Wolfe’s Woofer: Fishing Stories
“Three large coffees, please.” I told the lady at Celi’s Deli. By the time I walked over to the deck of the Holiday Hotel Mario was already walking up from the beach. “Good morning, Mr. Dennis. I need that coffee this morning. The snappers is running so I went fishing last night and didn’t get in until three a.m.” Mario is my friend and he’s my yardman, when he feels like working. This morning he and Vernon were scheduled to plant two large palm trees for me. When Vernon arrived, he looked like he hadn’t had much sleep either.

Doctor Love: Prom Hopeful
Dear Doctor Love, I have asked this girl out twice and both times she turned me down. She says she likes older guys because they are more mature and the guys at school are immature and stupid. She crushes on older guys who don’t even notice her and ignores guys who like her just because they are her age. How can I get her to notice that I am not stupid or immature? /s/Prom Hopeful

Earth Day 2018 Marks Countdown To Phase Out Of Single-Use Plastics
Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22nd. Each year Earth Day is celebrated under a theme, and this year’s theme is simple: End Plastic Pollution. There’s no question that plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land, injuring marine life, and affecting our health! This couldn’t come at a better time for Belize with the government’s recent announcement to phase out of single use plastic shopping bags, Styrofoam and plastic food utensils by Earth Day 2019! Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 192 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network ran by president Kathleen Rogers.

You can fool a Moppit some of the time but you can’t fool a Moppit all of the time
Yes, we are still here. In Belize, until Thursday. Getting to San Miguel de Allende with a little dog and six formidable suitcases in tow (still an estimate) will be quite a coup from my perspective. I turn out to be very good at perspective, while Rose is, in fact, even better at actually scheduling things like planes (2) transport vans (2), and hotels (1). Meanwhile, I have been studying YouTube videos on how to lovingly coax your little dog into an even littler carrier. I just finished a 9-minute video in which the rather attractive woman spent seven of those minutes telling us, me, how lovely and obedient her own little Muffie is.

  • Can You Belize It?, 3.5min. This trip opened my eyes to a whole new way of living. Living for 4 days on an island in the middle of the ocean was peaceful. But getting a taste of the fast pace lifestyle of a jaguar, in the jungle, was liberating as well. I absolutely fell in love with the clear blue ocean and vibrant coral reefs, so I hope you like what you see here.
