agreed......

Doing the tree work in this weather will kill people (literally). A guy in NC died from "heat exhaustion", doing this stuff..


My boss is a selling foreman, soon to be Rep. This was a great HOT HOT season, selling Mid season checkups..I really think he should start pushing audits and BF testing....Do stuff that nobody else does..

I showed him Jims trick with battery's the other day at a safety meeting, he almost sh!t himself...

I was out in the boonies, and were there any concerns about water shortages? Not a peep, but all those brown lawns inspired some fire warnings.

Your clients will not go for BF testing if it's not enforced.

Comfortable? Yes. Ugly? Without question. Hot? Not in the least.

Nice site. This is the kind of client that you want, big money. Especially within spitting distance of the ocean. Very nice.
