    I plow for Britney Spears, but its just an "on call" thing because she didn't want to go with the season contract. Since her and Justin from NSYNC got together he usually does it. She calls when it is too heavy for him to shovel. Just joking.... I wish I plowed for her:)
    However I do landscape maintenance for an NHL er and some people who are the 46th (I think) richest people in Canada.

    Last year I plowed Bill Wirtz's home, he is the owner of the black hawks. Seen him once or twice, at home, reading his paper at the kitchen table. He needs to spend less money on his house and go after some better talent!

    Acorn I do alot of work for the Irvings. (great people) I'm very fortunate to come from a business family so I have alot of contacts.
    I consider my self a very small company and i like it that way. I see these guys on this site like Mr. Allin and i couldn't imagine doing the stuff he does. It's amazing....
    As far as the equipement and trucks go the key to that is money management. And being able to talk people into spending alot of money :D
    I also have other ventures i do on the side. It's hard to make a living off landscaping and snow removal now a days.

    I used to do work for the guy who owns Giant National Battery's. (Fork lift batteries) But he sold the place and moved to Canada? Whats up with everyone moving to Canada? I, like some others have said, work for people who think they are famous and world revolving around them. I do do some people who own so up scale buisiness's in the area. Some who come from "old money" and some who think they have money. As long as they pay I don't care.

    A couple years ago I put a some storm sewers in at the office building where Mario Lemeiux has his personal office. Of course that was before the building was occupied. Does that count?

    i plow the driveway for the drummer or guitar player (can't remember what he played) from 'foreigner.' he is a cool guy. he gave my partner a copy of his latest cd. it was a solo effort. i think he is on tour now in europe.

    my friend plows the drive for ellen burstyn (psycho). she is a really nice person. we installed her sprinkler system a few years ago.

    well, while we are talking celeberties, three houses down from ellen burstyn's home is the former home of rosie o'donnel.

    al pacino, william hurt and one of the baldwins live in the area. nyack, ny.

    The only rubber check I've ever gotten came from a so-called celebrity:mad: . I collected, though.

    Last year i plowed John Valby's (doctor dirty) house. I think i now have his whole collection of tapes. A 1 mile long driveway with a circle and a ton of trees. I used 50-60 stakes to mark it out.

    In the past i did some for the Sabres.

    Hey noclevername,

    Actually I used to live in VT. about 20 min. from canadian border. My father is a U.S. Border Patrol Agent. I went to Montreal about 4 yrs ago and as soon as they found out u were american, they were rude to you. (us) BUT I heard that people are like that only in Montreal, so I won't hold it against u...lol. But I do miss it up there, so much snow, I was too short and had no licence then, aw well.
