I enjoy getting on Twitter every morning and reading the articles or visiting the websites that my followers suggest. Every once in a while, I will click on a link and just stare at the screen, amazed or applauded at what I’m looking at. Today’s blog is just about that.

Link It To Me
is a list of links suggested by the users i follow on Twitter, that are beyond ordinary. I am in no way promoting any products or contests by featuring a link on this blog. It is a way for my readers to see different ideas or products that they may not have come across in their daily googling. So without further ado – Here are my three picks for today’s link it to me.
Let’s start things off with The Original Rainwater Pillow

Developed by Jim Harrington in response to the drought in Georgia. He recognized the havoc that a lack of available water could wreak on his customers gardens. The result is The Original Rainwater Pillow, an innovative way to take advantage of Georgia's short, heavy downpours and provide ample water for flowers, gardens and other outdoor watering needs. Better yet, we do it without hard-to-disguise tanks and the garden excavation required for cisterns!

The standard 8' x 10' model fits in most crawlspaces and under deck areas, and can hold 1,000 gallons of water at a time. Custom sizes that can hold up to 40,000 gallons of water may also be designed to fit your available space. Prices range from $2,500-$4,200 depending on the size of the pillow you want.

Next up is a contest sponsored by, called Six Words On Water
The Six-Word Challenge is about one of summer’s treats and earth’s increasingly rare resources: water. “Whether your half-dozen well-chosen words are about water worries (”Save water, shower with a friend”) or the joys of jumping into the deep blue sea (”Oldster surfing: Call it ‘Gray Crush’”), we want your six words on water,” the article stated.

Three winners received a Spreadshirt tee that shows off their six wet words.
Here is one of the winning t-shirts:

Okay- I saved the best (or worse) for last. was founded in 2007 as a worldwide effort to get people to save water. The goal is to promote a simple way to ease water consumption. Quite simply, millions of gallons of water could be conserved each day – by having volunteers pee outside.

The site includes pictures (YES PICTURES!!!) and F.A.Q. It is defiantly off-the-wall but I applaud them for their creativity…then I stop clapping once I see the pictures (ha ha).
Vie w the site and make your own opinion!
