The words no Koi Keeper ever wishes to here. :(

A lot of you know I keep Koi, my pictures and videos are there for all to see. They’re a huge part of my life, I love them, just as much as I love my cat, Spooky and my Parrot, Bobby.

The latest video of course https://vimeo.com/105432969

But, you don’t know that I also help moderate over a few forums. Mostly the guys there play nice, which is always good to see. And I help where and wherever I can. Locally in my area, I’ve helped a few valued friends. And hope to continue to do so.

But there are some very worrying concerns within the hobby a virus called KHV which everyone knows and learns about. It was with great sadness that I’ve followed one of our forum members tragic experience this last week in their collection getting sick, to the Final Diagnosis and euthanasia of their whole pond. 😦

I won’t take any of their post to put here, but wanted to link to the forum because of all the love and support Bryan and Rosemary have had there.

The posts speak for themselves, and I am very proud of our community and the site for what it is. As far as a hobby goes, you will never, ever have friends like you do here.

Completely different to the bird community. There is no where near as much nonsense. I am a proud and happy Koi Keeper, and I hope that Bryan and Rosemary may start again. With love and support anything is possible.

I wish them well for the future.

Wishing everyone all the best for 2014 :)

This won’t be a long one, as I am still pretty much under the weather. Like everyone else we all reflect on the things that happen and the things we’ve been through. 

In 2013, I met some of the best people ever. You all know who you are. And for me the most wonderful Coach/editor, in EJ Runyon. Who has helped me attain one of my best writing achievements, TSK is almost half way there. The process seems to some to be long. But I’m primarily a scriptwriter working really hard on my debut novel. It’s goals are high, because of the TV series already penned and in time I know I will see those goals come to fruition. Through the support of these people, I am 100% sure next year will be awesome. 

One of the hardest thing I did was break my arm. It itself had a lot of setbacks. Mostly financially, but emotionally too. I’m on the mend and looking forward to heading back to work after this long hiatus. What it did teach me once again is that there are some friends out there who really matter. And again others who are by the by. It is life, and we learn by the things throw our way. 

 

I am very thankful for the people who have been there for me. My husband the most 🙂 

 

So, all the best to 2014 and may it bring us all what we wish for.
