How To Report Tire Costs In Your Fleet and 31 pounds so far…

Did you like the video I posted last week of our puppy Kiba playing Bang Bang you're Dead with my daughter Kelly? Here’s the link. Click here and then scroll down to see the puppy..

31 Pounds so far… and counting. My son Matthew bought the P90X DVD’s and we started the regimen on Apr 1, 2012. I have a few days left to complete the 90 program and I have to say I’ve gotten into pretty good shape compared to where I was in addition to losing 31 pounds.

I’m going to go ahead and continue for another 90 days just repeating the phase 3 part of the program and see what happens.

So I have gone from 233 down to 202, my goal is 175 (which would be pretty amazing). By the way, it’s not just the exercise, I have to restrict my calories to 1400 per day.

I gotta say I am going through excruciating Pizza withdrawals and when I pass below the 200 mark it’s time to celebrate with some Papa Johns 🙂

Has anyone else gone through P90X or had a similar experience? Leave a comment below, I'd love to hear about it.

So this week I created a short video to show you how to see what you have spent on tires for a specific date range.

Just to reiterate and add to what's in the video.

Click Reports->More Reports->Report Type:Work Orders

Then choose

“All Work Orders Parts Totals by Equipment #”

Then enter your date range and then if you just want to see what you are spending on tires enter the word “tire”(without quotes) in the “Part Desc” field and also in the “To” field.

Then click preview.

As long as your part description matches the word you are searching for you will see all of that description of parts installed for that date range.

You can also use a wild card asterisk * before and/or after the “Part Desc” word you are searching for to see see part descriptions that maybe include more that one word and your not sure what the other word was.

Until next time…

Thanks Again

New Video Version 4.4.00 Parts Inventory Screen updates

I hope everything is going well for you this week.

Hopefully, this video is not as choppy as the unfinished house they are tearing down on the hill above us. More on that in a minute

I just finished up this video but updated my Camtasia Studio (Screen Cam Software) to the latest version so it might be a little bit choppy as I am just getting used to the new interface.

Last week I forgot to post the sample Terms that you can paste into the bottom of your work orders so I have added it here:


I am also posting the previous Video regarding all the new Preferences settings in Version 4.4.00 below.

So anyway someone starting building a huge multimillion dollar house on the hill above our neighborhood about 5 or 6 years ago.

It was all framed and had roofing material stacked on top of it and then it just sat there.

We figured they ran out of money or something.

Then we find out from our neighbor that they were forced to pay for all the utility lines to all the lots on the entire street. Not only that but the houses in our neighborhood that back up to the hill had contracts that said no houses would be built behind them.

So today they are chopping it up and tearing it all down… I've included some video below. It's going to be weird not seeing it up there anymore. It's really become a landmark around here that you could see for quite a distance.

It may be Las Vegas but we don't go into town much, so you can see what passes for excitement around here. 🙂

Oh well. By the way it's 104° F here in Las Vegas today while they were doing the tear down…

And for you dog lovers you might get a chuckle of this video my daughter took of her trying to get
our dog Kiba to play dead. Enjoy!

Please let us know if you have any questions or need any help.

All The Best!

Thanks Again,
