Saturday Surprise

We got slammed with storms last night and about 20 gallons of water came in by one of the basement windows. Really glad all of my big tools are on castors.

Clearly Canadian

My friend Casey was pretty jazzed when it was announced Clearly Canadian was coming back in the US. I don’t remember ever drinking the stuff, but when he was getting some from World Market in East Lansing yesterday, I picked up 12 for myself. I’ve tried the Mountain Blackberry and the Black Cherry and both are quite tasty. They don’t have that odd taste you get with a lot of sparkling waters.

The Problem of Overhydration

The reality is you don’t need to be told when and how much to drink. We have a 300 million year developed system that tells you with exquisite accuracy how much you need to drink and when you need to drink. It’s called thirst. If you rely on thirst you won’t ever become dehydrated, and you won’t also ever become overhydrated.

People try to complicate the body and it’s processes, when it does a hell of a good job on it’s own. We haven’t evolved this far with bodies that don’t know how to regulate.
