    I had a lifeproof case on it. I got a new lifeproof case for it but during the taping of the second video I found out that the battery door seal was bad.

    I haven't been on for a while, so I thought I would check in. I made a underwater video this August of my pond during feeding time. . I took it with my iphone but that phone got ruined and I wasn't sure how to get the video off of it so its the best I got. Just bear with me for the first...

    Leaf Net

    I had that same issue this past spring with my bog plants. I wasn't able to get out there before everything died off so I had a bunch of dead plant matter and leafs in the bog. I leave both my pumps running all winter so the pond doesn't freeze as thick.

    There were about 60 in the air at once. It's an amazing sight to see that many. They come from all over to fly.

    Haver, yes you are right. It poured here this evening and then it cleared up. Miss Eden wanted to play outside so being the parents that we are, we let her. She was stomping in all the puddles, playing in the mud, just having a blast. She is only young once so we will let her be a kid and...

    Make sure the disconnect box on the side of the house is turned on and check to see if the 2 small wires going to the AC have broke. Those are the low voltage wires that run from the furnace. Also make sure that you did indeed turn the AC on the thermostat to AC and not just the fan on. We...

    I have never had a hummingbird feeder so I'm not sure how long it will take for them to find it. My guess is that since its right by the pond they should find it easy.

    Did some more work by the pond this weekend. Got my hummingbird feeder up, got new mulch down, planted some new flowers and grasses and put down 2lbs of wild flower seeds behind the waterfall right next to the fence line that backs up to the county fair grounds. We shall see what comes up...
