Relaxing With A Nice Chainsaw

Last weekend was pretty busy what with all the shopping, work, dog visiting the vet for a booster shot, cleaning, etc. Now, the question was "How should I relax?" Late on the Sunday evening I found the answer. With a chainsaw.

You see, I had a couple of dying pine trees in the backyard. Time for them to go. And the axe wasn't doing it for me. Not with my office monkey hands anyway. Too many blisters. And the pine trees were quite hard wood too. So, I bought myself an electric chainsaw. Took a few minutes to assemble and then we were ready for business.

Talk about a hot knife cutting through butter. So easy. And so relaxing. I understand why farmers are such cool, calm and collected types. They all own chainsaws. So there I was, late on a Sunday evening, ripping into two trees. Firstly cutting them down and then cutting them up. Strange language is English at times. In no time at all they were all cut to bits and the backyard looks heaps better. And I'm a much more relaxed and contented human being.

Tired? Stressed? You'll feel better with a chainsaw in your hands.

Beware of Scam Amazon Emails

Don't fall victim to scam emails. I haven't bought anything from Amazon for years. Then, out of the blue, an email arrives, in my junk mail as I've set the account to exclusive, i.e. only receive emails from contacts in my list, telling me that I've cancelled an order. Seeing as Hotmail allows you to view unsafe emails in a relatively safe manner I decided to check it out. Both of the hyperlinks in the email lead to - surely that would be enough of a wake up call if you were going to be redirected there. I certainly won't be checking it out any further as the results could be disastrous. Be careful online and with emails people.
