Beautiful couple days though a bit chilly yesterday. The fish are all out have found some fuzz on one of the fish might be fin rot . It was a long winter here with a foot of ice and it appears I didn't get all of the contaminents last fall from some plants or possibly a fish.View attachment 137595

Thanks @JamieB
I thought as my wife did at the time that I was out of my mind. I had to split that thing I believe it was into 5 sections to where I was able to carry it out of the woods to the truck. Then screw it back together. But it definately finished off that corner of the pond it is next to a 6 foot long 2 foot wide semi circular rock that was cut from an excavation.

for your next house, are you going to look in the backyard for a stump that's already dead to put your new pond next to? :cool:

If I was smart I'd buy a lot with a mountain stream. Manipulate it a little add a little touch here and there, and save the electric bill.

Worked on installing new landscaping timbers in the front yard yesterday. All the old ones were rotting away.

Then played some more F1 last night. :)

Pulled lotus out of 75 gallon preform up front. Last year was the first time we didn't cover it to protect it from freezing. The top 8" were mush. Then I got to the 24"deep section. Leaves sprouting! I had to cut it into pieces to get it out. Got at least 15-20 viable roots. 2 went back into preform, 4 others into large planters up front. Rest are waiting for 5 gallon buckets and more kitty litter!

@addy1 I figured you guys might get stung this time due to the bees being so testy and flying about in the sunshine or warmer temps. Sorry for you both. Drag out the unkers!

I would love investigate my 300 gallon lotus tank, but no thanks. They do fine without me messing with them.

We have one huge hive that is just pissy, we are going to requeen them again when queens are available. And probably split the hive to calm them down.

Life is sprouting quickly. And two surprises brings golden club I had planted tge first year but it seemed to have not done well and slowly disappeared. The peastone bog appears to be loaded with it this year it must be one of the plants that needs a couple seasons to established its self . And then there is this that I never planted no idea who what are where it came from in the matrix bog.

spent the afternoon taking down the winter tent. Now I can move around and start tidying up. I left the 2x10s down (so I can walk across, get to the middle, etc) as my wife wanted to see if I could get a projection screen in there for summer movie night. Been my winter project and now we'll see if I engineered the system correctly for easy setup or not. Need to install the rails for the projector screen and another set to hang the projector from. Tested it in the basement for basic playability but now I have to work it into the pondhouse framing.

On the phone and computer trying to track down a lost Home Depot order and our Maryland tax refund. Taxes filed and transmitted 1/14- state started processing 2/12. After 4 calls and a bunch of emails, they said it went thru on 4/7 and was directed deposited. Bank has not seen it! Now I find out our local branch bank has been closed for 2 weeks due to Covid. Not a good day.

Never did understand the girls always getting tired of their hair. Simple male here as the wife says.

Camp echo, i found myself working at the movie site for Halloween a few years back, the owner is still upset with himself as he had a choice by the director to take a percentage in stock in the movie or get paid a rent to use the camp. he chose the cash

2 days ago, my wife sent someone from, Facebook $300 via Paypal friends and family, as a deposit for a puppy. It turned out to be a scam. Luckily, the bank of the linked card was able to stop the transfer of funds. Then, paypal sent them the money from a different account that was linked to paypal.
My wife didn't have any luck reasoning with them so, I was on the phone with them for over an hour. I wasn't getting anywhere either. After demanding 3 times to speak to a manager, I finally got one. I told him the seller violated paypal terms of use by asking for friends and family for goods. I also told him they violated the terms of use again by not supplying said good after receiving funds. Then, told him they are siding with scammers who are stealing peoples money. I argued these points with him for an hour and finally got him to limit their account and suspend funds. He backtracked a few times but after another half hour, I got him to state that if our card disputes the charge, paypal will have to return our funds. Our card people are saying if we paid for something and got nothing, there is a 99.9% chance we will get our money back. We will know in 7 to 10 days. Nothing is easy.

There are so many scammers out there. The lady we got lil bear from is flagging them all of the time on FB I get invites to visit yorky sellers all of the time.

That sucks!

What kind of pup is she trying to get? If they want money only via pp only via friends and family I would not deal with them. We sent funds to our breeder via totally refundable traceable deposit.
