Linked In has many job postings this week!

If you're seeking employment, and you're not already on LinkedIn, www.linkedin.com , I suggest you create a profile right away. I just checked in and there were nearly a dozen jobs posted within my groups/connections, and many were in the Torrance/Santa Monica/Los Angeles area.

Door to door solicitors again -

Residents - I know most of you know this, but some of our friends and relatives need to be reminded!  There is a slow return of door to door magazine sales and contractors pitching their "wares".
