Hi
How are you felling theses days? Have you heard from your sons? I hope they are well. Getting cooler at night, great for sleeping. There are two months a year where my electic bill doesn't give me a stroke, this month and May, no electric heat and no air conditioners. The heat is what really kills it, plus my sons half hour showers! Lol he's worse than a teen girl when it comes to that! Anyway, gotta go, here's a vote!

hard corals
Yeah, they are beautiful, but i don't have the right lighting, in fact, I've been bad and not replaced the bulbs in a long time. my dream is to get the kit to replace with the new l.e.d.s, but that would be over $250 for my tank. I'm so mad, the crabs got to one of my big turbo snails and were chowing on it. Friggin things! Thats the problem with snails, if they fall on their backs, they cant right themselves and become dinner. I hope the therapy works, I had a bad shoulder once, it didn't help and ended up with surgery. I didn't have a torn ligament, but it was badly frayed. I hear ya on the computer! That's why we invested in a ipad last year, best thing i ever got! If you can afford it, you can get a second gen. off eBay, that's what we got. Plus I love that it has auto spell! Like right now I'm on the regular p.c., and I'm finding it a pain to check my spelling, yeah I'm lazy! Well, off to work, take care!

Hello!
so the vet office was touched when 6 of us show up to send off the old dog, all snivels and tears, it was a great show for those who were in the waiting room. And now it's done so the dread is over. The new vet office is great, they are open 7 days a week, have 5 full time and 7 part time vets, and every one of them is such a good person. All the staff are so amazing. I really like that they are open till 8pm every weeknight but Weds, and good weekend hours so the odds of needing an after hour call is pretty small. Anyway, we had great weather today, deep blue sky, big fluffy white clouds and a nice wind that while is too windy for me to dig in dirt and plant anything tonight, is going to mean it's to be a cool night tonight indeed. aaaahhhh. Well, guess I should get going, I think my video game needs some dusting off, after all it's been almost a week since I last played, wouldn't want to go into withdrawals hehe. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Hi
Sad day for you with yur son shipping off I bet. Not much to report on this end. At the fish stor, I didn't like any of the frags they had, most were hard coral and I can only have softies. So I ended up picking up a baseball sized green star for about the same price I would have spent on the smaller frags. Not going to get anymore corals, I need to leave room for the one s I have to spread. Might have been a mistake getting the pumping zinnia (spell?) it's spreading like crazy. Good luck today, my thoughts go out to you and your family for their safety .

Hello!
While laptops are convenient, I'm still a fan of my PC and keyboard. Having a super geek guru means my trash bin holds more than most peoples entire system. Talking mega giga bytes, it's pretty incredible. We also have several laptops, one for each of us and one currently on loan to a neighbor who's PC died and is too old to try to fix. Yea, this is what happens when 'puter geeks are in your life. My daughter is an arts major with emphasis in music and a minor in computer science, and with my bf being a bigwig geek at his job, I'm pretty well set for anything computer related. I have found Linux OS to be my best friend, my laptop runs an older version of windows only cuz of my one computer game addiction - roller coaster tycoon II hehe. How's work? Hows the PT coming? Hows the turtles? Has your son shipped off yet, I forget when you said he was. I'm in for a tough week, I realized this morning that our old dog (as in 17) won't be able to wait until next month to be put down as we planned, he's really going downhill fast and I don't want him to suffer. So, I'll have to be the one to deal with taking him to the vet. He's actually my kids' dog, been the best kid dog ever too, used to pull them on their skateboards, always ready to go when they were for anything and has a lot of miles on his feet over the years indeed. We were going to wait until my daughter left for MD early next month, but he keeps falling down (bad hips) and well, he's ancient and lived a great life indeed. Had him since he was 3 mos old. I will never get any type of Akita mix again though, they NEVER stop SHEDDING EVER. It's only degrees of bad to worse seasonally. I have never ever had to deal with so much dog hair and I've had dogs my whole life! Jeesh! I think I could make an adult Pomeranian every week from his brushings! Guess that's all my babble for now, hope you are hanging in there and getting some relief.

Sounds like your manager is a p-ick. There are so many people in supervisor jobs that shouldn't be. They treat employees like their little minions. Glad to hear the meds your on are helping a little. Any relief is good. I feel so bad for you and your wife seeing yet another child go off overseas. Having an 18 yr. old son, I can emphasize! How long is he going to be gone for? And how long for the other son? Well, today I'm going to a fish store that's having a big frag sale today. I'm sure it's going to be mobbed . Hope there is something left for me by the time I get there! Last time they had a big sale, the line was going halfway around the building before they opened. Hope you have a nice week end, talk soon

Hello!
at least PT keeps you busy and moving in a beneficial way. been busy around here, still need to get my tanks clean but not sure I can handle it this afternoon. My morning has already wiped me out and now it's already almost 2pm, and I need to get prepping for dinner now, ugh! My son will be 20 tomorrow so our weekend is going to be very busy, but at least it will be lots of fun. Not sure I'm ready to be the mom of all these 'old' kids hehe. Sure wish we'd get more rain, I like rain, a lot! But, lots of flowers are blooming away and my mom's little garden looks like a jungle, her basil is amazingly tasty too. Look forward to getting some green tomatoes, my kids really like'em fried, funny enough. Never thought they would but the first time I made them years ago, now every summer they nag me for more. Well, gotta get ready to grab the couch and enjoy some reading time, not feeling very energetic any more and I think I'll read until the book reads me hehe. Got any plans for the weekend?

How's your foot feeling today? What's causing your tension ? I had to go to the dr.s yesterday, I've been having insomnia a lot , so I got something to help, but I'm only going to take it if I really need it. I don't want to be stuck in a little hotel room next week with three other people and not be able to sleep! I had to wait two hours in the office! I guess they had a couple of emergencies that set them back. I wish they would call to let people know so we don't have to waste so much time waiting. Blaa, humid and hot again, had about one or two days where it was cooler. I really don't like summer, except on vacation! Oh well, better get going, got a lot to do today. Take care of yourself!

Don't like it! Any way, did you find anything out from your m.r.i.? Knowing how dr.s are, you won't know untill next week. I can't beleive they haven't put you on disability. I know people with far less problems that are on it. Can't figure that out. Not having good luck Witt he tank lately. I'm guessing that golby is long dead, and last week end I bought 2 cardnels and one diel the other day. Made the crabs happy. : / That's to bad about your sons, I don't know how I would do if mine was gone like that. I'm sure all you can do is worry about them. We have to let them live their lives, but it's tough as a parent. Well, take care of yourself, talk soon.

Hello!
Glad to hear docs are trying new things to try to get your health in better control. Wow, 6 more years. My dad was Army for 27 yrs, he did a lot of cool stuff too. He was one of the ones who brought the hostages home from Iran in the Carter administration. He nursed a can of coke written in Aramaic to bring to me cuz they weren't allowed to buy anything from a gift shop or have any evidence they were there at all. Over 60 hrs he carried and nursed that thing for me! Sadly, it got taken out with trash by someone who didn't realize it's importance. Its hot and smoky here, there's some really bad fires in the next county and so our entire valley is one big haze of choking smoke. and hot. I'm so ready for Fall to come! Hopefully we'll get some rains this weekend and not just lightening storms starting more fires, the whole area is in a fire weather warning watch etc etc. Otherwise all is fairly well here, been busy with chores and my video game so I can avoid the heat. Hope you have a good weekend!

Hi again
Glad your blood work came back normal. I can imagine your job is not easy by far! Have you considered trying to get a job at a service desk in a dealership or something that's easier on you? I don't know how it is where you live, but around here you can't spit without hitting a car dealership ! As far as my tank goes, I'm so mad, I bought a sand sifter type golby for $30 and I've not seen it since. I can only assume its dead. I did get 2 bangi cardinals and there doing fine. Figures, the cheap fish are fine, the expensive one not! Oh well, I always feel bad when a fish doesn't make it. Keep me updated, talk soon!

Hi
How are you feeling these days? All is well here, just sick of sweating! I only like summer when I'm on vacation! I like spring and fall. Well, I don't have to work on Saturdays any more untill the fall,, they cut our hours big time. Cheap company.... First they took away our vacation pay, and they only gave me a 20 cent raise. Big whoop. Good thing I have another part time job. I think when ever the time comes when my son moves out, got to find a better job. Well, stay cool, hope your doing better.

Hello!
I've been reading about how bad the weather has affected so much of the states this year. Our pollen count here is insane, most of it blowing in from the mtns and Cali, ugh. Makes it hard to keep track of allergens when you have no idea what is out there. We are fortunate in this area that power outages aren't very common and very very rarely last more than a few hours. I'm amazed at how many are still w/o power, hopefully things will calm down enough for the power to get returned quickly. We are wishing we'd get some storms here, it's so dry along with temps creeping up into the low 90's. I'm going to be wishing for Fall the next 8 weeks, I do not like summer! Hope your dad gets his power back sooner than next week, good grief!

Hello!
We are happy that so far we've only had a few 90+ days, but alas, the days of triple digits will be coming along in another month, unless we get lucky and it'll just rain instead and turn this desert into a wetland hehe. Arthritis is just not a fun thing to live with, sorry to hear about that. Glad to hear the turtle is doing well. All furs, fins and scales are doing pretty good here, and people too. Now, to win a lottery hehe.

hi
I'm sorry to hear about the crap your going through right now. Do you know of anyone near you that could help you with your tanks? Does your wife help with that? If I lived closer, I would . I haven't been on f.c. much, our computer has been giving us problems. Just dont have the $ to do anything about it at the moment. Well, off to work, if you can, let me know how the doctors visit went today.

A little more time tonight. How are you doing? It's really hot here. About 100 degrees but guess what! In 2 days it's supposed to freeze again. And then, 3 days after that, it's supposed to be triple digit weather. That's what we get for living in the mountains.

Thanks for noticing my solar eclipse photos. I'm glad you like them. That was so awesome to experience. We got the funny glasses so we could see the whole thing. Plus, as you can see from the photos, we were dead centre for prime viewing.

I actually took the photos with the funny glasses held over the camera lens with one hand and a finger on the shutter with the other hand. Crude and cumbersome, but it worked!

Fortunately, we do not have any wild fires here. I sure hope they stay away. Once they start we usually have smoke for the whole summer until we get some rain the late autumn. It's not much fun.

I'm sorry to hear about your arms and fingers not working properly. Isn't there any type of exercise you can do to help keep your joints in better condition? I can't imagine a stroke doing this months later. It seems there must be something else involved. I am sorry.

My best to you and your wife. I know it's difficult so just write when you can. I am always happy to hear from you.

Sorry to hear about your coral. Sometimes it's better to leave things alone, ya know, if it ain't broke, don't fix it kinda thing. But as I know, it's not always were ya want it. I have one mushroom that insists its going to the back of the tank where I can't see it! Yeah, I only have the one kid. That's enough! Lol. I don't know how people with more can afford it. In fact, I need to go wake him up for work. I got teen boys sleeping all over the place, they had a big sleep over last night and now the house is trashed... Enjoy the rest of the week end!

Hello!
glad to hear the turtle is healing. Yea, it's to be 90 today, but we don't have much humidity so it's a dry heat indeed. Means it's easier to cool down, not sure I could live in really high humidity with high temps. Been to many places to visit that are that way and thought I was going to melt! I don't understand why power companies are so expensive, they have us right where they want us, we need them! Someday I hope to get our home more 'green' and spend less with them a month for sure. Have to get my water changes done today, ran out of time yesterday. Poor fish!

Hi
Cool new pics!! Have a nice week end? I spent mine working on the tank. As I was working on stuff, I smelled an electrical problem , then the circuit blew. Still can't figure out what happened. Now I'm worried my condo will be smoldering when I get home today! This place was built in the early 70's and they didn't put enough outlets in it, so the ones we have are loaded. It might be cheaper to move than hire an electrician ! Keeping my fingers crossed nothing else happens. Hope you have a good week!

Hello!
glad to hear the eye is doing fine. The eclipse was pretty cool indeed. Science and nature are always a big hit with this family. Weather is cooler and rather breezy today, hopefully it's bringing in the predicted rains for Fri. Been so busy lately and I'm just exhausted, but alas, no rest for the wicked, have more to do today. Thurs looks like it'll be a quieter day, and have no plans for Fri other than enjoy the rains, or the threat of them. I need a day of peace!
