Default Greetings from the Bay area (CA)

Well, I used to post on this board about 2 years back when i lived in Oregon. I lost my email account, So i figured i would start over. I live in the Bay area, Ca. I work part time doing lawn care, General and Detailed landscaping, Debris removal and hardscape work. $250 a week is pretty good for working 10 hours right ?

Any other bay area folks around?

No one in Oregon has money, California is California. The climate is way different. The bay area is weird. No mountains or cascade lines, No major river's, The lakes are a joke.

People are nicer and more open minded though. I work in the 500k plus homes though, I make 800 a month now part time, I just picked up 3 clients last night.

Off-topic. Why does this forum scroll up for new postings? lol I am so used to scrolling down, I get confused when i am reading on here. Must just be VBulletin for ya
