Baghdad Harry

Baghdad Harry

 

Welp, just saw a video of Harry Reid speaking on the senate floor telling us how all the stories of people having issues with Obamacare are untrue. According to him, nobody has had their insurance cancelled and now they cant afford their full priced medication, nobody is paying higher premiums, nobody is having issues where they cant get in to see their doctor cause they aren’t taking Obamacare patients, nobody has signed up and used the exchanges and their new insurance company has no record of them, and no doctors have had their name and office added to the list of providers without their consent. Nope, none of it is true. Harry says it’s all lies.

Seeing him stand there and say all this reminded me of Baghdad Bob who back during the Iraqi war was the Information Minister and got on TV and told  the Iraqi citizens that they were not really being invaded and they would destroy the American Infidels, all while explosions and tanks were going off behind him. He said things like“There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!”, “I blame Al-Jazeera – they are marketing for the Americans!”, and “They’re not even [within] 100 miles [of Baghdad]. They are not in any place. They hold no place in Iraq. This is an illusion … they are trying to sell to the others an illusion.”

 


Baby fish fry

I’m finally staring to have some baby fry being born. Have found three so far, all look to be different sizes. They don’t seem to be laying more than one at a time yet.
Also caught my frogs doing it… So maybe I’ll have some tadpoles someday…

More Boston pics

Pictures from the Boston Commons area. Got to spend a few hours walking around the area. Can’t wait to go back and visit more.
Also a few pics of New Hampsires Capitol, some food I ate and other things, Salem at night. Even a luggage bag on the Tarmac that fell off a luggage truck.

Boston pics

Pics from driving around. Friday is only a half day of classes so I’m going to spend my time off hoofing it around the parks. So awesome here this time of year. Can’t wait to come back in late spring or summer.
Below are a couple of shots of Fenway Park and show how close it is to the neighboring buildings.
And a couple of other random shots of the Beacon street area. And a few pics of random houses that I pass on my trip from HP and my hotel.

Shell Dwellers

Picked up some Shell Dweller Multi’s last weekend. They are the smallest species of African Cichlids. They are pretty entertaining for fish? They like to move the sand around and dig under the shells to get them to move in the directions that they want them to be in. It’s very hard to find these in a chain pet store. But some mom and pop stores may have them or can order them for you. I was lucky enough to find somebody on Craigslist that was only about 20 miles from where I live so I bought 8 from her. But turned out there was a baby in one of the shells she was giving me so I really have 9.
Anyways, I’ve enjoyed them the 3 days I’ve had them so far. I tried feeding them mini cichlids pellets but even the mini size is to big for them. Tried grinding them up but they don’t seem to care for the taste to much I guess. They do however LOVE frozen Daphnia. So I’ll probably try some other frozen foods too that way they aren’t eating the same thing every day. Somebody on a fish forum said to get some NLS Grow, that his Multi’s love it.

Separated at birth?

Did this a while back but with Muammar al-Gaddafi being all dead and stuff now, thought I would post it.
