Roman Polanski, no sympathy for the devil

Hello everyone;

Glad to see things picking up out there...

Even though this post is not inline with Human Resources it is inline with being HUMAN.

The Serendipitous Nature of our Business!

Every so often something magical happens, no doubt the non-believer chalks it up to "coincidence"....
