    anyone see the sappranos last night? well, what happens is, the mob guy tells the lawn guy he must pay him 2% of his income, as "protection" to maintain the right to work in his area. so of course, got me thinking......i see so many unlicensed guys applying pesticides, i could drop a dime on them in a minute, but it may be profitable, if i just tell them they have to pay me xx amount per month, to keep quiet. what do u think? another great idea, isn't it?

    Don't forget to carry a shovel with you.Not everyone has one on hand for getting whacked upside the head with.

    See,that's where you're going wrong.You gotta have a Cadillac to pull up in so you can throw the 21" walk behind in the trunk.Best to wait till one of the guys in the tree and the other is holding his safety rope.
    :) I was waiting on the phone calls last night when I saw that one.
