Didn't you start with inkwells and a quill, Tony? :lol:

Quills? They didn't trust us with those. We had slates and chalk. :lol:

That's a new one on me. :?

Sorry, Tony, it was a rough translation :D It's something like computer sciences, information technology, that sort of thing... like handling Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, SharePointDesigner, etc... knowing how a PC is built up, that sort of thing.


So thats what i do :lol:

Really beautiful day out, a little cool but that's ok. Made for a great day to be out on the golf course volunteering for the chamber outing. Not playing golf! No one wants me playing golf. Just keeping track for the prizes. Got a free lunch and got out of there a little earlier than expected too. :D
