Nooooo...thats the weak link in the system. There is only ONE place I have found in our 4 town area that offers this - in Norwalk - and getting the motivation to bring it there has been the challenge. After year 3, the blades dulled and my mowing has suffered as such (leaves a thin random unmowed streak that requires going over the lawn twice!)
Its fun though. Basically silent - can mow the lawn at 530 AM except too much dew then.
Not good for big lawns or lots of hills
Good for excercise
Leaves edges and bigger weeds untouched - making the lawn ragged on the edges unless you then follow up with a weed whacker, which I dont. More significantly, it favors some weeds over others, changing the weed composition of my lawn. This is not a minor issue, I now have lots more plantain.
Never get a gas mower again if I can help it
Sounds like good and bad points.

When we first moved out of the city to the burbs in 2000 I bought an electric (corded) mower. Big pain in the butt with cord and all. It broke right away and returned it to Home Depot and then went to Honda store where i got a nice little HOnday mower (and snow blower) which were both great.

Still have the snow blower but broke the mower - my fault - hit a pipe - the water shut off pipe - dumb dumb.

I used to be maintenance nut and brought both machines yearly for oil change/sharpening etc. It's been years now since i did any of it.

Hundreds of families on the south shore of Staten Island, one of the areas hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy, have received more than enough donations of most kinds of clothing but are in desperate need of underwear, the borough president said Tuesday.

"What we do need right now ... is underwear. Undergarments for children and adults," Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro told "Good Day New York," a local TV program on Fox. "That's what we need. That's what we're in desperate need of."

"It's like a third world nation," he said of the destruction on the island's south shore.

Donation centers have had to stop taking shirts and pants because of a deluge of those items, Molinaro added. "I have a warehouse full of clothing," he said.

----------

Molinaro added that many families are refusing to leave their damaged homes due to fears of looting, even with the danger of a nor'easter on the horizon.

and the grounding basis for all this mess in our state??? the "wash narcotic money in real estate" rackets.
mainly generally run by latino ashakenazi's wannabe's, some say latino ashakenazi are sephardic right?? well they got white names and are classifed as white therefore they are white, and they get to perpetrate poison,plague and treachery in our nation, i guarantee you guys won't be worrying about the messianic jews in israel, you'll be worrying about foreign organized drug front sephardic ashakenazi negro and asian and mayan aztec with a firearm trying to get std meds for his family, do you think he going to watch his kids die?? and do nothing???you guys know full well drugs cause the behavior that spreads the std, so even if we had a cure the "behavior" would increase the spread due to the fact people would be less likely to wear protection.-- which is whats happening now and china really "shanghi'ed" the planet with the meds--they got the patent on hiv meds and looks like they are now pulling alot of strings, i personally like the chinese they make the right decision and accept american standards and values.

Lecture 6 The Practical Aspects of His Life and its Practicality Part-37

Mercy to Whole Creations:

He was a mercy to the whole creation. It grieved him to see people suffering. It was extremely painful for him to see people rejecting the Truth and insisting stubbornly on living in sin. He only wished their well-being. It is his ardent love and sympathy for mankind that forces him to preach and call them to the service of one God and live a God-conscious life.

He is extremely kind to those who accept his call. This verse is a proof that Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was a well-wisher of mankind in general, and loving and kind to the believers in particular. That is the heavenly evidence in favour of his noble conduct.

The holy Quran is the heavenly Book. It is the word of God, revealed to His last Prophet, for the guidance of mankind. It contains the commandments of Allah and His instructions for the benefit of all mankind. Indeed, the holy Prophet’s life is the holy Quran in practice. Whatever instructions and commandments of Allah were sent down, being His Messenger he was the first to obey. He practised them while he preached them.

Actions speaks louder than words:

Declaration of Faith in the Oneness of God, Salat (five time obligatory prayer), Fasting, Hajj, Zakat, spending on the needy and destitute, fighting in the path of Allah, self-sacrifice, steadfastness, fortitude, patience, thanks-giving and other principles of good moral behavior that he taught, he first demonstrated through personal example.

His life became an embodiment of what had been revealed for human guidance in the holy Quran. It is related that when some of his companions asked his wife Ayesha (May Allah be pleased with them all) about the holy Prophet’s practice and his character, she asked them whether they had not read the Quran. His life was a complete reflection of the Quran.

The holy Quran is words while the holy Prophet’s life is its interpretation in practice. No one can ever know a man’s morals, his habits and behaviour better than his wife. When Prophet Muhammad proclaimed to be Allah’s Prophet, he had been married to Khadija (May Allah be pleased with her) for fifteen years.

This is long enough for one to know each other’s nature, temperament and behaviour fully well. This knowledge had certainly left its mark on Khadija s heart. The moment he told her about his Prophethood, she wholeheartedly believed him and supported him. When the Prophet expressed his worry and distress because of the immense burden of his mission, she reassured him saying:

“O Prophet of Allah, Allah will never abandon you because you always treat your kin fairly and kindly, you help people to pay their debts, you help the poor, you are hospitable to your guests, you always support what is right, and help the people in distress.”(Al-Bukhari)

Thank all the Gods the election in now over.

Seaside you are welcome back - we can still be friends!

Two interesting results:

1. Exit polls showed the Obama got statistically the same proportion of Jews (around 70-75%) as 2004.

2. In CT - Linda McMahon, of World Wrestling Federation Fame, lost her senate bid despite spending 50 Million of her OWN money (and also spending 50 Million of her own money a few years ago as well in same bid). Just goes to show that CT we are more sophisticated than to let someone buy a seat.

During a campaign event in New Hampshire, Barack Obama
told an audience of his supporters,“you know I tell the
truth.”
Here are ten flagrant examples where Obama has not told the
truth and in fact has lied to cover up his own administration’s
failings, or as a deliberate act of deception.
1) As part of his 2008 campaign pledge, Obama promised to
close down Guantanamo Bay. The Obama administration not
only failed to close the infamous prison camp, they expanded
its use.
2) Last year (after campaigning to protect Habeas Corpus
before he was elected), Obama promised not to sign the
National Defense Authorization Act, with its provisions for
the indefinite detention of American citizens, yet put his
signature on the bill in the dead of night on New Year’s Eve.
Indeed, it was the Obama administration itself which argued
for the removal of language that would have protected
Americans from the provisions and then had them re-
instituted after a court had struck them down.
3) Obama has lied time and time again about Operation Fast
and Furious, the program which saw guns delivered directly
into the hands of Mexican drug lords. Obama told a national
television station that the program had begun under
Bush when in fact it began under Obama’s watch in October
4) Emails sent shortly after the incident as well as a CBS 60
Minutes interview from September 12 prove that the White
House knew the assault on the US Consulate in Benghazi was
a pre-meditated terrorist attack yet the administration spent
over a week claiming the incident was a protest against a You
Tube video.
5) As part of his campaign pitch, Obama promised to “not use
signing statements as a way of doing an end run around
Congress.” Obama has issued no less than 19 signing
statements since he took office.

6) In 2010, Obama said “we’ve excluded lobbyists from policy-
making jobs or seats on federal boards and commissions.” Not
only have dozens of lobbyists had regular access to the White
House, but Obama has hired over a dozen lobbyists , breaking
a campaign promise to ensure that lobbyists “won’t find a job
in my White House.”
7) As part of his efforts to bypass congressional authorization
for the war on Libya, Obama gave a speech in which he
promised there would be “no boots on the ground” in Libya.
This promise was broken when four uniformed military
personnel were sent into Libya, in addition to widespread
reports that US Special Forces had arrived in Libya months
before the overthrow of Gaddafi.
8) Under Obamacare, Obama claimed that there would be no
state-funded abortions. It later emerged that federally funded
abortions would be expanded under Obamacare.
9) In 2008, Obama promised “no more illegal wiretapping of
American citizens.” Just months after he took office, Obama
expanded Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program. The
invasiveness of illegal wiretapping is worse under
Obama than it was under Bush.
10) Before the passage of Obamacare, Obama claimed that the
bill was “absolutely not a tax increase” on all Americans.
When the Supreme Court rubber-stamped Obamacare, they
were only able to do so by classifying the new mandate as a
tax, otherwise it would have been unconstitutional.
Tell the truth? Obama doesn’t know the meaning of the word.
