Hartnett Electric Log Splitter

Please note:

I make gardens. Or landscape gardens. I studied horticulture. etc. You get the picture.

I do not sell, repair, hire or have anything to do with this product or its company.
I very simply thought it was a good product. That said, I hope you enjoy reading.

Cheers

Electric Log Splitter

If you are thinking cosy nights by the fire, candles, chocolates and a glass of wine but you don’t fancy wearing an eye patch whilst clumps of timber are removed from your, up until quite recent, once very good looking face, then this just maybe is the tool you need to buy your man, or lady….

My experiences aside wry sense of humour aside, for those who have wood burning stoves….. you might just like this one.

Hailing from The Peoples Republic of Cork, Harnett/ Hart Tools are a family run business and this, just one of their products I found pretty amazing, is the 7 Tonne Electric Log Splitter.

As disclaimers go, I don’t own one but a friend of mine purchased one recently and I have to admit I was pretty darned impressed. Definitely one for the man tools list and a heck of a lot simpler than an axe.

My Gardening Blog Tagcloud

I hadn’t seen Tagclouds used in a while. A bit like QR codes are on the verge of becoming I thought. Reading Bernie Goldbach’s blog, I became very interested when I saw what he was actually using them for.

Don’t know what tagclouds are ?

wordle generates “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text.

The source for me, was very simply my gardening blog address. I was quite pleased to see that words that came to the fore were both positive and creative.

Peter Donegan’s QR Code

Here is The Peter Donegan QR code…
qr code peter donegan

What is a QR code you ask:

in short… its a fancy barcode. When you scan it – with an app on your mobile phone – it gives you a particular set of information – for eg. this one below plays audio, whilst the one above will bring you to my blog roll.

Yvonne asked if it could be done in green… try this out 😉

According to Wikipedia:

it was created by Toyota subsidiary Denso-Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. The QR code was created to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed

If you think this above is a bit mental…. it’s not. Check this out for QR code innovation. Although a little boring, in my opinion, the AXA one probably summises it best.
