    SE MI: Let's give eachother money!

    Last week I had to get some work done on my car. I didn't know anyone so I found a random guy. It occurred to me that someone here might be a mechanic in the area and I just don't know it. I'd much rather give my money to one of you than some random person that is sending some to the brady's for all I know. So I propose this: Everyone in the SE part of lower MI that has a business or sells a service, post what and where. You might be a mechanic, roofer, proctologist, or sell life insurance or own a convenience store. Whatever. Just let us know. I'll start it off in the next post, just follow my lead. (you don't have to post an exact location publicly, just the neighborhood and we can PM specifics) I'd like to see one of these threads show up for every area in the country.

    I like this idea! If someone wants to crank one out for Arizona, I'll put my two cents in.

    Great idea, you should also try putting this on the Michigan centric sites also.

    I thought it was a good idea too, but the thread seems to be doomed to fade into obscurity...

    I could and maybe should visit the MI sites but showing up out of nowhere and starting this kind of thread could be viewed as exploitative, especially since I probably won't stick around. DC is home, the members are friends.

    Heck of an idea! Arkansas state licensed master electrician here.
    Let's give each other money!
    You know--it's not really a new concept, but I've always thought forums were a good place to help others. How many members are there here total? Say--if everyone was to send a dollar to one member every week, by the end of the year we might all have a new pistol as a gift from the forum for Christmas! And only be out $52! What does anyone have to say about that!? No---I'm not crazy. Think about it and get back to me.

    Apparantly there is very little action if this is left to a local area, so I'm definately cool with country-wide shoutouts. Snowdoctor: Let's hear it.
