Bottled Water - Is It Safe?

How Safe is the Water We Drink From The Tap vs. Bottled Water?

An interesting article from suggests that bottled water is not necessarily better for you or the environment.

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE: - Despite the Hype, Bottled Water is Neither CLEANER nor GREENER Than Tap Water

The message is clear: Bottled water is "good" water, as opposed to that nasty, unsafe stuff that comes out of the tap. But in most cases tap water adheres to stricter purity standards than bottled water, whose source—far from a mountain spring—can be wells underneath industrial facilities. Indeed, 40 percent of bottled water began life as, well, tap water.

Steelers Got One For The Thumb

Pittsburgh on the day the Steelers won the Super Bowl XL Championship

Being in Pittsbsurgh last night was almost as good as being at the game! The city is Alive!

At the end of the game I opened my door and listened to the ROAR! There were fireworks going off from every direction. People were pouring out of their houses (even though the wind chill was 13). Everyone was singing Steeler songs and waving their Terrible Towels. The entire Gateway Clipper Fleet were blowing their boat whistles . The trains were blowing their whistles all the way through town; not just at the crossings.

After speaking with my kids and brothers on the phone, I just could not resist so I put on my long underwear and hiking boots and ventured out on the treacherously icy roads to trek on down to Carson Street, carrying and waving my Terrible Towel. Each time a car went past, if you wave the towel, they'd blow their horn.

Super Bowl victory parade Tuesday
A victory parade Tuesday for the Steelers will start at Mellon Arena at 11 a.m.
It was an adrenalin filled trip (due to the icy streets and fear of falling and the thrill of winning). People were everywhere with HUGE smiles on their faces, sliding down the hill on the newly fallen snow. It had been raining off and on the whole day so there was ice under the snow. As I walked down the 15th Street Steps, the roar increased.

People were hugging and smiling at strangers everywhere.

Some of the kids (oops, younger-than-me generation) were so excited they were turning cartwheels and carrying each other around on their shoulders. Shouts of Steelers were everywhere. As I joined the throng parading up and down Carson Street, people were so joy filled they were "high fiving" each other (and me) as we passed. It was a rolling river of joy. Everyone was happy, except for the police. They were clad in riot gear and stationed shoulder to shoulder across S. 18th Street, "just in case", they said. There were four mounted on horseback, all with their riot gear (both body and face shields) in place. They were not needed here. The morning news said that in all of the city there were only eight arrests. I did hear that in Oakland there was a car overturned and a couch set on fire (that person must have been from W. Va. Univ. :-); they do that there).

There is Black and Gold everywhere... in every store window, house window, and on nearly every person. I took my digital camera along to take photos but had forgotten to check the batteries. Got only two shots before it went dead. Oh, well.

The experience was what I was there for!

We did it. We got our "one for the thumb".
