Now that I'm a home owner and no longer live in an apartment or condo, I've discovered something called yard work. I've also discovered that many plants in Arizona have some really sharp thorns. But my prize possession isn't work gloves to protect my hands--it's a propane weed burner. The thing's incredible. It just fries every weed in minutes without poisons or herbicide and without hurting my bad shoulder. I just love this thing.
