Road From San Felipe To La Paz - Does anyone know the current condition of the Road From San Felipe To La Paz, that is MEX 5 to MEX 1 via Bahia San Luis Gonzaga intersecting at Chapala Junction. We are getting conflicting reports! We will be driving from Colorado, US to La Paz, MX later this month and would like to cross at Mexicali if the road south from there is in good condition. Or do we have to go all of the way to Tecate or Tijuana??? Any accurate info would be appreciated! Thanks! - Sarah, sawhitfield7 [- at -] gmail.com
White Moths Identified - At last, the mystery moth blanketing Todos is identified: it is Thyrinteina arnobia in the family Geometridae. Sorry, it does not have any widely used common name, either in English or Spanish. You may address it as "moth."
Geometridae is a very large family with thousands of species worldwide and in Mexico. The caterpillars are "inchworms" that move with a characteristic looping fashion; similar caterpillars are common on cabbage and related vegetables as well as on many native plants. T. arnobia has long been known from Baja -- I collected specimens in 1979 -- but it is normally far less abundant. This year, the extraordinary amount of rain allowed food plants to flourish in the desert. With lots to eat, lots of caterpillars survived, pupated, and emerged as the adult moths we know and love. If next season is drier, their numbers will drop and you probably won't even notice them.
The species occurs from southern Texas to Brazil, where it is a pest of eucalyptus plantations. Enter "Thyrinteina arnobia" in Google for more than you want to know. As with virtually all lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) T. arnobia has no health impact on humans. I mention this because there have been some rumors to the contrary. The moth was identified from specimens I caught in Todos last month, thanks to the help of Dr. Jerry Powell, moth specialist at Univ of CA, Berkeley. Feel free to contact me with other bug questions. Pablo Entomologo, Barrio Las Brisas, Todos Santos. paul [- at -] summerinspect.com. paul [- at -] summerinspect.com
Contented Feet - When I read the BWO add reducing the price for a pedicure at Chica's I jumped at the chance. Walking away afterwards with soft, pliable, relaxed and pretty feet I was so delighted I went back in and signed up for once a month. And it was fun to walk through all the beautiful home furnishings at La Canada to do so. Kathie gives a good pedicure and can be reached at 612-142-3160 or ChicaSalon [- at -] gmail.com. Thanks Kathie. I'm feeling really grateful. - Janel, janelb3 [- at -] yahoo.com

Mountain Biking Anyone? - Hi, I just brought my mountain bike down to our place in Pescadero, but don't know any of the trails or any other riders. I look up into those hills and know there HAS to be some great trails and maybe even some singletrack! Any other riders out there? I'm here only until Jan 17th though (this time). There's also an adventure company that does 3 day trips from T.S. to Cabo Pulmo (they drive you back to La Paz, and have a support vehicle to carry all your clothes, food, etc) - but they have a two person minimum. Anyone? Even if you are NOT interested in riding with me but are knowledgeable about some local trails, would love to hear about them. thanks! email me please: larryabaker [-at-]sbcglobal.net - Larry, Todos Santos

Available Help For All - Hello! My name is Rob and I am a new resident in Todos Santos, willing to take on all challenges that you may be facing! Whether you need someone to take care of a garden or house, a pet or maybe that pesky errand in La Paz you can't seem to make time for, I am available on all fronts until the middle of May.
I reside nearby in Las Tunas just past Calle Las Brisas and am friendly, bilingual and enthusiastic about helping those in need. I also have a secret motivational factor in that I am trying to help a stray dog (who has made my house her house) get a tumor removed so we can enjoy our time here. Any occupation will suit me as I have had myriad jobs from mechanically and musically inclined ventures to cleaning and cooking ... quizas hasta pronto! - Robert Benzel, noisilla [- at -] gmail.com, Todos Santos

Lady Kitties in Need of Home - 2 genteel, attractive, mature (spayed)lady felines seeking full time accommodation. We enjoy peaceful, indoor lodging as napping is our preferred past time. Although we do venture outside for reasonable periods of time if the grounds are safe and secure, we do not like being left outdoors at night. We wish for a n/s, pet free environment without rambunctious annoyances. Our needs are simple; fresh water, dry cat food and a bedtime snack ("Temptations" is our favorite). We especially appreciate being brushed regularly and having a daily cleaned litter box of "Scoop Away" available, discreetly placed. We display affection when our needs are met. We require normal health care and can provide a medical history. Qualified, serious inquiries, please. 612-142-1359
