The primary purpose of this blog is to advise readers of significant updates to our Wisdom Tidbits website (temporarily mothballed, not available), as well as any important new postings on our other three related blogs, FluBits, DumBits, and AutBits.

So, this blog will mainly feature alerts regarding website updates as well as alerts to postings on our other blogs as they occur, so that you can check out this central blog at your leisure to more easily determine whats new within the vast realm of the WisBits website and our other blogs.

However, a secondary purpose of this blog, our main focal point for all of our resources, is to also provide a medium to present short news items here of important relevance that do not necessarily fit well within the scope of the main WisBits website or the other three blogs. Now, "fetch me my axe...".

Water Quality Report by Zip Code

Here is a link to a website where you can find a water "quality" report by zip code. The water quality report is in reality more like a "Contaminated Water Danger Report" for your region, which you may use to determine how best to filter your tap water. Note that if the water contamination report for your area pushes you to consider bottled water, that you may also find a report there on the contamination "quality" of the more popular bottled waters. Likely, your best option is to use a double reverse osmosis filtration system on your tap water, and use that to mix with the best bottled water, all of which goes into a carbon filter water pitcher (to lessen the differing strengths of the toxins in each water source). Note that we checked the "water danger" report for our area, and the residue of the "disinfectant" chemicals that the water company uses to "purify" the tap water significantly exceeded safe levels. Ah, for the good old days when our drinking water was only polluted with poisonous fluoride and toxic chlorine -- time to move up into the mountains near an alpine stream...
