African Cichlids

Finally got a round to making a dent in the garage cleanup.  Now you can at least walk in the garage and make your way to the door.

Gavin and I return a bunch of bottles and cans, something we don't do too often.  Stop and Shop machines are not working too well in the recycle area.  It is hot and smelly, and the store brand water for the most part won't return our nickels.

We decide to do a quick shop for bread, juices, bananas, kefir, and some English muffins.  I had to do a double take when I looked at the English muffins.  Buy 1 get 2 free.  How can you resist.

This day in history "On this day in 1997, U.S. Air Force officials release a 231-page report dismissing long-standing claims of an alien spacecraft crash in Roswell, New Mexico, almost exactly 50 years earlier.
Public interest in Unidentified Flying Objects, or UFOs, began to flourish in the 1940s, when developments in space travel and the dawn of the atomic age caused many Americans to turn their attention to the skies. The town of Roswell, located near the Pecos River in southeastern New Mexico, became a magnet for UFO believers due to the strange events of early July 1947, when ranch foreman W.W. Brazel found a strange, shiny material scattered over some of his land. He turned the material over to the sheriff, who passed it on to authorities at the nearby Air Force base. On July 8, Air Force officials announced they had recovered the wreckage of a "flying disk." A local newspaper put the story on its front page, launching Roswell into the spotlight of the public's UFO fascination."

You believe what you want.  Did we get visited ??

This afternoon we went to Petland and Petco to look at some fish.  We finally got around to setting up Luke's fish tank.  Petco won out for price and selection.  Service was another story as we waited and searched for an associate for 15 minutes.

We chose 5 African Cichlids, an aggressive species that I raised and bred when I was a kid with my dad.  Brings back memories.  The associate at the Petco was having trouble netting the fish, so we tag teamed and got them in bag.

Once home we acclimated the fish to their tank.  Tonight we fed them, and they seem to be happy in their new environment.  Luke wants to know how long it will take them to double size and when we can feed then live food ( guppies ).

Chicken Tikka, Rice, Peas, Naan, papdam, and mango chutney for dinner.

Watched the red bulls soccer game, and will be heading to bed early.  I am the only one who has to get up early tomorrow...summer is hear.

P.S. Did I forget to mention the nice game of pool volleyball that Luke and I played...I won this time :-)
