    That is the Sigma Kappa house (snakey Ks). When I was in college, their house was stunning inside.... As fancy as any house I have ever been in...

    Grant has strong interpersonal skills that enable people to look past his personal challenges of not being able to legally drive.
    He promotes the superior American way and technology of cleaning carpets in his marketing..

    Can you imagine how successful he would be if he promoted the powerful, high-tech Canadian way.

    I don't know about that. It seems that Butler was influenced by Cleanco. Aside from Bill Bane, true PTO truck mounts were being designed here in the early 70's.

    You are correct... I forgot about that-- I cant recall if Grant meant USA or American.

    As my 7th grade history teacher said-- Canada, USA and Mexico are what make up North America.
    Citizens of USA should be called "United Statesians--
    Mexicans, Canadians and United Statesians are all American.
    oddly This Teacher's idea never caught on nationally :oldrolleyes:

    1947 a company in Santa Fe Springs, California called Truman Doyle used a positive displacement blower in a portable machine to clean wall to wall carpets on site. Apparantly, they did not sell their equipment outside their own company.

    Update. When he came face to face with reality, he bought a 2011 Chevy Savanah with a Prochem apex in it. 175,000 k and 4500 hours. $24,000. He gave up on the downtown and will concentrate on the suburbs. Nice looking van and very clean, well maintained unit that has been locally maintained by our Prochem disty since new.
