Día De Las Madres/Mother's Day In Mexico - May 10 - The government of Álvaro Obregón imported the holiday from the US in 1922, with the newspaper Excélsior making a massive promotion campaign that year. The conservative government tried to use the holiday to promote a more conservative role for mothers in families, which was criticized by the socialists as promoting an unrealistic image of a woman who was not good for much more than breeding.

In the mid-1930s the government of Lázaro Cárdenas promoted the holiday as a "patriotic festival". The Cárdenas government tried to use the holiday as a vehicle for various efforts: stressing the importance of families for national development, benefiting from the loyalty that Mexicans had towards their mothers, introducing new morals to Mexican women and reducing the influence that the church and the Catholic right had on them. The government sponsored the holiday in the schools. However, the theatre plays ignored the strict guidelines from the government and they were filled with religious icons and themes, and the "national celebrations" became "religious fiestas" despite the efforts of the government.

Soledad Orozco García, the wife of President Manuel Ávila Camacho, promoted the holiday during the 1940s, making it into an important state-sponsored celebration. The 1942 celebration lasted a whole week, including an announcement that all women could reclaim their pawned sewing machines from the Monte de Piedad at no cost. There is a consensus among scholars that the Mexican government abandoned its revolutionary initiatives during the 1940s, including efforts to influence Mother's Day. Nowadays, the Día de las Madres is an unofficial holiday in Mexico held each year on 10 May. - Source: WikiPedia, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother%27s_Day#Mexico

Car Theft In Las Tunas - Sad to say, our 1990 Toyota Camry was stolen out of our driveway at 4 a.m. Sunday. Please be on the lookout for a dark red (maroon/cranberry) 4-door Camry with two long cracks on the front windshield and a missing strip of chrome along the driver's side midway on the doors. There are 2 other cars that look similar that we have seen in Todos Santos in the past but only ours has the damaged windshield and the missing chrome. Ours had a South Dakota license plate as well. We are taking more precautions to protect our remaining Toyota truck and advise others to do likewise. Toyotas are popular here with thieves and easy to break into. - Tracy Monk Durland, 612-154-4729, Todos Santos

Help Sought for Flying Support Dog - Has any one flown with a service dog or support dog from Cabo to Canada? West Jet has changed the cut off date to fly dogs so I have to fly him as a support dog. Are they strict at the Cabo airport, or does the dog need tags, or will a letter from a doctor do?
