Damon is feeling like an idiot today so let's let him enjoy our fellow idiocy. But I never have. NorCal doesn't get cold enough and my NV garage never drops below 50° Surly Jimmy has frozen his make believe Cleanco out there on the plains...
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/mat/5898642076.html I'm not picking on him but it makes me feel a bit depressed. I wonder what the percentage of cleaners are who go out this way.....unfortunately I bet a lot.
That might sound harsh from the way I worded that, but it isn't. I'll break it down. His business compared to mine is 10 times bigger in the cleaning industry, not just carpet cleaning. In fact, his carpet cleaning is very tiny, compared to the janitorial and pressure washing side. But it seems like it's his biggest headache, because he can't find good help.

Sadly, both the magazine and the website are ending this month. Its the virtual age my friends.. Any memories to share?
In Santa Cruz we may go through one or two quarts of a one part 'red dye" remover a year. Dye stains are so rare that "Sorry Mam, it's permanent" works fine. Now over here in NV, although the bulk of my work is for retired folks who don't drink KoolAid or eat Otter Pops, I'm attracting a certain element from my Facebook campaigns and if this military Housing contract goes through, I'm...
