  • Half Way Through 2021 (2020 – a year to ‘remember’ AND forget at the same time!)

    2021 – I remember the excitement of ending 2020 (‘thank goodness that’s over!) and the hopeful way in which we entered 2021.  The pandemic is still in our (recent) memories.  Things seem to be opening up cautiously.  Some things are more open than...

  • We often ask potential candidates if they are ready for a change.

    We have had to ask ourselves that same question. January is that time, when it is natural to think about changes, starting with writing the new year--2020. And 2020 has already brought about several changes:  Our...
