    Ethics of the Aquarium Trade

    in Environment

    Join Ray Owczarzak in welcoming an old friend Doug Ludemann.  Doug and I worked together a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.  (Sorry for the reference). Doug has years of experience in the public and private aquarium fields and currently owns and operates Fish Geeks. 


    I’ve wanted to do a show on the ethical issues involved in the aquarium hobby and field for some time.  When I first began my pet trade career at the age of 16 at a small mom and pop shop in Illinois, I was wide eyed and ignorant to the dark side of the trade.  I sold snake head after snake head destined for home tanks without any thought about the possible impacts.  Now that I live in Maryland, where the snake head makes advances year after year in waterways, I wonder about my past actions.


    What other dark secrets are there in the aquarium hobby?  I think, in retrospect, that any financial endeavor that requires the sale of live animals inherently has a few dark secrets.  In fact, they are too numerous to mention in an hour show, but we will give it a shot. 


    Don’t get me wrong, I believe that the industry and hobby have many ethical companies and the preponderance of hobbyists are top notch.  But as the saying goes, a few bad apples…  Hopefully the discussion will provide some food for thought on the businesses that listeners use.  Making ethical choices are up to the end consumer.  We as a people have the best chance at guiding the future.  So don’t just sit back be a Witness, but make a change for the better.  As always, I hope that people join in the conversation and call in with thoughts and stories.

    in Hobbies

    Wow we are at year 2 already.  Year 1 just flew by.  Which is par for the course with the My Little Pony toy line.  Year 1 is always small as Hasbro dips their toes into the water to test it out first before diving right in.  Now here we are starting year 2 where as always it is a barage of stuff going on.  So let's dive right on in shall we.


    Please note that we will be using multiple sites for this one including:


    My Little Wiki


    MLP Land


    Strawberry Reef's site


    If any of our listeners know of a good website to use please contact us.

    Please note that we maybe late in starting our topic due to issues beyond our control.  If co-hosts are not yet at their computers or we get distracted please bare with us.  We are not always perfect.  PONY HUGS.


    Also if we continue to be off topic we will change the topic of the show to reflect that.  Also we don't take random callers due to the issues we have had with random people in the chat rooms.  We keep this a family friendly show and want to keep it that way.

    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author Gabriella Kovac. She'll be joining me on the Author Chat show to discuss her new book, Georgina: Holocaust Survivor Stories.


    About the book:


    December 1944, whilst heavy snows fall over Budapest and soldiers battle for the streets, Georgina, a young Jewish woman, is nearly starving to death with her newborn son.


    The battle outside is one of the most savage of the entire war. She
    knows that to go into is virtually a death sentence. But she must find food within the next few hours or her baby will certainly die.
    For Georgina there is no choice. Alone and completely vulnerable, she heads out into the freezing cold.


    About the author:


    Gabriella Kovac was born in Hungary, Just after the Second World War had drawn to a close. She lived through the Hungarian uprising against the Communists in 1956, and remembers vividly Russian tanks sitting under her bedroom window. Through the genius of her mother Georgina, their family managed to leave the Communist bloc and come to Australia in 1957. Gabriella is a passionate public speaker, chef (her favourite dish is Hungarian Goulash) and has been very successful in fashion, even authoring the book "Magic Drafting," which can also be found on Amazon. Throughout her life, Gabriella has been inspired by her mother's amazing tenacity, enthusiasm and will to live.
