    I just checked eBay for "sold" lots of flatware. There were eight and a half pages worth sold today, 1/20. There is quite a market for flatware. I guess forks are in demand.:&

    I wouldn't consider $1,000,000,000 a trivial thing. Or a small thing. I don't play the lottery often but I can afford to spend twenty dollars for a very slim chance to will a bill. I don't expect...

    Do you have business cards? Hand a business card every time you bring their mail. And tell them you scrap. "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall.." :)

    I am a little bummed out about it. When I first pick up the exhaust systems I set them aside for a couple weeks until I had time to cut them up. I did that, scrapped them and a week later the guy...

    I am waiting for the guy to call me back. If he does not call, no hard feelings. My time is stretched pretty thin for the next few weeks anyway.

    I thought of that... Their forking is not a real forklift. It's one of those you stand behind and ride on. A battery powered one. A motorized pallet jack.

    My forklift cannot drive on dirt (it sinks and the tires just spin), pavement only, the parking lot where the loading dock is dirt. Their forklift cannot leave the building. There are only stairs...
