    I've never had a hauler that didn't require 1/2 up front and the other half on delivery. Perhaps your boyfriend needs to review his contract and policies?

    Regardless, posting their names on a...

    I agree with Obsidian, but again, I was looking for pretty much FT staff.

    I'm not opposed to taking someone on who doesn't have a lot of experience or is down on their luck. What I care about is...

    Have not seen it mentioned thus far, but has any consideration been given to the food she's on? (since you mentioned the pH level at 8.5 and struvite crystals)
