Hi, I am Kevins wife and I just want to say how sorry I am. As my husband stated before, we are starting an excavating business in 2003. While doing research for our business plan, we found a small earthworks forum and we posted our question about annual revenue. The only response we got was to post our question on your site as it had more members. So we did and your responses were very helpful. Since that day I have been reading and searching through your thousands of threads in all the forums, and on almost every page (especially in the Elements of Business) is some poor, totally innocent, ignorant person like myself posting the same question about starting a business. Most of you guys always answer with encouragement and help although you must want to pull your hair out with yet another poor sap not using the search forum first. I dont know if its possible, but there should be a requirement when you first register that you have to search this site thoroughly before youre allowed to post your first question. Again I just want to say how sorry I am and how much I admire you guys for all the encouragement and information you give to new people like us. Thank You!
