Fly-fishers are hooked by this Belizean atoll

For some, the notion of an isolated, utterly private Caribbean atoll may conjure up fantasies of tropical indolence – chaise lounges on a white-sand beach, umbrella drinks and perhaps a paperback.

Dear Annie 4/10

Dear Annie: A few weeks ago, my husband and I were supposed to attend a funeral of a very dear friend, two hours away from our home. The service was at 2 p.m. The morning of the funeral, I woke up with a migraine and quickly took some meds. I fixed my husband’s breakfast, and he told me he was waiting to hear from another friend about having lunch together prior to the services. I asked why he hadn’t told me about the plans, and he said he shouldn’t have to. (We’ve been married 50 years.) I was hoping for a little more time to allow the migraine to diminish and told him that. We would have to leave by 10 o’clock, and I had not even showered.

Miss Manners 4/9

Dear Miss Manners: On a frequent basis, I’m told I look like a former television personality who got caught up on the wrong side of the #MeToo movement. This person is considered attractive by many, so I should be flattered.

Dear Annie 4/8

Dear Annie: My ex and I got married when I was 19. We stayed together for 10 years, during which I was dealing with untreated depression. That did not make life easy for either of us. Eventually, he left, leaving me to care for the kids. He gave us some financial support but was not present in their lives.

Ask the Doctors 4/8

Dear Doctor: My daughter had her gall bladder removed, and two months later she’s still suffering from watery diarrhea. She even had to be hospitalized to restore her fluids. What does your gall bladder do? Are there lifestyle or dietary adjustments to help?
