#greenworks Twin Force Dual Blade Mower: Review What do think of when you think of technology? Computers? Smart Phones? I would bet that a lawn mower does not place anywhere on that list. Why not? It is technology that makes this mower great. Without technology battery power would not be able to handle something as time and power intensive as cutting the grass. It is technology that makes this mower smart enough to switch from one battery to the other when it is expended so you can keep mowing without interruption. Like the box it comes in says, “Powered by Innovation, not by gas”. I know it sounds like I have ‘drunk the kool-aid’. I haven’t. I am speaking from experience with this mower. As with anything I purchase I research and I read a lot of reviews. I wanted an electric mower without having to use a power cord. I have a Black and Decker corded...

LifeSpan TR200 Compact Treadmill: Healthy Walking Most of you already know that I fall into the ‘Boomer’ category when it comes to my age. As each year passes by I become more aware of the things I need to do to stay active and healthy. I want to age well. Before we moved into this house we lived in a very ‘cozy’ house. There was barely enough room for the essentials much less anything else. The house we live in now gives us considerable breathing room by comparison. This house has an unfinished basement that we plan to finish into at least 3 rooms. Where is all of this going? I am a walker. However, I find that walking in less than ideal weather is not something I care to do. That means I do not get to walk on a regular basis. I also do not care to use a fitness center. I am much too inhibited. I know. I am finicky. Because our new house has this lovely large...
