With 10-years-plus experience in many industries, I'm a quick, thorough study on all subjects and a strong relationship builder. Detail oriented and big-picture conscious, my creative, strategic, writing, project management, budgetary, and international skills are success driven.

*** Outlook:

Ned,

I noted the AK positions in this week's JOTW. I think there is an new opening in AK that you might have overlooked. More than likely communications skills are a must and helicopter sniping skills are desirable but not required.

(I didn't overlook anything. I can see Alaska from my patio.)

*** Do you have that special place you like to get away to for a respite from summer?

Send me your pics and I’ll post at the “Your Very Next Step” website (http://www.yourverynextstep.com/) under the category of “Where I'd rather be…”.

How about you?

See where Heather Murphy would rather go to beat the Arizona heat. Can you say Banff?

*** Baza:

There’s a new “supermarket” in my old hometown that caters to Russians and Eastern Europeans. Baza has a wide selection of meats (Moscow salami, Talinan salami, Hungarian Salami, Estonian Salami…), smoked fish, breads and other familiar items to people who at one time had to wait in line for toilet paper. They have that, too. Neil Young’s “Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World” was playing on the in-store music system when it was abruptly cut off and replaced by “Cossack Muzak” (my term, not their’s).

The website doesn’t tell you much: http://bazaboston.com/index.html

With the exception of lunch, all events are free of charge. Lunch is $5.00 for SNA members, $8.00 for non-members.
