♫ The Todos Santos Music Festival: Thank You! ♫ - The Palapa Society of Todos Santos is tremendously excited by the unbelievable generosity of the many individuals who helped to make the Todos Santos Music Festival a rousing success during the past three weeks. The amount of money raised will enable us to continue the high quality of our programs as well as to serve even more children and members of our community. You have given us a much needed opportunity to do further good... for this we are grateful and humbled. We will not let you down!

Although the Todos Santos Music Festival would not have been possible without the dedication and countless volunteer hours of numerous others, we would like to especially acknowledge and thank the following key participants:
♫ Festival Generator/Musician: Peter Buck
♫ Festival Organizers: Chloe Johnson & Janice Kinne
♫ Hotel California: Sponsor and creator of an ideal environment for the musicians, audience and dancers; a special thank you to Alejandro Blanco, Fito Blanco, Pedro Castro, Debbie Stewart and the always smiling waiters for all of the extra hours “above and beyond.”
♫ Sponsors: Pacifico Beer and Journal del Pacifico
♫ Visiting Musicians: Scott McCaughey, Steve Wynn, Linda Pitmon, Robyn Hitchcock, Bill Rieflin, Dave Depper, John Ramberg, Kev’n Kinney, Chuck Prophet, Fermando Viciconte, Blake Sennett, Brittany Smith, Olivia Morisco, Mike Mills, Kraig Johnson, Kevin Riley
♫ Local Musicians: Guaycura Band, Flashback, Cowboy,Cosima Rose,Tofito & Students
♫ Plaza MC: Oscar Rosales
Again, thanks to all of you... the organizers, the musicians, the audiences, the citizens of Todos Santos. It has been a remarkable three weeks of fabulous music, friendship and commitment. - The Palapa Society of Todos Santos, info [- at -] palapasociety.org, www.palapasociety.org

Todos Santos Recycling Program To Restart Wednesday February 8th, 2012 - Hello All, Thank you all for respecting the month we took off to clean up the recycling area in Todos Santos. Due to illegal dumping the area was becoming overrun with glass and even non-recyclables. We have been cleaning and will continue to do more before the reopening.

Starting February 8th we will be only taking Plastic, Large Cardboard, and all metals. We will also accept cooking oil from restaurants, or homes if it is in a gallon jug or bigger. No Glass And No Paper or magazines at this time please. We are not accepting these items for the following reasons: 1) We will need to continue to manage the current glass and paper situation before accepting anymore glass. 2) The road construction makes it increasingly difficult to transport glass (and paper) to Cabo due to the wear and tear on our vehicles with heavy loads. Since the beginning of this project in March of 2010, our goal has always been to operate a sustainable program, where every step we took was a successful one. Likewise the step we are taking now is to maintain the sustainability of the program. Please help us by NOT bringing glass or paper. If you are interested in bringing your glass and paper to Cabo, I sincerely urge you to, and I would be happy to instruct you where to bring it. (Colored glass can only be recycled on the first Thursday of the month in Cabo).

Lastly we are hoping to paint the building in town and would love to have any old paint donated in the month of February. Any old lonas (tarps) would be greatly appreciated too! Also we would love to have any volunteers that would like to lend a hand in the month of February on drop off days. Drop off will be from 11-2 Wednesday February 8th. Plastic, Large Cardboard, and all Metals ONLY. Please NO GLASS or PAPER at this time. The suggested donation is still $50 pesos per drop (volunteers can recycle by donating time). Thanks again for your continued support. Let’s make it to the 2- year anniversary in March 2012! - Enviromass Recycling, info [- at -] enviromass.com, www.enviromass.com, 624 196 1846, Todos Santos

RE: Attacks - We received a number of questions and concerns about an anonymously-submitted article that appeared in this last Wednesday's edition of the Baja Western Onion warning readers about assaults in Todos Santos. The warning was vague and did not reference actual events. This is reminder that specific facts, rather than opinions or vague warnings, help our readers determine the validity and seriousness of such alarms, and how to react to them accordingly. As always, we will not reprint the names or identifying information of anyone simply accused of a crime, and ask readers to report all crimes to the local Mexican authorities. - The Baja Western Onion

Baja Night Skies - Courtesy Of The Ventanaview - The Hubble Space Telescope (HST), 44 feet long and about 14 feet wide, will pass over southern Baja Sur several nights this week, each pass lasting between 4 and 5 minutes. Tuesday it will rise West of SW (WSW) around 7:33:30 pm. Wednesday evening the HST will be at its brightest.

It will rise about 7:30pm WSW and pass very near Venus, the extremely bright planet in the west after sunset. About 1 minute 40 seconds later it will graze Uranus (binoculars needed), then heads directly for bright Jupiter overhead and intersect the planet at about 7:33:35pm. It then continues across the sky passing near the bright star Aldebran before fading out inside the giant winter hexagon of 6 bright stars, which includes the brightest star in the night sky, Sirius, situated below the constellation of Orion.

A thin crescent moon will also be near Venus on Wednesday evening. On Thursday the HST will rise around 7:27pm just to the north of Venus and will pass near the waxing crescent moon. TS - The Baja Western Onion

5K Run/Walk Canceled - Unfortunately, it is necessary to provide notice that the 5K run/walk scheduled for March 24, 2012 has been canceled. Hopefully, this event will return in 2013. - Tim Doyle, timsudoyle [- at -] hotmail.com, Todos Santos

Bicycle Wanted - Full suspension adult trail bike wanted to buy or rent for 2-3 months - Les Macneill, marciastromsmoe [- at -] gmail.com, 612 177 7157, Todos Santos

Vehicle Wanted To Rent - Hi, I have been car-sharing for 2 months and now need to find another vehicle to borrow/share from mid Feb - April 9. Just for Todos Santos/Pescadero. Less than 100 Kms a week. Mornings only is fine. Have squeaky clean B.C. licence and really good refs! Might suit older person who would like an occasional driver, shopping done etc. I have no phone so use e-mail please. - Nicola, cortesnic [- at -] hotmail.com, Todos Santos

Gasoline Situation 4th Edition - I have tested the following Pemex stations; Pescadero delivers about 89%. Todos Santos town station delivers about 89%. Todos Santos north delivers just over 95%. LaPaz car wash and other LaPaz stations deliver 100%. I also tested the "myth" that some pumps at these stations deliver full measure, it is a myth! - Name Withheld By Request

A Way To Recharge Your "Banda Ancha" - If you have a cell phone from the same service provider as your banda ancha this method will work to "recharge" it.
1. buy a 500 peso cad at Oxxo or other source
2. Swap banda ancha sim card to cell phone
3. dial *333
4. select option 3
5 enter code from card and end call
6. select text message on cell phone
7. text "BAT30"
8. send to 5050
9. wait for reply text to verify transaction is complete. This may take a couple of minutes. I was pleased to not that I received a "bonus" of 3 gigs for a total of 6 gigs!!
10. transfer sim back to banda ancha. - Les Schubert, lschubert [- at -] platinum.ca, 612 139 1209
