Good Times And Good Information At The Fourth Organic Festival In San Jose! - Here is some basic information for this outstanding, upcoming event:
Message For US Citizens -- Reduced Services Consular Agency Los Cabos - As of March 24, 2012, the U.S. Consular Agency in Los Cabos will no longer be able to provide most routine passport and notarial services until further notice. The office will continue to accept emergency cases involving U.S. citizens during business hours, as well as passport renewal applications for applicants that qualify to use the DS-82 or "Passport Renewal by Mail" forms.
Services such as DS-11 or "long form" passport applications and notarials that require the presence of an agent or consul will be available intermittently.

Please call 624-243-4566 with questions or to add your name to the waiting list.

Just A Suggestion for Dog Owners - For those of us who own dogs and walk them on the beach: Had more than one person this year who complained to me regarding my dogs poop on the beach. I simply told them that i always bury it, and if it was bothering them, to do the same. If you own dogs and walk on the beach be considerate of others and simply dig a hole next to the poop and it drops in rather nicely, cover it up and no more complaints. - Name Withheld by Request
