I am passing this on from a friend on another list. If any of you know of
"harvesting" positions available for this person, please reply to "George"
in the original message toward the bottom. I have seen this sort of thing
posted on SANET in the past so I am hoping some of you may be able to help
George find what he wants.
Cheers to all
