    Hey, our company got mentioned, pictures of our employees got posted, and excerpts from an interview with me made it into the New York Times yesterday - Friday. It made it in both the print and the online version of the paper. The story is here;

    NYT Article

    Lisa Kalis, the author, got interested in doing the story after reading a thread we had on Lawnsite a while back. So thanks Lawnsite - a little extra P.R. always helps!

    I think you have to sing up with NY Times to be able to view the story...I wasn't able to see it.

    NY Times, eh? Pretty amazing.

    Yes, that's true. They want your email address and for you to create a username and answer a few questions before you can read any of their articles online. That kinda sucks.

    Hah! Now one of the big local News Channels here in town has called and is coming out tomorrow to do a TV News Spot. They are doing a similar story and saw us in the NYT and want to come out tomorrow and take pics and interview me for the story.

    I just can't stay out of the news. :eek:

    I'd really like to see the story, Mebbe I'll sign up with the NY Times. But, man...I really hate that paper :)

    This has got to be the coolest thing in the world for sure would be for me. How many copies do you have now, and what kinda frames have you got them in? :)
