    Sitting down, facing forward, but that's not important right now.

    Good morning, Voltpeeps.

    Glad to see you up and about, Evie

    I don't like swimming so a swimming pond wouldn't interest me but when you start using pond pumps, the electricity adds up. I bet we are spending $20 per month to have our water feature running. We were turning the pump off at night until I got my mosquito fish.

    Of course, I do think it is worth the money since the dogs always have plenty of drinking water and the birds just adore having water. I have my cattails and they are alive. I hope we never find a snake bathing in there

    With a little ingenuity, you can use the wind for pond aeration. Of course, that only works when the wind is blowing.

    I'm not nearly tough enough for a pond with deadly amoeba, alligators of any size and cottonmouths snakes. Heck, I wouldn't even want to swim with a garter snake. I'm horrified, Wuzz.

    How's Penny, SandySu?

    I so way over did it this week. I had to take aspirin with dinner. I woke up in the middle of the night and had to take 2 ibuprofen I was so sore. I have a house to clean today so wish me luck.

    The whole changing the drip system looks like it has paid off. The new full flow timer worked perfectly last night. Since the mainline tubing is getting a bit worn and old, now was a good time to change it up.

    I need one more timer so that the other zone on that faucet can water itself too. I also think I will get more timers for the near the house zones. That way they will water themselves even when I am gone in the day time. That will leave me two zones to water by turning on the valves but I am not made of money so I will have to wait to buy two more timers for those two zones.

    Yes, Lizzie. It would be a good idea to get a windmill to generate the electricity to run the pumps. Still increasing the expense for the initial project. What a beautiful daydream, anyway.

    I think a pond is a great idea, Zero. It isn't that hard to do a pond although a swimming pond would need to be a certain depth and such. They have those pond liners that are reasonably tough and fairly easy to install. Not that it wouldn't take some doing and some people to help set it up.Keep reading up on the topic and you may find yourself making a pond

    The windmill can be used for aeration without actually pumping water up to a spill way. It just pumps air down to the bottom of the pond.

    Morning Volties, This will probably be my last post for several days. We are leaving this morning for Raven's Haven. Yippee!

    You all have a great weekend.

    Good morning Voltpeas.

    Hiya, Princess Evie.

    Good luck and have fun, Terry.

    I can swim, but I don't like swimming either.

    DON'T go back to smoking, no matter what the FDA does.
    Going back to smoking will be a huge loss for you, in more ways than one.
