I want an App

If an app was made for "Water Realities" should it be called such? Are Apps the future in public involvement with information? I think Apps should be useable, fun and of real substance if claiming to be. Would a App for Water be one of how to buy? or how clean it is, or what? I want one that tells you what Ground Water at your GPS is like. Where does that Municipal Water System get it's Water and what are the Contamination issues there. Cost per Gallon and records of violations the Wtr. Dist. has had in past. This way one could figure what type of Water Treatment System to choose. No, one size does not fit all. There are areas in this Country that have such Water Issues that Pharmaceutical Companies advise not to use some Medicines based on region! Sound like a good App now? I was asked if I had even ever been to an area before! let alone currently lived there. Keep in mind this regional issue is a moving target as well! How about traveling, do you want to know what pollutants are in the Shower or Restaurant water you consume? The Skin absorbs as much or more of some Chemicals than the Stomach. Water is changing as is the mix of Chemicals and complex reactions to them. I am not going to list details of where to find out which ones are a problem because it is different for everyone. If you are often sick or get rashes, or have conditions that elude modern Medicine, take notice and learn more about Water, it is on my Mind daily.

HE Washing Machines, Smelly? or used wrong?

My good friend Jeff sent me a link @ Wall Street Journal "DC has ruined the Washing Machine" I read it, my response is I have an LG Tromm #2487. I have never had odor from my machine or clothes. I am a Plumber, I can get dirty, I get latex on my clothes, black carbon smudges from flappers, washers, and all kinds of schmutz on my clothes. I do not have soft water, I have extremely hard "City" Water. I read the instructions, before using and most often de-select the "warm" setting before starting cycle. I have twice washed a second time, a load of dirty truck rags that I use in my Van on a commercial level. I love my clean results, so does my very picky Japanese wife (Jane). We wash mats that the dogs lay on as well as 3 cats...this means Pet dander, hair etc. I consider my customer today who agreed with Jeff that HE machines stink to be telling me a true story. I think the model matters, brand is as much as model, and possibly miss use as per directions....I however must agree that a bad Machine even used correctly will still be a bad machine!, so, what am I saying? someone choose the wrong machine. I cant blame Washington DC. I will instead blame myself for demanding that DC make Standards and not insist products be tested beter first before going public. Just like the Piss Poor flushing Toilets of the 90"s and earlier this decade. We now have HE Toilets that work, as well as HE Washing Machines that work, it is time you go out and se for your self. Come back with some comments and model #'s....

Blogma is real esoteric philostrabation that is true because it is found online, and it confirms your beliefs or, it infuriates you and you respond accordingly. Once you respond, it is too late, the Blogma is born.....all you can do is support your position with a decided level of civil or un civil banter. Now what the hey does this have to do with Water? Too many ways to list, so you tell me your take on Water, should it be a Human Right, as Air? or if someone suffocates someone, (no Air), that is Murder, but is depriving them of Water is just as bad? Seriously this happening in other countries, by American Corporations by building Dams and since down stream is left dry, it is OK because the Corp. bought the land to build the Dam!

I will try to Blog daily!

I taught a class at San Diego Urban Corps. this week, wow, what a great program and facility. Seems to me what I taught was that Water is more important than they realized. They are ordinary people, they had no idea that so much waste was happening. I surveyed every student and that was the most often statement. I did not just fill them with my opinions, I used "just the facts Mame"

My other thought of the day, is that YOU need to tell me what you want to know about Water? like why is it so expensive, or why is it so cheap? so dirty, why does anyone think it is unsafe to drink? Why does NY have the best Water? why is the most expensive Water in the country where it rains weekly? and the cheapest Water where rain is rare, and no Ocean or Lake is near by??? Go figure.

Does the Sewer Treatment Plant remove the Hormones in my Medication? from my Waste? Where does all the hundreds of tons of endocrine disrupters go when shipped out of the Drug Factories and Pharmacies ? Does my body keep all of it or pass most of it in tact into a Toilet? Why are Reptiles as confused about gender issues as People are.
Is there real Labs finding mixed gender in all walks of life? (swim, fly, crawl included). Has every Civilization in the past that has fallen had severe Water issues? How many facts are known about Water that are being ignored? Wouldnt you think that "The People responsible will tell us if we need to know" RU Listening?

Yes, Water is still on my Mind, as always, Greg
