About Me: Born, getting older, done stuff - some I´ll talk about, some I won´t.
Favorite Dive Gear
Anything that works reliably.
Favorite Dive Locations
Living. Archaeology, writing. Look out for my Christmas book, ´Boracic Lint´ on Lulu.
Anything to do with water, except drinking the stuff.
Depends on my mood, where I am and who I´m with.
Favorite TV Shows
Time Team. But when I was a kid it had to be ´Sea Hunt´, Lloyd Bridges. Hands up if you remember it.
Love stories, Arthouse, French films -Jean de Florette as an example. Nothing by Rolf de Heere. Can´t stand pretentious wank, or cheap half-arse productions typical of so much that has come out of this country for years.
Gulliver´s Travels Robinson Crusoe. If it´s well written, engaging and not about me, me, me, then I´ll give it a go.
1 Life has a way of making things happen.
2 It may be OK to trample a man if you´re running for your life, but it would be the mark of a truly civilised human being if he could say sorry while he was about it. Sean (two navels) O´Meara, gored during the 1978 Pamplona Bull Run, of his brother Fingal (the bas*ard), who wasn´t.
sorry, an addendum..Boracic Lint! But yes, I´m very interested. Really. I did a google search as I freely admit the term was new to me, but I am very interested in your results. Aside from my medical background (I´m a recently retired general and vascular surgeon), I have a very great interest in the history of medicine, as well as history in general. So please keep me posted...perhaps you could recommend a reading list for me? I´m always on the lookout for some interesting non-fiction books. Thanks. Mary
Hi, Graham. Guess I´m a bit slow on the uptake, but you know how insular Americans can be...yes, after some thought, I realized WA meant Western Australia, not Washington State. Still my atlas doesn´t show Cossack...my loss, I´m sure. No, we don´t have salties here, but we do have the giant pacific octopus! Hope you get home soon to do some diving. ´´Boracic Lint´´?
Okay, I live and dive in Washington State....but where do you find Cossack? T´is not in my Atlas. Perhaps you meant another place? BTW, I raise my hand...yes I remember ´´Sea Hunt´´, but that was in my childhood and clearly not applicable now. Nevertheless, we have some really great diving here in the Pacific Northwest, albeit cold. Cheers, Mary.
OK, why won´t my ´favourite books´ page use upper case letters?
Cossack, WA. It now has salties among its marine life.
