I’m one of those few who still enjoys mowing his own lawn. For me, it feels good to get outside since I’m in front of a computer screen all I just feel like it’s a right of passage of owning a home. Yesterday evening was the first mow of the season.
Most of you know I’m very fond of my battery powered mower. It was always a hassle filling up a gas can and then trying to make it home without it spilling in the car. I’d usually place it inside a trash bag because I know if one drop of gasoline got in the interior the car would smell forever. Perhaps I’d feel different if I owned a truck. I also love how quiet my battery powered mower is and it never lacked in the power department; well, except now. The battery is near death and the manufacturer, Ryobi, no longer makes a replacement battery. That’s a major limitation, you are at the mercy of the manufacturer to supply batteries and hope they keep them in supply. So I bought a new battery powered mower which is 20 volts more powerful and I can’t believe how light it is, about twenty pounds lighter than a gas-powered mower. It was so light, five-year-old BoyGeeding was able to mow a couple rows/lines all by himself, under heavy supervision with me by his side, of course. I think I was able to cut my mowing time by about a third because of how light the mower was.
I see a version of this article about what will happen after the Queen’s death every now and then, but I found this part pretty interesting, it’s euthanasia.
“The King’s life is moving peacefully towards its close,” was the final notice issued by George V’s doctor, Lord Dawson, at 9.30pm on the night of 20 January 1936. Not long afterwards, Dawson injected the king with 750mg of morphine and a gram of cocaine – enough to kill him twice over – in order to ease the monarch’s suffering, and to have him expire in time for the printing presses of the Times, which rolled at midnight.
During the period I only ate very small portions of oatmeal cookies made with brown rice and up to 25 cups of coffee a day with honey and a couple of scoops of tuna fish. Sounds incredible right? At the time my body fat got down to 2.9 which is a really dangerous level. I may have looked pretty good on the outside but inside it was very dangerous thing to do.
To be honest, I thought they already did. The last four episodes of the season will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy, and The Rock. There’s no word on musical guests, but I have a feeling U2 will close the season out to jump start their tour.
