No a Vinyl Window Manufacturer....

Good Deals?? I used to.... Got out of the industry in 98, tried my best to NOT get back in... Hard to do at 49... been in it since 76..

Recently went to work for a family owned corp.. They are kinda funny people.. A couple of people who I worked with for 10 years at a competitor, went to work here,( how I got contacted) and we are trying our best to drop kick their rears into the future... Just got some windows for a friend. He paid about what Home Depot charges, which is NOT a good deal... My owners think if we can BONE someone occasionally they are doing well.. They just don't get it...

Like everything else, BIG company's are buying up the little ones.. I have been caught twice at other Window company's.. GREAT places until the new owners cut everyones pay and make it a crummy place place to work.. You think they would get the drift when everyone quits, but do they really care.....

I am a Life Insurance Specialist for the AAA Auto Club of Texas. And all who live in Ca,NM,Texas and upper New England if you don't have a membership in the AAA auto club get one because they have a rider you can put on your auto club membership that covers trailer brakedowns and RVs for like $23 a year. They also have auto,home and boat insurance. Ca and some of the other states have the boat ins. Texas doesn't yet but they are getting it. They offer a discount if you buy both auto and home from them. No I can't take your quote, I only do Life and Annuities. But if you live in Texas and are interested I can win some referral points by giving you name to the P&C people in Texas.:smile: Ahh there I am.

Unfortunately I have been too busy working on the boat this spring to use it. Nothing bad just pimpin out the MC. Just waiting to get the boat back from Summerset now. It should be done sometime this week. Looking forward to using it this summer with all the goodies that I put on it this spring. Have you been skiing much on the river this year?

Can you say GROUP BUY????? :D

I could always use another motorcycle, too bad I don't think too many Harley Dealerships are into the group discount thing. Besides what would we do all day long if we got banned from this site for organizing another group buy. I guess we could actually work, but who wants to do that?

I wish that were the case. I'm simply one of the grunts that still have to do the actual work to help keep it running.

They would say, "Do you know how much gas you will be going through?" I would come back telling them that for $75.00 in gas a weekend we have some great family time. I cannot take my family of 4 to the movies on a Friday night for that. If we do go and blow said $75.00, What are we going to do Sat and Sun.?

If I get to the point where I honestly care about the amount of gas I'll use in a weekend then I've probably got bigger problems to worry about. $75 for an evening (probably 4 hours) or the same money for up to 20 hours of water time with everyone close by? Not really a question for me.
