WATER IS THE KEY TO SURVIVAL
As the world keeps turning, the days go faster. I can’t believe its Sunday, where did the week go! They say if you love what you are doing, time flies by. In Dan and my case, it’s going too fast and we are retired. Keeping healthy is a full-time job.
With blogging, researching, listening to Joel, reading spiritual messages, doing swing exercise, walking up to three miles a day, cleaning, cooking, going to doctors visits, ordering on line food and making time to just relax the day is over.
Since its Sunday give yourself a break, make a concerted effort to do something fun. Watch your favorite movie, cook your favorite dish, or read a good book that you have no time to read during the weekdays. Do whatever makes you happy and you’ll see the great golden clasp in life is the impact that doing what you like will make on your happiness.
This week I have been writing about pollution in our water system. So, today I’m just going to recap my topics of the week in one blog. My eyes were open wide as I researched, I couldn’t believe what has been going on. It was a little scary to face for we drink, bathe and use for our plants and pets. Water is something that we all have to have to survive and its being polluted with many chemicals. Water molecules have unusual chemical and physical properties. Water can exist in all three states of matter at the same time: liquid, gas, and solid.
Imagine that you’re sitting in your hot tub (filled with liquid water) watching the steam (gas) rise from the surface as you enjoy a cold drink from a glass filled with ice (solid) cubes. Very few other chemical substances can exist in all these physical states in this close of a temperature range.
Water has many unusual properties because of its polar covalent bonds. Oxygen has a larger electronegativity than hydrogen, so the electron pairs are pulled in closer to the oxygen atom, giving it a partial negative charge. Subsequently, both of the hydrogen atoms take on a partial positive charge. The partial charges on the atoms created by the polar covalent bonds in water are shown in the following figure.

Good morning Sunshine 🌞 Once the Bear's hug has got you it's apt to be forever keeps 💗 have a fantastic 💓 Sunday.
In the solid state, the particles of matter are usually much closer together than they are in the liquid state. So, if you put a solid into its corresponding liquid, it sinks. But this is not true of water. Its solid state is less dense than its liquid state, so it floats.
Water’s boiling point is unusually high. Other compounds similar in weight to water have a much lower boiling point.
Another unique property of water is its ability to dissolve a large variety of chemical substances. It dissolves salts and other ionic compounds, as well as polar covalent compounds such as alcohols and organic acids.
Water is sometimes called the universal solvent because it can dissolve so many things. It can also absorb a large amount of heat, which allows large bodies of water to help moderate the temperature on earth.
Water is a dipole and acts like a magnet, with the oxygen end having a negative charge and the hydrogen end having a positive charge. These charged ends can attract other water molecules. This attraction between the molecules is an intermolecular force (force between different molecules).
For me, being green means cleaning up the water. Water is the key. Start with water. You can't ignore the fact that nearly 80% of US waterways are potentially poisoned - benzene, solvents, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals.
WE NEVER KNOW THE WORTH OF WATER TILL THE WELL IS DRY
BY MEANS OF WATER, WE GIVE LIFE TO EVERYTHING

In order to arrive at knowledge of the motions of birds in the air, it is first necessary to acquire knowledge of the winds, which we will prove by the motions of water in itself, and this knowledge will be a step enabling us to arrive at the knowledge of beings that fly between the air and the wind. Leonardo da Vinci
We all need to take part in changing the way we think about our environment, you can make the first step. Even if it’s a baby step many more will follow to make the next generation a better one.
Until tomorrow, the water in a vessel is sparkling; the water in the sea is dark. The small truth has words which are clear; the great truth has great silence. Rabindranath Tagor
Next week, the topic is on how we can protect our selves in our homes with water systems that takes out the chemicals in our water.
