Iodine tablets come in a brown bottle to help protect them from large temperature changes. Keeping the tablets dry helps them remain more stable. The tablets will last for up to four years unopened, and seem to work more quickly if they are fresh. They degrade with air, water, or light exposure, but since they are inexpensive, they can easily be replaced every year. The manufacturer of the tablets suggests against switching to a smaller bottle. So, with that warning, if you make the switch, be sure to use a tight, brown bottle that keeps the tablets dry. Even the original cotton in the bottle is meant to absorb any moisture that may be present. If you re-package the tablets to a smaller bottle, try to keep a little of the cotton.

Water to be treated that is colder than 68 degrees F will take longer. A warmer solution of the original mixture from the bottle will have a higher concentration of iodine. So, fewer capfuls will be required, and more water can be treated before refilling the Polar Pure bottle. You can warm the bottle in your pocket or in sunlight. Dosage instructions, as well as thermal reactive paint on the bottle, tell you how much liquid to pour from the bottle into the water that is to be disinfected.

But here is where things went sour, at least for me. In the two hours before the luncheon, I was crazy busy. I decorated the outdoor patio and moved everything into place. And that is not all. Because everything was fresh from the oven, I ended up having to slice the ham and carve the chickens myself. Not to mention, preparing the pineapples and mixing together the salads. And to make things worse, I forgot ice. I did not even get to eat because I did not have time.

I knew I had concerns with my mental condition, but i really began to think I was going crazy. The shame associated with this thought is immense. Hiding my troubles seemed like the best option for a long time.

Who really knows if organic is any better? The bad stuff is already in the environment. Pesticides. Herbicides. Acid rain. Dust from nuclear fallout. Does that ever really go away? It’s all out there, hanging around waiting to get into your food. Fact is, unless we raise beef cattle in a hermetically sealed tank, they’re going to soak up crap that never leaves their systems. And you’ll wind up eating it.
