I have only been a member of LS for about 6 months or so. I have spent dozens of hours reading the replies from people who I recognize as being real authorities and professionals in the lawn care and landscaping busines. People like LawnGodFather, 65Hoss, JimLewis, 1GrnLwn, Matthew, Kirby, Papps, Paul, and a host of others. Now, what troubles me is when these gentlemen offer their free expertise, business savvy, and knowledge with the rest of us newcomers, there is always someone out there who thinks they are smarter than them. And then (are you ready for this?), they want to argue with them over something they probably know nothing or very little about. Well, Hellooooooooooooooo, these guys have forgotten more than most us know. At least for the present. When is the majority of us going to recognize these people are here to help, guide, and make us successful? I'm sorry...I'm too tired of beginners and novices arguing wth the real pros. I read it daily in the threads and replies. I understand there are many different regions in this country and elsewhere. But come on, give EVERYONE a break. You get a whole lot more out of listening, than you do out of talking. Listen to these pros, stop trying to be them until you're as good or better as one of them. I like their help in their responses...I'll be damned if only one of them gets mad enough to not respond anymore...because some beginner has ticked them off. Enuff already. my 2 cents.
