Air Tulio

This weekend was a very busy weekend.  This is the time of year when it is perfect to re-seed your yard.  I re-seeded my parents yard yesterday and my yard today.

Yesterday, my dad sent me to Lowe’s and Home Depot to pick up some Fescue Grass Seeds, Fertilizer, and an Aerator.  I picked up the Fescue and Fertilizer at Lowe’s then dropped them off at my parents.  I then picked up my brothers F150 and headed to Home Depot to rent the aerotor for 24 hours. 

I started on my parents house around 5pm yesterday.  The aerator worked similar to a tiller, but instead of tearing up al lthe soil it poked 2-3 inch deep holes.  Overall it took me about 2 hours.   I then re-seeded it and them fertilized it.   My arms and legs were sore since the machine weighed about 200+ lbs. So I figured I would load it up, take it home and get some rest and start in the AM at my house.

This morning the soreness was gone.  It took me a little longer to aerate my yard since it is bigger than my parents yard.  When I started on my yard I actually noticed a lever and wanted to see what it would do.  Well, that made it move 10 times faster and I was able to go over the yard twice with almost 1/2 the effort.

My next big rental is going to be a stump remover as long as I can get it into my back yard. I will have to measure the gate before I even think about renting it.

Bicycle Camper for 1

A co-worker sent this to me today and I wondered why something like this never caught on.  With today’s materials you could probably make a very light weight one with carbon fiber and titanium.  Throw is a solar powered mini flat screen TV/DVD with satellite.  There is no mention of the kid that created it, but I am guessing that his name is Chet based on the name on the side of the trailer.

Guitar Hero

Someone please explain the big deal about “Guitar Hero”  and other similar games.  It seem people spend tons of time learning to get better at the game and even compete.  With all the time they spend doing this cold they not spend it learning how to play an actual instrument?  When will the battling gaming systems find a way to have their systems actually work with real instruments.
