    I can't believe its 60 in the burgh. I got the itch to pull out the wb and cut my grass. Did it need it?-not really but it looks good and I was able to think about what I needed to do differently in 2005 with the business while cutting.
    One thought I had was how I took for granded the cash flow of just cutting I had in 2004. Being that 2004 was my first true full time in the business I will not b!*ch about a quick $30 in 20min on grass in 2005!

    Wow.... Jan 1st and you get to cut the grass while here in Utah we ended up pushing snow today. It just isn't fair.....It will probably be months before we even see the grass again.

    Wells, remember you live in northern Utah, down here in the south we can still work. Yesterday I did a leaf cleanup and mowed my lawn.

    It was 70 degree's here in MO yesterday, I put a coat of wax on the Dodge. One of the neighbor's walking by was like "how often do you get a chance to wax your truck end of December" laughing. It felt like early spring out there today :) :) :) :)

    50 here in New Hampshire today.

    All of the snow melted away leaving nice green lawns. The only thing that really stinks is the next time snow falls, we have to be careful not to rip up that nice turf with the plows!

    The good part of it is, we can check out the commercial properties that are going to come up for bid.
