Four more videos from Feb 5-15 almost a day off lol

Worked the last 3 nights & planning on a bit of sleep then off to a few school's, Barb's van wouldn't start so she took my vehicle to work, so I had to deal with that after 3 hours sleep (that's were the Little Bit of sleep comes in, lol) than off to 5 school's to check in starting with Formosa, Walkerton X 2, Hanover then Breslau, it's nice that Breslau was open until 5:30, that allowed me 45 minutes to change a few things & talk to some of the staff before everyone was leaving, who stays at school on Friday until 5:30, dedicated staff. It was time to change some food drop of more chemicals & replace a feeder that fell into one of the aquariums when the students were changing the water. Part of the job/volunteering lol.

Two Days Six School Salmon Hatchery Visits

I was on the road Monday & Tuesday stopping at 8 schools but getting video at 6 of them, some of the schools are doing very well & a few are having trouble, Pump quit at one, GFI plug blew at another & wasn't caught right away, etc...a few of the salmon are really skinny as if they haven't learn to eat & some are looking really healthy, everybody's watching them closely. 29 Schools between 6 different clubs & they are talking about wanting more next year, hopefully bigger & better. The Students really enjoy watching them Hatch & Grow & have another story each time I stop in to any of the schools. Tight Lines
