Thomas, I enjoy your comments in the lounge....hang in there.

I am also a conservative non-republican , non-any political leanings....in fact politics is the problem I think....that's why I dumped ASLA about 20 years ago.....and they are bad at it ...where are they now? how could they allow fla or any state even hint at decertification???... 

I come from older school where we were taught how to think, not what to think...

I see you think for yourself also...I respect that and wanted yiu to know....

There is an event in Chicago, I think it is tomorrow. This is the firm I work with when doing green roofs. Ask for Charlie, Jane or Melissa and tell them that you are a friend of mine.

Thomas,

Thanks for reaching out and I appreciate the nice comment.

Yes, some time ago... perhaps 4, maybe 5 years ago I did work for Mark Scott, but only for 9 months to a year. It seems like a blur to me because I was working more than full time on my own projects at the time and then full time for him as well. Looking back I am not really sure how I handle anywhere from 8-16 projects for my company, and then handling Mark's projects (Mark would do the Concept Plan's, then I would take it from there...) in addition.

How long ago did you work for Mark? It would be interesting to compare stories.

Your right, Garrett is a good guy and his company does great work. We have worked on quite a few projects together over the years and I do my best to recommend Urban Landscape to my clients.

It's a small world. Let's keep in touch. Take care.

Hey Tom! Work is going well, I am learning a lot and that is what matters the most to me...my office is feeling the economic hardship, so I am living one day at a time! Are you still in CA? Do you know what you are going to do or are you exploring all alleys?

Hello Thomas my fellow californian,

I was born in Upland, CA. it's like a 30 min drive from L.A.

Anyway I know with the current international economic situation things have been slow, but I hope all is well with you. I read that you are a job seeker, if you still are and considering working in Saudi Arabia, please don’t hesitate to send me your resume and portfolio, I have to expand my team of landscape architects and I'm looking for new talented people. My email is (sabban31@gmail.com) I’ll tell you more about the situation here if you are interested.

Best Regards,

Ammar Sabban

That was sweet of u to say - thanks

just so u know ive done a lot free over the years while working at other stuff and am only now trying to help LAs for money - maybe. We have lots of supposed eco towns on the cards here and while i'll design a plant trough for an elf if they pay me i'll try to get in on those big projects to try to make a mark or stop folk making some error or other, or just add my verve generally.

I haven't necessarily heard of anything. If you changed paths, what would you consider going into? I'd stick with it though. If I hear of anything, I'll surely let you know.
