Sorry to hijack so many threads this late at night. We just got back to Htown after 10 days away, since IKE, didnt take a hike. Very lucky to be right in the teeth of it, with only some old(since Alicia) fence down and a few branches from the red maple in the front yard. The neighborhood looks pretty shoddy, but not like the poor folks in Crystal Beach, Galveston, Bridge City, others. My wife was at the pond in Miss., and had to prepare for Gustov; I stayed nort of town with son and family. They were fortunate, too. Then headed to Miss. where lots of mowing, bush hogging, and tree trimming awaited. The weather has been great, though. Unfortunately, when the weather gets good, the hay fever sets in. Such is life.

Glad you didn't lose it like a lot of people just South of you did. Yeah, I'm popping allergy pills.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

I don't think any apoligies are necessary, burger. Glad the damage to your place was minimal.

In my humble opinion, if someone is so concerned about a minor thread highjack, they have consider what they've paid for the ability to make a post here in the first place (of course, I also say this considering that I highjack threads too!).

Not to worry about thread hijacking, BM. All is forgiven.

Did you know that in 1741, Captain Rice set sail from Antigua with a mutinous crew? He never reached his destination.

I'm getting a lot of algae and film on the surface of my pond lately. A bunch of water ran through my little pond during the 16" rain event from tropical storm Fay and I wonder if that had anything to do with it. My watershed is mostly agricultural land and I imagine there was a lot of fertilizer on the ground that time of year.

Glad to hear damage was minimal, Burg. If we can hold our breath a little while, hurricane season will be over... for a while.

And that has something to do with the price of Rice?


GW, if you do a Google search, you may find a forum about ponds and such.

Ah, Moby Dick, I love that book, and the Led Zepplin song now that I mention it. John Henry Bonham aka "Bonzo"

That depends on how many coconuts it is carrying.

Speaking of bars, if the conference is held at the Arlington Sheraton next year I sure hope the bar has been completed.

Oh and speaking of flop eared rabbits. A word to the wise, you need to be very careful with your forage breeding program. Too much inbreeding can lead to highly agressive KILLER BUNNIES.

Cuba? Really? I have found he is so unapprochable after winning the Oscar and really quick to file a restraining order I might add.

Theo look, in order to maintain air speed velocity a sparrow has to flap his wings.....Wait, do you mean an African Swallow or a European Swallow??

If a tree falls in the forest, and there's nobody around to hear it, will my baked beans burn on the stove at say 450F?

Contrary to what you may have read somehwere on here, Canadians do in fact litter. Just look at "our" geese.
