Jim has always claimed that he was an artist first and a programer second, I think thats one thing that makes his aquarium stand out from the rest. There are others that are catching up, or passing in some ways what he has done as far as the logistics goes, but they will have a very difficult time matching his artistic flair.

By the way, I went to an incredibly nice aquarium shop today - Old Town Aquarium in Chicago. Probably the nicest aquarium store I've ever seen. The tanks were all so clean I thought they couldn't be more than a year old, but when I asked how long the store had been there, I was told "30 years!" They have the tanks cleaned weekly. For anyone interested, the address is 1538 N Wells St. Chicago, IL 60610. (312) 642-8763

I'll be driving within a few miles of there today on my way to the GCCA swap... Depending on what happens at the swap maybe I'll stop by on the way back, thanks Jim!

Jim,
Long trip (or was it related to Jill's school?) - Did you get any nice photos? (of fish - not Jill )

The fish in the pics at http://www.oldtownaquarium.com sure look nice (the yellow tang ant the trigger is exceptionally clean).

Doc,
GCCA? Is that the Gulf Coast Cycling Association, Greater Colesville Citizens Association, Graduate Careers Council of Australia or Georgia Christian Counselors Association? Then again, Greater Chicago Cichlid Association seems somewhat appropriate...

Tiny - Yes, we were visiting Jill at school, then celebrating an anniversary. Now we're in Asheville, North Carolina. Going to see the Biltmore Estate tomorrow.

But I didn't take the time to stop at the place Jim mentioned, once I had the fish bought I rushed home ASAP to get them in the tank. So far everyone's doing great but I'll talk about it in my Nano Rift thread later...

Jim,

You are only a hop, skip, and a jump from my neck of the woods now. If you head back this way give me a call and stop by..........

You need to go up and spend a few days in and around Gatlinburg in the Smokies, and then head on down to Atlanta and see the Georgia aquarium.

Went to the Biltmore Estate today, and had a really great time. Got a lot of ideas for the new house. I wish they allowed photography. At least the Casio is small enough not to be noticed. For our British friends, the Biltmore house is significant because it is so typical of our "second homes" - country residences which most middle-class Americans own.

Your second house looks like that?

What does your first house look like? Versailles?

So what did you think Jim? How long did you get to spend there, and did you take any of the "behind the scenes tours"?

Look, Cliff. This time it was the European who missed the American irony. There goes your theory...

Oh, I'm sure Wiz got it

Jav - Spent the whole day there, but didn't do any behind-the-scenes tours. Next time.

Don't forget that I already know what Jim's house looks like - or bits of it, at any rate!

Of course you do, but that killed my joke, so I chose to overlook it.
