Percussionist Wanted - Looking for a percussionist for upcoming events. Email me please for details. - Tim , tim [- at -] timlang.net, Pescadero

'Concierge' - A new publication for the Todos Santos and Pescadero area. - Brenda Casillas, 612-141-6297, 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. If you would like to donate household goods, working electronics or any other items to our sale (and our cause) please contact Angelique. 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. (All Fur Ball proceeds are directed solely to spay and neuter of animals belonging to our Mexican hosts that otherwise would not receive this surgery.) - Angelique, bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com

Rental Car Insurance - I just got a good deal on a rental car from Economy at SJD Airport, but remember that the last time I rented a car, the Mexican rental car insurance was very expensive. Anyone know if I can get that insurance ahead of time for a reasonable cost? - Jolyn Wells-moran, jowellsmoran [- at -] gmail.com, Baja California Sur

Free Blood Pressure Screening and Stress Status Evaluation - Offered by Dr. Bill Sniechowski, D.C., this Saturday, Nov. 12, from 9 a.m.-noon at La Canada del Diablo on the back palapa terrace. - Dr. Bill Sniechowski, drbillinbaja [- at -] yahoo.com, 624-118-1603, Todos Santos

Great Transportation Service - I have just arrived back from the US and used Safe Ride in Baja Sur. I found them here in the Onion. The ride was much nicer then the bus to Todos Santos with the road construction. They lived up to there name of "Safe Ride." The driver was professional and the fare was affordable. Thanks, Safe Ride. - Dawn Jackson, anothergreatday [- at -] live.com, Todos Santos

Vehicle Importation Issues - The catch-all called ONAPPAFA, A.C., supposedly an interim permit for foreign vehicles awaiting nationalization and Mexican Plates, is about to be cancelled - no more ONAPPAFA. I checked with the Highway police here after hearing rumors that our vehicles would be confiscated. The policeman told me that it is true: They will confiscate the vehicles and destroy them. Is that so we rush to aduanas and apply to import the vehicle? This is pretty scary. By the way, the police also told me that if you have expired U.S. plates you will not be bothered here in Todos Santos, but it is a dicretionary call for police stopping people in La Paz or Los Cabos -- maybe a fine or whatever! (N. Dakota plates are only available to US Citizens with a US address and US Drivers License.)

You are legal to drive with a foreign licence as long as your vehicle papers, be it U.S., or Canadian plated, name agree. You cannot get a Mexican drivers license with a tourist permit and so are not legal to buy a Mexican plated vehicle and drive with a tourist permit and drivers licence. That is how I understood it. Does anyone have information on the procedure for importing a vehicle? Definitely only if you have FM3 or better. Thanks - Gillian Herbert, gillyndolly(at)hotmail.com, 612-145-0359

Don't Forget to Bring a 'Forks Over Knives' DVD - It could be the most important movie you will ever watch. And, it is available at many WholeFoods stores, online at Amazon and at the FOK website (click link below). Bring a copy of the movie on DVD to share with all your old and new friends.

What are people saying? "A film that can save your life," Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times; "Richly inspiring," Kevin Thomas, The Los Angeles Times; "I loved it and I need all of you to see it," Dr. Oz, The Dr. Oz Show. (If you can't obtain a copy, I do have one to lend.) - Cheryl Hugle, allinharmony [- at -] gmail.com, www.forksoverknives.com/, 612-114-7446, Baja California Sur

Need Land For Animal Sanctuary - We would like to establish a farm animal sanctuary to rescue several animals being held in deplorable conditions in Pescadero. In order to do this, we first need a piece of land nearby where these animals can be taken. Any unused property ~1/3 acre and up in Pescadero would be ideal.
  • Do you have land that you are not planning to use for a couple of years? Maybe 2 or 3?
  • Would you be willing to let us care for some animals there?
If your property is already fenced, that would be excellent, otherwise, we will make that improvement ourselves. By lending your property, you will enable us to move quickly forward with our planned rescue. We hope not only to create a sanctuary to rescue farm animals being abused, but eventually to open up the sanctuary to the public for educational purposes, a place where people can come and meet the animals and get to know them, not as commodities but as the special creatures they really are.

Eventually, we hope to build a kiosk to prepare and sell vegan hot dogs, hamburgers, ensaladas, soy and coconut milk ice creams and sodas at the same location so that when tourists come to meet the animals, they can also enjoy a cruelty free picnic. (Who wants to eat pork sausage while bonding with a pig?)

Any revenue we obtain will pay for food and water for the animals and the other expenses of running the sanctuary. We will start small: A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. ... But ultimately become an important part of the cultural, tourist and educational offerings of the area. If you can help with land or want to get involved in other ways, please contact me. - Cheryl Hugle, allinharmony [- at -] gmail.com, allinharmony.org, Todos Santos

Sweetheart Cat Needs Home - Lovable, affectionate, friendly and well mannered. This "street cat" has been spayed, is young but not too, probably around a year old. She's been given flea treatment, fed well for a few weeks and in good shape now. But we are leaving for the states at the end of November and she needs to find a permanent home. - Colleen Ray, 805-712-1664, Todos Santos

Found Puppy - I found a small, tan, female puppy with a green collar Saturday afternoon in front of Caffe Todos Santos. She seems to be 2-4 months old perhaps, very clean, and very healthy. I assumed her owner was close by but nobody knew anything about her. We later believed she may have gone missing the night prior because our dogs were barking at a small animal that night. She's being taken care of at the Old Charles Stewart home (Obregon & Centenario, next to Caffe Todos Santos) if the owner happens to find this ad. - Janine Wall, coneyislandgreen [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-152-4499, 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

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
