    I have been getting 3 to 4 phone calls a day from guys looking for work. In most cases they have no idea what the work is and just looking for a pay check. True my area is one with the highest unemployment rate in the country. Living in Paradise is not cheap and many here are finding out just how expensive it can be. But just like I tell a new customer with a weedy lawn "It is going to look worse before it looks better.

    I haven't received even one call so far this year. Our county unemployment rate is 7.7% (as I remember);higher than it's been in years. I'm really surprised at no calls. Not sure what gives.

    I only pay a 7 figure salary per year and you have to show up at least a Tenth of the time. BTW Late is fine, better to be late than not at all.

    I had a guy call and cancel his lawn service. Then he asked me if I needed any carpentry work done around the house! Or windows, or roof, or plumbing..
