im now a padi advanced with nitrox with a total of 34 dives all since feb in devon , dorset, kent, stony, elerton, crapenwray, st abbs & teneriffe, my next step is to do rescue diver and then get into the technical side as i would like to see loads of wreck sites.

What point is Co. Durham "up North". Thee confuses thy with odd phrases! Depends on your geography Chris. There is further North than England you know! Just from a personal "looking down on you all from Gods country" point of view. We "WILL" stop them, we "WILL" get border control! If I thought I'd get away with it a few miles of tanks berms and barbed wire wouldn't go amiss. Hadrians wall obviously isn't quite up to the job!!!!!

seriously, Welcome to YD. You'll find us a more than accomodating bunch. I will personally vouch for it!

Take care and safe diving,
Peter

There was an Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman (as in all the best jokes...!).  One day, they stumbled across a magic lantern and - adhering strictly to tradition - they rubbed it and found a genie popped out.  He was feeling a little mean that day, so rather than offering each of them three wishes, he said that they could have one wish each.
The Irishman - obviously - felt that he should uphold national pride and went for a pint of the black stuff.  his wish was instantly granted.

The Scotsman - again adhering to national stereotypes - decided that he wanted to ask for a wall right around Scotland in order to keep the filthy Sassenaches out.  Again, the genie was only too happy to oblige.

The Englishman was a thoughtful type, and before making his request asked that the genie told him a little more about this wall.  "It's 30 metres high, entirely round Scotland - there is absolutely no means of getting in or out, just as the man requested" replied the genie.  The Englishman smiled softly to himself before making his own wish .... 'fill it up with water'



Anyhoo, enough nationalistic ballyhoo - welcome aboard Chris!!
