Belize Dirt & Road Dust... and Dogs!

If you keep up with this blog (and you can do that easily here)... then you know we have dogs. Five, actually... Iris, Sir Charles, Little Bit, Bowdoin and Rambo (don't ask... we didn't name him). Well, that also means we deal with sand and dirt from doggie tracks all the time. In addition to the road dust that just floats in with every truck or bus going by. We constantly deal with keeping computer keyboards and screens cleaned up and it has become a real quandry... especially what to do about the inside of laptops and, in particular the back side of the display screen. I knew that there had to be a way, so a quick google search turned up the perfect solution. Take a look at the best screen cleaner we could find... here.

Pizza on the Grill in Belize

Our friends, Mary Ann and Eldon Mead from Arkansas, recently drove a motor home here and are working on the beginnings of their beach front home just north of Singing Sands. Today, Eldon treated us to his awesome home made pizza done on our outdoor grill. Here's a peek... with more photos of the whole process here.

Sometimes I Forget...

... what a beautiful expanse of beach and ocean we are fortunate to have and share with our family and guests.

Belize and the Placencia Peninsula is a special place.

Living & Finding Things In Belize... Resources

I presume at least a few of the readers of this blog either live here in Belize or visit enough that they know finding "things" and services that are needed for construction, or just household projects can be a struggle. Not long ago, I vowed to try to make a list of the resources I had discovered from exploration, friends and just by accident. That led to the spreadsheet that you see here (just a sample of it) and that is now available for everyone to check out and use here. I hope that folks who have additions (or corrections) to this list will contribute!
