Hi all.  With the amount of rain and hot weather we are having in the northeast, my back yard looked more like a hay field than a lawn.  Just got done mowing it, and while I was doing it I reflected that in years past my rate of cutting would have caused the v belt on the lawn tractor to shread (I would have gone through a couple of them to complete an acre).  I switched to the v belts at "Tractor Supply" that use kevlar threads to strengthen the rubber.  They do not sell for much of a premium over conventional belts, but they are radically stronger.  I hope that this comment helps someone.  

Man has no special rights because he belongs to a particular race.  The soul emanates equal and eternal from bodies different in shape and color.  It is sufficient to say ‘Man’ to comprehend therein all rights.                                                    — Jose Marti 

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.         —Frank Zappa

... and when that runs ragged, just string together some kevlar tail gut? (don't even dare to add a smiley)
