I had a post planned for today on Microcredit, and no, that is not the percentage of people's souls owned by Microsoft, nor how small your credit line is in the midst of the current credit scare. It's actually a very interesting concept about how small loans can stimulate an entire economy. I haven't had the time to research it with a sick family and the Virtual Book Club last night (which my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed), so I will put that post up on Monday. Feel free to read yesterday's post, which is long enough for two days (and really felt like two intertwined stories by the end) .
Here's a brief update (which I also did not get up yesterday) on A Whole New World, which I first wrote about two weeks ago. The bid process was extended an extra week, we can only assume because people were not getting in their bids. We had our entire bid in by the deadline, though, and have spent most of this week feeling like we're afraid to tinker with it and just wish it had already been finalized. We really hope this means wonderful things for our business, but we won't know for a month just how much of our bid we get awarded. "Hurry up and wait" is now into full-on "wait and see" mode.
Tomorrow I plan to post an email (with his approval) Todd sent me a few weeks back after his first half marathon. I know it took a lot of hard work and dedication to run it, and I wanted to put that on our blog.
