Joey asked Pauline’s Gifts for information about the 6th annual Small Business Saturday and a list of specials. She was an early adapter. Here it is, and thanks Pauline!
“In 2011 the Senate unanimously supported Small Business Saturday, and in 2012 all 50 states had participants. This one day event is bringing awareness of the importance in supporting your Local Small Businesses and giving many small businesses a way to promote at no cost to them. If you are an American Express merchant you are able to use the tools made available to you by AMEX. Many of us receive banners, balloons, postcards, reusable bags, and lots of other swag to use for our businesses. Even those who do not take AMEX are able to utilize the promotion working with a Neighborhood Champion. These champions obtain the materials and are able to share with other businesses in their neighborhood. In 2016 there were over 6,700 Neighborhood Champions in the country. Small business owners embrace the day. Through their own promotional efforts small business owners generated an estimated $15.4 billion dollars on Small Business Saturday in 2016.” GMG search pulls up posts about Small Business Saturday in 2012. Some of the 2017 GMG posts: Bridgette’s post, Donna’s post, Kim’s post about PRESENT, and GMG podcast (timestamped!)

Kate started working out using the Beachbody Workout. She feels great, loves the products and the workouts and that’s why she became a Beachbody Coach. I can attest to her being totally motivated by the workout and the challenges and most importantly the results. I’m 100% convinced that it works big time. If you would like to talk to her about it here’s the link to find out more.

While walking this morning at Stage Fort Park with Elynn Kroger, we encountered this beautiful snowy owl. A little later, I ran into Peggy Russell from Pop Gallery, who also had seen him, but hadn’t been able to get a shot of him. This is for you Peggy. Merry Christmas. What a special treat on Christmas morning.
Of course it never fails that I encounter something magical when I carry my chumpy little pocket camera. I wish I’d brought the nice one Paul Frontiero gave me, as I had originally intended. Lesson. Never second-guess your first impulse.
