You are correct. Have you been to the BVI's? The Bomba Shack? One of my truly favourite places in the entire world. A Bomba Shack full moon party.....legendary .

Unfortunately I haven't. I was on a cruise and we stopped one day on St. Marteen. My friend and I rented scooters and drove around the island. I always wanted to go back.

On my first delivery to the BVI's - it was a brand new Hunter 375 - a good friend of mine was with us as a crew member. We docked in Nanny Cay and hopped off dealt with immigration then cruised to the Shack. Two weeks later we hopped a plane to fly home and my friend refused to leave. He's still there working as a boat bum. That would have been in the late 80's. I Skyped him a couple of weeks ago and he's living a very simple and exquisitely stress free life.

Bomba and Laverne at the Shack. I would so love to go back to those carefree lazy days. Cruising the Caribbean living a great life on other people's money!

I would raise and train german shepherds and belgian shepherds to be guide dogs or service dogs.

Do Sheps make good guide dogs? Iíve usually seen Labradors.

Yes, they do.

The second article does explain why german shepherds might not make the best dog for everyone. I like them because they're so loyal and intelligent - almost intuitive.

High End Headphone Store where everything is 25% of MSRP and I'll give you an extra 10% off if I like your favourite bands.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

i reckon if you sold everything that cheap, you'd be constantly busy and it would ruin the idea of running a place. like the idea, though. would certainly be cool to be able to talk about music to people equally as passionate about it

Nah, you'd just end up with a bunch of Aristocrat types knocking about making the place smell like a tart's window box.

Just garden and grow stuff. :)

Not a huge farm or anything, I just want to take care of some fruits and vegetables and chillax.

Me too.. 
Some pretty flowers here and there and an herb garden with fruit trees and lots of veggies...
Also plant a shit load of cherry blossom trees alongside roads that are bare so decades after they can be gorgeous for other people...

I'd also like to raise bees and make my own honey.
But I'd truly like to make my own stained glass windows.  I don't know how to do that but I've always wanted to learn how.  I'm just a little artistic and with the right teacher I'd love to learn how...

I'd love to own and run an aquarium store, specializing in aquascaping.

In contrast to teaching, I find aquariums, particularly the upkeep and maintenance therapeutic and relaxing. I'd keep relatively fewer tanks, but focus on maintaining the healthiest plants and livestock.

Something I'd never get bored of looking at.

If money wasn't an issue why would I open a business? I'd rather spend that time with my family, traveling, etc.   


Exactly.
