"Many of the guys I went to high school with in a small East Texas town close to the coast went on to become welders, pipefitters, machinists, millwrights, etc.  They work on projects that are only going to last a certain period of time,…"

"I'm reminded of that saying that goes something like: You can't reason someone out of a position that they weren't reasoned into.   I'm fine with policy disagreements, but the whole "Obama's a Muslim" thing is…"

"Craig, takes conviction to say what you did. I'll stand with you. My experience is that the "new & improved" right has run most of us who were interested in constructive dialogue off. Robert-- I appreciate your point of view, but…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'LA's searching for a JOB....a few suggestions.'
"Andrew, I think your point about profitability to the firm is perhaps the most important factor in an employer/employee relationship.  Many don't seem to grasp it, and who can blame them, I don't think it's emphasized enough in…"

"We live & die by oil down here in Texas. Simple as that. To be fair, there are other industries that shore things up, but when the oil guys are down & out, everyone feels it. I'm in favor of meaningful regulations, but want fewer of the…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION FOR ALL U.S. STUDENTS?????'
"Well, the forum has been rather quiet lately, perhaps this thread will generate a bit of discussion.  I admit I've not ran any costs or looked into the subject with any scrutiny, but here's a few general observations: 1. I imagine…"

"There are a couple neigborhoods around here that require an LA seal on residential landscape plans.  An installer I've worked with for about 10 years asks me to review and seal his planting plans occasionally.  I'll meet him on…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to Sara Shirley's discussion 'Pattern Books for Rezoning'
"With only a cursory look, "pattern books" appear to refer to a proprietary process from a specific firm that results in what looks a lot like a master planned community to me.  The specific methods and process they use is exclusive to…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to BennettSmithhart's discussion 'What other services does your design firm offer besides LA?'
"I see potential there, though being stand-alone professions in their own right suggest there's a considerable amount of time of time and effort put into both things.  If you're talking about bringing in a team to accomplish this, it…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to BennettSmithhart's discussion 'What other services does your design firm offer besides LA?'
"I'd say it would need to be something you truly enjoy and excel at.  If it's something that needs a lot of your effort and time, it has the potential to distract you.  Winning (and then producing) LA projects will be enough of a…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to ZACH CROSS's discussion 'Augmented Reality'

Dave McCorquodale replied to BennettSmithhart's discussion 'Freelance Landscape Design'
"In a nutshell, sort of.  Said another way, they're paying you for a design and you're giving them 100% of your effort.  You know that you're being compensated for the work.  A design/build company doing "free"…"
