    Cool Whew! that's a relief!

    I am pleased to announce that I have completed the grant application 100%!

    I had to tune and tweak the narrative a few times and had the Chief proofread it. Being in front of a computer terminal for two days in my office at the "casa del fuego" as well as the 6 or so hours I put in at home in the late night hours, it got to the point where I couldn't recognize errors

    All's that's left to do is to submit it.. which will be donewhen I get back from a well needed and deserved vacation!

    congrats! I do not know how brian, kurt and the other gurus here do it. I am only doing 18 and it is about to drive me insane this year. I am working on narrative right now and UUGH is all I got to say. All of them are just as unique as the departments they belong to and it gets tedious after a while. My hats are off to those guys to do so many and through out the year. There is a special place in heaven for them I assure you!

    At least yours is threatening to divorce you now. Mine is going to wait until after payday and claim neglect.

    I've been on 7am-2am since March 12th. Last count 502 with 12 more new ones on the desk and a bigger pile of promises. 128 submitted, 129 on deck, about to send 30 more out for review/approval. I could sell my story to Folgers and V8. I've lost 14lbs since coming off the trail. Amazing what happens when you stop eating takeout & drive-thru.
