It's rare that you meet someone who inspires you to think differently and take action. Moreover, does the same thing to your teen daughters. This past year one woman did. As many of you know I was one of the 18 million who came out and lent a hand to Senator Hillary Clinton's candidacy. So once again when the campaign asked - I was honored to be one of Hillary Clinton's hosts at an all star event here in New York.
Join me and Hillary at Hiro on Monday September 22. Go to http://www.hillaryclinton.com/hiro to RSVP. When you RSVP please make sure to select my name "Joanna Pena-Bickley" as your host in the drop down. The event is shaping up to be a fun evening with our favorite senator!
If you cannot attend you can still make a contribution. We could use your help in paying down Hillary's campaign debt at http://www.hillaryclinton.com/hiro (When you make your donation please use the drop down to select my name as your host)
I look forward to you joining me and Hillary in an evening that will help retire Hillary's campaign debt.

What could they have done to make their offering better? 7. Is there a real difference in satellite vs. digital cable? 7a. If so what? 8. What is the most important part of home entertainment? 9. Does the extension of Home entertainment to mobile devices play a role in your evaluation of cable providers? 9a. If so which mobile or entertainment devices? 10. Can you give me an example of a nightmare cable installation or customer service story?
