I have been here awhile *since 02*. *I have lived in Michigan since 1989. *I was born in Sacramento, CA. *I have always enjoyed growing plants. When I lived in California I collected cactus. I believe I had about 50 or so. *They were very easy to take care of because all I had to do was water once a week. *I enjoyed skateboarding, biking, soccer, basketball, and fishing in California. *When I moved to Michigan all my cactus's died in about 2 months. *I kept watering once a week and soon they all rotted. *I was into CP's in California but my sister would always touch the vft's so I blamed her for killing them. Though now I know the tap water was the reason they died.
When I moved to Michigan my plant growing days died (as in growing plants in a pot). For about 10 years I never had more then 3 plants at once. *Those plants would consist of vfts. *During those 10 years I was in wrestling, basketball, video games, coins, gardening, and card collecting. *Remember playing 10 yard fight and Mike Tyson Punch Out. Currently my hobbies in Michigan are hunting, fishing, Karate, Grappling, chess, running, cps, stock market, and yard work.
I started to actually take good interest in cp's around end of 2001. *Around beginning of 2002 I did an Internet search for Venus fly traps. *I found **********.com and liked the easy purchase and shipping of plants. Others were to expensive or you had to send a check and fill out a form. *Pft also had a message board which helped me to get started with cps. *Well, I have never left and really do not for see me leaving in the near future.
Since I was created I have lived/visited in Saudi Arabia, Grease, France, Italy, Mexico, Canada, and Honduras. I learned how to play chess in Saudi Arabia. *I also took karate and my dad got his black belt in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. *One day I will go to Australia and do scuba diving. *That may be a couple years down the road. However I am going sky diving on my 30th birthday in Oregon. I will show some of the pictures when I come back. *
