  • To the loyal fans of Sandie’s Sweets, I am back in business. You can order my chocolate fudge sundae cake, banana bread, carrot cake or sour cream coffee cake thru luvbaja@gmail.com or phone/text 530 802-3579 US.
  • Our Fidei is with BanBajio, but our annual fee has not been charged to our credit card. I’ve tried contacting the office in San Jose, but have not received a response. Does anyone have the email address or phone number of someone I can contact at the bank? Would like to avoid a drive down there. Thanks! Leo Bragagnolo leo_jb@yahoo.com

Baja Birding Club - Question of the day: Why do California Quail have those little ‘deelybopper’ or topknot plumes on their heads?  Answer: They are actually composed of six feathers and the California Quail (the state bird of California) is the only quail species to have them. Both sexes sport them, but the male’s plume is larger. Apparently, they help to attract mates. The healthier the plume appears, the more likely the owner has excellent genes to pass onto the next generation. Professor David M.

MasViento Wind Forecast - (Today: Partly sunny. North wind 16-18 mph) No satellite-derived winds were available this morning, but most of the latest numerical model runs show north background flow will increase slightly today as surface high pressure builds far to our north. A negative factor will be increasing high clouds, as infrared satellite loops this morning show a huge area of cloud cover to our west. There should be some thin areas in the cloud shield this afternoon, so I do expect at least a partial thermal boost. The surface high over the interior west of the U.S. is forecast to build southward on Thursday and tighten the pressure gradient over BCS. High clouds may be a bit thinner tomorrow as well, so it could be one of the windier days of the next week. Friday should bring full sun and solid north background flow, so it looks like our streak will continue. Wes - daily forecasts: MasViento.
Farmers Market - The market is on! Every Thursday, located on the main road, Corredor Isla Cerralvo, just a few blocks north of Club Cerralvo.
Community Action
