Enough on the Water?

I suppose the career I had in wastewater treatment has a lot to do with my fascination with water. In all honesty however, I have been spellbound with water all of my life. It all started I suppose when at the tender age of 2, I threw some of my building blocks into the toilet and flushed it. If they'd stayed in the bowl it would have been no problem but, the blocks stopped up the entire apartment building we lived in flooding some of the units on the bottom floor. At least that's what my parents tell me. I guess they should have know I was going to be a problem when as my Dad puts it, I flushed a small statue of liberty that lodged in the toilet bowl's trap. My poor Dad had to pull the toilet up to get the statue out. What happened to the statue you may ask? I'm pretty sure he threw it away at that point since the toilet was used previously to his removal of the bowl. As I grew up the interest in water moved away from the domestic and more toward the sporting side of water use. I'm a certified wastewater plant operator but, I'm a certifiable fishing nut. I was diagnosed with fishing pox around 5 or 6 years of age. It's a fine and pleasant misery that I have enjoyed all my lif

A couple more interesting water facts:
  1. The total amount of water on the earth is about 326 million cubic miles of water.
  2. Of all the water on the earth, humans can use only about three tenths of a percent of this water. Such usable water is found in groundwater aquifers, rivers, and freshwater lakes
Borrowed from All About Water Dot Org.  While today's designs don't all have images of water they do revolve around one basic fact. We all need water to live. These bottles are really kinda cool. We bought 2 of them and are really happy we did. The lids are a twist lock design and do not leak. They're lightweight aluminum and lined with a material that exceeds food grade standards. Read about them here.
