    yeah that REALLY stinks. I was trying to get the temperature back to where it needed to be and I think the temp may have gone up to 104 a little bit, but I have it back down to 101 now. Its day 19, I candled yesterday and I see lots of dark masses with just a little air pocket in them.

    5 were duds, but many of them are rip roaring and ready to go! Wish me luck! I should have fuzzy-butts by next Weekend!!!
