It's been over 10 years since I have had a dishwasher. I really miss the way pile ups could disappear so fast. I really miss the excellent cleanings too. My hand washing just doesn't clean like that and most of my stuff looks sort of dingy. When I see the left on crumb or it's not as shiny as I know it could be, I don't worry about it too much because I know I washed it. It's clean dirt. lol Ah well. It's not a big deal. I like doing dishes sometimes too. It's all good. I've created a zen dishwashing ritual. :) Maybe someday I'll get another dishwasher. I'm not too worried about it. It's fine because it's just me even though I do seem to make a lot of dirty dishes. lol. I'm grateful for all my cool kitchen stuff I get to wash. It's all good!

Yay, I finally got one! I couldn't win a Berkey in any contests and I entered them all, so I saved up and went ahead and bought one. I'd still love to win a camping/hiking version for my boys. I hope there will be other contests to enter. :) I'm not disappointed in this purchase. It's so much faster than the distiller that I was using and it leaves the good minerals. I like that I can use it in my cooking more. With the distiller, it took so long to make water that sometimes I just used tap water for cooking. The tips I read say you shouldn't leave the top dry for over three days with the black filters because you would have to re-prime the filters before using them again. I have two filters in so maybe I'll take one out and save it for later and have slower production and have an extra filter too! :) I had to let the water go through a couple of times to clear out the dust.. Just threw that out and now the water is pure and clean. It looks nice and lots better than the homemade one I was thinking of making with buckets. Although, I will have to see how this works out as far as the need to production ratio, and make adjustments... all in all... I like it very much.

Water is such an important element of life. I have rusty old pipes in a very old house and have been using a distiller for years. I would love to have something better and have researched it quite a bit. The Berkey is my definite choice. There are so many pluses to this gravity water filtration system. I've entered to win from Kelly the Kitchen Kop's blog giveaway and hope I do win so I can have the best water for myself and my family. You can enter too. OVER.

When my kids were little kiddos we played Spyro together. It was so much fun and my boys and I all played the game and watched each other play too. I absolutely Love the Spyro series and have played them all. In fact it's the only one video game I have ever finished to the end. My grandson loves them too. The new game looks like it will be so much fun! I'm so excited! NYC Single Mom has a giveaway for the newest Spyro Game!, Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Yay!
