A Note from Cindi
What did you do this summer? I went on a road trip from California to Florida and back. My daughter graduated from University of Arkansas with a BA in Journalism. She was accepted into the Disney College Program in Orlando and I drove with her from Fayetteville, Arkansas to Orlando, Florida and stopped to see the fun sights in between. Then her dog and I made the trip back to California (no pets in the Disney housing!)

A Message from the President
This 2014 SemiCon West was a great show for us here at KPS, it’s always been a great place to network with friends and make new ones. But this year I noticed that the enthusiasm was back at the show and there were a lot more attendee’s. It was nice to meet the new Companies that attended this year.
I have been a Recruiter for over 25 years and I have been talking to people about the elements of relocation. One of those elements is someone’s family and the age of the children. Many of my clients tell me that they are “Empty Nesters”, meaning that now that they have grown children who have moved away making it much easier to relocate, if a suitable job was to come available. I now know the highs and lows of being an “Empty Nester”. My baby girl, Katie, is now a Frosh at San Diego State University, (Go Aztecs Water Polo!) My wife and I are now living alone in what seems to be a much larger house. It’s not the same without the pitter patter of those little feet banging around and creating so much noise! Then there is the unwelcome anxiety of separation. It’s been tough for both of us but I really feel that it’s the best things for everyone. To those who have gone through this before, I salute you.
The last Quarter of the year is always the busiest so don’t be surprised to see a note in your inbox from me asking for help on a search assignment.

A Note from Danna
The best time to start saving money? Ten years ago.
The second-best time? Today.
Want 2015 to be the year you turn things around? Four simple tactics can make all the difference.
Step 1: You need a goal
Step 2: Pay yourself first
Step 3: Automate
Step 4: Track your expenses
Yield: 2 loaves or approximately 24 muffins
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease and flour two 8×4 inch loaf pans, liberally. (See those pictures of the cakes inside their non-stick pans? Yup, they’re pretty much hanging out in there for the time being.) Alternately, line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Mix in oil and sugar, then zucchini and vanilla.
Combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder and salt, as well as nuts, chocolate chips and/or dried fruit, if using.
Stir this into the egg mixture. Divide the batter into prepared pans.
Bake loaves for 60 minutes, plus or minus ten, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Muffins will bake far more quickly, approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
