It has just occured to me that none of you know anything about me so I thought I'd give you all some vitals:

My name is Jim Tyner
I'm 36 years old and married 8+ years to my wife Pam (she won't like this but - she's 33)
We have two "kids" named Sparky and Pebbles (Dalmatians)[Linked Image]
We both have lived the vast majority of our lives in Florida
Met in college at the Univ of Fl. (Go Gators!)[Linked Image]
Currently live in Columbus, Ohio (Blech!!)[Linked Image]
Before that, in Las Vegas.[Linked Image]
Why the hell are we in Ohio? Pam's job at The Limited. I'm working for Borden Foods.
This is the first time I have lived in a state that has State and City income taxes and it is KILLING ME!![Linked Image]

I was certified and have been diving since 1980 (Pam doesn't dive though.)
Love the sea! Never been so landlocked and it sucks![Linked Image]

We own 10% of a start up company in Iowa that makes industrial dumpsters out of post consumer recycled plastic, roof tiles out of recycled tires, and pallets out of recycled plastic. When this baby takes off we are expatriating - and Look Out AC is tops on the list of places!![Linked Image]

I'd be interested in learning about you guys too if you care to tell us.

You will be happy to know that my restaurant is in St.Augustine,Fl and one of my better customers is Steve Spurrier. My wife and I are friends with him and his wife. I sure hope you watched that Gator-Tenn. game on Saturday. I am 49 years old and my wife is 47 years young. We have been married over 20 years..WOW! We have two boys and a girl plus two wire-haired pointing griffons(bet no one ever heard of those dogs)whose names are Lizzy Borden and Mini Me. Mini Me because she is two years younger and looks exactly like Lizzy because they have the same parents.I owned a restaurant in New York for 17 years and one down here for 10 years. So you can see why I am ready to get out of this rat race and get my ass to Belize.Now being in the restaurant business my entire life I do disagree with a few of your choices on where to eat but I ain't gonna tell you where I don't like to eat because it does a terrible disservice to the owner. I will make one slight suggestion though, Ramon's is a lot better than the responces you guys give.So there take that! I am going once again to AC in November with my wife and when I return to the states I hope to be a proud owner of a piece of paradise. Oh yea, my name is Jerry not Zeke. A long story that ain't worth boring you with.

Some times there, some times h...
Love to participate..but those ex-wives, federal judges, and that darn parole officer just might monitor travel boards. Jerry, I like your take on things, especially since we got you tuned to the JJW part.

We have MANY friends in the restaurant business throughout Indiana and Illinois (Chicago), and have great admiration for the effort needed to be sucessful. Are you planning to live in AC on a more or less permanent basis, or as a part-timer?

At your recommendation (see what you have done?) we will give Ramon's restaurant a whirl again in a few weeks. It has been several years since the last time, but lately I've heard some things that might make me want to try it again. However, since the bar and restaurant are seperate concessions, I can say this with some authority...BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL OF THE "MILKY" DRINKS. Not because of risk of intoxication, that will be the least of your worries. This has happened to our adult children and our traveling companions 100% of the time over the past 4 years. Hmmmm, on second thought maybe it's us.

Great idea Jim, here goes: My name is Rhonda Scheele and I'm 36 years old, my husband's name is Don and is 49. We have been married 3 years (second time around for both of us). I have two daughters, Tasheena is 16 (a sophmore in H.S.) and Amber is 14 ( a freshman in H.S.). They are both on the Cheerleading squad and having great fun. And if any of you need to know anything....and I mean anything, just ask one of them, they know everything....LOL I have two stepsons, Trenton is 24 and Bryant is 21. I own two cats named Sauvie and Malcolm (both Siamese) and extremely spoiled! I work for Georgia Pacific as an Administrative Asst. (aka: their girl friday) for Procurement (wood & fiber, we buy timber) and my husband is a Lumber Broker. We live in Oregon, so what other profession would we be in. Hopefully that won't get to many peoples dander up. We are very environmentally cautious. So if any of you are environmentalist please don't chew my head off. So knowing that we live in Oregon where the rain starts about October and doesn't really let up till around June. You can probably imagine why it is that we love to get away to sunny and warm places come spring. Hence Belize in March!!!

Good idea Jim! My name is Jenn Lizzi and I live in Central New Jersey. I am 24 years old and have been dating my boyfriend Jamie, that is coming to Belize with me, for almost 4 years. I have no children but a dog named Duncan that is enough work for me. I am a dental hygienist for a pedatric and a general dentist which happen to be husband and wife. November will be my first trip to Ac and I can not wait. I hope it is as great as it sounds.
