Blog Action Day 2010

Water is a global issue, deserving a global conversation. Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15. The idea is for everyone to talk about the same topic on the same day to increase world awareness about that topic. This year the topic is WATER.

In just one day, more than 200 million hours of women’s time is consumed for the most basic of human needs — collecting water for domestic use.
This lost productivity is greater than the combined number of hours worked in a week by employees at Wal*Mart, United Parcel Service, McDonald’s, IBM, Target, and Kroge.

Maybe you think this is gross, but after my 3-4 cups of coffee in the morning I have to go to the bathroom about 3 or 4 times in two hours. If I don't flush until after noon, I could save wasting a lot of water.
My dad used to recommended
"If it is yellow - let it mellow.
If it is brown - flush it down"

He had 11 children.

water is very important because if we didnt have it then we could die. If any human went 4 days without water, then they will die. So always drink water no matter what.
i like water even though it has no flavor. I'd rather drink water than drink milk with an italian meal. Now that's interesting! : = )
