Splat Here

Totally overcast a very strange day-who knows what is going to happen later-I am going back to sleep-the ruffians are going down to the new house which Julie say will be ready later on today-I will provide pictures tomorrow.

Larry Addington R.I.P.-former owner of Caye Chapel

Larry died very suddenly last week and was buried a few days ago. A self made gazillionaire who may in the end have lost everything was a wonderful chap who used to drink in Fido’s on a friday night with a small group from Caye chapel-albeit a good few years ago. Only those who knew him knew that he had tons of the old lucre.

So cheers to you

Atlantic Bank loses its Corresponding Bank in the U.S.A.

A rumor which started circulating a few weeks ago was confirmed yesterday,and that was the Atlantic Bank will no longer be able to deal in US dollar transfers. As most people know this happened a few months ago with the Belize Bank, and it is extremely annoying for the people who live here-it really does not affect the people who do not. It will certainly hurt all the people who have been guilty of money laundering or those whom have been avoiding tax in the USA.

A spokesman for Pelican Properties said that as the majority of their sales are done in in US dollars but the monies with the exception of taxes and property taxes are kept and transferred in the USA without ever coming to Belize.

Further rumors are that First Caribbean Bank,formerly Barclays,are also under investigation.

Cyclists on the Pavement/Sidewalk

Yesterday a lady was walking her dog which was on a leash and a cyclist brushed past her on his bike-telling her to get out of the way. Come on people bikes should ONLY be ridden on the road-tghis includes the beach,as this is for people who want to sunbathe,and generally enjoy the beauty of the caribbean sea.

Sargasso Grass on the Beaches

While investigating a hot lead on a story, the Ambergris Daily noticed that very few places have been keeping up with the awful sargasso seagrass that is washing in.

It appears that Caribbean Villas Hotel has 6 people dedicated to clearing their beach each day, and the best part is that there none of the all pervading sulfur/ammonia smell at their Restaurant on the beach, unlike most other beach restaurants on the island.

So impressed were we that we stopped to take a photo in the early afternoon at their beach.

Motorcyclists without Crash Helmets

Has anyone not noticed that almost all passengers-normally wives girlfriends, and kids do not wear helmets whilst on the back of motorcycles (indeed there can be up to 4 people on one motorcycle). This is a disaster waiting to happen as there is bound to be a crash and one of the kids wives will suffer brain damage and the community will have to pay for their folly through food drives,radio fund raisers etc-some people will donate money they can ill afford.
The town council and the police have to step up to the plate and enforce the laws before it is to late

Jambo’s,Splat’s and Jager’s Weather Report for Ambergris Caye July 28

It is a glorious day – again. There are so fluyffy whimsical clouds in the sky. The dogs are already away for the day. I believe they woofed about going to Caye Caulker on the boat-they think I will be jealous but they do not realise that I,like all cats,hate water.

Jambo’s,Splat’s and Jager’s Weather Report on Ambergris Caye

It is a fabulous day and I (jambo) was given roast chicken as a treat,and let me tell you tat it was absolutely delicious. I even shared with Jager but got no thanks for that. The best news was that Splat only got her regular breakfast which comes out of a can which contains something called “meat”.
We are going on a boat to go fishing-the boss always catches the biggest fish and then settles down on the lounge cushions and goes to sleep.
