You didnt upset me. Ive been around them for over 15 years. I know they do great work but their prices are through the roof.

I used to refer all my customers to them but when they kept raising prices I quit doing it.

I gotta buddy who used to work for them and he left because he was sick of the daily prayers of asking God to send them money.

I thought he was joking when he told me this last summer after he left. I fell off my barstool laughing and then he told me he was dead serious.

He said they all get together first thing in the morning before they head out, get in a circle and pray for good weather and more customers so they can make more money.

Im a Catholic, Im all for praying, but IMO its a private act between God and I and Im certainly not going to ask for money. He had the same opinion.

yep my parents live on a farm in linn county, I go back and help most weekends, went back last weekend, what a fing mess!!!! its miserable, this is by far the worst I have seen the roads, I hope it either freezes up or finishes draining soon. I washed my car 2 weeks ago to get the salt off, went home driving like 10 mph and its just as dirty as before, oh well at least the dust wont eat at my paint.

Hey teamgreendude, did you join explorers?

sure did man It's amazing !!!!!!!, although some dude named aron(however you spell it) got kicked out because he wore the fire jacket to a movie and a city rep happened to be there, and before you know it he's gone. Other than that business is going along nicely, picked up the village presbyterian church job(6641 mission road) and Since there seem to be nothing but rips offs on craigslist, my parents will be pitching in some extra $$$$ to help me buy a nicer one. Anyway though how's collage going will you be putting the bobcat to work when you get back ?

Hahaha thats funny that kid was such an a$$clown, I knew him in boy scouts he was a tool back then. I was on the interview group that interviewed him, I knew he was just gonna be a problem but we cant really cut anybody. He is just cocky enough that he would do something like that. During a spirit week in high school one of the theme days was child hood hero day, I was gonna wear my bunker gear but I decided it wasnt worth getting kicked out.

College is good, I close on a house the end of February. So I get to bring my baby down to break out an old pool, that ought to be fun.

Glad to hear you picked up more business, sounds like your doing good if youre doing fert. and are maintain a church. I always wanted to get into churches and commercial stuff but I wasnt insured and I did just fine off my residential accounts.
