And at last count, I had 50+ hot tubs on display so the selection is great. -Max
So now it’s officially over. In my eyes the season was always over after the Super Bowl, and the Pro Bowl never really mattered. This is the tough time of year for Cincinnati sports fans. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy watching the Bearcats, and the Musketeers but if neither of them are playing it makes for a long evening. I am a baseball fan, but don’t go gaga over pitchers and catchers reporting. I am soured over both the NHL and the NBA and their labor dispute shortened seasons the past couple seasons. So what do you sports fans do to pass the time for the next month? Once you hit March, college basketball gets into tournament play, and there are actual baseball games to watch, but February sports are very lacking. Please don’t tell me to watch The Bachelor, American Idol, Survivor, etc. as in my opinion they have all outlived their useful life. Any ideas?
Will the Reds make the trades they need to be a World Series team next season? As
one of my colleagues put it, “They already have.”. Is this true? Will we see the best and one of
the most historic teams in baseball falter again? When it is most important? As you can see, I
am quite the skeptic. With the pickup of Choo, who’s on-base-percentage is 4th in the league,
and the release of some once faithful talent, we are poised to make another run at the
championship. As long as our bullpen can continue its efforts on the mound, the Cincinnati Reds
stand a chance to hold a flame to some of the great teams of the past.
“Sign Barry Bonds!”, another colleague says as I tell him what I am blogging about.
“Really?”, I reply, “Does that make any sense?”. That’s when I realize Bond’s
on-base-percentage and RBI stats would really suit our team well. The circus sideshow that is
his life would probably be an unwanted distraction and I don’t know if Dusty Baker wants to take
on that challenge again. “Pull Larry Walker out of retirement.”, the same colleague responds with
definitive faith in the fact that we just need someone to score more RBI’s. And to appease him, I
agree. More runs will translate positively in all respects. Runs win games. The Reds need to win
games, true, but they must focus on winning without errors. Tightening up the seams and
playing without flaws. This is what made The Big Red Machine so successful and what the
modern day Redlegs need to refer to in order to be a championship team like their
Dusty Baker and company have something to prove in 2013. Raw talent and passion for
the game are the oil that will make this machine run smoothly. But fundamentals, maintaining
healthy talent and some discipline in the infield will win them championships. My faith is high but
the incredible trainwreck the Reds found themselves in at the end of the last season keeps my
skepticism piqued. Time will mend all wounds, lets just hope the scars of last season don’t inhibit
the team in 2013.

The root of many spa problems, both in terms of water quality, as well as water flow, is quite simple: the cartridge filter(s). I cannot stress to new and old spa owners alike how crucial it is to be mindful of the condition of this often ignored part. I call the cartridges “parts” because it reminds me how easy it is for one seemingly small part to shorten the life of the entire power pack system.
While I will not go into specifics at this moment, I will give a brief overview of this topic. Cartridge filtration is extremely effective in removing any number of larger particulates that may enter with the bather. On a much smaller scale, it is able to handle most organics and body oils. The problem arises when the filter, only able to hold a certain amount of debris, becomes saturated, or begins to break down, allowing the water that is supposed to be clean returning to the spa. When the cartridge is by-passed, in either of these scenarios, the effect could be potentially very costly.
I will talk more about this at a later date. Until then, feel free to call the store if you would like to know the correct procedures for cartridge care and maintenance.
Hard to say. We travel well. We do get a lot of calls from people asking if we will build a pool or deliver a hot tub to where they live. It all depends. Our first rule is that we want to be able to guarantee service on any product we can sell and if you are too far away, we can’t do this. Please remember that if we build a pool for you, part of your deal is the assurance that we’ll take care of all the needs that arise after the sale.
So where do we go? To points east, we have gone as far east as Jackson Ohio, Bainbridge, and Greenfield. To the north—Dayton, Court House, Wilmington, Oxford, and Middletown. Going South, we’re happy to serve Sparta, Union, Owenton, Crittendon, Maysville, and surrounding areas. And to the west, our good friends in Indiana are covered if you are in Lawrenceburg, Vevay, Sunman, or Moore’s Hill. And in all cases, maybe just a little farther.
While most of you are preparing to spend more time inside, we are busy putting together your options for outdoor furnishings. I’ll be sure to post different product changes through the winter and spring, but one such update is with Berlin Gardens. If you aren’t already aware, Berlin Gardens is an outdoor and casual furniture manufacturer that uses exclusively recycled milk jugs to produce their “lumber”. Now, with respect to the update, Berlin Gardens has added two new colors in aruba blue and chocolate brown on black. With their already extensive selection of finishes these should be two more winning options. They have also introduced swivel rockers for dining, 60” round tables, bar height end tables, a buffet table, and a new chaise. They have already printed and released their 2013 catalogs, so you can be certain to find images of all the new products right here. I encourage you all to stop in and see this incredible product line.
I know winter is not the typical time of the year when people want to start looking for a new pool. However, if you come in and purchase one now, you will get first dibs on install dates. Then when it starts getting warm out and people are just starting to look at purchasing their pools, yours is already there and starting to warm up. That means more usage out of your pool!!!
If you have a basement, and you haven’t looked into a pool table, I have one question? Why the heck not? I have seen basements large enough to house Jay Leno’s car collection that have no pool table. Bar? Yes. Audio/Visual capabilities to rival a movie studio? Of course. Is your basement the room in the house where the real party always ends up? Do you have kids? The list is quite long. I’ll spare you the minutiae.
I was born and raised with a little known medical condition: spazitis. I’m pretty sure they changed its name to something more professional sounding, like spazmosis. I’m uncertain. Anyway, I discovered in my late teens and early twenties that I could play billiards well enough to buy my own cue without looking like a total dork. One problem… I was, and still am, exceedingly hot and cold. One game I leave my opponent in the dust (or chalk?), the next, I launch the cue ball onto a table across the pool hall.
What I am getting at, though, is quite simple. Billiards is an elegant game of finesse and raw power. The player who learns to concentrate and shoot, without overthinking it, is the player who tends to win. It is a game that will pull you in very quickly. If you’ve always wanted a pool table, but are uncertain if you’ll use it, perhaps you should rack a few at a pool hall and see just how much you want to improve.
Life is about slow, steady improvement. Billiards promises to offer the same rewards. Play more pool, live a better life. It makes sense to me… And, as my wife says, “that’s roughly half the battle.”
