We had a year's worth of treatment paid for by our builder. The same company is offering us $32/application.
I was satisfied with what they did last year (no weeds and my lawn did well for the most part, some thin areas). I doubt I can beat this price unless I go with some unlicensed dude, but a...

We are having a guy rip up the carpet on our stairs (15 steps). There is pine underneath and the original idea was to finish/sand the pine.
This morning, he told my wife that he could put oak on top for an additional $300. He says it looks better and is less likely to get damaged. He did my neigh...

There was an exchange between him and a Longhorn DB where the DB was jawing with him as he tried to coach him up.
Then, when Swoopes/Gray fumble into their own end zone and give Arkya TD, just looking at the coaches and the players on the sideline, they just kinda had this "oh well" look.
