    Hey grassman, I was in Essex Junction last year and I passed a new maroon Subaru wagon towing a little dinky 4x6 or so trailer with a w/b on it,that's it, it had an advertisement sign on the trailer too. Too bad I didn't have a camera. Just like the pic on turf mag. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, Super Troopers. Worst movie ever made. Me, Myself, and Irene isn't bad though.

    So I'm guessing that the troopers are NOT that way up in the GREEN MT. state?? :p

    Jim @ TURF Magazine here.

    Glad you folks enjoyed the cover. We had a blast doing it (that's my fishing pole ... and my rake we wrecked for the photo).

    Yeah, the license plate is digital magic ... we couldn't resist.

    Can you copy it, etc? Sure ... no problem at all. It's just a magazine ... not high security documents. Have it copied at your local quick print shop ... and if they can't do it, let me know, I'll have one done here and send it to ya.

    And .. why the Vermont plate? Cause we're in northern Vermont (I mean my whole company ... all 7 magazines, including TURF. We also have magazines for construction, tree services, golf courses, forest work and farming -- go to if you're interested).

    Hi Guys --- David @ TURF Mag here . . .

    I'm glad you like the cover. That's my dad's old Murray mower in the trunk.

    For those of you who do not (yet) have your Sub to TURF, here's my editorial for the May issue (with apologies to David Letterman).

    Ten Ways to Tell Your Lawn Care Company is a Scrub

    10 – His company slogan is “Insurance? We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance.”

    9 – He cancels your cutting this week because his mom grounded him.

    8 – Out of habit, he’s always asking you “do you want fries with that?”

    7 – He giggles every time you say “core aeration.”

    6 – His business cards have the name of his rock band scratched out and “lawn care” written in black marker .

    5 – His mower costs less than his sneakers.

    4 – He giggles when you ask for a “dethatching.”

    3 – He insists on calling you “Dude.”

    2 – When you ask if he’s certified, he says “totally.”

    And, the number one way you can tell your lawn care company is a scrub:

    1 – You catch him, “watering the lawn.”

    LOL that was a great top ten list David. Number 9 was my particular favorite. Great cover as well. Keep up the good work.
