Well to me it looks like Jim... and Boots seem to be the most pissed off about this. Maybe Dana if he was around.

Personally ,
The guy was merely trying to figure out the why's. Well... Now he knows ; And knowing is half the battle right?
I don't think his op should have been offendable for someone to make a 'smart' remark. Informing him should have been good enough.

Which Irrig8tor did amazingly!

I don't see how this is an argument like ' boots and kiril ' when we don't know the guy and he wasn't arguing anything. Simple fact. We told him to check the site, check his local authorities, play the game right and straight.

So now it's up to him to cough up the bucks and be a successful business.

If I owned a business, I would check laws and rules personally before believing what someone told me. Also, if his old boss had one... What's the big deal for him getting one.. Fork it out and play it right like the rest of us!

Hey, don't include me in the bash the noob fest, my hand is still smarting from the last slap. But ................ sometimes boots (and others) need to be kicked around when they get too big for their britches .... and no one else will do it unfortunately.

Congratulations on owning your business for a year! That is a milestone, keep it up.

Dont get your panties tied up so tight over things said here. Join in the fun, get your license, and play along. Do good work and grow our business.

Youll find it is a good time here. Try the kool-aid.

Thanks for the recognition.... the CSLB site is actually quite easy to navigate once you learn it's quirks.

MowingInEureka should be able to find his answers there without having to call them.

As someone who started my own business at about the same time in my life and with similar circumstances, I can relate.

I actually thought about relocating to his area when I was about his age, but other things intervened, and the prospects of finding work year round there were daunting...

...and supplementing an income with Humboldt County's most well known cash crop just seemed like more risk than I wanted to take on... :-)

BTW, I heard somewhere that Humboldt and Mendocino bought more Hunter SVCs per capita than anywhere else... interesting, eh?

I can't believe I just read this thread. You guys communicate about as well as a divorce court hearing.

mitch , i'm having computer problems so i'll make this as short as possible.

i posted a comment suggesting he call the cslb in his original thread about the well.

he then changed threads thus changing the discussion.

i was sarcastic only after mowingineureka repeatedly tried justifying his need for a contractors licenese, and mildly sarcastic if i might add.

i think gregg did a wonderful job in introducing the cslb to mowingineureka and i applaud him for that.

as far as my writing skills or lack thereof, bfd i'll work on it.

in reference to the boots and kiril comment it was tongue and cheek and about the length of these threads and the over 50 post replies.

it's my opinion that mowingineureka has done a great job of defeating his purpose in asking for help as this has gotten out of hand.

he received the the best advice from lawnect and kiril in the first two posts of his first thread.

argos is right.

i hope this makes it to post, my service keeps cutting in and out today

jim
