    For any of you that follow the NBA, the Orlando Magic are looking really good so far in the playoffs. They have swept the first two rounds, but will have a tough series against Boston or Cleveland next week.

    How has business been going for all of you this spring?

    How is your business doing compared to last year?

    I have noticed a lot of new landscaping businesses this year. I know it happens every year, but this year with the economy staying tough, it seems like there are even more than usual. We have a few clients that are experiencing significant growth with government and commercial projects, but we have not seen a whole lot of growth from guys on the residential side. Are any of you having success with increasing your revenues on residential accounts?

    :usflag: We've got a church camp up that way my family goes to every summer... it's actually in White Springs, Fl ( in Facil, actually) just down the road from the Suwannee River State Park where the old Spring-house is. I love it up there, nice & laid back country folks for the most part.

    Later!
