    Customer wants solution to his pile of wood problem

    Wife and I did a pig roast PNG style for our church. The river rocks in the fire pit turned a sort of translucent white towards the end of the burn.

    Why do a down payment on bigger jobs?

    A deposit, or "Ernest Money". is a good way to mitigate those clients who are simply price shopping, and are prone to cancel if they find a cheaper price, messing with your schedule. Having said that, I never ask for a deposit if the job is under 1000.

    red cedar tree fungus

    Yes, I would say that the Cedar is in the heavy shade under mature hardwoods, but not with a congested branch structure. It is a sort of run of the mill red cedar that only my sister seems to have much regard for (she loves cedars). There is a pear tree about 100' away. She is concerned also...
