  2. Hny

    Just wishing my old friends here and all you newer PWers a very prosperous New Year. Now if one of you lives in ABQ (Albuquerque, NM) come wash my driveway for FREE... Darn red salt rock the city puts down on icy roads is all over one part of our driveway.
  3. Hope all are safe

    To all of you who are in hurricane Irene's path, hope you're all safe and no damage is done to your homes and businesses. On the bright side just think of all the work you guys are going to be able to line up, concrete cleaning, deck cleaning and more. Just be safe, stay warm and look out for each other, this is a brotherhood of pressure washers and in times of need some not hit might have extra items they are willing to send to you who lost things.
  4. Hi Beth, long time I no come here and post but I notice my web site link does not work, not sure if I entered it correctly or not. Would you please fix it and also I cannot get into "my controls" either.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, Rod and the kids.

  5. Not sure if Krispy Kreme is still around in but not all of us go ape over them, I personally found nothing about them to be any different then any other fried donut, oily and loaded with calories. Now that said if you were to bring them donuts make sure the management post that so they all know where to go for them. What about coffee and tea?
  6. WOW how you guys hate seniors, wait till you reach 55 plus and become one of them asking the younger group how much, then say that's a lot of money. Remember some of them, not all but some might not be wealthy, some might have taken early retirement and have less income to spend or became disabled etc. Might I suggest this, if you don't want to deal with seniors, yes in many states 55 is considered a senior just polity decline saying you don't really do mobil homes. Or go to the park management and offer a good price if say 5 or 10 are willing to sign up at one time and this is very important, have a price list printed stating what is included. Then on that same list what is extra and the cost per item. Now if you get 5 or more signed up, hopefully you have some sort of written agreement they sign and once you are done they say something like would you just rinse off this or that you can chose to do it free or explain that is extra paid in advance. But don't knock all seniors as you will be one someday and I am speaking from experience, I am 68 but I don't chisel that way, I have nicer ways to get discounts. LOL
  7. Happy Birthday Queen Beth

    An invite to ABQ, NM where we have lots of sunny weather, wind, some rain and thunderstorms and few pressure washers! Beth I know I posted early, better early then late! Do you and Rod still disco dance or is Rod getting to OLD for it?
  8. Happy Birthday Queen Beth

    Beth Remy and I wish you a very Happy Birthday.
  9. Take The Test - See How You Do ?

    I got them all! If only it would open I can take the test and be more honest. How about the direct link or www. ?
  10. Do we really care about the cost of gas?

    This is not in any way an attack on anyone here but I am going to say what I have to say. Ken Fenner, I have seen your post over time here, I don't know you personally but I do know Beth and Rod personally, they are friends of mine even though we are on opposite sides of the USA. Beth is not one to knock others, she has been known to go out of her way to help people even one or two she might not even like, Rod has been known to do that too but she is not known to inject comments about others families in a negative way here. I personally found your remarks more flame then a nice reply. I also think you know well what she meant but took it the wrong way. I say lighten up, relax some, take what she and others say not as competitors but as friends who want to help others in the industry. Excluding low ballers and week-end warriors. DUH is not a negative word the way Beth used it. Surely you have used too. Now go ahead and pounce on me but leave the lady out of it.
  11. I need to build something

    Scott I might consider kicking in a few bucks as a partner so you can up your cost to design, build and copyright and sell the idea for a few dollars more.
  12. Do we really care about the cost of gas?

    Carlos I am fine, enjoying life here and burning my guts out with the SPICY food which I DON'T care for since it is truly Mexican spicy! I would say Hawaii cost a lot more since the only way to get it there is by floating tankers. Remember you’re in the affluent part of CA where everything cost more but also where the greatest wines are grown. Going to become a bionic man in one week with total knee replacement, that way I can keep up with you younger guys again! By the way are you trying to look like Sly Stallone in your picture here?
  13. Need Help With New Vehicle Decision!!!

    A WHAT? Tonka toy? What kind of payload can it pull, can it pull a 14,000 trailer with all equipment plus extras? How about long uphill in 100 plus temp? You need to consider the big picture when buying a truck, I would not think a Tundra can haul that kind of payload. Brakes, heavy duty or standard brakes? Dodge F250 or 350 diesel would be a good choice or the compatible Ford. Biggest difference between Ford and Doge is mileage and power. Still a diesel requires so much less service.
  14. Do we really care about the cost of gas?

    Carlos I told you before move to NM, diesel here tops off right now at around $4.35 down to $3.89. I buy from TCH, they own the Flying J truck stops. Still cost vary depending on the location between here on Covina, CA. We all know the full cost to wash a vehicle, house, clean concrete etc. is much more then our labor, fuel and chemicals, insurance and all other things required to make a fair profit and when competition keeps their cost low in this day of raising rates it is going to be harder to compete. Not being in the business anymore I wonder if these higher fuel rates will slow down those week-end warriors, low ballers and newbies to the industry? I would hope so then all of you that have been around a few years will increase your business gaining those accounts. Has anyone done a post with just the cost of fuel state by state here? no posting other then cost of regular and diesel.
  15. Subject: Ostrich

    A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him, and the waitress asks them for their orders. The man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke," and she turns to the ostrich and asks, "What's yours?" "I'll have the same," says the ostrich. A short time later the waitress returns with the order. "That will be $9.40 please," she says, and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment. The next day, the man and the ostrich come again, and the man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke." The ostrich says, "I'll have the same." Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change. This becomes routine until the two enter again, and the waitress says, You both want the usual?" "No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad," says the man. "Same," says the ostrich. Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, "That will be $32.62." Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table. The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. "Excuse me sir but how do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?" "Well" says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp and when I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there." "That's brilliant," says the waitress. "Most people would ask for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!" "That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man. The waitress asks, "What's with the ostrich?" The man sighs, pauses and answers, "My second wish was for a tall chick with a big butt and long legs, who agrees with everything I say."
