Budweiser has an up and down reputation in the states for sure..... I currently live in Upstate New York but I was born, raised, and lived in Boston until I was 30 years old and I can tell you one thing... It would be rare to find a laborer or tradesman(basically a hard working man) drinking anything else but bud after work. This was especially true through the 80's and 90's until the whole "micro-brew" craze took over after the turn of the century. Don't get me wrong, I personally love a nice pale ale, (yes, Arrogant Bastard made by the nice fellows of Stone Brewery is my favorite) especially when paired with something yummy to eat. To be quite honest, I believe that the market is flooded with too many micro brews now-a-days all with crazy logo's and names and even crazier tastes.... However, I am in no way shape or form too much of a "beer snob" to crack buds(Budweiser's) with my crew on a Friday afternoon. Or to share them with my Pops and some Chinese food when I visit Boston....

For the most part, we are incredibly fortunate to work outdoors rather than being stuck inside, looking at the same four walls every day.

I've begun to snap a photo here and there of items of interest that I happen upon in my daily "routine". When you look up, and away from the grass at your feet, you will notice that there is nothing "routine" about outdoor work - there is always something different to see.

Here are some of the things that I see. [B][COLOR="Green"][SIZE="3"]Feel free to add some of your own
Seems that not enough green industry workers take time to enjoy the details of the plants. I find the interest more common with Certified Arborists, and in landscaping, seems more so with company owners or workers with longer experience.

One day while pruning ... paused to snap this ...
