As a lawyer
representing new ventures and small businesses, people
sometimes ask me where can they find out how to start a
business, how to obtain financing, how to find good business
partners, how to structure a business, how to obtain

bookstores and the library. But this is the

which are listed below.

“Let’s face it, there’s only one thing you can clean with
– from a
C|Net review of the Toto Washlet S300, a bolt on
bidet for the executive washroom. You will note
that this quote no longer appears on the C|Net site.
I'm sure someone got called on the carpet for permitting
this quote up in the first place.
