I Knew it Had to Happen!

When they came out with battery powered push mowers, I knew the battery powered rider mower would be next. I even predicted it in one of my posts.

When I visited Lowes this afternoon, I noticed two zero turn machines that had electric mower trademarks on them.

I made a point to check them out on the way in. They had a sign on it that bragged 2 acres on a charge. I actually do have a decent sized yard, but it doesn’t get close to a 1/4 of an acre. Sadly, my yard just doesn’t justify the price tag.

Even so, considering my age, I was still tempted. Maybe I could use it to make money. I could advertise a green friendly way to keep your lawn well manicured. I wonder just how many lawns it would take to justify spending $5500.

Maybe one or two of my readers can figure a way to pretend I need a zero turn rider mower.

Maybe they will come out with a little lawn tractor mower soon. Maybe they will come out with one I can afford. In the meantime, I guess I will trudge behind the one I have. At least it’s electric. That will make those “going green” nuts happy.

Oh. And by the way. I won’t have to pay road tax to cut my grass.

Burning Fuel

John Kerry flies private jet aircraft, a lot. I did a little checking around. His plane burns likely 6 to 7 gallons of fuel per minute, about what I burn in a week.

I think before he has the right to tell me anything about saving fuel, he needs to start flying commercial.

If he wants to go around boring holes in the sky at speeds approaching the speed of sound, i have no problems with it. However, if he wants to be the spokesman of global warming, he really should stop contributing so much to warming the globe.
