Everyone hi again
Minnosh has her own web site if anyone is curious about her:http://www.catchow.com/homepages/cat...p?pageid=43563
We have adopted Yumosh just 3.5 months ago, so she doesn't have a web site yet, but will have it for sure. I will post one of her pics soon.
The fish forum I follow is called tropical fish centre (http://www.tropicalfishcentre.co.uk/
) I have one of each fish: male guppy, black molly, red eye tetra, albino corry, cherry barb, blue platty, zebro danio & long fin danio in a 25 gallon tank. There were 2 more male guppies, a female betta & a silver molly before but they were all gone when we returned from our 3-week long trip to Turkey
I think there is a killer in the tank & I am suspicious of either the male guppy or the long fin danio.
Tigger, what is your forum's address ?
Most Turks don't drink Turkish coffee with a cube of sugar between their teeth. I know some people do, but I have never encountered any !
I think (I might be wrong) people who live on the eastern part of Turkey (close to Arabic countries) drink coffee & tea like that
I was living on the western coast (across from Greece).. You make the coffee either without sugar or with as much sugar as you want. And you never filter the coffee (it's in powdered form of course). Some people don't like the remeinings, but you shake the "fincan", the Turkish coffee mug, when you are about the finish the coffee so as to make the powdered parts suspended in the liquid part & try to drink as much of it. The remainings are used for fortune telling
threeleggedkat, how do you know that anyway ??
Well the most serious problem in Turkey, I think, is people not wanting to spay/neuter the animals. I know, it's same everywhere, but people in Turkey think that it's a bad thing to interfere with their lives and to spay/neuter them without their wills !!! There are dogs and cats everywhere and when a rabies incident happens, (it always does once a year), the municipalities try killing cats/dogs with poisoned meat
Sometimes owned cats and dogs eat some of those meat & are killed also
Well, there is not that much respect for human life in Turkey, so how can you expect one for animals ??
In the Turkish forum, I wrote something about spaying/neutering. And I try to answer questions about health/behavior problems. (As I said before, people don't know much about cats & dogs; even most of the veterinerians !!) When I don't know the answer, I search it through internet or from my books, translate it to Turkish & answer the question...
And yes, the economy is reeeaaallly bad in Turkey nowadays
Toylady, I have never been to the northern part of TR. Actually, there are many natural beauties, historical places, beautiful beaches etc. in TR, but I have only been to few places
It has been only 6 months since we moved to Austin. I don't know many places here. We were living 2 hrs away from Chicago for 1.5 years before.
