Passion For BaseballWritten by Aron Wallad
Continued from page 1
Every year this team beat us. We never beat them. It had almost become an obsession for me to beat them. This year we finally did. After game I was talking to their captain and kidded him that now I can die in peace. He replied by saying that it has been true joy playing us these past years because he can tell we loved game and played like it.
Why do a bunch of “old” people continue to play game of softball? I truly believe that we can not give up love of baseball and passion we have for it. It is part of us and it has shaped who we are. If you looked at each one of us in our profession or home life, way we live our lives are similar to how we play game. Getting back to earlier question on why is it that some people can recite stats or remember every play in a game? It’s love we have for game of baseball. The passion and love for game helps define who some of us are. Find your passion and share it with world and make each one of us that much better for knowing you.

Splish, Splash! Swimming Pool Safety everyone should knowWritten by Rebecca Blain
Continued from page 1
Filters, Pumps and Other Mechanical Parts One aspect of pool care and safety that many neglect to consider is maintenance of their pool filters, pumps and other mechanical parts. These parts, all of them electronic in some fashion, can cause injury or death if not used carefully. A pump with a soured cable, for example, can cause electric shock to those using and working with it.
When you are working with this style of equipment, you need to make certain that you read all of safety warnings for that particular unit, and keep them out of reach of children. If your pool is closed for winter, you need to make certain all of parts are put into proper place over winter, so that no injuries can be caused by them.
Chlorine and Other Pool Chemicals One of most important things you need to do when you have a pool is to make certain that you keep all of swimming pool chemicals and toxic materials used to keep pool clean out of reach of children. These chemicals are very dangerous, and should be treated as such.
While chlorine is used in water for pools and even tap, you need to remember that amounts are a lot less concentrated in tap than in pool. Consuming straight chlorine can be deadly, so you should be careful not to expose yourself or your children to toxic amounts of it.
Seasonal Pool Care and Maintenance When you own a pool, caring for it is a job that will take up a great deal of time. However, neglecting to clean or care for your pool can cause very bad side effects. First, a non-treated and cared for pool is a perfect breeding ground to mosquitoes and other pests, some of which can carry diseases that can be transmitted to your family members.
On account of this, you need to make certain that your pool is either covered, or that you clean out all of leaves and debris and treat it on a weekly basis. Uncleaned and untreated pools also contain bacteria and algae that is unacceptable for your children and family members.
If you do not clean pool, you should not be swimming in it, as it can pose a health hazard. If you keep up on cleaning and maintaining of your pool, you and your family can all enjoy benefits pools offer.
Enjoying your Pool With all of these swimming pool safety rules in mind, it can sometimes seem like enjoying your pool is a lot of work. It is, but well worth it. Lazy summer days spent drifting on floats, or luxurious swimming through clean blue waters can be very relaxing.
If you keep safety rules in mind, you won't get hurt and can fully enjoy your investments. By not diving in no dive zones, and avoiding running, you can make certain that you can fully enjoy your pool experience without high risk of injury.
