billy jays: Glop Yer Glop! - 11/02/16 08:49 PM
Hi folks!  It's been a while!
Billy Jays!  here!  And am I excited to be with you!
If you are like me, and I know you are, you don't like walking out of your house only to see a stream of water coming from the corner of a gutter.
How embarrassing!
You can only imagine the neighbors' faces as they walk by the house with the dog, looking over, and seeing that little, tinkling, cascade of embarrassment.
Can I be of help?
Of course I can!
I'm Billy Jays!
Well, I could not be prouder to introduce my newest product!
I call it Glop Yer Glop!
Glop Yer Glop!  you … (6 comments)

billy jays: Spray Yer Spot! - 10/24/15 08:07 PM
Hi folks!  Your buddy Billy Jays  here!
It's fall and time to get that roof ready for winter!
Yes, it's time for some real roof repair!
Have you gone into the attic to pick up those skis for this winter's trip to Snow Powder Land and look up only to see that white tube thing, what's it called again?
Yeah, that white tube thing has water dripping around it?
You don't want to think about rain when you really want to be thinking about snow!
Am I right!  Of course I'm right!  I'm Billy Jays!
I am so proud to bring this market to product!
Um, well, like, you … (17 comments)

billy jays: Splatter And Rot - 08/02/15 06:52 PM
You've seen it - splatter and rot.
Water falls and splatters.  If it splatters onto wood surfaces, over time, the wood will rot.
Rot requires three things - air, food and water.
That is why wood is painted outdoors.  To prevent the intrusion of water.
Paint fails.  Or it is too thin.  Or it is not put onto every surface (wood has six sides).  Old or poor paint admits water.
Sometimes many areas of wood trim on the outside of a house can develop rot because of flowing or splattering water.  If the caulking leaves gaps, or the paint cracks or peels, and the water does … (32 comments)

billy jays: Put Yer Pole! - 12/02/14 07:03 PM
Friends, it's been a while!  Visiting the mainland from my Caribbean Island home I was contacted by a friend and had an idea.
Hi folks!  Billy Jays  here!
I think it's time we regular folk took the code into our own hands!
Why?  It's getting ridiculous! 
Good gosh!  There's a code to protect me from my neighbor putting a hose in a bucket of poison!  Even the advocates of the code say that even when the code is obeyed the requirement might not protect us anyway, so don't leave a hose sitting in a bucket of poison!
Well, duh!
This got … (23 comments)

billy jays: Can Yer Can! - 01/11/14 06:00 PM
Hi friends!  It's Billy Jays here!  It's been a while!
Boy, do I have an idea for you!
Just the other day I was reading a post by Charlie Buell.  It concerned on-demand tankless water heaters!
Charlie came to the same conclusion as everyone else who has done posts on these "green" contraptions, including this guy.  It's the same old, same old.  Green means 'mo money!
Go ahead, knock Charlie if you want.  Well, I know Charlie Buell.  Charlie Buell is a friend of mine.  And you are no Charlie Buell!
But I digress!
That post gave me a great idea!

billy jays: Deviate Yer Downspout! - 12/18/13 07:14 PM
Hi folks!  It's been a while!
Your friend Billy Jays here!
You know, a mind expanded by a new idea can never return to its original dimension! 
I find that is so true when I introduce a new product to the market.  People everywhere have their minds expanded!  My new products always create new dimensions and new paradigms!
And today is no different!  I am so excited to bring this product to the market, I can hardly control myself!
Sure, you drive through neighborhoods and look at all the houses as you pass by.  And you notice how boringly similar they … (42 comments)

billy jays: A New Product Filling A Market Need Very Quickly And Very Well - 08/10/13 09:32 PM
Anytime I see a new product filling a market need very quickly and very well, it just brings a tear to my eye.
My client couple and I had been going through a house, kind of from thing to thing, when it came time to go into the attic.
As I did, the realtor, one Miss Kennedy, who, by the way, is walking around like she never had knee replacement surgery (!), and looks great, waited comfortably for the attic information.
There were a number of areas leaking into the attic.
And looking under a couple of those spots what did … (24 comments)

Friends and loyal followers!  Hi!!
It's me, Billy Jays again!
How good it is to be with you so soon after the introduction of one of my most popular products - Dot Yer Drips!
I have to say, Dot Yer Drips! has been flying out of our warehouses!

Are you tired of having designers tell you to spend big bucks on this or that "special" way to hang light fixtures from the ceiling?

Hi friends!  Billy Jays here!
I have something so special today, I think by the end of this commercial I might just be singing!
Tell me, how often do you pull into that driveway or walk around the side of the house and look at a boring, empty, everyday chimney!?
Well, can I guess?
Everyday!
Now that is one BOOOOORING chimney!  Look at it!
Be bored no more!

billy jays: Flatten Yer Fluid! - 04/05/12 08:29 PM
Friends!
Billy Jays here!
I am so happy to be with you today to introduce our newest product, truly the salvation of slow drains everywhere!
How many times have you had the gang in the basement to watch an important sports event, and while you're all standing around the wet bar you turn on the sink and the fluid you are sending down the drain, whatever that fluid might be, just won't flow?
I know it's happened to me before!
And it sure can be embarrassing!
Those darn traps under that sink sure can get in the way of good fluid … (16 comments)

billy jays: Stuff Yer Spot! - 03/27/12 07:40 PM
How do you feel, folks, when you go outside and the soil, or your patio, has pulled something off the wall of your house, and left a big hole? 
I know it makes me feel very self conscious!  What will my friends and neighbors think?
And how would you feel if that self consciousness could go away in minutes!?
Hi folks!  Billy Jays here!

billy jays: Dress Yer Hose! - 01/10/12 09:48 PM

Hi friends!
Billy Jays here!
So often we all enter or exit our homes, looking to one side or the other, to see a plain Jane hose hooked up to the bib.
And I know that so often I have thought, "Billy, that is one plain Jane hose hooked up to that bib." 
Well, I know you have too!
And there can be nothing but embarrassment when family and friends show up! 
Those days of embarrassment are gone!
