New Caretakers Available For The Summer - We retired in November from professional careers (psychologist and IT professional), sold our home and headed straight to Baja for a "creative sabbatical of indeterminate length". Currently 'house sitting' in Las Tunas and have decided to stay in the area to explore full-time retirement. Available June 1st through summer.

John is a computer expert and 'jack of all trades' who likes to keep busy (eg. has even learned how to repair water valves on our tinaca) and is currently consulting with a local internet provider. Laura is working at being an artist, and figuring out what else she would like to do in retirement... We have a complementary set of skills including all aspects of home maintenance; computer application/programming and website maintenance; general small business management; good with people...

Local references, no criminal history, valid driver's licenses, transportation, no drugs, kids or pets...professional, reliable, honest, dependable, conscientious, clean (John was a Boy Scout ;-)

My mother always advised that "if you leave things better than you found them, you will always be invited back". We strive to do this in all of our conscientious and collaborative relationships with others. Would love to meet and discuss your house sitting needs. - Laura Sheppard, ljs46 [- at -] hotmail.com, Todos Santos

RE: Loss Of US "Big Four" Networks - As reported last issue of The Baja Western Onion, the satellite TV service provider, All American Direct (AKA My Distant Networks and Sobongo), will cease operations at midnight, February 25. I received a number of questions about this. Here are some answers:

Dish Network clients who already have a New York account address with Dish Network are not affected. For those receiving SF and/or NY locals through an All American Direct account, here are some possible solutions to restore the Networks:
  1. If you have an RV registered in your name, you can get the NY Locals in SD through Dish Network.
  2. Secure a new account address somewhere in the New York City broadcast area. This would enable reception of the main NYC Network channels through Dish Network in Standard Definition (no PBS).
  3. Add a dish to your current setup, enabling reception of Network channels (including PBS) in HD from a third satellite. You'll also need an account address near Lexington or Louisville, KY, Franklin or Harrisburg, PA, Jacksonville, FL, Cincinnati, OH, Little Rock, AR, Charleston, WV or Springfield, MO.
  4. Switch to Shaw Direct (from Canada). Shaw Direct Programming includes many US channels in High Definition and Local Networks with PBS from Seattle/Spokane and/or Buffalo/Detroit. In some cases, existing Dish TV antennas can be modified and reused.
  5. If you have a good, solid Internet connection, you might try streaming Local Network programming through the Internet to your computer or smart TV. Go to www.ustvnow.com. They offer a limited free version, as well as paid options.

Amazing Pool Eliminator - A swimming pool, spa, or large fountain is often your highest energy consumer after air conditioning. The Pool Eliminator will cut this energy cost 50% while extending the life of your main filtration system. The patent-pending Pool Eliminator uses completely safe copper and silver ions to purify water, allowing you an 80% reduction in purchases of harsh pool chemicals. The ionization process also reduces Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), precipitating hard water minerals to gradually eliminate scaling on your pool tiles and water features.

The 100% solar-powered Pool Eliminator is the only all-in-one ionizer and pool filter pump on the market today. The scientific facts available conclude that a combination of chlorine plus the copper and silver system is a proven, safe and economical approach to purifying water in swimming pools and spas. The new dual disinfection method is also easy to implement. This allows a considerable margin of error for maintaining a sanitary pool.

Introductory price is $994 USD or $12,900 Mexican Pesos. No other product in the world has a faster payback time - months, not years. - Charles Shipman, info [- at -] pooleliminator.mx, pooleliminator.mx/, (612) 145-1061, Baja California Sur
