Despite getting a flat tire and having a nearly flat spare, I made it to my FOI test (ok, it was 5 minutes late). The test center personnel were extremely nice and after getting settled in, I finished the test in just under thirty minutes.

This caused me some panic, because I was certain that I had bombed it. However, I passed and got a really nifty and official looking piece of paper with my photo on it. So, I can now go through my department's clearing process (as soon as they write the test for it. I offered to write it, but, they refused for some odd reason :-) ).

On a health note, I recently had a discussion with one of the guys at the station about the health benefits of black cherries. Due to the dark pigment of the cherries skin having oodles of antioxidents, black cherries have anti-inflamatory properties. It seems the cherries are good for the heart, gout, arthritis, and possibly cancer.
