I'd probably drip fund it, I'm interested in eventually getting money to work for me, not the other way around.

How do you turn rock salt into money?? I thought that stuff was just for packing in the ol double to fend off trespassers with.

Me personaly, since it was a x-mas bonus and I didn't sweat for it, I would not spend it on the bussiness unless I really needed something, otherwise I would probably spend it on myself in a couple of days!

Now, the member that talked about the rocksalt is from New Jersey. It gets very cold there. Sometimes the rain can even freeze and turn to ice or snow. To help get rid of ice and snow some people will use salt. Some people even get paid to push the snow out of the way of cars and they can be paid to spread salt too!

I just ordered the new shindaiwa 630 RT. I get 500 for my birthday and 500 for xmas from the parents. Of course they live eight tenths of mile from me and I am the only child out 7 that lives in this state so I am the designated caretaker.
