Fantastic Mr Fox

We have watched this movie at least twice. It is really good, I recommend you watch it too. It gets better with repeated watchings!

The Tiki Bar

We were invited to, and went to the grand opening of theTiki Bar, a new beach hangout for cruise shippers in the day and locals at night, it is really nice, and well thought out. They built the seawall for the place years ago, and have waited to see it he seawall would last before they started construction. It was fun!

Oh, this is good

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath.. This made him.... A super-calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis

Last Dive of an Extended Inner Space

Although Inner Space ran from Saturday to Saturday, I still have been diving every day. However tomorrow my dive buddy leaves, and I'll be bring my rebreather home to dry out and have a rest.
I kind of screwed up, although it wasn't really my fault.
Originally, I thought Inner Space was the 22nd to the 29th, then there was supposed to be a Freediving competition that they needed safety divers for.
So, I put in for holiday from the 22nd to June 14th.
Well, later, Inner Space got re scheduled, to the 15th. I didn't know it, I just thought I asked for the wrong days off. And the Freediving thing was happening the same time as Inner Space.
So, now I have another week off, and nothing really planned to do.
I can check and see if I can go back to work early, or just go to the beach every day and play tourist.

Brain Dead Sunday

Well, it's Sunday morning, I'm just sitting here, brain dead. I have a cup of coffee in front of me but haven't taken a sip yet.
I feel so stupid, yesterday I got a Facebook virus, and sent it to everyone I know. I saw that one friend sent a link to another friend, and I clicked it because I wanted to see the video. Distracting Beach Babes. Considering the caption, and who was sending it to who, I DID think it would be funny.
It wasn't

Last Day of Inner Space 2010

Today is the last diving day of Inner Space 2010. It went by fast.
Tonight is the farewell dinner.
It has really been raining a lot the past two days, we need the rain, but I like diving when it's sunny!
Here's a couple of pics:

A truck full of rebreathers, the rebreathers are worth far more than the truck!A truck full of bailout tanks, people carry them in case something goes wrong with the rebreather.

It's Thursday? Where have the days gone?
Actually I didn't dive yesterday, I took a day off because I was sick. I was cold in the water Monday and Tuesday. I felt really bad Tuesday afternoon and evening. So I didn't dive yesterday, got some rest, plenty of fluids and some homemade chicken soup from the Wife! (It was fantastic) Now I'm diving again today, with a thicker wetsuit.
I wonder if I got sick because I was cold, or if I was cold because I was getting sick?

It's Tuesday? where have the days gone? I have been diving every day since my last post.
There's not much to post about. The dives have all been too deep for my camera.
Yesterday was a holiday here, my Wife had the day off and went for a dive. She had a good time.
That's it, the week is flying by way too fast.

Night Post

It's Thursday night, I usually post in the morning. Heck, I remember when I'd post more than once a day.
I got my rebreather all ready for tomorrow. Tomorrow should be the start of several days in a row of diving.

I went to the beach today. I took a picture of a dragonfly sitting on a stick. He had weird things on his back.

Monday weekend report

I was sick this weekend, Friday I had a mild stomach problem, and the medicine I took for it made me super sick. I got out of bed Sunday about noon, feeling almost fine, went to the beach in the afternoon and now I'm back on track.
I have a problem with my underwater camera, where when I get in the water, the lens on he housing fogs up on the inside. I've cleaned it and it fogged again yesterday. I guess I'll have to clean it again.
Have a good week!

I haven't been posting much lately. I have been leaving my computer at work and once I get there, I don't have time for a post. Here's a couple of dawg pics. I hate it when people post cutsie pics of their dogs, but these are OK, because one is a horrifying monster and the other is the root of all evil. I'll let you figure out which is which!I sent my camera out for repair, it would always give me a low battery warning. I got it back and the low battery problem is fixed, but now the colors don't seem as bright. Everything looks misty or something.
Last night we went and saw the movie, Iron Man 2. It was really good. I can't say if it was better or worse than the first one, about the same level of goodness I rekkon.
Here, now, it's cloudy, I hope we get a decent rain.

Witty Topic

I think every Monday I name my post "It's Monday", and I put how I had a great weekend. Or a crappy rainy one.
This was a good one, our first wedding anniversary. I ate way too much yesterday. We had three big meals and also we had year old wedding cake that was surprisingly good!
This morning I got up and went for a run, a short one, about four tenths of a mile. It was good to get my heart pumping and the sweat flowing. Lately I've been wondering when was the last time my heart ran at full speed? I can't remember the last time. Before this morning. I think I can fit this into my schedule.
Did you ever notice that pets is spelled almost the same way as pests? Why is that? I just noticed because I made a typo! But dog spelled backwards is God. Seems a contradiction....
Around here, we keep our pets up on a pedestal!
