That’s amazing to have a log book from so many years ago. I agree that there is just too much misguided information on the internet which takes away from the learning process.

Curious, what does your hippo tank eat? Not that I have one - I’ve only got a 10 gallon tank with a pair of clownfish that seem to be ready to spawn. I may give the worm food a shot.

Oh Nooooo. Dead fish!!!!!

My wife and I came back from Costco a little while ago and when I looked in my tank!!!!!!!!!

AAAAAhhhhhhhhh, I saw something yellow sticking out from under a rock....... My yellow tang......Dead!!!!

OMG, I never have a dead fish. What will I do....My reputation is shot and I will have to go and eat worms, maybe stick my head in the dolomite at the bottom of my tank...

Then as I reached for the net, I realized........I don't have a yellow tang.

I looked closer and noticed, it was a mangrove tree leaf. I am baby sitting 4 mangrove plants in my tank for someone and I guess a leaf fell off.

Oh Well, catastrophe averted. :p

Someone asked me about fancy gadgets on my tank.

AS you probably figured out, I don't have any fancy gadgets and if I did, I wouldn't be able to figure them out.

Just yesterday I am trying to get Covid shots for my wife and myself so I had to take a picture of my insurance card and put it on this on line form. The shot is free so I think they just want my information to see if I know how to do it. And I don't.

I am using my wife's newer computer and printer. I put the card in the printer and my education ends there as the rest of it is above my pay scale. I am hitting all the buttons and screaming at the thing in three languages. It is asking me stupid questions like do I want Jpeg or other initials which I have no idea about. I just want a picture of the thing and put it on my computer somewhere where I can find it. That never happens.

I want a printer like those "Jitterbug" phones they give old, senile people. The phones with the big numbers and all they do is let you call an EMS worker to say you've fallen and can't get up or is it time for my blue pill or the red one.

I want a printer with a big "ON and OFF" switch right in the middle of the thing. A real switch that goes up and down, not a lit up icon with a smiley face on it. Then I want to put on it whatever I want to scan and push a big red button that says "SCAN". Don't give me any choices as to the size, Landscape, vertical, color, black and white, "Fit to screen" etc. Just a big "SCAN" button. Nothing else. Especially nothing that says Bluetooth. I will just connect a wire to it, thank you very much. I mean the stupid thing is right next to the computer, how lazy can you be? Bend down and plug a wire in it.

After it scans, I want whatever I scanned, "exactly" like I scanned it to go, just as it is, to the middle of my computer screen. No place else. Even if the computer is off, I want it to go there. I don't want to file it, save it, name it, crop it, rotate it, E Mail it as that never works because you get a message saying "your computer is not configured to E Mail at this time call the Manager". The manager of what? Burger King?

Is that to much to ask for?
I went down to my Man cave where I have my Windows 7 computer. It still looks new because I put lemon oil all over the wooden sides of it. I push scan, the thing scanned and went right on my computer screen just like I wanted. No questions, no abbreviations, no sizes, colors etc.

This process only took the better part of one day so I am happy. But I still can't get Covid shots.
