The other day Shannon wanted to get one of those water filters for your kitchen sink, but as usual I expanded on the idea and decided to get a whole-house filter. I've heard that the chlorine in the city water dries your skin and hair out in the shower. I don't know if that is just marketing from the filter companies, but I bought it.

While I was at Lowe's, I asked the guy in the plumbing department what he thought about whole-house filters. I told him that it seemed like a good idea, but I thought it was a waste to flush my toilet with filtered water. He told me that toilet flushing generally isn't a large part of your daily water consuption. He said that the average person uses 300 gallons of water a day. Wow, and the toilet only takes 1.6 gallons per flush.

I had to rent some PEX crimpers to install it, and once I got it in I remembered that I hate plumbing. It leaks. So I'll have to re-do it one of these days. In the meantime I put a bucket under it. It's only about a drip a minute.

In other news, I've been working hard on the Chi Alpha website. I want to make it so that Bible study leaders can upload the studies and stuff like that, and then I think it will be ready for launch. The U of M doesn't support ASP.NET 2.0 right now, so I may look into hosting it somewhere else (besides my house) until they do.

I'm sitting in the coffee shop in Walmart right now, listening to the radio snow report. It sounds like there has been quite a bit of snow in the mountains. That's good. I'm hoping to go to Big Sky in a couple weeks.

That's all for now. Have a great day.

p.s. that "let's go get some tacos" pic is creepy enlarged. kinda looks like he's got a gun to her back. "let's go get some tacos, or else." or is it, "let's go get some 'tacos' ?"...sorry.
