  1. I haven’t really made a lot of time to be on here since our son (who was born 2 months early) arrived. This real life miracle came into our lives on 8/30/2017, he is such a blessing, so happy and so full of life! Life for him hasn't always been this way, as he had a very tough start... He arrived weighing 3lb 9oz, 17 inches long, and was unable to breathe on his own...he literally fought for every breath. He was given Surfactant, this helped him to be able to breath the first few hours of his life, without it we don’t know what might’ve happened. March of Dimes donations/research helped in the development of it. With permission from a Mod.... I have never asked in the 13+ years I’ve been a member here for any type of donation, but this is so very close to my heart. You can follow the link to make a donation https://www.marchforbabies.org/Fundraising/Team?teamId=1405709&teamEventId=2912031&# and click donate to team. It doesn't matter to me how much..... anything will help further research so that someone who might not ever get the chance, can experience hearing mama & dada like we do now. There is a place to mark your donation 100% anonymous, so none of your info will be shared. Thank you so much. -Jason
  2. Thank you! Yes there’s so many options. It has done nothing but rain here since the snow ended. The plan is to build about 1K feet off the road so we need some dry weather. Hopefully we can get out there and start staking off where it will be soon!
  3. Thank you and yes I’ve spent the last 2 years trying to find the right property in the area where I wanted to be. During that time I searched the PVA and have been literally knocking on doors to see if anyone would sell. After being told no dozens of times, I finally got a yes! Picked up just under 50 acres of rolling farmland that had been in the family for 2 generations. As far as style and size, I’m not in a position to rival some of the amazing homes shared here, but we have found what we like. Making changes to fit our needs better....colors, room sizes, adding a detached garage and enclosing the open walkway from garage to house and so on. Here are a couple photos.
  4. Any updates here? Just purchased some land and want to build.. looking for inspiration/ideas...

Would it be possible to post a link in the general section Incase anyone wanted to donate? Everything goes straight to the charity. I’ve never asked in the 13+ years I’ve been a member here for any type of donation, it this is very close to my heart. If not, I understand. Thank you..... Jason
  6. Spec is on point! Congrats!

    I’m back…

    Welcome back, glad you are back!
  8. I knew it didn't come from you... I remember you laughing about the comment made by the seller at the time.
  9. Whaaaaat? I thought your Diablo had listed for sale by someone stating the nitrous system had never been used
  10. Congrats on reaching your goal! That Black/Silver combo is so menacing on that car....I love it!

  12. +1 on this. Stayed up wating the other night, couldn't turn it off.
  13. Beach house is a much better plan! At least if it consumes you 24/7 like a franchise, it's time much better spent
  14. ^^^THIS^^^ In the end, this is what it's all about.
  15. Some VERY good advice given already. I owned multiple (5) food franchise locations for several years. I bought them one at a time and they were in bad shape losing thousands a month for multiple reasons. I spent a couple years going through them, implementing new procedures to "make them right" as I called it. They all became profitable and I started selling them off. I worked my ass off 7 days a week at each location in order to accomplish this......no such thing as a 40 hour week.......... In the end did I have success, yes.... Do I consider myself lucky for having success....Yes! Did I learn a lot about business in general, what to do and what NOT to do....Yes! Was it worth it considering the ROI.......HELL NO! I'll never get back the time I spent...... My advice is this... If this is something you are deeply passionate about, like you get butterflies and shit every morning thinking about this being your career the rest of your life, then great! Go for it! but if you are going into a "franchise" thinking you are gonna have multiple locations, make all this money and stop by and check in on things in the next "few" years then stop now. Not trying to be a downer, just giving you my honest opinion based on my experience. Best of luck in whatever you decide!
  16. Garage and cars look Amazing! Congrats!
  17. You can't buy that kinda advertising..... It's sad that customer service is almost nonexistent to the point that when you do get it, it stops you in your tracks. Glad to hear it worked out and you got it home safe!
  18. That is the route I've always taken when dealing with an individual from either side of the transaction. Maybe I'm lucky, but I have never had an issue.
  19. Update. We went for our 20 week ultrasound and everything looks great! (Halfway there!!!) He is growing right on track with where he should be! So thankful that things are looking good with what we went through the last time. I apologize for not replying sooner....I just wanted to say Thank You to all of you who gave the advice I asked for and shared some of your own stories with me here and outside the forum. I really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to do so. I'm starting to feel some better about it (still scared shitless) but getting there. Thank you again for all the nice comments and advice.

    Chiron

    I'm not in a position to own a Chiron..........but that CGT is
  21. Scotty I agree with everything you mentioned about making them work for everything. I can honestly say I have worked for everything I have, because we never had anything left over after paying bills the whole time I was growing up. I knew guys in high school that had everything given to them (new cars, money, whatever) never had a job or worked through school. They never amounted to shit. A couple of them took over the family business, ran them into the ground in just a few years. Very sad really but like you mentioned they had no appreciation for it. I love the idea of that with the driving, that's one to remember for sure! I want him to learn as much as he can, try to do things, struggle with them, fail and try again. I don't know if that's the right thing or not, but it is how I learned and got to where I am. Thank you Jason
  22. Fortis I appreciate all the advice! I have one part covered already. I never leave home without hugging and kissing my wife, multiple times a day (drives her crazy when she's trying to do something and I interrupt her doing this having just seen her an hour earlier) Something I plan to continue with my son! Thank you Jason
