|BULBS STILL BLOOMING IN THE GARDEN|
|CURBS OUT ON 6TH ST.|
|NEW SWEDISH BABY|
The road construction through town is proceeding nicely, and the old curbing along 6th street is all removed and ready to be replaced.
I recently gained access to a great amount of firewood, dried slash, small logs etc. from logging on the Johnson property where I deer hunt. My old chain saw is a relic, without a modern safety chain brake, and I no longer use it, so I went to Axel's in Ashland yesterday and bought a new 16" Stihl saw, made in Sweden and just the right size and feel for what I want to do. But, when reading the operating manual there was a warning about chain saw spark plugs interfering with pacemakers. I have gotten so used to my pacemaker that I never gave it a thought.
I looked the subject up on the internet and the information was rather inconclusive, so I called the manufacturer, Boston Scientific, and was told that there should be no problem as long as the chain saw is kept at least 12" from the implanted device. So I am good to go, as I don't think I'll be carrying a running chain saw around in my arms, like a baby.
