Immortal Alien Tilapia

Immortal Alien Tilapia. Yes that is right I have now learned that those aliens who I have written about before are immortal. I know some of you have joined the resistance yet but I know have proof that they are Aliens and immortal. Here is how I have found out. I built 5 tanks in my greenhouse for what I thought was just fish. I only have 2 of them lined to hold water. All of my fish (ha they still think I am not on to them) in one tank due to my sloppy tank lining job. The second tank starts… Continue

Scribed by the Sculpturerist Apprentice

Alas learning is the path we all must travel to reach the end of our inter-kingdom epicurean quest. I had the luck of working under the tutelage of the master water sculpturerist. On a past visit to the outdoor art exhibit disguised as an Aquaponics Garden in Orlando. I quickly recognized the work of a water Alchemist. One can can make the element move in mysterious ways. I was accepted as an momentary apprentice from by this master and she came of to my outdoor man cave to help me learn her… Continue

The sweet seduction of running my fingers through the red stuff.

I have been an avid loyal devote of the vertigro stacks. Then I built the float tanks below the hanging vertigro stacks to collect the recalculating flow. Sue the float tank looks interesting and I like putting my feet in it when I have to get to the south wall of the greenhouse. Then I came up with the great idea of building a gravel bed to be the filter for the first stop of the fish tank water. Little did I know that when I bought 10 cubic feet of Aliflor what I was in for. So I built the… Continue

Healing through laughter. Those precious moments.

I never knew how rewarding and trying it was going to be when I became a GRANDFATHER. I have bloged before about how wonderful it is being with my grandson. Well my fellow seniors ( I like that title) send me lots of jokes etc. So here I will post a few that help me remember why I can get away with my wit. Here is one I got today. It reminds me of the many times those young-ins try to help me with my iphone. I just smile. Having been an Apple system engineer for dozens of years I think I can… Continue

My love affair with the perfect tool

Yes we all have that perfect tool. The one we are proud of and treat like jewelry. Alas we are bigamist and have several of them. Even the old ones. I have a collection of my grandfathers tools he used to build his bungalow colony in upstate NY. The ones he taught me to use as a small child. The wood handle screwdrivers and Chisels. I use them with tears of nostalgia. I also have several of his wood planes. Those I keep on display. But alas they are not the ones I am writing about.
