I wish I could brag about the size of our membership, but I can't. However, I can brag about the quality of our membership. It's not the size of our Club that matters the most, but rather the quality.

We recently returned from a one week trip to Los Cabos, Mexico. One of the highlights of this trip was the Whale-watching excursion. This was almost too exciting for an old guy like me. The sea was rough and we all got soaked to the bone. We were staring into the waves, hoping to get a glimpse of a whale. Neil, up front, yells; "hey did you see that?" Then Debbie yells;" I saw something " Again, nothing but false hopes. I was hoping that this trip would end soon. We were all soaking wet and cold and we were bouncing around like pop-corn at the cinema. Then, all of a sudden, I saw a tail rising out of the water no more then a hundred yards from our boat. This tail was wider then the length of my car. This is no Tale. It was the start of a breath-taking spectacle. I believe these Hump-Backs were showing off. They mate in this area and then travel to Alaska, to later return to Mexico to give birth. A baby Hump-back whale is 12 feet long at birth.

Son, Neil went on a fishing trip and caught three Mahi-Mahis. They are also known as Dolphin fish because of a resemblance to dolphins. Mahi-Mahis get to be about 5 feet long. The captain kept these fish. You are not allowed to sell them. Either you eat them or you return them to the water

We walked by a place in town which was called the Fish Resort. This is where you stick your feet into an aquarium, and a large school of little, toothless fish, called Garra Rufa will suck at your feet and remove any dead skin cells. Did I try this? Heck no. I am extremely ticklish and I get the Willies just thinking about it. This therapy started in China and Korea .

My Compost worms are thriving and my discus love them, as do angels and other larger fish. They can be cut up to feed to your smaller fish. If you have not as yet started a culture, let me know. A culture is easy and cheap to start up and maintain. There is no smell and it provides an excellent source of food for your aquatic pets.

Our Spring Auction is coming up soon and I hope you will once again,help us out. This Auction is usually the bigger and better one, but we need you to make it a success.

Proud President
