Hello RJ
Greetings from RJ at Inventive Productions.
November has been a wonderful and great month.
Here are a few notable experiences from November 2007:

5.  We are happy to welcome some great new Producers to our team.  Mitchell Pickett, Elana Bean, and Glenda Brown.
6.  RJ interviewed Angus Robson a former restaurant owner who many years ago was a child in London during the German Blitz in WWII.  We are creating Angus' incredible Video biography.  Angus served in the British military during the Korean War, he worked for the Airlines and lived in Australia, New Guinea, and rode a train through Siberia.  I can't wait to see our finished Video biography on the life and times of Angus Robson.
