    I got to church this a.m. and a few of the people there told me they had seen me in the paper this morning, with commente like "I didn't know you did that" and "looks good".

    I got home opened my paper to find a picture of me mixing chemicals in my tank 2 columns wide abd 3 inches tall andanother one 3 columns wide and6 inches tall of me spraying a lawn!
    Along with an articul I interviewed for about 2 1/2 months ago!! It is in the "Bussiness" section of the paper, with the title of "Give your lawn a 'happy new year' with Natural Lawn Care. The whole thing covers a whole half of a page!

    Good advertising or what? I liked the price too FREE!!!!!!!!

    If the paper is a local one, Editors are always looking for interesting storys Turf care is a great spring time story. you and your expertise in 250 words or less is a great advertisement. your time is the only investment, try writing it now that way when spring gets here your on page 2 above the fold and your ad is below the fold of course you negotiated a great price too!
