I'm now on the "top 10 wireless posters" list for this site...
My husband and I are celebrating our twentieth anniversary today!!
Happy 20th!!! My 8th is a week from tomorrow.
A little shameless promotion of an award I am receiving tonight:
Rising Star: Carey Bandler
CONGRATULATIONS wirles, very nice.
Happy Anniversary Renee!!!
Last night, I was certified for the first time in Adult CPR/AED at our local American Red Cross location.
This is primarily for our ecotour business since we tend to have older adults on our tours plus corporate and private tours with large groups that have people that have never been to the area before and are not used to our climate. I can also lend my expertise to other situations such as if I see an accident where no one else has stopped. My dad was recertified.
Good job Gamer! I believe everyone should know how to do CPR.
Are you buying an AED for the van?
Thanks Jay. We are looking into it. The good thing is that they have come down in cost over the past few years. We have group tours set up for next spring and summer and it would be nice if we had one by then.
Quick action with a defibrillator can not only save you from doing CPR, it can save someone's life. Especially since you'll be out in the "wilderness" I'd imagine there isn't a hospital or rescue squad close by. I'd say its money well spent if you can afford it. If you checked with your state, because of the nature of your business you may be able to get a grant to partially cover the costs of purchasing the device and training your personnel.

CONGRATULATIONS Gamer. Well done.
Well unless we go deep off-road with groups (which we have done before), we usually are within about a 20 minute drive from a hospital (which in serious conditions is really far). Where we use our vendors down in the Everglades area there is a rescue squad within a 5 minute drive, but the closest hospital is about 20 minutes away. We will look into the particulars of the grant (that is interesting since I have never thought about that) if we decide to go that route.
Thanks Charlyee. Have a safe trip back from India tomorrow.
Congrats Gamer!! That's great!
That's quite an accomplishment congratulations, Gamer!
Thanks hme83 and dmapr. I appreciate it.
The TSA approves of me (or my history). This comes after fingerprinting, a background check, and the renewal testing required every five years for my Commercial Drivers License class-B (CDL-B) Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) "H" endorsement by the Tennessee Department of Safety. (And dollars changed hands at every step, starting with the DOT physical.) TDOS wanted a LOT of ID, more than ever before. New glasses, etc. (astigmatism had rotated in one eye).
One never knows when a new career might be necessary. I haven't used my CDL-B powers since April 2000, when I stopped being an Outside Plant Technician (lineman). I couldn't borrow a 26,001+ lb. straight truck to test with again, so better to keep this current. From inside the windowless central office...
It was 10 years ago today I started engineering cellular networks ...and I'm still amazed at how much I don't know...:O
Hurray! 10 years ago today I was in middle school, lol.
Ok, here is an accomplishment. I somehow managed to get my girlfriends 3 AT&T lines out of contract without an ETF last month. Today, we called sprint to set up a port, and in literally 10 minutes, the numbers were ported and working. I thought porting took days?
Anyway, I see both of those events as an accomplishment, lol.
Congrats Yankees, but that sounds more like a miracle than an accomplishment.
Haha, it might as well be a small miracle. Free, free from AT&T at last!
Well good luck just the same.
All is done already. Though I will say, it was a LOT harder to get a rep that would port the numbers over and knew what they were doing. Once we got someone who knew what to do, it was an hour process.
SPRINT!: train your sales reps better. we almost gave up.
I Have Completed the Florida Master Naturalist Program!
I completed the Florida Master Naturalist Program (Florida Master Naturalist Program Homepage) today. To complete the program you need to take three modules (Freshwater Wetlands, Coastal Systems, and Upland Habitats). I completed the Freshwater module last fall, the Coastal module in early March, and the Uplands module today.
Each module is 40 hours long (a total of 120 credit hours after completing all three modules). The modules consist of coursework (PowerPoints, videos, and discussions), field trips, hands-on experience, and a final project. You receive a completion certification for each module, a program patch, a module pin, and after taking all three modules, you receive a plaque.
Here is my plaque (taken with my Storm) with the patch and pin for the Uplands module (the last module that I took):
Congrats Gamer, you should be proud of yourself.
Thanks josephd. I am proud. My dad completed his courses in 2006 right before we started our ecotour business. I now have my official certification too.
Congratulations Erik! That's awesome!!! :clap::highclap::clap:
