Have You Heard The News Around The Water Cooler?

Everybody has heard the phrase “Guess what I heard at the water cooler” and it is associated as work place gossip. Usually when you think of a water cooler, you think of a work situation where employees can get a cool drink, but things have changed and so has the water cooler. Let’s talk about the evolution of water coolers, how they are different from the past and where they are being used.

Water coolers started out very simple, just a base with a spout to support a refillable water bottle which could be replaced when the water ran out. As time progressed, electricity was introduced and the simple water cooler now became much more popular. Now, compressors and heating elements could be added to give the thirsty person a very cold glass of water or even a cup of hot water for coffee or soup. More and more people saw the need to have a water cooler around for convenience. With that, companies sprang up to supply the demand, providing a service that not only supplied the customer with the water cooler, but also the water itself contained in reusable bottles that could be picked up and dropped off at the customers demand. This service really made hot and cold water coolers popular and made the companies that supplied it very rich.

Let’s look at some of the reasons why people like to use water coolers and what benefits they offer. First and foremost, people like convenience; they don’t want to do more then necessary. Another reason is they can get very hot or cold water instantly at the flip of a switch, rather then having to use ice cubes for cold water or heating some water on the stove for soup, coffee, etc. The benefits these water coolers provide are that the equipment is supplied by the company you have a contract with; any problems and they will fix it. Also, your water is brought right to your location upon request, when you need more water; all you have to do is call for service.

Now, let’s look the disadvantages of using this method of water cooler service.

A big problem is most companies that provide this service require that you sign a contract with them and sometimes you can be penalized for breaking the contract. Also, the payment is not a one time deal; you have to keep paying as long as you have a contract for the service, this can become very costly, especially for businesses using multiple units. Another hassle is having to change the old water bottle with a new one, they are heavy and easy to spill if you are not careful. Not to mention, you have to store all the empty bottles along with the supply of full bottles until the service man comes again. Plus, who knows if the water you are getting is really clean drinking water, you just have to hope that it is and take a chance.

Now let’s talk about a solution to your water cooler needs. There is a better way and that is a water cooler that is designed for today’s generation keeping their needs in mind. This type of water cooler is unique in many ways and the benefits are great. What I am talking about is Bottleless hot and cold water cooler that is plumbed directly into your cold water line. This allows you to have an endless supply of water, no heavy water bottles to change out; you won’t have to worry about ordering more water and no more clutter of empty bottles. The best aspect of this water cooler is the water filtration system. Not only do you have an endless supply of water, but you can know that the water you drink is filtered pure for good health. The water coolers come as a regular water filtration model or a reverse osmosis system, either one offers the best drinking water. Think of the advantage of owning the water cooler, no lengthy contracts, no more changing water bottles and the system pays for itself in no time. These bottle less water coolers also come in a portable model that can be connected to your water line or you can just pour water into the holding tank and move the unit anywhere you want. These water coolers are ideal for home use and perfect for business use. If you would like to learn more about these water coolers and what they can do for you, visit www.ronjuneshop.com .

    2 Navy Seals drowned ? 1989-1991 Pensacola News Journal?
    I lived in Pensacola 1988-1992. In a Sunday Pensacola News Journal there was an article about two Navy Seals ages @ 23 & 25 had drowned in rough water conditions at Navarre Beach while their wives watched helpless in horror @ 1:30pm clear sunny skies. I haven’t contacted the Pensacola News Journal to see if someone can find that article. I searched MSN, Yahoo, Google, Ask.com, obituary archives for Navarre Beach & greater Pensacola & Navy website, couldn’t find. Thought if anyone knows if Navy keeps death records private?

    (Details in length, thank you very much if anyone takes time to read through. PLEASE don’t send me nasty or sarcastic replies. I’ve survived hell in countless ways over decades & still have alot to get through.

    We were less than 1/2 mile from where it occurred (because of curves in shoreline couldn’t see that far) with 5 young boys my 2 sons included. Like most times when there beach was deserted except this day a few college guys were @ 75ft from us.

    Despite clear sunny weather, Gulf was rough with waves quite high. Boys wanted to swim (3 of 5 exc swimmers) & frolic in waves, right away I forbade them and at worst ankle deep to get water for sandcastles etc. No lifeguards, undertow & rough waves stirred up sand, rocks…wasn’t the usual crystal clear aqua water and I was non-swimmer. I said a few times I’d rather bring them to bay side where water is more calm & they could have a great time. They protested, promised they’d make sand castles, bury eachother in the sand, throw frisbee, balls, picnic etc. Against my gut feelings & stressed with worry I sat down in beachchair abouu 25 ft away, book in hand, mirrored sunglasses so they couldn’t see I was watching them instead of reading. Got something out of cooler, when I looked up the boldest of them (11yr old) was in water to his calves, got knocked over by crashing waves, dragged out with undertow over his head in seconds. Saw the horror in his eyes he couldn’t get back to shore. Terrorizing time that in milli-seconds I had to decide to go in after him before he was too far out and knowing odds were great I’d drown trying to save him plus my sons and 2 of their friends would be on beach without me. They didn’t even notice what was happening while playing and I didn’t have time to explain. I couldn’t live without having tried to save him so I prayed to Jesus and his Mother Mary to protect me, I didn’t want to die, begged them to save us. I looked quickly at the college guys who saw what was happening and of course they didn’t want to risk helping. In tears I decided asap to give it my all before he was too far out to reach. (I had nearly drowned as a kid so the fear of water over my head plus conditions were traumatic). Waves crashed over my head with such force, I didn’t have chance to breath and undertow made my legs sink to my knees in sand every step, pulling legs back out I kept hearing "just one step at a time, stay calm…" over and over. His arms outstretched I thought if I could grab his wrist, I wouldn’t let go even if it meant breaking his arm to get him out…grabbed his wrist, turned around and getting us both to shore was more difficult plus fear he’d slip from my hand. We made it to shore he was so traumatized, vomitting, shaking, speechless…no reprimand needed he suffered enough. I thanked Jesus, Mary, God and all His Divine to save us from drowning. Over 5 yrs. I couldn’t speak a word of the incident without crying uncontrollably, post-traumatic syndrome I guess. The rest of the week I couldn’t understand how Gulf was so rough with beautiful weather conditions.

    In Sunday’s Pensacola News Journal, there was an article that during same time I was dealing with our situation, 2 Navy Seals had drowned in same water conditions so close to us but not visible because of the shoreline curves. Two young healthy strong men, who had already achieved Navy Seal status lost their lives. Their wives couldn’t help and had to watch them die struggling to get out. The article mentioned explained that because a tropical storm had ended just a few days before that was why the water were still rough. So water wasn’t just rough before and during the storm, it can take a few days after to subside. Not having been raised near water, this was so important to know. The article also mentioned how tourists lose their lives not knowing this plus countless beachgoers don’t know how to spot riptides or get out of them when caught in them.

    The article was testimony to the Divine powers that saved us that day in conditions beyond human strength. I knew the many kinds of training, knowledge and disciplines that must be mastered before officially achieving Seal.

    Divine blessings two lives saved and beyond my comprehension two wonderful men lost their lives about the same time. Respectfully thankful.

    wow,I saw your question and had some time on my hands and it became a quest to find what you were looking for.
    From what I found the archives for the Pensacola news journal only go back to 1999.If I were you I would contact them first.There is also a Navy seal forum that you could post your question in and probably get some answers.That site seemed pretty active.Think it was simply Navysealsforum.com.
    Sorry,but I tried.
