Farewell to Father Sergio - Karaoke is an ideal Adios. Sunday, July 10, at 7:45 p.m. If you haven't heard Sergio sing, you have missed something swell, so come to the inner patio of the Church, Sunday evening. Watch tears become cheers. Get and give smiles and hugs. Share music and karaoke-flavored love. Father Sergio rocks. Aplausos Celestiales! - Jan Piere, Todos Santos

San Juan Barrio Carnival - The Carnival's Committee invites the English-speaking community to join in festivities this weekend. Proceeds go toward the improvement of public works in Pescadero. We encourage more ex-pats to attend. Please help support the community that believes cultural integration and understanding are important. Saturday, entertainment night and dance with burro races and games Sunday. You won't want to miss the children's greased pig and adult greased pole events. "Ben and the Men" will perform Sunday at 7 p.m. and I know they would appreciate your support introducing a new music venue to our Mexican counterparts. Monetary donations may be made directly. - Debora southbeachcom2010 [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 612-118-3423, Pescadero

More Sea Turtle Nesting Tips - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - The sea turtles are back nesting for the next 9-10 months on our local beaches. Here are a few things you can do to help conserve this amazing centuries-old cycle that is vital to the health of our oceans:

1. Reduce outdoor lighting that shines on the beaches.
2. Don't allow dogs to dig up the nests.
3. Don't try to move nests.
4. Observe Mexican law by not driving on the beach.
5. Launch boats straight in from beach accesses.
6. Report locations and dates of nests to patronatocabodeleste [ - a t - ] gmail.com
7. Learn more about our local turtle conservation group by visiting www.bajaturtles.com

Netflix Expands To Mexico, South And Central America - Netflix has announced it will be expanding its streaming service to Mexico, South and Central America and the Caribbean later this year. The company will expand to 43 new countries with a staggered rollout.

Users in these countries will be able to watch global and local TV shows in English, Spanish or Portuguese. Just like in the U.S., the service will be viewable on computers, mobile devices and TVs. Says the company via its official blog:

Netflix members in the U.S. and Canada have really taken to watching instantly. We feel great about being able to offer the same combination of convenience, choice and value to people in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

Members in the region will be able to access Netflix.com in Spanish, Portuguese or English, depending on their preference, and will be able to enjoy entertainment on their TVs via a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as on PCs, Macs and mobile devices.

We'll keep you posted on the dates when we plan to expand in the region and hope you'll spread the word that Netflix will soon be accessible throughout the Americas! Meantime, if you'd like to sign up for the Latin America service, go to www.netflix.com and leave your info; we'll send an email reminder when the service launches.
In 2010, Netflix expanded the streaming service to Canada, its first step to move internationally. It is unclear what the service will be priced at in the new nations. - moderator [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com

IRS 2011 Voluntary Offshore Disclosure - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - The IRS 2011 Voluntary Offshore Disclosure Program ends on 8/31/11. Any entry into the program must be made by that date. If you have not been filing your tax return, reporting your Mexican Bank Accounts and Financial Accounts, reporting your Mexican Corporation, Partnership or Fideicomiso this may be the last chance to eliminate or reduce potentially huge penalties, and avoid criminal prosecution.

The IRS has stated any taxpayer who does not come forward by the date, and who is later discovered or attempts to make up for past forms which have not been filed will be subject to the maximum possible penalties and possible criminal prosecution.

The IRS knows that in 2008 only about 100,000 US tax returns were filed by Gringos living in Mexico, but there are over One Million US Citizens living in Mexico. With these statistics in mind, there is little doubt that Mexico will become a big target for the IRS in the very near future. The statue of limitations never runs out on future IRS action if you have not filed a return for any particular year or if you fail to file certain foreign information returns such as those for Mexican Corporations, Fideicomisos, Mexican Financial accounts, etc. - Kauffman Nelson LLP, Certified Public Accountants, ustax [ - a t - ] hotmail.com

Basic Desktop PC With English OS And Microsoft Windows Needed For Disabled Senior Citizen - Hi Y'all. I am in El Pescadero for the summer and fall, and I am writing an e-book about purchasing prescription medicines in Mexico. I brought along a flat panel monitor, old fashioned keyboard and a hopeful AMD X-2 2-core CPU that would be a million to one shot at finding a desktop that needs one of those critters. An old Windows XP O.S. plus 2000 whatever Microsoft Word program would be enough. Hopefully the USB outlets will be on the front. DVD player would be OK.

Now here's the catch: We old codgers have to try and survive on Social (in)/security so that means forgetting about getting a platinum plated Starship Enterprise PC with a Warp Factor 10 speed. Actually I could rent a computer for four months for a fair price and when the Word Program is deleted then no new programs will have been added. I'll use an USB and migrate to an internet cafe and copy files to send then onward in my email.

I have a dinosaur PC and Neanderthal Toshiba (with a bad battery) in Michoacan which is too far away to even think about trying to ship here. No matter what my tiny car cannot haul the "new" PC away from El Pescadero, because the car arrived packed like a chinese jigsaw puzzle. Thank you for taking the time to read this. This is one beautiful area. - David E., mexbungalows [ - a t - ] gmail.com, Pescadero

Hemp Seed Oil - Hemp seed oil has been dubbed "Nature's most perfectly balanced oil" and has been recognized as one of the most versatile and beneficial substances known to man, due to the fact that it contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linolei/LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition.

Extensive studies have demonstrated that many common illnesses and symptoms are related to deficiencies or imbalances of this fatty acids and their derivatives, the prostaglandins, in the body. The difference hemp has made in people’s lives is overwhelming ! - Jorge Treviño, info [ - a t - ] cabohemp.com, www.cabohemp.com, 624-175-2451, Cabo San Lucas

North Bound After June 30 - Heading back to the states after June 30, departure date is flexible but would like to leave by the first week of July.

Back to the States July 10 - Heading back to the States (as far as San Francisco if that's your destination too) on July 10 and would love to not be doing it solo. You could help with driving or just rest easy as co-pilot, either one is fine so long as a little gas cash gets chipped in. Folk/funk/rock/reggae ... whatever, it's all good as long as it keeps the good driving energy going. My girlfriend is heading straight home from the Galapagos, while I have the fun luck of returning to La Paz and getting our car and things back up to California. Let's take on this drive together! - gabriel.holt (at) gmail.com, 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 -

It Was A Dark And Stormy Night... - Okay, so that's a stretch - but it sure felt like it when all six of us got thrown away! We were so scared, so hungry and really missed our mom. After what seemed like forever, a really nice man named Joel came along and took us home. We all got a bath and some really good grub and life was good again.

But, here's the deal: Joel and Isela have a new baby boy and really need to find loving families for us because life is kind of hectic for them right now. Their great big dog and especially kitty have taught us to be respectful and we all get along just great. We are beautiful, in super good health and so anxious to meet our new family - we're waiting! For more info in English call Cindy at 145-0666 or in Spanish only call Joel 044-612-117-8381. - cindyfenix [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Present needs: A contained enclosure to manage shampoo bath every 3 days for 2 weeks, Flea/tick preventive med application, renew rabies shot.

Beautiful Dog Needs Home - We fostered a female dog named Onyx since she was 8 weeks old. She has been at a trainer for 3 weeks. She has a lot of energy and really needs a lot of property to run on.

You can contact Everesto at the shelter for more information. - Everesto, evaristoah [ - a t - ] hotmail.com, www.loscaboshumanesociety.com, 624-129-8346, Cabo San Lucas

"Good Dog" Needs Ride Home to Rosarito From Guerrero Negro - Hola, It is a long story on how our dog (Einstein, he was named that from the shelter/rescue group) is still in Guerrero Negro after our car broke down 60 miles north of there almost four weeks ago. Actually, the story has a way in which the 'universe' can show a sense of humor on what one plans to do. LOL anyway - the car is still not fixed, however, it was towed to Rosarito and we are looking for the right and perfect motor (Subaru 2.5 liter engine) - if you know of one, please let me know.

The question is: Do you know anyone going north (Rosarito) from Baja Sur that can stop in Guerrero Negro and give our dog ' a ride home?' He's good natured, calm, and mostly obeys simple commands. He weighs about 65 pounds and will stay "in the back" when you tell him "stay." If you can 'bring him home,' we would gladly help out on your gas expenses. All he needs is a couple of times to go for a short walk to do his normal body functions. He will have his food and water bowls along with his bed - and, he is an experienced traveler. - Richard Herndon, richardofbaja [ - a t - ] yahoo.com
