Finally, a beautiful day Laughing

1. Have you been able to wear flip flops/sandals/open toed shoes yet?

2. At what age did you/would you let your child date?

3. Swimming Pools: Do you jump right in or sit on the side?

Those scientist guys might be able to tell--but the don't tell the rest of us.  I live in an earthquake area (aka Ring of Fire isn't it?)  But Jam no, we get no warning.  However, I am not scared of them--I've never been in a big one though.  The ground rumbles and you say Whoa, was that an earthquake? and you're done (thankfully!).  I'm knocking on wood right now btw...

Honestly the saltwater pool at our favorite inn is like a tiny slice of aquatic heaven...

"Some homes when we lived in Houston had salt water pools, they were like small paradises," ------- My dad's pool is saltwater and apparently very nice.

"An earthquake would creep me out, We had a little tremor about a year ago for a few minutes. Are they predictable like hurricanes?" ------------- No. They do try, but it is an iffy business, not like hurricanes. All they can really tell is when pressure builds along a fault. But they can't usually tell when or where it will rumble.

Earthquakes are only predictable in the minds of the Italian Judiciary.

Not sure about the maintaining but I think it cost a lot of money to change over.

Yep, Some homes when we lived in Houston had salt water pools, they were like small paradises, Lol.. I could be wrong but I think they're easier to maintain too.....

An earthquake would creep me out, We had a little tremer about a year ago for a few minutes.  Are they predictable like hurricanes?

"One of my fondest memories of my mom from my younger years is that she always played in the waves when I was growing up." ----------- Yeah, mine always tried to get me in the water too. Not sure why kids like that so much. Now that she is grown, I can finally go in the water again, but it is a little late now, lol.
