well, I really messed up yesterday. I got my nice titanium heater about 2 weeks ago and it was working fine. And I got my skimmer running nicely. But I don't have my RO-unit yet, so I have to do the top of myself (That'll change after Christmas).
And some things happened in the last week (more about that later), so I kinda forgot to do much about the tank. So the disaster struck yesterday...
The water level in my sump went too low, so the pump of the skimmer ran dry... for a while...
Then, the heater is in the sump as well, and was on top of the water level and you can imagine, what happened. It burned up... And since it's mounted to the wall of my acrylic sump it also burned up the wall of that sump. And there came this really really bad smell of rotten eggs out of my sump, which my fish and corals probably wouldn't like much.

A recent trip to the Hollywood Bowl brought to mind a bad luck story that happened to our family on an earlier visit. It’s just one of those stories – bad luck from beginning to end.

For those who don’t know, the Hollywood Bowl is a large amphitheater, scenically nestled in the Hollywood Hills. During the summer, there are nightly concerts, featuring various “concept shows”, from a Cuban festival to sing-along Les Miserables.

My friends Cliff and Amanda and I recently attended an anniversary tribute to the Dodgers’ fifty years in Los Angeles, headlined by Randy Newman, who wrote the great score for the baseball movie, The Natural. The show also included an array of some of least familiar Dodgers anyone could possibly imagine.

It started to get funny. Instead of superstar Dodgers like Steve Garvey and Sandy Koufax, each player that was introduced was less famous than the one before. Remember Matt Luke? I don’t. And I’m a fan. Some of these guys, I don’t think got out of spring ...

Two girlfriends and I didn't have anything better to do and one of them had an idea - the three of us would play a game of Monopoly and the two losers would do amateur night at our local strip club. She said it would put any game of strip poker to shame.

Well...I was crushed. I landed on Park Place with three houses on it :-o They were both laughing and pointing as I gave all of my money and property to the girl who owned PP (the one who came up with the idea, btw).

I've had a terrible last few weeks. My car broke down, and it'll cost $1,000 to fix it. I'm enrolled in grad school without a scholarship; so that equals way too much for me to afford. I tried to ride a bike part of the way to school, but the chain got stuck and it took me a while--with a screwdriver and hammer--to get it free.

My dad doesn't work--just plays solitaire--and so my family is in constant need of money.

The fast-food place where I work decided not to schedule me next week. I edited $250 worth of documents for someone and she never gave me my money, just disappeared. Today, I was trying to mail a package and the only FedEx I could get to on the way to school was the only FedEx where their mailing system had been wiped out by the storms here.

This is driving me crazy!
