    Wow... I hadn't even noticed.

    I haven't been on too much lately really. I missed this thread by a couple of days. I just tripped across it buried down on page #4 looking for topics to post in... insomnia strikes again tonight...

    I sure hope I have helped a lot of people by being able to network here.
    I try to do what I can when I can to give back to the green industry, and I hope I've given a lot back over the years because I sure have reaped a lot.

    I wish somehow these posts were a drop in the hat to the information I've given to customers and the general public over the years (care, cultural and maintenace practices). I've spent a lot more years out there than I have on here....

    I'm a firm believer that my investment in time and sharing here is an investment in my own business... both for me and for others.

    In this respect, I tend to look at this sort of thing a lot different than some people do. I believe anything I can do, say or point out to help fellow LCO's to step up and even far exceed me is giving back to my industry, bettering it, and benefiting me also over the long haul.

    I look at it like this.... I do not believe too many of us will not honestly agree that the lower tier operators are one of this industry's greatest detriments.... and I do not believe that too many of would disagree that they are the MAJORITY and the rest of the industry is in the minority.... So I look at it as for every one any of us can help advance another rung up the ladder helps towards bettering that ratio, and is good for the industry as a whole.

    I do not envy others, and I am glad in their success. I also do not envy those who are able to exceed me in this business and I am happy for them as long as they arrive there honestly and morally. If someone can take this business or any other and wring more profit out of it that me, then I'm thrilled for them.

    I'd even much rather help a competitor to be able to come up and actually compete with me on a level playing field... and hopefully have more allies, than I would to watch a guy work his arse off for nothing... have him envy me, come in on me at knee level and try to clip me down to his level so he can cut my throat.

    Wonderful job my friend, you have helped a tremendous amount of people including myself.

    Discussions and debates are always good for the general public, until it comes to lying politicians.

    Then you said, "But I looked and thats less than 6 a day".

    Yea, sometimes we want to talk before we get our foot cleared from our mouth. You just did get yours out before you commented, were you not lucky?
