CORDLESS CHAIN SAW

If you have heavy trimming work in the yard but don't like the noise and size of a gas-powered chain saw, this compact Black & Decker number might be just what you need. Think of it as a high-powered trimmer. Batteries also go with some other B&D tools. And anyone who gets tired of going back to the tool shelf time and time again will appreciate a Kobalt 22-piece tool-bag set. Price: Chain saw $99.97, tool set $49.98; Lowe's home improvement.

KISS ME, YOU FOOL
