Wow..what an achievement. Wishing you total success and satisfaction James from someone practically illiterate in such a field.
I'm sure you'll do really well.

Thanks so much everyone. We are both very excited and I am so proud of him. Stir--we don't know if James was the 1st or 13th chosen, but we are glad he is part of this small group. They are going to have to work very hard, but James loves a challenge. There was never any doubt in my mind that he would be chosen.

WooHoo, way to go James!! We used to use a CAD program to make project maps on my forest. Now we use ArcGIS. I could make maps with the CAD program with my eyes closed and now I just cannot seem to grasp the concept of the new software. I am sure James will have no problem with CAD.

Congratulations James, what a wonderful news, you really deserved it!! CAD can be quite challenging, we have been using it to design our new flat but even the Mr. computer know-it-all Cris has struggled to get it work as he liked. But it does look like a very intersting program. Now you can come here and teach him some lessons when the course is over!
Have a great time, hugs to both of ya!!
