when did you do all this?  a virgin queen can take quite a long time to get laying.  this subject has come up a number of times in the last couple of weeks.  try doing a search and see if you can find what you need.  i am afraid most are eating hotdogs today  smiley

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
