t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


"The Big Idea" Lives On!

Yes, The Big Idea with ******* on the ***** network lives on. Not physically, It appears the NYC portion of the show will not be filmed, and the whole segment will not broadcast, but in spirit it lives on. And this is the most important! I figured from the first phone call the day before I was supposed to leave it wasn't going to happen. So it has been quite a while since I was worried about it. Really it took about a day to get over...even though I still think it was lame. However...the good news is, yesterday the big Exec from the major retailer I was supposed to pitch my idea to emailed me!

Yep. He contacted the producers on his own to get my info. It appears he did not want to wait around for the silly show. He wants Cap Trappers on his shelves! (So you see these reality shows aren't exactly what they seem. The retailer knew exactly who the companies were that would be pitching to them. ) I don't know if he did this with all 4of the companies who were supposed to appear on the segment, but who cares. It is definitely a good thing for us! We still get our big shot and a huge break!

On a side note...remember that sleuthing post from Monday? Well, this retailer, and specifically this individual was one targeted retailer. So coincidentally enough, he will receive his samples a lot sooner than he is anticipating! It is funny how things work out, is it not? There is definitely someone watching out for us.
