Yes. You are a small business owner. You are one of the few people in your community who does not rely on a paycheck to survive and feed your family. Your money comes from your own efforts. If business is great, your pay is great. However; if business is bad, your pay can be non-existent!

Skype has announced that it has included Facebook integration with it's latest release. You can now communicate with your Facebook friends directly from within the Skype interface.
This may be a big boost for Skype. Most people only use Skype for communicating with their friends or family that also has Skype. Now, you can communicate with friends even if they don't have the Skype application themselves. This should boost the amount of time that people spend using Skype.
Here is video that explains the new updates.

I just read a very great article about the non-profit organization that we have partnered with for Thanksgiving this year. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper, Hosea Feed The Homeless fed over 15, 000 people last year for Thanksgiving. Now you can see why we chose them to work with this year.
The organization also expects there to be more demand this year over last year. With the current state of the economy we can understand why this would be true.
Let's all "dig deep" this year and try to help those who are in need. We are attempting in our own humble way to help. Will you stand with us?
