Happy World Water Day!

Water is a powerful element, causing both destruction while  facilitating life. If you  have regular access to clean drinking, count yourself lucky, because you are among the few in the world who can make that claim. To appreciate water, go through your regular routine today, and think about all the times you turn on the tap, run the shower, start the dishwasher or clothes washer, water the plants, give your dog a bath, any task that requires water. Even your electricity could have required water to be generated. We love you water! To read more about World Water Day, please click the link below.
