The "cheap" feeder comets at the pet store here are like $1.99 each. To get a comet that's 4" lone, you can count on paying $7.99. To get one that's like 8", you're looking at paying $14.99. I can see why people would be willing to pay gas to come get comets.
I have been so thrilled with my lilies this year. REALLY reaffirms my decision to spend the time and money on a lily pond when I redid my Koi pond. I figured that I would like it because I liked it so much last year. Honestly, I'm enjoying the lily pond as much or more than the Koi pond.
I put motion sensitive switches in our kitchen and dining room. They made a HUGE difference. I also put in a digital thermostat (timing controlled) to control heat/air. Big difference in usage. The ones that I bought for our kitchen and dining room work great in daylight.
