Good Gardener Available - Antonio, a 26-year-old, local university graduate, is doing all kinds of yard work and, in a pinch, does really good housework as well. When he leaves an area of the grounds where he has been working it is a real pleasure to see the details taken care of, too. There is no mess, the area is raked, the hose is coiled and his sensitive, artistic perspective has imprinted on yet another area of the grounds. I am so grateful. If you would like to meet him, please call or write. 300 pesos daily (6 hours). Thanks, Janel (I don't answer the phone much. I do answer e-mail.) - Janel Beeman, janelb3 [ -at- ] yahoo.com, 145-0073

Flying Fido And Morris Into Mexico, Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Useful Article from Baja Insider 12/12/11: (1) You will need a Original Health Certificate completed by a Vet,. The documentation should verify that the dog has received all its shots. Do Not Try To Use A Photocopy. Rabies Shot not over 1 year old. (yes in the states it is 3 years but not Mexico Upon arriving at the airport, after clearing customs you will need to import the dog. This is pretty painless. They take your health certificate back to the office photocopy it and bring you the import papers with an official stamp. Hope that helps. Jim Hall
(2) Mexico Customs, currency & airport tax regulations details: www.iatatravelcentre.com/MX-Mexico-customs-currency-airport-tax-regulations-details.htm. All pets require a veterinary health certificate, issued not more than 5 days before arrival. For dogs and cats, health certificate must include: - (for pets older than 3 months) rabies vaccination history issued within 12 months before arrival [NOTE: Rule has changed since 2009. Now every 3 years - Editor]. If rabies vaccination history is not included, rabies vaccination certificate must be attached. - attestation that the pet is free from ECTO and ENDO parasites (or a deworming certificate). Further information can be found at: www.senasica.gob.mx ("Phytozoosanitary Inspection" and "When travelling, bring your pet"). And for a much more detailed description of the process: www.senasica.gob.mx/?Idioma=2&id=623 - Sheryl, Owner of La Paz Gringos
Mexico recently changed the rabies policy. We flew into SJD In October and were asked to present health certificates for our dog and cat. They registered the animals and presented me with papers welcoming them into Mexico. The person who helped us also told me that the policy for rabies had changed in Mexico from a shot each year had changed to a shot every three years, just like in the USA

Comparing Mexican Cheeses to US, Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Here some answers I got to my Mexican cheese question. www.mexconnect.com/articles/2155-a-guide-to-mexican-cheese-queso-mexicano. About cheeses; Manchego is like Mozzarella, Chihuahua is like Monterrey Jack. The cookbooks published by the East Cape Guild, East Cape Cooks and Amigos, have a complete section with descriptions and comparisons of Mexican cheeses as well as translations of spices, fish, cuts of meat, chilies and other Mexican cooking ingredients.
Queso Asadero or Queso Oaxaco is much more like Mozzarella - it's very mild, melt-y and gooey. Queso Manchego is like Meunster - a mild yet slightly firm white cheese - great in sandwiches and salads.
New Regulations for Absentee Voting for US Citizens living Outside The US, Courtesy La Paz Gringos - The Consular Section staff at the U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana is ready to assist you in completing your Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) -- the form you need to complete this year to register to vote in the 2012 elections as an overseas absentee voter. Our purpose is to inform and educate you about your voting rights, to ensure you are able to exercise your right to participate in elections for federal offices (President, Vice President, Senator, and Representative), and to assist you with voting in state or local elections, if allowed by your state.
New absentee voting laws are in effect for the 2012 elections. You will no longer automatically receive ballots based on a previous absentee ballot request. All U.S. citizens outside of the United States who want to vote by absentee ballot in the 2012 primary and general elections must complete a new Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) every year if they wish to vote from abroad. States are now required to send out ballots 45 days before an election. No matter what state you vote in, you can now ask your local election officials to provide your blank ballots to you electronically (by email, internet download, or fax, depending on your state). You can now also confirm your registration and ballot delivery on-line. Be sure to include your email address on the form to take advantage of the electronic ballot delivery option. This is the fastest and most reliable way to receive your ballot on time, and we strongly recommend that every overseas voter take advantage of it. Learn more at the Federal Voting Assistance Program's (FVAP) website www.FVAP.gov.
For information about election dates and deadlines, subscribe to FVAP's Voting Alerts (vote [ -at- ] fvap.gov). FVAP also shares Voting Alerts via Facebook and Twitter. If you have any questions about registering to vote overseas, please contact the US Consulate General's Voting Assistance Officer at (664) 997-2000, or at ACSTijuana [ -at- ] state.gov. - Posted by Dennis and Susan Ross sailboat [ -at- ] sprintmail.com

By blending ancient Taoist teachings with the knowledge of Oriental Medicine, Cosmological Studies, Depth Psychology, Contemporary Science, and Sound Healing principals, a powerful and innovative methodology has evolved that is deeply harmonic and transformative.
