    Everyone loves the smooth talking Ex-president but Trump is bad. Lol!! What a joke. I prefer an absolute ass and global train wreck to the smooth talking a$$ f#cking we got from Obama. The just go without and negotiate it down technique only works if you don't have assets. That is why I can't go that route anyhoo....

    Being self employed, my year was peaks and valleys. Some months like "I'm rich, what color should my Ferarri be?" others, "I don't know how we'll pay the rent or why my old lady even talks to me?" I expect a repeat - Lol!

    So anyone know if recreational exists at dispensaries yet? Medical doesn't interest me. I won't be in town long enough to get a California DL and doctor visit. Is there the same recreational there now as in Colorado or Washington? The interwebs have conflicting infos. :cry:

    Lots of yapping here... So anyone been into a recreational shop and purchase in Cali yet?? I will be there in 4 weeks and looking forward to shopping. I was so stoked to hear it was legal when I visited in Feb 2017 just to find out it was legalized but recreational sales were not happening until 2018. Pretty much the same story when I went to Boston. Seattle and Denver... those were good times. Even in Texas is is opening up. Houston allows 4 oz a a ticketable offence. Austin, 2 oz and under is ticketable. There are medical grows near where I live in Texas. It is switching for sure. The big win for republicans here is to not oppose it. I doubt they will in 2020. Long live the tea-pot party!

    I'm with Butch. It wasn't completely detached. Butch's is detached at the top where there are 2 attachment points. Mine detached at the bottom where there is only one attachment. Frig that!!! I was mostly surprised that the bicep rolls the forearm way more than it serves to curl

    A simple truck. Lol lol lol! * Trucks went the way of the Harley Davidson. Rides made famous by the rank, tough, work with your hands, salt of the earth types. Now they cost $50-$70K...... WTF??? Harley is heading for the hurt locker because they forgot their base. It used to be the chosen toy of middle age dudes but they rode that into being the high end toy of retiring folks who are now aged out and no longer buying bikes. They made it ok to take your trailer to bike week.....:lol: Now the newer generation of middle age dudes is choosing other ways of taking out their middle age frustrations than the classic, "Let's get a Harley and jump a mountain of cocaine with a stripper on the back..." Lucky for strippers and cocaine that some things never go out of style. Chocolate and peanut butter... Pick-ups went from being the tool of the cowboy and blue collar man to being 1 ton, 4x4 grocery trucks with leather, power windows, and a sun roof. Could I please just get a 1 ton, roll up windows, manual locks, and have it cost less than a small fortune? *disregard the comments of this poster as he drives a beat up, old diesel with 300K miles*

    Just saw this. Haney, I just looked at your link, that is Rick out of the ARS in Temple. I deal with him on the vendor side, covering the equipment he uses for TOC, C, N, and metals analysis. Hit me offline (or on) if you have any questions on the analytical techniques employed. Ward lab does great work. So does Agvise and Servitech.

    Being scarce is always good. One of the big barrier to value add is the whole argument of trees are an asset and investment in the future goes out the window fast in the USA at times. A big challenge is the cold hard fact that most customers don't differentiate between a cottonwood and an oak. That combined with the fact that the average time a house is owned in the USA is 6 yrs. It makes it really hard to sell value of continuum of care. I likely need another cup of coffee to wash away some of the cynicism, but most buyers are liars and most customers are just looking for some way to take a shower without getting wet.

    I agree with Sean that deeper pockets may go more for value but will add that they only go for value if you make a value proposition. If you just shoot them a quote and run, you are a commodity. That is good if that is your model, but the value add has wider margins every time. Following up on quotes is an awesome way to make a value proposition. Ask who they are going with and why, etc. I rarely (if ever) did it in tree work but do it daily in capital equipment sales. Without a value proposition, they are left to turn everyone/product into a commodity. In capital equipment sales, when I get an email for a quote request, I will not quote them unless they answer their phone (or I already know them). This is because once you give them all the info they need to jump to their own conclusions, they have no need to pick up the phone or let you visit to make a value proposition. Next lesson...... How to Close ................... lol
