Mexico: DST to Continue per Established Schedule

Daylight savings time will begin in most of the United States and Canada on Sunday, March 11, 2007 at 2:00 am, whereas Mexico will not change the traditional starting and ending dates.

The U.S. change is in accordance with the Energy Policy Act of 2005 that set DST dates, as of 2007, to start the second Sunday of March, and to end on the first Sunday of November (November 4, 2007).

Daylight savings time in most Mexican states will begin according to the past schedule. In 2007, DST in Mexico will start on April 1, the first Sunday of April, and end October 28, the last Sunday of that month.
So, I'll be a THREE hour difference from Ohio and a TWO hour difference from Missouri. (Where my Mom and sister live.)


Las Tiendas de Palmilla


Home Sweet Home

I'll take more pictures after we're moved in.



In preparation for our impending move, Craig and I picked up some stuff that we'll need: Garbage bags, brooms, blah, blah, blah. (Really exciting stuff.)

We bought pots and pans and seriously? I loved it. I love that kind of stuff. I cannot believe that after 7 months, I'll soon be living with just my husband again. I'm so excited!


When you come to Cabo

It is my opinion that you must eat at Mi Casa de Mariscos.
The fish tacos are smashing.
(Think: battered fish, in flour tortillas. With lime on them, of course.)
Awesome. Fresh. Good for ya.


Struck me today...

I miss Jeopardy. I haven't seen it since I moved here.
This is one of my all time favorite shows. I love it.
Alex Trebec? Kinda weird. Kinda full of himself.
However, nothing beats that show.
The set hasn't changed in like 25 years, nor has the music, and you cannot TELL me that you don't want to press that answer buzzer and write on that screen during final jeopardy at least ONE time before your time on earth is up.



Yay for LENT in Mexico!

>> Wednesday, March 07, 2007

Because of Lent the "McTrio Marina" (Fish Sandwich value meal) is here in Cabo! (It's usually not on the menu, I hear.)

C. and I feasted on them tonight. They were HOT and PERFECT and tasted like home.
Get this, they even offer a "Doble Marina." Yes friends, a DOUBLE fish sandwich. How gross would that be? Eek.


Only in Mexico

This is an email that my sister got from someone with whom she works closely for the closing of properties at the company where we work.

Cracked me up. Quite an story.

Why do vacationers in Cabo always feel that it's OK to sport the beachy cowboy look?
I don't get it.


Movies in Cabo

>> Monday, March 05, 2007

Take a look at our beloved theatre.


It's great. A little late getting the 'ole new movies, but still. It's cheap.
And near Haagan Daas.


Housing Update

>> Sunday, March 04, 2007

Ok, here's the deal.
This will be the last week that we're living with my sister.

Finally, after years - she will have none of her siblings living with her.

C. and I will be moving into my brother B.'s place after he moves out of it.
We'll be all of 2 seconds away from him and his fiancee, B.
We'll be all of 5 minutes away from my sister.

It's all good.


I have to tell you, after SEVEN MONTHS I am so excited to live in my "own" space. I think I'm going to feel like an adult again.


The house? It's not done. In fact, the contract expired on it and my sister didn't renew it. We're thinking it's a bad investment since 20-something of the 200 homes in the community are SINKING. Seriously.
