The Husqvarna ‘AutoMower’? It’s like a Roomba for your grass…

*Robotic mowers offer many advantages.  They are also compact, easy to store and, being emission-free, they’re even good for the planet. Robotic mowers use rechargeable, lithium-ion batteries.  Peace and quiet: most models only emit around 58-75 decibels. The Husqvarna Automower will happily mow in wet weather. They’ll also work in the dark and, being among the quietest of the robotic mowers, can mow at night without disturbing neighbors.   www.husqvarna.com/uk/roboticmowers

 

Free Pastor Brunson: The Trump administration is pressuring Turkey to release an American pastor (Andrew Brunson) accused of espionage or the nation will face “consequences”. Pastor Andrew Brunson, who is a U.S. citizen from Black Mountain, has been living in Turkey for 23 years, running a Presbyterian Christian church with the full knowledge of local Turkish authorities.

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which is helping to represent Brunson, said Brunson has been held nearly a year and a half without being formally charged.   *Demand Pastor Andrew’s freedom today. https://beheardproject.com/andrew-brunson
