CPR/First Aid

I want to renew my CPR and First Aid certifications. Does anyone know of cheap or free programs in the Boston area?

Alternatively, if I can find a place that will do private classes, would folks be interested?

the fabulous tikva

tikva knows everyone. Or certainly nearly everyone. And everyone knows how wonderful she is, but I'm going to tell you anyway.

First, tikva is extremely friendly. She's bouncy, energetic and enthusiastic in a way that really lights up a room when she's in it. If I had a club and I wanted people to feel welcome in the club, I would have tikva act as the greeter, because you just can't help feeling like you're where you belong when you're with her.

tikva is adventurous and brave -- she's willing to take risks and she likes to try new things.

She's also thoughtful. When I want to get a clearly considered opinion of some issue, asking tikva is often a good bet.

These are some few of the many reasons that tikva rocks. If you want to know her better (and why wouldn't you?) her journal is often entertaining, too :)

the mysterious snoway

In the case of snoway, I must first preface my comments with the caveat that I really don't know snoway at all. But even so, I know a few cool things:

First, snoway is a Canadian. I think that all of us non-Canadians can really appreciate that characteristic right about now. I don't know if snoway has married an American in order to help with emigration hassles, but if you're interested, you could certainly inquire.

Second, snoway posts gorgeous photographs. I really love having photos pop up on my friends page, especially when they're pleasing, which snoway's photos always are.

Third, snoway has horses, and, if I've been paying attention right, even has a farm. Now that is cool.

So, you can see that snoway is a person after my own heart in that snowy, farmy kind of way :)
