I finally got the trim in the mail. Went back installed the track, laid last row of tile and then hammered in the pvc trim. The track was straight aluminum so to get it to curve I had to cut V shapes on the back side all down the curve section to get the track to bend to the curve. The actual trim was easy to hammer in because its flexible. I myself would have got a wood finished trim but the customer wanted black.

Advice? New company name

My DBA is up in October so I want to change my company name for the new DBA. When the economy was good Painting in the name would get us alot of painting work(which we wanted because it is fast and easy money), but with the economy destroyed and the fact it is not going to improve most people try the painting themselves. So for more work that is not painting I need to change the name. I was thinking Top Value Construction? I would like to keep top value in the name and limit it to only one more word for website and add, and signage purposes. I have until Oct to change all the car signs, websites, business cards, estimate forms, logos, adds, paperwork, etc. So give me your thoughts. We are builders and do every kind of skilled trade service.I might take the top ideas and make a poll out of it. In return a picture with advice.

Not done yet

I did not take pics of the floor yet because the customer decided to use a curved floor so I had to order a flexible floor transition (shown in pic). I'll have to go back once I get it and install the transition and the rest of floor to meet it. Then Ill have pics. Shipping said 1-5 days but its a special order item not stocked so it could be 1-3 weeks:(

Americans easily distracted.

Lets see poorly shooped birth certificate, economy and dollar failing, gas at record high, economy on verge of collapse, starting election campaign, looks a little fishy to me. No proof or evidence of his death. no proof or evidence that he was even involved in attacks 10 years ago and even if he is dead probably killed 10 years ago. What a timely release of info. Im sick of all this bullshit they try to feed us here and it boggles my mind that anyone could believe this shit! Our government are like magicians and U.S. citizens are too dumb to follow the hands during the tricks.
