♥Never Swim When There's No Life Guard And Never Swim Alone♥

Drowning and Near-Drowning: Prevention and Treatment

Secondary drowning can cause death 48 hours after exposure to water

Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning

Never Mix Alcohol/Drugs With Activities Near, Or In The Water! Never Swim or Boat When Intoxicated!

Never, swim out further than you can swim back to shore from in 30 seconds.

Teach Children To Swim.

I just wanted to share my experiences and some good advice about swimming safety.

I keep reading in the news about young people drowning. So I wrote this for everyone, everywhere.

Rip Tides (current)

An extremely strong channel of water flowing seaward from near the shore (see photos), through the surf line. National Weather Service-Rip Current Safety

Typical flow is at 0.5 metres per second (1–2 feet per second), and can be as fast as 2.5 metres per second (8 feet per second).

Rip Current

Rip Current Identification

I grew up in Bayonne and Southern New Jersey (Brick Town. About 20 miles from Seaside Heights Boardwalk) and spent every summer swimming in its ocean and occasionally in its lakes. But mostly in the ocean.

I've swam at beaches, from Point Pleasant to Atlantic City.

The ocean is not a place for an inexperienced swimmer, no matter how calm it looks.

If caught in an outgoing tide; or rip tide, Don't Try To Swim In To The Shore. SWIM SIDEWAYS FROM ONE SIDE OF THE BEACH TO THE OTHER. Rip tides are sudden and are only in parts of the water.

Don't panic. If you swim sideways you will swim out of the rip tide affected water. It's impossible to fight the tide and try to swim in. It will just keep pulling you out further.

The ocean may look beautiful, inviting and fun, but it can also be very dangerous for anyone who is not a strong swimmer. If you don't swim really good. Swim in the motel pool and stay in the shallow end. Pools can be dangerous too.

Always wear a life jacket-(swim vest), if you are not an experienced swimmer and always when boating.

Children's Swim Vests

Adult's Swim Vests

(I have no interests in these above companies. I just wanted to provide some links where economical swim vests were available).

Use caution when swimming in lakes, rivers, streams and generally everywhere. Riverbeds, streams etc, often contain tree roots and other debris that a swimmer can get caught on. 

The fresh water, unlike the salt water of the ocean, doesn't provide any buoyancy which helps you to float .

Buoyancy Salt Water vs. Fresh Water
by Chris Sullivan
Also, the mud bottoms can pull one down.

Always wear a bathing suit when swimming (or at the most, cotton shorts and a tee shirt). Do Not wear heavy clothing, like jeans. You'll sink like a stone!

When in a desperate situation in the water you do not need an extra 8 pounds (aprox weight of a wet pair of jeans) pulling you down!

I learned how to swim by age five using a swim/life vest. I still almost drowned in a lake, once when I was a teenager.

I was just wading and stepped into a drop (also called a dip). The next thing I knew, I was over my head and going down.

I was wearing jeans and they became heavy as lead and were pulling me under and that was it!

Luckily I had the time to tear them off and then I managed to struggle back up to the surface.

At the time I was surrounded by people close enough to almost touch me. But apparently no one saw me go under.

I am a most experienced swimmer. If I can almost drown, anyone can!


Never jump into unfamiliar water. As well as never dive into unfamiliar water.

One never knows how deep the water is, local and current tide strength, whether it's full of large rocks and other hazards that one can hit.

And Never Drive While Intoxicated! Not drunk, or stoned.

Take My Best Advice and My Word
Don't smoke reefer
(pot, blunts, hashish, etc).
It Is A Very Addictive Drug, Like Tobacco,
If you smoke it Once, You will get psychologically Hooked For Life!
Very Expensive!
You'll end up working just to support your reefer habit.
Don't Even Try It! And don't drink alcohol either. You will lose your senses and put yourself in much more of a position to be victimized!

Get Yourself a pizza and soda, or a burger and fries.
Go to a movie, buy a cd, or something you've been wanting.
Do something that's really fun!
You'll enjoy it much better than getting beat out of your money half the time too.

Enjoy Enjoy.
There is a good life for the youth of today. We are going to have Peace and The Promise of Freedom will be fulfilled.

Besides reefer doesn't get you high. It's just another altered state of consciousness, like alcohol. All it will do is make you nervous and dumb enough not to be even able to walk around safely. It's seriously physically dangerous, and like booze you can't drive a car.

There really is no such thing as high.
Street and prescription drugs only make you very sick and can kill you the first time you try them!

You Are Already High!
Youth Is Being Naturally High. It Does Not Get Any Better Than A Healthy Body and Mind and all those Fabulous Hormones pumping through you!

Drugs and alcohol only diminish your health and don't get anyone High.

I Predict A Renewed Wave Of Political Activism In 2014 ♥ A Very Busy New Year

☮♥Welcome To The Age Of Aquarius☮♥
Fasten Your Seat Belts.
It's Gonna Be A Bumpy Ride!

First We Have To, Shut Down-spectra's natural gas transportation pipeline in New Jersey And New York City!

The Objective Is Simple-NO Gas Pipeline!

spectra energy built a major natural gas pipeline expansion to New York City that runs through the heart of Jersey City. Jersey City & NYC will bear tremendous risks with no reward, all for the benefit of spectra energy shareholders!

Natural gas pipelines are prone to high risk of leaks that are released as either fine mists of toxic spray or result in fires and explosions that may do significant damage to property and life.

Also; NO Tar Sands, Mountaintop Removal, Gas Fracking, Strip And Longwall Mining. An American Tragedy And Global Climate Crime!

It Ain't Over, Till It's Over!
Big energy isn't faking us out, with their psychological manipulations. (A type of social influence that aims to change the perception or behavior of others through underhanded, deceptive, or even abusive tactics.)

Spectra is rushing through the installation of their high pressure natural gas pipeline under the Hudson River, from New Jersey to emerge at Gansevoort Street, where Con Edison will pick up the work and build out the last section of the pipe to link to their distribution system.

spectra's proposed pipeline, would run up 10th Avenue from next to the New Whitney Museum up to 15th Street.

Shut Down-spectra's natural gas transportation pipeline in New Jersey And New York City!

Or; It Ain't Over, Till It's Over.
Stop spectra!

♥For My Grandfather Michael Murphy. He worked on the Central Railroad; (in Jersey City), 100 years ago. Unloading box cars with a big hook. He and his fellow workers, sweltered in the summer and froze in the winter!

Action Post
Contact New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie

Contact New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo

Contact President Obama

Tell them; STOP, the spectra pipeline!

The spectra pipeline is expected to pump 800 million cubic feet of gas a day, starting in Linden, NJ (Bayway Refinery). Eventually making its way to Manhattan.

I Predict A Renewed Wave Of Political Activism In 2014 ♥ A Very Busy New Year

November 2 2013
Thirteen people were arrested for blocking the West Side Highway adjacent to the site where Spectra Energy has completed a pipeline entering Manhattan from New Jersey.

In December 2012, Jersey City filed a lawsuit in Federal Court to halt construction of spectra's proposed pipeline.

This suit, hasn't been heard by the court yet. I read the news every day awaiting the Court's decision so I know it hasn't been settled yet. Jersey City is still waiting the Federal Courts pending decision concerning the overturning of FERC's decision.

Private property rights are fundamental to freedom.

Founding father Samuel Adams described it as an “essential” right and wrote, “that no man can justly take the property of another without his consent.”

The Continuing Saga of; Stop spectra gas, aka The New Jersey-New York Expansion Project
Detailed Maps-Proposed Pipeline Route

The Danger

Incredibly; spectra wants to run the Manhattan portion of the pipeline from, Liberty State Park in Jersey City, past the Statue Of Liberty, Ellis Island, Castle Garden (War of 1812 Era Fort Clinton And America's first immigrant receiving center), The Holland Tunnel, The New Jersey Turnpike, etc and off Hoboken's pristine shoreline, into Manhattan's West Village. Spectra laying a pipeline to bring FRACKED gas into the West Village Really Scary! This is crazy!

On June 28 2012, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted approval to spectra to proceed with construction of the pipeline and ok'd spectra's original proposal.

Construction and testing are finished. Now this gas pipeline will go into service next month, with gas flowing  through Bayonne, Jersey City and offshore Hoboken.

From Bayonne to Hoboken, spectra's controversial natural gas transportation pipeline is expected to start pumping gas November 1st by Joseph R. Vena/The Jersey Journal October 24, 2013

I wrote this diary because I love New York City, Jersey City and they really turned Hoboken into a beautiful city. I have many friends in Manhattan and Jersey City.

I don't know how spectra got a permit for this project to begin with.

Considering the large number of people all over Jersey City, NYC and with the West Village's congestion, allowing spectra's gas pipeline in this densely populated area, is totally reckless and irresponsible!
