Dividing & Consquering Messy Sisterhood ?>

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

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

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 –…

Broken Dam Causes Serious Water Loss ?>

Broken Dam Causes Serious Water Loss

In previous years it has been a problem when water has run short due to reservoirs not being kept topped up to maximum levels. We’ve been having hotter and drier summers for the last few years and it is obvious with global warming that this is an ongoing feature. Much work has been going on in the background to ensure our reservoirs and public water supplies are improved and can cope with everything the elements throw at us. It was…

Sufficient Water Here, Despite Extreme Weather ?>

Sufficient Water Here, Despite Extreme Weather

The very strange weather of the last few years has now started to form a rather interesting pattern. Very very wet seasons with localised flooding, followed by extremely hot months with no rain for weeks. We have to eventually refrain from wasting water and over consumption. When we think of really awful winters of 1947 and 192/1963 tragically terrible with blizzards throughout the USA, Canada and UK – eventually reaching Europe with devastating consequences. The months of heavy snow fall…

Contracting Helps Maintain Water Cooler Supplies

My word it has been jolly cold, wet and miserable of late. We were forecast a damp spring and it has lived up to that in every sense of the word. This time last year we were beginning to realise it might just be a record summer – for quite the opposite reason There wasn’t enough water to go round. The reservoirs were ok for first few weeks of the longest hottest period since records began over here. So water…

Futuristic Water Cooler Spotted In 1966 TV Show

I was very happily watching an old Avengers episode the other day – one filmed btweeen 1964 and 1967, so around 1966. That in itself is not the news . . . . what I noticed in the ‘London’ headquarters of a fantastic global ‘money market’ was a water cooler bottle on a plumbed in platform. How about that! I had watched that episode hundreds of times in the last two years and never noticed that feature before. It must…

Professional Company Needed For Real Spring Clean

We really have had some amazingly awful weather this winter. The same as the previous one actually. It makes the job of keeping everywhere clean and tidy so much more of a challenge. Just when we think the worst of the blustery weather has departed, it comes rushing back. Not only does it batter the fences and bins etc. it rips leaves off the shrubs – they’re not supposed to shed foliage, it’s meant to be growth time. The mess…
