Data the Beta

Data was my fish.  He died through the night.  He seemed fine before I went to bed...nothing unusual but he was gone when I woke up to give my cat her morning pill.  I'm gonna miss the little guy.  Our little chats...the way he acted "dog like" when it was feeding time...the way he puffed up and defended his territory if you stared him down.  He was my first fish since childhood.  I'm sad he's gone.

Powerful Movie

 I just watched The Stoning of Soraya M.  This is a must see film.  A grim reminder of the world we still live in today.  This is NOT a feel good movie but I highly recommend it.  There are two heroes that stand out in this movie.  First of course, Soraya.  Second, her aunt Zahra who refused to keep quiet.

Watch it.
