I was over on Roberta X's blog, and had a pleasant memory of my recent past recalled.

A few years ago, I had a desire to have fish available whenever I wished. To this end I spent the previous year building up an impressive worm ranch. First I tried to harvest a hundred worms a night from the local parks. The most medium sized would go into styrofoam cups to be sold as fishing worms. The rest would be encouraged to breed. By Spring, I had a vigorous operation of anywhere between 10,000 to 50,000 worms. I had also discovered the commercial possibilities of earthworm castings. I had two tanks, one of 500 gallon, one of 300 gallon size. I also had 6, 55 gallon drums. At the end of my venture, despite my best efforts, the drums had a foot of solid matter in the bottom. The 500 gallon tank containing the trout didn't survive the summer heat. I made my money back by selling fish emulsion fertilizer. I did have a good harvest of catfish and tilapia. Between the drums, and the tank I harvested 635 pounds of fish, which translated to 9 ounces per pound of edible meat. Non edible items were, ground up, frozen, and later tilled into the soil. While I didn't get the trout in abundance I craved for my plate, I did get enough fish, to be disinclined to repeat the experiment any time soon.

I believe, some guys that dressed real funny, and wore powdered white wigs, got together and decided that we didn't need to bow down before the clinically insane, whether they are named King George the third, or Barack Hussein Obama. I believe that probably isn't fair. I'm sure Barry's a nice guy, and he really doesn't mean to tyrannize or oppress us, even if we disagree with his socialist agenda for destroying America's greatness. It won't be Mr. Obama who does this. It will be a swarm of faceless, soulless bureaucrats, to whom people are just numbers. To CRUNCH!

As Brigid said, "All the cool kids are getting one!". I plunged and got an Acer Aspire One Netbook. I was gonna gut out the hard drive and replace it with my Acer Laptop Drive. Well I found a power connector on eBay, and I'm gonna try to fix the old laptop.
This new little guy may not be the Monkey's Nuts, but it's definitely the cat's ass.....
