    Just got the call today for another lot. It's a bank and I all ready do the cutting and landscaping for a different branch but not the plowing. They said I was the second highest bidder on it but they gave it to me. So now I have a 2 yr contract on this for landscaping and plowing. And 3 yr for landscaping on the other. They also said I'm first on the call list if the other company can't handle the 3rd location. I asked why they are going with me if I'm one of the highest. REPUTATION !

    Funny, I didn't see anything about GV in the $700+billion bail-out plan!!! Geuss that was one of those "under-the-table" deals!!!

    In all seriousness, congrats GV!! It feels good when people actually make the choice based on Reputation instaed of the almighty $$. Keep up the good work & I expect to see your name in next years "top 100"!!
