    Lol!!! No, this is in addition to the fire dept. I'm a CPR instructor, so I've been getting a small business going teaching CPR, AED, and First Aid. This past week, I obtained my instructor cert. In Advanced Cardiac Life Support. So I'm adding that to the list of classes now.

    Exactly right! All 3 of mine are doing things this year, and its every day of the week I think. So with school,homework, and after school activities, yes the hours disappear very quickly!!

    Just noticed my trip ticker is still going. Need to redo that. Don't know if we are going in 2014 or not. I sure hope so!!

    I have a grand vision of staying at The Contemporary, but have a realistic problem of paying the $ 8100 Disney is requesting to do so!

    Ahh, thanks Brian. I've managed to convince (actually didn't take much convincing at all) Adam that we should have a white Christmas in 2 years. Now it is just a matter of where. I've narrowed it down to (but not limited to), NYC, Montreal, Paris, or Scotland (where I have family)

    Not only NoCal, but SoCal too, Sera.
    Mammouth Mountain, June Mountain, Sierra Summit, etc.
    Mountain High is only about 90 mins. from downtown LA off I-15!
    I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

    Woot! Easy to work around the Dept's schedule. Often the schools here hire our firefighters here that have branched like you to instruct staff in the state required CPR etc. Works real well.

    My kids (adults) are Certified Instructors. They have trained other to become instructors along with CPR, AED and First Aid. They are also certified LifeGuard Instructors. My DD now spots AEDs where ever she goes.

    This summer my DD trained her first class of instructors. Pretty cool. My DD also manages a pretty big waterpark and aquatic center. She designed a new scanning pattern for her guards. They had 3 risk (under cover filming) independent audits this year and passed them all 100%. While a handful of competing facilities can possibly tie her facility, her design made them the safest waterpark in the world this year. She is building that resume up at of the old age of 21.
