I haven't made much progress lately, mine is still dry too.

Same. We're going through 10 gallons of ro/di a day in our humidifier. I can barely keep up with that, plus evap from my already running tanks. I haven't been able to make up enough water to get the contest tank filled again.

I'm still trying to find time to get my tank filled and my diy controller tested out. Of course work just keeps needing more time from me...

That's my problem with a contest. Now that we're close to another lock down I'm busier than a 1 armed paper hanger in a gale.

The thing I can't figure out is how work knows when I want to do something fun. I can go weeks without them needing hardly anything from me and then, as soon as I find something interesting I'd like to do, they have a million needs. I'm a database consultant, so my schedule isn't very consistent anyway, but it's nearly guaranteed to be a busy week of I choose to go on vacation.  Apparently I should join a nano-reef contest anytime I want to significantly increase my time and earnings 😉

The money is nice, but fishing season is coming . They better realize that I won't be running my ass off then.

Bakin’ 9 to 5: Dolly Parton rolling out limited-edition baking mixes

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Dolly Parton and Duncan Hines are collaborating on a line of baking mixes and frostings inspired by Dolly’s southern roots.

“I’ve always loved to cook. Growing up in the South exposed me to that authentic Mom & Pop kind of cooking. Baking was no different. I had plenty of people to show me what’s what in the kitchen… my Mama, my grandmothers and my aunts were all wonderful bakers,” said Parton. “They taught me everything I know, from biscuits and gravy to chocolate cake. Now I am proud to share some of those favorites with all of you.”

 

The Dolly Parton line includes a banana cake mix, a coconut cake mix, buttercream frosting, and chocolate buttercream frosting.

Duncan Hines is even creating a baking collection box that includes a Dolly-inspired tea towel and spatula.

If you want to bake just like Dolly, Duncan Hines has also included recipes for both the banana puddin’ cake and coconut cake.

Dolly’s Baking Collection will be available online starting at 8 a.m. EST on Jan. 26.

  • A current equipment list with specifications
  • Current livestock
  • Links to key posts
  • Your maintenance routine
  • Things you've learned and/or what you wish you had done differently
