    Today I was determined to conquer the RSS feed and get it on her from our TWITTER account.  I tried everything from a our URL to making up URLs that I thought would work.  After much research, trial and error I finally got the RSS feed for Twitter to work.  Now I just have to figure out how to get it to update to my most current post.  When it finally worked it posted an entry from a week ago even though I have posted almost daily since that time.  Something else to figure out.  Small Business you keep me on my toes.  Enjoy the site, look around and don't forget to provide feedback so we ca
