Many of you supported my company Sunscribe in our quest to compete for a grant from Chase in their Mission Main Street program in October 2014. You waited patiently with us, counting down the days until January when the 20 winners would be announced.
Tis bittersweet news: We discovered today we are not a recipient of a $150,000 Mission Main Street Grant. Thank you again, to all our voters and supporters!
While we are sad we didn’t make it into the finale, we had a great run! Our team ran the race, chins to the wind, and now we are highly motivated for the next one.
We wish those businesses selected much success, and look forward to seeing many great things from these companies as 2015 unfolds. Full list posted on our website…
To say I am distracted is an understatement. I can describe what I’ve done: pour coffee in the cat’s water bowl, tuck the milk in the pantry next to the Rice Chex, and then squeeze Colgate Multi-whitening onto my hairbrush, and you have an idea of my morning.
Now the level has risen to major irritation. And I suppose that’s what the governor of the great state of South Carolina feels on her second inaugural morning. Major irritation. If you haven’t heard, the governor cut our state’s poet laureate duties – Marjory Wentworth caused an uproar with her writing – because she wrote a poem about the not-so-smiling history of this state. Read her inaugural poem without the inaugural audience at WRVO’s site…
Whew, I feel better just sharing this with more people! Exactly what I need to do. And so do you. Regardless of your political, poetic or other opinions, please get the word out that South Carolina clicked the clock hands back. When the world is dealing with huge issues, the foremost one on the state’s political agenda is an inaugural poem.
The thoughts and opinions are my own. But I love company, so leave a comment to let me know we were hanging out for a few minutes today.
