Troubling Water – Life or Deathūüí¶

 

Water is the driving force of all nature – Leonardi Da Vinciūüí¶

There was an article in my favorite health magazine called ‘Nature and Health’.

The article started off with a question “Is your water an elixir or a dangerous drink” and I believe that to be an important question.

I sadly have to say there is a number of friends and acquaintances around me that have the dreaded disease cancer. My first question as anyone who knows me is are you drinking enough water. 9 times out of 10 they will say “probably not” or yes I drink at least 4 or 5 glasses a day. Sorry not enough. If your body is not flushing your toxins from your body then your body holds on to them. That is not good when you have such a destructive disease running around your body.

Tap water

Aluminum, sulfate, ammonia, chlorine, hydrofluorosilicic acid, polyacrylamide, rust, slime, algae, asbestos, detergents, petrol, pesticides, pharmaceutical medications, faecal matter, herbicides, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, chloroform, copper, mercury, nitrates, cryptosporidium, Guardia, viruses, bacteria, blue-green algae.

Yep most and more ¬†chemicals will be found in your ¬†tap water. No Kidding. So many chemicals I can’t even pronounce their name.

In fact Western Australia Water Corporation recommends that babies under three months do not consume their water due to high nitrate content.

The ABC confirmed that PFAs (polufluoroalkyl chemicals) have not been banned in Australia. This is used to create non stick cookware and fire fighting foam. This chemical has been found in over 70 sites in Australia and as far as they know. Over 6 million Americans are drinking water that contains PFAs above the EPA after level.

This chemical is linked to immune system suppression, cancer, brain damage, nervous system damage, fertility problems and hormone disruption.

Look I could go on and on but you need to read this article for yourself it is very enlightening and I think you really need to think twice about what you are drinking.

Bottled Water

Every minute a million bottles of water are bought world-wide.

Not only is that an environmental nightmare most bottled water does not match the labels and 93% of samples analyzed showed micro plastic contamination researched by Natural resources defense council 

Some of the contaminates in bottled water is phthalates, mould, microbes, benzene, trihalomethane and arsenic .

Brita water filters are ok especially if you are unable to carry your own water on flights. Its better than nothing but does not remove the chemicals completely.

This is where I am putting a word in about the Kangen Water it really is the best you can buy. 40-year-old company and a product that is unsurpassable.

It is medically registered water restructuring system and as they say Gold Standard pure water. Kangen filters remove all the impurities and then alkalize the water plus give it negative charge so it can pass through our positively Рcharged cellular aquaporin and make the water molecules minuscule for  ultimate absorption. Great for hydration and optimizing nutrient assimilation and eliminating toxins.

Cancers cannot survive in an alkaline environment and Kangen water is considered an anti cancer aid.

Wether or not you consider this machine it is up to you but I have made you aware of what you are drinking in your tap and bottled water and urge you for your health and the health of your family and the environment to consider this machine. I own two, one in the States and one in Australia and they are worth every cent.

2. THE MASTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT

Interesting stuff… makes it unique

The Masters

In 1934 Bobby Jones requested the USGA to host the US Open at Augusta. USGA said no.

Angry at the rebuff. Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts decided to have there own event, which

became the Masters. The Masters is not a Championship of anything.

“You are the winner of the Masters”.

 

The Masters is one of the most unusual events in sports.

It’s all about tradition, and it’s defined by a set of odd rules and customs that just don’t exist outside of Augusta National. It’s great.

We compiled the oddest traditions that make the Masters and Augusta one of a kind.

Food prices are ridiculously low.

 

Tipping is banned.

 

Cell phones are prohibited at all times and cameras are not permitted during the tournament.

It’s one of the only places in the U.S. where there are long lines for pay phones.

 

There’s a huge fence around the course to keep out animals. There¬†has been one deer sighting in the last 65 years.

 

Only four minutes of commercials per hour are allowed during the broadcast and no blimps are allowed.

 

TV commentators are not allowed to refer to fans as “fans” or “spectators” They are to be called “patrons,” and the rough is to be referred to as the “second cut.”

 

The Masters banned CBS broadcaster Gary McCord in 1995 for saying,¬†“They don’t cut the greens here at Augusta, they use bikini wax.”

 

 

Players had to use local caddies provided by Augusta until 1983.

 

Players are allowed to use their own caddies now, but they have to¬†wear the Augusta uniform ‚ÄĒ green hat, white jumpsuit.

Like many golf courses, there is good fishing at Augusta National,¬†but the players don’t like to talk about it because it is forbidden.

In 2011, Monte Burke of Forbes interviewed golfers about the best 
fishing spots on the PGA Tour
.

When Augusta was brought up, he described their responses as¬†“squeamish” and they only admitted to hearing there were some¬†good spots.

A former caddie was willing to tell Burke that the best spots are¬†the creek in front of the 12th hole (“full of bream”; seen above)and the pond at the 16th hole (“brimming with bass”).

Fans, oops, we mean patrons,¬† aren’t allowed to wear their hats¬†backwards.

 

Patrons can bring collapsible chairs to sit on, but those chairs are not allowed to have armrests.

 

Running is not allowed, unless you are a player.

 

There is a house located in the middle of the Augusta National parking lot because the owners refuse to sell it. The family has reportedly turned down “millions.”

 

 

You can’t apply to become a member at Augusta.

 

It’s nearly impossible to become a member at Augusta. You have to be¬†nominated¬†¬†by a current Augusta member, and new¬† initiations generally¬†aren’t accepted unless¬†¬†someone quits or dies. The total membership¬†hovers around 300.

 

Augusta is closed in the summer to keep the course in pristine shape.

 

Players are given a brand new Mercedes for use during the week.

 

Golf cart drivers who are hired to drive the players around Augusta National also pick up the golfers at the airport in the Mercedes they will be using. The cars also have a number in the back window so that employees can always identify the players by which car they are in.

 

You can go to jail for selling tickets.

 

Twenty-four people were arrested outside Augusta in 2012 for trying to scalp tickets.

The course is insane about who it lets into the tournament and it’s¬†illegal to sell tickets within 2,700 feet of the gates.

 

You can only ask for autographs in one part of the course.

 

Fans always line the ropes at big tournaments in hopes of getting a signature. But this is tougher to do at Augusta.

You can only try and solicit an autograph on the Washington Road side of the clubhouse, near the practice facilities.

The bunkers at Augusta are filled with mining waste.

 

 

 

You know those pristine white bunkers?

They’re actually¬†¬†composed of waste product from the mining of aluminum,¬†according to¬†Golf.com

Basically, there’s this company that mines feldspar (rocks) for aluminum.

This process produces waste in the form of really bright, pure quartz ‚ÄĒ

that’s what Augusta uses..

The course used cows as lawnmowers in the 1940s.

A close-up picture of the fairways at Augusta .

 

Augusta is its own universe with a tenuous connection to the outside world

But WWII affected Augusta just like it did the rest of the country.

During¬†¬†the war,¬†Augusta didn’t have the manpower to maintain the

course, so they set 200 cattle loose on the grounds in hopes that they¬†would “trim”¬†¬†the grass by eating it.

Did You Know – 01/04/2016

Two-Horses-Asses.jpg

  1. The Origins of engineering specs and government decisions.Ever wonder where engineering specifications come from? The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches, an exceedingly odd number.¬†Why was that gauge used? Because that’s the way they built them in England, and the English built the first US railroads.¬†

    Why did the English build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that is the gauge they used. 

    Why did they use that particular gauge then? Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they used for building wagons, which used the same wheel spacing. 

    Okay! Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing? 

    Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break on the old, long distance roads in England, because that’s the spacing of the wheel ruts in the granite sets.¬†

    So, who built those old rutted roads? Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (and England) for their legions. The roads have been used ever since. 

    And the ruts in the roads? Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else chose to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels. Since the chariots were made for (or by) Imperial Rome, they all had the same wheel spacing. 

    The United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the specification for an Imperial Roman war chariot. 

    Specifications and Bureaucracies live forever. The Imperial man of war chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the back ends of two war-horses. 

    Now let’s cut to the present…¬†

    The Space Shuttle, sitting on its launch pad, has two booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRB’s. Thiokol builds SRB’s at its factory in Utah. The engineers who designed the SRB’s wanted to make them a bit fatter, but the SRB’s had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site.¬†

    The railroad line from the factory has to run through a tunnel in the mountains. The SRB’s had to fit through that tunnel, which is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track is about as wide as two horses’ behinds.¬†

    So…. a major design feature of what is arguably the world’s most advanced transportation system was determined two thousand years ago by a horse’s ass.¬†

    Which is pretty much how most government decisions are still made today.

3.¬†¬†Almost no one uses real tin foil these days. The stuff we all call ‚Äútin foil‚ÄĚ is actually aluminium foil. Originally foil was made of tin but it gave (not surprisingly) a tin flavor to whatever it touched. It was heavier than modern aluminium foil, which has its benefits but not enough to keep it going strong in our kitchens. Aluminium foil began to surpass tin foil after World War II but it had been available since 1910 when it was first produced by ‚ÄúDr. Lauber, Neher & Cie.‚ÄĚ a Swiss company using the force of a waterfall to drive the foil making machinery. Its first use in the US was as a wrapper on Life Savers candy in 1913.

Interesting Fact: Tin foil was used to fill cavities in teeth before the 20th century. Gross because have you ever  had Aluminum foil touch your teeth?

4.¬†That most of the gold held in reserve in the United States of America is stored at Fort Knox right? Actually, it isn‚Äôt. In reality, most of the gold in the US is stored at the Federal Reserve Vault at Wall Street in New York. Another interesting fact is that most of that gold doesn‚Äôt even belong to the US ‚Äď it belongs to foreign accounts! Given the state of the US dollar at the moment maybe the US government should nationalize it all in what would probably be the largest gold theft in history!

5.¬†Gandhi was not always the peaceful man he is well-known for being ‚Äď in fact, he was never a pure pacifist in that he allowed for violence as a last resort. In his middle ages he volunteered to fight in three wars: The Boer War, The Zulu War, and World War I. Furthermore, after an attack by Muslims on Hindus he approved of the government‚Äôs order to shoot ten Muslims for every Hindu that was killed. In a famous statement about independence, Gandhi said: ‚ÄúIf a fight is inevitable I would expect every son of the soil to contribute his mite‚Ķ I would not flinch from sacrificing a million lives for India‚Äôs liberty.‚ÄĚ [Source]

Interesting Fact: During the freedom struggle, he wore nothing but a loin cloth, but for years he lived in London and used to wear a silk hat and spats and carried a cane (as seen above).

1. Hang onions in cut-up tights or old stockings to make them last for months!

15

2. Create a thrifty watering can by puncturing holes in the top of a used milk bottle.

19

3. Cover paint trays with aluminum foil to make cleaning up afterwards a breeze. Now this is a good one especially for people like me that gets paint everywhere and I hate cleaning those trays.

24

4. Water straight from the tap becomes cloudy when frozen. To make ice cubes crystal clear, allow a kettle of boiled water to cool slightly and use this to fill your ice-cube trays.

25

5. Use a large muffin tin to cook stuffed peppers in the oven – it will help keep them upright.

27

6. To prevent potatoes budding, add an apple in the bag. New to me and a good one.

Another Aussie Joke

I know, exposing my funny side this morning. oh and by the way a ‘Tinnie is an aluminum boat’.

 

 

Joke

Mike goes to a boat and camping show in the big smoke and wins a tinnie.

ATT11

He brought it home and his wife looks at him and says,

“What you gonna do with that. There’s no water to¬†Float a boat within 160 Klms of here.”

He says, “I won it and I’m gonna keep it.”

His brother came over to visit several days later. He sees
The wife and asks where his brother is.

She says, “He’s out there in his tinnie”,
Pointing to the paddock behind the house.

The brother heads out behind the house and sees his Brother in the middle of a dry paddock sitting in the
Tinnie with a fishing rod in his hand ..
He yells out to him, “What are you doing?”

His brother replies, “I’m fishing. What the hell does it look like I’m a doing?”

His brother yells, “It’s people like you that give us people from the country¬†a bad name, making everybody think we’re stupid.

If¬†I could swim, I’d come out there and kick your arse!”
