I think this cast came out in early October and things have certainly gone downhill since then.
I received this nice note from one of my www.LinkedIn.com connections
" I just wanted to wish you a HAPPY HOLIDAY and spread a positive vibe for 2009.
2008 was a tough year for many, so I am extending a helping hand where ever I can.
Lets try to stay in touch more often, take the time to ask "how may I help you" and do our best to deliver.
I think we need to keep pounding that message. Don't be a barrier, be an asset.
