Thursdays Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge for March 27, 2008 - Precious Metal

Thursday's Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge for March 27, 2008 - "Precious Metal"

I can think of no more precious metal than the pipes, fittings and faucets that give us running water and indoor plumbing. As the worldwide water crisis worsens, having access to clean drinking water in my home is indeed a privilege, one I am trying to use responsibly.

Beyond being a nice image you are so right about the water issue. I first heard about it in college when we discussed how water controlled the west. As the population grew, the demand for water grew. I still do not understand how the southwest uses so much water for swimming pools and watering lawns. Just a thought.

So true, so true...and nice image.
