I just purchased locally from craigslist a made in the usa 6 blade silent cut 18 inch push reel mower.   It is 42 lbs, about 12 pounds heavier than the previous made in china one I had; so it cuts amazing, and is smooth.  Bye bye Bermuda!

Mrs. Heinrich's birthday present: A new German Shepherd puppy. We call her Trutti(TROO tee), which is kinda short for der Truthahn. Fitting also, as it's the 30 anniversary of the fall of The Wall.

Edit: gender of noun

I just obtained from a friend, but will be buying it, an echo two stroke string trimmer.  It hasn't run in 4 years.  I have spent the last 24 hours learning how to trouble shoot the machine, and I finally got it running with some new gas and carburetor adjustment.  Oh, and probably 200+ pulls.

It occurred to me, just from the look of it, that this meant "truth", but although that might seem laudable it would be a strange name for a dog! So what is the story of her name (der Truthahn=turkey=gobbler) - is she a big eater already?
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

It is close to the US Thanksgiving.
