    I'm not interested in how much money you make or anything of that sort, though. That's kind of rude to discuss openly IMO. This ain't a pissin contest

    You got me! I spelled it wrong. I'm 32 years old by the way.

    The license is from the pesticide and fert division in Ohio. The license is titled commercial applicator, though. I said I doubt I'll even offer these services for a few years. I'm not gonna go sprayin without the knowledge.

    Never say the " never too old".:nono:

    It sneaks up on you like a theif in the night

    I can remember saying "if it is too loud then your too old"
    Now I catch myself yelling "turn that crap down" :laugh::laugh:
    Unless it is some good old 80's stuff like Run DMC, Tears for Fears, ect....
    then we can turn it up for 5 or 10 minutes :drinkup::cool2:

    I'm 32, but feel much older. We just bought a Cadillac DTS today, actually. What a sweet ride! What time does Bingo start? Where's my teeth?

    Math is a problem for younger people.

    I recently read an "in depth" article concerning the problems younger people are having to deal with these days when it comes to math skills needed to succeed in the world of building (and other related jobs that involve math).

    The article said that, as a result of very thorough testing involving math problems, they found that 47% of people under 30 years old had the equivalent of a 6th grade level when it comes to math skills.

    Stop and think about that for a moment....47% are at a 6th grade level when it comes to math!

    47%.....that's almost a third!

    Can I be in your club? The old and the new. By myself. You can't see the pattern in the decking but it's the same as the handrails. The handrails are a little odd but that's what the HO wanted. I also put a SunSetter 20' retractable awning on there too.
