Baa, humbug! What's with all this waving? I've got better things to be thinking about.

In France it seems to be the same thing, most people wave, even the trawlers wave to me as I fish too. I understand that kayakers have difficulty waving but they usually acknowledge a wave with a nod of the head. As a diver however I realise that alot of yatghies (I have a problem spelling that word) can't see (or don't look) in front of them. I can say that because many of them realise that i'm there when the're nearly on top of me. I would imagine that not seeing is a good reason for not waving.

Quite correct, along with ensuring that you raise the Ensign at 0800 hrs each morning and lower it at sunset, now must dig out that application for a warrant to fly a blue
