july 28 2016
WATER....A VERY LONG TIME AGO.... I CAN REMEMBER --- IN A CONVERSATION ABOUT PEPSI BUYING A PROPERTY  IN LYNNFIELD THAT HAD A NATURAL SPRING ON IT.... I SAID  "I CAN'T SEE SPENDNNG MONEY ON GAS TO SHIP WATER AROUND....
THAT HAS TO BE ONE OF THE WRONGEST STATEMENTS ANYONE HAS EVER MADE..  
OF ALL THE THINGS THAT SCARE ME... DROUGHT IS CERTAINLY  HIGH ON MY LIST.  IT IS ONE COMMENT I MADE ABOUT BUYING THIS PROPERTY-- THERE WERE /ARE  2 LOTS - MY HUSBAND 'S WAS THE HOUSE LOT  #37  .. AND MINE WAS "THE REST "  #45   WHICH HAD  A PERMANENT RIGHT OF WAY TO THE POND ACROSS THE STREET.  I NOTICED THAT WATER SUPPLY.....

WATER IS  NOT GIVEN THE CREDIT FOR WHAT IT IS...  
I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A SITUATION OF TOO MUCH WATER--- EVEN WITH 3 FEET OF IT IN THE BASEMENT IN LYNNFIELD... IT WAS ONLY AN INCONVENIENCE--- A LITTLE DAWN, A LITTLE CHLOROX, AND IT WENT AWAY... 
NOW-- SURROUNDED BY FOREST  THAT COULD STAND A GOOD DRINK OF WATER, I AM THRILLED TO HEAR IT IS EXPECTED TO RAIN HEAVILY TOMORROW...
MY REAL CONCERN  IS-- YESTERDAY THE IPSWICH TOWN BASEBALL FIELD SPONTANEOUSLY CAUGHT FIRE.
OUR LUSH GRASS CRUNCHES WHEN YOU WALK ON IT.

 I COULD CALL THIS " MY LIFE WITH WATER".. 

IN SPAIN- IN COLLEGE- BRUSHING M Y TEETH IN THE MORNING WITH RED WINE LOST IT'S CHARM AND MADE ME  START CARRYING WATER AROUND WITH ME...50 YEARS I STILL HAVE THAT INSTINCT.  AS WITNESSED....

IN ?1970 ISH   --- WHEN OUR HOUSE BURNED TO THE GROUND IN LYNNFIELD ONE NEW YEARS EVE,  I HAD ABOUT15 HORSES IN THE BARN...AND IMMEDIATELY , HAD NO WATER... WITHIN ABOUT 4 HOURS-   I NEEDED  TO WATER THOSE 15 HORSES- THE FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS STILL THERE SPRAYING THE  SMOULDERING RUINS AND FILLED A BIG TANK WITH WATER WHICH LASTED 24 HOURS. AND I WAS ON MY OWN.  I HAD A SMALL PICK UP AND GOT A PLASTIC  55 GALLON DRUM WHICH I COULD FILL AT  VARIOUS NEIGHBORS..-- REMEMBER I SAID THIS WAS A NEW YEARS EVE FIRE?  WELL YOU DON'T FILL A 55 GALLON DRUN IN THE BACK OF A PICK UP AHEAD OF TIME SO THAT YOU CAN WATER IN THE MORNING-- BECAUSE  I WAS FACED  WITH A 55 GALLON BLOCK OF ICE  THAT SPLIT THE PLASTIC DRUM AND THEN JUST SLID AROUND THE BACK OF THE TRUCK WHEN I DROVE.-- KNOWING  THAT IT WOULD BE VALUABLE IF IT THAWED,I CARRIED IT AROUND FOR A FEW DAYS  BEING CAREFUL NOT TO SLAM ON THE BRAKES,  BEFORE  I TRIED TO LAND IT IN AN INFLATED SWIMMING POOL.   I HAD ALREADY GONE TO NEW PLASTIC TRASH CANS--  A FEW OF THOSE AND THIS BLOCK OF ICE  WERE ANOTHER PROBLEM... WATER IS HEAVY.

FINALLY WE DID UNCOVER WHERE THE TOWN WATER ENTERED THE HOUSE AND COULD HOOK A HOSE.. WHICH WORKED ONCE-- REMEMBER.. JANUARY WEATHER--  EVEN THE 100 FEET OF HEAT TAPE DID NOT KEEP IT RUNNING- ...UNTIL I REALIZED  THE MANURE PILE  IS WARM.    SO I COVERED THE HOSE WITH 18 INCHES OF  MANURE, AND WITH A TINY DRIP,  IT RAN WELL FOR THE REST OF THE WINTER.  EVEN WHEN WE LOST ELECTRICITY FOR THE HEAT TAPE..  

THE CONCEPT  OF WATER RUNNING THRU A  HOSE OR PIPE   IS ONE OF THE GREATEST INVENTIONS OF TEH WORLD AND NOT GIVEN ENOUGH CREDIT..

JUST THINK YOU'D LOOK DARN FOOLISH STANDING IN A WHITE TUB WITH NO CLOTHES ON POURING SHAMPOO ON YOUR HEAD IF THERE WAS NO LITTLE PIPE CONNECTED TO THE VERY BASIC  PART OF ALL NATURE.  BEEN THERE , DONE THAT.

HERE IN IPSWICH  THERE WAS NO TOWN WATER FOR  MANY   YEARS...  WE DO HAVE A 500 FOOT DEEP , PLENTIFUL  WELL- THAT IS PERFECTLY GOOD TO DRINK... PROBLEM IS, IT IS BECUSE OF THE MINERALS CONTENT   IT IS BROWN AND   IT SMELLS  AWFUL LIKE  A BUNCH OF DEAD FISH.  THE ANIMALS HAD NO PROBLEM DRINKING IT..THANKFULLY...  BUT I WAS ON BOTTLED WATER LONG AGO.

IT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ONLY COMPLAINT WE HAVE EVER HAD WITH  THE SPCA---  THEY ARRIVED ( OR MAYBE IT WAS THE USDA)  AND CITED ME FOR NOT SCRUBBING OUT THE HORSES  WATER BUCKETS WHICH WERE STAINED BROWN....... UNTIL I ACTUALLY SHOWED THEM TEH INSIDE OF MY DISHWASHER--- SAME  BROWN...   THEY WENT AWAY...

BEING  CONNECTED TO A WELL MEANS ALSO THAT  YOU ARE DEPENDENT ON ELECTRICITY O PUMP THE WATER  UP AND OUT..   SO WHEN THE ELECTRICITY WENT OFF, WE WOULD , WITH THE SLIGHT PRESSURE STILL LEFT INT HE TANK,  FILL A BUNCH OF 5 GALLON PLASTIC PAILS.. BECAUSE ...  TOILETS FLUSH WITH WATER..  IN IPSWICH-- GIVEN  THE POND ACROSS TTHE STREET, A CAR THAT RAN, AND ENOUGH BUCKETS, WE KEPT HORSES WATERED AND TOILETS FLUSHED-- AND DID NOT HAVE TO GO TO THE GYM FOR EXERCISE.

I COULD GO ON  AND ON--- BUT I WILL SPARE YOU

TAKE MY WORD FOR IT  WHEN YOU NEED WATER .. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE.
( I AM WAITING FOR THE DAY THEY RUN A PIPE FROM THE GREAT LAKES TO CALIFORNIA -  ABSURD?  REMEMBER-- THEY PIPE GAS FURTHER -  AND WE ARE THE  "THEY"

Subject: Guest Post contribution on www.servicedogproject.org
My name is Amber  and I am freelance journalist and writer. I was on the hunt on information on dog and diseases when I came across www.servicedogproject.org
I’d love to be a guest post contributor if your website allows it, as I'm looking to boost up my portfolio of work with more recent publications within the pet and animal care field.  I also recently finished an infographic about pets and Swimming: Pool   that might be a good fit for your website.

my answer
thanks for the offer... but...........
there are soooo many writers doing research writing stuff about dogs... which to me is backwards..
if you have 50 years managing hundreds of dogs, then maybe we could talk..
but if you don't, you are just promoting  other written material, which sometime s i find out is 180 degrees wrong.
right -- wrong ---or indifferent,--- the stuff on our web is mine. 75 years and counting.
