Community Calendar Listings - There has been some confusion about what goes into the Online Community Calendar and the Featured Events sections. These sections are intended for non-recurring events. For this reason we normally don't include "Happy Hours," "Daily Specials," "Weekly Classes," or other repeating events, activities or workshops. Otherwise, the number of listings would double or triple each week, making them less useful. We may occasionally include an announcement for the start of a series of classes or workshops, at our option.

Also, to help ensure your event or workship is included in the Online Community Calendar or the Workshops and Meetings sections, please also submit your event announcements here: http://www.bajawesternonion.com/submit-event.asp. Thanks for your help and support. - The Baja Western Onion

A Gift For You - Many are already calling The World Peace Diet the most important book of the century. The author recently licensed it under Creative Commons so now everyone can download it and enjoy it for free. This is a wonderful gift that is profoundly illuminating and empowering. I would not be surprised if the author wins the Nobel Peace Prize for this work. To download a free .pdf of this book go to: http://www.worldpeacediet.org/download2.htm

What people are saying: "I believe The World Peace Diet is the most important book of the 21st century. If you read but one book in your life, make it The World Peace Diet." - James Macy, M.D.

John Stephens: "I was at Green Festival today in Seattle, and attended a talk by Congressman Dennis Kucinich, where he talked about how individuals can make a difference by changing their diet. He recommended your book, The World Peace Diet, and even held up a copy of it for everyone to see, during his talk." - Cheryl Hugle, allinharmony [- at -] gmail.com, www.worldpeacediet.org/, 612-114-7446

Stupid Questions - 1. Any advice on the best/cheapest car insurance for Baja? Any experience buying it online? Car registered in BC. 2. How to get money to TS?

Get pesos/US$ here & hide in the car? - Marcia Stromsmoe, marciastromsmoe [- at -] gmail.com, Todos Santos
