Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Nice work 44044!

Concrete work doesn't get done by itself... one needs to muscle it into submission.

You were smart to get an extra two guys. Live to see another day.

Mexican

Back in the early 70's I was working for the 'Walker/Moody, Co.' in Honolulu, HI, and we built the Primo Brewery over on Pearl Harbor across from Ford Island...as I recall it was five stories high and we installed antique but new brewing equipment that had been in storage in Mexico...for several years; the company even found the original craftsmen who had built it in Germany to put it all together...which they did; now, to the point...we had to use concrete pumper trucks to put the concrete where it was needed...and I confess...that was some hard work...couldn't even lift the hose end these days. (I think Primo may have gone out of business later but by then I had moved back to the mainland...on the complementary side, we had mostly PI laborers and all I can say is they can work...then & today!)

Good luck with the new deck.
