I've been considering going into a trade. With construction booming in the area, and tradespeople needed badly, some of those fields would be a good thing to look into. I'm considering becoming an electrician - its interesting and ever-changing, and I'd get to meet a variety of people, instead of the same faces every day. The pay is good, and jobs are plentiful. Does anyone have any info about this job, or another trade I might not have thought of? has anyone gone through apprenticeship trainging? What did you think of the process?|
Ginger (my nearly year old basset) is shedding like crazy. Its her undercoat, now that its getting warm. I'm taking her to the groomer, to get her really well brushed & cleaned up (I'm a soft mommy and can't hold her still for long enough to get a good job done myself) Suggestions for keeping her (and our house) loose hair free? She hates the vaccuum, I tried that way, and I felt horrible.
My back yard pond is infested with algae, and I've tried 2 different methods of getting rid of it. I don't really want to add anything else to the water, for fear of od'ing the environment. (I've tried a phosphorus treatment and barley straw pellets - no help) I'm getting a new filter system, the lady @ the store I get my pond supplies from said UV filters are really effective. Any ideas on these, or other ones? Also, I know that plecostamus-es (plecostami?) eat algae - would they be able to survive in the pond? We have a filter now, so the water stays aerated and keeps moving, and we've had 4 fish survive for nearly a year. Good idea or no?
Thanks for any suggestions you've got!
