Clarification On UPS - I recently put a short article in the Onion regarding an experience I had with UPS. This was not to reflect on the services Ruben at Multi Servicios Las Palma offers to us. The original documents I sent to the Canadian Government offices were delivered intact and in a very timely manner. Ruben is very professional and courteous as well as being extremely helpful, and speaking English. One of the great services offered by UPS is that they send e-mail tracking notices to your own e-mail address. At no time was my address listed in any of the UPS documents as Ruben let me use his business address. He also let me use his address to have my documents returned to me. I was so impressed with his services that in future all my important packages will be sent through his UPS service. I have full confidence in Multi Servicios Las Palma and through him the UPS services. We are lucky to have him offer this to us right in our own neighbourhood, across from La'Esquina. I am extremely sorry if I inadvertently caused alarm regarding UPS services. Just a reminder: UPS/DHL do not pick up packages at your home, only at the respective office locations. - Sharon Stone, s.stone60 [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-118-8444
ALMA Spay Neuter Clinic In Los Barriles - June 30, Saturday, starting at 8:30 am, ALMA is having a spay neuter clinic for our Mexican neighbor's dogs and cats. It will be held at Las Iguanas market which is in Buenos Aires using their courtyard and one of the empty spaces. If you can volunteer some of your time that day it would be greatly appreciated.

Help Save A Starving Dog - 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.
