I found these cheap dollar store dog nail trimmers will nip lotus seed ends .I soak the seeds for 3 or 4 days and pull them out and just nip the ends .one of big mommas kittens eating with her

when ponding you need to look at things with a different eye .Better than a bag to put the stuff in and lasts a lot longer

storm is over but my sister had a heart attack at work .Lucky she works in the emergency room of the hospital because they caught it fast .I had just got the preformed pond in but not in the ground and with out power for over 2 days it gave me water to flush the toilets .poor wet hummingbird .The creek across the road flooded to the road and yet owner still wants to sell those lots .I warn people who look at the lots .I had to use my old filter and cap the pipe coming out of it and hand fill it with water to aerate the pond .Once I filled it I pulled off the cap and water came out and filtered and aerated the water and no fish lost

Nice pictures @sissy but so sorry to hear about your sister/friend having a heart attack. Good she was in the hospital so she got the best of care so fast. Hope she makes a full recovery and now she can somehow protect herself from having another one.

Goodness I hope your sister gets well again, she must have gotten a fright. She sure was in the right place for such an emergency.

Best wishes to your sister Sissy.

One of Hubbies cousins just had a massive one. They are shipping him to a hospital that can do surgery.

I told her 20 years working under stress in an emergency room is getting to her .She has 2 other things that she is licensed for in the hospital do that .She can draw blood and she has a pharmacy license .Now she may have to listen .She is only 50 so she needs to remember this is not good and thank you all for the wish's .I just hope she listens to me and her heart ,especially her heart .We just lost Joey my brother this past spring and he would have been 47 last month .My brother Glenn has heart problems also and had his heart attack 4 years ago at the age of 42 .My mother in law had 9 children and we have lost 3 of them so far .

Hope she listens @sissy
Do what her doc says and take her meds that I'm sure she will be given. Wonder if she had any warning signs?

She has been complaining of indigestion for 2 weeks and one of the ER doctors gave her something but it did not help .I think it is stress and since Joey's death it has been stressful for the whole family .That is why we did the family reunion .We thought it would help us heal
