interviews and just finished another one yesterday. I know the results of my
search would never have even been close to what they have been without your
advice and help. So Mr. Hal Flantzer, . . . .I just HAD to thank you because I
was in an interview the other day that lasted for about 3 hours and by the time
I listened to my voice messages, there were two calls from other interested
