Blues Festival This Sunday - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - "The City of Peace Blues Festival" is Sunday, March 4, starting 6 p.m. It's on the waterfront, on the dock of the Muelle Fiscal (that's the wide dock with a little lighthouse at the entrance, more or less across the street from La Fuente ice cream store with its polka dot tree). Tickets are 100 pesos and 200 pesos, with 20 per cent of the proceeds benefiting Centro Mujeres' cervical cancer prevention program. You can buy tickets at the KM64 Rock Shop (on Belisario Dominguez at the corner of Cinco de Mayo) and at Centro Mujeres AC, (Márquez de León 480 - B between Revolución and Serdan).

The host band is Bluz Explozion, so I'll be playing some harmonica. And I'm excited that two of the visiting star performers are killer harp players — Follaje's Jorge García Ledesma from Mexico City and David Matthews from San Francisco. I've posted information on www.rozinlapaz.com (or, if your browser is cranky, go to www.rozinlapaz.com/rozinlapaz/Home.html). - The Baja Western Onion

Thanks - Amy, odeaamy [- at -] gmail.com, Todos Santos

Mini Split A/C - Where can we buy a mini split AC unit ourselves in La Paz or Cabo? Anyone have any input on expected costs for a dual zone unit with one condenser to service a small house? Bolt71 [- at -] hughes.net

PC Technical Support Telephone Scam - Please be wary and do not talk to any tech support agents who cold call you with a proposition to fix your PC remotely. There have been many upset victims who have had their credit cards charged for hundreds of dollars. These fake PC technicians will call users via telephone or Skype and ask to do a remote access to your PC to diagnose any problems by looking for malware. These tricksters may use (usually free) software to clean your PC and then will try to up-sell you to a yearly tech support plan. Here is a YouTube video posted by Symantec documenting an actual scam incident: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhV6rIgyQ-s

It should be obvious: Do not let anyone who cold calls you remotely access your PC or give them your credit card number! But, as it's been mentioned before, you really should be running anti-virus protection on your computer and make absolutely sure it's working and up to date. Many people get a free introductory subscription with a new PC, or buy a year of protection, then forget to renew it or turn off the virus updates. They think they're protected when they're not. If you don't already have an anti-virus program installed, or if you aren't 100% sure yours is working, up to date, or not expired, here are some very good programs you can download and use for Free: Also, here is a Free Norton Security Scan you can run remotely: security.symantec.com/sscv6/home.asp - Alan, moderator [- at -] bajawesternonion.com

La Santeña And Hotel Casa Tota - ♪ If you like Piña Coladas... ♪ Sorry - just heard that song. But we do have piña coladas. And lots of other great drinks, Baja wines, smoothies, salads, fresh fish, creative dishes, super burros, friendly staff, great outdoor seating with frequent cowboy sightings... *sigh*

We start serving breakfast at 7AM and serve dinner until 10PM. Drinks till 11PM. And if you drink too much, or just need a fix of telenovela television, or you've been camping for weeks and a hot shower and a jacuzzi and fluffy towels you don't have to wash sounds like heaven- you can roll right into one of our stylish and reasonable rooms.

So that's a bunch of good reasons to come visit us. I also think our staff is adorable and funny, but I am biased. Hope to see you here at Hotel Casa Tota and La Santeña in historic downtown Todos Santos!
