Busy as a Bee!

Dear Friends,

I'm deluged by work...oh the pain! Nevertheless, the weather is holding steady and I have moved past the starting goal post.

So, if you're visiting here today, here's wishing you soft clouds and blue skies wherever you are.

Take care and God bless!

Belize was spared

It would be remiss of me not to take the time necessary to say a big thank you to everyone who has been thinking of us here in Belize and most importantly praying for us. Yes, I am referring to those prayer warriors out there ~ Sylvia (Heiresschild), Carol (beachgirl), Ian Lidster, Brenda (Clickgirl), Babette, Michelle, the two Michaels, Pia, Renegade Eye and everyone else visiting here. You are the best buddies a gial can have in time of need. I am so blessed to know all of you and thank God Belize was spared.

If I am not visiting your blogs as often as I should, it's because I have now started on a new educational pathway which will eventually lead to a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree. I am officially enrolled in the Fall 2007 programme at Galen University and will be taking up two new courses - MBA 603 (Business Ethics and Human Rights) and MBA 612 (Foundations of Financial Management). Galen University is an independent, free standing institution chartered by the Belize Government. In addition to its own recognized degree programs, Galen University has entered into a partnership agreement with the University of Indianapolis in offering seven of its undergraduate degree programs in Belize. At the recent orientation which I attended, I met many students from the University of Indianapolis who were coming to Belize for the first time as undergraduate students of Galen. They were positive, friendly and quite glad to be in beautiful Belize. Getting to know everyone was fun especially trying to remember everyone's name all at once!LOL! I will be quite busy for the foreseeable future with school, work and being a full time mom. So wish me luck and visit as often as you can here and let me know what y'all are doing.

Hurricane Felix!!

Hurricane Felix continues to strengthen in the Caribbean, passing north of the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao. After a midday eyewall replacement cycle, Felix has become a category 3 hurricane. The A,B,C Islands were spared any strong winds thanks to the compact nature of Felix's wind core, but heavy, localized flooding rain and some coastal flooding from 12-to-16-foot waves will continue over the remainder of today. In the coming days, Felix will bring large waves to the southern coasts of Jamaica and Grand Cayman Island.

If you look carefully at the projected trajectory, Central Belize (Belize City) where I am located lies in the direct pathway of this strengthening hurricane. This is serious folks. We have approximately 65 hours to get prepared as this storm will be upon us by mid-week Wednesday.

Thanks for visiting here and please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I will be back on-line when this one passes through. May God keep and bless us all.
