Beneficiary Deeds in Missouri

MySQL: Count the total occupancy rate for a time period (month)

Recently I encountered a somewhat interesting MySQL/PHP task: determine occupancy for a reservation system. This entailed determining how many reservation days fall within a particular month.

Topic: Reversing the order of individual items in a string.

Set your own date format in MySQL

We live in an aera with bountiful timber and fairly low wages, quite ideal for house construction. So, that figure it likely quite
