Season's Greetings

Season's Greetings!  I share my gift of yard safety awareness to the world. Think before you cut. It hurts. Pass it along!

Winter Yard Safety

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) has designated the FIRST DAY OF EACH SEASON as Yard Safety Awareness Day (tm). I recognize that the grass grows and the snow falls year-round all around the world. There is always a grass cut and snow removal season somewhere in the world.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) has designated December 21st or 22nd (First Day of Winter) of each year as Yard Safety Awareness Winter Day (tm). I want to promote yard safety awareness all over the world. Whether it is snowing or grass growing, the first day of Winter calls for another opportunity to refresh and develop a commitment to yard safety. Give the gift of Yard Safety Awareness for the Holiday Season.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) shares some snow removal tips while using Snow Throwers below:

Read the snow thrower equipment owner's manual thoroughly and understand all recommended operating and safety procedures before turning on the snow thrower.

Clear the intended snow removal area of potential flying objects, such as stones or toys, before you begin throwing snow; loose objects can project out of the snow thrower and hit nearby people and objects. Be aware of objects hidden under the snow.

Never smoke when filling the gas tank. Avoid gasoline spills (be good to Mother Nature.)

Never put your hands in the snow thrower chute for any reason. When the snow is wet, the snow thrower chute may become clogged. When this happens, turn off the snow thrower engine and wait for all moving parts to come to a complete stop. Then, with a cleanout tool, clear the chute. If repair is needed, be sure to turn the engine off first and wait for all moving parts to come to a complete stop.

Never allow children to operate the equipment. Keep children indoors and under supervision.

Never throw snow toward people or cars.

Never allow anyone in front of the equipment.

Keep the snow thrower in good working order. Maintenance. Maintenance. Maintenance.

Wear appropriate reflective clothing and footwear for the weather and activity. Avoid wearing loose fitting clothing. Wear safety glasses to protect eyes from thrown ice, stones, and other projectiles. Keep your hair away from the snow thrower.

Never disable safety features on the snow thrower equipment. Please refer to the snow thrower owner's manual for details.

Wha Wha

I watched the holiday television special - A Charlie Brown Christmas - recently. In particular, I really enjoyed listening to the teacher say wha wha, wha wha. I recognize that adults only speak wha wha in the Charlie Brown comic world. Nonetheless, I understand that she is saying Yard Safety, Yard Safety. Nonetheless, there are many people who hear blah blah, blah blah with regards to yard safety. Blah is a word that is sometimes used as an expression for words or feelings where the specifics are not considered important to the speaker or writer. Blah, blah, blah, blah is often used to show irritation towards someone who speaks monotonously or on a tedious topic. Sometimes people say "blah blah blah blah blah" to represent their monotonous attitude. It is a shame that many people do not care about yard safety awareness until somebody gets hurts. Think before you cut. It hurts. Be yard safe! Wha Wha not Blah Blah! Think yard safety!

Wha Wha, Wha Wha and Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!
