Invention Needed

I live among oak leaves, pulled weeds, grass clippings and pruning debris. I am determined to have the best yard mulch possible to cover my plantings to conserve water.

Here's what I need: a chipper shredder machine.

I wish our neighborhood would buy a machine to loan out to neighbors.

These machines are gas powered.

Even better, I want someone to make a stair-stepper exerciser to power the chipper shredder.

If Dr. Joe Stirt of Charlottesville, Va. can use his treadmill to work on his blog, why can't my feets power a chipper shredder so I can recycle plant material into lovely, lovely mulch?

It takes oatmeal to power my imagination,

I do believe that you are on to something!

I would like a general converter, to attach your exercise-machine-of-choice to your electronic-thinger-of-choice. I would love a treadmill hooked up to my TV, for example, but my husband should hook it up to the coffee machine.

Once again, your brillance chines through. now if we can figure out a way to get killer thighs while clenaing the litter boxes.

I have a chipper shredder machine, but attaching it to a treadmill for power is genius. On the other hand, I am always so sore from bending to pick up and stuffing clippings into the machine when I use the chipper, that I am concerned that I would never be able to move again if I had to power it with leg power.
