Just an idea but maybe a casual yet classy golf clothing line. I always like to watch Ryan Moore on the course becasue he looks so caual but still looks like he knows how to play. I am not a fan of the Puma line but they seem to be the only company that makes that Casual look.

 

 

My idea is a 70's style golf brand with updated fabrics and fits.

I'm a 46 yr.Old Union Plumber. Have been plumbing since I was 10 years old working for father's business every summer. Once I turned 16 I took my journeyman test in city of Philadelphia, Pa. and have been a license plumber ever since. I joined the Plumbers Union Local 690 in 1983 and by the age of 25 I became a Master Plumber. So that would maybe it 30 years as a plumber total. I just celebrated 25 years as a Union Plumber last year while being out injured! I should be retired, or at least that's what my knees are telling me! I was injured on April 8th 2008 as i fell from a ladder approximately 20 feet. As a result of this I've had to have left knee replacement surgery. So it looks like I won't be plumbing anymore. My next endeavor will be to start a golf club repair and fitting business, most golf clubs will be waist high, I won't have to kneel down or climb a ladder or jump in a ditch, :) I've finally found my true passion, which is GOLF! I've been building and repairing golf clubs as a hobby for approximately 10 years and I hope to take it to the next level,and become a certified club maker. There's much to learn in the golf industry and like anything else in life you can always learn something new everyday! :P

Good luck Tim with the new career. Buying my own house about 12 years ago really made me appreciate the craft side of plumbing. All it took was one major issue that I "thought" I could fix for be to be very happy and grateful to write the check to the professional. I am sure that the craft of the previous profession will help the new one.

I was just talking about people like you today at work (I'm a teacher)... It seems that most high schools are only pushing kids to go to college, and they are not giving them any other choice... In my opinion, the world needs SKILLED professional workers... not every student is going to college, and we MUST give them other options...

The Process is what concerns me. I know plenty of kids who should not have gone to college, and plenty that should have. (myself included). How do you delineate between the two tracks??

That is the $10000 question. When I was teaching HS, the only track was college bound. All students need to take the classes to get into college. No other options. Track 2 has to be put together before we can figure out who should be there. NO more depressing ed talk, off to the beer of the week...

Sorry to continue the work talk, but this is something that my wife (a school psychologist) and I talk about all the time. My understanding of the education systems in many European countries is that, based on your skills in various fields, and possibly your preference, you are guided towards training in a particular field. That might be a college/academia, that might be carpentry, might be anything.

 

If we have any European members who could speak to this first hand, I would really like to know more about it.

You've compiled quite a list of accomplishments. Where in Texas are you going to be living?

My wife lived all over Texas, and her grandparents are still in Dallas, which is why I asked. Sadly, I am unfamiliar with Plano; perhaps I'll detour there on the next trip to her grandparents.
