    Also very glad that you defeated a difficult health condition. Maybe it was the beer drinking?? *winks*
    As for your cheeky comment 'do they even have Summer up there?' if you can call 31C with a humidity factor making it 'seem' like 38C, well then yes, you may indeed say that this must be summer.
    (We are experiencing crazy heat as of July).
    Lets raise a toast to the people responsible for inventing air conditioning!
    It isn't hot until it is up to 50, so I don't need air conditioning, yet. But if you need an excuse for drinking, then take it.

    O.K., Myth 4 might be true under other circumstances also, but they would all be uncomfortable or hazardous, and drinking too much water can also lead to weight gian, if one's kidneys aren't in good shape.

    Marketing people have jobs, so there must be lots of people who don't use common sense.

    And my health is remarkably good for someone who had a condition that kills 90% of those who get it, and I seldom drink water. I would rather be like a certain racehorse.

    I hope that you are enjoying your Summer. Or do they even have Summer up there?

    In Myth #4, drinking water leading to weight loss -- this COULD be true, if the person consumes a couple of glasses of water prior to a meal, which disables them from eating too much.... maybe? If I were obese and truly wanted to lose weight, I might buy into this...

    Yes, a few brew really do quench the thirst. Can't argue with you there.

    Yes, drinking these astronomical amounts of water daily, as directed by none other than the water bottlers themselves... hmmmm use common sense!! Ya gotta wonder....

    There are times when only an ice cold bottle of water will quench my thirst. And other times where a tall glass of white wine will suffice.

    Interesting blog entry; and hope that your health is going well.

    What an interesting blog entry. Enjoyed it immensely, Peter.
    Yes, those old cigarette ads were great: "Not a cough in a carload", More doctors smoke Camels", and so on. I think their statistics were inspirations to the people selling ACC.
    This is the more doctors commercial

    Thank you. I am glad that someone agrees. Now I just hope that they will pay my bill.
