    Got a "chain" mailer from Scotts today. Offering "entrepreneurs" such as myself to join in on the estimated $500 million in sales they are projecting over the next five years. They "are now embarking on a greatly accelerated expansion program that will establish new franchises in many markets."

    Sounds interesting, but I don't want another ceiling over my head. Will the major "weeds" choke themselves out and open a larger market for the service/quality oriented "little known weeds"???

    Nice looking truck though!
