    Well. Filtered through a softener and a Reverse Osmosis system to remove the nitrates.

    We have a well but at times it smells “eggish” so I use my Brita for all cooking and drinking. Paul drinks bottled. According to him it tastes better than the Brita water. I hate wasting all that plastic though.

  3. Yes please! 😀
    We’re on a well, use a filter, and buy bottled for long-distance road trips.

    Tap, no filter. No need, our city water is pretty darn good! We never buy bottled water.

    We never buy bottled water, sorry but I am so against that. We have a filter on the fridge, and we fill our plastic bottles all the time.

    90% of the time I drink bottled or filtered water. When I’m at work I’ll drink water out of the fountain. About a year ago there was a story on the news about what they found in tap water and ever since then I try really hard to only drink filtered water. They talked about all the perscription medication that’s in tap water because it doesn’t get filtered out. Every test they did found antibiotics in it.

    Tap water for me. I too am no fan of bottled water. We had a filter once – not my idea – and it got so filthy and disgusting. Lotta good that did! It also took up too much space in the sink while trying to wash dishes. Not worth the trouble, I say. Tap water has always been good enough for me. I also think it tastes better than bottled, at least around here.

    We have a well but we have a water softener. So it’s not really the well water taste. Well water tastes yummy!! I can’t stand city water. Has a weird taste to it.

    We live in a small town on the outskirts of Missoula and we have a well. It is the best tasting water I have ever had in my life. Not only is it delicious, but it’s icy cold! One very positive aspect of living in a state that stays cold much of the year…

    Tap water here. Bottled water for traveling.

    Brita at home..bottled water for on the go!

    Hello Laura ,

    Thank goodness it’s a different Michael Moore! I have to say that we Montanans would actually probably scare the crap out of the other Michael Moore if he was brave enough to come here and get mouthy! Kind of wish he would…

    I’m so glad you checked out the article about the little challenge between the Missoulian and the Tribune. I totally agree that it’s like the proverbial comparison of apples and oranges. I really do believe there is something lovely and unique about every place on Earth. It’s also refreshing to see that the continued bantering between the writers has been engaging and witty, and the readers input friendly, which is nice during this age of mean-spirited people.

    Thanks so much for inserting the link to the site. I admit to still being a neophyte on the computer, and it took me nearly all day yesterday to find the site, adjust some of the sizes on my photos and then post them. I am new to making contributions, but it’s fun to be included—just like on this great blog 🙂

    Britta water at home.. and I’ll fill Nalgene bottles for on the go. On the rare occasion I will buy bottled water (e.g. on trips, at the airport)

    Hi Laura and all the Girls,
    Commenting on blog sites is new for me, but it’s been so much fun! I love writing because it gives me extra time to “ponder”. And I love to take pictures, because it also makes time stand still for a brief moment. But while photography is a passion of mine, I never went so far as to post many of my own photos (Lazy, fear of rejection, intimidated by computers—who knows!?!). However, I did enter some of my own pics into the contest between the Missoulian and Chicago, and my bear cub photo is now tied for third place, out of more than 200 photos!. I’m so darned excited, not only because it gives me some validation that I can take a decent photo, but because other people actually see what I experienced—-which was a surreal, rare encounter! The little bear came for the banquet of fresh pears, and soon found the sunflower seeds that I leave out for the birds and squirrels.

    We watched it eat, while it watched us gawk, for over an hour. During a moment of complete craziness (I admit it), I took two steps and reached out to stroke it’s back. My guys were horrified, but the scene was peaceful and beautiful. And the feel of it’s fur was something I will never forget as long as I live! All the baby did was let out a little cat-like hiss while staring straight at me, then it went back to gorging itself on our bounty of treats. A few minutes later, after everyone really fussed at me for being dumb enough to do such a thing, my son’s friend held out a pear in his hand, and the cub took a big, scary swipe at his hand!!! Obviously, the bear was not tame or used to people, there was a special connection between this wild creature and myself.
    And it happened at a time when I really needed to feel that there is more to life than the crap we all face on a regular basis.

    I also checked out all of the photos from Chicago. It’s a lovely place, and they like bears, right?
