Itís a Sunday, and I thought it would be interesting to know a little more about our backgrounds and opinions, because of the commitment I see displayed in many discussions.

Sometimes I feel people get annoyed by newer members, that donít know the whole story, and of course there are a lot of different opinions about what the future of Ambergris Caye should look like.

It is obvious some business owners defend their interests, but there can also be an other reason for this commitment; I think the boarders here are more intelligent then average, and this sometimes causes the great minds to collide.

To find out I made a poll with the following 4 questions:
When did you first come to Ambergris Caye?
What do you think about Ambergris Caye and its future?
What is your interest in Ambergris Caye?
How would you rate your IQ?

Would that be the same Gringos from whom you solicited money in the past few weeks?

Is that 120 Belize or US?


If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.
