In today's world sometimes you don't know what to believe - is a celebrity endorsement what they really think? is a recommendation in a commercial real or scripted? does Nutribullet really blend ingredients at the cellular level? Does the twitching lure really catch fish because it aligns with their DNA? At BB though we do rely on word of mouth as the recommendations come from swimmers. Many people come for the first time because they have had a recommendation from a trusted source. The early swimmers tell us about the conditions. Today one told us about the blue bottle out there. Just one. Sorry about the welts Nan but thanks for the heads up
Here we all are - swim conditions, coffee recommendations, investment advice, health hints etc are swapped. Because word of mouth is most reliable.
John - always managing us - thank you - tells us about the one blue bottle. Now it is over to us to decide

What I have been reading this week: John Safran's book, Depends What You Mean By Extremist. Pretty good stuff and luckily some funny bits for such a topic
