Weekend Project – Day 25

I had hoped to have the clubhouse finished by Christmas. We are so close! I have a new obstacle; One of the dogs has taken to chewing the extension cords. I lost a 100′ extension cord that had served me well for 20 years. And yesterday, I lost a 50′ extension cord that I had used once. Looks like I’m going to a totally 18v rechargeable workshop.

We are now officially done with step 16 of 27. Count Amy’s wardrobe changes.

And a brief night time attempt that failed to accomplish anything.

House Committee Hearing Tomorrow! Your pets are in danger!

I almost let this one slip by. Contact your representative today if you love your pets.

Anyone with pet fish, birds, reptiles, or small mammals will be affected by this bill. Any company selling product or services for pet fish, birds, reptiles or small mammals will be affected by this bill. Would you be impacted by "The Nonnative Wildlife Invasion Prevention Act"?

  • Virtually all fish in an aquarium are not native to the United States
  • Most pet birds are species not native to the US
  • Most reptiles kept as pets are not native to the US
  • Hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and ferrets are not native to the US


I think this comment from Facebook sums it up well:

It’s really backwards. They need to work on this. I’m all for protecting native wildlife and plants from harmful imported critters…but every area will have different problem animals. The problem critter that might thrive in Florida more than likely won’t be a problem in Minnesota. This is a ridiculous way of facing the problem. Needs work. Write your reps!
