    I'm not sure how much it vibrates, but some lock washers or cotter keys may help in that situation.

    Today I plated my new utility/landscape trailer, and my truck and car. So, good for another year. Then, had car serviced. I could have done it, but prefer to have them try to find everything else to fix to make some $ off me. Today? Just my license plate lights. $10

    Now, maybe should make a new post, but oh well. Anyone else gearing up for a week from Monday? Some kind of once in 99 years total solar eclipse

    Not far from where we live is supposedly the ideal spot to see the total eclipse but we are sticking around home. The local news is covering it non-stop that day so I'll use them to view the event.

    We attended an informative presentation at our library this week. Got free glasses to view it.

    I need some glasses or something too. Maybe a welding shield... We are not very close, but supposed to have a 90% eclipse, so should be pretty impressive.

    I do find it real interesting that this is such a rare occurrence, and that 7 years later in April, we are due another total solar eclipse that will criss-cross this one's path.

    I tell folks to be ready (or get ready) every day. We don't know God's timetable and plan, but He knows ours. Very exciting times, though to be alive experiencing history!

    I had two sr. does kindle with too many still births apiece. Definitely more than they've had before. It wasn't exceptionally hot, so not sure what's going on. They had a combined total of 16 and are down to 7 living kits. I guess it goes along with my theory on winter and summer breeding gambles. If I don't attempt it, won't get any. Usually if I lose 25-50% it occurs over the first two weeks and not just 2 days. So, it's anyone's guess what I will have left at end of two weeks. Not really looking for advice, just putting it out there so others experiencing similar will know it happens to all of us Rabbit Breeders.

    Sorry for the losses. Hope the rest survive to make it to freezer camp for you. The only up-side I see is you aren't feeding them for 2 weeks and then losing them. :idunno
