Our Annual California Round Table is almost booked !!!!

It is hard to believe that this is actually transpiring. To think that the mind works in such manners boggles the cranium.

Must have taken a lot of thought for a dumb fireman to come up with such a line. Jim, the ways of california and the mannerisms (yes another bigger word) of your culture don't go over so well with the so called lower class southerners. I would advise a quick apology for the condescending (slightly larger than the previous large word) approach you take to others. Just because we don't gloat about 24Cents per sq.ft then complain about a competitor having a better and faster way of processing gray water at a much lower cost to the customer doesn't mean we cannot rent a little boat and sail in blue waters. Most of us just don't care about such things. We'd rather spend our (spelling corrected) $$$ on trucks and tractors along with catfish food and hay for our goats to lay on.

Maybe just maybe I can come up with the 275 and a 99 dollar air fare (one way) and go one the Big boat! I will bet I can get someone to pay my airfare back home if I irritate them enough!

I can wash a home and a driveway and I will be set for the trip, put some bologna and white bread in a cooler with some potted meat and smoked sausage and a few slim jims (no pun intended) and I will be set.

...This one is too easy.

Maybe I will do a San Diego roundtable. One of my very good friends is one of the premier environmental contractors in the country. His business is large enough that his 60 subways and hundreds of gas stations are a side business to him. Maybe I could get him to take some people on his 45 foot personal sailboat, and talk a bit on the environmental side, and how to grow a business. I have been out on it before many times, and for him, any excuse will do.

I think that is a GREAT idea Scott. I have seen you talk about him before many of times. Sounds like a true friend. You should offer the Yacht thing on the environmental side of things. Make it a UCLA sport theme. With him explaining how to grow a business to work less and make more money is what everybody wants in life.

Every year we have a college theme by way of Stanford. Great turn outs. We sometimes have a speaker for the Government address the issues for environmental side of Garage Cleaning. Work hard with Education being the key.

Since you have the ability to accomplish this as you described above, This would be an event the help others achieve some of the knowledge you have in regards to the EPA and filtration.

It is a great idea. You should put it together.

I don't normally read these threads. All I am going to say is, let's all watch our tone here. Those who felt insulted, rise above it, and don't let it get to you. It's not worth getting your panties in a wad over it.

I have spent my fair share of time on a yacht. My dad owned a 33 footer when I was a young teen for a period of time. They are nice. But then, it's also fun to stand on the side of a mountain and look at a breathtaking view. Neither is any better than the other. Life is full of wonderful experiences of all kinds.

ahhhhhh, Hog jowls are actually "Pig Cheeks"

Ham hocks are good too!

200px-Ham_hock_2.jpg

The ham hock or hough is the joint between the tibia/fibula and the metatarsals of the foot, where the foot was attached to the hog's leg. It is the portion of the leg that is neither part of the ham proper nor the foot or ankle, but rather the extreme shank end of the leg bone and the associated skin, fat, tendons, and muscle. This piece generally consists of too much skin and gristle to be palatable on its own, so it is usually cooked with greens and other vegetables in order to give them additional flavor (generally that of pork fat and smoke), although the meat from particularly meaty hocks may be removed and served.

I have always wondered, if the boat is going sideways like that it doesnt look to comfortable. Should I sit on the otherside to even her out?

JIm , have a good party roundtable what ever you like to call it. Saling and watching a ball game for the entire day seems like a good time.

If anything people will know how Jim rolls.

Taking Clients is a very good tool, it builds loyalty.

We have a couple customers we do some extra things with. I more often dont have to rent boats because I get invited with them sail. The crazyist was heli sking...I didnt go.LOL

The next crazyist was a customer bought and old fish boat to convert to a cruiser.

I hope everyone that goes with you has a fun safe trip. Maybe Cleanertimes will cover the event. You should call them they likley will.

The Las Vegas Roundtable this year will take place aboard my new dingy (seen below on trials). The lucky 3 people chosen to attend will be treated to Hog Jowl and black eyed peas. In cooperation with the State of Nevada, California has set aside any budget cuts and is now working on dredging a path straight to Catalina from my home in Las Vegas just for this event!!!

The cost is $14.00. I will be paying the additional $4 billion for each lucky attendee. (It's a tax writeoff)

As I was unable to secure tickets to any sporting event, I have arranged live whale mating events for your pleasure just west of Catalina.

You may take pictures, but please, no whistling, catcalls or 70's porn music humming - the whales are performing as a favor to NCE and we should respect them accordingly.

I had the pleasure of seeing whales the last time we went on vacation. Nature is amazing. If you are not sure if you get seasick, get the patch in the store you can put behind your ear. I have never had a problem, but I have known some who did. You won't be on the ship long enough to develop sea legs. And don't forget the sunscreen....

Hilda is an accountant and will be happy to answer your questions about potential write offs.

Russ, I just got a call from the Peta people. It appears that pollution runoff from southern California (they don't have the high tech reclaim present in Northern California) has caused a lull in the *** drive of the whale population. They are now asking for whale "fluffers" to be added to the contract. Is there anyone you know who might have the proper equipment to "fluff" a whale?

Ok, from what I have seen and read, this thread has been hijacked.

Other would complain if their thread was taken down a direction it was not meant for and the same goes here.

Let's keep it on topic or don't post.

Any quarrels can be taken to where they are acceptable. It isn't here.

I will not remove the negative postings as they serve as an example for others who read it to understand who has the ability to be professional and respectful -vs- those who don't.

Rod!~
