Tropical storm Benjamin moves on South of Cancun posted by on August 8, 2017

The storm hit the Yucatan south of Cancun. We have experienced intermittent rain and high winds on occasion. No harm done as we needed the rain badly. We are experiencing a record heat wave for the second week. The cooler temps from the storm activity brought a welcomed relief.

A hurricane watch has been issued by the government of Mexico for a portion of the Yucatan Peninsula fom Chetumal to Punta Allen. This does not include Cancún or Cozumel. This means hurricane conditions are possible in these areas.

Tropical storm warnings extend over most of the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula, including Cancún and Cozumel, and as far south as Belize City. A tropical storm warning means that winds in excess of 40 mph are expected and that preparations for the storm should be rushed to completion.

Betty Melendez 88th Birthday posted by on May 29, 2017

We were invited to a birthday party given by Barry Ivan White at his home for his friend and fellow entertainer Betty Melendez last week. It was Betty’s 88th birthday. She is a Mexican movie star and long time songstress that still entertains both in Cancun and Las Vegas. She spends about 6 months in each of these cities. The following is a film clip from a movie she starred in 1962 at age 33.

The following are some of the pictures from the party.

Betty entertained us with humorous stories of her life, and of course several  songs.

This special day was filled with a dish to pass from each of the guests, cake, ice cream, singing by Barry, Betty, Cynthia Morningstar Davis, and others. Guests present were from 6 different countries. The conversation was vigorous and the commaradere wonderful. The guest of honor enjoyed her special day immensely. Cancun is a very special place where this kind of gathering is common among friends that live here. Come and enjoy the fun.
