Checking Systems in the Field
Here is what was found so far:
- New inverter's electricity outlets are not accessible when Scampy's bed is setup.
- After switching from AT&T to Cricket and buying a Mobile Hotspot, the hotspot does not work.
- USB cable for charging portable batteries and the Coleman lantern, not onboard Scampy.
- Cricket data usage not available by phoning 611 as it was when we had AT&T service.
2pm - Calling a plumber!
Tomorrow, I'm going to find a plumber to do this propane line job.
What stopped me, was the existing brass/copper propane lines. In order to install a Tee into that line, more access to the line is necessary. That would require removing a compression fitting on an existing Tee.
When I attempted to remove that compression fitting, it seemed to me that the fitting was secured with loctite or some other thread locker. I didn't know how to proceed after that.
That's the reason for me seeking a plumber to finish the job.
5pm - Baby Boid is a bright boid
He is also a very independent boid. I know these things are true about him, because I've had the pleasure of sharing my home with many budgies since I had 13 years.
Today I started using food as an incentive for him to become "hand trained." I am NOT withholding Boid's food. Just encouraging him to transition to the next stage in his relationship with me.
In the pic below, is Boid resisting coming to me for seeds. Instead of eating seeds from my hand, he searches for seeds on the floor.

6pm - Boid eating from me
It took only about one for Boid to figure out that it was a good idea for him to eat his seeds while being close to me.
Baby Boid is a smart boid!
