If you are looking for an opportunity to find a career that will provide employment while working locally, a Class B Commercial Drivers License might be the right choice for you. A Class B road test is not as difficult to pass as a Class A road test since Class B trucks do not have a trailer. It will take you less time to prepare for a Class B road test and the chance that you will pass your first road test is better.

" We were talking one day and she said, “I want you to be around for a long time. You need to get healthy.” That flipped the light switch. I had found a diet that really worked for me and by early 2014, I had lost a lot of weight."
While some people may find JD's diet a bit extreme, he got the results that he was looking for. The article is posted in two parts.
