Here's To 30 Years!

Well, here it goes...I'm spilling my guts! The most succefull series of articles I ever wrote for Commercial Mowing Magazine were titled "Starting From Scratch" The articles followed me as I was building my business. So I decided to start a personal blog that is starting in 1979 and chronicling my 30 year adventure...the Good, the Bad and the Ugly! An honest look at a very interesting career. I'll do my very best to make posts at least twice a week.
Hope you enjoy it!
