JPD, I used to do the same thing as you. There was a spring by my house that everyone would drink from and fill up water bottles to bring home. I do not know of anyone ever getting sick from that water. Eventually it was shut down when it tested positive for urine. What I quickly learned is that just because it has been safe to drink in the past does not mean it is safe now. It just takes one time for something to contaminate it and boy will you be sorry.

On a hot summer day, a shot or less of Ouzo added to a glass of cold water does the trick for me.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

i have a new thirst quenching addiction. it's snapple diet iced green tea with ginseng, cut 60/40 with water. it's far too sweet full strength, but cut down you can taste the tea and ginseng.

i drank 2 gallons (actually 3 with the water added) of it just this past week.
