Re: optima battery prices............

I just purchased an Interstate 6-volt (1-VHD) for $153.95. I've always had good luck with the brand. I considered an Optima at that point, but couldn't pull the trigger on another (~)$80.

Re: O/T Explain water bucket mouse trap

Lots of methods out there. Basically 'walking the plank' until the weight shifts enough to where they fall in the bucket.
