    It's that time of the year again- I'm seeing all the new scrubs on the road that will last a season or two. I'm not knocking you new guys starting a ligitament bus., just the ones with no lic., and insurance.

    I have always been under the impression that unless you have a registered trademark (ie.your name), thta you are fighting a loseing battle. I have seen it here where someone has Custom Lawn care and then someone will come out with CLC on the trucks and all the paperwork says Custom Lawn Care.

    I think it is required by law in South Carolina that you haul a trailor and mower behind your vehicle. Anyone caught not doing so will have to immediatly go out a get a real Dayummm Job
