I am not well educated by most standards. A lot of what I learned, I learned by either reading on my own, or doing. I have a HS diploma, and various certificates of completion for military courses. More than one thing, I learned the hard way. For example, I learned what the word hot meant on a motorcycle tailpipe. Dad and Mom both warned me.
Today I was asked a question I had to use the Internet for help. It turns out that a group of ducks is called a paddle.
