SCUBA SHOW

Long time no see!  We have been very busy studying for the upcoming California Bar Exam which we're taking at the end of the month, so we haven't had much time for posting.  However, I was able to get away for a couple of hours to attend the SCUBA SHOW in Long Beach a couple of weekends back!  

Apart from the fact that the Convention Center was also rented out by Jehovah's Witnesses on that particular day, the Scuba Show was fun.  Nothing against Jehovah's Witnesses or anything, but they had rented out the entire Convention Center's parking structure and made Scuba Show visitors find alternate parking. The bathroom lines were also very long!  If you were there, you know what I'm talking about.  Next year, Scuba Show planners, please try to pick a day when there aren't thousands of people from different groups competing for parking spaces and toilets!  

However, once we were in, Christina and I had a great time running around the booths and checking out all the gear.  I was particularly impressed with Mares new women's line.  Also, a company is now offering full face masks with integrated communication systems.  The regulator is also integrated into the mask, so you don't have to clear the mask the traditional way.  How do you feel about communicating under water?  I have to say, I enjoy the peace and quiet down there!  

I really miss posting and reading your comments, and I look forward to this study mania coming to a close.  I'm trying to book a dive vacation for the end of August, so all suggestions are welcome!!  Hope everyone is well!

Hugs and fishes,

I went to the SCUBA Show on Saturday. It wasn't a rip off like I thought it would be and the beers were only $5.50, not $8 like someone had told me.

Full face masks with communication? Great, some people just don't shut up and now I have to listen to them underwater, too?

A dive vacation? How about Catalina?

Good luck with the BAR - I have lots of experience with bars, but only the kind you drink at.

I hope you're going to become the good lawyers of society - maybe you can start by overturning this stupid cellphone while driving law?

Hi! I know what you mean about the cellphone law. I have ten years of practice driving with a cellphone next to my ear, and now they tell me I can't do it anymore?

I have been interested to see whether there are statistics on how many accidents occurred with people trying to figure out how to use their bluetooth or other handsfree device.

Back to the grind!
