African Clawed Frog (female)


Just a pic of the African Clawed Frog I got last month from the young lass who had to give her up. Hopefully she will visit my blog and see that the frog is doing quite well. Her and the male, that I already had, are living together in marital froggy bliss. I need to do a bit more research to see what triggers breeding, it would be a fun project to raise the tadpoles. I know that them being well fed is necessary, and that a good temperature drop, about 15 degrees F is required to trigger them but am not sure if there are other necessary triggers. I am also not certain she is old enough or large enough to breed just quite yet. While my guess is that she can certainly grow some before I try to breed them, I am also guessing she probably can breed already. I am in no hurry though, so I may just let her grow another inch or two before trying to get them to mate.

It's A Remington Model 81 Not A Model 8...

...but it is a sweet looking one ad it is the one on which I am currently bidding. I kind of doubt I am going to be the winner with as much time left in the auction as there is remaining and with the price as high as it is already but one can dream. I have taken my best shot on it, now time and other potential biddrs will tell if I am the high bidder.

All the best,

Remington & A Cup-O-Joe

I don't drink coffee often. Sometimes I go on a binge for a month or so where I drink a cup a day, other times I drink maybe 2 or 3 cups a week at most. Sometimes, on the weekends, when I almost always have at least a cup on both Saturday and Sunday, I may go overboard and drink 2 or 3 cups in a day (hopefully the early part of my day). Today may be one of those days; I seem to enjoy it more on the weekends.



The one I am enjoying right now is made from French (roast) Sumatra Mandehling beans. It was ground yesterday. This particular coffee is an eye opener especially when you use as much of it as me when brewing it. I used 5 heaping tablespoons (using a measuring spoon but I do mean heaping) for 10 cups of coffee brewed in an electronic drip coffee maker. It comes out nice and strong that way, which is just the way I like it. Drinking it out of one of my favorite coffee mugs also goes a long way toward making it more enjoyable.

All the best,

Glock 26 Cleaning Tips

Before you view the video, allow me to apologize for the poor video quality. I will be remaking this video in the near future and hope to achieve better quality. The quality stinks pretty much because it was shot in too low light. I will do it when the room is filled with daylight or after  have found the light I usually use for my late night videos such as was this one. About the only reason I am actually posting a video of this poor a quality is to show you what not to do when it comes to posting how-to firearms videos. While you could probably figure out what I mean by both watching this video and listening to the audio, it would be a much better and clearer presentation if the video was higher quality. This is pretty much a foul-up in the video quality department. I am no cinematographer but I know I can do better and promise to do so this weekend if time allows. Regardless of the poor video quality you probably can still get something worthwhile out of it. For now though, just consider it a work in progress and this a preview of something better to come.



All the best,
