Recently, I've had lots of interaction with people who want to come to the US from India and elsewhere for jobs in HR. I finally put together a piece that I could send out.

Wishing you and yours a very happy Easter. My husband bought prime rib so we are trying something different from the traditional ham this year. My online friends are baking carrot cakes and cupcakes and hot cross buns. How about you?
