Jose Meza Almanza - Jose Meza Almanza has been transferred from the pediatric hospital in Mexico City to the National Institute of Medical Sciences and Nutrition. At this time he is being treated for a serious kidney infection. Since he has been moved, his parents are in need of financial assistance. They are in a delicate situation and our support is necessary for them to remain in Mexico City.

Jose is a feisty kid who loves to fish with his dad and play soccer with his brothers. Hopefully he will respond to treatment so that the doctors can go ahead with the surgery that is needed for his wellbeing. Donations can be made at Buenos Suenos and will be wired to Mexico City. We are located across the street from the bus station and diagonally across from the park.Thank you. - Diamond Moran

Jose Meza Almanza ha sido transferido del hospital en la Ciudad de Mexico al Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Medicas y Nutricion. En este momento, esta siendo tratado por su infeccion de rinon muy serio. Desde que lo movieron, sus papas han necesitado asistencia financial. Estan en una situacion muy delicada y nuestro apoyo es necesario para que puedan quedarse en la Ciudad de Mexico.

Jose es un muchacho lleno de vida que le gusta pescar con su papa y jugar futbol con sus hermanos y esperamos que va a responder al tratamiento para que los doctores pueden seguir con la cirugia que se necesita para su bienestar. Aceptamos donaciones en Buenos Suenos para mandarlos a la Ciudad de Mexico. Estamos localizados en frente de la parada de autobus diagonalmente en frente del parque. Gracias. - Diamond Moran, diamondmoran [-a t-]yahoo.com, 612-145-0249

Break-in in Las Tunas - Last week, one or two men broke into our home by smashing a window on the ground floor and used a ladder to try to enter the second floor but were unsuccessful. Personal items such as clothing, shoes, toiletries, bedding, and food items such as sugar, cookies, and alcohol were stolen. They arrived on foot and, for various reasons, we suspect them to be transient workers working on a nearby construction project. The police were notified and responded immediately. Unfortunately, the culprits were long gone. - bajanomads [-a t-]hotmail.com, Todos Santos

News of the Road - Thanks to all of you, the road was graded Monday and paid by the municipality. We know it is not going to last but we have to wait for the new mayor election this next weekend. We can consider paving with contributions by the municipality and by participation of us all. Mr. Romex was in favor, saying asphalt is not too expensive and all business owners were ready to contribute to cover the costs.

Here is some information I received regarding the damages of grading the road too often: "It has become known to me that the water pipes are not buried very deep under the road and that grading on a monthly schedule could create more problems. The water department will not bury the pipes deeper unless the individual property owners that are serviced by those pipes pay for this to be done. Rather than grading on a monthly basis, it seems best to grade less frequently when absolutely necessary."

I just found out that the water pipes problem stops at El Sol 2 but I need to verify. Thanks for all your encouragement and pledges - Cat Chambaret, chambaretcat [-a t-]mac.com, 612- 102-8393, Todos Santos

Baja Road Report - Courtesy Of Ventana View - Road report and free wireless on La Paz malicon, After going both ways recently, I have found that for southern Baja you want to travel on Sunday as they are doing construction and the work south of Loreto in the mountains has no delays because they have that day off. When I went by on a weekday it was several delays up to 30 minutes each. And same with driving up north heading south on a Saturday there were no construction delays as no one was working on Saturday. Also there is significantly less truck traffic on Sunday, Saturday seemed about the same.

I crossed southbound at Otay Mesa because I had items to declare, and also the traffic from there south was minimal vs a weekday. I also did a photo section on where including where to park and how to declare items at Otay Mesa to make it simple, this took me 10-15 minutes. And if need be you can walk back and do visa work. very secure parking there. I have also updated my site with where specifically aduana is in TJ (San Ysidoro) to get or have a temproary car sticker removed, it is a bit tricky so I have the printable details at www.la-ventana.info under travel by land also.

Also listed on that website under travel: by land; there is a new service that can text you current border crossing updates and in the future they claim they will have live video feeds of the major crossing locations. - dean [-a t-]la-ventana.com

USA Cell Phone Pay As You Go - Courtesy Of Ventana View - I just purchased an AT&T "go phone" pay as you go cell phone, with a US plan of $2.00 a day for unlimited calls. and was able to call Mexico with it for $0.26 cents a minute while in the USA..
Now I tested it today in Mexico (roaming) and was able to call here in Mexico for $0.26 cents a minute. and received a call for $0.26 cents a minute. Looked at the online bill and they did not charge me the $2.00 for the daily use just the above per minute fee.
So this is a very good deal for those of us who do not live on our cell phones and do go up to the USA for trips.
I bought the this phone for $20.00 and it had $30.00 of credit. and only pay the $2.00 a day for unlimited USA calls when I actually use the phone. it is active for 3 months and then i have to add credit. If I add $100.00 of credit it is active for 1 year. a copy of this is posted on the site www.la-ventana.info if you need this information later. - dean [-a t-]la-ventana.com

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 -

I Am So Lonesome - My brother and sister were adopted and I'm all alone here at my foster home. The older cats here hiss at me, but I do get along well with the dogs. I just have no one to play with. I am indoor/outdoor trained, understand English and gringo Spanish. Maybe you could love me? - Pam Cobb, senoracobb [-a t-]yahoo.com, 612-102-7983, Todos Santos

3 Adorable Puppies Rescued - I rescued three starving, flea and tick infested female puppies from death by neglect. Two pups look like black lab mix, one is smaller and tan color. They are now strong, healthy and lively puppies ready to be relocated to good homes. I cannot keep three dogs so please open your heart and home to a sweet little pup. For more information, please write dianejoy39 [-a t-]yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Baja Dogs: Please Help Save Eli! - We would like to introduce ELI: She was found standing alone on the road near CIB. Her entire body was covered with Mange. She had so many open sores on her body she hardly had any hair left. Her back, elbows, feet, legs, rear end and tail were totally red and full of sores. Her entire body itched constantly. She had no energy, and had just given up on life.

After a few sessions of mange treatment we could see the difference in her: the itch had subdued, the sores are healing, and her hair has grown back. This girl is a trooper. She is full of love, easy-going and gentle. She has endured so much already, but unfortunately we have recently found out she has heartworm. This disease is from a mosquito bite and will kill her without your help!

Heartworm is treatable, but far too expensive for our refuge to undertake on its own. The treatment will cost $3300 pesos and if we cannot raise the money, she will have to be put to sleep. If you can find it in your heart to make any kind of a donation to help this beautiful young girl, your donation will literally save her life. If you care to help Eli, please mark your donations "ELI" so they go directly to her care. If you would like to see a photo of Eli I would be happy to forward it if you email me. Baja Dogs is a registered Mexican non-profit organization that relies completely on Private donations, as we receive no government funding.

For more information, visit www.bajadogslapaz.org; or call 612-155-8948(Spanish), or 612-140-2575 (English). You can also write us at bdlp [-a t-]bajadogslapaz.org. - Cindy Crane, bdlp [-a t-]bajadogslapaz.org , www [-a t-]bajadogslapaz.org, 612-140-2575 , La Paz

My 3 Boxers Have Gone Missing!! - Three of my four Boxer dogs have gone missing since Monday morning in the La Cachora area.

The other two are her sons Paco and Bob (both 1 year old). Paco is tiger stripped and Bob is honey/brown like his mama.

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?
