Thank you for the friendly & sincere advice. I'm sure it will go a long way. I appreciate your honesty and value your help! By the way, I noticed the Maryland flag; I'm from Hagerstown, MD originally...knew I could count on someone from the Old Line State!

DIESEL IS THE WAY TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!! never used my insurance so i dont know about it, i suppose as long as your inc. or llc you wont loose your shirt. get quick books for your billing, super simple. and above all if you do the best job you can you will grow. i gained 79 accounts last year alone.
good luck

Thank you for being helpful & sincere. I will take your advice and together with some other tips and advice received will put it to practice. Thanks for not being another joker! It's fun to joke around, but not so enjoyable being the brunt of a joke when it comes to a livelyhood. Appreciate it!

miss the crabs

Yeah, know what you're saying. I used to buy crab meat for cakes from Phillips in Baltimore, even though they weren't blue crabs, when you wanted to make cakes, they had the best price. At least now you can find Old Bay down here. When I was first stationed here in '96 you couldn't find it anywhere. Had to bring it down when I went back home.

there was a place outside Frederick, called the Cracked Claw. Good place for crab, very crowded all the time now though...
