How To Test Your Water Quality

Hubby ordered the Backyard BBQ Burger with all the trimmings. It came with french fries. He also ordered the Battered Fried Mushrooms as an appetizer.

Steep prices. The food at Bryce’s Cafeteria in Texarkana, Texas seems to compare to some of the other popular cafeterias, but the prices seem a bit higher. You can expect to pay around for food and drink when you eat here, depending on what you eat. Be careful with your choices because Bryce’s charges by the items, and you will have little guidance with the prices. Remember, each item costs.

The way the test kit works is very simple. A small spring-action device pricks the little finger. A few drops of blood are placed on the test paper. The sample is sent in an envelope to a lab where the results will be determined. Results are often received over the phone. The privacy is secured with a password. This password is only known by the patient and the lab to ensure confidentiality. You do not have to supply the lab with your name or address. You are provided with a PIN number with your kit that you will use to identify yourself.

Some local laws now require people who receive a positive AIDS or HIV test result to report the finding to the local health department. Although such local laws have been rejected at a federal level, people still crave the confidentiality. It can be frightening enough to be worried about the results. This scary feeling is only increased exponentially when you take into consideration that your personal health information may be shared with the health department.

Whenever I pull up to my local Taco Bell, a sense of reverse political correctness kicks in. I find myself pronouncing Taco Bell menu items with a Spanish language accent learned during my sophomore year in high school. I attended a tiny school smack in the middle of a cornfield where it was always so windy that 90% of everything you learned in class blew right out of your head the minute you stepped outside. And since I ran track, the wind effects were only increased, and i lost 110% of everything I supposedly learned at that school. I think I had to have a secret operation just to remember my name. But maybe that was just a visit to the dentist. I tend to confuse these things.

Good! So, how do we even the trade playing field and protect ourselves? Consider this, (it came from an accountant friend): If 20 million Americans took a pass on buying just worth of Chinese-made goods, we’d actually reverse the trade deficit. To put it another way, we’d have a trade surplus with the chinese.

Agitate the water gently, until the light tells you it’s done. UV purifiers don’t work in murky water, so if that’s the only water you have, you’ll have to pre-filter it until it’s not cloudy. You also need to make sure you don’t drop an UV device.

The numb feeling somehow catapulted from no feelings to extreme over emotion. Every emotion humanly possible ran through my veins like lightening. When I was happy, I was overjoyed to the extent of hysterical laughter. A simple scrape or bump on my children would instill a fear in me so deep it is unimaginable. I recall a night when my youngest son was sick. I lay in his bed with my hand touching his chest to comfort myself. I knew he was alright, but it scared me so fiercely that I literally shook. I wondered if this feeling was only in my head until my son asked me to stop moving the bed. It was making sleep difficult.
