    I'm just wondering what he talks (types?) about. He can't have that many questions, and I haven't seen him in the political section.....W, not meaning to pimp you. I was looking at your website, it looks great. Only two things I would change, and feel free to ignore me or viciously flame me for attacking your site, whichever you prefer. I'd wear a long sleeve shirt to cover up the ink, and if you haven't got any testimonials yet I'd get rid of the "Testimonials" link. Outside of that it's a great looking site.

    Yeah, the accounting work sucks. Did you get your mower problems figured out? Hope the rest of year goes great for you just like the first month did!

    Congrats bigw! Some on this forum I think want to see you fail, but me, I think you are doing a great job and I hope you grow to a much larger company...just dont move to Winder, GA!!!

    I think I agree with IA_James, cover the ink for your website pictures. You can still show those large biceps (Man those suckers are BIG) if you cover with a UA long sleeve. Some people make assumptions or judge people by tatoos and I would hate for this to happen to you.

    Your website does look fantastic though...very professional looking.
