Heads or Tails



This weeks "Heads or Tails" meme theme is "school'.

So I'll tell you about a class I took a few years ago that was paid for by my company. We have a program that allows us to educate ourselves in a variety of things. This class I took was called "Racing Engine School". It was 2, 8 hour days long on a weekend and was very insightful. Of course, you won't learn everything there is to know about racing engines in 2 days, but it was still fun. I have a (background of auto mechanics anyway( I was licensed for a few years).

Quite a lot of things taught in this class was already known to me but I did learn some more technical aspects about building racing engines. All in all, with the books and knowledge I gained in this class, if I decide to build another race car like I had when I was younger, I will be better prepared to do it right.

That sounds like a fun class. I wish my husband was mechanically inclined, but at least I have 3 brothers that are mechanics.

Those are grueling classes yet I tend to favor them myself. Mine are mandatory so that the topics are not as interesting, so my priority is to finish the requirements so that I can return to my life and get my credit. Wrong attitude; your attitude is what we should all have.

My son-in-law is an auto mechanic by training and trade now. My ex-husband is also an auto mechanic as well as heavy-equipment mechanic and my son, well he just loves cars. Period! That class would be something I can see that all three of them would really love to be able to attend!

Bet my husband would enjoy the class. He's very mechanically talented. He attended skills center for auto mechanics and just learned the rest on his own. I thank goodness he knows so much because we save A LOT of money on auto repairs.
