Subject: How Many Mentors Do You Have? # 334
To:Benefits2001JnT@aol.com
Good Morning Freedom Fighters and Truth Seekers,

It is off to the flu vaccine clinic in a few minutes to get my shot this morning.  I am taking some reading material with me to pass the time.  I am taking a new book with me to explore.  The Leadership Secrets of Santa Clause should be very special.

Hope you will spend some time this weekend reading through your voters guide.  The election is just around the corner and its impact will be very significant.  I was visiting with several other Viet Nam vets on Thursday at the Career Fair.  I will relate to you some of their comments in tomorrow's issue of Essays on Excellence.

Have a restful and inspiring weekend.
