Sorry for a shameless plug :), but I love this book, recently authored by two Californian "myco prodigies" Noah Siegel and Christian Schwarz : Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast - highly recommend to have it in your collection. An excellent, thorough, and illustrative coverage of mushrooms of the northern California coast.

Housekeeping update.

We are introducing a new category - Fun - which is intended for trivia, fun, and anything else you find entertaining and amusing for our scuba diving crowd. We are also removing the Certification and Share a Story categories - or rather, merging them with the General Discussion category.

On a recent dive, I noticed a diver was inserting these two 'devices' in his ears. He couldn't tell me exactly what they did but said they certainly help him to equalize. They might help to keep the ear canal open, but other than that, I don't see any other useful function. Anyone used these before?

I want to share my scuba diving pride and joy with you - my second son just got OW certified. He was brave enough to do his open water dives in Monterey Bay, California in wet suite in 52-54 F degree water (11-12 C)! Did not even 'blink' :) My oldest son (left, on the photo) got his OW cert 2 years ago, and already been diving our North California cold waters and in Mexico warm waters with me. 2 down, 2 more to go!

One of the most charming critters at Lembeh - Orangutan Crab (Oncinopus sp.). Watching how this guy eat is so much fun: https://youtu.be/fihuk0BVNiU?t=3m35s
