Have you thought about something like a Kindle version of your book, or an audio-book? It would save on printing/binding costs

I hope you will enjoy being boiler operator. You may also start teaching ppl how to do proper welding.
I wish I could be a your student, but I live to far.

I do have a boiler operating job when I complete my class. It is one of those situations where the company is going to give me a call when I get my training done, some time in May. They just wanted more boiler book work, before putting me in a boiler.

But with all my other troubles right now, who knows what is going to happen.

I actually had a interview today for a second welding instructor job, but I am calling them this morning and letting them know I am not interested in that job any more.

I had flooded the job market since October with applications, and nothing worked, then a week or so ago I suddenly had four decent job opportunities, but as my fate always goes, just as soon as I had the chance to go back into the workforce, they take my driving license away. It really kind of sucks.
