It's Baaack!

Pool Season, that is.

I Don't Need a Website

Back in the day if you were to ask a business owner why they were putting an ad in The Yellow Pages, the typical response one might get is “because all of my competitors are so why shouldn’t I?”

Salt Pool Blamed for Plaster Cracking and Nodules

When a new white quartz pool in San Diego developed numerous shrinkage cracks and very rough and sharp calcium nodules everywhere, the plasterer drained the pool and sanded it, charging the pool owner one thousand dollars for the work.
