Sounds more to me like they are trying to get targeted marketing leads for matresses in Arlington Hts.

i have done focus research for focus scope, it's not always a bad gig. They pay you to sit for an hour. Sometimes it worth while, other times it's not. THe last one I did was for a technology we use at work, it wasn't work related, and it was after hours, $250 for an hour of my time. It was worth it to me.

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right
