RECREATION and ACTIVITIES
SCUBA DIVING INFORMATION
I am a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) certified scuba instructor and an avid
recreational diver. Visit my scuba web site for information on scuba diving. Click on the picture on the left to
see me at depth in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Scuba Diving Informational Web Site
I was an official scorekeeper (and fan) of the AGGIE (ROADRUNNER) VOLLEYBALL team at NMSU
(see schedule at attached link) - congrats to all! I also am a recreational player participating
in NMSU intramurals and the DESERT VOLLEYBALL ASSOCIATION (DVA)
leagues and tournaments. The DVA leagues are indoors in winter and outdoors in summer. Outdoors is on grass or sand
courts. Leagues and tournaments have a variety of formats from doubles thru co-rec sixes.
Water and snow skiing are sports which I enjoy. If its winter, its time to think about snow. Most of my
skiing is done at SKI APACHE in Ruidoso, NM. Visit their web site at: SKI APACHE or for general skiing information try skiing info. A cool site about skiing, equipment, instruction tips, photo
galleries, on-line maps for NM skiing is ISKI - good for gear finding too.
Travel, Leisure, and Misc.
Travel and Adventure: (**NEW)Sailing Adventures; Italy; Peru (Cusco & Machu Pichu); Spain (La Alhambra); Mexico...more to come later.
If its a pretty day, lets go play outside! Las Cruces Weather => Want
to see something that begs the question: "What am I doing here?" - Check out Hawaii weather/photos/surf etc. right now
(realtime - as you read this)!
I love playing sports but don't care much about watching (esp. pro-sports), so NO links to sports pages here. I
do workout some, including jogging, playing sports, and weight
After working out - Smoke a good Cigar four or five times a year. Read any good
BOOKS lately? While drinking a
tall cold one and cooking a nice dinner.
Pets:, I have had horses, tropical fish, birds, and cats; but, I am really a dog man. I like working dogs like
pointers, setters, cattle dogs, shitzhund trained rottweilers. A good trained dog is a real
joy and great companion, like my little female. How about some rotty
Enjoy outdoor recreation, such as hiking, skiing (see above), mountaineering, canoeing -
rafting, and such stuff. I even keep up on expeditions, such as the PBS/NOVA program on EVEREST
Got about $10 invested in stocks (what do you expect on a professor's salary). I check on these at a stock-market site. about once a month.
Want to know what TIME it is exactly from the NIST
atomic clock? Have a phone number and want to know the name? Reverse
phonebook search and a map of where they live (does regular name/number lookup too)
Talking about MAPS (where does Jane Doe live?, what's the best route to Joes' Supermarket?, show me San Francisco wharf
district street map, etc.), the best site is MAPQUEST but Digital City is pretty good. How about those National Geographic Society maps complete with basic country info. NGS
Need a General Dictionary, or a Thesauras? How about a good Quotation. Want to
search the WEB. Want to learn about my
area of interest Microprocessors Need to do a Spanish-to-English
