Had some trouble with the trigger. It requires a lot of pressure and if you let up a little on the pressure the saw stops. I had to take my gloves off and use my index and middle finger in hold the trigger tight.

Chain saw was (notice that was spelled backward is saw) easy to use. All sorts of safeties including a trigger lockout button that you have to push with your thumb to start, an anti-buck front guard and a chain brake.

Be careful with it, I used a gas chain saw for years at work. Keep the chai sharp and watch out for the cord.

Charge up the laptop and head for the basement. We had some nasty winds this morning and afternoon. Not so much now. Still raining on and off. So foggy right now that I can barely see the school in the backyard.

BE SAFE...!!!

Let me know what happens.

It was an open bar for one hour; I had a double tequila, neat. The music was very loud and then got louder. We left after 1 1/2 hours.

Not a surprise party. It was in the bar area, actually two parties. Indian food served buffet style. Very limited selection and all dishes were mild (lamp, chicken, and okra.
