Spent the last 3 1/2 months in sunny Sarasota Florida taking care of Mom following surgery. No diving in the Gulf of Mexico... didn't want to leave Mom and you have to go out about 20 miles to hit anything interesting there from what I heard.

Haven't been able to post the last few months of my Dive Dry with Dr. Bill column, but I will be placing them on my web site as soon as time permits:
