Do you have an electric lawn mower?

Could we borrow it for a short while (eg just a couple of days) to try it out?

They can be left at the RESEED Centre in Penguin marked 'Michelle', or we can arrange pick up / drop off in Burnie or Heybridge.

Let us know if you'd like to donate or would like CENTs for them.

Land lease wanted for tiny home! Around South of Hobart

I'd love to rent land for my tiny home south of Hobart, around Kingston area or a bit further.
(Wired NBN would be fanastic though as I run a business online).

Running water and electicity would be fantastic.
Privacy is a must as I don't want to be in your space.
Must be flat and have access so I can have the home towed in (it is on a semi trailer so towed by a primer).
My home is 40ft, and I would build a temporary deck around it, plant vegie gardens etc, make a little home for our family.
I have two young children whom I homeschool. We are vegatarian. We are very natural minded and respectful.

Let me know if you have something suitable or know of someone who does!
Will pay weekly rent in cash.

Does anyone have a copy of Howard Kasschau Piano Course Book 5, Step by Step Mastery of the Piano (Schirmer, N.Y) that they could sell or hire out?

Happy to pay either dollars or cents to cover postage.

Can anyone rebuild laptops?

Please help! I have 5 old laptops, some working, some broken, that all have different things wrong with them. Some were very expensive and hot stuff in their day, and may only need minor repairs. Other working parts could be salvaged from the broken machines to fix others....

I know it's possible, but my go-to laptop fixer lives in England!

If this is a job that you think you can take on, please contact me. Experienced techies only though please, no tinkerers! My husband can tinker but I really want an expert on the job.

Shavings for composting toilet

I'd like wood shavings, please.  It's to help break down humanure in my composting toilet compost pile, which will later be used under fruit trees, etc.  So the shavings need to be free of toxic chemicals (no shavings from treated pine, for example).  I find wood shavings work better than paper pellets, or sawdust.
