Wish you were there.........

I had to laugh -- I just realized with all the postings of 'Postcards from Paradise' I sent during the Holistic Holiday at Sea the last week of March, I never gave my blog followers a glimpse of the actual snail mail postcard designed to share with my fellow voyagers while onboard.

You can refer to the March archived posts to learn more of what I wrote home about--body-mind-spirit --
So -- TADAAH! Here it is-- the front side -- designed by my mentor, The Techno Granny of the 'burgh...very soon to be awarded the prestigious American Business Stevie Award in NYC. Here's what I learned about this special honor:

More than 2,700 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Corporate Environmental Responsibility Program of the Year.

Joanne Quinn-Smith's PositivelyPittsburghLiveTM Talkcast is competing as a finalist in the Web, Talkcast, and Blog category for Media.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit entries,public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than six-hundred executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The event will benefit Oceana (, the largest international organization focused on ocean conservation. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network. As one of the finalists, the creative staff of PositivelyPittsburghLiveTM Talkcast will be attending and also covering the event and spread the good news about Pittsburgh. PositivelyPittsburghTM Radio and TV goes to New York City.

In 2007, Joanne Quinn-Smith, aka, the TechnoGrannyTM and host of PositivelyPittsburghLiveTM Talkcast created an internet radio Talkcast which has evolved into a total product, the Positively Pittsburgh Live Alliance which includes
PositivelyPittsburghLiveTM Talkcast, PPL Blog, PositivePittsburghersTM Networking site and As a result of this unique first to market Community Talkcast, blog, networking site and online community magazine, she was awarded the 2009 National Small Business Administration Journalist of the Year Award. She became the first person to be honored for this award who totally used Social/New Media. is a syndicated Pittsburgh internet radio and TV network with accumulated national and international listeners of over 200,000.

The goal of PositivelyPittsburghLiveTM (PPL) is to disseminate only GOOD NEWS about Pittsburgh, often topics that are missed by major media outlets. In this mission of the PPL Talkcast, Good News Reporter, Joanne Quinn-Smith has interviewed over 800 Positive Pittsburghers -- including me ---(see the Press Room link to the right) representing the best news about Pittsburgh. I'm looking forward to future joint projects with Joanne.

Joanne hosts a weekly PositivelyPittsburghLive internet radio talk show and podcast, net-cast live, where listeners can text questions to her from their computers anywhere in the world. And potentially hundreds of people can call in to talk in Joanne’s radio-talk-show-meets- conference-call roundtable format.

Jo Ann Forrester, syndicated radio host and Creative Director of PPLMag says, "Since 2007, Joanne Quinn-Smith and PositivelyPittsburghLive Talkcast have been the unofficial Pittsburgh Good News Ambassadors. Long before G-20, Joanne was touting Pittsburgh’s laurels to the world." Those of you who've known me long before internet consciousness, won't be suprised that Joanne and I found one another and are a dynamic duo!
