One of my furniture suppliers (bars, barstools, poker tables, game chairs, etc.) uses the same leather used in Bentley's. Oooh, soft.

Eh I figure im working 40hrs a week at least at any job, why not put a little more time/effort and get a whole lot more for it.

Anyone have suggestions when hunting for apartments?

If it weren't for this awesome job, I'd never have a chance to build the miata. The only reason I did is because of this money. I'll never have the chance to build a dirty track car again; I'll either have a home or a pool to spend money on.
heh, i'm in almost an identical boat. my degree is what got me making as much as i am, but it's also why i'll be in debt for a long time...

might as well do it now, while i don't have a mortgage on top of it all. :-)

Berkley Mills. Excuse me but that was a coffee table for $3400!

I deal with custom domestically made products primarily. I've gotta start charging more.
