I was the first class of nurses to take their boards on a computer. I spent weeks going to a computer lab,going over questions and answers .This was before I was comfortable with the internet. The way the test worked was that you had to answer a percentage of the questions correctly. When you reached that percentage, you were finished, the computer turned off. Either you passed or not. I answered the questions and then my test was over. I felt as if I should have had more questions to answer. I knew a lot more answers. I was afraid that I failed since the test seemed to be over too quickly. I didn't know that I had passed until I got a confirmation note. I think most of my class passed. I have come a long way since that experience. I can get onto the internet, I can email. I am so sophisticated . However, I still need a Grandkid to help me with the finer things on my computer. Like how to copy and paste and make a folder and move stuff around. Not only is it a joy to have Grandchildren, but they grow so smart these days.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
