As it's st Georges day, I was wondering if we had a patron saint of contractors

I nominate St Goar (http://www.catholic-saints.info/roman-catholic-saints-a-g/saint-goar.htm)

first of all, because he is a go-er. that's good, he gets things done
second, he shut himself away in a little cell, that's good - WFH. just like us
third, he became an Oracle and a miracle throughout the land. yep - that's us
last, offered job in senior management and turned it down

maybe we should have one for agents and one for permies



:rolleyes:

For Agents may I suggest St Monica - the patron saint of alcoholics and disappointing children :D

St Murphy, whose wondrous works are the reason most of us are making money to begin with.

He lived near Trier and there is in fact a place called St Goar in that area; it's an area where some of the best white wines in the world are made. Unfortunately, some of the worst white wines in the world are made there too.
