My grandmother, my maternal grandmother, was a devout Catholic, and a retired nurse. She was your stereotypical grandmother. Little, white haired, and as sweet as sugar. She made lots of good food, and she baked things that were out of this world. I have yet to eat a pie that holds a candle to hers. There have been close seconds, though. She even sewed a lot. Her favorite was needlework and doilies. I have some of her work hanging on my bedroom wall, in fact. She has since passed though.

My paternal grandmother, is still alive. She is a laugh and a half. She is a no nonsense, doesn't skirt around things, not afraid to get her fingers dirty type of grandmother. She used to teach in a one room school house, across the way from Grandpa's family farm. They married and had 6 kids, three of which were identical female triplets. She helped moved the family to Grandpa's family farm while 8 months pregnant with them. They were to term and weighed a healthy 5-6 pounds each. She and Grandpa are about 82 years old, with Grandma being a full month older than Grandpa and have spent 61 years of wedded bliss with each other.

My maternal grandmother died when I was 12 and my paternal grandmother died the year before that, I think. My maternal grandmother was a good person who loved her family. I didn't really know my paternal grandmother except she spoke Spanish to us and we couldn't understand her. lol My paternal grandfather died when I was 5 and I don't really remember him and my dad's father died when my dad was 7 years old. I heard from my older cousins that he was meaner than a snake and he was an alcoholic.

Do any of you use BettaMin tropical crisps? I posted about it in the betta care section and got zero answers. I got some and I had no idea they were flakes.

They're not the most nutritious but some bettas just love 'em. Just feed a few flakes, crumbled a little, and see if anyone likes them. I never could get any of my bettas to eat flakes but some people have bettas who only eat flakes.

Tiki, cool pics. :)

do they have the freeze dried shrimp in them? If so I have them as well. Sometimes i use that instead of the pellets for variety. I fed them to the baby when the first bites became to small and the pelets were still too big
