    I like you analogy. I took a college course on welding. I thought that
was going to be an easy 4.0 grade. HA! I learned to weld at in the oil
patch in Oklahoma. Notice, I said, "weld at", because that is what it was.
I was so surprised to find out how much I didn't know and what I did know
was basically 80% error in my methods. I'm sure I am not the only one in
this position.
    If you have the time or motivation, take a college course. It will be
worth its weight in gold!
