This thing with wanting to learn about First Aid and life saving things comes from 2 things.
- Dad used to be an EMT and I found the job fascinating
- My propensity to go hiking and backpacking in the backcountry
There are other reasons but those are the two that are at the heart of it. I'd probably go and get certified as an EMT, if I had the time and a way to practice the skills. However, working a rotating in a weather office kind of precludes that.
By the way, using blogger.com for my blog has been a cinch and I am slowly finding new things to tweak it.
