Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend in Mexico - Daylight Saving Time (DST) is also called "Summer Time" or "Daylight Savings Time," and ends in most of Mexico this Sunday, October 30 when we return to "Regular Time" also known as "Standard Time," "Normal Time" or "Winter Time." The state of Sonora does not observe Daylight Saving Time. Most Mexican residents will move their clocks back 1 hour. Daylight Saving Time will end in most parts of the US and Canada the following weekend on Sunday, November 6, 2011.

In 2010, the Mexican government authorized ten Mexico municipalities that border the United States to began Daylight Saving Time to correspond with US Daylight Saving Time. These areas include Acuna, Coahuila, Anahuac, Nuevo Leon, Juarez, Chihuahua, Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexicali, Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Ojinaga, Chihuahua, Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Reynosa, Tamaulipas, and Tijuana. This change was requested to facilitate commerce with the US. Transportation and banking industries were especially affected by the three-week difference in daylight saving time and, in many cases, businesses had to to open an hour earlier in order to conduct business with US companies during the period when the two countries were on different times. -

Help Create A Farm Sanctuary In Baja - I came here with the intent to get a few things done this season and one of them was to free some animals I saw being kept in the most deplorable conditions in Pescadero on a small piece of property a mile or so from the town proper. There were rabbits, chickens, other fowl, pigs (mother and babies held in separate confinement), goats (the only ones allowed outside their pen periodically) and other animals confined for eventual slaughter.

Guarding these animals were five or six dogs all on very short leashes and barking non-stop. They were extremely emaciated and apparently being kept near starvation to psychologically threaten the other animals penned inside the guard dog perimeter. The sounds of piglets crying in distress, the incessant barking of the starving dogs, the insane circling of the birds was nightmarish.

We happened onto this scene while being shown a lot for sale by the owner of these animals. I don't speak Spanish and so was unable to plead for the animals better care at that moment but I couldn't erase this tragic scene from my mind. I am very interested in revisiting this place with others who might be interested in helping free these animals and possibly also establishing a farm animal sanctuary in Baja.

Like many vegans, I stopped eating animals when I realized that they had feelings and thoughts no different than my own. It would be nice to be able to bring others to a place where they too could see that for themselves. A Baja farm sanctuary could also make a very valuable contribution to local educational programs and tourism. Please contact me if you are interested in helping make a Baja farm sanctuary a reality. The best way to contact me is by email. - Cheryl Hugle, allinharmony [ - a t - ] gmail.com, allinharmony.org, 612-102-0372, Baja California Sur

Dentist - I will be coming to Todos in the middle of December and I am looking for a dentist for my husband. He needs a lot of work (implants?) we hope to find one that speaks English, as our Spanish is minimal. La Paz or Cabo is ok. I am also looking for my brother-in law and sister. Will appreciate any recommendations, as I have heard there are excellent dentist in the area. - Gail Guerrero, googoo52 [ - a t - ] gmail.com, Todos Santos

The Baja Western Onion

How To Post a Photo Or Image With Your Ad - Each week we receive several ads and articles with broken links to images that the submitter intended to include, or with links to images that are far to large to include in The Baja Western Onion. We don't have time to figure out how to fix these links or resize images so we simply delete the link.

Here are some requirements for images submitted with your ad or article:

  1. The image must be located on a web server somewhere. You cannot link to images on your computer.
  2. The image must be no larger than 250 pixels high by 250 pixels wide. There are 72 pixels to an inch on the average PC display monitor so 250 pixels is about 3.5" in width or height. The image to the right is 250 x 250 pixels.
  3. The image must be saved in a low-resolution web format, no greater than 72 DPI (Dots Per Inch). The file size must also be no larger than 30 KB. Larger files take longer to load. When an issue of the Baja Western Onion is loaded with large graphics, it slows down many of our readers' computers.
  4. The image fila name must not have any spaces. Remove spaces or replace them with dashes or underscores; "My Favorite Photo.jpg" becomes "My-Favorite-Photo.jpg" or "MyFavoritePhoto.jpg"
  5. The image file name MUST end in one of the following file extensions: .JPG, .JPEG, .GIF or .PNG. Any other file extension won't work.

We've posted a detailed tutorial online explaining how to add images to your articles. You can find it here at: www.bajawesternonion.com/how-to-post-photos-with-your-ad-or-article.asp

Of course, if all of this is too much for you, we can resize and host your image on the Baja Western Onion web site for only $5.00 US. Just let us know in the "Additional Comments" box when you submit an article. Then send us the image, or a link to your web page containing the image, by Email to Moderator [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com. - The Baja Western Onion, The Baja Western Onion

If You Have Guests Coming Over Thanksgiving? - I saw a low cost auction for resort accommodation over US Thanksgiving week. I have no connection whatsoever with this auction or the resort, but I thought that there might be readers of this list whom this could benefit (especially if you have more guests coming for Thanksgiving than there is room for at your home). Auction ends Oct 28, and there is a "buy it now" option. Here is the link to the eBay auction (which is at $150 at time of writing) for a week at Pueblo Bonitas in Cabo San Lucas: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160670468895&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123 Good luck!
