    Thumbs down I'm not working

    I 'm not. Last winter I was getting 10-15 calls a week to go and weld pipe, and they where head hunting me like a bugger Real slow fall and the winter
    doesnt seem to be going any better. You use to be able to play it by ear but
    this past year was real odd There is work, lots of general
    welding all over Calgary but no 30G's a month kind of stuff more like enough
    to make bills and have some spending money. Late 2006 for me was my worst
    in all of my 7 years as a welder

    rig welders are like wheelbarrows hard to push around
    and easily upset
    go flames go

    I still can't figure out Canadian country music but when I was in the service in Bosnia I used the port-a-potty next to Paul Brandt (he was in the next port-a-potty...just to clarify) We had a Canadian apache pilot in our unit for about 2 years... great guy

    A lot of people don't advertise in the Yellow Pages. For years, I didn't either, until buying the portable rig.

    Most of my Yellow Pages calls start around 5:00 p.m., when most every shop within 50 miles stops answering the phone. I like working after 5:00, time and a half means $120/hour. Most of these calls are get me dones. Not familiar with that term? They rarely care about the cost, as long as you can get them done & back on the road, or back in business.

    If you don't have a Yellow Pages ad, you'll probably miss this type of business. Funny thing is that the ads have always paid for themselves with the first or second job - after that, they're free for the next twelve months

    You can certainly leave business cards at truck stops, rest areas, DOT weigh stations, farm implement dealers, etc. Sometimes they work. For me, the Yellow Pages works 24/7/365.
