Día De Los Muertos - Day Of The Dead - [From Wikipedia] "The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it attains the quality of a National Holiday. The celebration takes place on November 1st and 2nd, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day (November 1) and All Souls' Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts." Read more here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_the_Dead. En Español: es.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%ADa_de_Muertos.

Here is a link to an interesting radio piece that aired today on PRI's The World radio program about the people who make traditional "Sugar Skulls" to celebrate Día de los Muertos. At one time, around 80 families in Mexico made them. Today, only 10 produce the seasonal treats. www.theworld.org/2011/10/sugar-skulls-dia-de-los-muertos/. - The Baja Western Onion

Día De Los Muertos Cultural Presentations Tuesday And Wednesday - The teaching staff at Se Habla. La Paz Spanish language school is presenting (2) Dia de los Muertos presentations this year:

The first presentation will be held at the language school on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 1:15 p.m. This day is called Día de los Inocentes. There will be an altar made by the Se Habla students honoring Steve Jobs. Typical foods for the holiday will be served and afterwards and then the staff will accompany participants to the nearby cemetery to view and explain the traditions. The entire presentation including the optional trip to the cemetery will be about 2 hours. Please bring water bottles and hats for shade in case the afternoons continue to be warm while out at the cemetery. We will share rides out to the cemetery with those who have transportation.

The second presentation will be held at the Teatro Ciudad (City Theatre) Nov. 2, at 6 p.m. in the Biblioteca Infantil (Children’s Library) located next to the ticket window at the Theatre. This will be the same presentation as on Tuesday and afterwards we will walk thru the many fabulous Altars that are on display on the patio in front of the Theatre and enjoy the music, food and of course, the Catrinas walking about the grounds. This is an incredible citywide cultural event and we are pleased to teach the foreign community about the many symbols of the Día de los Muertos in Mexico. This cultural presentation will last about 45 minutes and then the walk around the displays.

Both presentations are FREE, walk-ins welcome. A big thank you to the City Theatre and the City’s Cultural Department for their support and cooperation in providing space for us to offer this excellent presentation. The school is located on Francisco Madero #540 between República and Guerrero, 1 block above the Malecon. For questions or clarifications, please call Juli at 122-7763.

Saturday Morning Fun Time Begins - A unique program for children ages 3-12 begins Nov. 5 from 9:30 a.m. until noon. The program is designed to enhance their natural creativity, imagination, and curiousity through Art, Music, Storytelling, Science, Puppetry, Cognitive Games, Cooking, Imaginative Play, Spanish, and Drama. With a strong emphasis on Conflict Resolution and Cooperation, this is an enriching experience for children, offered by a bi-lingual veteran teacher (and mother of 4), and providing Saturday morning fun time for them, free time for you. Call or email for more information and to enroll.

"Tracy's enrichment program is unlike any I've ever encountered. The space she's created at her home, the unique projects she's developed, the quality of her materials--they are all remarkable. Our children talk about Tracy as if she is a magical being--which she is. A magic being who challenges our children to think creatively and explore science and drama, baking, storytelling--she covers so much ground in a perfect compliment to both school and afterschool play. How lucky for all of us that she's right here in Todos Santos!"

Dogs and Cabo Airport - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Just returned with our dog and discovered a new procedure upon arrival regarding dogs. You must take your dog to the Agricultural office, show the official the Original rabies and health certificate and have the dog inspected. They give you two inspection certificates with official stamps. You need one stamped certificate to leave with the dog if you plan to return by air to the US. Our delay getting out of the airport: one hour! - Bob And Karen Porter

Can You Adopt Alex's Dog? - The late Alejandro "Alex" Manjarrez Zuniga leaves behind a beautiful 2-year-old male pointer-mix. Very well behaved, street wise and great with kids. Those interested please contact. - Rick Plaia, rickplaia [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-178-0000, Todos Santos

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 a volunteer 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.

This is a reminder that this special, volunteer Clinic is NOT INTENDED for the general community who can and should pay for their own spay and neuter services, which most likely includes all of the readers of the Baja Western Onion. If you show up with your own pets intending to get free services meant for others less fortunate, you will be turned away. However, if you know of a truly needy Mexican household that cannot afford these sevices then please refer them to this event.

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 [- at -] Yahoo.com. Thank you. - Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos A.C. - bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com
