Just got to love this late winter weather. A couple of days last week I was sweating, then Friday and Sat I was freezing while mowing and then Sunday I was sweating again. Well yesterday I came home around 2 because I feel like someone shoot at me and missed but sh$t at me and hit. I was hoping for a big downpour today but it is just the drizzle again so far.
On the bright side though, the Rye I put out late Sep and early Oct is fianally starting to germinate and grow lol

What is yall's opinions on double sided business cards. I haven't done that before, but I'm thinking of putting my logo and contact info on the front and then listing some specials and services on the back. What do you guys think? Do people respond well to that?

The old timers and farmers always say, "If it thunders in February it will freeze in April". Well we had thunder the other night.

I think I can remember this being pretty much true except for last winter [which really was not much of a winter].

It would certainly be nice to have some more cool weather in hopes that it won't be such a brutal summer this year.
