Us lawn guys often talk about fuel, machines and efficient performance from engines and decks. 
But what of the real machine that drives our business? 
Our mind, our heart, our muscles? 
Why fuel our steel machines with the best there is, and fuel our bodies with less than the best. 
This is my day. Light enough to keep me from slowing down, but full of protein, energy, hydration (I carry an additional five litres of water with me) and homemade ice coffee (two shots of espresso, a splash of milk and teaspoon of coconut sugar). What do you guys use to fuel your biology? What works for you?

In my 40 years on this planet, I don’t think I recall a time when Adelaide has been so persistently windy. 
Literally all year. The prevailing South Westerly wind in winter has been eerily absent save for a few late rain events, and a regular North Westerly off the land has been a feature this year.  Well, it feels like it as I have had a lot of challenges around spraying this year that I’ve not dealt with before. 
I don’t have any stats or data to back up whether or not it’s been different, or if I’m just shooting too much coffee and it’s affecting my perception ;-) What do you #Adelaide guys think of our summer, that whacked out autumn, and this winter? 
I wonder if there is wind data available to prove or refute this.

Winter mow of this Kikuyu I knocked down a few weeks ago. This is four weeks growth in an Adelaide winter. Stymied by some decent winter cold fronts, this lawn back off to monthly cuts. 
Come spring, this lawn will pop. 
Are you ready for spring lawn mowing? Fortnightly or weekly. 
Make the call, send the email, or hit the website at www.iphlawns.com

Throwback to that time a few minutes ago when I was sitting up in the garage on the Ute, drinking coffee and watching the dogs run around. 
Times passes by so quickly. Good times.

Views: When you wish you had a blade brake on the mower. 
Every day in business there are hills to climb. It’s an undulating ride, not a singular summit.

Rain, hail, sideways rain, sideways hail. Throw in three seconds of sunshine at midday and winter pretty much punched Adelaide in the throat today. 
Very welcome rainfall. Cold weather tasks today at IPHq. 
New pricing spreadsheet. Built from scratch using whatever Excel formulas I could remember from High School computing class with Ms Donofrio in Year 9 in 1991.

Some days, no matter your business mission, goals, ethics, efforts towards service and business synergy...
...there’s no avoiding the fact that you pretty much scrub up like a fair dinkum criminal when you’re running from someone’s house with your hoodie up in the rain.

Tried to make it little by little
Tried to make it bit by bit on my own.
Quit the job, the grey believers
Another town where I get close to the bone.
Whatcha gonna tell your brother?
Oh oh oh
Whatcha gonna tell your father?
I don't know!
Whatcha gonna tell your mother?
Let me go...
I'm gonna get dressed for success
Shaping me up for the big time, baby.
Get dressed for success
Shaping it up for your love yea yea yea.
I'm not afraid
A trembling flower
I'll feed your heart
And blow the dust from your eyes and
In the dark things happen faster.
I love the way you sway your hips next to mine.
I'm gonna get dressed for success
Hitting a spot for the big time, baby.
Get dressed for success
Shaping it up for your love. Look sharp!

and b**w the dust from your eyes and
in the dark things happen faster.
i love the way you sway your hips next to mine.
i'm gonna get dressed for success
hitting a spot for the big time, baby.
get dressed for success
shaping it up for your love. look sharp!
