this year I think is going to be one of the shortest seasons ever, unless we get some nice weather in November to make up for the lost weeks this month

Hey guys i think i may have asked this question before. But I just went up to the local post office to see if i could put stuff on the outside of the mail box and they said nope that is illegal. so i guess the only other thing to do is walk them door to door. This is the first year i am really advertising any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

yup it's illegal. A federal offense. You might want to check with your city as well to see whether you need a permit to hang door hangers or post flyers. I know here you need a permit. Its called a "peddlers permit."
