    Well, ever sence GM disclosed bankruptcy the other day I went from steady slow to steady nothin. I don't think the government is helping much either, they have everyone so scared that instead of a puckered up arsehole they've decided to put plugs in I think.
    As for the weather its definatly not helping either. Hoping the weather turns hot and fast.
    17 years in business and I've never seen June so slow.

    We really need some 90-95 degree weather for 2 weeks striaght. lets make these machines work hard under a real load. If summer doesn't kick in soon i wonder how many companies around here will be closing there doors. I usually stay busy doing Pm work all year round renewing peoples contracts. Now its just preseason contract renewal. common god of heat make us sweat. Instead the forcast for the rest of the week rainy and cloudy.
