 beaver deceiver adjustments:  letting out more water than we want:
  - requires some discussion.  Upon investigation/reflection, there is more water in the beaver pond than there was when the upper deck was originally installed - but about 10" less than there was a month ago.

  - the family of ducks in the pond this morning seemed perfectly happy with the level.


 void...I think we are happy with what we have
