To Federal Agencies: Please Give Me $$$

Not really sure what to write this week. It was pretty boring here. I am feverishly working on a grant for a Sept 15 deadline with a clinical collaborator who is crazy busy. We desperately need money so virtually all my efforts are going into grant writing. On a positive note, a local company is interested in collaboration and may give us some research $$, which will help, and I have drafts of our first two lab manuscripts sitting in my inbox, so a pretty good week, I guess. But truth is no matter how many papers I put out in the next few months, if more money doesn't come in we will be broke. Guess I should get back to writing.
