It’s a “D-C” Day!

Happy Birthday to Melissa Haberl and Jeffery Myers.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Mike Hambly for Tim Lea.

Still Thirsty?…… Bottled water can be hundreds or even thousands of times more expensive than tap water. Per litre, it is often more pricey than gasoline. Some brands, like Aquafina and Dasani, use water directly from the municipal tap water sources and sell it back to you at outrageous prices. So, is bottled water really worth it? (Info provided by your Environment Club.)
