parrot_bay requested a picture of Laurel's (imaginary) little sister.



According to Laurel, who drew the picture yesterday, her little sister is sitting, Laurel is in the middle and I'm standing on the right. She doesn't remember why I have arms but no legs.

...

spasmsproject was interested in seeing something or someone I'm really proud of.

I immediately thought of these:



I think Vogon took a big chance when he asked me "If I send you plane tickets, would you come visit?". I was amazed that he already had that much faith in my word that I would and I'm proud that he took that chance on us.

If that's a bit too cheesy, I'm also really proud of these:



I'd never tended a hibiscus plant before and was afraid it wouldn't thrive or might even die, but it's done beautifully and loves the nitrogen-rich water from fishtank water changes.

If you'd like to make a request for me to photograph something, please comment to my 15 June post.

laurel did a great job on that picture...notice how sweet and innocent she looks, how concerned you look, and the sheer mischief on the face of the imaginary friend!

jason's childhood friend was slimer, from the ghost busters. ew.

Laurel draws well. I think she might just draw better than me. The other piccies are cool too. Share more.

I'm jealous. I have a black thumb. I got a potted daisy plant recently, any suggestions?

Water from the fish tank changes! Good grief, why haven't I thought of that?

I wonder if there are any circumstances where that would be harmful? I would love to be able to dump the water from our changes into my garden instead of into the drain, and not spend so much time filling the watering cans from the tap (our sprinkler system is currently broken and needs to be looked at).

Yes, the times you wouldn't want to use fish tank water are:

- When you've used certain medicines, mostly antibiotics, but to be environmentally safe don't use hospital water at all, ever. Basically, if you have sick fish I recommend using a small (5 or 10 gal, at the most) hospital tank with nothing in it but a simple bubble-powered filter and then throwing away the water (down the drain). Fill the hospital tank with water from your main tank to start, then change out 10-15% of it daily or every other day (unless otherwise noted for the particular treatment) until the treatment is complete and all symptoms are gone.

- If you've used some of the more harsh ph stabilizers; I do not recommend these anyway, but you'll know because it will say on the packaging, "Do not use with live plants"... these chemicals are bad for your fish, as well, so avoid them -- no, really, smoking is bad, too, so is anything radioactive, so no plutonium in the tank.

- If you use a lot of salt (mollies and other brackish fish really love salt and actually require it to breed). This one should be fairly obvious, it'll poison your soil. But, as long as you change your water out at least once a week and use less than a few tablespoons of salt, you should be fine.

How sweet a picture of her imaginary little sister, my daughter asks me when he little brother is going to get here everyday. Well, I am not pregnant, so I have to explain it to her. Then she tells me, well maybe tomorrow. I just love the innocence.
