Cost is 50 pesos per class, with the first class being free. Tennis shoes recommended. The Zumba instructor is Jan "Juanita" Turner. For more information, call 612-348-1111. Come join the fun! - Jan Turner, jant [-a t-] aol.com, 612-348-1111

East Cape A.L.M.A. Animal Rescue Needs Help!! - If any of you "stateside" locals has family or friends thinking of adopting a pet, why not a Baja dog or pup? We have three or four adult dogs: well-behaved, housebroken, already trained companions needing homes. We also have some of the cutest, most adorable pups you've ever seen. We can transport them to some cities in the U.S. for free! Even better, they will arrive with their shots and health certificates and, in the case of the adult dogs, spayed or neutered.

Visit our website to see some pics, www.almacares.com. We also have a Facebook page. If you send out this notice to ten of your friends and ask them to send it to ten of theirs, our message will get out to thousands of people. Help us find these beautiful pets a wonderful home. Call Sheila or Janel, 624-137-7683 or 624-175-9102, or email janelinmex [-a t-] yahoo.com or bajasheila [-a t-] yahoo.ca - Janel Faraci, janelinmex [-a t-] yahoo.com, 624-137-7683, Los Barriles

A Little Girl and Her Family Need Help - A little two-year-old girl has been scheduled for heart surgery in Mexico City at the beginning of June and another round-trip ticket to and from Mexico City is needed.

Please contact Angelique at 612-145-0250 to donate. Thank you. bajakitties [-a t-] yahoo.com, Baja California Sur

New Internet-delivered TV Service? - I just came across US TV NOW, http://www.ustvnow.com, an Internet-delivered TV service, now in Beta. It looks like they're targeting users outside the US, and are going to offer the "Big Four" Networks (ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX), as well as PBS, ESPN, CW, A & E, Animal Planet, Bravo, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, History Channel, TBS, TNT, USA Network, and other channels. From their web site:

We love TV! Our dream is to have all the TV in the world available instantly to everyone, wherever they are.

But for the time being, our service is only available for those of you that are traveling overseas or reside abroad and have no other way to watch TV from the US.

If you are traveling outside the continental U.S.A. our service is available to all Americans or those who would normally be able to watch US cable, satellite or broadcast TV. Below you are able to pre-register for the service and already schedule the programs you want to record*. As soon as you are abroad you will be able to watch the shows you recorded or watch live from home TV.

In the U.S.A we're not able to offer our service to you until your local cable or satellite provider becomes an USTVNow TV Anywhere partner. We're really sorry about this, but it takes time to get every TV and broadband provider on board. You can help by giving them a call and asking when USTVNow TV Anywhere will be available to you.
The web site is a little clunky, and I could not set up an account (possibly because it detected I'm currently in the US), but I'd be interested in hearing from others how/if this is working in Mexico in various formats; through TelMex, TelCel, Satellite Internet, IPad, IPhone, Roku, Google TV, etc. - Alan, alan [-a t-] bajasatellite.com, 612-348-1111

Buena Vida's New Menu and Hours! - Things have slowed down so we're changing our Spring season hours. We're open Friday-Monday, 5-9:30 p.m. We now have an Early Bird Special from 5-7 p.m. nightly. Order any pizza and your second pizza is half price.

I have changed the way things are being cooked up at Buena Vida. I have chucked my menu and I am now winging it. My menu will change daily according to what's fresh and available at the fish markets, butcher and the local organic gardens. It's all fresh from the source and right to your table. I will always have pizza options but I'm shifting my focus to fish, meats and poultry. Some of my dishes so far have been:

  • Stewed Octopus
  • Sizzling Shrimp
  • Bahian fish stew
  • Seared Scallops, etc.
Please e-mail me if you want to receive my blog of nightly specials Fri.-Mon. You can still call ahead for the organic chicken in a clay pot. I only need an hours notice! Don't forget: We deliver (no minimum charge or delivery fees), including Las Tunas. I'll even go to Pescadero for BIG orders. Please support your local restaurants both old and new during the low season. - Jessie Rutowski, jessierutowski [-a t-] gmail.com, www.buenavidapizzeria.com, 612-151-1431, Todos Santos
