A privilege to be able to vote here. I love the 'burp'!

All those puffs made me smile - I'd post one of mine if I could catch the moment. But that Diodon is in another class. The glowing sharp nosed puffer would get my second vote if there were such a thing.

Yes, I am up at 3:40 am - waiting for the rain to clear before getting my astronomical telescope out to have a look at that cluster of planets. I've never seen the planet Mercury.

Then guess what - water changes!

Thanks, surlaW Head...
