"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

My Aquarium: Lake Chatuge

Twyla and I go to the lake as often as we can. Summer is short in the mountains. I feed the fish every time we go.
It has gotten to the point that when we get to our regular spot, the blue gills are hovering there, waiting. We plop our folding camp chairs down in the water with the seats at about surface level. While one of us is reading our devotional material, the other is tossing bread or cheese into the water around our legs.
As you can see from the picture, I can now get down in the water and feed them directly out of my hand.
While it doesn't quite make up for my old 75 gallon salt water tank that I had down in Tampa, it does provide some fascination and entertainment.
