Yay to the kijiji-soap fund :)

Yes, I never understood the outport families for so many years but a lot of them are actually doing a lot better than families in St. John's and the other urban centres. Outports have self-subsistence (little gardens and farms, they still pick berries and make clothes and blankets and stuff to sell in farmer markets and flea markets) whereas, city dwellers rely completely on welfare. Cost of living is rising here bc of the oil boom (muskrat falls and the oil rigs) which makes politicians rich and the poor poorer. I know it's like this everywhere, Newfoundland is the poorest province bc of the Federal Govt under Harper and his childish tiff with our last premier Danny WIlliams. Any Canadian will remember their fist fighting and the whole voting campagns and stuff that was happening??

It's like 14 degrees here. A little rainy bc we cannot have nice things in Newfoundland weather :P

Pig butchering?? I need to leave now. Almost as bad as the types of people who, upon learning I have a pet rabbit, tell me about rabbit hunting and skinning them and such.

Politics, politics. There is no perfect government system. :( That's why everyone should choose me as dictator of the world. :)

Seriously, rat, stay away from my bamboo!!!

That reminds me, I need to find a replacement strap for my camera before tonight.

Why do people ask for help if they refuse to give all the info needed to make an accurate assessment of whats going on?

I cannot stress how important heaters are to my sister. She just says her bettas are fine without them bc "they're always fine"..

I like my jungle tank though. Hope they establish and grow :)

The big show is tonight! Brother said I could watch from backstage to see how it's done but I think I may want to watch it from the audience since I've never seen a light show live, only on video.

For all who don't know, my brother is a member of the Joshua Light Show, a special effects group started back in the '70's. He's sort of the founder's protege.
