    Hi

    My name is Suzanne, PAK, Dooz, Hooker or any other epithet you might want to throw at me. I answer to anything. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I'm as old as carbon. I've grown plants all my life--CPs for about 4 or more years now. I also grow orchids, passionflowers, a wide variety of other plants both indoors and out. I have a number of gardens and a deck full of plants. I live in Ginter Park in beautiful, historic Richmond, Virginia, USA. I have many other interests...I buy and sometimes sell antiques/old stuff, collect vintage Indian blankets (and a ton of other stuff), rocks/minerals, art, music and lots of other stuff. I have a new little wire fox pup, Ollie Bean (will be posting photos of soon of Ollie being...well...Ollie).

    My favorite genus is drosera but I love all my CPs. And the best CP folks in the world are found on this forum. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Like everyone else...I am addicted. I'm a collector at heart and plants just fit right in with the collecting jones.

    Me?

    My nameís Aaron, but you knew that.

    Born and bred in Melbourne Australia 34 years ago. Work as a financial Planner for a large firm but have been a jack-of-all-trades for a long time and have only been in finance for 4 years (looking to change again soon with the 5-year itch fast approaching).

    I also run a part-time business called Aquatica Australia manufacturing filtration related equipment for marine aquariums (hobby up to commercial size) which is my other main hobby. Though, the hobby side is almost non-existent now that I've made a business out of it! Take heed anyone considering turning a hobby into a business!

    What little spare time I have is spent either working on my house and large garden, with friends and family or out on my MTB.

    Iíve had a fascination with CPs for as long as I can remember. As with most I dabbled on the odd VFT, Drosera and Sarra during my teenage years. Then through my 20ís was just too busy or transient to have an involvement.

    Now life is finally settling down a bit for me (no more long-term OS travel) so Iíve been back into them for 2 years and am pretty much stuck on Neps. I have a climate controlled 8x12í glasshouse with all the workings being DIY. Currently at about 70+ Neps over maybe 40+ species/hybrids. Of course I MUST HAVE MORE!

    As for you car people. I am one too but have never lived it. I've loved fast cars of ANY form my whole life, but due to the conservative and money wise parenting I grew up with, I was never quite able to justify spending the $$ on a depreciating asset (yes finance talk!). However, I'm coming to realise that is something inside of me that I MUST do at some point (i.e. build up a car) to get it out of my system. So now that I have a large enough garage the time may be approaching to give it a go. Plus my bro-inlaw is a gun car and bike builder, so need to take advantage of that! Not sure what yet but it'll either be American muscle or Japanese sports. Right now I'm leaning toward late 60's Mustang... maybe...?... Oh I donít know. Just so many great cars out there.

    Aaron.

    Aaron,
    I must say the Mustang is a great car. It might be a little difficult to get all of the parts without shipping a lot from the US... You would need to look into that more! What about a Holden Monaro? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
