Thanks, that sounds nice to ensure being paid all year long, i better get to thinking on what to write because that is a lot of pages, especially for me to write. I would have to have the 3 bi weekly customers pay me per mow i guess once i grow and have others pay monthly via contract/agreement so i can have a few bucks every other week for expenses to keep doing business. Thanks for the advice
