Craig O'Manion I really like the idea of swimming lessons seen as a right and not something extra that only some kids get. In India and other countries scores of people drown every year only because they do not have basic swimming skills.

apparently I really want to learn Hindi. I love Bollywood movies, and I love the sound of the language.

Craig O'Manion I haven't been on here in a while but I HAVE been swimming LOL, almost every day. Glad to see this site is still here as a resource and connecting point, even if I can't browse the web in the water like I would like to.

Craig O'Manion Is it global warming or what? Every outdoor pool I have been in this summer is warm.

One of my friends told me about Lake Lanier drying up. There is a ring of mud & driftwood all the way around the lake. Is that from the lake being drained to use the water or are there other factors, such as drought?

My pool is wamed by the sun. When the pool pump is running, the water travels through a solar panel, making my pool warm enough for swim classes. Infants and children are more comfortable in pools above 82 degrees. 86 degress is perfect.

Craig O'Manion Why is it the more often I get into the water the less it feels like water and the more it feels like air-conditioned velvet or something?

Craig O'Manion Just when I thought I'd adjust my sleeping patterns to fit pool hours, I have found a 24 hour pool. Maybe now I can learn to sleep like a whale, half my brain at a time. It works for them!

Craig O'Manion If I wear a sea lion costume will they just let me sleep at the pool so I don't have to get up and drive back in the morning?

Craig O'Manion If I wear different trunks this morning will they not realize I was just there last night?

I usually wear a one-piece cross back suit. Every now and then, I wear a Tyr butterfly back suit. Do you keep a suit in your car?
Rebecca Ruth Gill   at 11:42pm June 14
I'm trying to keep a suit in my car. I do keep a first aid kit and a rescue breathing mask.

Craig O'Manion Realized its cool to swim in an indoor pool in a large glass enclosed space when it is raining hard outside.
