Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Cleaning the Pond!

Every year we have to empty out the top of the falls and clean out the pads and the "bio-balls" that are in 
a net and keep our pond's eco-system in check! So this past week-end Mr. Bob tackled the job. Our pond is called an "Urban Oasis Aquascape Pond" that means that the pond has an effective and a low maintenance system. There are no chemicals involved, just natural bacteria and enzymes to help keep the water naturally clear and sparkling. Plants and fish complete the natural "eco-system" cycle. There are 2 pumps at each end of the pond and the fish make their own livable pond living off plants and algae. We do throw the fish their pond food so we can see and touch them occasionally but we don't have to. :)
