Excerpt from this guide

Chapter 1

The Green, Green Grass Of Home

When you think back to the long, lazy summers of your youth, chances are your recollections are full of achingly nostalgic memories like an oversized tire swing under a big shady tree. Tall frosty glasses of lemonade wreathed in pearls of moisture. Crickets and tree frogs throatily singing their sweet night song. And the high-pitched whine of lawn mowers carrying on the warm summer breeze.

If you’re like a lot of people, you were trudging along behind one of those mowers back then, pushing with all your might and sweating profusely, just so you could make a few bucks to buy some baseball cards or a really cool bike. You may have occasionally mowed down a few pansies or zebra-striped a lawn, but you sure were proud when the homeowner came to the door, surveyed your handiwork, and forked over the agreed-upon fee.
