    I should have mentioned this too. Speaking of "a lot of DG's in AL", I live on a small road that runs paralell to I65 and barely within view of I65.

    If I go 2 miles north on my road there's a DG there. If I go 2 miles south on my road there's a DG there too!

    There's also a 3rd DG about 2 miles west of the DG that is south of my house. No shortage of DG's here for sure! :drinkup:

    Big Nicky, went through the exact same thing 13 years ago. It'll get better, Took me about 5 - 6 months. Door jamb came back on my knee and pushed thigh bone back through the socket. Thirteen years later I'm doing ok:dancing:. Still able to push a mower.

    what are you referring to? I don't recall you ever receiving a ban from viewing or posting pictures here. just to make sure, I double checked your account and when checking into your account, I see that you need to update your email address as your email is bouncing emails sent by the site. so, when you come to the site you are notified of needing to update your email and then you need to contact me after you update so we do so on our end

    ultimately, if you do need to update your email you are not able to view attachments until updated and that is what the problems appears to be for you guys

    I lost a $2k/month accnt last week. So for June we lost close to $3500/month in accnts. I'm feeling it bad. I'm at the point of going back to the fire dept full time and cut grass/bushhogg on my days off.

    my tip is to know when to say 'no' as in 'no, thats beyond my expertise' or 'no'(i cant handle the workload of this project right now, if youre willing to wait a month or so, i can do it'
    another tip, dont let the client dictate your price.
    another one...mention that you have a 'minimum'...'my minimum to spray weeds is 30, or my minimum to fertilize is 30...minimum to cut is 20...maintain a minimum
    I believe we should all work together collectively to raise our own prices. Only way to do this is to have a minimum
