Water, taken in moderation, cannot hurt anybody.

I never drink water. I'm afraid it will be habit-forming.

That is a beautiful fountain. I imagine the horses are allowed to drink from the trough and people can fill their containers from the spouts, and the water never stops running from the spring.

Hi Becky,
Wow, beautiful! And it is so nice to meet you!
You have such an awesome vibe...a clear flow of consciousness. I love the water and when we renovated our home after Hurricane Katrina, I tried to introduce many elements of feng shui...and water is so important...(We didn't live here before the hurricane.)

I love this fountain...it is fantastic.
Have a happy week!!
