    Bobby's just pushing for the 10,000 post mark. Hopefully once he hits it he slows down a bit.

    who cares... when ur schedule is filled and anyone can easily be replaced you can hang up and drop anyone u choose
    we have 110-120 houses and we can lose them all and get another 100+ next year

    I do agree with you :hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead:

    I think a dollar a minute is lame and anyone who prices it that way is getting hosed.
