    Kids of EB

    just found out minisnick's Best bud is moving out of state...in a couple weeks. Their birthdays are two months to the date apart and have besties since babyhood. He is really bummed.

    looks like over 250 people have taken the new CBT chemical test since january at least once. 80% passing rate for first timers and 67% for repeat takers.

    just be prepared to drop a lot of time and $$$$$$$!!!!! chemicals, parts, tools, toys, electricity...it adds up fast. we got rid of ours several years ago. we were dropping $600+ a year for a 3 month season and only ended up using it a couple times.

    Home Improvement/Repair Questions

    I need a new windshield...i have lots of stars in mine. thankfully they are all on the passenger side and haven't spread. Hence I haven't fixed or replaced. I saw each rock coming too, and there wasn't a damn thing I could do to stop it. I have a glassguy, not safelight, there was a time a couple years ago I had fixed or replaced 3 windshields in less than a yr.

    Where will you view your NCEES Exam Result?

    Illinois was about a week behind the first releases, but I was F5-ing the state license look up and it popped up showing I had a license #. Didn't receive any letters or paperwork from state/CTS until over a week later via snail mail. I think I searched for my name a couple times to make sure. SO happy I cried!!! I assumed I would be taking again, because I had no idea what to expect because I didn't have any sample tests to study with...chemical study material was really hard to find back then.

    The musical instrument thread

    I played the cello for a year...the teacher and I didn't get along so I didn't continue. Mr snick played cello up through high school...expensive European cello (his parents paid for teacher to bring one home on the plane after an international concert thing) has been sitting in the closet the last 16 yrs...has come out less than a half dozen times. It needs to find a new home.

    We did the disney meal plan which includes the character breakfasts at no additional charge. So we had a character breakfast everyday to make sure we got our money's worth. We also did the Character dinner at the revolving restaurant at Epcot. It also made sure we got to see the important characters in a climate controlled environment and some personal time with the characters at the table. We then only had to wait to see the Toy Story folks...cuz you can't not see Buzz and Woody. Ditto the Contemporary Mickey Breakfast...if we had paid outright that was way too expensive for a buffet. The Lilo and Stitch breakfast at the Polynesian was probably the best value for the money...family style with as much as you wanted.
