    So how's everyone doing? I am starting to get some interest in demo's, but not as much as I had hope. The landscape industry here is crying about the slowdown on many levels.

    Zero complaints here. September is one of the slower sales months as everyone heads out of our area and back to their "real lives". But this gives us a chance to breathe again, catch up on service work and take a bit of time off after the summer. It's an annual thing which I have come to appreciate.

    YTD over 2007 is WAY up.

    Time to book those last few installations in before the snow starts flying, then it is full bore on developing the LED distribution biz this coming winter.

    Christmas light closes are up from last year, and landscape lighting was nil from sept 1-now. luckily we start hanging Christmas lights on sept 15 or this month would be a dud.

    I've had an absolutely stellar September. YTD is still down over 07, but this month has given several NICE jobs. H&P show next week along with 20,000 mailers. Should be a good 4th quarter.

    I'm waiting for a couple of prospective clients to give me demo dates. It's like the earth is standing still.

    And this whole economy thing is cracking me up. It's like Y2K all over again. Time to go buy a bunch of shotgun shells and load the closet with canned pasta.

    Anyone remember the episode on Taxi where Rev Jim (Christopher Lloyd) had a pantry full of spaghettio's?

    I'm just glad I got through August. I guess it was because we are still in a drought out here in the hill country and nobody wanted to be outside at all. Well now that it is pretty pleasant here at night now ranging between 65 and 75 degrees at night more people are beginning to venture outside to enjoy the the outdoors. September picked up for me. Just yesterday the beginning of the month I closed on 3 lighting jobs. Yea hoo!!!
