The internet is full of new information. Some sites are not so helpful, others are definitely a wealth of knowledge. When I rented a house in Las Vegas for a month so I could do some research for a travel blog focussed on casinos around the world I was about to create, the owners of the house told me to order water from a local company called Tahoe Springs. It turns out this water company handles water delivery for both businesses and private homes throughout the Las Vegas area. I looked up their online site so I could learn more. They offer fresh purified drinking water or natural spring water, as well as alkaline water. Who knew there was such a variety of “regular” water. I ended up getting a weekly delivery of their Mountain Spring Water which supposedly flows from a 3,000 year old source up somewhere in the mountains. That sounded pretty cool. Supposedly it revitalizes your body with minerals and is naturally Sodium-Free. I felt revitalize, but that might have been because I was spending a month in Las Vegas visiting and revisiting different casinos every night. I planned on using my travel casino blog as a steping-stone to eventually writing a book in a year or two. It’s exciting. Whether I get a book deal or self publish remains to be seen.
