79 20% chance of storms and cloudy
I don't need rain today but judging by the clouds we will be getting some





TOTD: Water, do you drink the stuff?

Personally I think it needs something mixed with it like flavor and fizz!
Are you one of the naive ones that drink it bottled?
Is fluoride a gubmint plan to turn our brains into willing mush?
Wet say you?

Yes. Quite a lot, actually.

It's finally going to warm up here today but it will be windy.

TOTD: I never believed any of that 8 glasses of water a day stuff. It's obvious that somebody who isn't working hard can easily get all the water he or she needs out of coffee, tea, soft drinks, milk, and gravy (or whatever). The only time I have ever bought bottled water was for parties. I'm normally pretty suspicious about government additives but fluoride might be okay; especially if you don't drink too much water and stick to raw milk instead. :cool:

I reenact the miracle at Cana every day. I drink water all day, and around 6 pm it turns to.... wine. :)

I drink water quite a bit, need to drink more, but it's more than I use to when I was working. Depends on the day and how I feel, I'll throw a lemon in or make some tea and just drink it that way.

I wish I liked more wines.

Water, by the gallon full. We're on a well and the difference between city water and well water is quite distinct.

We could use some rain, the pastures are a tad dry and it's much to early in the year to supplement the feed.

Water is my primary drink. I will have a couple of cups of coffee or tea during the workday, but I don't drink soda, so unless it's an adult beverage, water is my primary choice for thirst. I don't buy bottled water, usually, although at times I will buy some for the office because it's easier for me to drink that, rather than constantly fill up the small cups that we have. For home use, it's just plain old tap water, generally no ice.

Mid 90s here today and all week long.

TOTD: I've been drinking more water than I had but am still doing 3 or 4 cokes per day which I REALLY want to stop doing!

I am very fond of water. I've been a big water drinker my whole life. When eating out I order water with lemon (and not because I am too cheap to pay two bucks for a glass of iced tea even if I do find that ridiculous).

Water. It's what's for dinner.

Ever since I saw a report on cross-contamination in restaurants relative to lemons I've tried to stay away from the lemon. I don't make a specific request not to have the lemon, I just don't ask for it. Unfortunately, most restaurants now add the lemon. :o

Yes. Quite a lot, actually.

Ditto. I consume at least a couple gallons a day. I'm a thirsty ape.

I drink 2 24oz bottles of water a day while at work. At home, more of a soda/iced tea kind of guy.

I had hernia surgery a coupla weeks ago. Surgeon remarked that I was dehydrated. Said he open me up and nothing happened.:confused:

Ever since he made that comment I've been trying to take in a bit more water. Trouble is, I'm just not thirsty and I don't like water.

Flavoring it helps a lot. But it's a chore for me.

buy some lemons or limes and throw them in a pitcher with the water, or make some ice tea but don't sweeten it at all, if you don't want the caffeine use herbal teas

I drink a lot of water. I have to drink bottled or R/O water.
Just ask TxRadio about our hometown water supply. Bleah....
It comes from a putrid man made lake that shouldn't even
be on the planet in this area. A coffee pot or a hot water
heater only lasts about a year or two here, then it's so
clogged up with mineral deposit you have to replace it.

Now the town I'm originally from 67 miles west of here,
gets it's water supply from natural ground water wells.
Best tasting water in the state that is.

It was only 97 here today. A chill in the air compared
to the last week. We actually even had a few clouds in
the sky and about a 10% chance of rain.

Yeah. Those are good ideas. Helps a little. Except those herbal teas don't taste like much to me.

During the winter I drink hot water & honey. It makes kind of a pleasant tea, but obviously I wasn't drinking enough of it. I think I'm doomed to be forever dehydrated. Doc told me I won't pass but one kidney stone before I see the light.:)

find some GOOD tea, at a specialty store or oriental grocery store, Lipton is crap for tea, find some strong flavors that you like and use that, or use multiple bags.

Try some of this stuff too http://www.truelemon.com/ you can get it at Walmart, they use to have it at GFC but haven't seen it recently

We need rain here badly. My grass is turning yellow in spots so I will turn on the sprinkler this pm.

TOTD: Baton Rouge has some of the best well water in the US. Used to drink it on the golf course but now milk and root-beer is my choice of drinks.
