As for the grant… On to Chris: “I guess I am not comfortable saying I SHOULD get the grant, but I’d certainly love to get it I work on Perling part time and I would really love to be able to work on it full time. I am trying to scrape some money together that will leave me secure financially for a few months and this would certainly help”.
