Dog Sitter Needed - Pescadero Area - April 29-May 15 - I am planning to be away for two weeks (my dates are not locked in yet) and need someone to love and care for my small dog. He's a very well behaved 4 1/2 year old, 23lb (10.5kg) neutered terrier/schnauzer. He get's along well with other dogs, but is a bit finicky when it comes to eating. He's a well loved and cuddled dog, accustomed to gringo style (spoiled sweetly) care. At the minimum I'd prefer he be indoors at night.

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".

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".

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
