Naww, no figuring required Joanne.  We've both 'been there, and done that, 
probably even bought then tee shirt' and when we got through beating some 
basic principle into somebodies head that should have been taught at the 
school they did attend 15 years back up the log, its amazing how often, once 
the light above their head does come on, that they will then ask "Why the 
hell aren't you teaching someplace, no one ever explained that in terms I 
could understand before".

Sure, just go right ahead and try to get a teaching certificate with an 8th 
grade education and a diploma from the School of Hard Knocks.  They'll laugh 
until they wet themselves with that one.

Cheers, Gene
