Was in my local dive shop the other day to get routine maintenance done on my gear. Guy at the shop recommended I take a look at Intova- a dive light brand that has gotten into the camera business.
After doing some research, I've decided on the Intova to take to Belize in May/June.

I think this election will tell if the tea party wave is still growing or if it's begun to crest.

Looking at the SEC schedule, it's far and above the biggest game that weekend in the SEC. Most of the top teams are playing Sisters of the Poor U that day.
I've been invited to an event that evening, and won't go if the game is at night. I'm assuming CBS will pick it up for their afternoon game....

They are TWO AND A HALF GAMES OUT OF FIRST PLACE two games after the All Star Break.
