Hi Everyone,

I'm Newbie Nick, nice to meet you all. I've really enjoyed reading through a lot of your posts in the last few days.

(Gordon- by the way- I'm also from Cuyahoga Falls, born and raised! :-)

I live in Jerusalem now, and am trying to brainstorm ideas for a business I could run here, and market to the states.

(From a chatteling standpoint, there's are some really cool markets in the Old City that sell Middle Eastern ornaments, religious artifacts that the tourists like. )

Some starting points:
~Budget of around $2,000 to get started
~I think playing up the Middle Eastern/exotic card would work well
~Even the "war/middle east conflict" card could work (?)
~Product should have large profit margin, as shipping costs to the States could eat into profit

Based on what I've seen here, you all are really creative, and I thought I'd throw the idea out there.

Thanks for reading this, everyone.

By the way- word on the street (and from a lot of my army buddies) is that things are going to really heat up in Israel/Iran in September...investors may want to order oil futures.
