Everybody has good jobs and bad jobs. I didn't bash him, in fact I said that it wasn't up to his standard of work and i merely pointed out something that was very obvious.
LBF - "my work" your way outta the loop dude. I don't install anymore just design.

Funny how some people think they know it all and there work looks like crap.

Interesting. Savage, uh, I mean Certpro previously stated he is a one man show. Now, admidst a recession, there's "guys" in the picture, and now he only designs"!!!

For the love of a Spayd's lawn spreader, good golly it's hard to keep track of all this!!!!


I did look at Tthomass's photo, and in my opinion, I think the wall looks fine. That wall doesn't have a corner persay(sp), it has *ends*. I think we would have done the same.

The owner of Valley went through the same program as I did. I was in AG Tech but it sounds like you're pursuing differently. Radford.........ah yes, I've had a few good times there at BT's, Riley's, Sharky's......

How's Valley holding up? Been to Frank's house?

Unfortunately no. I was on a detail crew, only mowing a couple times. I've been by his place though doing detail visits. I did greenburgs house, and the baseball coaches house.

yea todds a good guy. Seems like a really good business man and knows what hes doing in the industry. We've lost a lot of contracts because the mowers arnt doing their jobs. Have had some employee issues as well. I stopped working now because im in school, but i keep in touch with all of them and the managers. plan to do some snow removal and get back with them in the spring. they are starting to lay people off now.

I'll be at the NC State game. I was hoping for this Thursday too but don't think it will happen. I went to the Miami game, stood in the rain and though I had gear on, still got a nice cold that about kicked my butt.

When were you there? I was there from '93 to '97. Ag undecided, Ag tech, Animal Science, and Ag tech again. Maybe we ran into each other.
