Resending Today's Baja Western Onion! - A vigilent reader alerted us to a problem with some broken links in the issue of The Baja Western Onion sent out earlier today (thanks, Jan!). Once we looked into the problem, we found a number of broken links to several sites (including The Baja Western Onion...). We think we've isolated and fixed the cause of the broken links (actually, more than one), so we're sending you out a brand new issue. Please delete the previous issue.

Unfortunately, we often don't have time to test every link in every issue and rely upon our readers to let us know if they spot something. Please send your feedback to moderator [- at -] bajawesternonion.com. Thanks in advance, and we apologise for any inconvenience.

Todos Santos Rocks - Our community shined last weekend all throughout the spay and neuter clinic. The Colorado vets commented several times on what tremendous support we give them. Thank you one and all for food, drinks, hands-on help with the animals, set up, tear down, helping bring in your Mexican neighbors' dogs, providing housing for the vets and their assistants, and yes even massage!!

Special thanks to Paty Baum who went into the local schools before the clinic to educate the kids about the need for sterilization and brought some kids to the clinic to see it first hand. And to the University of Colorado for providing the funding for the medications. Angelique Schornstein and Susan McPherson really make this happen. We owe them a debt of gratitude!!
