Yes, I'm sure we have met somewhere along the way, maybe even tipped a few
glasses at those great NSH Convention party's. I remember Dom very
well....another great founder of our organization. He is gone as well.
Recently passed on my Priece (sp?) text to a person I hired to OJT,
shortly before retiring. Only book I knew back in the dark ages. Well,
there was "Lillie", but man, I couldn't even lift that one and at the time
was too much for my small brain. Might still be. :)
Yes, the exam has entered the computer age, Frieda, Sumiko and others have
worked very hard on perfecting the exam and making it as fair as possible.
The way the computer exam works is extremely interesting, but I will leave
that to those who know the workings of it to expound on. I believe there
was an article in "NSH In Action" awhile back explaining it. Think Sumiko
Sumida authored it, but not sure. Now there is a great lady, quiet but
really knows how to get the job done!!! Great NSH President at the moment.
Yes, NSH has a wealth of resources and Peggy so vividly posted them, or some
Love your e-mail name Terry....Looneytoons.........go get em, Bugs Bunny or
