    Aquarium substrate

    nothing wrong with those! ;) i think the sarasa comets are beautiful when you can get the orange areas to be brilliant red just from the quality foods that are out there. koi just come in some really neat patterns & the black patches don't fade.

    Link and "suggestions?"

    yep, Google Analytics & all the other trackers that hide behind the scenes. when i used Firefox i had a program downloaded called Ghostery that showed all the trackers on the pages & the most were from Google followed by all the social media trackers.

    A Special Gift

    good use too is if you have a sick/injured bird you need to separate out from the flock till they are better. i saw some cute little coops being sold in my area this summer & thought i just needed to know the prices just to see how cheap they would be. :\ $500! looked like they could only hold...

    Aquarium substrate

    yep! can't have anything smaller than their mouth in that tank or it gets eaten in an instant. i did have a couple koi in there when the cats were smaller and koi larger than them and the koi tails always looked torn up. then notice the cats were chasing the tails trying to eat them. out the koi...

    Aquarium substrate

    i used FloraMax in my 20g planted but the 55g catfish tank i've used a crushed coral gravel instead-it was cheaper. i only have java fern in the catfish tank with little light & the stuff flourishes in it. my 20g has more plants that like low light so they thrive in there with a blue & white LED...

    When TV Was Free

    yep. we only pay to have the internet-DSL modem for under $40/month from the phone company. we also got rid of the land line phone & each have a cell phone at $12.50/month per phone. i figured since i work all day long i'm never really at home so why bother with a land line. with Roku & some...

    Strongest fruit trees for my area??

    if you are looking for apple/pear trees that are dwarf you really should be looking at the rootstock they are grafted to. pears use OHxF87 as a 'dwarf' rootstock and it is relatively easy to find if you want to graft in the late winter/early spring. i don't recommend using quince for pears since...
