Each year there is a World Blog Action Day in October When bloggers of the world unite to write about a subject of global concern.  Each year the choice of subject is put to the vote and this year the winner is water.  There are lots of horrendous stories and statistics about the number of people who die each day from lack of clean drinking water or the damage done to the environment by water pollution to the unwanted addition of fluoride to our drinking water.

I'm not sure what I'll write about, it's one of the few occasions where I actually plan a blog entry more than two minutes ahead of time.

In the meantime though there's a Petition.  the widget doesn't seem to work on here but the link will take you through to the widgets and you can sign up from there. Please consider signing the petition.
