You sir, compared to me, are. About 2 generations. :) But you have a rare 
attribute, a goodly dose of common sense.

Thank your favorite $Deity.

Thanks for the flowers, but the net in general hasn't heard more than 5% 
of my BTDT's.  If I live long enough you'll probably read more.  They 
are the education of Gene, who in the official record has an 8th grade 
education dated in the 1940's. 3rd time married 31 years in about a 
month, to a lady thats about done now, and has a B of A in music 
education, she wanted me to at least get a GED so I took it about 25 
years ago. Didn't hear by the time I should have, so since the test 
givers $DayJob was at the P.O. I went in to check on it, and his 
question to me was "Why are you worried about it, you were just doing it 
for the exercise, weren't you?"  I had to say yes. I did get it about a 
week later. I also have a degree from the University of Hard Knocks. One 
of the rules for that is that you can say you've made it on a high 
school education or less. More disqualifies you. And your claim to have 
made it must be proved by a $100 donation to the student loan fund at 
Alderson-Broaddus University in Philippi WV where Dee got her Music 
diploma from.  And of coarse $35 a head for the graduation dinner and 

I quit school in '48 to go fix what were then these new-fangled things 
called "tv's". There's a hell of a lot of history between then and now.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
