Subject: Re: Filtered or tap

Forum: Filtered or tap
Hey J!

I usually drink my water from the tap. I don't mind the taste so much. And I drink so called city water.

I remember growing up as a kiddo and having water from a well out in the country. It had the worst egg smell to it. But after awhile I just got used to it. Kind of gross to think about now.

I don't like to be wasteful, so I like hearing you use a refillable water bottle. More people need to do that. I get people want filtered water and not just tap water. But I bet a person could buy a water filter set up and actually save money over time versus buying plastic water bottles.

To those that buy plastic water bottles, please recycle!

I don't usually ever buy water bottles. I do when I go camping, but I also bring a giant water container too. The bottle are more for back up and ease. I do recycle those of course :)

I did a forum a while back about a city that had contaminated water and then they were told it was ok. At what time do we believe or disbelieve our water is safe to drink. It does make me scare that our city water is probably considered "safe enough". I don't necessarily like those words.

Forum: Are human lives more valuable than other animals?
Hey Kate!

I do not agree with killing that ape at all.

I'm not sure why humans think they can capture something from the wild or even save from the wild to rehabilitate, to only kill it late because of it's natural instincts.

I hate that.

It makes no sense to me whatsoever.

No judgement at all to the parents, I have a six year old that doesn't listen well. I could see her trying to reach inside an animal closer after being told no repeatedly.

Freak accidents happen. Remember the little boy in Florida at the Disneyland Resort. Once again, an animal using it's natural instincts. Another freak accident.

Freak accidents don't validate killing an animal. To me this was inhumane. And I thought zoos were supposed to serve a purpose and be human to all the animals. Obviously not.

Let the animals live like they are supposed to live. If we can't keep then in nature, then we need to let them be able to be as close to and live as close to them being in nature.

Thanks for letting me rant!! I could probably go on and on about this topic. But I will stop for now.

Subject: We all just want to have fun!

Forum: We all just want to have fun!
Times can be hard and money can be scarce.

But it’s human nature for us all to want to have some fun every now and then.

What do you do for fun that doesn't cost any money?

What are some fun things that you do when money is tight?

How do you stretch that dollar to have a good time?


I hope everyone has a fabulous day today!

Forum: What did you look like 20 years ago?
Hey Pulsar!

Twenty years ago, I was 15 years old. I was a sophomore in high school.

I was awkward. I wore clothes that were too big for me because I thought I was fat.

I had brown, wavy hair that was full and thick. It was sort of wild. It did it's own thing. It was long, down to the middle of my back.

I think I have evolved into more of a mature looking woman and way less awkward.

Forum: What Item Do You Need Replaced?
Hey Akihan!

I just mentioned in Dedee's forum that I could use a new dishwasher.

When my husband and I bought our house, it came with a brand new dishwasher. And for the last two years it has worked perfectly fine.

But for the last several months, the dishwasher has been making a horrific, high pitched, squealing noise. It sounds like bottle rockets going off, but without the huge bang at the end. When I listen to it, I actually anticipate the bang noise, but it doesn't happen.

The dishwasher seems to work just fine. The dishes come out clean and there isn't any other issues with the dishwasher. My husband says I cannot run it when we are not home, just in case something goes wrong

It would be nice to have a new one that I could run whenever I wanted and not worry about something exploding on the inside of it.

I have seen some fancy, yeah I think they are fancy, dishwashers that have the capability to just run the top rack or bottom rack by itself. No need to run a full dishwasher if only half of it is full.
