7th Annual Cabalgata in Todos Santos - The Association of Riders of Baja Sur invite everyone to participate and enjoy the 7th annual Cabalgata arriving in Todos Santos from La Paz Oct. 9. In honor of Nuestra Senora del Pilar, the parade of horsemen and horsewomen will arrive near the Dulcerias at the top of Calle Juarez around 11 a.m. After meeting with the Priest, he will lead the group around town to arrive at the Stadium, near the downtown Pemex Station around noon. Following the procession will be a show of Escaramuza ladies riding sidesaddle performing daring drill team manuevers in their beautiful Adelita dresses, dancing horses, presentation of riders and more! It's all free and fun for all to see a very traditional part of the Ranchero culture here in Baja California Sur enjoying their horses, mules, burros and companionship! - Kaia Thomson, kaia [- a t -] mindspring.com, 612-154-5588, Todos Santos

Dr. Tomás to Visit - I’ve invited Dr. Tomás to my house Sunday, Nov. 6, at 9 a.m. to treat pets in the carport. But before we confirm this, we need to know how many people (with how many pets) would like a Todos Santos appointment that morning. E-mail me so I can collect names, last name, too, & the pet name(s). You can call me, but it's better to email so I can gather all the specifics in one document for him. Dr. Tomas will have all vaccines, medications/certificates, etc. if he knows what is needed. I will reply to all with a confirmation and appointment time. Location: One block North of El Sol 2. - Jan Piere, jans [- a t -] janimagine.com, 145-0685, Todos Santos

Annual Rummage Sale/Tianguis - The annual rummage sale for the cats at Kitty Heaven will be held on Saturday, Dec. 10 at the 9th annual World Class Garage Sale at La Canada del Diablo.

Kitty Heaven is the only cat refuge in Todos Santos and is funded solely through donation. No proceeds from the Fur Ball are ever allocated to Kitty Heaven.

Thank You St. Lukes - Overcome with a raging case of salmonella, I had no time to lose and went to St Luke's in Todos Santos. Hector and his staff were wonderful - most speak English, very professional, very clean facilities. They treated me as if I were their only patient, monitoring my medication every 10-15 minutes and not allowing me to leave until they were sure I was okay. Considering the quality and expediency of care, I feel that fees charged were fair and reasonable. Check them out! - Name withheld by request

Shipping Companies - I am reaching out to get recommendations of whom to use (or avoid) to import and ship goods from California to Todos Santos. I am also interested in using an importer for papework only and driving my things down once cleared at border. Thanks in advance for your help. I will share responses for everyones benefit. (I also have a local Mexican phone number, 612-132-4731, but am in the US right now.) - John Mcintosh, john [- a t -] mcintoshco.com, 707-287-3210, Todos Santos

Looking For a Ride Share in November - I'm driving from Kelowna, British Columbia to Cabo first week of November. Will be traveling via I-5 through Oregon and California. Won't have much spare room for extra luggage, so if you travel light, are willing to share expenses and want to have a heck of a road trip, get back to me. I did this drive last year so I'm familiar with the route and the process. Will be crossing at TJ. I prefer to do the driving myself, but the company and second set of eyes are a plus. Thanks, Mirek - Mirek Hrabanek, canczech26 [- a t -] hotmail.com, Cabo San Lucas

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

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

Quote of the Day: " Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. " ~ Steve Jobs, Stanford University Commencement Address, 2005
