    Bought a new Hooters bath/shower mat at Hooters today. Mrs. Mad Dog [aka MacGyverette] was not amused. Actually, I bought two Hooters bath/shower mats at Hooters today…always, always, always have a redundant system…and MacGyverette doesn’t know about the second one. Also, a fresh bar of Irish Spring and my 145.022-71 on a Rothco protective band are also pictured below…because I have technologies…

    Irish Spring? I just came back from a week in Ireland and I never saw that anywhere. What does it smell like, wet grass? :whistling:
    Nice watch though :thumbsup:

    I'm with MacGyverette. That is one of the most offensive things I've ever seen. ::bleh::

    I’m Irish and I’ve never seen that soap either!! I wouldn’t expect many bars of soap are sold these days!

    Not purchased exactly today, but arrived on yesterday.
    It's my EffeUno P134HA Evolution Extra Power, an amateur/semi-professional oven that exceeds the 500 Celsius degrees and it's specialized on Napoletan Pizza cooking :)

    In addition to being watch guys, my father and I also share a passion for cars. We’ve always admired the timeless design of the R129 generation of SL500s and recently decided to buy one together. It’s a 1998 model with only 35k miles. Drives incredibly well and smooth for a 25 year old car.

    Due to this medical thing I’ve been fighting I had to buy multifocal or bifocal contact lenses. I prefer glasses as contact lenses get dry throughout the day but anything on my nose at the moment creates too much pain.

    Has anyone had anyluck with these multifocal contacts? Right now they seem to impair my distance a bit. I’ve read that’s common they sacrifice a little distance to give you better up close but I’d prefer it be reversed for driving reasons. Apparently you need to give yourself a few days as the way the lenses are made you need to find the best way to look at things for the best vision.

    The ophthalmologist can also adjust the script but I’d like to know if anyone got them to the point where they actually said “yeah, these are good”

    thanks

    I have had one for about 6 years. It works well. Not surprisingly, it struggles to mulch wet tall grass. Just be sure to stop when the battery light flashes, if you don't you can kill the battery. I also have the leaf blower, string trimmer, and hedge trimmer. All work quite well, and I am happy to no longer have to deal with 2-cycle engines.

    So, cut the grass and it went well...the grass wasn’t wet, but was pretty long in a few areas and this mower didn’t show any strain at all.

    I initially forgot to start the chronograph, so it took just over an hour, and it looks like I could easily get 2 cuts per charge. That’s using the mulching blade, and using it in self propelled mode about 80% of the time.

    And yes, you can cut your lawn while wearing a Speedmaster...

    So many good things about this mower..

    No pull starting.
    No need to go buy and transport gas.
    Much more quiet than a gas powered mower..don’t really need earplugs.
    Self propelled function adapts to your walking pace...this is really good for when you hit a deep patch of grass, as you can just walk slower and it adapts automatically.
    Greatly reduces emissions...

    I still have my riding mower, but I suspect it will get used a lot less now that we have this one.

    Mine does not have the fancy control panel yours has @Archer. What size battery did you get? I have a 4 amp-hr. I agree 100% with your advantages, and unlike most gas mowers, it can easily be folded up and stored vertically against the wall.

    God I hate 2 stroke yard engines and chainsaws!

    After you use them its a mandatory clothes change and shower to get rid of the burnt oil smoke smell on you and your clothes.

    Don't really want to opt for electric yet, might delve into a long held desire for 4 stroke machines such as Honda make, perhaps if I wait long enough electric innovation might progress to that being a no brainer .... but not quite yet.
