    The Top 10 Names for Your Pool...

    People love to name their boats and cars - why not name your pool!

    So, if you were going to name your pool, what would it be?

    The Top 10 submissions will be used in the July issue of the newsletter.

    Thanks!

    We'd name our pool "Vacation". I always tell folks we take our vacation a weekend at a time, floating in the pool. Another good name would be "Rotisserie", since when you're floating in the middle the circulation just spins you around while you bake in the sun.

    Sekellus is the celtic god of alcoholic drinks.

    It all came to be when we bought the house and decided we had to name the bar in the basement. I previously always used celtic gods as names for my computers, and thought it fitting that we name the bar after the media server that would be playing the music there.

    Then, once it got warmer, we started working on The Patio at Sekellus, in the back yard.

    Right now, it's either "The Swamp", "Swamp-Thing", or "The Black Lagoon".

    I've been afraid to get close to it, because I keep seeing this black fin breach the surface once in a while...
