Hot Tub

  • According to the experts, potato chips are the worst food you can eat in the hot tub.  If you drop one, it will make a gummy, gluey, disgusting mess.  Popcorn, on the other hand, floats.
  • The first hot tubs in the U.S started showing up in California in the early 1960’s and were made from used oak barrels, wine tanks and olive vats.
  • A Dog’s Life – Women like spas and men like spas.  It turns out that even man’s best friend likes spas.  At least that’s the case with Justice, a police dog in Passaic County, N.J. When the Belgian Malinois came down with a crippling hip condition, his two-legged partner in crime fighting went out and bought him a portable spa.
