TIGER JAW SUCCULENT CACTUS
PRE-COOKED DUNGENESS CRAB ADVENTURE
Back in January, I bought pre-cooked crab from COSTCO. This is my first time ever to buy non-live crabs. They can be disappointingly smelly and costly. But COSTCO is one place you can return if the product is bad. So, I tried. And I was very careful in selecting a clean crab with large pinchers. I was lucky. The crab was fresh and tasted very good - not as good as the live ones, but it was very fat and meaty.

SPECIAL WINE WAND - "NO MORE WINE HEADACHES" WINE PURIFIER - REALLY?
During Christmas holiday, I came across this "TheWand" Wine Purifier Ad. I thought I would like to try it because I can never get past the first sip of the wine tasting without tasting the Sulfur in it. Most of the people won't taste it, but it bothers me. I am not a wine drinker but I decided to try it. I find it quite ingenious and effective. I even bought a wine bottle style purifier as a Christmas gift. It says, it removes Histamines and Sulfites. Sure enough, I had no itch or red dots on my body or headache afterwards. That doesn't meant that I start drinking every day or week, but it's nice to use it during the special occasion when wine is included in the celebration.
MY PET GOLDFISH PHOTO JOURNAL
It has been quite busy on a weekly basis ever since last winter when I brought in three gold fish out of my Lotus Ponds to keep them from freezing to death. They thrive and gotten pretty big. It was not intention to keep them indoor, but it became a house pet along with three fan tail gold fish. And to my surprise, the fantail gold fish have been laying eggs every 2 to 3 weeks!. The first group had 40 some frys. But unfortunately after several weeks of trying to grow them, because of my lack of knowledge, one by one, they disappeared.
And I also understand now why the aquarium section's staff always asks how large is the tank for the goldfish that I am buying. Thus far, knock on woods, these fancy tail goldfish have been quite lively since last spring. The comet orange goldfish keeps on growing and they need to go back out this late spring to do their job.... eat mosquitos... I think... but maybe not. The Calico short fancy goldfish is really strange. I found out that it is blind or it got blind. It even got so fat in the belly that it lop sided up side down and so forth. Then, I found out that it is "pregnant" and other fish were chasing it so aggressively that it injured it?? That's when I transferred all the fancy tail to a different tank. Then, it laid eggs.
