    Only business I've done with government is maintain a Post office, but that is federal.....I am not surprised the state comes with a lot of headaches.

    Time to check in with everyone. How is business looking this season for you area of the state? It's shaping up very well here with only a slight problem - no spring time. We are just finishing getting rid of our snow banks and some lawns are already looking pretty green. There is NO WAY we are going to get through all of our spring clean ups before the mowing begins. I have almost all my customers on contracts this year for the first time and also had to raise the prices (afraid of fuel costs), but everyone seems happy. Let's keep the ball rolling! =D
