Thread: Live in Florida?

    Default Live in Florida?

    Giant sinkhole has dumpled 215 million gallons of toxic, "slightly radioactive" wastewater into the Florida aquifer supplying the Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa, and St. Petersburg area of Florida.

    The ground water around Tampa will be the most affected. 69 percent comes up to the surface through springs and diffuse upward flow and out to the ocean. The rest is pumped up. No idea how long total recharge of that area would take or if it will ever be totally flushed. I'll drink spring water in Ocala (80 miles away NE). I might be buying water if I was in Tampa for a time.

    No. No, it hasn't. It keeps bouncing around in my head. Just about the time I think I'm over it someone (I'm not naming names mind you) posts it again. Vicious circle.

    I sort of enjoy the song. It is much better than some of the kids fare offered today.

    You can actually use it to erase the Barney the dinosaur song from your mind.

    The tune is from:
    "I's a Knickknack, Patty Whack, ....give the frog a loan....His old man is a rolling stone......."
    Or something like that....?
