    Thanks everyone for the kind words.After my company leaves in a couple of weeks,I will crank out 5-10 more large jars.I will place them on orchid bids,to see how they go.I just need to find the sand sealer somewhere around here,that should't be to difficult.I have looked at the box stores,they don't carry it.I'll need to find a Hardscape,Landscape Supply Co. near by.Then I'll be good to go !! Thanks Again,Rich
