( Great going girls!)  We started slow, still 3 male dmt’s on their last few weeks to finishing when the first girl arrived. Continue reading

The Woodlouse, a.k.a Roly poly

I remember when I was a little kid we used to go camping all the time.  I am not a iPhone generation so we played outside and collected bugs or chased butterflies.  One of my favorite was the Roly-Poly, or better know as the woodlouse.  You could fool people and pretend you had raisins, cuz once you touch them they roll up in little balls and look just like a yummy licorice or raisin. (no I did not eat them) :) Continue reading

I’ll never forget my first breaths underwater.

Coco Dive, or Rescue Shore?

in one of my previous blogs I mentioned something about the TV series ” Miami Ink” (it has been a while back)  I was then mentioning that so much “soap news” was happening at a dive center that we could set up a Coco Dive.  I did keep track for a week on a dive shop diary, but I think we are more advanced and in need of a gossip column! :) Continue reading
