    I love search engines. :€

    Search engines never think like we do. They are set up to make money. That is their goal. Finding what you need is secondary to them. That being said I use DDG myself, as for the pin I used a hitch pin on mine when the old one wore out.

    Cats are the best answer. My two are well fed. They rarely eat what they kill. It seems they kill for the pleasure of it. They are very sadistic when they catch something usually letting it run between them as they take turns torturing it to death. No rodent problems since they came here.
