My break was over 10 years.. I only just started riding again in my second year university bc it was far cheaper than paying bus fares everyday!

Signatures have a size limit, Just keep making the font smaller and spread it out more. The best way to check if its working is to save it and go into the forums to check...

One example I really liked was about prairie dogs in the plains. The natives there had a crazy old warning, "if you kill off the prairie dogs there will be no one to cry for rain." Well this is obviously this most ridiculous thing ever, scientists decided there can't be any connection between the two! So they exterminated the prairie dogs in order to protect the land for cattle. These lands (in Arizona) have today turned from lush prairie lands to a dry dead desert! Another elder had said that the burrows of the prairie dogs actually would bring up groundwater to keep the land alive. Without the burrows providing moisture the land couldn't last.
Anyways it could be a huge coincidence, but the book goes on to talk about are we crazy if we think hundreds of similar cases of "old knowledge" being right could possibly all be coincidence. It's all quite thought provoking.

Wow that's so interesting!! You know, Europeans only came in the 1600's or later. So, for millions of years (thousands probably for the prairie dogs) humans have inhabited the land and they understood its patterns and susceptibilities. I believe them.

I think I am going to give up on fish or seriously lower the number that I have after these guys all pass on. Too many sick fish.

Opal essence - no idea what her issue is - looks like a baloon
Mr Magic Shrooms - clamped and lethargic. Mostly floats next to the heater or at the surface. He is also the oldest - got him in Alaska in 2011.
Ba Sing Se - dosent move too much but I dont think he can see too well.
Lucky stars - looks like he swallowed a pea

Sluggles - healthy
Phinneas - Healthy
Ferb- Healthy
baron Von Fishie Fins - Healthy
El Kabong - Healthy

All girls seem OK for now
Fluttershy
Apple Bloom
Princess Azula
unnamed girl

That is highly irritating (politely putting it). I have done that a few times and you kind of just sit back with your eye twitching because seconds before it was 'too long'.
Tell me about it. Its not completly flush aganist the tank but the gap isnt big enough for them to squeeze through. The other dividers are also home made but I bough them off ebay. The binders are thicker so they work alot better.

I see your pic of a bird and I stare a the soft beach below and am gripped with jealousy.

I have baby shrimplets!!! I saw 2 so far. Thought one was an exceptionally large cyclops. It was shrimp shaped though. They are too cute.
