    Talking South Florida--the land of milk and honey

    went on vacation last week down to

    Miami and the Ft Lauderdale area........took the wife and kids

    caught a shark , ect ect..... had a good time all in all....

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    theone thing I was impressed with.....THE MONEY......


    I have never seen so many 60+ million dollar houses with
    20+ million dollar yachts sitting docked in front of them in my life....


    most of the people that actually live down in Ft Lughterdale are
    there to just maintain these "winter homes" for the billionairres
    to fly in every so often to play for a week or two...

    and some actually stay on the properties
    the 60+ mil homes are actually vacant probably 11 months out
    of the year and the 20+ mil boats just sit like good little toys
    begging to be palyed with...

    its actually almost obscene .........



    and its very, very tempting to consider moveing down there some day
    and starting up another plumbing business or whatever....
    their is certanly plenty of work to do...


    So does ayone have any experience with plumbing
    in south florida here??

    tough to get a liscence??

    Talking you got to retire somewhere--someday...

    flat rate plumbers probably dont get any complaints

    down there in Miami........like they do in the real world.....

    I am pretty sure they could not afford the life
    sylte I am talking about either.

    Mark, When do you want to go??? I'm ready anytime you are. We can work something out I'm sure. Lets find an empty mansion and start working out of it.

    We can call it Bill Gates Plumbing. The name recognition will get us lots of buisness.

    Talking just having a small post vacation depression...

    I will get over it all in a few days.....


    I have got to get back into the groove.......

    you know...... argueing with piss poor customers over the cost of

    serviceing their toilets , or cleaning drains ect...ect....

    chaseing down deliquent bills for $90 bucks..




    but after being down there with literally 20 milllion dollar boats
    sitting all over the place its a very tempting notion......


    getting a plumbing masters liscense and going into service business.

    I doubt it can be too much trouble to look into.........



    The funny thing is ,
    I bet you got to chase them down to get paid $90 bucks too......

    aint life grand!!

    You would have to speak Spanish, Mexican, and Cuban to get by.
