Besides form coming down from my second favorite holiday (I want another Thanksgiving), and having a birthday a couple weeks back. 34 now...halfway to 68. Hooray! I have been working (as usual) and playing my bass. (love it!), but my latest thing has been the purchase of a 75 gallon fishtank. I always loved keeping fishes, and the largest tank I ever had was a 15 gal. one. I always wanted a huge tank, and this was the largest one I could find. In a few years I may try to do a saltwater tank, but for now I am raising African Cichlids. These are a fish I always wanted to try keeping. Given their variety and bright colors, they resemble a saltwater fish, and the way I have the tank set up it looks like one now. ...so anyway I got 10 of them the other day, and we are having a great time watching and feeding etc. them. Van loves it when they come over to say 'hi' which this type of fish will do with very little prompting.
