Croc Chronicles about ACES – Adiferous Wines and Liquors Grand Opening

Posted on November 10, 2012


This is another chapter of the series called “About Vince and Cherie Chenot Rose”. Vince and Cherie Chenot Rose lived in Punta Gorda Belize a small town on the southern tip of Belize. The Rose’s owned a small resort and Crocodile Sanctuary named  ACES / American Crocodile Education Sanctuary.

My name is James Fredrick Jensen I am a Canadian that lived in Belize on the Island of San Pedro, this is another chapter of my Novella about the time that past after my Wife Janis Died in Central America.

The new Adiferous Wines and Liquors building was coming along with a few Belize mistakes we had to deal with like all the Window did not fit the holes that were made for them. 

10 days later I left with only a few weeks till the opening of Adiferous Wines and Liquors. I had ordered stock from Belize City and Vince Rose had only to finish building shelves to complete the Liquor Store.

The Grand Opening of Adiferous Wines and Liquors in Punta Gorda Belize.


Our licenses were approved and the week before American Thanks Giving Adiferous Wines and Liquors opened in Punta Gorda Belize under the sometimes loss of control Cherie Chenot Rose. Cherie and Vince I found after spending months working with them on the ACES / American Crocodile Education Sanctuary and Adiferous Wines and Liquors were often troubled. One cannot help but sense that these two had issues they were dealing with.

Vince Rose disappeared for a week prior to the opening of Adiferous Wines and Liquors. This troubled me as did Cherie Roses lack of sometimes understanding basic finance and business needs for the new Liquor Store. While I was funding this operation Cherie seemed to have a hard time with basics about business.

The opening was after all considered a huge success. While Adiferous Wines and Liquors location was kind of off the beaten path of Punta Gorda the opening day we were packed. A few normal complaints about selection and prices. Overall it was a great Grand Opening for the Liquor Store in Punta Gorda.

I remained in Punta Gorda and stayed at the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary with Vince and Cherie to continue to work out the start up issues of Training Cherie and giving the Roses a PC to use for the Liquor store.

About this time I had decided to sell the Liquor Box on the Island of San Pedro. Business interests in Honduras were more attractive for one the cost of Living in Belize continue to increase with out reason.
