Last night I set the inside and outside tiles of my shower curb, finally!

Now that both sides of the curb are tiled, you can use the top edge of the tiled surfaces to guide you as you smooth off the top of the curb. Smear a little thin set on the dry mortar and add more mortar to the curb, raking the new mortar off flush with the tops of the sides.
In working with concrete such as a slab, or pool plaster, I use a cement adhesive to create a bond between the new and the old concrete. My questions are:
1. Should I pre coat the top of the curb and the back sides of the tiles with concrete adhesive before I apply the layer of thinset and additional mortar on top of that in bringing my curb to the proper elevation?
2. Should I also mix a little of concrete adhesive into the mortar also, as I do when working with concrete? Will the upper insides of the bare tiles adhere to the mortar by themselves without some type of adhesive applied to them and mixed into the mortar? Will it weaken or hurt the curb if I do this?
3. Since I formed my curb a year ago
I fergit....this is the same mortar as that used in forming my shower pan, right? I think its called "fat mud"? I guess I can look this one up again...just thot I could save some time.
