Wolfe’s Woofer: Seasick
“I sure am thirsty,” Vernon said. “Let’s get a beer.”
“Good idea,” I told him.
By chance, Vernon and I were catching the same water taxi from Belize City. We had nearly an hour before the boat departed so we popped into a little bar around the corner from the taxi terminal.
As we left the bar I said, “Vernon, you’ve had five beers in the last half hour. Will they make you seasick?”
“I needed them, Mr. Dennis. I’m scared of boats but don’t get seasick unless I think about it. Now, you made me think of it so I’ll probably get sick.”
Doctor Love: At Odds Couple
Dear Doctor Love,
For forty years my husband and I planned for retirement and by the time he left his long-time employment a few months ago, we had reached our goals. We raised our kids, paid off the mortgage and invested well and saved money. I need to work another three years, then I can also retire with full benefits. Life has been very good to us.
A problem came up when he decided he wanted to go to San Pedro for the summer to “relax and unwind.” I know he has been depressed and feeling adrift but an extended vacation without me seems unfair. First, the cost of maintaining a second home away from home was not part of our long-term plan and was not managed into our budget.

Easter in Belize is a very is a very popular celebration time and there is no shortage of fun things to do. My reason to Celebrate is a bit more earthy, so far over the holidays, my water has only gone out 3 times for short periods and power once.
Big Dawg Beachside Sports Bar – New Folks & New Business on Ambergris Caye
Earlier this month, I ran into a couple from Kinard, Florida just outside of Panama City. Both were VERY excited to tell me about their new business venture on the island.
Meet Dwayne and Peggy, new business owners in San Pedro.
And their new business – Big Dawg Beachside Sports Bar & Grill.
“We first visited San Pedro years ago,” Dwayne told me, “and we immediately felt like ‘we got it’”.
It was 2015 – and on that 5-day trip they fell in love with San Pedro’s quaint, small town feel.
“In our first few days, we really got a feel for the place and the people here. Everyone was sooo helpful, asking us “Hey big man, what you need?” when we’d walk around town. By the end of the trip, it’s like we were treated more like locals than tourists.”
Caribbean States Share Common Values & Interests with Other ACP Countries
As the African, Caribbean, and Pacific Group of States (ACP) girds up its loins for talks on future relations with the European Union (EU) after the Cotonou Agreement expires in February 2020, the Caribbean Forum of the ACP States (CARIFORUM) has resolved that a new pact must take into account "the inherent and exogenous vulnerabilities" of the Caribbean region as critical elements in the negotiations.
A Statement of the CARIFORUM Council of Ministers, which had a special meeting in St. Kitts-Nevis on March 26-27, said that they recognized "the fundamental importance and relevance of recent global agreements including Agenda 2030, the Paris Declaration on Climate Change and International Agreements on development financing."
