OK... so the contract terms are defined, and it's in their hands now, and DK can now post about the cashew jar project.

And this here is a super-duper high-tech map of DK's "Cashew Jar Department Store"


...Whutizzit???

I'm just not suuuuuuuure whether y'all caught this.

See here, Pepe Deluxe has SOMEHOW gotten a hold of DK's picture and has used it on their T-shirt, even demonstrating the squirrely brain in her head.

And, her camera is reading it more toward navy/cobalt blue, but it is
this color

OK. So. The orange stuff.

You know, as you wind your way through a department store,
dropping cash on purchases, everywhere you turn is merchandise
where you can drop your cash.
Those cash register stations, they are a sort of MATRIX,
ready and willing, to soak up your cash.

The orange stuff is the matrix of cash registers, in the store.



Yeah. You go in, flush with cash, you leave, broke. Like this:

So....... while we do laundry and all power-consuming chores (y'know, in case we lose power), waiting for Frankenstorm Sandy to barrel into us in a day or two, we continue...

A short trip to Lowes, to buy some secondary containment vats of just the right size/dimensions. DK didn't have them in her bins & barrels of parts, and in this case deemed it worthy of some cash outlay to have the right thing, as the cashew jars will be stationed OVER light fixtures, so secondary containment is prudent.

When planning a project, DK always asks herself, "What is the worst thing I can think of that can go wrong?" - and then plans for it. Sort of like that Seal Team Six leader, in an interview said that they plan and train for every possible contingency, but he also assumes SOMETHING will go wrong, in every mission.

Next, we shopped for just the right parts, to make a bulkead of sorts, as DK's bulkead stash didn't have quite what she wanted. Then, we make a bulkhead drain into our secondary containment tray, in case the cashew jars leak or overflow for any reason.

Better safe than sorry, I like the way you think... I bought a small generator incase the power goes out, just enough to power fridge/freezer, TV, direct TV, and all my tanks!

Ahem.

So, today.

This shows up, in the mail, from the UK. It's a poster. I'm so glad it beat the storm here.

Hey DK, I was wondering where you purchase the twin wall? I read back a few pages and came across your post about it, and its benefits over glass, plexiglass, but didn't see where you purchased it from. what does it typically cost?

I get it from eplastics dot com, but there you have to buy a whole sheet and have it cut down. You can get smaller quantities from greenhousemegastore dot com, but the price per square foot is a bit higher if you buy less than a full sheet
; most hobbyists have no use for a full sheet (4' x 8').

I use the 6 mm normally; for Sulawesi tanks 8 mm to help hold in the heat better.

And I'm not sure for you, since you're in Canada, whether you could get it shipped up there cost effectively, but I guess you can ask them.

DK's Goddog Rottie reflects after Sandy blows through

He's happy to hear DK made it through, OK, but he knows millions of folks are having significant disruption to their lives, now. The experience has left him feeling foggy - that's nearly 105 pounds of fog, that is.
