The temperatures in the Lower Mainland have been in the mid 30′s for the past 2 weeks and it’s causing the water in fish tanks to heat up. So today I decided to change the water in both my tanks and pour in some cold water to even out the temperatures to 78-80 degrees. I know the temperature will still climb up over time, but at least there will be more oxygen in the water for the fish now. Some of my fish are getting bigger every month as are my turtles in my 125 Gallon tank. My crayfish SuperTank is still kicking well and cruising around my 29 Gallon tank regularly, he hasn’t molted for a while but I think he should in the next few months. My baby angel fish is now the size of a loonie and growing nicely.

I haven’t posted on my blog about RC Cars or Trucks for a bit so I thought I would link to this forum i just accidently surfed to which has a nitro buggy that was converted to a brushless electric motor system with 2 LiPo battery packs. Click Here for the link.
I haven’t had much time to do any work on my 1993 Honda Civic for a while now but I still drive it daily and every time I get behind the wheel I get excited. It’s not the excitement of a new car or 500 horsepower but instead it’s the fact it works great and I did all the work myself. The turbo is still coming just on hold for now, but once that gets installed in her she will have a new ROAR to expel from her tail pipe. There is a special bond between some people and their car not just as a physical item but as a form of freedom and total control. When I drive my Honda Civic I know every sound, every creek, every reaction that she gives to me when I propel her through the roadways. It’s almost like were connected as soon as the engine starts, we become one entity and each one knows what they expect of the other. This might sound a bit weird for some but hey I don’t really care because when I drive down the road I know exactly what my Honda Civic is capable of to keep me safe from all the crazy driver out there. And you ask why I call my Honda Civic “She or Her”, well everyone knows that a guys car is a some what a female form.
I was surfing around today and accidentally discovered this new Electronics blog that’s new on the block so I thought I would help the person running it out and link to him right away as he already has some great information and images posted. The Blog is called Volts and Bytes and I like it already with the schematics and images that are visible. The link is www.voltsandbytes.com so check it out if your into electronics or circuit building as he has some great information on there already and maybe down the road will have lots more great info.
