Last Call For Help - - Spay and Neuter Clinic this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 21-23, at La Canada del Diablo 9:00 a.m. to sunset. We are in need of someone who can help with laundry Thursday or Friday - pick up at the end of the day and return the next morning. Towels and sheets used for the animals in recovery.
Looks like we have enough able-bodied volunteers but they and the vets get thirsty and need energy - fruit juice and soda are most welcome. We no longer want to have little bottles of water - we will use a garafon with cups to cut down our impact on the environment. Snacks and treats are welcome - fruit, nuts, cookies - to keep up the energy. And please remind your Mexican neighbors and amigos. You might even offer to help them bring in their dogs and/or cats. Gracias!! - Maryann, maryanndoug [- at -] gmail.com
The funds go into an account in the U.S. and are allocated as needed by Friends of Hogar del Nino. We are currently committed to giving them $2,000.00/month for food.

Please feel free to contact with questions or comments. nancyserfas [- at -] aol.com
Card Players Wanted - Euchre, Hearts, Bridge, Spades, Poker - does anyone want to play cards? I know there are others who enjoy playing as much as I do. I'm looking to form a group here in Todos Santos or anywhere else in BCS. Send me a note and let me know the card game you're interested in and when you're available. Looking to connect people for day or night games. Let's Shoot the Moon! - Card Player, cardplayersBCS [- at -] gmail.com, Todos Santos
Hughesnet Gen4 Service Availability In BCS? - Over the last few years, HughesNet has been offering their High-speed Internet service using newer "Ka-band" satellites. Ka-band satellites use spot-beam technology, with beams that are tightly focused on the continental US, with the signal level rapidly fading just outside the US border. For this reason, the only HughesNet technology that will work very far south of the US border is the older Ku-band equipment, and specifically the HN7000S Ku-band modem.
Lately, HughesNet has been sending multiple solicitations to their subscribers via regular mail and Email offering upgrades to the latest Gen4 Ka-band High-speed system, even though some of these subscribers are using Ku-band systems in Mexico. This is because the service addresses for these subscribers are in the US, and HughesNet is assuming their Ku-band systems are located in the US. Please note the signals from the new Gen4 Ka-band satellite Do Not cover BCS, nor anywhere outside of about 100 miles south of the US border. If you attempt to upgrade your HughesNet system in BCS to Gen4, you will be disappointed.
Also, it was just announced last Friday that HughesNet will discontinue new consumer-level service activations for all Ku-band systems. HughesNet will continue to provide Ku service to existing subscribers without interruption. However, no new consumer-level Ku-band service activations will be allowed after today, Tuesday, March 19, 2013. VAR (Value-added Reseller) activations will still be available but at higher monthly rates.
However, our advice for now is that you keep your current HughesNet Ku-band consumer-level service in Mexico active, and transfer ownership to another user instead of deactivating your account. If you deactivate your account, you will lose the consumer-level account and it cannot be reactivated. - Alan, alan [- at -] BajaSatellite.com
