This post dates back to a few different dates as I have been quietly blogging as everything was unfolding so you wouldn’t miss out on the fun – I used this style for Lobsterfest 2009 as well.
May 8th – Remember a short while back I told you I had a big surprise cooking? Mission accomplished and I can officially announce it [even though they have already gone public on facebook and their One Caribbean Weather wordpress site] – Joey Stevens and Bob the Parrot from are coming to San Pedro for Lobsterfest.
May 14th – Lots has happened yesterday Joey’s Manager said he has us penciled in but needs to know sooner than later as there is another country who has stepped up and is willing to take our time slot – hoping we can get enough people on board so we can give One Caribbean Weather an answer by asap. I am so on the edge of my seat but I know that we can make this happen.

I have been watching Oprah this aft on CBS and seen all kinds of great footage during the commercials – Grenada – Trinidad – San Juan – Curaco. Nice to think about how Ambergris Caye Belize will showing soon be among them.
Oprah had a very interesting story about a family in the states who adopted a 7 year old girl from Haiti. They talked about how in the beginning because she was used to getting only one meal a day – Clare was eating like every meal was her last. It took a while for her to see that there was always going to be another meal. It was also interesting to hear what her coping skills in school were like as back in Haiti pushing and shoving were a way to get attention. I found it all very interesting having volunteered at HC school here on the island and seen some of the struggles kids face and how they cope. Saw on OCW yesterday that Joey Stevens presented a check for Haiti to the American Red Cross with yesterday on his Caribbean Weather Show for the amount of $53,500.00.
Sending a big Shout out to Rebecca Arceo at Seaduced for helping in a big way to make this happen. Time for a computer break – emails are multiplying faster than rabbits today.
