    • One of the old owners of our house put in a fire pit. We got our first use of it a couple weeks ago. It was great...until the fire department arrived. One of our neighbors called them because “we received a report that you were burning illegal things. We weren’t. Then they came back because they received another report that our pit was too close to a combustible structure, the shed base I built. It was. So our first fire in that pit is also our last.

      All of that said, we have a neighbor who doesn’t like fires, has a printed copy of the fire code and will call the FD until they are able to contrive a reason for the FD to force us to extinguish our little fire. We’ve since put in a request to the fire marshal for a spot in our yard to put in a new pit, per the suggestion of the firefighters who had to keep coming to our house.

      Also, our shed kit won’t arrive until “mid-November”, per the manufacturer. So that’s going to be fun for building it.

              • I’ve never had a sound system or speakers in my home. Got a Sonos Play 1 a few years ago as a work gift, and kind of ignored it.

                bought a Sonos ONE a few weeks ago then got the Sonos one pair from Costco today and they really connect together nicely. For about $650 I basically have the entire house covered and it’s really good sound.

                • I hate my lawnmower sometimes.

                  Worked today for the bulk of leaf pickup. Had to get more gas. Came back, filled it up, and won’t run when I engage the blade. Take the whole thing apart. The choke isn’t engaging and the fuel throttle keeps bouncing back and forth. Clean out the carb, air filter, springs, etc. Blade engages, runs amazing. Wheel it back to the back yard and engage the blade and it dies. Then it won’t even turn over. It keeps getting **** in the carb.

                  I hate cleaning out the carb because even if I clamp off the fuel line, gas ends up all over my hands and they reek like **** for a couple days.

                    No latex or nitrile gloves? What kind of gas are you running. E10 sucks for small engines. Can you buy non ethanol gas?

                        i should have worn gloves. I just need to get some good garage-duty nitriles.

                          Yeah. I’d consider it with a small lawn. We mulched 40+ bags of leaves this year. Not sure how an electric would stand up to that kind of punishment.

                            I’ve got a 9400sq foot lot, get about 30-40 bags of leaves each fall, and I can do the entire yard on one charge. I think they hold up fairly well too.

                            • I stand corrected.

                              I’ve always assumed they would last like an hour. We usually spend a couple afternoons doing just leaves. I used to take off a Friday in late fall, start at 10 AM and mulch until the sun went down.
