A word from Richard

Hello everyone. Hope you have been enjoying the weather.

Our family holiday to New Zealand was just fantastic and of course went too fast but we sure managed to pack in a lot. What a beautiful place, with snow capped mountains and huge lakes. Plenty to see and do.

Wow what a busy start to November. A few hot days and sales go through the roof. How about you? Hope you all managed to have the afternoon off yesterday for the race that stops a Nation. Anyone pick the winner?

It feels like Summer is on its way with these hot days we’ve had lately. We have had some nice days of swimming in our pool over the weekends and it has been a nice way to finish the day with a quiet dip.

Have you booked your Christmas luncheons yet? Better get cracking as it is only a few weeks away now.

Until next time, keep hydrated and don’t forget........... If You’re Not Using A Water Filter, Your Body Is One!!!

Lasers Offer an Automated Way to Test Drinking Water

To keep drinking water clean, experts are constantly monitoring our supply to check it for contaminants. Now laser technology will give them a helping hand: a new system automatically analyzes water samples at the waterworks itself.

In today's world, we simply cannot do without lasers. We use them to print out documents, play CDs or DVDs, weld, cut, or bend car components, survey roads, monitor our bloodstream, and even remove tumors from our bodies.

Now researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF in Freiburg have developed the technology for a further application. Their quantum cascade laser -- a particular type of infrared laser -- forms the core of an analysis apparatus that allows drinking water to be sampled automatically at the waterworks itself.

To examine the components of water, experts use molecular spectroscopy: that is to say, they examine the optical spectra of the molecules in the water. Each chemical com-pound has a unique spectrum, since individual molecules vibrate and absorb light at characteristic frequencies.

Water itself is a very strong absorber of infrared light; since the light sources employed to date have delivered little power, until now examinations of this sort have been possible only in a laboratory setting. "The main sticking point is the intensity of the light. In order to be in a position to employ molecular spectroscopy at the waterworks itself, we needed to find a more powerful light source," explains Fuchs.

Water facts

Margaret River in the Southwest of Western Australia.

Although small and unremarkable, it is the eponym of the iconic town and tourist region of Margaret River, famous for its surfing, caves and wine.

The river arises from a catchment of just 40 square kilometres in the Whicher Ranges. For much of its middle reaches it passes through land cleared for agriculture, especially viticulture.

There is a weir across the river just above the town and the mouth of the river is a small estuary, closed to the ocean by a sandbar that opens only seasonally.

Margaret River is presumed to be named after Margaret Wyche, cousin of John Garrett Bussell (founder of Busselton) in 1831.

Health Tip

This month's health tip brought to you by "Box 33 X-Training Studio"

Sleep is such an important element to health and general well-being, in addition to weight control. Whilst getting 7-8 hours per night is great, it’s the quality of that sleep that is most critical. If you wake up not feeling refreshed and rested then here are some simple and natural ideas to improve sleep quality:

1. Get to bed early! In bed by 10pm and asleep by 10.30pm. Physical and psychological repair cycles occur between approx. 10.30pm and 2pm. Get to bed at 12pm and your body is missing out on 1.5 hours of repair.

2. Minimise exposure to bright lights in the 2 hours leading up to bedtime. This includes fluorescent lights, TV and PC’s. Bright light stimulates the brain and will make getting to sleep harder.

3. Sleep in a room that is completely dark. If you do wake up in the night do not turn on the light as this may suppress melatonin production, which is a hormone that regulates sleep.

4. Avoid the consumption of chemical stimulants after lunch. These include caffeine, energy drinks, sugar and nicotine.

5. Exercise is extremely beneficial for sleep, however high intensity exercise at night may increase cortisol levels and make it harder to sleep. So exercise in the morning or stick to lower intensity exercise at night.

6. Eat well, including healthy fats ,which are the building blocks of hormones, foods high in antioxidants such as fruit and vegetables and healthy protein sources at dinner.

7. Get into a routine and find an activity that is relaxing and calming before bedtime to wind down. Examples include light stretching/yoga, reading a (hardcopy) book or having a bath.

8. Drink plenty of filtered water.

Customer testimonial

Great stuff Richard

Just to let you know that my wife spoke really highly of the man who came and swapped the filters.

Derek - great stuff. As a result, book us in for our annual filter replacement.

A closing thought

Lateral Thinking

"Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! and powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches"
