Whatcha think?

I'm about to be unemployed. Whoohooo! I'm not really upset. I view it as an adventure. Who knows whats around the corner?
So I was talking to my kids today (both in their 20's) and they suggested opening a coffee shop with gluten free snacks. Good idea?
I hate cooking, baking and kitchen work. Why would I want to go into a business that involved this stuff?
I love animals.
Doggie day care?
Sadly, not a good idea. Although I live with three dogs (not all mine), 2 cats and a parrot. I'm allergic to anything with fur. :(
So, I'm thinking what do I love best? Writing & Art.
So now I'm researching grants to open up an art gallery for local artists. I want to give the locals a place to display their work and maybe get some press.
Anyone have any ideas on this? Have you ever applied for a grant? Ever recieved one?
Help! I'm in uncharted territory here!

Goodness, I have NO idea. But good luck! I've always been told there's lots of money in grant writing, if you have the knack ...
