A business model for zero entry commercial hot tubs

that would be automatically cleaned after use.

My mom has a tumor in her spine that causes her great pain. One of the recommendations by her doctor would be a walk in tub for home use. She is moving out of her house to a retirement apartment before she could add one. No where in our community did the retirement apartments offer such a feature.

I was wondering if that could be a business model for a retirement community or an ancillary business set up to do it. The best option given to my mom at the first choice retirement community was the hot tub at the Y which definitely would not work (the furthest walk in the facility, screaming kids, and no zero entry but steps).

She went with the alternative - a heated pool at the number two facility that maintains a relatively high temperature (still not bath temperature level). She also still needs to contend with steps, but the walk is much shorter and she doesn't have to leave the facility.

I would add one to our house, but our shower/tubs are all on the second floor. I still might add one for my wife and myself, but it doesn't do my mom any good since she can't navigate the steps.

Any suggestions?

Cops Unaware They Were Filmed Breaking In - The FBI Warned Them

Where my family is originally from. Not a surprise at all. If you can't trust the FBI to police the police, then you are left the question:

Who watches the Watchmen?

Keto diet

I have been doing this since 12/7 (had my first doctor's appt on Jan. 20th). Since starting it I have gone from 353 to 310, and my lab work from 1/20 has improved dramatically in a little over a month.

Glucose - 158 to 111 in a month
Cholesterol - 233 (2/20/2021) to 123
Liver enzymes down about 20 points each in a month

I have yoyoed on weight my entire life. The difference this time is that I am not nearly as hungry. It wasn't that I was complete junk eater, it is just that I did consume fruit, whole grains and potatoes. I had an expectation of three meals and continuous snacking during the day to chase hunger which I always seemed to have.

Don't know if it will continue to work. As before I exercise (part of the reason my weight shot up from the 300# range was reduced exercising because of depression). 20,000 steps in the form of walking and stepping sometimes with hand weights. Also grab light dumb bell and use it while watching tv and use a heavier dumbell for presses, curls, and deadlifts.

A truly evil f__k - Father kills 4, including his 3 daughters, before shooting himself at Sacramento

Five people are dead, including three children, after a man opened fire inside a Sacramento-area church Monday night before turning the gun on himself. The 39-year-old gunman opened fire inside The Church in Sacramento, in the Arden Arcade neighborhood just east of the city, where a supervised visit between him and his daughters was taking place, according to authorities.

The three girls killed were 9, 10 and 13, said Sgt. Rodney Grassmann, a spokesman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office. Another man, who was not identified but was chaperoning the family visit, was also gunned down. “This was not a random shooting,” he said, adding that the shooter and victims “all knew each other.”
