Here to serve; them...


Politicians stay in power, by telling us what we want to hear, but doing what keeps them in office. In 1981 and today, that means giving constituents more of what they want while claiming they are in favor of cutting those other people's programs. It never happens, because those other people - are constituents of other politicians. You see, we the people are here to serve - them.

TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Easy Tips to Stay Hydrated

We all know that water is essential to the human body. Yet, many of us fail to drink it. We fail to drink enough of it, often enough. According the Department of Environmental Quality, the average adult needs to replace 10 cups (80 ounces) of water per day for their body's normal processes. This figure can more than double if the person is very active with strenuous activities and perspiring heavily. Let's take a look at some tips to help correct the problem of not drinking enough water in an enjoyable way.

1. Drink a water that has a taste and flavor that you enjoy. If you don't enjoy the taste, you will not drink it easily. Try out several varieties of water, bottled water, tap water, spring water, and purified water (bottled, tap, or both) to find one that is preferable. Some tap waters taste like chlorine and will need a purification system. Other waters can tasty salty, sandy, or tinny or smell like rotten eggs. If you don't want to invest in a purification system, taste several varieties of the bottled water. Most areas have refill stations in grocery chains that refill small and large bottles with purified water. The most natural water that can be consumed is spring water; this can be found in a bottle or if you have a well being fed by a spring that your household water is coming from. Just read your labels to know what you are drinking.

2. Make sure that the water is clean. Take a sample of your favorite waters to a place in your area that will test the water quality for impurities for free. Most areas have places willing to do this. Spring waters will have a higher mineral content which is usually fine for health. Impurities like lead are very harmful. The optimum water PH for health and healing of your body will be 7.5. It is perfectly acceptable to have the spring or bottled water that you are using checked too. It would be a wise decision to mark it on your calendar to have your water tested yearly so that you can make sure what you are putting into your body is safe. I have brought samples of my well water, tap water, and bottled water in depending on where I have lived to have them checked. It is wise to check what you are drinking out when it is available for free.
