Really?? I'm not sure if they have anyone in the front line with anything other than TEE/TAFE pass score??.... I'm sure if you have a BSc in anything, you are over-qualified to work in the "lower ranks".... :P

I hope they bring their video cameras so someone can interperate the discussion in simple words for them back in the office.

**I can feel another 'visit' coming on**.... No idea why..... :P

Give me a big spoon for stirring and call me a troll.... :P

Talk should be called Keeping of Live Food
Shrimp are handy for feeding cichlid juvies ;)
