Here are some Mother's Day resources: http://special.msn.com/network/05mothersday.armx?GT1=6393
Here's the Mother's Day poem Lisa composed to honor Dee:
You're five foot six and I'm five foot two
But that's not why I look up to you.
Yours is the face that one should see
When looking up "love" in the dictionary.

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY - Last Wednesday, it was my turn to host "SCORE Radio" on WVOX AM 1460. The show is sponsored by SCORE: Counselors to America's Small Business, Chapter 306 and hosted by a team of volunteer business experts. We broadcast every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 1:00-1:30 pm, Eastern Time. Listeners outside of broadcast range online can listen live online at www.wvox.com or hear and share by phone at 914.636.0110.
My guest--mother, children's book author and Wall Street trader, Jen Gross--helped celebrate the United Nations Decade of World Literacy (2003-2012), National Take Your Child to Work Day (April 28, 2005) and Mother's Day (May 8, 2005). She discussed her book, A Visit Up & Down Wall Street, the process of co-authoring it with gal pal, Jen Hoch, and the illustrations by her mom, Margaret Gross. The attractive, colorful, hardcover book is the first of a series to be published by Harry and Stephanie Books and is targeted for kids aged 4-10. Younger kids (like Jen's 3 year old son, Harry) enjoy it too, when someone reads it to them. I daresay older kids (like I) also find it enjoyable and informative.
Here are some useful resources for writers and small business owners:
- Arts and Business Council
- Foundation Center - funding and grantmaking resources
- National Endowment for the Arts
- National Endowment for the Humanities
- National Writers Union
