Good morning everyone and Happy 4th of July. I haven’t written in a couple of days, so I thought I’d check in. I’m pretty sure everyone has a barbeque or picnic planned for today and there’s going to be plenty of fireworks going off. If you have pets, please keep them inside and if you can’t, try and get them some doggie downers. I remember one year, I left four dogs in the house while I went out to take photos. When I came home, my printer, bread maker (never used) and a lamp were all broken. Evidently, the one dog outside wanted in and the dogs were jumping up on the desk and tables. I’m assuming to help get the other dog in the house. Who knows, but what a mess and their ears are much more sensitive than ours, so give them refuge! The photo below I took at a Score Baja 250 in 2003.
Good afternoon everyone. I did start Kat’s Korner earlier, but I’m having problems with my Mac, again. If I get up and leave, it goes into sleep and won’t come out, so I have to force it to shut down and when I did, I lost everything I’d already written. Oh well; looks like a trip to those Geniuses at Apple. Crazy weather we’re having. I had a great birthday yesterday and thank you everyone who left a birthday wish in my email and, of course, on Facelessbook. From Linda Garcia, Sub Delegada de Turismo en San Felipe:
From South Jersey to San Felipe: My Mexican Food Odyssey
By Margaret Reish Downing
Good morning everyone. We have a slight wind and it’s a bit muggy, but it looks like we’re going to have a great day. I’m going to watch the rigs come in from Ensenada in the RECORD 250 race around noon, so this may be short and sweet. First of all, I want to thank Kyle Crawford for explaining how VWL (Volunteers Without Limits) works although the discussion became a bit heated, I found out what I wanted to know. They are a legitimate NGO, which is a Mexican non-profit and Patti is the President. She applies for grants from the government, which is where the $2,000 came from. All monies received from the government must be accounted for and facturas given. Kyle is a facilitator, helping Patti interact with non-Spanish speaking peeps. As I said in my column yesterday, I am not attacking any group and I won’t apologize for asking questions. I do appreciate the responses and or comments, negative or positive.
