Saturday Night Open Thread

I'm sure there's news to report, but I haven't seen much today.

Does anyone have something special planned for Father's Day?

Here's an open thread, all topics welcome.

    I just put a chocolate rum cake (5.00 / 3) (#1)

    in the oven in a castle shaped pan for tomorrow.  Both my husband and Joshua have a castle fascination so I bought a cake pan for castle cakes a few years ago.  It gets used a couple of times a year.  Our "father" came in the kitchen and saw it going in and started jumping up and down a little, then he started laughing because he is over forty years old but he can still get excited about someone baking a castle cake for him.  We will serve him some breakfast in bed too, and I got him a compound miter saw but it is one of the new ones where the saw goes back and forth as well on rails.  He has a nice compound miter saw but he has been drooling over these new versions for over a year now.  He has to sell his old saw though, no more tool hoarding!  It gets obnoxious.

    for make a wish
    let me know.

    bad night.when I woke up very early this morning to come in to work so I can still have a part of a day later I found both Earl the ripsaw catfish and the arowana dead.
    I dont have a clue what happened.  I tested the water and it seemed fine so I gave some to my fish buddy to test.  
    might have been the feeder fish I had just given to them.
    anyway, moment of silence.  they both had a good run.  I was finally able to weigh the catfish.  he was 9 pounds.

    to work.

    Sorry to hear the bad news. Sounds like poisoning from the feeder fish. Amazing that the catfish got so big.

    I'm so sorry about your fish, what a HUGE catfish.  Thank you so so much for checking into the Make a Wish thing for me.  I'm soooooooooo tickled.  This will be even more special now!  I have to place a puppy in about half an hour into his new home.  Email me at liberalbarking@yahoo.com and we can get a bit more connected when I get back later today :)  Happy Father's Day.....when you have furkids to look after they can often be not much different from human children.

    That's not fair.  Does the same rule apply to say.... your jewelry?

    horns the Marlins gave away caused the Fish to lose to the Rays?  According to Marlins' mgr., home plate umpire messed up a substitution.  Sporting News
