Quote of the Day - Be neither too remote nor too familiar. - Prince Charles, Prince of Wales

Needed in Wales - Jobs and Opportunities

My great-grandparents came over from Wales in 1896. They came over on the boat. In steerage on the White Star Line.

I found the actual ticket among my dad's things when he died. It's now in a frame, with their photographs. It's a bit of a memorial.

Needless to say, I have an affinity for Wales. Recently, I ran into Chris Banning, with the Welsh Development Agency. They have grants and funding available to companies wishing to locate there.

The agency is also designed to bring jobs to Wales, and at the same time provide something more than the jobs bring to Wales. Loyalty, stability and productivity. You know, the kind of dedication that is usually only found in the Midwest. Yes, the Southeast, Northeast and West, too. They're not trying to take jobs out of the US, but enable companies that are looking for an international presence to find one in Wales.

As a third-generation immigrant, I know the work ethic that was instilled in me. Somehow, I believe that that ethic is still around, and available in Wales.

At least that what my grandparents and parents taught me.
