Griff - is eclampsia an issue with goats? Calcium injections, perhaps?

Griff 03-08-2012 05:48 AM

I guess it can happen in goats. This particular doe is very sensitive to needles all the time though, not just when pregnant or after birthing. She will sometimes go down when being wormed. Her sister isn't affected in the least. I did give her a goat specific nutrient drench.

Yesterday Max wanted to make a chocolate cake, so we made one.

I decided not to bother looking through umpteen chocolate cake recipes and just make one up myself.

It turned out really well. Moist and chocolaty, but light and fluffy at the same time. It really was a good cake.

Today I've just been reflecting on it a bit and thinking of my Mum. She really was a great cook.

Making that cake yesterday made me feel like she'd have been really proud of me if she could have seen it.

I miss my Mum. Some days more than others. Today a lot.

gosh, now I should be in the sad thread.

I am a sook. :(

You should congratulate yourself. Chocolate cake is very tricky even with a tested recipe. To pull one out of the air like that means you are like a baking Ninja.

Aliantha 03-08-2012 07:33 PM

lol...thanks foot. My big boys would be impressed that someone thinks I'm ninja at something.

That's a cool watch, plt.

Yes, it is.

Just don't dive more than 660 ft with it, or you'll lose the warranty !

BigV 03-08-2012 09:19 PM

a sook? check it: at least you're no chook to make a cake that's choc, chick.

Today started with me in a horrible mood. MB was being crabby and snippy, which, along with knowing I would be cleaning our disaster zone of a living room by myself all day, turned me into Super Bitch.

But now, the living room is lovely and clean. I have a delicious-smelling meatloaf in the oven, a glass of crisp Cava in my hand...and MB texted me from work a little while ago, saying he would help to clean when he got home. No need for that now, but awwww. :lovers:

Thin Mints. One small box equals a lot of happiness.

Griff 03-09-2012 05:36 AM

Ali can pull recipes out of the ferment and plthijinx can do slide rule calculations while flying... all we need are super hero costumes!:cool:
