    I think they were just commenting on the quality of a man's charaacter who does such things. I agree.

    One small exception: the equally low life scum bag who makes no effort to secure their rudimentary little marketing effort to the door or mailbox. That is nothing but premeditated litter (which, I believe should be a felony)!

    Thats crazy, naming your own price. Hell i should tell him 5.00 a lawn and give him all my accounts and sit back and collect a check. Yea right, I wouldnt have any accounts at the end of the year, probally hack them all up.:laugh: Its getting pretty stupid out in the field. It happens every season though, this is nothing new. Good luck

    I have only seen a few flyers @ my house this year. Usually its jam packed. I think some of the unemployed going around while collecting benefits have run out and actually had to go get a job. Might not be as bad this year

    Hey guys my work partner asked me to Post an ad on here...hes (maybe WE..If this works) looking for a Liquid storage tank, like a Tote... PM me if you do.
    Last year we cut his grass every week. Since it was always watered etc. Then he got the bill and almost passed out! ( i mean Water Bill)

    So he showed me his plan for this year....He plans to use a Tote to hold Screened Gutter and sump pump water>> There into a Sprinkler pump (1/2 HP) >>To his in ground system....Each zone has 3 sprinklers...Also he only cares about his front yard... so I think its like 2 lawns zones and one flower bed zone.

    Do you guys think this would work? I think if it does it would be a nice and Eco friendly.... Might have to do this at my house too! lol
