    Might get cold at night, Nep G. But that's basically what my house is.. I open the window at night, and it gets down to 6 or 7 in the house, and in the terrarium. Always gotta remember to wear those socks at night.

    I was just reading about a man that started a pondscaping business in INC.
    for those of you that dont know thats a business mag.
    Anyway This guy started in 1990 and was grossing over 44 million in sales by 2000, I forget his name I do remember that he copyright the name the Pond Guy or something like that. It was a neat article definately worth reading fro any aspiring business owner.

    Check out www.Inc.com you should be able to find it there.
    Peace

    I'll have a story coming up in the Conservation Forum about a trip to a cp site in South Carolina.
    I was given a tour by the game warden. His job is to look after the site and enforce the laws. He told me he had a degree in botany. I would love to have his job. Maybe you could think about a job doing something like that.

    Well, I make my living as a manager of horticulture at a large botanical garden and I feel very fortunate to be able to work with CP as part of my job. I love reading all or your ideas. This list is full of young people with a real passion for plants and that is a fantastic start.

    It is important for me to tell you that I am not rich from horticulture, in fact most of my good friends from college who went into computers or business or... make more money then me. HOWEVER, I LOVE WHAT I DO. I look forward to work (well, most mornings anyway!) I am not stuck behind a desk and I can walk into the jungle even when it's snowing outside.

    I make a comfortable living, I have three kids, I own a house, I have health insurance and a retirement plan. So, I feel very fortunate to be where I am.

    My advice? Pick your profession first for what you love, not the cash it may promise. Go to college. Stay there for your masters or you doc if you can. If you really like plants, there are some very rewarding positions out there. Some even let you play with CP! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
