      Leatherman MUT – Pruning in the Garden

      Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

      A task that had needed to be done for a while now was to prune the lower limbs from a small pine tree in my garden. Over that last year or so the lower branches seem to have dried up quite alot. Having had experience of a similar bush being set on fire in my garden I did not what this one to go the same way whether it was deliberate or not. I decided to use the saw blade of my Leatherman MUT EOD to show the versatility of the tool. As I though the Leatherman MUT performed great and given the size of the branches which were no thicker than 1.5 inch it proved more than capable. Clearly larger saws perform this task of pruning better but it goes to show that multi-tools and in particular Leatherman’s are a great addition to even a gardeners tool kit.

        Japanese house # 9

        Sunday, July 31st, 2011

        Yard work and the installation of a Japanese door intercom or door phone as they say. 20000 yen for the unit and its got a camera and night lights with a big color screen inside. 8000 yen more for the wire and stuff to install it. I cleared the overgrown front yard and then dug a ditch and ran the cables for the camera. I had my first experience working with Japanese PVC conduit and it was a breeze. These things are awesome! It will save a snapshot of the person who rang the doorbell when you are not home and it has led lights to illuminate the person at night. It has an adjustable camera and it can be integrated with your home phone and smoke detectors etc. With some units you can get an extra handset like a phone but it has a screen on it so you can carry it with you around the house and not miss a delivery or friend stopping by.

            Horticultural Society of Pakistan’s Flower Show 2009 (Part 3 of 4)

            Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

            Every year in either late February or early March, the Horticultural Society of Pakistan organizes a mega flower show in Karachi (the largest city of Pakistan). So this here is my first ever try at making a long video of it! Venue is of course DHA’s seaview beach park. I unfortunately could not capture the gardening tools which were on display, as my camera’s battery ran out of juice. But everything else was recorded. This is the 3rd of 4 videos. I regrettably had to split the video in 4 parts, because the original file was too large to upload here. However the full version can be see on Vimeo (in much better resolution). www.vimeo.com
