A message from Ed

Those of you who actually read these fine words at the beginning of the mag should be punching air I predicted the Election result bang on. In fact I even had a monkey on it. And won a pony. New BCDs all round.

On a serious note, I hope everyone managed to get home if they were trapped in volcanic ash misery a while ago. I sadly couldn't get out to Egypt, but Thomas Cook kindly refunded the flight costs. This hasn't quite been the same scenario with the pre-paid hotel. Despite being able to charge continued costs to divers stuck out there, I can't seem to get my money back for the room that was still occupied.

If anyone else has similar (or worse) problems, please drop us an email as the team here are happy to lobby on your behalf in one of those pugnacious-journalist-know-it-all sort of ways, and we will print a 'Wall of Shame' next issue.

I was stuck in Spain and had a five day trek to the north of the country to get the ferry home from Bilbao. Thank God the lad had his iPod Touch and charger. I am now proficient at GTA as well as Call of Duty a great asset when surrounded by modern yoof.

On that subject, London Diving Chamber has launched the worlds first app to help divers in trouble. It's got chamber locators, symptom checkers, info on all diving related health problems and much more. And it's FREE. Find it on iTunes 'London Diving Chamber App'.

And so to this issue. Tyson gets a family, liveaboard insights and a guide to Sharm nightlife.

And if you're stuck between issues for 'humour' check Rob's Blog, and Ed's too.
