Wha Wha

I watched the holiday television special - A Charlie Brown Christmas - a few days ago. In particular, I really enjoy 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!

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.

Happy Kwanzaa

Happy Kwanzaa!

Kwanzaa is a week-long holiday celebrated primarily in the United States honoring African heritage, marked by participants lighting a kinara (candle holder). It is observed from December 26 to January 1 each year. Kwanzaa consists of seven days of celebration, featuring activities such as candle-lighting and pouring of libations, and culminating in a feast and gift giving. It was created by Ron Karenga and was first celebrated from December 26, 1966, to January 1, 1967.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man applauds the celebration of Kwanzaa. Likewise, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man would like to promote a yard safety celebration. Furthermore, the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man merchandise would be a nice Kwanzaa gift. In many ways, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man can identify with the Kwanzaa celebration. Be yard safe!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Christmas or Christmas Day is an annual holiday that marks the traditional birthdate of Jesus of Nazareth. Christmas combines the celebration of Jesus' birth with various other traditions and customs, many of which were influenced by ancient winter festivals such as Yule and Saturnalia. Christmas traditions include the display of Nativity scenes and Christmas trees, the exchange of gifts and cards, and the arrival of Father Christmas (Santa Claus) on Christmas Eve. Popular Christmas themes include the promotion of goodwill, giving, compassion, and quality family time.

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man shares with the world the gift of yard safety awareness. He strives to be a goodwill ambassador for yard safety. He maintains compassion and passion to create yard safety awareness and to introduce preventive measures in order to reduce yard accidents to zero. He is spending Christmas in Hermitage, Pennsylvania with family and friends. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man glorifies God!

Happy Holidays! May the peace of the Lord be with you now and through the coming year!

Happy Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah! This year Hanukkah falls on the secular calendar December 20 -28, 2011.

Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights or Festival of Rededication, is an eight-day Jewish holiday that starts on the 25th day of Kislev, which may be in December, late November, or, while very rare in occasion, early January (as was the case for the Hanukkah of 2005–2006).

The holiday was called Hanukkah meaning "dedication" because it marks the re-dedication of the Temple after its desecration under Antiochus IV. Spiritually, Hanukkah commemorates the Miracle of the Oil. According to the Talmud, at the re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem following the victory of the Maccabees over the Seleucid Empire, there was only enough consecrated olive oil to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days - which was the length of time it took to press, prepare and consecrate new oil.

Likewise, Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man is dedicated to Yard Safety Awareness. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man forges on with hopes that individuals will spread the yard safety message. It would be great if some people would buy some Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man merchandise and promote yard safety awareness. It would be another miracle.
