G'day Guys

Thanks for the votes.

I grew up by myself, I lived by myself from the age of 16, I have had no help. I've had to learn everything by myself, so I have made many mistakes, mainly financially. The only mistake I haven't made is leaving the trade.

As you guys know I love to cook but I love painting more. Other than that my dream is to have my own home.

I love when my Clients call me by my Name Ben The Painter

Thanks to my Mates who did nominate me.

Ben, I think you may be the most passionate painter, and passionate guy in general on the boards here.

Your posts are always entertaining, and you spare no expense in your preparation on both painting, and your meals.

I'm glad we got over our to tape, or not to tape debate lol.

As much as I love the trade and my job . I wish I had the Buisness skills like you both to have a team on : )
