My fish Jim Stone, who I have kept for a year and a half has passed away. He died on my 23rd birthday, and I want to take up some web space to talk about him. Jim was the best fish I've ever owned. For one and a half years, Jim was my faithful best finned.
The day I picked him up at the store, I was looking at the stacks of betta fish in little containers, seeking the most energetic fish. Jim was just a common betta fish, not a fancy breed. He didn't have anything to set him apart

When I was eight years old I used to take my pork chop, the rest that I couldn't make myself eat and toss

[QUOTE=BranchMonkey;36206106]1) Woke up and got to it: Reinstalled Linux on the old Asus; it's running well again--I couldn't hook up to the Internet, and before that, I had slow-downs and other problems.
2) Pickles and Pieper are totally chill now with each other. Only problem, which is natural--Pickles is too old for Pieper's speed and enthusiasm, antics; I enjoy them.
3) It's pay day which means a simple, nice meal--and because it's Friday we can stay up late and
