Thanks for the information. I will contact them soon. A little about me: I am now taking refresher swimming classes at the Harlem YMCA. I learned to swim as a girl in brownies, but after almost drowning, I stayed away from pools. Then again at 25, I took lessons and would join a friend and swim a few times a week after work. However, since moving to NYC more than 10 years ago, I have barely been near a pool. So now, I will complete my lessons, then take a scuba diving class. I I have lived near the water my entire life, and I love it. Now is the time that I get over all my water issues and dive in completely. Thanks again for the information.
Makes perfect sense. I think I might give this a try. Since I have never done it before (and never even gave it a second thought) this is quite the challenge. I bungy jump but that's the extent of my adventurous life!
Thank you so much. I might try the Scuba diving with the older kids but right now I have lots of little ones. It might be an adventure for them. Let me discuss this with the swim school and we'll make a decision. Thank you for the idea. I appreciate it!
I got your question about the dive show Beneath the the Sea.Unfortunatley, I work for the show and don't get to see much of it. If you have been there you know that even if you go as an attendee, it is difficult to see everything. When I had my free time, the only things I got to do was attend the PADI Forum and the film festival. Also, DEMA is a better show to go to to get the update on new products
It was a real treat meeting you at April Pools Day in Norfolk. I am glad I had the opportunity to meet you personally. Let's keep in touch......by the way - I am going to begin my swimming lessons soon - next........scuba :) peace & love.......Josh's mom w
It's a small world (6 degrees?)
My parents are from St. Kitts and I still have family there. I've been there for Christmas 8 of the 9 past Christmas seasons.
If you dive there again, I recommend that you dive with Kenneth. I believe he is the oldest dive agency on the island--he is Kittitian--and certainly the only diver operator that looks like us.
Maybe to get our 6 degrees down to 4, I lived around the corner from Evander. I lived on 219 street between Barnes and Bronxwood Avenues. I left the Bronx for school in 1987 and officially relocated to Atlanta May 1993. I miss the roses in everyone's front yard and being so close to cultural centers like the Bornx Zoo and Museum of Natural City, but otherwise NYC is like Gotham to me...gray.
I've logged 70 dives, but have yet to log a dive with NABS or AUE--though I have been affiliated with AUE since 2004 (certified in 2002).
Being the single mom of a 12 year old nondiver does not help. Perhaps this year will be different and I'll get to not be the only chocolate jumping off the boat--(with the exception of Kenneth's boat in St Kitts).
You were great on the Donny Hathaway documentary on TV ONE. I knew you played the drums but this blew me away. I have a nice photo we took last year at the Hall of Fame. Send me your e-mail ,and I will get you a copy. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cell 954-303-6097. Keep on keeping on brother. You are a legend!
