    My fish are dying

    A little late coming in on this. I agree with Astronuc as far as moving to clean water when fish show signs of distress. A friend has large fish and keeps a tough (food/water grade) handy in case he needs to move them. In a pinch he's also used a Sterlite clear plastic storage container. I'm...

    Bare Minerals

    A friend sent me some samples of a mineral makeup and I've been quite taken with it. The company in question also addresses the nano-particle issue upfront. Fairly rare in the scheme of things. In case anyone wants to do more research on a product this page has links to most of the larger...

    Latest AZ UFO sighting

    I haven't run into (actually, haven't looked) to see if there's any video. Another apparently unexplained event. Has anyone heard of an explanation yet? http://ktla.trb.com/news/ktla-phoenixlights,0,319534.story Far Star

    Doggy Dog world

    Well, ya know, he was just being a dog. Don't take it personally but I'd rather see a disclaimer attached to videos like this. I know stuff happens but I'd rather choose to watch based on content rather than title when the potential for serious injury is involved. Far Star

    The disobediant eyelash

    You're welcome. :<) There are entire sections on some forums devoted to such things. There are ergonomic designs, silicone vs rubber, slightly curved or more rounded, padded handle or not, $5 vs $20.... And I thought physics was mind boggling. Far Star

    The disobediant eyelash

    Tip for the day: Warm the eyelash curler with a hair dryer on "low". Make sure to check that's it not too hot and use on clean lashes. They've even come out with a self heating curler. Go figure. Far Star

    Giving back pain

    To be fair, it sounds more like an aversion due to the above circumstance rather than being stubborn. Wolram- go ahead and wear one. It's OK. The chances of the same thing happening are pretty far out there. The chance of getting hit by a car on the side of the road as you're arguing with...

    Cat walking

    Good ideas for a patio or yard. The pre-built are fairly expensive but they do have kits and plans on some of the sites: http://catnet.stanford.edu/articles/enclosures.html [Broken] My cats used to be more or less free roaming back in the day. The neighbors knew what dogs or cats belonged...
