Very few things come in glass containers these days. Too bad IMHO. It's infinitely recyclable and I think things taste better than in plastic or coated cardboard. 



I'm pretty sure it has to do with shipping costs - glass is relatively heavy. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/08/2016:  15:17:05


we used to use a genuine Cool-Ade glass pitcher for our band's tip jar... until a drunk dancer tipped it over and smashed it. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/08/2016:  15:24:17


I don't drink much pop anymore, but I enjoyed coke or root beer a lot more if I poured it into a glass

OM45GE - Posted - 04/09/2016:  18:38:16


I hate coffee in Styrofoam. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/09/2016:  23:51:46


I always request my ice tea be in Styrofoam at gigs, so that I won't get condensation on my hands between songs

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2016:  04:38:10


Not for me. I don't like the feel of Styrofoam and a swear it makes things taste funny.  

DeanT - Posted - 04/10/2016:  07:11:28


I do agree, and much prefer glass when I don't have to play!

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2016:  10:11:08


How about an insulated stainless steel mug?

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/10/2016:  13:32:08


That's a healthy way to go too - I buy distilled water in plastic jugs, but like to transfer it to glass asap

OM45GE - Posted - 04/10/2016:  15:28:20


Do you have a refrigerator in the truck?

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/10/2016:  19:39:01


Yes, a small fridge, but it's ok. After I had a kidney stone (eeeyyooowww) on the road a few years ago, I started drinking a lot more water, and cutting back on caffeine.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/11/2016:  03:17:33


When I was driving OTR very few trucks had refrigerators. I used a cooler. I would freeze some gallon jugs of water and would have nice cold water for up to a couple of weeks. 



The kidney stone must have been awful on the road. I can't imagine. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/11/2016:  04:59:34


Ouch... I hope caffeine doesn't cause kidney stones, I'm in trouble

dat - Posted - 04/11/2016:  06:13:39


my bride used to get kidney stones pretty bad, then she started drinking filtered water and hasn't had any since, we use a Pur water filter or bottled for everything she drinks or cooks with

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/11/2016:  06:20:37


I wasn't drinking enough water and too much caffeine and energy drinks,which rob your system of water. Yeah, that was a fun day - called 911, ten minutes later the fire truck and ambulance show up, I'm throwing up in pain, they take me 45 minutes to a hospital, check in and waiting another half hour for a doctor- still no painkillers- , do a scan and 20 minutes later finally got a shot of morphine. Whew...  The company put me up in a motel and I passed the stone that night.  Now I drink lots of water and take a herbal supplement called "Stone Crusher" twice a week.

oooph, stone crusher sounds painful

DeanT - Posted - 04/11/2016:  09:59:39


I might be lucky... no one that I know if in my family has ever had a kidney stone... hope I didn't just jinx myself...

dat - Posted - 04/11/2016:  10:36:00


drink plenty of water

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/11/2016:  10:45:43


Yep, lots of water and avoid strawberries, rhubarb, sardines,beets. You can look up other foods to avoid ,cuz they have some stuff in them that can contribute to kidney stones.

dmiller - Posted - 04/11/2016:  10:48:58


I used to drink a LOT of coffee back when I did local delivery driving, and never did get kidney stones.  If caffeine causes them, I guess I lucked out.   I don't drink as much coffee as I used to, especially out on long trips.  I've got a 250 mile thermos, but only a 75 mile bladder.

our water has a lot of minerals, when my bride started getting stones, the doc wanted to figure out why and what caused them, they did a urine sample over a week and found out what was the main thing in the stones,  the doc said there were about three types of stones and what ever your stone type is you can usually change your diet to decrease the stone making, she drank a lot of water, but filtering the water helped a lot. not many times 

DeanT - Posted - 04/11/2016:  16:16:55


with all my marathon training, I drink water by the gallon

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/11/2016:  20:37:29


You'll be OK then, Dean.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/12/2016:  03:42:43


It's probably not what Bob Dylan meant when he wrote Everybody Must Get Stoned. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/12/2016:  06:10:54


I don't think he was drinking water either...

dat - Posted - 04/12/2016:  09:07:32


I probably don't drink enough water, I think about it in the summer, but in the winter and fall I slack off on the water even though I should keep it up

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/12/2016:  11:55:15


As we get older we tend to turn into dried up old farts

DeanT - Posted - 04/12/2016:  12:17:59


At night time we produce enough water to pee several time a night... weather we drink enough or not....

dat - Posted - 04/12/2016:  14:36:24


so far I still sleep all night without having to get up,   I just seem to wake up earlier now 

DeanT - Posted - 04/12/2016:  16:18:20


I don't even have to set an alarm anymore... I just pick one of my pee times, and stay up...

OM45GE - Posted - 04/13/2016:  03:23:13


I can make it through the night but I only sleep six hours or so. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/13/2016:  05:24:27


One thing I like about retirement, I sleep 9-10 hours every night... or until my dogs think it's breakfast time

dat - Posted - 04/13/2016:  05:48:50


I would probably sleep more if I could, but it seems hard to find the time. with work and driving time back and forth, I have 11 hours at home a day.  30 min of that is in the morning before work, when you figure in taking a bath, eating, doing a little bit with the family, if I sleep more than 7 hours I've run out of time for something else that I could have done while at home

OM45GE - Posted - 04/13/2016:  09:00:22


Unless I'm ill, I can't sleep more than six or seven hours. 

dat - Posted - 04/13/2016:  09:54:40


funny to me, I have a hard time waking up during the week, but wake up at the same time on the weekends without an alarm clock wide awake and ready to go

DeanT - Posted - 04/13/2016:  10:17:40


It goes back to all my marathon training... I hit the bed, and I pass out. I sleep in the morning until one of my dogs thinks I've had enough. If I was undisturbed, I could easily sleep 12 hours or more

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/13/2016:  11:06:49


I have no sleep pattern....usually sleep 4 or 5 hours when I can, and try get a nap during the day. Working in 4 time zones with all hour deliveries and pickups for 13 years messed up any internal sleep clock I had.

When the paper mill was still open here I knew a lot of people that worked there and it was shift time.   all of them could pretty much sleep any time and wake up ready with just a little bit of sleep. they said you adjust to sleeping when you can.    my body knows when it's getting close to 10:30 or 11.



seems like people working shift work would be more efficient if they stayed with the same schedule instead of changing from day, evening, morning and being tired when they change

OM45GE - Posted - 04/13/2016:  15:22:24


The shift I had the most trouble adjusting to was 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM. We used to get a lot of ot and I never got more than a couple hours of sleep. I hated it. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/13/2016:  16:00:03


Yes, I hate all-nighters. There's evidence that most industrial accidents happen around 4am

DeanT - Posted - 04/13/2016:  16:27:17


I'm making up for all the all nighters we had in the military...

dmiller - Posted - 04/13/2016:  21:15:25


After high school, I worked for Otis Elevator and when I hired on it was for the midnight shift.  I didn't have to switch shifts so I got used to it, but it wasn't much fun sleeping during the day when all your friends were having fun.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/14/2016:  03:22:45


Nothing like a telemarketing call at 9:00 AM when you've just fallen asleep. 

DeanT - Posted - 04/14/2016:  06:07:15


I got good at unlugging the phone. I still turn my phone off at night

dat - Posted - 04/14/2016:  07:38:58


we leave the phone on, but we try to stay on the no call list

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/14/2016:  08:40:49


I shut everything off before sleeping. Sleep is an important safety factor for me....Don't want it interrupted.

dat - Posted - 04/14/2016:  09:58:11


Sleep is kinda like breathing, once you don't do it, you miss it pretty bad

DeanT - Posted - 04/14/2016:  11:08:14


Our dogs sleep 22 hours a day... but when it's time for breakfast, everyone must wake up

dat - Posted - 04/14/2016:  11:41:41


would be nice to be able to wake up as fast as a dog does, from snoring and chasing rabbits in a dream to wide awake and ready to go in 1 second.    it takes me a while of wallaring to wake up then about 15 or twenty steps to get my legs to where I know where they are before I get to moving well

dat - Posted - 04/14/2016:  12:10:48


made me think of this
