Swimmers of Yesteryear had more Fun

I've contended in prior posts that the sissification of swimming pools has led to a less enjoyable swimming experience.  Lack of diving boards, shallow pools, etc. are just a few of my gripes.  Here's photographic proof of the fun they had in the days of your great grandparents. Enjoy!

PS  On the other hand, modernity has given us less horse-manure in our swimming water!

Going to the Beach? Be Sure to Bring Along Bob

If you are like me you like everything that keeps you around the water.  Have you ever dreamed of having your own submarine?  I sure have, but lets get real, I'm not a super rich Bill Gates or any of his ilk, but I still have my dreams and I'm willing to settle.  Introducing BOB, a personal underwater scooter - sort of a combination of a Segway, diving gear and scooter.  The concept is simple enough that it looks like anyone who wants to shell out a few clams on vacation can experience this.  Gotta love the ingenuity.  Check out the link.
