Wanna Work On A Creative Short Film? - Two amateur cinematographers are shooting a short film in and around Todos/Pescadero over the next two weeks. If you have any interest in contributing to the collaborative process we need help in various areas of the production, including but not limited to: actors, extras, drivers, dancers, location scouters, grips, production assistants. If you are a novice filmmaker yourself or have any professional equipment that you'd like to put to good creative use feel free to contact us as well. FilmBaja [- at -] gmail.com

Free Medical Services - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - The President of Mexico ordered that a new free medical service system be implemented and it was, the system is called Seguro Popular which provides doctor consultation and services, hospitalization and medicine for free to each and every person residing in Mexico including foreigners who are residing in Mexico at any Centro de Salud. This free service is available to all foreigners, to acquire it one must present passport, CURP ID card and proof of domicile (electrical or water bill with one`s name on it), it is not necessary to show the No Inmigrate, Inmigrante or Inmigrado Permit issued by immigration or Carta de Naturalizacion; for foreigners who do not have a property there is a 100 pesos charge. To register one must go to the registration center (Centro de Afilicacion) in La Paz, said center is located on the blv. where the Municipal palace (Palacio Municipal) is located and more precisly in front of the Velodromo. - Lic. J.E. Beaulne

Blue Cross In Mexico - Would anyone have any up to date information on Blue Cross now offering coverage for ex pats now living full time in BCS? Heard they were in Guadalajara, responding to requests from that large American retirement community, and I'm curious if this coverage now is also available here in BCS. Comments and information most appreciated. Kevin Lynk, Cabo kevinlynk [- at -] prodigy.net.mx - Kevin Lynk, kevinlynk [- at -] prodigy.net.mx

Questions - I have four questions for the readers of The Onion:
  1. Seek advice for truck to buy & leave in TS. good mileage, easy repair. Buy in Canada (BC) or Baja? Register BC or Baja?
  2. How to keep critters out of clothing stored over the summer?
  3. An upholsterer in TS who can replace the leather on a traditional Mexican chair?
  4. Canadian (BC) living full time in Mexico- what do you do for health care? OAS? Your secrets are safe, we might do the same thing.
Thanks! - Marcia, marciastromsmoe [- at -] gmail.com, Todos Santos

Haul Trailer La Paz To San Diego - I need my 12' x 6' trailer hauled from La Paz to San Diego. My MX cell is 624-164-2340. I can send you a picture of the trailer - Todd Thompson , toddt2000 [- at -] aol.com, 937-478-4800

Property Taxes - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Each year municipalities in Baja California Sur provide a discount during a certain period, if one pays during that period and gets the discount, one can not ask an additional discount because of age. In other words, if one is older than 60 and has the ID card from the Instituto Nacional de los Personas Adultas Mayores (Inapam formally called Insen), one can get the 50% discount applied only on the full amount of the property taxes, NOT on the reduced amount during the discount period. - Lic. J.E. Beaulne

Need Small Package Brought Down From North - Need backpack kit, about 1 1/2 ft by 1 ft. by 3 in. brought to Todos Santos. Will mail it to your address. Will return the favor sometime (I go up and down) or will pay a fee for the service. - Christine Douglas, cdoug1946 [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-103-7021, Todos Santos

Low Cost Shuttle Van To/from Airport - I recently flew to Cabo and discovered an airport shuttle service that goes to Cabo San Lucas, Todos Santos and La Paz. It is just like the small van services one would find in the states, transporting up to 7 people at a time with room in the back for luggage. The service can be booked online and only costs $240 pesos (one way)from SJD airport to Todos Santos. The two times I took it I had English speaking drivers, both very congenial. The online link is: www.ecobajatours.com/Principal.aspx. - Barry, Todos Santos

Pet Owner Alert: Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Bacon Treats manufactured in China are killing dogs as evidenced by this link: news.yahoo.com/chinese-pet-treats-linked-900-dog-deaths-illnesses-180336402--abc-news-topstories.html

Please Keep The Bocana Clean - Please don't place trash bags in the Las Tunas bocana for pick up since there is No trash service. It has become a real problem as the neighborhood dogs rip them open and scatter the garbage everywhere. Thank you. - Mike

No Photo Appeared With Your Announcement? - If you submitted a photo with your announcement and it wasn't included, here's why:
  • The link was bad. All links need to end in .JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, or .PNG or they will not display. Links that end in .HTM, .HTML, or a bunch of numbers won't work.
  • The photo's dimensions were too big. Photos need to be no larger than 250 X 250 pixels (about 3.5"), otherwise they take up too much space.
  • The photo's file size was too large. All photos need to be under 30 KiloBytes in file size, otherwise they take too long to load.
We don't have time to fix too-large photos or bad links so we delete them. We've posted a detailed tutorial online explaining how to correctly add photos to your announcement. You can find it here: www.bajawesternonion.com/how-to-post-photos-with-your-ad-or-article.asp

Of course, if this is too much for you, we can resize, upload and host your photo on the Baja Western Onion web site for only $5.00 US per photo. Be sure to let us know in the "Additional Comments" box when you submit an announcement. Then send the photo by Email to Moderator [- at -] bajawesternonion.com. Be sure to reference your announcement so we know which image goes with which announcement. Payment can be made to Our PayPal account at: Advertising [- at -] bajawesternonion.com. - The Baja Western Onion, The Baja Western Onion

Help Save A Starving Dog - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - When traveling north (or south) we all see the starving homeless dogs along the road. Especially around San Quintin and the towns north. So, if you see a dog in distress and can stop safely, please call one of these groups and get transporting directions, instead of leaving them to starve and die on the road side. To help you with your rescue, have an old blanket, kibbles, water bowl and a loop collar leash in your car. If you are not comfortable transporting them, even offering them food will help.

If You See An Animal In Distress, Call: The Baja Animal Sanctuary, near Rosarito, 22 miles south of the San Ysidro border 619-786-7928 www.BajaAnimalSanctuary.org. C.A.R.E in the Punta Banda area, 1/2 hour south of Ensenada. 626 145 0484 www.carebaja.org. Please print these numbers and carry them with you. Together we can make a change. - ALMA Humanitaria, A.C., www.almacares.com The Baja Western Onion
