Wishing you all a blessed and Happy New Year!!

But there will be a slight delay in starting our fundraiser. Having a bit of technical difficulty with our secure server certificate. It expired over the weekend and I was hoping John would have it updated before today. No such luck. And I haven't been able to reach him yet this morning to get a status update. Hopefully our FReepathon will be underway soon. Sorry about the delay.

Thank you all very much for your continuing support. Without you there would be no FR.

God bless.

Also, please be careful about posting copyrighted graphics to threads, especially in support of our fundraising efforts. Had to pull another one recently after receiving a copyright complaint.

Hope to get this FReepathon underway soon.

Thank you all very much and God bless you.

I get pics in a generic search so it’s hard to know where they came from.

It can be difficult to research. Political figures can be the worst.

Yep! I look for copyrights on the pic. Some have the cartoonists name. Should probably stop using political cartoons.

Remember the Obama skeet pic where the white hut warned to not modify the picture. There were more versions than I can count that came out immediately. LOL!

The first thing to do is look at the url. If it has ap, nyt, latimes etc or any other indication that it is from the FR copyright list [<---HotLink Yum] in it then it cannot be posted at FR.

Also if you are in doubt, do a google image search with keywords relating to the photo and check to see if the pic in question is there from a copyrighted source.

Tinypic/tinyurl, photobucket etc can be suspicious because many people will take copyrighted pictures and put them there to get around law. It's still illegal and can get FR in trouble.

Happy New Year!

We’ve got to keep the catnip in the utility room, in a cabinet, sealed in a Tupperware container so the *House Five* don’t get a hold of it.

Whut the heck is that?
About the only thing missing is a little parasol setting on top.

Vodka taste best when drank straight from the bottle, of course ya need a table or counter handy to slam your fist on after the first shot :)

There are some FReepers that could care less about this technical difficulty.

These are the FReepers that make regular monthly donations to FR through a debit to their checking account or what have you.

Some of these FReepers even contribute one dollar per day (or more!) to Free Republic.

I didn’t have the lid secured properly on the catnip once and left it on a table in the living room...Needless to say I had a mess to clean up and the kitties had a blast.
