Are you a Shower Singer?

You know I love to sing in the shower how about you? One of the songs that I love to sing is “I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.” Now the reason why I put this in my blog is because really the only place that wants to hear my singing is the shower! I stay in there for awhile enjoying the bliss of it all. I kind of miss this song on their commercial. Shop the Coca-Cola Online Store!“>Coca-Cola My family especially my sister and a lot of my neighbors have their collectibles, kitchen glasses, bar ware furniture,apparel, collections, nostalgia, coolers, home art, retro. I even collect these including their great Christmas ornaments. You know they sell these year round!

Per Wikipedia…Soda refers to *a chemical compound containing sodium. Webster..says Soda a name applied to various compounds of sodium. Webster’s scientific term of sodium (Chem.) a metallic element. Guess we better watch going through those airport securities, I’m surprised I don’t set the alarms off!
Also for those who want to know:::Sodium Carbonate is a washing soda or soda ash per Wikipedia. Reminds me of a joke…oh never mind. Sodium hydroxide, is a caustic soda. Why because it caust to. Sodium bicarbonate is baking soda. (hopefully we can rise to the occasion). Also Sodium oxide no description here. Soft Drinks per Wiki…is a drink that does not contain alcohol. Thank goodness, I wouldn’t be able to perform at work! Soft drinks are often (my opinion all) carbonated and commonly consumed while hot,oh no…I meant cold. Just seeing if you were with me this far. The term “soft” is in opposition to “hard” i.e. alcoholic drinks. That one wasn’t hard for me to figure out.

HISTORY: In the late 18th century scientists mad important progress in replicating naturally carbonated mineral waters. See we are drinking healthy when we drink a coke! Mineral water! In 1767 Englishman Joseph Priestley first discovered a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide to make carbonated water when he suspended a bowl of distilled water above a beer vat at a local brewery in Leeds, England. His invention of carbonated water (also known as soda water)is the major and defining component of most soft drinks. Here I have to tell you..I am not a fan of just soda water..something has to be added to it to make it yummie.
Priestley found water thus treated had a pleasant taste (is he nuts!) and he offered it to friends as a refreshing drink. (Don’t want to be one of his friends!) In 1772 Priestley (not Elvis) published a paper entitled Impregnating Water with Fixed Air in which he describes dripping oil of vitriol (or sulfuric acid as it is now called) onto chalk to produce carbon dioxide gas, and encouraging the gas to dissolve into an agitated bowl of water. (I would have ben agitated too)! Swedish chemist Jons Jacob Berzelius started to add flavors(oh now we like him). He added spices, juice and wine to carbonated water in the late 18th century.

Soft Drink Bottling Industry:::Over 1500 U.S. patents were filed for either a cork, cap, or lid for the carbonated drink bottle tops during the early days of the bottling industry. Carbonated drink bottles are under a lot of pressure from the gas. Inventors were trying to find the best way to prevent the carbon dioxide or bubbles (This is where you sing Tiny Bubbles)from escaping. In 1892, the “Crown Cork Bottle Seal” was patented by William Painter, a Baltimore machine shop operator. It was the first very successful method of keeping the bubbles in the bottle.

The story of <a href="Shop the Coca-Cola Online Store!“>Coca-Colabirth of a refreshing idea was a product that gave the world it’s best known taste. Amen to that! This taste was created in Atlanta, Georgia on May 8th, of 1886 by a Dr. John Smith Pemberton, a local pharmacist. He produced the syrup for Coca-Cola(trademark sign), and carried a jug of the new product to the Jacob’s Pharmacy (where he worked), it was sampled, pronounced “excellent” (We knew that already) and placed it on sale for five cents a glass as a soda fountain drink. (Are you thristy yet?) Carbonated water was teamed with the new syrup to produce a drink that was at once and still is the most “Delicious and Refreshing”, a story that continues to echo today wherever Coca-Cola is consumed.

If you decide to purchase any of <a href="Shop the Coca-Cola Online Store!“>Coca-Cola’s collections or any of there items from their store, just thought I would let you know..returns are easy and convenient. You may return your purchase within 30 days of purchase for a refund or replacement.
