I am a semi retired Green Keeper, Course Superintendent, Gardener of Golf courses. I started my career as a Land Surveyor in the then Rhodesia. Trans-located to South Africa and continued in my chosen career. I developed a computer program for Golf course financial analysis, and that is where I'm at now. the program is being encoded and prepared for Beta testing... nearing sales time... wonderful.. The program nearing completion, good news, with interest from throughout the world. The computer program continues to grow as we develop and has become so much more than what we originally started with. I have completed a document book, or a reference book that aids the Golf industry with legal compliance within the fields of Occupational Health and Safety Act as well as the Environmental Act, it is centered on the South African market. 360 pages, 120 000 words all thanks in part to Street Articles, that allowed me to hone my writing skills. Published now and selling, what a reward for something that started off as a time filler. I still have two books on the computer nearing completion, that are for the fun of writing about my life and experiences in the wilds of Africa. Street Articles has given me a new insight into so much and I love the interchange with fellow Authors. Thanks All.
