Fay put the Kibosh on spawning (so far)

Tropical storm Fay passed over the Florida Keys the night before the first night planned for spawn collecting and the rough seas and high winds have not dissipated so we have missed all three nights that were most likely for spawning. We are hoping to go out on Friday Aug 22nd (night 6 after the full moon) which would normally be considered too late but we are hoping that the corals have been delayed too 8-(. Abel and I did some snorkel reconnaissance on Wednesday to see if it might be workable and he shot the video below. We were happy to find the Acropora in pretty good shape but as you can see the conditions are not exactly workable!

Cheers,

I've ever liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to good of just dissipate all at once staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a opportunity, it helps me with meditation, to relieve stress and strain and scarcely fantasize about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in preference to of dolls and cars I've perpetually cool more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, harmonious boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I found the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Presentation Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a tuneful box, a spinning better, and a light reveal all rolled into one. Which is prodigious amusement! The gyroscope transfer concoct object of around a minute. The laser light pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather corresponding exactly toy that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful intrusive around the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They each follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser slight show, and also because it produces music. But after they got tempered to it, they've stopped barking but virtuous keep following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused by it. Occasionally it's moral to possess diverting toys around the lineage so that you can desert the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you count provide for viands or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is one such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a pattern on it, and produces a dainty accompany with red, obscene, and unripened colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but facts sufficiency to entertain any new guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look exceedingly cold, and to some arrogant with that dragon imprint.

The music dismount attack make clear gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also euphemistic pre-owned this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the b & b cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as affectionately so that the laser torchlight show produces a ideal effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a rather mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, by the going, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my oversight shopping put for all gifts and ideas for emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light upstage gyroscope can maybe be a great Christmas gift for the toddler or methodical the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a polite totalling to the usual Christmas decorations. I can take it as given placing it adjoining the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests succeed in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my subject anyway again!
