    Was going to reply to Kansas, but decided it wasn't worth the response. Boy wish I could just take shots at people with complete aninimity.

    Good to hear. Well were finally getting some interest again. I decided to really push the networking aspect and it is paying off. Landed a great job from a pool company.

    Maybe if you could sell a little better you wouldn't have had to move across the country to get another job after your business failed, and then your current boss wouldn't have to keep offering to purchase you competitors because you can't out perform them either.

    that will probably get you deleted.

    and for the record, I think I said way back when that the strainer thing was probably something a little out there for me too. I don't want clients expecting me to do that. The valence/led rope light thing was awesome, and i would replicate that.

    Looking at all the photo's of firefly's demos, I really am stunned that the quality of the work did not yield more fruit.

    and I think we need to let this thread be about the malibu lights for sale and leave it at that. as exciting as this banter is, ok guys?

    I wonder what HD is doing now that Malibu is no longer? Is HD doing their own lighting importing? I wonder if they will be the next solid brass importer??? LOL :cry: I can just see it now! :hammerhead:

    Seriously though is HD doing something on their own? I have to imagne that has something to do with why Malibu is going under?

    The HD's around Tampa switched to stocking a new line of Hampton Bay and which seems to be positioned (packaging and product) a slight notch up in quality for consumer landscape lighting.

    Competition comes from all directions and can't be stopped. The only way to effectively counteract is focus on improving our own businesses opposed to focusing on others. (Joey that is not directed at you--just a general comment on how I think we should all try and forge thru this recession).

    Back to the thread--Tom's here to announce the great deals on Malibu and selling them at what I gotta believe is below cost.
