Thanks,when I was studying and taking the quizzes out of the book I thought I would never pass,somehow the actual test wasnt that bad,obviously if I passed it.

Now on to the tests that really matter,some of which I've allready taken and failed,some I've passed,gotta do more passing than failing and I'll be allright,feeling much better btw,I think my health troubles might have been stress induced,bidding and doing jobs on your own,plus thinking about that damned exam,studying into the wee hours,forgetting to eat might have taken a toll on my body,I think I'll hang out a while,give her my best shot,see what happens.

Anybody know anybody else who needs some painting done,really really expensively?

you lost me on the part of needing to pass more tests, some you failed some you passed. What are you talking about?

It was more of reading between the lines, or I would never have understood either.

He was saying the real test is if he can be a successful, profitable painting contractor or not.

He is in the contest to see how long you can type before using a period.
