News and Events, Questions and Answers

Hogar Del Nino - Thank You! - Many thanks to those who responded to the recent request for meat/protein items. Your donations were greatly appreciated and put to immediate use. Thanks also to the donors for the new clothesline system which has been built and put into use! All types of food and household items are always in short supply. Items which would be especially appreciated now are:
  • fresh veggies and fruits (from your garden or the markets)
  • fruit juices (can be bought in cases at Sam's, Costco and City Club)
  • toilet tissue, bath soap and shampoo
Food items can be donated at Galeria de Todos Santos.

As the summer school break begins, more recreation options at the Hogar would be very beneficial for the children. If you would like to donate bags of concrete or money to help build a half court basketball court, please contact Nancy Serfas at NancySerfas [- at -] aol.com or Nancy Naigle at the email address which follows. If you have an idea for a summer art project for the children, please contact Nancy Serfas. As always, thank you for helping the children. - Nancy Naigle, nnaigle [- at -] att.net, 612-178-0040

Dogs In Cabin Issue Update - From Allyson Williams' Blog at jaltembabaylife.com/blog/2012/06/new-no-pets-in-cabin-policy-for-mexico/:
June 25, 2012 Update (11:30am) – I received an update from Lic. José Armando Garcia Nuño this morning. The new Circular (PDF Format), CO AV-07.8/07 R2, is dated June 21, 2012 and has been posted on the SCT website. In his email, Sr. Garcia stated that: "The Aeronautical Authority has published a document (Circular compulsory) that allows airlines to transport pets in the passenger cabins. Airlines must meet the mandatory circular immediately as soon as they are notified. The airlines must allow pets to enter the passenger cabins immediately." He also wanted to remind me that "this new document is NOT a new regulation, simply a document that clarifies the doubts with regard to the Law on Civil Aviation." He clarified this statement in another email by saying "The document that now [permits pets into the cabin] is a temporary measure." He is currently working on reforming article 107 of the law of Civil Aviation.

I have been informed by a group in Cozumel who is working closely with the airlines that "this circular was sent to all airlines on Friday." Obviously, the airlines will need a little time to re-implement this policy, update their websites, etc. I will post as I learn more. Over the weekend, I received several emails asking what is needed to travel with pets to and from Mexico. In anticipation of the revised policy, people are obviously starting to think about flying with their pets again, so I have included a link to our Pets Travel Tips.
You can contact the Mexico Tourism Board to express your concerns and support in repealing the No Pets In Cabin" directive. Please refer to "Article 2.1.2 in the Circular Obligatoria ID: CO AV-07.8/07 R2 issued by the Direccion General De Aeronautica Civil.

Stepping Out - Food, Music, Arts and Entertainment

Hotel Casa Tota And La Santeña In Downtown Todos Santos - Don't sit on the sidelines and let it all just pass you by. Stand up! And Sing! And support our local musicians and rappers.

Friday, June 29, at 8 p.m.: M.C. Shipper Mtz, Chef Tony Peralta of K-L, Adrian from Los Traviesos on the accordion, and an all star cast are returning for a command performance at Hotel Casa Tota after tearing the place up last month.

This is also your big chance to be part of the show. If you are bored, you are boring. COME SING! Hell, you can hibernate all summer to lick your wounds if it all goes pear-shaped and your particular karaoke song is the worst ever performed. It's not likely, but neither are a lot of things that happen down here, so let's not rule it out. You could actually do the worst karaoke performance in the history of karaoke. But at least you'd always have that feather in your cap. Also, the screen is giant, so yes, you can see the words. And we have tequila, which we have discovered is the best short term voice training available. And, it's cathartic. This, I swear.

Food and drink specials, revelry, live accordion, freestyle rappers, tequila, nervous singers, karaoke, police, puppies, hippies, bikers, rancheros, pochos, Canadians, Hesed- it's all going on at Hotel Casa Tota. Get in the mix, already. www.HotelCasaTota.com, Todos Santos HotelCasaTota [- at -] gmail.com, www.HotelCasaTota.com, 612 145 0590, Todos Santos

Am I Cute Or What? - Someone put this tiny little guy into a yard in downtown Todos Santos and no one has come looking for him.

Found Puppy - While we are house and dog sitting in Todos Santos at El Cine Viejo, someone left a puppy in the yard. He is light brown with soft hair and black markings on his sweet face. Maybe a dachshund mix Mexican puppy. Probably 7-8 weeks old and will likely be a small to medium size dog. Problem: the home owners don't want another dog and we are leaving for the States in 2 weeks, as you know we can't take him with us. Please help! If you want him come by, he will be in the yard if we aren't home. Feel free to take him. Or, if you know where we can take him, please let us know. Can't post pictures so email me and I will get right back to you. Help some Gringo's out. - Denise Crain, denisercrain [- at -] yahoo.com, Todos Santos
