Thank you, Michael..It's Jo Lynne..sort of like Billy Joe Bob..the more names you have on the first line, the bigger the trailer. (OK, never owned one, but happened to get born below the Mason Dixon Line, but I still count as a SF native).

We have been building the structure for Guest First (www.guestfirstgroup.com) as I have been expanding the chef consultancy functions of the agency (will be up soon, I hope). Today we arranged for the old corporate chef for one of the cruise lines to take over the consulting chefs as well as the emergency chefs, as Howard Cummins continues to deal with our management recruiting. All and all it's been a challenging two months.

Thank you all for your comments. We have added a page of links to Howard Cummins space, Prohospitalitysearch.com, with links to many good recent articles about the industry, mostly from the management side. www.prohsospitalitysearch.com/links.html - please enjoy.

Hate to ask this, but we've met? Just asking. It's possible that I am just slipping a cog here.
