'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the casa!!!!!!!



'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.



Outside in the yard there arose… Continue

Baja Vacation 2009 (AKA) "PINK MIST"

Hi everyone,

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

CELEBRATION MEXICAN STYLE

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

If you are parking in Guadalajara - OJO - as they say!!

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!…

San Fransico To Loreto Oct. 25th 2005 Voyage

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

Puerto Penasco

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.

Show a litle gratitude

Right on - "Founder Dude" - if you want me to open up a can of "whoop ass" on anyone, just let me know. I know how much time and work George puts into this site and ANYONE with the nerve to complain should be horse whipped or in the alternative, banned from the site or sent to the corner for recess.
