Re: (ET) (no subject)

Hear Hear !   This lawn mowing info needs to get more public.  

  Incidentally,  speaking of  pollution we ain't putting out,  why don't
all you guys hit the NEEAA (New England chapter, Electric Automobile
Assn) website and download the 'Fuel Saver's Guide'.   ET's are mentioned
in it.   This is a 40 page public domain Ebook which will print out
properly on Win 98 computers with MS Office 7 but will need the front
page reformatted to paginate the whole thing properly with Win XP
computers.  Some day someone will do it up in PDF so everyone can print
it on anything, even an Apple, with Acrobat.   Get it at  WWW. NEEAA.ORG 
    FSG has a dual purpose;  To save a person money and to save the
planet's resources, IE underground petroleum and our atmosphere vis a vis
greenhouse gases.
At the local  Earth day show, bout 50 CD copies were given out at the
NEEAA display to people who had computers but no internet.  
Incidentally, FSG has a  'fuel saving tip' in it on lawnmowing - to do it
less often, let the grass grow higher between mows.  Us ET people don't
have to worry about that. :>)
