How many times have you been running the trimmer and a piece of mulch or a rock hits you in the junk. Imagine that with no pants.

If Progress Energy or FPL or both gets another rate increase I think I am going to go nuts!

How in the world to these idiots believe we can handle another 17% increase on top of the 8% they just got earlier this year.

I am going to blow my stack!

And that ad is about idiotic as well! It just shows the perception people have about us. Just a bunch of over-grown gorillas on mowers. I don't think so, thanks, I will keep my clothes on and all my trimmer guards too.....

Tampa lead

Hey guys, got a call from the director of a biz called Camp Bow Wow in Drew park area. They are looking for a cleanup and bids on regular service. Contact name is Brett Holly 813-870-2267. I am not really interested in any commercial accounts at this time. Let me know how it goes.
