Comments, Questions and Answers

Washboard Roads - Can someone please explain to me, and not that is going to make a difference, why a flat road and round wheels create the washboard roads we drive on. I lived in Northern Ca. and drove on plenty of dirt roads and don't recall ever having this problem. - Rick Plaia, rickplaia[-at-], 6121538124, Todos Santos

Thank You, CCC - A public thank you to the CCC store in Cabo San Lucas for the return of my billfold which I accidentally left in their store one evening a couple of nights ago. The next morning I returned, holding my breath with my fingers crossed, to find the employees had noted the incident on the daily log, and the billfold was sealed in a strong plastic bag. It was returned with all credit cards, money, and other valuables completely intact. Kudos to them and MUCHAS GRACIAS. - Janning Kennedy, janningk[-at-], 612 147 4343, Todos Santos

Share Mail Box - Looking for someone to share mail box in Cabo. Need to live in Pescadero or Todos Santos. I already have the mail box which will give you a mailing address in the U.S. - Sylvia Redondo, cigar00[-at-], 612-142-8249, Pescadero

Restaurant and Food News

Dinner And A Movie Night At Buena Vida - This Tuesday we will be showing the movie "La Vie En Rose." It is a film about the famous French singer, Edith Piaf, whose life was a blend of joy and tragedy but whose music lives on 50 years after her death. I absolutely love this film. Every time I see it I am left feeling so sad yet I can't help but watch it again and again. The make-up, the music, the drugs, the booze, the French language. I absolutely cannot resist it! We will be offering our normal menu. I will not even try to prepare a buffet of French cuisine! We will start taking orders at 6:00 P.M. and the movie will begin at 8:30 P.M. (due to the extreme heat, the later the better!). So please come join us! French with English subtitles. - Jessie Rutowski, jessierutowski[-at-], 6121343100, Todos Santos

Real Estate For Sale

Selling - For sale Cafe Vonn. Turn Key operation. Great location. For information please call 6121425612 - Ivonne Merino, 6121425612

Important Update From Paraiso California Realty ! - Please note that we have many lots (approximately half acre) for sale in Los Cerritos Surf Beach starting at $20,000, those with ocean view usually start at $45,000, and ocean front lots (not that many at this time) start at $390,000. And since we are a member of not only the Todos Santos MLS, but also the Los Cabos MLS we can also search for that special property in Los Cabos, Todos Santos and La Paz !!This is the best time to present an offer and purchase that special property until the end of September, during this "slow" season (hot weather, tropical storms, and low tourism) the natives/sellers are more than willing to negotiate the sales price. Also, if you are thinking of listing your property for sale, please give us a call for a Free Market Evaluation.

We also offer a "Turn-key Construction Package", from obtaining all Federal, State, and County permits to finishing your home construction to your satisfaction, on-time and on-budget, usually starting at $80 per square feet. One last update, throughout last week all major local newspapers have been running two important ads regarding the "freeze" on sales of properties on the "pan handle" of Los Cerritos. This refers to a lawsuit which apparently affects many lots just south of the Beach Club going all the way almost to Art & Beer (a total of almost 50 acres). Please be very careful if you are thinking of buying or selling property in this area !! For more information on all of the above go to our web site or email and I'll be happy to bring you up-to-date. - Bill, bill[-at-],, 044-612-132-4710, Pescadero
