East Cape Music Festival 2012 - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - November 18th -mark this in your calendar for the best, one-day music festival in Baja. The East Cape Music Festival will be held at the Los Palmas de Cortez in Los Barriles. It will start on a Sunday afternoon and rock into the evening. This is a benefit concert to raise money for the local Asociación de Artes del Marde Cortez A.C. 100% of the money raised will go to promote the love of art and music in the schools in the East Cape. The Los Palmas de Cortez is the perfect setting to provide a carnival-like atmosphere for you to laze, eat, drink, dance, suntan, soak in the pools and definitely party to an exciting combination of Rock and Latino music. We want to offer you the best party Baja has to offer. The event is sure to be talked about for months after. You do not want to miss this one!

We have a great line up of talent but we will only let out one secret today: We have secured the amazingly talented duo of the sounds of Alex DePue's stinging fiddling combined with the guitar mastery of Miguel De Hoyos. De Pue/De Hoyos have performed throughout North America, opening for the Philadelphia Orchestra, appearing on international TV for the Mrs. World Pageant, featured at the International Film Festival and Art Walk in Imperial City, CA, at our very own Cabo Wabo, as well as throughout Mexico for government dignitaries and diplomats. They will leaving you standing in awe of their talents and your belly sore from laughter at their onstage humor.

Stay tuned for more press releases as we introduce the line up throughout the coming months. PS: We are also hoping to secure a renowned international talent from New York City. Who could it be? - www.eastcapearts.com/music_festival.html

Note to Eric Ochoa - Eric, the Hunters have sold their home in Todos Santos and, much to our sadness, the new owners begged to have the cow painting of Barbara Perkins' cow painted by Eric Ochoa at our begging. We let the new buyer family buy it and it remains in Todos Santos with a family who felt the painting to be very special. We are sad to have sold in Todos Santos but financial burdens triumphed. We miss all of you. Thank you, Barbara and Eric. - Kathleen Hunter, kathleenhunter [- at -] comcast.net

Email Account Hacking - Each week, we receive spam Emails sent from the accounts of people we know but that were not sent by the account owner. Instead some low-life hacker has managed to get hold of the owner's username and password and is sending spam from the owner's account. This seems to most often happen with Hotmail, Yahoo, and AOL accounts.

The contents of these spam messages range from links to "Get Rich Quick/Work From Home" schemes and virus-infected web sites to outright con jobs pretending to be the Email Account owner stranded during some calamity on vacation and pleading for you to send them money. Often, the scammer changes the password to lock the owner out of their own account and, eventually, the Email service provider closes the account for spamming.

These hackers are scumbags for sure, but the real cause of the problem is almost always the fault of the Email account owner letting their guard down and revealing their usernames and passwords on a phony web site, using a public computer or one with no virus protection, or using simple passwords that are easily cracked.

Please help to stop this abuse and learn how to protect your account. Here is information on how you can prevent this from happening to you: www.switched.com/2011/02/24/what-to-do-email-account-hacked/ - The Baja Western Onion

Stepping Out - Food, Music, Arts and Entertainment

Exhibit: Jill Casty Glass & Metal Sculptures - The internationally recognized American artist Jill Casty is having the first exhibition of her unique work in Mexico. The Inauguration of the show is Saturday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m. at Galeria and Café La Encantada, located in La Paz Centro on Belisario Dominguez near Cinco de Mayo. Jill’s joyful sculptures of brilliantly colored fused glass combined with a variety of metals have been presented in galleries and commissioned for public and private sites in the U.S. and Italy. In a previous stage of her career in the United States, she created monumental standing sculptures (up to 30 feet tall) for cities and dozens of sets of mobiles and other forms of aerial art for both commercial and civic locations.

These glass sculptures are wall-hanging pieces, like bold and dramatic paintings or collages, or standing pieces, for floor or table-top. They combine the lyrical, color-rich expressiveness of the layered textures of the glass fusions with the strength of metal. As the American critic Lisa Crawford Watson has written about Jill’s work: “There are sculptural echoes here of the dramatic flow and sweep, the tensions of abstract expressionism, especially the paintings of Helen Frankenthaler; of the more tranquil rhythms, sharp and clean lines of contemporary geometric abstraction, as in the mobiles of Alexander Calder; of the abstracted essences of nature and its wonders, as in the paintings of Georgia O’Keefe. Yet, ultimately, in all their variations, her works are vibrant forms of joy. Bringing a moment of grace and celebration of life in the lights and delights of color and form.”

Needs Fry Pans - Hi all, just want to drop you a note that I have invented a new product line and would like to see if you want a few and I will bring them down with me next trip south. I have made a silicone pan handle with those extra strong magnets we see sticking to all kinds of products. And I also made a spatula with corresponding magnets. The result is a spatula that sticks to the pan handle and is easily removed when you need to flip or stir. This saves the spatula from getting burnt, saves from getting a traditional spoonrest from getting dirty because the spatula drips right back into the pan. Right now I am not selling them from my website but from another site that is similar to kickstarter if you are familiar with kickstarter. This one is FundaGeek. Same principle you order and when the funding closed I receive the funds and ship the product. I am in the process of designing and will tool a new universal model that will attach to cast iron pans and many other small and medium pans. This is really ideal for people camping, RVs, Boats and a great gift for weddings, college students, Christmas and so on. As I said buy them now and I will give all people down here free shipping. I also run the www.la-ventana.info site and give the mosquito tips you see. - Dean Devolpi, dean [- at -] la-ventana.com, www.fundageek.com/project/detail/461/Magnetic-Spoon-Rest, La Paz

Perfect Cat Needs Home -->> - This young beauty wandered into our yard a few days ago. Our donkeys love her, but our aged cat will not tolerate her, so she needs a home. If she is lost and you are her owner, please be in touch right away. Otherwise, if you are looking for a cat, this one is top drawer. - Catanya And Robert Saltzman, azoth7 "at" gmail.com, 612-132-8890 or 612-132-9060

<<---This Little Guy Found a Casa! - The Baja Western Onion was notified that this little guy found his forever home. Good news to share!

Did You Lose Your German Shepard Mix Dog Near Punta Lobos? - About 6 p.m. on April 4, on the dirt road to Punta Lobos (just before the water treatment plant), there was a medium-sized German Shepard "mix" dog (looking lost and confused!) standing in the middle of the road. I have permission (with much cooperation given)to operate a feeding station at the plant for abandoned dogs. While setting out clean water and food, this dog approached - but not too closely. I was unable to determine male/female - but this dog has obviously been well cared for. He/she has beautiful eyes, a fluffy coat with black/tan color mix and a fluffy tail - and was VERY hungry.

It is a huge problem for any strange dog to pass by the houses on the last block before the open road to the beach in an attempt to "go home." There is a large pack of dogs that will intimidate and attack any stray dogs. If you have any idea who's dog this is, please e-mail or call - this dog needs your help! - Cindy Murray, cindyfenix [- at -] yahoo.com, 145-0666, Todos Santos

Lost Cat - Someone's lost cat turned up at our house in Las Tunas. Young, affectionate, white with light brown coloring. - Mike Lund, mikeandmirinbaja [- at -] gmail.com, 612-1345-347

Bacero Needs A New Home - The owner of this dog died on the 4 lane by Home Depot 2 weeks ago. I have photos of him and he is beautiful. His name is Bacero and he is about 35 lbs. He is around 1+ year old or so. He needs to be neutered and that can be done at the shelter for free. He has no ticks or flees and is healthy. His color is black and white. Ask me for photos. The ideal place would be with a yard or on a ranch. He needs a new loving family. He is being foster cared for now. Please email or call Sharon Armstrong at 624-145-8073 and Cell, 624-113-3959 in Cabo. He is house trained and very smart. He is available for free. He would make someone a great companion, caboflygirl [- at -] gmail.com, Cabo San Lucas
