Had to remove the background mural from my 20-gallon-high because water got between it and the glass. I was getting tired of looking at it, anyway, and thinking how something new would be refreshing. I think I'll be making my own background mural, just as I have for my 65-gallon. Wiped the water off the glass, and looking through the clear panel, I can really see the diatoms. Even after wiping them off with a mild scrub pad, I didn't get them all.
This Friday -- we go to Lewiston and pick up my tank! FINALLY !!!
So, now I've got a new art project to work on. Meanwhile, if I keep the room lights off and the tank light on, the back panel almost looks opaque, anyway.
Guess I wasn't as careful about wiping down all the external surfaces after the last cleaning.
More later ...

I started my blog about my cookiejar project. Most likely no one will read it except some stray googler looking for one of the recipes, but couple people suggested I do it, so fine.. .I'm doing it.
Normally I do my waterchanges on Monday, but since I'm expecting to have company next Monday, I'm waiting a couple days so that while each will be a bit longer than a week between changes, it won't be one skipped week this way just two a couple days longer than a week ones with larger changes on either side.
I have dishes to do after last nights baking. So with that I shall probably end up doing lots of house cleaning and try to finish off the laundry and put it away.
I did finally identify the "robin-like" bird yesterday afternoon as a Spotted Towhee, and my Stellars Jays seem to have returned... which means of course I need to refill the birdfeeder.

Had to go and buy a new computer. Came back from a volleyball game last night to my computer frozen. No biggy, restart it. Wait no...No restard. Never turned back on after that. Did everything possible.
As some of you may know. A college student without a laptop/technology these days, is a college student bound to fail. Ended up dropping 1500+ on a new mac.
Still getting used to it from the transition but so far, its great.

Love the Towhees! I also had no idea what they were when I first got here. I love watching them do their little hopping/scratching routine in the dirt, so cute.

Apparently it's common enough that there are some sound bites on the web - pretty comical!

After several days of working on a paint-by-numbers kit, marathoning CSI:NY, and watching my fish until they tell me to bug off, I have my computer working again. Am reinstalling programs and copying the music off my RCA Lyra Opal mp3 player. It's a start at rebuilding my collection.
