Glad you are still kicking man. Your daughter is beautiful, and your son is quite a handsome man.

I really can't believe what I just saw though. The tank?! EMPTY?!

I did see the new coat of paint and sparkly clean glass. Glad it is getting a second life.

Thanks, Cable! They're quite the handful.

Thanks! So I guess 2 negatives really do make a positive. lol Cuz Mom and Dad are a couple of G double O N's. Oliver is going through the terrible two's at 4. Sometimes it's brutal... And Heidi definately is a Daddy's girl as long as Mommy doesnt leave her sight lol.

I thought about asking Harrison to house them, but I figured I'd just do it myself. I split them up in smaller tanks upstairs for now, and all the plants are in tubs upstairs.

It going back up depends on how motivated I am to finish my (wife's) to do list. haha. Going to work on the 1/4 round this weekend.

Lol. The a-cursed "Honey Do" list.

I think mine started going through the terrible two's at 11 months. *facepalm* Enjoy it while it lasts though. I blinked and my older daughter turned 6 and started school. I missed a lot with that one.

In house respect has NOTHING to do with the world circus. My kids know whats right and realize most ignore the rules of a polite life style.

I blinked twice and my girl has her masters degree, a job and is marrying a frog. My baby boy is now 13. Hi guys!

Authority=Stucture, perhaps NC? Most people need a structure to live by, which would include scheduling work and free time, and it would logically follow that there would be a hierarchy of those with more experience to instruct those with less experience; ergo, those would be placed into a position of wisdom and power=authority. Ideally-speaking, of course.

I would think that, as an adult, you can control yourself and keep certain ideas or attitudes somewhat hidden. Children cannot. I'm not sure that I would necessarily teach my kids to "obey," necessarily, but to be respectful even in disagreement. We are ALL in positions of "authority" in some way. You are in a position of "authority" with respect to your kids, right? Authority is not a bad thing; inflated Ego, power run amok, greed, and blind obedience are, but they don't have to equate to a definition of authority. Those in positions of authority that abuse it are the enemy. Those who don't are leaders.

Err.....also: I hope that you get this big guy up and running. And soon!

That is the nature of the list. It never ends. NEVER.

Lol. She just started. She will be a year on Valentine's Day, and already throwing tantrums.

Thanks Mike, It's just that i feel slightly hypocritical for throwing around my authority when if the same was done to me, there'd be a problem. I know he needs it, because he is a child but it's just something i'm dealing with in my own messed up head. a moral dilemma of sorts.

thanks don, I'm trying to teach him to question the hierarchy and not to believe what someone tells you just because they are an authority figure... because like you said, thats an ideal situation, not necassarily an actual situation. power corrupts.

i guess what im trying to get it at, is getting him to make the distinction between what is BS and what isnt. i mean, i'm not preaching anarcho-whatever to him and telling him how to make molotovs (that comes later j/k), but again i don't want him to blindly accept opinions as fact.


Thanks to both you and mike for your responses. I would go deeper into the discussion, but it would not be appropriate for this forum.

finally got started on this thing.

suspened the light from the ceiling, installed 2 lights in the cabinet, a gfci, installed the power strips/timers, co2 system and started toying with hardscape.


one set back is that my t5's keep tripping the gfci. its only the second switch that has the majority of the lamps that does it. Google told me this is a common problem among reefers. So do i put a normal outlet back in or run an extension cord 3 ft to an outlet on a different circuit and risk being assaulted by the wife for having an extension cord running along the wall.
