    As most of you know I have a test hatch going on. I have candled but I don't think my flash light is strong enough on the light to see so I am going to candle again friday.

    I have had two losses in goats and both are female. So now I have two billies I don't need. The losses occured during the last two stormes they weren't sick but I went out and they were dead. So... I may get out of goats altogether.

    I frequently leave chat because I find that the chat program is fast but causes my computer to fail so I am leaving a lot and not saying much.

    I am also working on my book somewhat and I am not able to chat and write as the chat program hogs my resources.

    I have also been doing some work on my art, and have put up a new piece on my artwanted site.

    I am also working outside moving and getting rid of birds, and restructering my birds for the coming laying season. I have given away another 6 ducks and another 4 birds(buttercups and muscovies).

    I have a guy interested in my guineas and he should be contacting me soon. That is14 more birds gone and it will offset the ones I am hatching. So I can continue being able to feed.

    The horses are doing well but I gave one of them back to the previous owners. I told them to keep the money. The youngest wasn't doing so hot so I gave him back.

    For those of you that are genuinely interested, I personally am fine I am just reeling from losing my two goats and having to deal with an income of 140$ a week. So...

    How are you doing?!

    Sorry to hear about your goats Arklady. I hope you don't stop with the goats if it is something you really enjoy.
    I think it is so neat that you are writing a book. I admire creative people who stick to things. I am simi creative but rarely stick to things (half million almost done projects LOL)

    Here's hoping you the best
