    ...And the pond's systems are doing fine. The low quality orange Hariwake you see is Junior, the 28" homebred. She is eating a few sinking pellets off the pond bottom, 6 feet down. (The other fish are at different depths swimming above her.) That's clear enough for me.

    It's really lovely...

    Mike,

    Great job. And, VERY well done. Yes, it really is lovely.

    Mike, now that you've compelted your pond when should I anticipate your arrival at my house...with you here I could get this pond done in a week. Maybe, less if you work very hard!

    Seriously, Mike - your pond is beautiful and I cannot wait to see it inperson. As always, I've the rum. Thus, I assume you can pop a can of coke or two?

    Well, Lee, are you once again coming to Orlando in March for the Central Florida Koi Show? (In 2006 it will be the biggest & best unless the Koiphen Show really sky rockets.) If you're here, no doubt I'll find plenty of cokes. ..I'll even break out my own rum so you do not get hit with import duties sneaking some in! LOL



    ... I volunteered to be vendor coordinator for the show, so I expect I'll be running hither & yon Thursday, Friday & early mornings (doing water changes for wet vendors). But, if you travel from the Caymans, I'll certainly drive across town! ...Peace.

    Of course, I am going to be at Orlando again...it's a terrific show!

    Yes, Mike,

    I do plan on again being at the Orlando Show in 06'.

    Perhaps, if my old heart can again handle the stress, I may also enter a fish or two?

    As for my bringing a signfiicant qauntity of our rum from our island to Orlando. Don't you agree that it should be reasonably easy for me to do, particularly if I place a faux plastic koi into a poly bag with a large quantity of rum - then seal the entire package with a prescribed rubber band to seal the bag and then place the package into a cardboard carton marked LIVE FISH!

    What's the worse that can happen?

    ....I would imagine some inspector at US customs opening the box where he/she sees the fish soaking in the bag of funny coloured water (rum) - he smells the bag and he/she says, "this fish must have died in route, let it through to the recepient".

    Hug's

    Your pal

    Years ago, Lee, before my collegiate daughter was even born, my favorite destination when a long weekend or vacation could be taken, was Jamaica. It was not the beaches or sea that drew me back. It was the whole atmosphere after a day of sipping rum. At one point the flavored rums were my fancy and I tried to sample every one ....

    But, now, I am an aging, mature contributing member of society with a professional image to uphold. [Please remember to bring dark sunglasses with that rum. ]

    Growing old should make you wiser, not more mature!

    In the event you were not previously privy to this information -

    My company is one of the largest producers of rum in this island. In fact, I believe we have the number one selling rum. Or, maybe, it's number two?

    Whichever number volumn we sell, we've been very successful in the sale of our Cayman Island rums...now is produced in white, dark, vanilla and coconut.

    Along with the rum, we also offer spices, flavourings, caps, shirts, cigars and a whole catalogue of souvenirs.

    You could find more information out - on our rum by going to our company web site www.islandcompaniesltd.com or www.bigblackdick.com

    Gosh, I hope Brian won't toss this out, regardless of it's blantant commercialism, as I've three (3) shipments of new 'expensive' fish arriving this week from Ray Abells; and you know I have to pay for them somehow...

    All the best,

    Hi Lee

    I bought the bottle you donated to the auction. I have not been a big rum drinker since my collage days. However I will tell you that bottle brought back a lot of memories and is one of the tastiest bottles of rum we have enjoyed. If another bottle makes in the auction I promise to give it a good home.
