First Day of School

Well, that is finally behind me. Got thru my first day off school.
 Classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The first 2 hrs. are going to be learning the Internet. Mainly getting everyone used to surfing the web and studying Ms. Access, Word, PowerPoint and Excel. I've got those programs loaded on this laptop, but it takes about 10 minutes for it to load. Need to do some work on this thing. My CD drive isn't working and I've not been able to up date the unit for a while.
 Around 9:30 we have the HVAC training. Today was mostly paperwork and safety training. The instructor showed us the lab we will be using and gave us a list of tool we'll need. Picked up the books and saw my bank acct take a nose dive. Books shouldn't cost over 100 dollars. Back in the day, they went for less than 50. Some are now over 200. Of course a dollar is only about 18 cents now. (No, I don't have a source for that).
 Got home and read the chapters I needed for one course and need to read some more for the other.
 At least they have lots of pictures.
Write more sometime.

I have thought of HVAC. Lots of AC where it is warm but you do realize that when the AC doesn't work it gets warm and that is when they call YOU. Just saying this as I find the key to happiness in life is diminished expectations. If you always expect the worst you are never let down as it is almost never as bad as you expected.
Good luck with the going back to school. The school thing is what I have problems with. When I sit down and listen to a speaker I go to sleep.
It is frowned on in school. Plus it is a very expensive way to get a nap.

Folks need to keep their beer cold. Will also learn heaters and oil-burners.
Not enough room for my recliner. Sitting near the front to help with the sleep problem.
Thanks for stopping by.
