Well! They may have degrees, but that is not an indicator of common sense or right thinking...M. Larson circa 9-27-2018.

That will be up to Paul to decide Roy.

Oh, and I believe they are sending out half cases which would have 20 books.

It baffles me, too. Like Marcel said we're trying different things to get more new guys/gals involved but to no avail, yet.

The books.. (free) (free books... my favorite price ) (if you answer the questions correctly)... have given me a tremendous amount of business over the years. I use the "free" book as a card holder for 3 or 4 business cards of my happy clients that pass our cards onto their friends, family and neighbors.

I joke & tell 'em they are great bathroom reading material so put it on the floor next to the commode.

Then when they first look at it I say "there will be a quiz in the morning!"

Good points, Dave.

I used Avery labels on the front, in full color, with logo, phone, email, my mug shot, etc. and received many inspections from the books. I always asked how the heard about my business. And many told me they saw the book a friends house or their Realtors desk, which made me wonder how it got there because I didn't solicit Realtors for inspections. Come to think of it, after I asked my client if it was ok to do the inspection review in front of their Realtor, I do remember some Realtors ask if I had an extra book that they could have.

The Avery labels come off after not to long.
So! I put clear packaging tape over them.

Questions are now open to everyone.

I didn't think these questions would be so tuff (tough). I am building a deck on my home so I picked deck questions because of what I'm doing and the answers to these questions should be easy to find if you Google the write term.

Have a go old timers!

I forgot to include the second answer for #1...
It should be C & D.

If I win I want to give the books to someone who hasn't won.
A new inspector would be nice.
