Re: Not really space related

I always found the theory to be relatively, easy. Took me three times to
get the 13 and twice to get 20. For me, and everyone is different, I found
the trusty PC to be my edge. I made it a point to spend about 10 minutes
(really, only 10 minutes!) each day doing a practice run. This was done
every day without exception. I would then score my success or failure rate.
While it wasn't real impressive I could see an incremental improvement each
week. Took about 10 weeks to get that 20 out of the way the last time. 

I admire your determination and goal setting. In this day of decaying moral
character your note is a ray of hope. I believe more folks with your
attitude would be a welcome addition to this hobby (or obsession, as my
wife puts it!)

Good luck and the best of the Holiday Season to you and yours! 73
