Some interesting stats

Saw this interesting post over at Sense of Event's blog, so that made me think to check my own blog stats...and found this real interesting (these are from the past week):


So I will just say this...

Привет нашим российским друзьям!

A successful day

As those who regularly follow my blog would know, I have been taking an online EMT course since January.  Today I had went and did my psychomotor (hands-on skills) testing, and I am proud to report that I had passed all the required stations.

Now this puts me a little bit closer to getting certified and able to be licensed.  Once NREMT gets confirmation from the training center, I will be able to go take the cognitive exam (written test, although nowadays it's computer-based) and then I can apply to the location I want to work at.

Good day overall, I feel fantastic about the outcome.

Proposed body armor ban introduced in Congress

Yet another piece of illogic bursts forth from the den of congresscritters in D.C.  This excerpt from the article's ending really says it all about the insanity these days:

The logic of this bill is so askew that it wouldn’t be surprising if perhaps next they will try and pass a bill that outlaws hiding behind things while being shot at.
In a continuation of that logic, law enforcement could use the PR line; “ If you haven’t done anything wrong, why would you need to hide behind anything?”
Link to the article.  Also a view of the proposed bill here.

My apologies

Haven't really attended to the blog lately, other matters have been holding my attention, such as finishing up my EMT training, general mishaps, and a little bit of mayhem.

Rest assured am doing well, and should be back to somewhat normal by next month.  For now, it will be on a 'when I can' basis.

Happy Birthday to me

Yep, am another year older, and hopefully am a little wiser today.

Now let's see what the next year brings...

As a quick side note, Wirecutter is celebrating his birthday today, so go over and wish him a good one.  Also, Divemedic's blog is starting his ninth year today as well.
