comment Swimming Alone in a Pool
It's generally a common-sense good practice, but the Rambam? Hm... the usual places for safety recommendations are Personality Traits Ch. 4 and Murderer & Preservation of Life, Chs. 11-12. I didn't see it in either of those.

comment Trimming Toenails in sequence
Thank you Danny. I think this belongs here: mi.yodeya.com/questions/1118/rules-for-cutting-nails . I think this question was whether the same exact discussion would apply to TOENAILS as it would to FINGERNAILS.

comment Mikvah - Non Jewish Husband
From yoatzot.org (emphasis added): "In a situation in which a married woman is not considered niddah, she is permitted to immerse in a mikveh without a bracha on any night she pleases." (5741); "Throughout your married life, you may immerse in the mikveh if you so desire." (5437) ; "...for a spiritual purpose alone, and has no practical halachic implications ... It would be best to explain the situation to the mikveh attendant and consult with a local rabbi." (4979)

comment Mikvah - Non Jewish Husband
The examples cited of minhag for non-obligatory use are men or married women. There is a prohibition on single women using the mikva -- need to cite sources soon. Regardless, the rabbi/women who are in charge of a mikva have every right to restrict its non-obligatory use as they see fit. In some communities, the women vote on whether to allow men's use.

YDK, see the links. The gas isn't the main thing. But some say you should specify "the extra gas is gratuity for lending me the car."
