    Well, actually, without wanting to blow my own trumpet, I just wanted to let you guys know that I am now officially a Westlawn graduate.:D :D :D :D
    Yep, 5 years, 11 months and 18 days is all it took for me to whip thru the course! Built two houses, two kids and a bunch of other stuff along the way.

    What I really want to say though, is a VERY BIG thanks to all of you guys. I could have got here without you, but you sure as hell made it a whole lot easier.:p

    So, there you have it. I now consider myself qualified to learn....;)

    You got through school in half the time I did.

    2 years = AS (Associates)

    9 years = BS (should of took 4 years, but worked full time)

    2 years = MS (Masters)

    Total = 13 years

    I paid for it all myself with a little help from the government at times.

    It's all smooth sailing now.................NOT. Hang in there and congrats.

    Of my 1876 posts, 1800 of them were asking you guys for help!;)
    I really mean it when I say I wanted to thank everyone. This is an extraordinarily valuable resource - onya Jeff!

    Gary - nope....seems like a lifetime ago to me!

    Mike - Gotta figure out how to pay for that dream now...

    Thanks again everyone - I honestly didn't put this here to get a pat on the back from you all (nice though it is;) ) - just to let you know that all your efforts weren't (entirely) in vain....

    Since you are the "catalyst" for option 1 , are we going to see this thread energised?
    Good luck with everything that lies ahead
