It is very strange, but where I live, Chongqing, which is known to be one of the "Three Furnaces of China", in other words it is known to get hot as hell and its famous dish "hot-pot" could be considered a cooling solution.  However, notwithstanding the north of China is really hot these days, the south-east is suffering from humungous rain and floods, Chongoing has been very warm, but all we have needed so far are fans, we have not had to turn on our air conditioning as yet.

I don't know about anyone else, but I had a marvelously cool and mild spring that lasted all the way up until last week. I was spoiled by it. I'm talking jackets-in-the-evening-cool well into June. Now that it's finally warmed up, the heat seems worse than it otherwise might because I'm not yet acclimated to it, lol.

Since both my shallow office riparium and 40g waterfall tanks have done so well, I've started a new project - A UNS Foresta 60E Paludarium. The back of the tank will spill water and mist down from the top. The sponges there are to attach plants. I have an aquatic plant order in, but it's back ordered and I'm doing some research on mini orchids and other plants for that back wall.

When this is done and growing in it should look like a rain forest with a pool of water in front.

Since I haven't taken any photos for a while this is a photo of part of my very mixed family. I have four grandkids, twelve great grandkids, and three great great grandkids. This is a photo of eight of them taken this past summer in Orange, NSW Australia, and all are blood-related except for the little girl on the far left, number 20 who is a friend and that is Jory giving her a nuzzle. There is Ojibwe, Samoan, Maori, French, English, and Dutch mix and three generations ago there is Chinese as well. I wish the world could look, act and love like this. Isn't DNA interesting?

Yesterday, for a snack, I had peanut butter on crackers, and today for breakfast with my two sunny-sides-up and fried cherry tomatoes I had margarined toast with raspberry jam and marmalade - I don't know if I'll ever get the chance to try vegemite, but of course I do enjoy fresh-picked veggies from my wife's minifarm every day - been enjoying fresh picked corn lately.  Corn should be eaten on the day it is picked because the sugar in the kernals turns to starch very quickly.

One day we would have PBJ.  It was always grape jelly.  One day it would be a tuna fish sandwich.  One day it would be a baloney (I know, bologna) sandwich.  And then, it would be a cream cheese and chopped olive sandwich.  YUCK!  The WORST!  My wife couldn't understand why I cringed and told her NO WAY! one day when she suggested a cream cheese and chopped olive sandwich.

The same flower bed, along with the newest member of the family.

Buddy disappeared 10 days before Christmas, leaving a sad void that needed to be filled, so... meet Bella, a female orange mackerel tabby. She's almost 10 weeks old now, and has been here for a little over 3. 

original

She's at the age where absolutely everything must be explored and/or played with...

original

... and just won't leave Polly alone (lol). Poor old Polly. She's a good girl though, and has been super patient with Bella so far.

original

According to the internet, orange females are somewhat rare. The way cat genetics work, it's harder to get the right gene combination and only about 20% of orange cats turn out to be female, with the other 80% being male.

I still miss Buddy, but she's been a joy.

Thanks, Shona. Bella is so playful that she'd probably just send bites and scratches back. Friendly ones, though. You know what I mean, haha.

If you could meet her she might jump into your arms. I don't think I've ever known a cat to do that before, but Bella does. If she's climbed up on something and you go over to get her, about half the time she meows in her squeaky little kitten voice and then jumps out to you, right into your arms. It's cute as hell.

I had to look up 5.4 kilos, lol. Almost 12 pounds. That's a good sized kitty, for a female.

Bella is growing a lot slower than Buddy did. Only about a quarter to a half a pound per week (113 to 126 grams). I think she was the runt of the litter and may end up being rather small. Fine with me, though.

I had a cat named Oliver who used to do that.  When we first rescued him, entirely against his will, he would crawl under the covers with us at night, then hiss at us when we all woke up in the morning.

But he warmed up to us eventually, and would jump into my arms for a cuddle every day when I got home from work.

I can fully understand your feelings about Buddy and send you my sympathy for your loss.  My Fidget was MY "buddy" for 17 years, and now about 40 years after he went to cat-heaven I still miss him.  However, it's good that you now have a new bright light to focus your attention on.

The mind boggles what you were searching for...
