We have had a ton of trouble finding home contractors that will actually return phone calls. You would think that the economic conditions would be forcing people to actually look for work, versus me having to basically hound someone into calling me back.
On the other hand, we were fortunate enough to get hooked up with a great Birmingham, AL landscaping company. Schroeter’s Lanscaping was literally a God send. They jumped right in and built our retaining wall to my exact specifications. We now have a full back yard, thanks to the new wall.
In the near future, probably tomorrow, I’ll start shaping the new back yard area and hopefully Schroeter’s will be able to start on our chain link fence for the dog pen on Tuesday (fingers crossed).
I went out Falkville, AL last weekend just as a spectator for their hill climb race. There was a large bounty ($800) on one of the hills there. One driver just couldn’t resist giving it a shot. Follow the link below to see an amazing save and a couple of fires. Be sure to watch all the way to the end to see the action.

I was lucky enough to get to attend the 2010 King of the Hammers race in Southern California. I posted all of the pictures on the Octane site. Please check them out if you’re interested.

I’m in Las Vegas for the 2009 SEMA show. So far, I have greatly enjoyed the show and the trip.
