Grandma's got some magic water

Sometimes emails are entertaining in a good way.

(Thirty dollars a gallon for Magic Water, seriously.)

This may seem like a strange request but my sister-in-law is a farmer in MD and someone has been selling a “magic water” to spray on sheep before a show. They claim it gives the sheep ¼ more mass which apparently is important to sheep showing. Anyway, she sent me some of the water and asked if there was any way to test it to see if it was really just ordinary water or if something is in it. Could you run it over the HPLC or some other test to see if it has something major added to it?




Hey Cole!

Thanks for the note about the database memory thing. I tried to see what that was all about, but I could not replicate the problem. Did you by any chance have a lot of spectra open at the same time in GRAMS? The instrument seems to be working OK, sort of like we say about an 80 year old grandma that she is doing OK if she can manage to tackle a flight of stairs on her own. But I digress.

In any case, let me know if it happens again and I'll take a look at it.
