  2. Sorry, the above comment linked to a site about how to game search engines and scam ad sites, not very positive information. Is that better or worse than the usual fake term papers links, hard to say. Anyway, deleted.

  3. A small correction on the French:

    "Voici l'hiver! La dernière nymphe s'enfuit avec la dernière feuille..."

    (Winter's here! The last nymph is running off with the last leaf...)

  4. Thank you, I'm doing my best with translation tools.
