I know this is an old thread

I am planning on (which sometimes doesn't mean much) a show and tell in the Susquehanna Valley area of Penna. this spring. But that is only if I can work out a few details in time and then get permission (no, not just from my boss at home ;-)

Get a lemon. However you want, get the seeds. Get a small planting pot. Put a thin layer of small rocks in the bottom. Then, fill the rest up with potting soil. Optionally, you can grind up eggshells and mix it into the soil, its great for the plants. Then, poke a inch deep hole into the soil, and put your lemon seed in. Plant them about a inch apart. Keep the soil watered, but not soggy, and you should have lemon sprouts in about 2-3 weeks. Keep them on a sunny windowsill or something of the sort. Once they sprout, you may want to water them with a spray bottle for a month or two. Once they start crowding out their pot, replant them into larger pots. Good luck! And just so you know, they grow very slowly after they've sprouted. Mine are about 5 inches tall, and I have had them for a year! Also, you can follow those instructions for any citrus fruit. Grapefruits do well.

you should try to start skateboarding or karate/ tae kwon do, they are both very,very good for your health and your mind, they build confidence and muscle. Iguarantee that if you stick to either one, you will see an improvement in endurance and perserverance. Tae kwon do will also allow you to "find "yourself to be at peace with your emotions and respect oneself. you should try one if you want.

Well, I'm trying to restore four Indians. That's my summer project. But I bet that's not in your ballpark. One fun thing that I did was I built a sandboard and took it to the Dunes.

Nothing at the moment, because most of the money I am saving up is for skis I am planning on purchasing. However I do plan on further improving and growing my current business with my brother.

It is called NGB Enterprises. I made it to correspond with the kits that I sell. Edmund Scientific wants to buy a few kits, and I had to have a valid business i.d. I filed for a dba (google it; its somewhat confusing) and started my own business. Now if any other company contacts me, I will have a valid business and tax id so they can purchase from a minor.

The only kits that I sell are the ones in the Marketplace. The 9V USB Charger and the Mini LED Flashlight. Hopefully as the summer moves on, I have more time to formulate new kits.

At the moment I am in the process of completing two offers for the kit. Edmund Scientific contacted today as well telling me they passed my 9V kit on to an intern.

I've got a genuine air guitar to make (no joke), along with a proposed Giant (as in 4ft tall) iPod. I'm going to work on turning my desk into a drum machine and build myself a theremin.

Oh, neat! How does it work? A glove with some sort of sensor in the pockets is my guess... Or will I have to wait? ;-)

I'll probably have to put some more work into the Manta Drive, but I also fancy building a proper robot, either the Bugbots BEAM Sumo, or something along the lines of Mikey77's one-inch robot (but larger).
