My Status: Does anyone have Photoshop CS5 and still have their copy of CS4 they would be willing to part with for a reasonable price?
Skipster aka ´Da´ Tater´ - live in The Woodlands, TX USA About Me: Hi... my name is Skip. I put my nickname as "da´ ´Tater" because so many people think I look (and talk) like Ron White. I had always wanted to get my SCUBA certs - just never had the time or the $ (or had the $ at the same time as I had the time???).Anyway, finally got my OW first week of July 2009. Finished my Nitrox and got my Advanced Diver. I am already working on NAUI Master Diver. I am a NAUI accredited First Aid/CPR/AED/O2 Instructor. So, if you need your certification and are in the Houston area, let me know!I also have my "Deep Diver" and "Underwater Digital Photogrpahy" specialties and recently completed my Rescue Diver cert.True, I have only been diving since July 2009. But, don´t let that fool ya´, because, as of March 2011, I already have 106 dives! (Can you say, "Hooked!" - no pun intended).Have been to Cozumel, the Bahamas (on a liveaboard), Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, Tortola, Turks, St. Thomas, Moorea, Rangiroa, Raiatea and Bora Bora. I did my first shark dive summer 2010 and absolutely can´t wait to do that again. My beautiful wife, Cindy, and I travel a couple of times per year and would love to meet up and dive - mainly because I can’t talk her into taking the class.Finally, I am also ordained as a non-denominational Pastor and, as such, can officate weddings (or Renewal of Vows!). Looking for dive buddies in southeast Texas and beyond.

|Hi Skip...sounds like you are addicted! Diving has become my passion in life and always looking forward to my next dive trip. My husband doesn´t dive but encourages me to...so I can´t ask for more.We are currently planning a trip to Grand Cayman in the fall with some friends....found a really sweet deal, just couldn´t pass it up out on the East End.I just did my first shark dive in Roatan this summer......was pretty darn awesome! Hoping to dive with the stingrays in Cayman this trip. Always looking for a new adventure!!!I also got hooked on underwater photography...means just more stuff, but I love it.|

Eye to Eye: Photographers go Eye to Eye with an Oceanic Whitetip Shark... a shark that Jacques Cousteau described the oceanic whitetip as "the most dangerous of all sharks" and it is said that it has attacked more humans than great whites, tigers and bulls combined! I thought they were majestic!
