    That is true, the word Begin to Collect is there. You do not have to go and pay back taxes for prior quarters / months. I used to file quarterly but I would occasionally break that threshold so I just went monthly. Now I am at a level where monthly is required.

    For any of you guys with even one crew who are looking to get out of the stone age the GPS tracking service I use is giving away the $180 tracking equipment for free right now. I only pay $18 a month. Once you have GPS tracking so you know exactly where your crew is, how long it is taking to complete jobs, gas station stops, ect you will be kicking yourself for not getting it years ago. You can't maximize your efficiencies unless you know the time spent working versus in the time in transit. If your operating blind on trust your losing money needlessly.

    I wanted to see if anyone on here was happy with their website hosting service and SEO services they were paying for. It's easy to stand out in smaller markets like Buda where I'm located but much more challenging to stand out in Austin which is the majority of our target market.

    This thread has gotten pretty quite. Here http://www.lawnsite.com/showpost.php?p=4864580&postcount=366 is grub posting I made on my thread. The little SOB's devoured the roots on some Dwarf Fountain Grass.

    They seem to really like Mexican Feather Grass as well but that might be a good thing because it's such a short lived prolific seed producer. I call it Mexican Rabbit Grass because it multiplies so much.

    If you guys ever need a transfer case or manual transmission rebuilt Pistole's in south Austin is the place to go. I think you will find most trans shops in Austin who say they do auto and manual work actually send the manual units to Pistole's. I saw an Eagle Transmission truck pulling in when I was leaving.

    They have been doing trans work for about 50 years. The owner is a down to earth guy who won't sell you anything you don't need. It sounds like people forgetting to keep tabs on the level of oil in the transfer case is a big problem. The oil doesn't leak out most of the time but it cooks down and you don't realize the level has dropped.

    5.5" at the rain gauge not too far from me in Buda. At 360 & Bull Creek they have 11.5". The Lake Travis basin is getting some decent rain but the upper lakes are not.
