Nest in the Bluebird Box

I checked the Bluebird box today. There is a nest inside! I checked a few days ago, nothing but a few pieces of dried grass. The other day I did see Mrs. Bluebird come out of the box, in particular. I’ve seen them sitting near the box often enough, but not alot of actual “in the box” activity. So somewhere, out of my sight, they did their business. Yay!

I hear Eastern Bluebirds all around whenever I’m outside. It’s a lovely sound, a year round sound, but ever the more beautiful in Spring time, with the twitterpatedness of everything. I do believe the Bluebird population is growing here too. There have always been some around, but more and more and more each year. I’m glad to have helped get two new birds out there last year. The first nesting attempt was sabitoshed by some bird, probably European Starlings [dratted things!]. The second nesting attempt alotted three eggs, but only two hatched. I held one of the babies in my hand just a few days before they apparently fledged. I didn’t see them go, but they did seem to go safely. I hope they survived.

Well, I’m rooting for the Bluebirds this year in my backyard, to have two or three successful nesting and fledling launches.

Three New Items Added

Yesterday I had Russell and Victoria make new pictures to scan for the web.

Here you’ll find: Our House by Russell, and the flip side of that page: A Train Named Choo-Choo-Chug-A-Chug, also by Russell.

We now have a router for our network

We got a Speedstream wireless dsl/cable modem router today. It installed seamlessly. Hopefully it will continue as such. It can connect up to 4 ethernet connected computers, and multiple wireless adapted computers. I have both ethernet and wireless adapters for my laptop. Both are working fine. So, now we all are sharing the DSL and local network stuff easily and fast and safe.

Our DSL modem is a Speedstream too, one reason we got the Speedstream router. The other is that it was a good price anyhow. So knowing it was made to work seamlessly, it made it all the better of a choice. We have PPPoE as a connection, and the router takes care of the whole thing. No more of the ISP software that was causing “problems” on the desktop every morning. Ah, I can connect to the internet via the laptop without the desktop being on now. Nice!

I can be online anywhere in the house too, with the laptop, even nicer!

So now, it comes to advanced stuff, there’s a lot more we can do with this router, and it’ll be fun implementing it!

Oh, the Speedstream is made by Seimens, by the way. Our ISP ‘gives’ out the modems, that’s why we have that brand.

Whoo HOOO! Problem solved!

I found a solution to the ICS problem with our DSL connection. I’m networked via an ethernet cable from the desktop, the DSL goes directly into the desktop, and I get it all via a LAN with Ethernet cable.

It’s our cheap shorterm network.

Anyhow, Dial-up, everything was fine. We got DSL on Friday, and fwomp … I couldn’t access first … weather.com, then site after site went down, wouldn’t load for me. Just plain wouldn’t load. The desktop could load anything and everything.

Case in point. If I went to a site that had more than one language interface, or country interface, I could load anything but USA stuff. Searching sites were like this, movie sites, weather sites, etc. Some plain whole websites were inaccessible for me. Homeshool type sites, and it made no sense.

So I finally found a solution. I’ve been typing in questions galore in whatever search engines I COULD use on my computer. Dogpile, for instance. I usually use Yahoo. So today there was a time when I thought about it and went to the desktop and searched. See, all weekend Frank was at the desktop when I thought about it, so I’d not searched there.

I opened Yahoo.com on the desktop a little while ago and searched twice. Wasn’t happy with what I found the first time, so I added WIN XP ICS to “can’t open some web sites sharing DSL”.

I scanned the entries Yahoo gave me, and nearly shook as I read one. I clicked on it, and here is the pertinent info and the link:


6. RE: Client can’t open some web pages
lhhood423 May-18-02 10:30 AM
In response to message 5

Can’t access some websites while using a shared PPPoE connection
Intended For
Windows XP
Windows 2000
Windows Me
Windows 98

If you’re using Windows’ built-in support for Internet Connection Sharing, and your Internet connection is facilitated by PPPoE software (such as Enternet 300) or Windows XP’s built-in PPPoE, you may experience this problem. Although any web site will be accessible on the “Host” computer, certain web sites will never load successfully from any of the “client” machines. (If you don’t know what “Hosts” or “Clients” are with regard to ICS, read Internet Connection Sharing.) The problem is caused by an incompatible MTU networking setting: Windows’ default is 1500, but PPPoE uses 1492 or 1454. Here’s how to fix it:

Find the IP address of your gateway. If you’re using Windows 2000 or XP, run IPCONFIG at a command prompt on the Host computer. If you’re using Windows 98 or Me, run WINIPCFG on the Host computer. Either way, you’ll get an address that looks like xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where the x’s represent numbers).
Then, go to one of your Client machines, and type the following:
PING -f -l 1500 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the gateway address you obtained in the first step). You’ll probably get an error message indicating that it must be fragmented. If you do, type the following:
PING -f -l 1492 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
If that doesn’t work, try this:
PING -f -l 1454 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
The numbers in each of these examples (1500, 1492, 1454) are the MTU values. Continue issuing this command with lower and lower MTU numbers until you get ping responses instead of an error message. The highest MTU value that works is the one you need to be using. If an MTU of 1500 (the first command, above) does not produce an error, then this solution won’t work for you.
The next step is to configure all your Client computers to use the new, lower MTU as the default for all Internet communication.
Windows 2000 and XP:

Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE) on one of your “Client” machines.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Services\ Tcpip\ Parameters\ Interfaces.
There should be several subkeys under the Interfaces key; most likely, you’ll find three. View the contents of each key by clicking, and find the one that corresponds to your primary network adapter; it will be the one with more values than the other two, and will have an IP address value set to something like 192.168.0.x.
Once you’ve found the correct subkey, create a new DWORD value in it (Edit -> New -> DWORD Value), and name the value MTU.
Double-click the new value, choose the Decimal option, and type the MTU value determined above.
Click Ok when you’re done – you’ll need to restart Windows for this change take effect.
Repeat this for each Client machine.
Windows 98/Me:

Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE) on one of your “Client” machines.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ System\ CurrentControlSet\ Services\ Class\ Nettrans\.
Under that branch, find a key (numbered, such as 0005) that contains has TCP/IP assigned to the DriverDesc value.
Select New from the Edit menu, then String Value, and type MaxMTU for the name of the new value.
Double-click the new value, choose the Decimal option, and type the MTU value determined above(mine is 1454).
Click Ok when you’re done – you’ll need to restart Windows for this change take effect.
Repeat this for each Client machine.


This worked. I already had guessed that PPPoE was the problem, but hadn’t found exactly WHY. I’d read something about MTU’s before, but never saw a nice neat “HERE’S How to SOLVE your PROBLEM” post anywhere.

It was straightforward and oh so wonderful! Nearly as nice as that regedit thing that gets rid of “shortcut arrows” on icons and shortcuts. Ah, they are both just as nice. Now I can go to Spiderman.sonypictures, weather.com, triviumpursuit, …. and on down the line. All black listed sites are back!

Just for fun

Here’s what my desktop looks like today.

Win XP 1280x1024resolution. Taskbar auto-hide [that is why you might see a tiny blue line at the bottom of the picture if you look close enough]

Who’s the picture of? Any guesses?

Faster internet at the Meints household

The time has come when we finally have faster internet service.

We were driving in another part of the county over a week ago, when I spied a little sign low, near the ground, on the side of road. It announced DSL service, via our local phone company, being now available. Well, we’ve been told before that it’d not be coming to where we live. A few weeks before this, someone at our church, who lives near us, said he has DSL. Well since then I’d been after Frank to call the phone company and inquire. So, now that we saw the sign on the road-side, a phone call was directly made. Frank left a message to be called back.

We found out then that indeed DSL was available at our house. Hmmm. We had no way of knowing. We’d bugged the company in the past to find out stuff like this, but were told nothing was going to happen. Really. So it was the fluke of chatting with the person at church, and driving that way that day the other week, which led us to finding out that we can now get it afterall.

So, on Monday “Brown” drove up and dropped off a box. Our DSL modem. It’s been sitting waiting patiently for DSL to be active on the phone line. We were told a few different things about turn on dates, and finally it was settled that Friday, today, was the day, but it wouldn’t be until after 5pm “probably” since they were so busy with new accounts. So, Frank was on the phone, working out of the house — so this was a “business” call, and someone broke in and said “Mr. Meints?” and it ended up being our phone company, the service guy turning on DSL, he was waiting for the phone line to be dormant, and so he ended up breaking-through Frank’s phone call finally πŸ™‚ So, nearly needless to say, Frank was fine to hang up for 10 minutes if it meant DSL was being turned on.

So then the fun of installation began. I’d run the program a few times in the past week, just to do it. So today, of course, with DSL right there, it wouldn’t install. Ugh. Finally it did. Then the fun began. Fast blazing internet on the desktop. Nothing on my laptop. Dead in the water on my laptop. I configured things right and left and up and down. So I’m then on the desktop reading HTML pages for help, and I heard the soft — da, dah — music of my laptop recieving email. Hmmm … yup, it’s working now. Made nearly no sense, but that’s how it is when you are networking with just two computers and ethernet cable, and new funky DSL modem installations.

For y’all still on dialup, I have pity for you. That was me just yesterday, even earlier this morning. It’s painful, but endurable. DSL is pure fun! Pages load fast. Pictures fast. Download 80mgs? No problemo. Snap your fingers, yawn a bit, get a cup of coffee, it’s nearly done, go outside and look at the trees blooming in the early Spring, come back in, and it’s done!

I’ve downloaded movie trailers today, that I could only dream about before.

Well, we are “always on” now. For real. Not just, on dialup for way too long, and tying up the phone line. I can now set my email to “check” for mail by itself. It’s a dream, but will be just “normal stuff” by tomorrow. Sorry to y’all dialup folk. I was one of you just awhile ago, knowing I was stuck as one. Turned out not to be so. Isn’t life funny?!!

Pink, pink, pink!

Light pink blossoms are opening up on the Yoshino Cherry trees out front. If all goes well, there will be clouds of white/pink from a short to far distance when viewing them. The trees are bursting with blossoms on nearly every inch of their branches. It’ll be raining, supposedly, often the next five days. I’m wanting to take some photographs of the trees with brilliant blue sky behind them … in full bloom, of course. We shall see if that will be possible!

Egg Report 2003

See the Egg Report at the Henny-penny Egg Report …

http://www.pastoralfarms.com/eggreport/

I’ve edited this post to refect the change, as I’m now [April 2003] using MT instead of Blogger Pro, as before I was using document.write method to include the egg report in this web log. Our Henny-pennies have their own page now, so please be sure and read here and there from now on!

Nest box built

On Saturday Frank and I got the nest boxes built. We still have to mount the thing on the side of the pen, we’ll be hanging it on the side so that the roof of the pen is roof of the nest box, and so then the egg collection will be easy. As well, the ladies won’t be able to roost on the top of the next box walls.

Saturday night I went out to check on the hens, and half of them were on their normal roost, and the other half were atop the walls of the box. I shooed them off, and they were on the normal roost the next time I checked. πŸ™‚

Last night, I didn’t check close-up, but from the kitchen window it LOOKED like all the girls were on the roosting rail.

In the daytime they’ve been sitting on the front edge of the box on occasion, and I let them be, as I want them to get used to sitting in the box and being comfortable there for egg laying. Egg laying ain’t at night, so I want them on the roosting rail, where they’ve always been the happiest at night. It’s still a temporary rail, we’ll get something better rigged up for permanent use.

The nest box is divided into two parts. It was so nice to get the first egg in the nesting box. It was CLEAN! One egg after that was layed on the ground, next to the box, but on hay. They are getting the picture, the ladies that is.

We have our first egg!

We have storms moving through, last night and this morning there was lots of rain, and now it’s quiet, but rain still threatens. This was our first real thunderstorm of the year … tons of lightening throughout the night. It’s balmy now, in the mid 60’s, and very humid.

So, I sloshed through the yard to the hen-pen, and re-arranged things, giving them fresh grass without moving the pen, as I can’t move it. Every OTHER blade of grass was under mud, it’s been very wet lately. The hen-pen should have been moved the other day, but it didn’t get done. So it was nice to see the hens attacking the fresh grass I unearthed by moving the box that holds the beam that is their roosting place. I moved that whole thing back further, closer to the “wall” that is solidly covered.

When, doing the above job, I moved the firewood pile at the other end of the roost, I found … a perfect little egg! It’s beautiful, pale brown and I’d classify it as a small egg, grocery-store-speak.

So this leads to my confession: The nesting boxes haven’t been built yet. It’s just been kind of hard to get that done, when Frank has the supplies in the van, and the van isn’t around the house all day long, with Frank at work. πŸ˜‰

So, with the find I had today, Frank has promised to get the boxes banged out tonight. We have hay from our goat man, so the ladies will have happy laying space soon! [now that #1 has actually produced an egg!]

Happy March 2003! Various subjects

It’s been dreary raining here for the last few days, and for us, whether or not this “Northern” phrase applies — March is coming in like a lamb … it’s just blah rain, like drizzle. There was lots of blowiness to the weather over a week ago, now that was very much the proverbial LION weather of March. But it was during February. It’ll be interesting to see what the end of March is like. Hopefully the sufficient rain of the past several months will bring nice wildflowers in the State road medians. They are beautiful, but rather not as nice the last few years. Oh, and then the thing that gets me every year is “just when the flowers are finally getting nicer, the county mows them over”. Ugh. They are “Wildflowere project” areas, just mowed over. Many flowers have to re-seed by going the full length of their growing cycle to the seed stage. Well, we won’t be seeing some of them ever again πŸ˜‰ Too bad. Well, I had wildflowers planted in the front of our house last year, from a can of seed. Some of them were so gorgeous, it’ll be interesting to see how they turn out again, whatever is perennial or annual and seeded fine. I let them “do their thing”.

What will March be like for us in the South? Forecasting a 29 degree low on Monday night, that’s according to weather.com. We’ve been threatened with similar and worse scenarios for the last few weeks, and never did they turn out. We’ve been above freezing for a long while, in the terms of late winter speech.

Well, with that all in mind, the official NORMAL last freeze is March 15, which is a signal for other areas under Winter’s spell. Just two weeks away from that date, that bright spot on the map that tells Southerners to start geering up for real gardening, and that must put some hope in the Northern gardeners — Winter will end. It’s much more of a hope than any old groundhog can supply. πŸ™‚

The girls [the hens] are doing fine, just eating as usual. No eggs yet. And day now. Some of their sisters, owned by someone else, have just started laying. Other sister are not yet laying, so we have a slight hope of soon laying, but totally in the normal range still.

We bought Joel Salatins “Pastured Poultry Profits”. Frank picked it up from the book store today. It’s not in the store normally, they had to special order it. Yup that’s what you have to do with the really good books!

Anyway, I flipped to the last part in the book, the part about laying hens, and could barely put it down. It’s got me raring to go and get the pen situated even better, and to thinking about finding someone with some land that’ll let us put some broilers on it. Well it’d be a chore to have land else where, but that’s what one has to do to get farming started, where they are now, not waiting for “the right property to come into our possesion”. That’s the same kind fallacial arguement used by married couples without children: “we’re waiting to start our family until we are financially ready/comfortable” … etc. You have to go for it. If you really want it, go for it. The “right moment” is now.

An update on the children’s progress

Asa is really growing! His face has filled out considerably of late, he’s looking more “boy” than baby, actually baby is nearly gone. He’s 2 years, 5 months old.

He can answer the first three children’s catechism questions:

1. God

2. All things

3. For His own glory

Those are the answers. Mix the questions up and he still 98% of the time gets them right.

Currently, as I type this, he’s playing “Reader Rabbit Toddler” on the other computer. He’s in Bubble Castle, letting all those animals out of the bubbles, and then when the right amount are release he gets a song played. He’s singing right along with them, and in particular doing quite a good job with the Alphabet song.

We sing songs in the van or just anywhere in the house, and he’s really picking them up all of a sudden. He used to watch the other two on the computer on occassion, but not do well without help, now he doesn’t need help. He’s got many mouse-moves down.

Now, it’s Victoria’s turn: She’s 4 years, 3 months old.

She’s a young lady. She is learning her letters. She can name most of them. She can spell out signs when we are out, for instance. That’s one utilization of our surroundings I use to show them learning abilities.

She loves to write on paper. She copies things I write, or things out of books. She’s memorized her name, how to write it, and sometimes she doesn’t get it totally correct, but it’s close. Usually it’s just one-letter-wrong. Something flip-flopped or left out.

She “reads” “This little Piggy Went to Market”. Russell read it to her one day,and she memorized it instantly and follows the words on the page of the book, as if she’s reading. She’s mimicing Russell and everyone else who actually reads.

She’s raring to go! It won’t be long now.

She can click with the mouse with the best of them, very “professional” πŸ™‚ She play Toddler and Pre-School versions of Reader Rabbit, and they are just fun, not a real challenge. We have BUZZY the Knowledge Bug CD’s too, and the JUNGLE one Russell has been playing, and now Victoria is playing it too. They both are constantly chattering about this and that thing in this or that jungle, etc. when they play with that CD. It’s full of great activities, and it’s neat to see Victoria starting to do things that Russell is already doing on the computer.

Russell is reading everything. He can read outl oud very well, but usually doesn’t do a good job, his attitude needs work. He’s very intelligent, and of course, rather bossy, being the eldest. He’s losing his front top teeth slowly, they are looser now, but still there. He lost two bottom ones, but is still frightened about losing the top ones. He’ll be a typical 6-7 year old soon, with that big gap. Just not so typical in other ways …! Russell will be 7 the end of April.

He’s a very sweet boy, energetic, and very much more full of energy than that!

I’m going to get Russell to type some information for his web page soon. And that will introduce him to web design and HTML coding eventually. We’ll start with a list of books he’s read/reading.

Forecast via the big “V” In the Sky

I haven’t been out and about a lot lately, so I’m not saying this is the first sighting, just MY first sighting:

Two separate V-formations of geese heading NORTH! Yesterday, Monday, February 24 right before sunset.

That’s a good sign of Spring.

The sightings were in Gwinnett County, GA, which is just NE of Atlanta.

Another change in things, of note, is that American Goldfinches are coming to the feeders in larger numbers now. The males are beginning to turn more yellow, which just means they are “beginning” to think about breeding season. The Eastern Bluebirds are thinking heavily about breeding season, guarding their box in our backyard, fluttering their wings a lot, darting at other birds — particularly European Starlings and House Sparrows — chasing them away. They are singing in the AM too, very loudly most days. What a lovely sound the Bluebirds voice is. Very much a Spring, and Summer staple in the South.

Warmer temperatures, and laying, right around the corner

The weather [weather.com] is forecasting warmer temperatures for the next few nights than they were last week. That means that we won’t be below freezing at all, if it turns out that way. That’s good news for hens and plants.

The Weeping Willow tree is putting out it’s greenery, and a few other trees are also starting to leaf out, minimal at the moment, the W.Willow is the furthest along. The flowering trees are close to doing their Spring Thing.

I was outside for awhile late this morning. I did some more with the hen-pen, it’s getting close to being done. The openable top is not functional yet, we need some hinges and to figure out a light frame to use for the lid. Then the boxes for laying still need constructed. And a more permanent roosting rail. Right now we have a 2×4 hiked up on a plastic box on one end, and a pile of fire wood on the other end. It’s functional for now. Just needs re-arranged when we move the pen each time.

photo of hen-pen

I’ll rig up a watering dish to hang on the side of the pen, and a feed dish eventually that does something similar. The thing about it is, all you need to get started is something with sides and a top, and open to fresh grass on the bottom, and dishes for water and feed, and something for the hens to roost on, and if they are laying, or when they start laying, you’ll need a dark box for them to do their thing in. We’ve read different things for sizing the box to so many hens, and we’ll start out with two of a certain size and see what happens. Our hens are 20 to 21 weeks old now. White Leghorns, so they are due any time. With warmer temperatures now, that’ll help them get going. We keep the backyard light on from sundown to when we go to bed, to give them more light. One thing we read says they need 14 hours of light a day for good laying to happen. So, if that’s so, a porch light on, or a light near them, is not a problem.

I’m pleased to announce …

I am now hosting Howard King’s “A Christian Agrarian Critique of Technological Society”. It’s a fantastic look at modern society through the Christian Agrarian lense, which is a Biblical look at the whole enchilada.

Click here for “A Christian Agrarian Critique of Technological Society”.

It’s worth reading. If you are interested in agrarian things or not. I challenge you to read it with an open heart. It’s not meant to turn everyone into farmers, but to see the world around you in a different light. What’s good right now, may not seem as good at another point in your life. Why? We change inside. We should be transforming inside, to what God wants us to be. This series of articles is one that can shed much light on something that was dull and hard to see. It may transform something into a totally different thing. It may be validation for what you were thinking already. It may be so new and horrible that you can’t stand it. Read it anyway, and let me know what you are thinking.

Pussy Willows ready to burst forth!

I’ve been watching the Pussy Willow bush the last couple of weeks, and finally today, it’s ready. Several small covers have split and are showing the velvety gray beneath … it won’t be long now before the whole bush is a lovely wash of gray velvet! Spring is building, the great cachophony isn’t here yet, but the timberels are starting their song. They are important. Oh glorious Spring!

There’s nothing like Spring in the South. While the North lies dormant and cold, the South Springs into vibrant color. To the South of the South, Winter isn’t an issue, so the beauty of the idea of being born, maturing, growing old, and dying is lost. I like the picture that The South in the United States brings … a very long growing seasons, the life of a [true] Christian should be as that.

Here’s a nice picture with added graphics

This was taken, as stated on the picture, somewhere around April 2002. Strider and Dixie are brother and sister, adopted in December 2001 when they were about 7 months old. Strider is the only male cat in the house, and definitely the King. He’s my big old lover too. A big ol’ hunk o’ cat.

Dixie is actually “Dixie Blossom” and she’s nice, but rarely purrs. She’s happy, just purrs rarely. That’s weird to me. I’m used to cats purring whenever I touch them. She loves to chase the broom when I’m sweeping, so she’s my kitchen mate. She hangs around waiting for me to sweep oft times.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I created a desktop for Frank, and have it on my computer for the “holiday” too. I decided to share it with whomever else would like it as well.

Here it is:

Pick the one right for your monitor resolution:

800 x 600 56kb

1024 x 768 82kb

1280 x 1024 101kb

1600 x 1200 184kb

Right-click and “save target as …”

or if you plain old click, you can right-click on the image that loads and “save picture as …”

In any case, save the .gif file on your computer, where you can find it when browsing. Right click your desktop and choose “Properties”. On the Display Properties box find the “desktop” tab and click “browse” to find the picture you just downloaded, choose it. You can then choose APPLY or OK. Apply will save the changes and leave the screen open so that you can make other changes. OK will save the changes and close that screen.

You can change the desktop color to match the picture, if your settings have a color under the icon labels. When you have the above screen open, go to the “Appearance” tab and find the place to change colors and fonts for different window settings. Input these color values, if you know how to do it:
[WIN XP choose the “advanced” button, I seem to recall older Win systems have the info on the “appearance” tab, or on another named tab, something findable for sure]
R G B
247 88 88

If you have THEMES on your computer, you can save these settings, the desktop color and the desktop picture, as a THEME, go to the THEMES area for your system and save the current settings with a name. For instance I call this one on my computers: Valentinesday

So in the future, I can use this theme again easily, just going to THEMES and choosing it. I can make other color choices as well, to correspond with my THEME, if I want. It’s all there in the Display Properties box.

One fun thing to change to go with themes is the screen saver. It doesn’t change with a theme, you must manually change it. Go to the Screen Saver tab on Display Properties and utilize something called 3-D Text if your system has it. Choose “settings” and then enter a short phrase or name, something with meaning, and then choose the properties to display it, the font, the size, then how it moves, and then how it looks via colors or choosing a bitmap picture to base what the graphical words will look like.

I like “reflections”. Here’s a small [59kb]bitmap version of the Valentines Day desktop, that you can use as either a “texture” or “reflection” with 3-D Text screen saver. Save it the same way as above.

I like to save my special pictures such as these in MY Pictures in a folder I create called “Desktops”. It’s easy to find the files then, and keep them organized.

Let me know your comments about this! If the 1600 x 1200 resolution .gif isn’t clear, let me know and I’ll do a new one for you. I didn’t test that one. I use 1280 x 1024 personally. I can make a better one for the largest version if it’s requested! πŸ™‚

A big boy

News I forgot to put down is: Asa is potty-learned! He’s been there for over a week now, and is just now a month shy of being 2 1/2 years old. Way to go Asa! Now there are no more diapers to be changed. I’ll put them away until they are needed, hopefully, again.
