Well, it's going to rain again. The drizzle has already begun. The plants are growing, and my yard will soon turn into a rainforest. Climate change is occurring. NOAA says things are getting warmer... and wetter, depending upon where you live. For us here in Central PA, we seem to be getting both blessings: higher temps and rain. We are turning tropical. That means mangoes, and lemons, and limes will be common. Florida? That state is going to cook. So are parts of Texas. That large migration south will soon reverse as the temps continue to rise. Change is upon us.
The Baby's Breath in my tank is gone. Replaced with Jungle Vallisneria and a Windelov Java Fern. I think it looks much better. The fish now have room to swim. Oh, and the fish aren't mutating out of shape. The tank's acrylic, so there are no framed corners.
Work is normal; beginning to slow down I believe. While our garden department is hopping, our overall sales figures are not as high as they were 4 months ago. As the country continues to slowly open up, this slow down will continue. People no longer working at home and having to commute again are going to have less time on their hands. They will have less time for home improvements and so those plans are being moved to the back burner. This was to be expected, though a cursory look at our plan shows our corporate offices were hoping the spending would continue longer. Instead, sales are becoming a steady simmer, which is good for a beef stew, but it's not like the rolling boil you want for cooking pasta.
As for politics, evidently a vast majority of Republicans want Loser #45 to remain active in the party. They have no problem with the fact that his, and their, anger cooked over on January 6. They are actively pursuing the belief in The Big Lie. The reality that a sizeable chunk of Republicans changed their affiliation after the Insurrection means nothing to them. For them, volume is everything. Anger is the tasty sauce they lavish on their burgers after taking them from the grill... anger, and a lot of moldy cheese.
Love the tank! And the new plants look fantastic.ReplyDelete
As for the Repugs, you are right, for them it's NUMBERS and Cheeto showed them he could get them, so they'll overlook treason and corruption. Always.
And every time they lose it will be because of election fraud, their lie for life.Delete
Curses.... the pandemic for ending. I'm over the traffic already. That was nice while it lasted.ReplyDelete
The tank looks great! What a difference.
There's some work that needs to be done on the tank, but the difference is like night and day.Delete
I'm waiting for someone in the GOP, anyone other than Cheney and Kinzinger, to grow some balls.ReplyDelete
Forget about Mitt, he's only about himself.
But the others, the rational ones, need to stand up.
That won't happen until he begins to lose his grip.Delete
@bob - THE GQP HAS NO BALLS!ReplyDelete
RTG got shot #2 yesterday; he is now fully vaxxed.
Congrats!! This is how we outlive the MAGA's.Delete
The tank looks great! I did wonder about the look of the fish heh hey.ReplyDelete
Yeah, unlike a glass tank, there are curves rather than corners.Delete
I always thought I'd like to live somewhere tropical (Cairns, far north Queensland springs to mind) but I'm not so sure now as I start whingeing as soon as the temperatures start hitting 28°C!ReplyDelete
As of yet, the cold doesn't bother me, of course that may changeDelete
