'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the casa,
Not a creature was stirring -- Hijole! Que pasa?
Los ninos were tucked away in their camas,
Some in long underwear, some in piyamas,
While hanging the stockings with mucho cuidado
In hopes that old Santa would feel obligado
To bring all children, both buenos and malos,
A nice batch of dulces and other regalos.
I am not a very good story writer, but I've just got to tell you about our wonderful vacation.
I guess I will start with the night we left home headed for Baja Norte. I picked Jim up at work in Sutter Creek, Ca., at 6:00 P.M. and we were off. I had filled up with gas before I picked Jim up, so I figured I was good until we hit the Grapevine on I-5. Well, we missed the last gas station as we headed up the mountain. The gas meter kept going from a 1/4 of a tank to… Continue

Music ... dance... they are such an important part of the Mexican culture. Last night we celebrated the first anniversary of Hugh and Simone at the Twisted Rose in Bucerias- The Cuban Salsa Band kept the dance floor full as Mexicans and Gringos partied together. Colorful balloons, candlelight, and palm trees in this open air bar and restaurant lent an air of romance, community and the Mexican spirit. As always Hugh greeted every person making them feel like they were part of family. This is why… Continue
I had the opportunity in 2008 at the Orlando NAR convention to be a speaker (presenter? trainer?) on the DOING BUSINESS IN MEXICO course that they have prepared in order to help NAR convention attendees to understand a little bit more on what exactly the process for purchasing property is in Mexico, how it is different from the USA and how to comfortably refer clients to AMPI (Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals - Asociacion… Continue

Mexico eyes next export: Wind energy
In the Mexican state of Baja California, the government and international corporations want to build wind farms that could generate enough electricity to power homes in the United States while boosting the state's economy. Sam Eaton reports.

There are new machines in Gdl for parking -I took a pic of them and decided to post it so you would see what they look like. It means that on that BLOCK that machine is the KING. You have to put in $$ (the instructions can be in English if you want! just tell the computer) and once you have the ticket you have to rip off part of it and put it in the FRONT OF YOUR STEERING WHEEL so that if the transito comes by they can see if it has expired or not!…
These are John Glaab's observations of the NAR conference just concluding in San Diego.
John K. Glaab, CIPS
The NAR Conference was an unqualified success. For me it was such a pleasure to see old friends from all over Mexico, Texas and other parts of the world. The Mexican table was on at the International Networking Center at the same time as the Netherlands, France and three other countries. The French were sampling wine and… Continue
My friend and Member, David Moulton got me interested in the flight and plight of the Monarch Butterflies with his blog posts. I started doing some research and was fascinated with what I found. Here are some links to several very interesting and informative videos on the Monarch. I hope that they are as fascinating and interesting to you.
left SF Tuesday, 12:01am with clear skies. Headed for Ensenada, Mexico, our first
scheduled port. This was the first time seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, as the last trip 2
years ago was fog laden. We went through the potato patch (a rough area in the SF bar) an
hour or so later only to be pushed Northwest of our planed route by heavy seas. We finally
made the turn south with
overcast skies. Only 1400
miles to go. The night was
eventful as the… Continue

We went to Puerto Penasco, Rocky Point last week. The crowds are gone. It is perfect golf weather. The Mexican people were really glad to see us back. Nothing is crowded. You can walk you dog for miles on the beach. You can set in the sun and not get hot. No wait at the border going home.
