Help Needed For Mujeres Ayudando A Mujeres / Women Helping Women Shelter - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - Hola Todos, Thank you so much for your support for the Shelter for Women and Children over this past year. Thanks to a very generous soul, the Shelter now has a baby crib to house the one-month old baby. Another baby is due on November 3rd.

The Shelter badly needs single/twin sheets pillow cases and at least 6 pillows for the dorm. You can well imagine the condition of the bedding with so many women and children, some using the Shelter like a revolving door. Three of the colour coordinated bedspreads, bought at the end of Feb., were ruined by a pair of 3 and 4 yr. old sisters who got into one of the older muchachas drawers and decided to give themselves manicures. The result was nail polish all over three of the matching spreads. If you have a stash of cotton fabrics in your cupboards, we have 2 sewing machines - mine and one donated to the Shelter. We can at least sew up duvet covers to cover the ruined spreads. Lessons learned: lock up the dorm during the day to keep the kids out of there.

Also the Shelter is looking for a good used refrigerator. They had two, one for their use in the kitchen and one for the jam samples in the office. The frigde in the kitchen died a few weeks ago. Is there a generous soul out there who is upgrading their fridge who can donate their used one to the Shelter? The Shelter has a pick up truck so transportation can be easily arranged.

I'm sorry to say that the Shelter has also "lost" all of their brand new electric tools needed to convert the sheets of plastic (they receive in payment for doing the sorting at the recycling plant) to usable and salable products. A police report was made, but it is 99.9% sure that it was an "inside" job by a drug addict who knew where the tools were kept. Benita, the owner of the Shelter, is heart broken because this theft has greatly reduced the Shelter's ability to earn income by making salable products. Of course she can't believe that "one of their own" turned on her and literally stabbed her in the back by his theft.

If you can help with a used fridge, electrical tools, bedding and/or cotton fabrics, please e-mail me privately at luizalanoy [- a t -] yahoo.ca We can arrange pick up for any and all donations including clothes and shoes too. - Luiza, www.tasteofthebaja.com/WomenHelpingWomen/, La Paz

ATM Problem For Visitors - Todos Santos Residents: Please advise visitors to Todos Santos that there are problems with some of the ATMs in town. As has been widely reported, sometimes when a visitor inserts a foreign debit card or credit card into a local ATM to obtain cash, there is a communication problem between the Mexican bank and the foreign bank. This results in the visitor receiving no cash, but the amount s/he was trying to withdraw being deducted from his/her account. To resolve the problem, they must report the transaction to the Mexican bank. The Mexican bank will give them a report of the transaction 24 hours later (apparently unable to do so earlier). The visitor then must call their home bank to report the incident and have the funds reinstated into their account.

Many visitors have had this problem and have successfully resolved it as outlined above. This is clearly a great inconvenience for everyone involved: the visitors and those who cater to them in our town. Managers of our local banks are fully aware of the problem. Please advise your guests that the local English-speaking bank employees are happy to assist them to the best of their ability but do not have any authority in the matter. Visitors and locals should speak to bank branch managers directly to pursue a permanent solution. - Bryan Batson, Baja California Sur

Fiestas Tradicionales Todos Santos 2011 / 2011 Todos Santos Annual Traditional Festival - Todos Santos will come alive this week with traditional annual festivities in honor of the founding of Todos Santos and its patron saint, Nuestra Señora del Pilar / Our Lady of Pilar. Nuestra Señora del Pilar is the name given to the Virgin Mary for her reported appearance at the start of Christianity in Spain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_of_the_Pillar). The Festivities will begin this Friday, October 07 at 7:00 PM and conclude late Wednesday evening, October 12. Events will include religious activities, arts and cultural programs, sports, community exhibits, amusement rides, horse back riding and races, music and dancing exhibitions, contests, a car show, presentations and conferences. A key event is the nominations and coronation ceremony for this year's Queen of The Festival.

Events will be held at the Main Plaza, and other locations in Todos Santos. Look for a special edition of the Baja Western Onion later this week highlighting the Festival's activities. - The Baja Western Onion

Commedia dell'Ego: The Unmasking of the Ego - Comedy? The Buddha said that the Ego is Suffering! What can be so funny about that? The unexamined Ego keeps us in the state of suffering and believing that we know who we are. But look again! Through theatre, movement, dance, meditation, relaxation, Qi Gong, to name a few things ... we can get relief from the relentless chatter of our relative mind/ego and its absurdity - since it has no existence of its own - realizing that it is just a pestering clown - amusing rather than tragic.

We will learn its antics and tricks ... and see through to the other side ... the Essential you. Once seen, there is no going back ... and you will be different. No matter if you are a novice or have a long standing spiritual practice, you will leave with more tools in your pocket to connect to your True Being. Join us and have fun for five days. Details coming soon. April 4-8, 2012, Wednesday thru Sunday, Yandara Yoga Institute - Rhoda Jacobs, barakabaja [- a t -] gmail.com, 612-157- 6088 (cell), Rancho Nuevo

Please Help Keep Unwanted Dogs and Cats Off Our Streets - The annual Spay/Neuter Clinic will take place Nov. 17, 18, and 19 at La Canada del Diablo. Four vets from the U.S. along with several vet techs will join our local vets in an effort to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats in our neighborhoods. This service is provided at greatly reduced or free of charge to those in the local Mexican community who could not afford otherwise to have their animals neutered.

While the vets, both local and U.S. donate their services , there are still many expenses involved. The funds raised at the Fur Ball help offset these costs but there is never quite enough. If you have a shopping trip coming up and could help with a few purchases, the following items are essential:

  1. paper towels
  2. syringes 3 ml
  3. alcohol
  4. trash bags
  5. rubber gloves
And let's not forget those hungry, thirsty vets and volunteers who so appreciate drinking water, sodas and snacks. Please mark the dates on your calendar! For more information or to volunteer please contact Angelique at BajaKitties [- a t -] Yahoo.com. Thank you. - Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos A.C. - bajakitties [- a t -] yahoo.com

AT&T Viva Mexico Plan Info - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - This is a link to the ATT site for their Viva Mexico plan: www.wireless.att.com/learn/international/viva-mexico.jsp. The good news is that with Viva Mexico you can call for free to and from Mexico with your ATT cell phone. The caveat is that somewhere at ATT there's some small print that states that "Calls made from or received in Mexico cannot exceed your monthly usage allowance (the lesser of 750 minutes or 40% of your anytime minutes/mo) in any two consecutive months."

Translated, this means that in any two month period, the usage for one of those months can be only 40% of your anytime minutes. The following month, you can use all of your anytime minutes. We've been breaking that rule for years, but last year they nabbed us. Not only that, the warning letter, stating that we would be cut off form ATT, was sent to our home while we were still in Mexico. AV

Good Info On What To Do If You Lose Your Dog In Baja (or Anywhere) - This excellent article courtesy of Baja Insider: www.bajainsider.com/baja-life/pet-care/findinglostdogs.htm - The Baja Western Onion

Missing Friend - Our friend went missing Thursday night (Sept. 8) We miss him and so does his buddy. He was last seen around the Sandbar. He is brown, short hair and has two scars (a large scar on his left flank and a thin white scar around his neck which was caused by a string he was tied up with when we rescued him). He has (had) a red collar. Instead of him moping around, feeling sad and lonely, why not bring him back and let him come home? He is not a stray and we would like him back home sleeping in his favorite spot. If anyone has seen him, please get in touch. email jimiykaren [- a t -] yahoo.com, phone 130-3022 - jimiykaren [- a t -] yahoo.com, Pescadero
