Cheap Bottles of Mateus

Out of all the chapters in this book, this chapter started out with the most true and breathtakingly realistic quote. "For all at last return to the sea- Oceanus, the ocean river, like the ever-flowing stream of time, the beginning and the end." -Rachel Carson. I'm not one to believe in evolution ( I do believe evolution in terms of… Continue

REEF GO BOOM; Death by Dynomite in Indonesia...

I know, the title sounds immature, I thought the same thing after I typed it... Yet, it has a feel to it. The people in Indonesia are "ignorant". Most of the fisherman don't know the harm they are doing to the reef. They are slowly killing it off, yet one can ask, Are they allowed too? The poor fishing communities heavily rely on the Fishing Industry, and when they are make very little hauling in large boats, they have to do what they need to… Continue

Depression in the Thousand Islands: Jakarta Bay

Wow... Thanks A Lot Osha! You've written so many nice and interesting chapters into this book, and then throw this depressing one in. Just Kidding... I'm actually glad this chapter was so much in detail and contained many facts that EVERYONE needs to know about. Nash always talked about how the reefs have changed near Andros since he started going there, and how a lot of the coral is dying. Well, hate to break it to you all (actually, Osha kinda already did), people are killing the… Continue

Serendipity in the Reefs, and Fishy Stories

Chapter 7, to me, was very informative. It made me think of what any person could do, with no boundaries, such as age or experience. What if we go down to the Bahamas and discover something new, serendipity to our main cause. It would be amazing to be written about in a magazine or a newspaper; the marine biology group from Smalltown, MO, smack in the middle of the continent, discover something on a yearly trip that experienced scientists and divers have just overlooked. It’s a stretch, but I… Continue

thanks for the message, korby.

however, i have thought abut this much, and i actually have a plan.
i just haven't shared this one as of yet.

because i want this site to be not only a fun communication tool and network...
i also want it to be a place that is dripping with solid intellectual discourse.

therefore- i want us to really sculpt the site into that very thing prior to
bringing in any of the alumni. i want them to be impressed with the work you have done up to that point.

this way- when they choose to contribute on the site... they will have a lot to live up to!
it is all about building excellence from the ground up. we WILL invite our alumni in. in fact, i can't
WAIT. however, we will do it with a bit of a plan. i am thinking about halfway through our Enchanted Braid
project we will have enough work to show for what we have been doing to open it up to a wider audience.

make sense?

i appreciate your message very much. keep 'em coming!

Island Time

Living on Island TimeThe first couple of days were spent waiting on this and on that and it truly felt like a year had gone by.  The first day was spent waking up early and driving to KCI airport where after about an hour or so of waiting we finally got on the plane that took us to Florida.  I sat in the very back of the plane with Zach and McCabe and I learned a valuable lesson from Zach when you get your free drinks on the airplane "always ask for the can".  The next morning we split into…See More

A New Experience

I woke up early and went to meet everyone at the library. Once we got our passports and tickets we all headed to the airport. We took a flight to Ft. Lauderdale.  Once there we all we out to eat and I had a Mahi-Mahi sandwich and tried some oyster, steamed clam, and calamari.  I think out of those 3 I will only have the calamari again.  Then we got our rooms and got the information for the plane trip to Andros.  We had the rest of the night to ourselves and I went swimming and hung out in some…See More

Loving the Bahamas!

I have known that I wanted to this program for a long time now. My brother did it back in 2003. I saw how much fun he was having learning the fish and then going out on the sail boats and seeing them in person. I saw what he brought back from the trip and it all sounded like so much fun i just had to try and go. So here I am! I took the class and went on the trip.Day 1 I couldn't sleep, I had to be up at 4:30 in the morning so we could meet at the library and and be at the air port around 6:20…See More

Time of my life!

Plane ride to Andros     My group got here 2nd and right once we got to Forefar we ate lunch and then got in the water.  I was ready to get right in and I saw so many fish.  Shelby Mills and I went snorkeling together.  The first fish we saw was a Beaugregory Juvenile.   Then we saw a sea slug.  It had orange and blue stripes going down its back.  Then we also saw an adult Beaugregory.  The next fish was a cocoa Damselfish.  This fish has a blue color on top ends and a dark spot on the upper…See More

Aye, Mon! (a.k.a. My Bahamian Experience/Greatest Week of 2013)

Where do I even begin? Or better rephrased, how do I start telling the tale of the most intriguing adventure I've ever gone on in my short 17 years of life? The most obvious answer would be to start with Day 1, which is only logical, but once you've started reading my account, I think you'll understand why I didn't know where to begin. Day 1- Friday, March 21st, Saint Joseph to Ft. Lauderdale Boy, I definitely wished I was a morning person that day. We met at a parking lot at East Hill's mall…See More

The Bahamian Experience

Everything about the Bahamas was pretty much perfect. The weather, the people, the lifestyle, the water, the air, the night sky, and the people. Did I say people twice? Heck yes I did because the people truly were some of the coolest people ever.They were some of the most down to earth and friendly people I have ever met. There was even a statue of a pair of hands shaking to really reinforce the fact that they were very friendly people.The first day that we spent on the island I played some…See More

Under the Sun-2013

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013Yesterday we arrived at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to begin our adventure miles from home. Around 12:30 PM, 7 of us loaded a small plane with a pilot named Eddie (I got to be co-pilot!) and we set flight over the ocean. The ocean is simply breathtaking and magnificent. Looking the 5,000 feet down to the shades of blue wasn't full of much to look at but I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I was looking for something to strike my eye, to jump out of the water...SOMETHING!…See More
