i dont know if i can do it


this is my yeti cup that i drink my water from
right now i drink filtered water from the faucet
soon though i might have to change that

now the ultimate water we ever had was when we lived at the country n
we drank rainwater
the ultimate water

the rainwater ran though two sediment filers
one smaller one and one real large
then it went though a large carbon filter
then it passed through a ultraviolet filter which sterilized it

it didnt really have a taste like our present water does
nor did it have a smell

it was just well unless you have drank it before you dont know what its like to drink
i guess you could drink it as it falls from the sky like you do a snowflake on your tongue

washing dishes and washing clothes and showering and shampooing your hair
its the ultimate water to use

the same for drinking rainwater

we are stuck with bottled water or filtered water
we compromise for convenience and cost
we drink filtered water from the tap

now califonnia made it ok to use toilet water and the local water folks are going to reuse toilet water to add to the drinking water
you mean theyre going to dilute it out some so it wont taste bad
doesnt sound good to me

the only other state to do this is colorado
is this a liberal or blue thing to do 

california is generally drought city
water is precious
wastewater has been used for a long time
just not as drinking water

some resorts use it to make snow
you mean like dirty snow
ill never eat snow again
farmers even use it on their crops
does that mean their crops are organic since they use wastewater
like we use chicken manure and steer manure in our gardens

i thnk of all the things i have dumped in a toilet 
no pun there
over the years
i admit i dont dump any extra stuff down there anymore

then think of what folks put in there
clorox vinegar draino medications vitamins drugs 
well you name it its dumped down there

im not sure they can really get all that stuff out of there before it reaches my faucet

here is an article on all this
dont take my word for it
read and decide if you want to drink this toilet water

here locally 
they probably will do this 
they also get some water from the ocean from desalination
just think what gets dumped in the ocean sewage oil chemicals you name it
they get water from two reservoirs
they get water from wells
they if they need it can get water from the states canals system
which they dont usually have to access

what i dont understand is why they dont mandate more rainwater collection in this state
in our community garden we have 420 gallons of water we collect off our sheds
thats over 430 gallons that would end up in the ocean
what if more folks did that
then figured out how to make it drinkable

i guess though what will happen is we will end up with toilet water mixed in with all our other water

i guess thats progress

i might have to start drinking richards rainwater
