People have e-mailed me the following comments about my various pond web pages. I have never received so many positive comments for anything in my life. I surely do not deserve it.
I've been called "The Pond Queen," "The Pond Goddess," "The Pond Ruler," "The Pond Angel," and "The Pond Mistress" (sounds x-rated!) but I'm just another pond lover like you! I just want to share the information I've learned, and the experiences I've had! Thanks for making my efforts worthwhile! Robyn.
"I just visited your pond page. Wow, I'm very impressed by your determination to have a pond....Just thought I'd tell you how great your page is." - Sheryl, 10/5/97.
"You have a nice page going there! I love your pond!" - Kellie, 10/5/97.
"Also, let me say that it is great to find a web site that seems to discuss the very questions we have had since filling our pond." - Brock, 11/28/97.
"Thank you for your frankness in regards to building a pond....I...have been trying to build a pond for over a year! One main reason that I have not is because of what you discovered yourself...that is, you know more than the people who are building this thing!!...Thanks again for your web site, I will be visiting it often." - John, 8/10/98.
"I just wanted to say "Thank You!" for posting your 'learning experiences' with your pond. Despite the fact that many people only post their successes (utilizing the web as a "trophy case"?), it's your kind of page/information that is BY FAR the most informative, the most useful to others considering similar projects...." - Eric, 8/22/98.
"Just wanted to let you know how much I love your web page....Anyway, love your site and your pond is beautiful...." - Cindi, 8/26/98.
"...I think your web site is the best on the internet! It is so full of great information. Thank you for the service you are providing to those of us who have built ponds and are trying to learn and get our ponds established...." - Mary Ann, 3/25/99.
"Hi, while I was looking for information about keeping turtles in a pond. I happened to stumble upon your website! And what a blessing it was! Not only did I find the information I was looking for but I found lots more....Your website was surprisingly very useful. You see I am not an amateur pond owner, I make ponds and am an experienced hobbyist. My point is your website read so well and is so filled with useful tid bits that I just had to e-mail you about it! Your website is one of the very few websites that provides the information about ponds that I believe people want. I have visited many watergardening sites as well as homepages and other pond sites, but yours is truly unique. I was shocked because your website looks like a regular homepage, nothing fancy. But the information is quite fancy indeed!...I look forward to referring people to your page...." - Michael, 5/7/99.
"I have just checked out your web site and found it to be great. Lots of Info. Good Job!...You have a great pond too. I love it." - Doran, 7/6/99.
"I really enjoy your pond page....Your site is one of the most detailed and informative I've found. Thanks for sharing all the good information...." - Rob, 1/1/00.
"I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic page....You gave me advice a few months ago about what to do with my eggs. Well enclosed is a pic of mommy, daddy and all 500,000,000 children : ) ....You truly are an inspiration to us novice pond keepers and it is fantastic to have someone like you to whom we can turn. You not only give advice and suggestions but also tell us where you went wrong to prevent others from doing the same. You truly are amazing...." - Lee, 3/17/00.
"I just stumbled across your web pages. Excellent!!! Your information and understanding of ponds is quite informative. Many's the time I've gone through the trial and error process in setting up (and it's still going on)...." - Bruce, 4/4/00.
"I can only say thank you for such an excellent and well informed site. I still have at least three quarter's of it to read yet. However I am off to buy some watercress and start the veggie way of preventing algae...." - Sonya, 5/18/00.
"I just wanted to say that I found your pages to be incredibly helpful and informative. I was searching for information on how to control the algae in my itty bitty 30 gallon pond and learned a lot when I landed on your site. Thanks for putting (it) all together in a form that a beginner like me can understand and use. I'm off to buy another pond plant! Thanks again...." - Kim, 5/25/00.

"...So, I decided to look up on the internet if they (black beetles) were detrimental or beneficial to the health of our fish and water plants, and I ran across your site! I read every word, and looked at every picture. I enjoyed it so much! I didn't know that there were so many aquatic plants or that one person would want to have so many various and sundry ponds!!...Thanks for a fun and informative site!..." - Betsy, 6/29/00.
"...Just wandering around the net and stumbled upon your pond page. Very impressive....I particularly appreciated your helpful advice to ponders who are building. Most other ponders' pages just put a few small pictures. I like the quality of information. I also like the effort to present a very natural rather than formal shape." - Rick, 7/4/00.
"...I am most impressed with the extensive information that you have shared....Thanks for taking the time to document your experiences. They are a great help to those of us starting on this unique hobby." - Pat, 7/18/00.

"Can I first of all congratulate you on a brilliant, brilliant website. I was recommended to visit it by another new UK ponder who said that I would find out just about everything I could ever wish to know about the upkeep of my new pond and fish there.
