  1. I found a house in my price range near where the Maco Light used to be. They took up the railroad tracks and replaced them with houses. I wonder what happened to the Maco Light, where did it go?

      I've seen the Maco light, several times, I do not know what it was but reflector it wasn't. I always figured it was some kind of electrical phenomena associated with the RR tracks. Not everyone could see it even when others did. It was weird enough to make a sceptics hair stand up... it did mine. 

      I often wonder if it would still be there after the tracks were taken down but the area is lighted now with street lights and no way to see such a dim red glow with the lights drowning everything out. 

      To be fair the amount of lighting in the area seems more than a bit extreme, I wonder if the light has something to do with that. It was nearly 50 years ago now but if I remember correctly a news crew managed to film it once but that could be wishful thinking on my part.

      Where do ghost lights go when their natural habitat is destroyed?

      My self cloning crayfish have resulted in such a numerous population i am using them as fish food. The down side is that some escape and start eating my plants.

      I have a couple of "proprietary" methods of insuring crayfish breed out of season, every 28 days to be specific. But these self cloning females breed continuously with no need to trick them into season.  No need for males either and none appear in the clone's broods.

      I used to breed dwarf crayfish commercially, in the time these self cloning crayfish have resulted in many dozens of crayfish I would have been lucky to get a dozen having started out with just two.

      Yes they are a thing, somewhat controversial as well, they suddenly appeared in some guys aquarium several years ago, a mutation. They have become established in the wild in a few places, they out reproduce naturally reproducing crayfish. I had two to start with couple months ago, I bought them as a food source for my mudpuppy, now i have dozens and dozens of them.

  7. I hope and pray you will get better mate. And that the pain decreases to a tolerable and controllable level so that you can think clearly again. I look forward to your posts. I find heavy rock music to be cathartic when in pain....

      I've been about to drive my neighbors crazy with rock music, Thanks for the good wishes i do appreciate them. No one who hasn't been through this can understand waking up beside the love of your life and she's dead.

      I live in an apartment now, no place to really work, it makes a huge mess to make such a background.

  19. Hi guys, I am in sunny California where oranges grow on trees in people's yards and evidently it never really rains! I flew out here to see my son and grandchild and help them get their house upacked and set up. 

    My dad died days before I arrived andIfound out I had inherited al of his properties... Sort of... But he didn't leave a will so everything is in "probate" and all his properties will be sold to settle his debts and I have to make sure this gets done. 

    I named my son executor of his estate, my son volunteered btw. 

    I feel like I went on vacation only to find the sword of damacles floating over my head. 

    Fun fun in sunny CA!

      I was aware that black walnut trees could be tapped, an amazing number of trees can be, I didn't think it was done much anymore! KUDOs to you!
