    you must be in kc? i saw that in the paper. pretty good indicator for the customers out there i think.

    it is very sad state of affairs i feel like you also, ive spent $ and time and sweat and blood ahem.....been close to cryin a time or two. all for what? the industry is being taken over by people that sold cars a few years ago. i guess thats why no one wants an experienced irrigator. just slam it in!!!!

    Some people think that because they can attach a hose to a faucet and turn it on they know everything there is to know about irrigation. :p

    I even looked to try and see what you said, but when you post like 100 per day, finding something you said somewhere else just ain't going to happen. I feel like I live here just with the irrigation posts. Do you actually get any work done besides being here?

    I do have knowledge in other areas of landscaping so I also frequent the hardscaping, maintenance & renovation, public athletic fields, lighting and off topic forums as well. I use a browser that is a multi-tab type and will have as many as six tabs (pages) open at the same time. With email notification it's easy to pick the tab of the forum, go there and then respond if necessary. I also get a lot of PMs from different members. :)

    And yes, I actually put in an 8 hour day. I get up early and spend an hour on the computer before work, sometimes get on in the afternoon and then there's the evenings. I also manage to sandwich in dinner, meetings, visiting relatives, doctors' appointments, etc. between all this. :p
