Expanding my Horizons

I'm about to start a huge undertaking...earning my CBM and NWA seals. That means two tests and two tape reviews...hopfully just two, I know a lot of people don't pass the first time around. I'm sure my next few posts will consist of tapes for people to comment on and a lot of venting on my part.
