    Happens every spring. We where out cleaning up one of our properties today and I found a piece of paper in a ziplock bag on the lawn, it was an estimate to "mow your lawn for $35.00 ". This particular lawn is just under one acre!!!! Unbelievable!

    Very promising press conference that just took place. Keep your heads up boys, as tough as it it.

    I assume you meant the earlier one with Trump? About hoping to get things moving by Easter.
    I can't imagine anything good coming from Trenton.

    Don't worry, Governor Murphy has our backs. Yup, we're all doomed.

    One day at a time, it's all coming down to the federal level for Jersey unfortunately since Murph' won't do jack **** for us.

    One good thing bucky has done. List of companies hiring NOW. I know some here may be in need and/or have had to or will need to make the tough decision of letting workers go.

    You can say that again. We are burning through work. We worked late last season ( till mid January) and there’s not much as far as cleanups this year. Phones dead too. I think Once things start growing though it’ll be a mad house

    After spending an hour or so disinfecting trucks & equipment this morning and getting the guys on the road I took a ride to both my current projects out of sheer boredom now I've been in the office for 2 hours. I only had about 15 minutes of work, but it's the only room my wife won't bother me in since she's bored out of her mind too

    I took a nap after coming home, and now I’m realizing how bad TV is during the day

    I am at the shop. I put on old movies instead of the radio. U-Tube is good for something. On another note, I do not think I have ever been this slow before.

    Flying through cleanups, especially with no traffic on the road. Phone rang once today, first time in a few days, so at least I know it still works

    anyone having luck finding hand sanitizer? I’ve got it in my trucks for the guys but they’re starting to run low. Probably only enough for a week tops and I know it’ll be hard to track down
