I feel very disappointed with where Google has taken Google Plus. Ever since Gundotra left, they have just let it all go to heck. They had a really good thing going here, and they squandered it away.

Rabbit mucoid enteropathy treatment with Berberine.
Here is a new article about my experience with using Berberine, a food supplement, to treat mucoid enteropathy (mucoid enteritis) in rabbits.
https://angorarabbit.com/hutch/viewpage.php?page_id=24

Mucoid enteropathy, also known as mucoid enterities, is a severe, watery diarrhea of baby rabbits that may also include mucous in the stool. It is usually lethal, extremely difficult to treat, and afflicted rabbits die very soon after the onset of the illness. I have saved several kits that were sick with mucoid enteropathy by giving them Berberine. What is nice about Berberine is that it is available over the counter without a prescription.

Today I started the herd's twice annual prophylactic treatment for coccidia, by treating their water with Di-Methox. I will keep this going for five days.

Resistance varies from region to region and herd to herd. Sulmet is ineffective in my herd, it seems. So far, the most effective (and most expensive) coccidia infestation treatment seems to be toltrazuril. I keep it on hand for acute, severe cases.

I find that I prefer the OLD version of Google Forms to the New one, because one can write scripts to directly interact with the forms, in the Old version. In the new version, there does not appear to be any way to do that.

I wonder how they will bring back the missing functionality without having a proper menu bar etc.

Experiment with melting plastic rabbit feed bag into wonderful lump that can be sawed and sanded into something.

There are a lot of demos on YouTube with variations of this. Plastic milk jugs and their lids may work best, but it depends on what you have in mind for the final product. I just wanted to try this, to see what properties the lump would have when made from woven poly feed bags.

I should have cut my strips into much smaller pieces! I think no larger than 1/4 inch squares would have been optimum.

I used a disposable pie pan for baking, but I plan to make a trip to the second hand store for some used skillets and cookie sheets that will do as well or better.

The process was not as messy as I expected. I lined my pie pan with baking paper.

I started out by baking the plastic at 340 degrees in my convection oven. After I was confident that nothing bad was going to happen, I turned the temperature up to 350 degrees. That should be the limit, because HDPE plastics are said to start burning at higher temperatures.

Every five to ten minutes, I put on baking mitts, got the pan out of the oven, then folded the edges of the baking paper over, and tucked the edges of the plastic back onto the body of the melting mass, and kneaded it a bit. Then I placed it back into the oven for another round. I did that about four times or so.

The plastic shrinks a great deal as it melts. The final, cooled lump is one whole feed bag!

Ideally, one would place the still warm lump between two boards and clamp them together, to make the piece stronger and better bonded.

I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to playing with the process some more.

Using Google Forms
Setting up a voting system on Google Forms and Sheets. There is a list of club members. They enter their email address in one form. The process retrieves their Ballot Token from the list, and emails it to them, along with the URL to the actual Ballot Form. Setting up the code to do the emailed response was the fun part.

When they submit the Ballot Form, the process emails them a confirmation that contains what they submitted in the form. Again, setting that up was the fun part.

While working with Triggers for Google Sheets, I was puzzled about how, when there are multiple forms linked to a Sheet, how to set up a trigger to run from Submit of a specific, designated form. I found that simply using the console to assign triggers to functions would make them all fire when any of the linked forms was used.

I learned that this function can be run to create a trigger for a specific form:


function createNewTrigger() {
ScriptApp.newTrigger('sendVoteConfirmation')
.forForm('Form_ID_Number_Here')
.onFormSubmit()
.create();
}

Now using my Karma Go for internet access! Unlimited internet for $50 a month, which is MUCH less expensive than what I had before. I was using my phone as a wifi hotspot, but I always went through my monthly 22GB data limit well before a month was through. I have no other options for internet at my location.

Karma Go uses the Sprint network, which some people like, and some people hate. However, the device and connection seem to be working super well for me. There is a money back guarantee on the device. If you want to try it, this link should give you $10 off.

The devices are normally $150, but are now on sale at $99.

I ordered mine on Dec. 3, and it arrived today, so it was an 18 day wait. If not for the holidays and weather slowing down UPS, I would have gotten it last Thursday, Dec 17.

Yeah, I thought about whether to accept their offer of refunds, but it is still a better deal than what I was using previously, out here in the boonies.

Angora Rabbit breeder, ARBA rabbit showman, hand spinner, and web developer.
Introduction
Greetings, fellow pluskins! I breed Angora Rabbits for shows and for fiber production. I also do web development.

If you are interested in Angora Rabbits, please add the AngoraRabbit.com brand page to your circles. Join my Google Plus Angora Rabbits Community!

I am a member of the American Rabbit Breeders Association; if you enjoy the rabbit hobby, you might like Rabbit Breeders Community.


With Kelly Flading, I host a weekly Hangout on Air, the Rabbit Breeders' Hangout.

I am also very interested in web development, which includes PHP, MySQL, and jquery. I wrote a PHP code wizard-generator.

I've been married to Eric since 1980 and we have a daughter and a son, who are both now adults and working in IT. We share our home with several cats and a dog. We have a few horses.

I am interested in people who wear cochlear implants, or who have a relative who wears one, or who are considering whether to get one. My son has had two separate cochlear implant surgeries (for the same side of his head) and is pleased with his. Somewhat related to that, I would be interested in meeting people who like myself, are carriers of the recessive X-linked progressive hearing loss gene.

My LOLs were featured on the home page of Cheezburger.com twice. I was an official AOL chat host back in the mid 90s. I have the oldest Angora Rabbit website. I was once accused of "conducting a campaign against horse psychics."
