    Hi Elsie.Thius is Virginia. just wanted to let you know that I finally passed my typing test with Mr. M , on Monday ,1-4-12. y morning. Yeaaaa! Now time to let the fingers fly during testing time.

    I just finished your practice session with the Tale of Two Cities. Great work out. My fingers were flying. What speed was that…

    About the briefs: suspicious=SPIGS, you had SPIGD, couldn’t make it out correctly. And,insisted=TPH-SIFTD. iI thought the KB was for the IM or the EM? Anyhow, Thanks for the STENSPIRATION! Good Wrork Out!

      Yes!! Congrats!! I just screamed out a happy cheer for you!! So proud of you, and happy for you! You are doing it, lady! :)

      I’m going to check out what I put for suspicious. If I put SPIGD, it’s a typo. It should be SPIGS.

      Also, I use the KB for IN and EN as well. I also use the SB for INT or ENT.

      Once again, thanks! So proud of you! That typing tesy news made my day! *smiles big!*

    Hi Elsie:

    I’ve been off the site for a while…I had family issues. My family member just died in Jacobi Hospital last night 12:31 A.M. this morning. I’m very sad. Well, life goes on have to get back to reality world, Steno. I’ll be okay the funeral is this Saturday,1-19-13. I’ll probably be very busy helping the family out. Sure going to miss my steno practice and video’s this week…You understand. I’ll catch up with you sometime soon!

    Thanks for the shout-out!

    Have a Lovely evening.

      My condolences. Keep being strong! Strength can be found in sadness and tears too. You and your family will be in my prayers. May your heart be at peace while you are going through these trying times. I’ll catch up with you soon.

      Much love! Keep the faith!
