Happy Birthday, DD1!

If we all chip in to send you a gift, do you want us to get you some rain or some snow?

Thanks all. 81 today


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.

A little story....

At one of the last PB Conventions, I think it was in Texas, Al (FireIsHot) and I were talking to a young man near the Pond Boss booth. This young man was looking to get into the pond aeration business with a sole focus on fountains, as opposed to subsurface and surface systems.

Now, it was clear to Al and I that this young man did not present himself very well; he was a bit slothenly in a stained maroon T-shirt, and he had a tentative nature to him, to which Al and I could clearly see. So naturally, Al and I were being very responsive to him, and perhaps treating him with some kid gloves.

And then Guv walks over and interjects himself into the conversation. Al and I explain to Guv what this young man is endeavoring to do for a career path. Guv proceeds to tell this young man that fountain aeration is worthless, and is a myth, and that nobody should be selling them as 'aeration,' and walks away leaving Al and I there to gather up the remnants of this young man's being.

Now, as this young man was standing before the three of us, I could also see his spirit/soul right there next to him. Poor kid's spirit just evaporated right there into thin air with a mild fizzling sound.

Al and I wished the young man good luck and gently left the scene.

HB Dave, it looks like you're getting a tad bit of rain.

That story is true, but I might change that to "Al and I wished the young man good luck and slowly backed away from the scene."

I miss the conferences, good times were had.

Al, got about .4 inch. Still pretty grim.

Sunil, you must have drinking beer. I have no recollection of this discussion.

Actually, I do remember popping his bubble and saving him some money.

That's picking the low hanging fruit.
