I am passionate about water. I drink it. I spent 7 years not drinking much water, for medical reasons, limited to 1 qt. per day. Then all of a sudden I was told to drink a gallon or more per day. When I couldn’t I wanted to drink plenty. When it was ordered, it was very difficult. When it was so limited I began to investigate all the different kinds of water that exist. Why do we have so much bottled water? What is good water and what is not? What is good for me?
First I discovered that those vending places that sell water for filling your containers are just water, maybe filtered, from the local municipality. Then I discovered there are only two companies in the US that actually take water from out of the ground and skip the municipality. The local municipality usually is recycling used water (ugh!) and adding things to kill the bad stuff and protect you from worse. I don’t want to drink chlorine which is in my clothes washing detergent and in that water. I certainly don’t want to drink extra vitamins and minerals added in my water unless my doctor prescribes it. I like visiting people who own their own well and test their water frequently for quality. They usually let me take water home. I always have those gallon jugs ready to go.
Then I discovered a big plan hatched back when by Nestle. Bottle water and sell it for a lot of money. People bought it! Nestle started buying up small properties in small communities to bottle their water and sell it all over the world. Soon those small communities caught on and wanted a piece of the profits from Nestle. I believe that is still in court. They made their profits and created a habit in people who blindly buy water without thought or even reading the fine print on the label. It also created concerns about the amount of plastic being tossed in the garbage.
Locally, I have two large grocery stores who market the water I like. There are two brands. Crystal Geyser and Arrowhead. About once a month I pay about a dollar per gallon for my drinking water. I have been washing dishes, clothes and me in the local treated water from the city. I am now considering what effect this has on my health. Washing my entire self from head to toe in the water I won’t drink seems counterproductive. I have not discovered my own solution to this dilemma yet. Nor do I know how the bad parts enter my body from the washing stage. I am not a scientist.

I want to speak to the leaders of countries and ask them why their children are hungry. And ask them what are they willing to do? May I help?
MERYL STREEP HAS A NEW MOVIE IN WHICH SHE PLAYS A MOTHER WHO REGRETS NOT RAISING HER CHILDREN.
I DID NOT RAISE MY KIDS.
I WANT TO BLOG ON THIS TOPIC AND WRITE A BOOK THROUGH THE PROCESS. I SINCERELY APPRECIATE ALL THE FEEDBACK COMING IN. YOU INSPIRE ME TO KEEP GOING.
THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO ONCE AGAIN BE GRATEFUL.
THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN TROUBLE AND NEEDS CHANGE. PEOPLE NEED TO CHANGE FROM THE INSIDE AND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL BE CONTAGIOUS SO WE WILL ALL SEE THE TRUTH OF THIS EARTH. THEY ARE NOW REPORTING EVEN THE WEATHER IS AFFECTED BY LARGE GROUPS OF NEGATIVITY (PEOPLE). EMOTION IS ENERGY AND COLLECTS OR ATTRACTS ITS OWN KIND (SCIENTIFIC FACT FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE). I JUST LISTENED TO GREGG BRADEN AND DEEPAK CHOPRA ON AN ANCIENT MAGICAL PRAYER. HERE IS THE FREE LINK:

FORGIVE MY USE OF CAPS AGAIN, MY EYES ARE TIRED AS WELL AS THE REST OF ME! I INTEND TO COME BACK AND REDO THE CAPS JUST FOR YOU. I AM NOT ANGRY JUST OLD AND ALMOST BLIND.
I LIKE HAY HOUSE PUBLISHING
I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BLOGS AND AFFILIATES OR BECAUSE I ADMIRE LOUISE HAY.
I STILL WANT TO BLOG INTO A BOOK BUT I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT DIRECTION I AM GOING.
I FEEL I AM NOT THINKING CLEARLY, BUT FEELING MY WAY IN THE DARK,
ONE GOOD IDEA TO NAIL THIS DOWN NOW: A 3 WEEK DAILY COURSE WITH HOMEWORK ON BLOGGING STARTS MONDAY.
I WANT TO SPILL MY GUTS, AND PURPOSE THAT TO INCLUDE ALL ADULTS IN THE TOPIC OF NOT RAISING MY CHILDREN. THIS COULD BE WOMEN OR MEN. I THINK MEN ARE MORE SILENT ON THE TOPIC AND WOMEN ARE MORE SHAME-BASED. AT LEAST I FEEL THE SHAME, THE JUDGEMENT, THE REJECTION, BUT THAT IS THE BEGINNING.

There are somethings better said out loud than written. So now I think maybe I will film my blog for you to watch. You will be able to see the emotion, the tears, and my laughter which express much more than pen on paper. Any comments my friends?

I’m old so I don’t see so good. I want to use capital letters for my eyes but some people think I am yelling. I AM NOT YELLING, JUST OLD. I LIKE TO MAINTAIN A SENSE OF HUMOR. IT RAINED LAST NIGHT. LOVE TO LISTEN TO THE RAIN.I WAS ALL NIGHT WITH MY ARTHRITIS IRRITATED BY THE RAIN. MAYBE I COULD LISTEN TO THE RADIO INSTEAD. NOT ONLY AM I OLD, BLIND, TIRED FROM BEING UP ALL NIGHT, BUT I AM NOW ALSO CRANKY. IF YOU MAINTAIN A SENSE OF HUMOR, IT TENDS TO REDUCE THE CRANKY. I WILL TRY TO BLOG MOST DAYS AND ANSWER YOU.
