Yes, that would be good, but at the moment I have no garden at all! Thus an overabundance of lawn clippings. Also I used up all my compost so I am trying to make more ASAP.

if your gardens are large enough you probably would be far better off putting the clippings directly on the gardens as a thinner mulch than trying to compost them..don't pile them deeply on the garden just kinda sprinkle them around the plants and as they dry out add more..maybe smaller piles ..thinner piles..until they dry out more like hay..and then directly on the garden.
I should have said I am "between gardens". We are redesigning our backyard using mostly native plants, so I have a small nursery growing plants (in pots) that I will use in the coming months. I use a mix of compost and soil when planting pots. Also when I put a plant in its final location, I mix some compost in. And of course we will have a small keyhole garden.
If you don't have a garden, what did you use the compost on?
Thanks! I know what you mean "brings a tear to my eye" - though most people cannot relate to the emotional side of compost.

Brings a tear to my eye... Makes me want to go turn mine, just to hurry it along (I seldom tend to my pile, just keep stacking on). Maybe next chance I get...which may be a few weeks away!
