I received a letter in the mail today from the State of California Board of Equalization that for some reason struck me as really's the heading and first paragraph:

"Review of Accounts Reporting No Sales"

"Our computer record of your account indicates that, during the year noted above, you had no sales or other business activity which requires you to hold a seller's permit. Therefore, this letter is to inform you that we are considering cancellation of your permit to reduce costs both to you and the State."

Considering I've been rejected by (fill in the blank) number of greeting card companies during the past week, I guess it shouldn't surprise me that even though I wasn't trying to sell the State of California greeting cards, even they rejected me. I'm just really glad that my sense of humor never fails me :)

By the way, State of California, the reason I've had no sales is because I changed my marketing tactics and I'm leading the business in another direction...and I do have some promising leads, so there!

Lucky for you, you will no longer be able to see any Tweets from me on Twitter. For the past two or three weeks I have been unable to Tweet. Personally, I think they must have decided that I am far too boring to take up precious megabytes or whatever technology it takes to post tweets. I could say it was their loss but, unfortunately, I think I would have to agree with them :)
Don't worry, Twitter...I'm not offended. I never liked to Tweet anyway and never fully comprehended how to use it to build my business. So, instead of me quitting quit me first. C'est la vie!
