Lenny, sounds like a great opportunity and you are up for it. Hope all goes well. I am sure you will blog about it so I will look forward to that.

Good for you Lenny. Looks like you have a good memory, I am not sure I would have remembered all the questions in the test to be able to retell it here. Good luck on the other part of the test. Hugs
