i don't mean any disrespect to the forum and the people on it because i do like it here but if i am not mistaken i think andrew had a pretty full plate with getting married and having his house getting flooded as well as trying to start a business.
anyone of the above scenarios can be a life altering experience for most people and even if he is having trouble with the business most people who start one have high hopes and dreams and are slightly blinded by the high hopes of success.
it is more difficult today to start a business then it has ever been with the state of our economy and the exuberant costs involved in running one.

when i started my business 23 years ago it was tough but there was also only half the landscapers that there is today as well as things like equipment, fuel, insurance and regulations were also cheaper and to some degree we do not get much more money for our services today as we did 23 years ago.

many people start businesses today and fail but that has been happening since the beginning of time and i don't think it is anything to take lightly or mock someone for or to take pleasure in when to some degree we are all a few bad chain of events away from failure.

as i said i don't know what the deal is and i am not pointing fingers either, i am just saying, that's all.

i am sorry if you took my reply as if i was singling you out because that is not what i was doing.
i was just simply adding my two cents into why he might not be posting lately plus even though i quoted your post my reply was not based on your post only it was based on all the replies.

i know we had other threads on "what happened to" with others here like weekend warrior that seemed to burn his bridges but my memory of andrew was that he was a OK dude and it seemed it was heading in the direction of the others.

once again i am sorry for the misunderstanding that you might have thought i was pointing fingers at you or anyone for that matter because that is not what i was doing.
i was just trying to throw some suggestions as to why he has not been here lately with some further clarification and i don't think anything i said was that bad to where you or anyone should have taken offense to it.
