(Picture was taken without permission from his website! His eye sight is fine, he just likes to be a pirate on occasion!)First, Harry Blalock has started a new one at Harryblalock.blogspot.com. Here he discusses his latest endeavor in becoming a Professional Dive Instructor. If you've followed Harry's Dive blog over the past year or so you know this is a major change for him. His journey and insight down the path of professionalism in the dive industry will undoubtedly be an intriguing and educational ride. I highly recommend you bookmark this one and check in often.
Next the Friends of the Marians Trench Monument now have a blog. This one is intended to help disseminate factual information about the possible marine protected area (MPA) surrounding the three northern most islands in the Marianas chain. It will also allow people to discuss their concerns and help everyone make an informed decision. It's only a few days old so help start the ball rolling by asking questions and voicing your own thoughts in the comment sections.
Also, this blog is now easier to follow along with thanks to a new gadget from blogspot. Over on the right hand side you can click on the "Follower" section located just under the really cool Feather Duster video or a little further down you can click on subscribe and have posts sent directly to you when they first come up!
Finally, I've got to let all of you parents in on this absolutely fantastic and often hilarious if not thought provoking blog from an ex-Saipan resident and mother of three. Is There Any Mommy Out There is an extremely well written, educational and entertaining read. Take the time to check it out; if you have kids you'll enjoy it for sure!
