Wolfe’s Woofer: Tell the Truth
Mario said, “I miss Vernon since Yolanda won’t let him go night fishing with us anymore.” The snappers were running and Mario and I had been fishing down by the bridge since dark. By nine o’clock we had a nice catch that we were cleaning on the concrete seawall. “Speak of the devil,” I said, “and there he is. Hey, Vernon.” “Hey, Mr. Dennis,” Vernon said. “I was hoping to find you here. I want to catch a ride home.”

Doctor Love: Desperate Mom
Dear Doctor Love, I am really worried about my fourteen-year-old daughters’ reaction to this uproar about climate change. She has always been sensitive and her focus on various ideals can border on obsessive, but she is making herself sick over this issue. She is very well read on the movement with that Swedish girl and when I try to calm her down, she argues with me and says I don’t care and am uneducated on the topic. I want to help her, but I don’t know how. If I try to reassure her or tell her she is over-reacting, she fires back with all this stuff about global warming, melting Artic ice and habitat loss. How do I make my little girl feel safe and secure and hopeful for her future?

Tit For Tat !
By: Dr. Abigail Joseph - Belize is considered a culturally diverse country. We are ALL different in our own way. We think differently, we see things from different angles and we interpret the same things differently. Imagine going to an art gallery.

CTGA in Mountain Pine Ridge
Yesterday, members of the Cayo Tour Guide Association visited the Mountain Pine Ridge where we repaired and resurfaced the access trail to some of the most popular destinations in the area: the Rio On Pools and Rio Frio Cave. We all boarded Mr. Jorge De Leon’s Jungle buggy, a Toyota SR5 pickup, modified with seats to carry tourists into the jungle this in its self is an interesting experience and a different way of touring the jungle. It certainly lacks the air conditioning that we are all now accustomed to but this puts the rider closer to nature.

COLD FRONT! Blissful Cooler Breezes Bring Temps into Low 70s on Ambergris Caye
It was a very very hot summer on Ambergris Caye. But this week, the winds shifted…and we are currently enjoying our first real cold front. COLD FRONT! TOGETHER WEATHER! CHRISTMAS TIME! The time of year when the wind blows from the north, humidity dips below 90 percent (HELLO GOOD HAIR!) and locals bundle up as if it is going to snow. I digress…as usual. My main point is…the weather is beautiful and feel gorgeous. I walked outside in a full-blown sweatsuit this morning. Overkill perhaps…but it kept the mosquitos at bay.

Woodcutters of British Honduras
During the 16 and 1700’s explorers and conquistadors from Spain and England were colonizing the “New World” in search of wealth and territories for their monarchs. The lure of Belize was the riches of its interior, proximity to the American colonies, the familiar English language, and most importantly access to the Caribbean Sea. Groups of settlers came from England in search of the logwood, which they found in abundance along the banks of the old Belize River, and later, along the banks of the New River in the north.

Art Talk
Dust off your Art History books and take out those paintbrushes and canvas. Art has a pulse and it’s beating strong in Belize.
