if you need business, GO ON VACATION...it's bound to make your phone ring consistently, when you don't want that to happen....

LOL Michael - that just means we all should schedule more vacations!  Years ago - probably 20 years I cancelled a ski trip because I had so much going on.  Haven't done that ever again!

Uncanny how that appears to be true.

IT's 4 o'clock, time to close this open house. Three cars pull up.

Time to head for Key West, then that ad campaign gets traction.
