Last night was our last class on the topic of Hazmat confinement and containment. We had a top expert in Essex County as our speaker. The instructor had so many interesting stories about situations, especially involving children and schools, that I was thinking if there was a way he could speak in front of parents that would be awesome. As a parent, I find it frightening that kids can pick up information about explosives through the internet.

We're off from the Academy for a few days, and looking at my book it's daunting to try to digest and remember everything I need to know for the finals, both practical and written, in only three weeks. I think last night I was dreaming about tying knots on a ladder. Maybe I should put the Christmas lights on my roof this year for practice, who knows.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and thank you for your well wishes for my daughter who is in the hospital still.

"dreaming about tying knots on a ladder" LMAO
It's Always interesting to have an instructor that’s an expert. Had one at a WMD class’ this guy invented SARAN gas, man was he fun to listen to, he is who the President calls when they have a problem.
