    Depends on how far and if there are any other blower companies closer. I would try going through www.mulchblowing.com I don't want to take any work from my fellow EB guys. Pluse we get booked up fast this time of year so I don't know if it would be profitable to do so. Let me know if you can't find anyone by you and I will see what I can do.

    jeremy, i dont know if anyone would answer all of these questions on here...i'd guess you best bet is to PM matt or someone else. not that they are too personal, but maybe they dont want everyone to see them on here. especially #9.

    that's just my take on this. hope you get it done. i sometimes made things up in school when i could not get in touch with the people i needed to talk to.

    i remember one time i called Wal*Mart and K*Mart and i was asking them for the square footage of their stores. the managers thought i was crazy. hehe

    wal*mart was about 144K, Kmart was 10K less.

    Had a good day today, had 6 est. to give and ended the day with 1 new lawn customer, and 3 for "other" services, 1 NO...that said "Its to much $" and 1 that i have to go back in 2 weeks (some one died in their fam. yesterday so they were not in the mood)...

    and i cleaned my drive way, it was dark brown from all the dirt!

    all in all it was a good day, and the weather was nice too!

    hope you all enjoyed the weather.. :cool2:

    today stunk for me. Actually it started last night, I had to fast for approx 10 hours because a lady was coming to the house at 9am to draw blood from me for my life insurance policy. After she left, I went back to bed because I had no energy from not eating and slept in until like 12:30pm.

    And then it snowed the entire day, nothing stuck at all. I was hoping that maybe I could do some saltings, but no luck.

    ok, i found out that i will be at the dentist until 1pm on saturday....

    so here is the plan....i am thinking about going to lucky's at 3pm. that will give us a chance to talk and leave early if we have to.

    Also, if you want Snookers instead, i am cool with it. they have wings, beer, pool tables, games, etc....let me know.

    But as of now, it's 3pm on saturday....Location can be changed depending on your input. I was not too impressed with the Service at Lucki's last time.
