Review: Greenworks Pro 60V 16-inch Brushless String Trimmer

He loved reviewing this trimmer after our gas one bit the biscuit.  Gerry swears that this cordless rechargeable trimmer is even more powerful than the gas one we had and it is so much easier to use as well.

It is very lightweight and easy to work with its high-low speed selector and quick easy push button start and its dual .080 twisted line.  

The trimmer comes with a 2.0 Li-lon Battery and charger and an easy to follow owner's manual.  The charge will give him approximately 40 minutes of run time on a full charge to get the full lawn completed with plenty of juice for next time since it comes with a 16-inch cutting path the lawn gets cut quickly really reducing the amount of time he spends out in the yard as well.

The Greenworks Pro 60V 16-inch Brushless String Trimmer comes with a four-year tool warranty as well as a two-year battery warranty; what can be better than that?

Gerry is definitely a fan!
Since we are still traveling and we still have snow back home, here he is trying it out while at our camp site. But come May/June, he can't wait to use it in our own yard back home.

Antelope Island State Park, #Utah

We had the full day yesterday to stay at a suggested spot for camping- Antelope Island State Park, Utah. This park is open year round, and out of a recommendation we stayed at the Bridger Bay Campground. One of the 4 on the island.

The island is the largest in the Great Salt Lake with wildlife such as pronghorn antelope, bison, mule deer and more. You cross a 7 mile long causeway before you hit the island.

The island offers trails for walking, and biking, a visitor center, ranch for tours and more. We came to see the bison and we did!

The only thing that I didn't like was there was no Wi-Fi where we were at- so no computer and blogging for me- but I was able to clean the RV, hang out some laundry, we toured the island, watched bison at our campsite for over an hour, till they moved along, and just took in the beautiful and different scenery while we were there.


Getting Four Ways You Can Optimise Your Returns When Trading Forex

When trading Forex you should always be looking at ways you can improve and get the most you can on your investments. Whether you’ve been trading for a while or you’re just starting out, there are a number of approaches you can take to help optimism your returns. Here, you can find four such examples that you may wish to use in your endeavors.

#1 Look to Wider Markets

One approach is to cast your net as far as you can – so to speak. Despite being an incredibly popular market, Forex is still relatively small compared to say the stock markets; as such there’s more out there for you to explore which could simply be going under the radar of other traders. Also, with the nature of Forex, any political or economic situations can have a bearing on even the smallest of countries and their currency. So, keeping on top of these could be beneficial.

#2 Look to Rebate Programs

There are some Forex brokers which have rebate programs. In short, these are a small refund of the initial commission or spread you pay this broker when setting up a trade with them. The smart move here is to check if your broker has such a service, as this could be an extra bit of capital you could then use for other trades.

#3 Use Top Line Services

On a general level you could look to set up a premium account with a forex trading platform or broker as you can get a wealth of additional features to help you with your investments. While you might pay more for this, the tools and features you get in return could really help you in the long run. You don’t need to look far for these either, there are plenty available such as this example from FxPro.

#4 Learn as you Go

A tried and tested method is one of the simplest and that’s to do your research. It’s fair to say that the Forex markets move fast and you need to act accordingly, but without the right knowledge behind this you’re increasing the risk involved. Take the time to learn as much as you can about a currency pair, or perhaps a specific market that interests you. By doing so, you’ll be fully versed in this area and could be able to make more informed predictions.

Whether you use one or all of these approaches, you should be setting yourself up for a more successful spell when trading. So, choose wisely and you could soon strength and boost your trading portfolio.
