I apologize for inconveniences, but this must be done and is LONG overdue.

Aquaponics is a food production system based upon mother-nature’s own method of recycling fish waste by feeding it to plants. In a nutshell, that’s the bare-bones definition. You should also know it is highly adaptable to home-based use, is low maintenance, produces very high amount of food/area (food density), and requires very little external inputs.
How it Works – Layman’s Version
Live fish are grown in a tank. Tank water, which contains fish waste, is pumped from the tank to grow-beds. Grow beds are simple containers filled with gravel and which have plants planted in them on top. Gravel in the grow beds will naturally come to host bacterial colonies which will convert fish waste into plant food. Plants consume the food, water is returned to the fish tank via gravity, and you get to eat organically grown fruits, vegetables, and fish. The fish are happy because their water is kept clean. The plants are happy and grow quickly because they are receiving nutrients 24/7, and you should be happy and healthy having access to home-grown, organically produced food. The only external inputs to the system are electricity and fish food – however even the fish food can be system-grown.
How it Works – Detailed Explanation
You need not understand anything more than the layman’s explanation above in order to get started with Aquaponics. However, a little more knowledge certainly doesn’t hurt and will help you understand how the system works.
Aquaponics takes advantage of mother-nature’s own methods to convert fish waste into plant food. At the heart of this system is what is commonly referred to as the Nitrogen Cycle.
Nitrogen is an essential element necessary for life on Earth as we know it. The Nitrogen Cycle is a series of chemical processes whereby nitrogen from the environment is consumed by living organisms and processed into various different nitrogen-based chemical forms. This is accomplished via a chain of living organisms, each utilizing nitrogen in some way to live, and converting it into another nitrogen-based chemical structure which is then needed by another organism. In this way, nitrogen is continually cycled from the environment, through the biological system, and back into the environment.

Just searching on ‘Flint Knives’ and found this…a Gent to keep an eye out for if you’ve a mind for making a hobby, or business, of flintknapping.
Third Annual Ft. Hamby Pow Wow held in Wilkesboro NC. It was presented by the Blue Ridge Intertribal Pow Wow Association and the W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir. There were many events and crafts centered around Native American Indian Culture. I was particularly interested in flint knapping, which is the art of making arrowheads, spearheads, knives and sharp edged tools out of silica based stone. I met an instructor by the name of Barry who is himself part Cherokee by heritage. He began teaching me about flint knapping by explaining the materials and tools of the craft.
I replied on a post and made a comment regarding how obama’s meth-spiked cocaine habit is killing him and that it’d be safer to snort drain-cleaner than that crap…
WELL…little miss Liberal obamawhore got Butthurt about what I said and managed to get me blocked/banned for an Unknown duration…longer that 24 hours I’m pretty sure, and as this happened last night…I cannot Like, Share, Post…except via through my blogs like this one and the connectivity.
Now, as for you obama-lovers out there…you better all stick your noses in the wind and pay attention to it’s changes…this is NOT your world, and the Americas are NOT your lands.
And Jimmy Carter, the worthless, gutless sack of crap he is, and how he’s heading a fundraiser for Hamas….well, he made his choice.
