一个女性友好的家防霰弹枪的配置

响应拜登副总统的“Buy a shotgun”的号召,我家买了一支泵动霰弹枪用于家防。这儿介绍一下这个枪的配置,配置的目标是让身材比较娇小的女性也可以比较容易地使用12GA的家防弹药。要不然,这个录像上的这些状况发生在Yunyao身上就不妙了。

My First Encounter with Dirty Diaper

Today I have encountered dirty diaper for the very first time in my life and it is not pretty.  While doing routine cleaning of our guest bathroom, I was shocked to discover a stack of dirty diaper deposited in the trash can in our guest bathroom.  I am still struggling on how to get rid of the terrible smell of the trash can after dumping the diapers.

2. Payment forms (including those for both pregressive payments and final payments)

Resources to Get Rid of Lawn the Frugal Way (Phrase I)

We are getting rid of our front lawn --- to save water and money!

A landscape designer helped us did the design to convert our front yard from an old deteriorating classic English garden into a vibrant modern garden full of native plants.

Given our shoe-string budget, we plan to do most of the work ourselves. However, since both of us work full time, it will be a while before we can actually start the project, but being a person who loves to plan,  I have started collecting resources to do the project frugal way already!
