Prolly like 100 of them! So far it seems like they are surviving and not getting sucked through the filter. Guess I'll have a bunch of fish to give away soon.

But here's the problem. I knew this was going to happen. We dug the pond next to a big tree that flowers in spring. The flowers are now dropping off into the pond. This bioload has caused an algae spike. Already had it spike and crash one time. The good thing is there is a large snail population that seems to like to munch on the flowers. The fish seem happy so ... I guess as long as the flowers aren't poisonous ... it's ok.

There's a ton more Red Eared sliders, if I want them. Turtles are dirty though, and they are predatory. Pull dead birds and stuff into the pond.

Turns out these fish aren't great either. They are Gambusia ... Mosquitto fish

They breed like crazy, and yes ... they prevent mosquittos from breeding in your pond, but they also eat other larvae ... dragon flys, possibly other fish eggs or larvae, frog/toad eggs. That's bad. I want the toads to come to that area this summer. I'd actually like to go out in the desert and capture a few this summer, and bring them to the pond. I think we only get 2 males that show up every year, and need a female. So, it will be interesting to see what happens this rainy season.

At any rate, I'm gonna have a bunch of extra fish. Too many. So, I can give them away, or trade them maybe ... but then I was thinking, if I hired a Mexican to do all the digging, spent $50 on a pump and $50 on a liner, I could make a service where I create a desert pond for you, at $150 my cost ... prolly sell it for $299. I come back a week later and put some fish in it and some snails ... you got a living pond that will eliminate mosquittos in your area.

That's me and my parents that live on this property.

5 acres, old growth trees and cacti, 2 houses, 4 structures, a pond, a small pool, a 2 car garage connected to one house, a car port at the other house. Separate gates to each house and parking. The new house has an electric gate which is hand forged iron from India and like 500 years old. The entire back 2.5 acres is untouched natural desert. Could be cleared for horses. Property is zoned for horses and other livestock and is full of art, I don't really like. All of it goes to me in the will .... and I have a 9 inch calk.

Yeah ... poor girl that ends up with me. You should feel sorry for her.















































Ok, I know it's only a 5 inch calk, but he thinks he is 9 inches. Dummy can't measure ... but as long as he ACTS like he's 9 inches ... that's all that matters.

Oh yeah .... then there's my father. He's a self made millionaire. He lost some money in the recent housing crash, but I am his only surviving son. I'll inherit a share of a trust there, as well.

Poor girl that ends up with me. I haven't even met her yet, but I really feel sorry for her.


































She might be 10 years old right now.

:shocking:

See: I'll meet her when I am 50, and she'll be 19.

The girl that crushed my heart when I was 19 recently turned 40. Her and her husband also lost their house. I know this because I did a google search and it was public record that the house was auctioned by the bank. That woulda been pretty sweet there if I had been there to buy it. Rent it back to her ... and make her blow me while her husband is at work. But .... it wasn't to be.

You see, she was given everything by her parents when she was 18. And because she was female, and Hispanic, in 1989 she got scholarships. She wasn't smart, mind you ... she was just female and Mexican ... and pretty. She got free modeling school as well, and did OK as a local model. She married a guy that owns a storage business. And I'm not sure why that business is bad in Tucson right now, but I guess it is.

See, the difference is ... Mexican parents .... they give their kids everything they can at 18. White ... WASP parents .... they try and teach you that life isn't fair, and that you have to be smarter than the Asian kid next to you in class. Better yet .... make friends with the Asian kid and invite him to your study group.

At any rate, she got a full ride, all the way through grad school .... and was never that smart. She was good at getting ppl to kiss her ass. That prolly wore off in her 30's. She never had a real job.

She crushed me ... I never loved anybody like I loved her. Nobody else ever mattered that much to me. And I remember her saying to me, "If you want something bad enough, no matter what it is, you can have it." and that may have been true for her at the time, but things came easy for her. All I wanted was her, and I woulda done anything for her, but I couldn't have her. She left me for another guy.

Her Roman Catholic parents treated all 7 of their kids this way. Dad was an engineer ... I imagine they are doing fine. I actually really liked and respected her parents (kinda have to when you are banging their little girl). Her Mom was a sweetheart, and would always make me food. If she didn't marry a guy with old money .... and his business is going under ..... guess what honey .... do you remember when I said:

"If Mick Jager once said, "You can't always get at you want." then YOU .... can't always get what you want, and the sooner you learn that, the better off you will be."

She never learned that. Not until her mid to late 30's. That she was no longer a hot young latina that everyone wanted to fock. Her powers .... vanished.

And I'm still broke. My parents still have never given me shiat. It's all in a series of trusts. Hey ... it's their money ... if they can spend it all before they die ... hah hah hah .... yeah, never gonna happen.

I remember once I told a girl that was breaking up with me some shiat she didn't know about me, "Yeah. Old money. It's the best kind!" and that's because you can't lose old money. It's all protected and shiat.

I also remember when that Mexican girl and I were breaking up, she had cheated on me with a guy who had a nicer car. More money. Guy who became a doctor. (BTW I keyed the fock outta his brand new Honda Prelude. Doushbag!)

I told her, "Rich is in my blood. It doesn't matter what I do, I'll end up rich." and she said, "Me too. I'm determined to be rich."

And I said, "You don't understand what I'm saying .... IT DOESN'T MATTER what I do. I AM GOING TO BE RICH."

I'm still not sure she understood what I was saying.

I think she knows now .... but it's too focking late.

I might hire her husband to wash my horses in the future. Let them live in the stable as ranch hands. Pay them in pinto beans and mosquito fish.

That's me and my parents that live on this property. i like how you say your parents "live on this property" when in actuality you meant to say "im a poor, jobless, homeless, lazy, stupid mother focker who lives off his parents or i'd be dead"

5 acres, old growth trees and cacti, 2 houses, 4 structures, a pond, a small pool, a 2 car garage connected to one house, a car port at the other house. Separate gates to each house and parking.

No ... I was supposed to be a big star. Was a star artist in my hometown of Tucson before I left to New York. I did it. I worked my ass of and I went from $10 an hour in 1995, to 60k plus benis .... in 2000.

And then the first "internet bubble" burst. I retained my job at the same pay ..... but was working with figure heads, that were just pretenders .... and then after 9/11 a couple guys I worked with died. The company asked the employees to donate. No matching funds ... nothing, and I was a little offended by that. These men died, on the job, working for REid Eslevier .... this multi-billion dollar, international publisher,

All I knew was .... the people I was left working with were idiots. IT took way too long to get anything done, and then it would still have mistakes, I'd come in late, despite being reprimanded for it .... never had a full days work to do, so I'd leave early.

Seemed pretty cut and dry to me. I been here 3 years .... I can smell what's comming ...fock it ,,,, I can't be part of the charade.

I sent a Lawyer Letter .... in late 2001 ... giving 6 months notice. "Or ,,,, you can just give me 6 months sevarance and not contest my Unemployment claim. I was "released" or whatever ... "I'm not quitting. Yet.". It was the perfect plan.

I had them right where I wanted them .... only thing I forgot to do was threaten to sue for sexual harassment. It coulda become a little uglier than I planned it, I didn't want it to become ugly. Nobody wanted that.



But I walked away with 6 months paid, plus unemployment .... I was pretty much set for a year .... and I went back to school. NYU ... to get my MS. Class of 04.

Shiat still sucks. The 8 years of dipwad, redneck, chimp .... are not gonna be fixed in 8 years. It's gonna take more time than that, but people have to be realistic.

You want some REAL numbers?

The bush tax cuts .... not including the RX for seniors plan (but that cost a TRILLION dollars) have cost over a TRILLION dollars. 1.2 trillion is the number I saw .... but these right wing pundits on the radio complain it's Obamacare .... and the current socialist gubmint. The bailout cost a trillion dollars.

That's all not true.

Yes the "Bush Era Tax cuts" which are about to expire, the Rx plan for seniors ... and the wars Bush started in Afghanistan and Iraq .... that's all about 3 trillion dollars. Oh yeah, and the bailout for AIG, and the rest of the banks.

The "Obama" bailout ... was 800 billion, a lot less than one trillion .... and in less than 4 years we have destroyed the leadership of Al Quaeda .... we are more aware of a threat ,,,, and we are winding down our missions over seas. You wanna support our troops? Bring 'em home.

And the bailout of GM worked. The gubmint made money on that loan.

The banks though .... I think they are greedy focks, that no longer understand what good business practices are as far as retaining customers .... I'm honestly surprised JP Morgan Chase still exists. The people that work there are idiots. I've known that for a long time.

But back to the budget ..... you got 3 trillion that was Bush, and less than 1 trillion for Obama's "stimulus". WTF are ppl complaining about? The Bush era Tax cuts are gonna expire ...., and .... why is that bad?
