Yesterday I drove down to That Fish Place. After reading Jennifer's blog about the difficulties Greg was having setting up the school aquarium, I should have been better prepared for all of the holes on their shelves... and empty fish tanks. They, too, were Essential, I was told "and everybody decided lockdown was a good time to start a new hobby." As a result, my tank looks a bit sparse. I only picked up 3 plants. There had a tank with a small number of small Discus, but $50 a piece was a bit pricey. I opted for 4 teeny, weeny Koi Angelfish, each about the size of a quarter. Believe me, that's about all they had in freshwater fish.
I also rode 19 miles up the coastline of Corsica yesterday. My legs were a bit achy, but otherwise I was fine. I'm doing the Trek Challenge again this year. I need to ride 100 miles in July. So far I've got 61 under my belt. One guy taking part in the challenge has already ridden over 1300 miles... yeah, that's right, over 1300 miles. And it's only July 9. Can we talk obsessive / compulsive ?
Betsy DeVos has decided all children must go back to school this fall. This is coming from a woman who's children have gone to prestigious private schools. She is nothing more than a wealthy bitch. A woman who believes her buckos in the bank make her an authority needs to be removed from power. One thing the Idiot Jerk's administration had proven time and time again, most wealthy people are cold, ruthless, and dumb as bricks.
And, of course, there are Covid 19 spikes all over the place. In Tulsa, for example. Can you imagine that? City officials are saying their spike is due to the protests and the rally, in that order. For some reason, protests have not led to major spikes. This is interesting, since there have been some very major protests. However, in Tulsa they're claiming their spike was due to the protests first... and then the rally. Republicans... always needing to blame somebody else.
For those who are interested, this is what the tank looks like so far.
More will be added.
Nice bucket of water you have there :).ReplyDelete
Thanks... I'd like my 2nd government check now.Delete
Ohhh I like your tank!ReplyDelete
And I can imagine that many people decided they needed to find a hobby and went for fish this quarantine. I think it may be better this way, though. You can customize it little by little.
And IMPOTUS is stongarming the schools to open because he does not give a shit about people. All he wants is the economy to 'bounce back' because it's the only thing he could brag about. I hope it totally backfires and governors do not fall for his mafia boss tactics. Ugh.
Covid-19 has not peaked. We're still in the first wave.
And Betsy DeVille makes my skin crawl.
The tank's fun! And DeVos is truly evil and her Karma's as bad as the Idiot Jerks.Delete
nice start to the fishy world.ReplyDelete
Yep, it's a beginning.Delete
Betsy Devos...ugh. I think all of those GOP people should be forced to put their children in public schools in September. Maybe the tune of opening totally would change.ReplyDelete
She is the whore of privileged authority.Delete
But by all means get the kids back in schools so wecan spread this thing around the country better and fatser.ReplyDelete
After the bit with the kids in cages, I'd have though you'd have realized that Republicans just don't care.Delete
Don't ruin the post by mentioning Besty's name From day one, she's the one I hate the most!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
The tank looks great!!! What are the red things that look like sponges in a glass?
Actually, they're red gravel. I put it in some of my grandmother's champagne glasses. Eventually they'll have plants growing from them.Delete
Very pretty! I love koi angelfish, you have good taste! Discus are always going to be that pricey, unfortunately. As they go up in size they go right up in price, too. It's probably better to cycle the tank with less delicate, expensive fish anyway.ReplyDelete
Yeah, that was my idea. And the thing about discus is that most of them are domestically raised now.Delete
