  • JANUARY 21, 2019 – Its the dead of Winter and of course UNYKA is not holding any meetings until late March because of the weather up here in the cold North Country and Upstate NY.  However!  We are planning for the rest of 2019 with several ideas being seriously bandied about. Believe it or not, we are actually talking about an online meeting using some sort of conferencing software – Skype, etc.  The idea is to talk about our plans and try to come up with a great first 2019 meeting.  Plans are still to meet regularly in Utica, NY at the Casa Too Mucha restaurant.  Len & Mary are also planning another ‘Killie BBQ” at their farm for sometime in the Spring or Summer.  Last year we were able to a bit of sampling of the fish nearby and came up with a number of interesting species ranging from

  • … if I will ever be able to really keep killies again. There is no doubt I truly enjoy keeping fish and like to work with them, but unfortunately it is becoming more and more difficult to make the effort because of my legs.  Sadly I can’t stand for more than 5 minutes with my calf(s) becoming very painful.  It’s not exactly cramping, but much more like shin splints (if you have ever had them) and a burning ache.  I literally have to sit with my legs up for 5-10 minutes for the pain to subside. It is very frustrating in many aspects of my life – for example, I cannot walk around Walmart, I have to use a scooter.

  • I have been staring at KillieNutz Online for some time now and wondering what I could/should do to make it an active site that people make a regular stop on their internet travels.  At one time several years ago, KillieNutz was a very active website.  Now it is rarely visited. I came to the realization, the best way to do this is to ask.  So what would excite you enough to visit KillieNutz regularly?  Please let me know either here as a comment or send me and email at killienutz@killienutz.com . Some things I am implementing starting today include: AKA/Killie Clubs News (including international groups. (I could sure use some help with people sending me what is going on anywhere.) Daily checks on new species/name changes. An ongoing review of available killies in the hobby. Regular updates to all species of killifish. (This takes time to prepare and put online.)
