    I'm not posting this ; but just responding to your question. LL Bean, a legendary co. in Maine (and in the United States), was my exclusive customer as an IBM rep from 1982-1993 when I retired. Unfortunately they are not a publicly traded co. They are the outdoor gear pioneers vender, founded in 1912. See They gained fame for being open 24 hrs a day, every day. I'm 75 yrs old & my father took me there when I was 12 on our way North on a hunting trip (my first & last). Little that I know that I would become a part of success. When I was there, Leon Gorman, LL's grandson was president. The company was completely family onwed and that still true. I was there when they crossed the 1B mark in sales. We were handling 10, 000 calls per hour. I have dozens of hilarious anecdotes gleaned from my time there.

    hi winner 69
    i seem to be learning the hard way that it is never a good idea to have shares in a foreign country unless you can keep up with all the news. there is virtually no discussion of bb stuff on sharetrader -- is this because forum posters are all too sensible to have an interest in such dodgy shares? am somewhat paralysed at the moment -- any advice? cheers scamper.
