I think that would move things along pretty quickly for us.

ok people - get those letters out and email everyone you know in Florida and pm all the people that you know on CC in Florida.



I called my attorney this morning and am waiting for a call back. He thinks the idea is very feasible but it is not his area of expertise and is going to refer me to one that can at least point us directly where we need to go.

Hopefully, I hear back today and can call and get an appointment for a consultation quickly.

hahaha - you crack me up!!

For those of you that live in the Jacksonville area (Fernandina and St Augustine included) please visit the local ICES chapter website and PLEASE join us for our next meeting www.sagnfl.com. If you don't live in the Jax area please contact your local cake club/ICES chapter to reach out to those not on CC.

I have not heard anything from any of the letters that I sent out - but I am not suprised or discouraged by that given that they are currently in session. I will resend my letters at the end of May if I haven't heard anything and I will get my friends and family to start sending out the non-baker letters of support.

I didn't hear back yesterday...I guess he was in court in the afternoon...so I called back this morning and talked to his assistant. She said to call her back before 5 p.m. today (he's going to be in and out all day again) and she would have a referral for me. So that's all I have for right now...dang it!!

I've been handing out non-baking letters with stamped envelopes to anyone I think would send them in.

I'm also trying to get in touch with an acquaintance in the area (friend of a friend type thing) who started classes and baking recently and has some legal ties. She's really into cakes and I'll refer her to this site and this thread. I'd be surprised if she wouldn't be interested.

does any one any new updates...
post #115 of 238
Well, No new updates for me - except FINALLY I can actually see what I'm posting!! =) Thats why I gave it a few daze b4 I came back!

Still anxiously awaiting to hear what or if anything cakedoll might have found out!

Still havent heard back from the countless calls and emails I did earlier this week .. but since they are all in session right now, I really didnt expect too. Like Janel allready said .. If I dont hear from someone soon .. Im emailing and calling all them again at the end on this month icon_smile.gif
They might put up the bill just to shut me up!!! hahaha

So the answer to your question rockytop is ........... NOPE! Sorry icon_sad.gif

That doesnt surprise me at all! There was a post on page 1 or 2 that said something to the affect that we needed to be careful so's not to step on any toes in the process ... I personally can "see" why they wouldnt want home bakers to be licensed BUT I also think that it not only would it be good for state revenue BUT for our 'own' economic recession we're ALL in - bakery's included! Hopefully there will be ppl out there who will support our efforts - for the better of everyone!!! *whew* I feel better!! icon_wink.gif

And Janel getting the local ICES chapter involved was awesome!! They have a LARGE voice and thats JUST what we need!! LOUD MOUTHS!! hahaha
