Freedom To Tap Into Our Wonderful Water Supply ?>

Freedom To Tap Into Our Wonderful Water Supply

Oh the grimness of a lank damp January – somehow this year it does seem a bit more dire than previous damp Januaries.  Possibly the fact we don’t have the freedom to get out there and go for walks down the high stree or other shopping malls probably heightens the feeling of being shut in.  We’re currently only allowed out for exercise once a day and that means exercise, not loafing about chatting socially.  The need to get a grip…

Grimy Office Kitchen Or Splendid Water Cooler

One of the sadder things about restrictions on our ability to visit the office is that we can’t congregate around the water cooler any more.    This was the recognised meeting place for office gossips and it would never take very long for news to reach all corners of the work space.  Of course, if you were the subject of the tittle tattle, it wasn’t quite so welcome but on the whole it was an easy and free way to get…

All Hail The Power Of A Water Cooler ?>

All Hail The Power Of A Water Cooler

I’m strongly of the opnion we don’t appreciate water as much as we should.  I know many who never think of taking a glass of water during the day & in fact only do under sufferance when nagged by a gym or Pilates instructor.  I have always been a ‘water baby’, & throughout my childhood years I was checked regularly to ensure I wasn’t actually diabetic as I drank so much water every day.    When I’m in an unfamiliar setting,…

Longing To Using Water Dispenser In Care Home

One of the biggest changes brought about during the covid-19 shutdowns is not being able to visit loved ones in care homes.  All visits stopped near end of March and for the safety of all, no one has been able to visit inside the homes who are not staff.    All food deliveries have been left outside and all their cleaning has been strenuous.    Pre virus, we drove to my mother’s care home and immediately  use the washrooms before having a…

How UVC Combats Nasties In Wards & Water Supplies

There have been many thoughts about how to sanitise water that is used in office water cooling machines.  UV light seems to be the most popular amongst modern thinkers and it  has even been promoted as a possible means of ridding the world of the virus pandemic.  That’s taking things a bit far but there is definitely a body of evidence towards the thinking that UVC light is very effective against decontamination and sanitisation.  It’s one tool that’s been used…

Dividing & Consquering Messy Sisterhood

A young acquaintance of mine works with her sister and they share offices.  Interestingly,  although very close, they are like chalk and cheese when it comes to cleanliness.  The elder sister has many hobbies, loves reading, knitting, walking etc. and is not very tidy by nature.  The younger one is really fastidious and almost suffers OCD.    When the girls shared a bedroom as children, there were many tears and tantrums from the younger one because the elder was so…

Cleaning Water – A Slow Process But So Worthwhile ?>

Cleaning Water – A Slow Process But So Worthwhile

The idea of cleansed water is not new.  The ancients from over 2000 years ago used a system of boiling water over a fire, leaving it out in the sun and then filtering through layers of sand.  Not far off from our system today.  Then we find the Egyptians had their own form of water filtration.  On the tomb walls of one ruler, there are pictures of sand purification of water and an icon of pitchers stacked neatly.   Of course,…

Villages Need Clean Halls And Watering Holes ?>

Villages Need Clean Halls And Watering Holes

Busy people in villages often overlook the essentials when it comes to running facilities like memorial halls and after school or church activities.  There’s often a great willingness to get the community together and do charitable and other good works, which is great, but the other essential tasks tend to get overlooked.  To put on any event where hall facilities are needed for refreshments, washrooms, classes etc, someone needs to be responsible for getting them cleaned and serviced on a…

We’re Wasting Water That Oz Deserately Needs

How topsy turvey our world is becoming.  All through our summer  we were watching how much water we used; trying not to water the lawn more than to save it dying completely.  Then there was the running litres of cold water into the washing up bowl whilst waiting for the hot to emerge when at the kitchen sink.  This infuriates me more than almost anything else about my house.  The boiler is only 2 metres away from the kitchen sink…

Global Warming, Ice Age Repeats ?>

Global Warming, Ice Age Repeats

There are many things about living in this very developed country that upset many young people. They are constantly suffering anxieties about global warming and the effect our lifestyle is having on the planet. Whenever it rains we are warmed of the consequences of too much rain. I do understand they have great concerns about changes to weather patterns and the rising sea levels which are affecting the polynesian nations particularly. There were planetary influences billions of years ago –…
