Unfortunately i do not know too much if anything about being able to come to Canada from Australia to work. There are plenty of jobs in Western Canada - in particular in Saskatchewan and Alberta at the moment. Most restaurants are hiring in all categories as it is difficult to find people to work.
Please let me know any specifics of what kind of help you require and i will do what i can to find information and or contacts to help you come to Canada.
Just wanted to let you know that I have changed the name of the Portland Food Network to the Pacific NorthWest Food Network. I wanted to broaden the scope and geography of it all. There is a lot more going on than just Portland/Oregon. Invite your friends to the group and start posting. (I know it says portlandfoodnetwork, but I could not change that part)
HI Randy, I was just thinking about starting a book club group, so I'm glad to see you already have one going. I'm looking forward to reading your posts - lots of great ideas. I wrote my first blog, please take a look on my page - "The Power of Teddy Bears and Gift Cards". Take care, John
That's great Randy. You can email them as an attachment and we will upload to an appropriate category.
send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also please send me your city, state, zip, phone and company name and I'll get your listing up on our site.
My web company is asking that I optimize certain cities for our site, is it worth the money and if so, does it really get me to the top of the pages and categories? I will take your advice and get a blog going, but you have to promise to read it and comment, deal?
Thanks for getting back to me. Just about any content you wanted to provide would be fine. Much like your blog posts on this site-actually we could probably use them.
If you haven't visited my website as yet, please do. I would like to offer you a complimentary listing under consultants. www.restaurantresourcesonline.com.

Hello Randy, thanks for the articles you've been posting here. I'd be interested in talking with you about the use of social networking for restaurant marketing. My team is putting together a video series on web marketing for restaurants and we might be able to partner for one.
Hey Randy, thanks for responding. Well, let's just say it has been a roller coaster so far, but so exciting. Starting any business is tough and it just sucks you in. I have learned so far that you can do everything just right and that your website can look as great as you want it to look and do everything you want it to do, but if you don't know what the best way to market it, it does you no good. Go to www.restaurantconsulting101.com and check out the preview page. Do you have any ideas on how I can overcome this mountain of getting the "word" out there in cyperspace for this unique niche of independent restaurateurs, without having to spend a lot of money or better yet, no $ at all?
Hi, My name is Veronique and I am brand new to the site. I have found your specialties and interests very interesting as I am starting a new web based restaurant consulting business and I am right in the middle of trying to figure out how to take advantage of marketing using online applications to do so. Do you have any suggestions on how to try to get the word out?
Hi, Welcome to FohBoh. This is a very welcome site for all of us in hospitality. it brings all the different strings of the industry together to exchange views, ideas etc. I look forward to networking more widely and making many new friends.
You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
Privacy researcher Christopher Soghoian sees the landscape of government surveillance shifting beneath our feet, as an industry grows to support monitoring programs.
