USA Mail With Miro Multiservicios Is Heaven! - Miro Multiservicios is located just down from the Pemex in town, across from El Molino, totally central, and Alex and Lupita are very attentive and personable. There is no more need to schlep to Cabo (as I did for years) where, at least in my case, there always seemed to be lost mail or long delays with arrival, or not all the mail delivered to me when I finally made the trek. Not to mention additional handling fees for sending mail to the USA even if it had all the postage in place.

Although MBE in Cabo were always very kind I can't tell you how many times I asked (because I learned it was necessary) "Are you sure that is everything?" was told "si" and then the next time I went I would be handed a bag of mail that should have been included with the bags I had collected on my previous visit. The company that handles the mail via Miro Multiservicios is called Postal, they are very organized and systematic, you can renew your mailbox online and pay with your USA credit card in USD. You will get an email from Miro that says "You have mail" and when you pass by Miro to pick it up, the mail is there for you, wrapped and stickered with weight and contents. Really easy and a noticeably cheaper annual expense than MBE in Cabo. Miro Multiservicios also will recycle your electronics (computers, printers, phone etc) and electrical equipment (fans, toasters, etc). I was very apprehensive about making this change to a new USA mail company because I know how frequently they fail after a stint, and I wanted to avoid the ordeal of changing my address across the board in the USA with the transition that would ensue, etc. But, I write today because I am so happy I did, my USA mail (and packages too:~) arrive very fast and Miro Multiservicios is all about serving you. I guess there are some good things about the explosive growth in this town and this is one of them! - Jennifer Rosen, jenniferleighrosen [- at -] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Two Beautiful Dogs Seek Loving Homes - These dogs were found wandering on the highway, tired, hungry, and in danger of being hit by cars. The first dog is a male Golden Retriever approximately two years old. He’s been neutered. His beautiful, shiny, copper-colored coat is in show-dog condition. He sleeps quietly outdoors, doesn’t bark, dig or chew, and is friendly with adults, children and other dogs. He eagerly jumps into the car, and is a quiet, long-distance traveler. He’s been to the vet. The second dog is a female black Labrador Retriever, also about two years old. She’s sweet-natured with a beautiful coat and a friendly temperament. She doesn’t bark, dig, or chew. She is also a great car traveler, and has been to the vet in Todos Santos. Either dog would make a wonderful companion. - Penny Brozda, pennybrozda [- at -] mac.com, 612-147-7550, 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
