    In vino, veritas.

    Been a saying since Roman times.

    Wine is fine, but its no substitute for good old water.

    BTW,

    "...have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. Coli) - Bacteria found in feces."

    This is BS. Literally. This is the kind of stuff people read, even in jest, and then its brought up later and folks say, "there's all kinds of e. coli in our drinking water!"

    One liter of water weighs 1 kilogram. If your water has one kilogram of e. coli bacteria in every 365 kilograms, you're drinking some pretty incredibly contaminated water. Shitty water. Pun intended.

    Bacteria is why you have chlorine in yoru water. Chlorine kills bacteria.

    The EPA requires muinicipal water districts to monitor their water and there can be NO evidence of ANY colliforms in the water. None. Otherwise, it is by definition "contaminated" and they have to notify their consumers.

    According to EPA regulations, a system that operates at least 60 days per year, and serves 25 people or more or has 15 or more service connections, is regulated as a public water system under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

    Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, EPA requires public water systems to monitor for coliform bacteria.

    The largest public water systems (serving millions of people) must take at least 480 samples per month. Smaller systems must take at least five samples a month.

    Systems serving 25 to 1,000 people typically take one sample per month.

    I'm no connoisseur, but a nice glass of Zinfandel sounds good right now. The red stuff, not the cheesy pink stuff.

    Our state and local water company said we do not have bacteria in our water. We have low chlorine even though the meter said it was high on three different occasions. When we could smell chlorine we were told that means it's "low".

    We had a nice filter system but we were still getting sick. A glass of wine would calm the stomach down. Now we put in a UV light to kill the bacteria, even though we do not have any. Once the UV light was in, no more stomach problems.

    Just for medical uses we put in 99 grape vines to make some "juice". This year will be the first picking. Just for medical uses only. Have you ever tasted Asian Pear, Winesap apple, Shiro Pear and grape "vino"? Just for medical uses. Our new hobby. Michael
