Cool go to college

hi
i went to college alte in life , 29, i did natioanl diploma in horculture , this was in england it was great, i was suroundedby like minded people, we learnt loads of stuff and we learnt how to find thins out, and manage our time and accoutancy , business management etc... well worth going, also you will have a ball with all your horticulture mates.this took two years full time.
i worked my way through it.

i did so well, i went to to university and did degree in commercial horticulture majoring in fuirt production. this was three years, i had a great time.
when i finished iw worked in fruit production for awhile, before finally gettingback to land scaping, maintenace etc.. whic i do now.

i did fiv eyears of study and it has set me up for life. it gave me so much confidence and knowledge, and i met other people who have helped and still help me.

go for it.

good luck

For the record, I believe College to be a necessity for the majority of the proletariat in this day and age...

RLC: I don't know how I could possibly have wounded your pride so badly that you're now ranting about me on threads I'm not a part of, but you really are making yourself like like a bit of a fool. If you need to get your feelings out, feel free to PM me. I'll listen. But this high-school-girl equivalent of talking behind my back is rather petty and - quite frankly - reflects extremely poorly on you.

whoopass you are entitled to your opinion but unfortunitely for you your opinion means nothing to me.

my opinion of you is based on your previous posts and i'm sure if others read them they will come to the same conclusion as i have.

peace out lawnboy
