To whom it may concern (everyone):I was pondering the internation impact of my blog and so I used Babelfish to translate this website into German. It seemed to work great. But since I don't speak German I decided to copy my most recent post from the German version of Danny's Blog Cabin ("Kabine Blog Dannys") and have Babelfish translate it from German to English. This is the result:Good messages. Our 3 swordtails is still very healthy and active. Yesterday main header I 3 platies with Walmart up. I think that the certain multiplicity of Sunset Fire Platy or Xiphophorus is called maculatus, which is Latin thus "resembles its own babies eats". They seem to do in our container well and them also life supports are there, should we any baby see to fish once.Nun da lustig! ("Now that's funny!" or "Now there merrily!?")
Good news. Our 3 swordtails are still very healthy and active. Yesterday I picked up 3 platies at Walmart. I think the particular variety is called Sunset Fire Platy or Xiphophorus maculatus, which is Latin for "Likes to eat its own babies". They seem to be doing well in our tank and since they're also live-bearers, we should be seeing some baby fish sometime.
Here's something cool. I've mentioned that Bible Gateway is a good resource, but it just got better. I noticed today that you can now search The Message Bible. It's a recent paraphrase that is supposed to be pretty interesting and fun to read. I've wanted to check it out, but I didn't want to shell out the money for a paper copy. Now I can look at it for free!
My friend Ryan broke his leg last Friday during the football game. Click here to see the x-ray of his leg. The good news is that Ryan is back home and doing well. He was feeling healthy enough to beat me in 3 straight games of NCAA Football 2004 on his Playstation 2 today.
Fish Update: Our 3 swordtails are doing just great. We went to Petco yesterday to pick up some more fish. I brought some water for them to test and they said everything was fine except for my PH, it's too high. That meant I couldn't get any fish that day. I bought some goop that's supposed to bring it back down to a healthy range. I also bought my own testing kits so I can find out that my water is bad before I drive 45 minutes to Petco.

I got back yesterday from a two day retreat for area ministers. It was a very good time. Since it was the first year for the retreat, there weren't very many people. I did make some new friends, get some time to relax and improve my focus on God and the job he's got me doing.
Today we finally put in some new fish. Our tank should be fully recovered from our bout with the ich. My friend gave me three fish from his own tank. They appear to be Red Swordtails (Xiphophorus helleri). Swordtails are livebearers and we have one male and two females, which means that if the fish get a little privacy we'll soon have a bunch of tiny babies swimming around in our tank. Fish babies are called 'fry,' which is funny to me because they're way to small to actually fry. (I presume . . . I mean, I haven't tried to deep fry any helpless little fish. Really.)
