I have an old corded electric one thats light as a feather to push but the cord kept getting in the way. This one is battery operated (weight about 30 lbs) and gives me quite a workout. The pull cord on a gas one was bothering my hips and shoulders. By the time I got it started I was tired. Whats your countdown now.

I used to have trouble with tan ngrass but two years ago I got en electric push button start mower that will cut through anything. Only problem the battery is heavy and it makes pushing it very difficult. After a few cuts I get used to it. I neded a new vacuum so when out for a shark. Walmart had one Dyson left for the price of the shark. I grabbed that but again its heavy but what a job it does. Ive lived here 12 years and I swear it vacuumed up fur from twelve years ago.

C-diff appears to be under control but Social Security seems a little more difficult. I have been told there is progress but it hasn't reached Social Security yet. I am still trying to have fun anyway. I'm being silly and picking on APC

When cut the grass Sunday it was like mowing a parking lot in places. Our first couple of cuts are like that. I see bits of green peeking up through the places I raked the thatch.

Sometimes I wonder if I am the only one that is worried.

Im going to work in the yard today after I goof off a bit. I have to get more of the thatch raked up and I am going to cut the grass to even it out. First cutting is awful. The ground is still hard and grass is so uneven. We had a lot of rainy weather and tomorrow more is forcast. I was off last week and took it easy. I was so burned out. Groan back tomorrow.

A collegue of mine calls it the "Zombie Invasion we are raising--stalking for brains."

Maybe you might understand this. In Experimental Theatrical Teaching, we use a term called Extraction. We extract the individual by letting them pretend to be someone else. They learn faster and more quickly by using Krashen's give-them-what-they-like. Example they are far likely to write a less inhibited conversation while pretending to be a Vampire, than an average person out in the street. The product is called an Extrusion. Student cum Vampire. Their creativity is measured via the IELTS rubric and their phraseology and creativity appears significantly better. A friend compared it to the stereotype of schizophrenia-create personalities that help them cope, help them learn. I think it is just letting a student pretend and learn more efficiently. It works, for whatever reasons. Have you heard or read any theories of what is happening to American students because of this cut-the-child-to-fit-the-suit log jam?

The outcome makes me wonder what are they raising these students to be. What kind of people will they be. Push button people like the Jetson's?

I am not sure how to describe this but there are battalions of teachers, would be teachers, and flat out imposters teaching GRE material, not quite ACT's, SAT's, and the IELTS teachings are an abomination. Teachers promise and it does not matter if they do not deliver. For every legitimate school there are hundreds of sham and cram schools.
