  1. Hi Dequelo, I'm fine but is the rumor true? Be well, Tio

    It's all good. Speaking of principles, I think you'll get a big laugh out of this, hah! http://www.rollitup.org/advanced-marijuana...tml#post3721870

    Hi Dequelo, no problem with the edit, you have a job to do, a sense of corporate loyalty and that is to Sannie and company. I have my principles, and I guess you have yours. Have a nice day, UB

    I can't believe folks would buy from seedbanks in this day and age. Cross your own mutts. There is no honor in the cannabis biz. Crap is king.
  7. Howdy to all you lurkers in lurking land. We hit 7F Saturday morning. I thought I'd never finish covering and then uncovering stuff. Global warming my ass......
  8. 21F, it's damn cold and with the latest arctic blast coming, we're going alot lower! "Chill out" takes on a new meaning for us Texans. Stay toasty, UB
  9. Howdy! Guess I need to rent that one as I like the screwball comedies, Laurel and Hardy stuff. Speaking of musicals, we watched the Sound of Music the other night. I really enjoyed it. That was some great acting, good story line, beautiful music. The Wedding Crashers is pretty damn funny too.
  10. Guess it would have been fittin' to mentioned one that Brick Top recommended to me - The Hangover. Anyone seen it? It's supposed to hilarious. Yeah, "What about Bob" is a gut buster. I'm off to meet my neighbor's Clydesdales horsies, so it's time to make like a patty and hit the trail. Make it a great day, UB
  11. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! Here's wishing it was fun, and safe. Ours was uneventful with the usual NY flair - finger food like dried smoked sausage slices, cheeses, cocktail shrimp, crackers, champagne, etc. Re-watched a really funny movie, Wild Hogs. If you haven't seen it, you must. Great actors, great humor, and Peter Fonda makes a cameo performance in the end. Hit the hay about 11:00 p.m. Anyhoo, happy smokes and make 2010 a great year. Here's hoping we've reached the bottom regarding the dreadful financial situation of 2009! Keep the faith traveler. If you only knew how many times my ass has been kicked by mother nature the last 4 years!!!!! I'm still standing and the new business is gonna be huge! Glad to hear buddy and all are doing well Dequelo. If anyone wants to get lurk or post in some hot and heavy growing stuff, drop in and say "hey". The discussion on "lollipopping" is hilarious, as I do the usual.....caning paradigm addicted noobies' butts. http://www.rollitup.org/advanced-marijuana-cultivation/ Best, Uncle Ben
  12. Hi D, thanks for the Hola! We're doing fine, just chillin' for the winter. How's it going with you, your wife and such? How's Buddy? Still around, or did he fly the coop? cya ~
  13. Ahhhhhhhhh, in time for the holidays! Here's hoping things turn around for him! Tio
  14. Pssssttttt, where is everyone? Howdy from Tejas! Wanna share this ditty that really hits home about the state of the U.S. Economy regarding job losses, etc. Guess who's to blame? (no, it's not the businessman outsourcing jobs). Make it a great day, Tio ===================================================================== BUSINESS OFFER I'd like to make you a business offer. Seriously. This is a real offer. In fact, you really can't turn me down, as you'll come to understand in a moment... Here's the deal. You're going to start a business or expand the one you've got now. It doesn't really matter what you do or what you're going to do. I'll partner with you no matter what business you're in – as long as it's legal. But I can't give you any capital – you have to come up with that on your own. I won't give you any labor – that's definitely up to you. What I will do, however, is demand you follow all sorts of rules about what products and services you can offer, how much (and how often) you pay your employees, and where and when you're allowed to operate your business. That's my role in the affair: to tell you what to do. Now in return for my rules, I'm going to take roughly half of whatever you make in the business, each year. Half seems fair, doesn't it? I think so. Of course, that's half of your profits. You're also going to have to pay me about 12% of whatever you decide to pay your employees because you've got to cover my expenses for promulgating all of the rules about who you can employ, when, where, and how. Come on, you're my partner. It's only "fair." Now... after you've put your hard-earned savings at risk to start this business and after you've worked hard at it for a few decades (paying me my 50% or a bit more along the way each year), you might decide you'd like to cash out – to finally live the good life. Whether or not this is "fair" – some people never can afford to retire – is a different argument. As your partner, I'm happy for you to sell whenever you'd like... because our agreement says, if you sell, you have to pay me an additional 20% of whatever the capitalized value of the business is at that time. I know... I know... you put up all the original capital. You took all the risks. You put in all of the labor. That's all true. But I've done my part, too. I've collected 50% of the profits each year. And I've always come up with more rules for you to follow each year. Therefore, I deserve another, final 20% slice of the business. Oh... and one more thing... Even after you've sold the business and paid all of my fees... I'd recommend buying lots of life insurance. You see, even after you've been retired for years, when you die, you'll have to pay me 50% of whatever your estate is worth. After all, I've got lots of partners and not all of them are as successful as you and your family. We don't think it's "fair" for your kids to have such a big advantage. But if you buy enough life insurance, you can finance this expense for your children. All in all, if you're a very successful entrepreneur... if you're one of the rare, lucky, and hard-working people who can create a new company, employ lots of people, and satisfy the public... you'll end up paying me more than 75% of your income over your life. Thanks so much. I'm sure you'll think my offer is reasonable and happily partner with me... but it doesn't really matter how you feel about it because if you ever try to stiff me – or cheat me on any of my fees or rules – I'll break down your door in the middle of the night, threaten you and your family with heavy, automatic weapons, and throw you in jail. That's how civil society is supposed to work, right? That's the offer Amerika gives its entrepreneurs. And the idiots in Washington wonder why there are no new jobs.
