    My Mini addiction is funded by taking care of high end homes landscaping needs. It also includes commercial buildings landscape maintenance. I also dabble with landscape design from time to time when someone needs another eye so to speak.

    My past life (career before moving up in PNW) was in the Silicon Valley and worked in R&D for alternate energy, and medical imaging companies.

    Our mini addiction is funded by other automotive enthusiasts from a full spectrum of vehicles from classics to luxury and exotics. I'm part owner of an after market company that provides commercial/residential/automotive window tinting services, automotive paint protection (clearbra), and automotive/boat/motorcycle detailing etc. My wife, Cher, is a full time student going towards her goal of being a dental hygienist, and will be a part time dental assistant until that time comes.

    My Mini addiction seems to be supported by funds gleaned from selling other projects! Most, but not all, of my Mini Marcos ressurection was funded by the sale of my BSA motorcycle collection.
    I am a teacher, my wife is a property manager for Qwest.

Currently doing just about anything to pay the rent. The latest endeavor was to fabricate and install a railing for a 9' x 16' deck.

    I try to support mine by being a Federal law enforcement officer and a mechanic in the U.S. Coast Guard. Now if I could just sell my house I could put my mini back on the road.

    Support my Mini habit? By working on everybody else's Mini.
    Hung up the suit and tie over 10 years ago and said, "I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more."
