    My good lady bought me a cordless mini chainsaw for my birthday as she thought it would be easier to use in amongst the crab apple branches than loppers.  Time will tell, but it's nice that she'd thought about it.  Even if it doesn't help, it was worth the purchase price for the instruction manual which is loosely translated from Chinese.  There are a couple of instructions in particular which I can make no sense of.

    1.  In order to save the use of the batteries, do not allow this load of overloaded lice to cut...
    2.  Please wear suitable clothing when using this parent.
    3. Do not allow the battery to run out of all power in the soap tank.
    4. Carefully open the package.  Check components are all : electric coarse branch.

    I'm sure I couldn't translate instructions from English to Chinese without problems, but I would pass them by a native Chinese speaker to ensure they made sense.

    Those are just wonderful @KT53
    We have a lot of friends in Turkey who often post in Turkish on Facebook.  Some of the translations are hilarious.

    Watching the Test match from India has been a delight.  And something to get up for each morning...   :)

    @Hostafan1 you are  getting 30 minutes more than we are at the moment,  but I agree it's all heading in the right direction.

    Being able to watch live cricket without having to subscribe to Sky or other pay to view broadcasters is wonderful.  Hopefully there will be more.  That said, I watched Man U last night on BBC and wouldn't have seen such a poor game if it had been on Sky or BT Sport.  You win some, you lose some.
