    Pretty conservative around us. Cut on Sunday and you'll lose business.

    Down here it really depends on where you are going. Some small communities can and will enforce noise pollution during certain hours of the day..usually before 9 am and after 9 pm. We try to do commercial at the earliest times starting at 8 am then hit those residential accounts. No weekends here.

    I leave the house at 0800 (8:00 AM for us civilians) and work 'til 5:00. Rarely work any weekends anymore and it does wonders for my psyche... :)
