Australian IT – Metal company mines CSC skill (Ben Woodhead, AUGUST 22, 2006) Not a good day for BHP/Bluescope/OneSteel shareholders. Personally if I were a customer I’d be finding an alternative supplier, but I may just be bitter, twisted and disinfranchised. Disclaimer – I have never worked for CSC

Cahors – Chateau Quattre – 1996

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

les Granges des Papes – Cotes Du Rhone – 2003

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006
