Coconut phone shut out

Speedy Gonzalez clocked in yesterday as the first entrant to Beloved Belize Writing contest. 551 words – a nice read – kept my attention the whole way through and something everyone can relate to.The bar is set ha ha.

This morning when I got up and was doing my usual on lap top coconut phone aka msn messenger informed me that I had to download the new version or go without. I hate when they force it upon you – don’t they realize that downloading is not a simple 5 min task for some people or that some of us do not care if we have the latest and greatest version as long as what we already have makes sense and works fine? 4 hours later and I am finally resolved this issue – patience is a must if you want to live here or somewhere like it.

Reminder for all of you on the island Roadkill bar is hosting a fundraiser tonight for New Horizons School and a 14 year old boy who needs a helping hand due to the loss of his parents. With 500 students – New Horizons is in need of a photocopy machine and the boy needs a bike and an armchair. If you would like to make a donation from afar contact Ana – anabze[at]yahoo[dot]com or call her at 602-5925

Who knew? Today is National Cinnamon Raisin Bread Day – so break out the CR bread – toaster and butter knife and celebrate.

Just got word from Lemon Crush Lara and the good news is her swimsuits are selling like hotcakes – she was just picked up by Riviera – very cool website. Also from Miss Francis and just posted new entry on the school blog.

San Pedro never ceases to amaze me. I am always seeing fascinating new things – today it was the tide going in and out. You may be wondering what is so interesting about that? The view in my pictures below will show you – we all got to see this process on the road right outside our front doors. When I first noticed all the water on the road I thought no way I could have missed that much rain. These pics are taken over the span of 3 or 4 hours – was not totally keeping track.
