    Seems to come in waves. I don't advertise, no signs, nothing. For months not even any bids. This last month I picked up about 6 accounts from another LCO, too far to drive to service them and 4 referral's from other sources. I picked up 3 so far which is very unusual because I am always the high bidder. The last two I was more than double the old guy. One before that I was 4 times higher than the old guy :confused: I don't know whats up. But I am not complaining that's for sure.

    yellow pages. Alot of calls in the last 2 weeks. Probably about 20-25. Only got 3, but I dont even bother with them if they seem like they may be a waste of time.
