Hi guys,

I've never seen a web site like this in my life. Really cool! I'm a fence installer and with no warning I was laid off end of August. Scary! The industry is dead. I got a job three weeks from now but in the mean time I'm going broke. I got a family so its getting nerve racking. Today I'm printing flyers to pass out offering my services to rake leaves. What do I charge. I'll handle everything except the removal. They can put it on the street and the town will take' em. Any advice cause I want to get going opn this ASAP. I ts scary for those of us in construction these days. I'm trying to launch off a web biz right now. Slow start but I' m determined!

Check' em out below and let me know what you think. Let me know how the landscaping industry is holding up too. I got to do something different come next season. I live in Whitman, Ma if any of you guys are in the area. Thanx everyone, Jimmy
