Yup... Which is why I would have been boxed in last night if the car behind me hadn't left. I was parked normally where the white SUV is now.

I may have exggaterated a bit. I don't do too badly at parallel parking two to three tries for me.

We all know how  much GreenFrog would love to back into Piob

The fact that people (humble) brag about their parking skillz on an anonymous forum proves that there is virtually nothing too pedestrian to be (humble) bragged.

I love diving in Cozumel and Cozumel generally is one of my more fave places in Mexico. Kind of off the path, very chill and if you avoid the cruise ships, it's really a quiet and pleasant place to vacay.

I've had my advanced open water for a while and have done some pretty challenging dives there … one of which was a strong current drift dive over the Santa Rosa Wall. Would not recommend this for inexperienced divers though. A couple years back we were there on a family vacation and the day before we did the wall my mother asks me "Why is that helicopter flying back and forth like that?"

I didn't tell her until the next day that means a diver was lost. Unfortunately a young Japanese diver got swept away by the current… they never found her.

Sometimes it's part of the risk. Floating upside-down at almost 35 meters just cruising over the kaleidoscopic array of fish and coral … parts of it are better than the GBR. I've got some underwater pix somewhere if I can dig them up will post.

The Bommies of Fiji will give you a whole new perspective on current diving

I've done the Coral Coast a couple of times. Spent months in Fiji overall… love it.

In that case I would say if you found yourself in Cabo with some spare time maybe go for a dive but to travel down there just for that meh. Better out on the Channel Islands. Your in Socal right.If you don't have access to a boat Truth Aquatics out of Santa Barbara runs a class act but then maybe you know this stuff

Report card came for the master's degree. Year 1 amounted to a High Pass, when rounded up. Allegedly equivalent to a First, but Cambridge doesn't do that sort of thing for post-grad degrees. Also, given that 60% of the final grade is for the dissertation, all this really amounts to is the portion of the Quidditch match before some genius finds the golden snitch.

Yeah, I didn't want to mention where. But it isn't the place you named.

The only downside though is that it removes any excuse for me to ever skip the gym smile.gif
