    anything special done for winter?

    Excuse my lack of official terms, but I have a little bubbly thing to prevent ice forming. Winters are mild here but it can still ice over. I always test that early.

    Fear of child falling in?

    You could erect a low fence around it, you know, a foot or so high just to differentiate between the two areas. When I was a kid, I wouldn't walk over a small fence like that, I'm sure. Just because it's obvious you're not meant to. But I suppose it depends on how old they are.

    Steve Irwin

    I feel sorry for his family and he did a lot for animals but in a way I do think that the media attention right now is a little bit much.

    Where do you live? Get some wildlife expert in on it if you are not sure but most snakes are often harmless depending on your location.

    It is getting chilly fairly quickly in the evenings but maybe it just seems like that as we had such a hot summer.
