We're Almost There: First Quarter '03 FReepathon Now Underway .. Thread 7

.... ...
The Free Republic first quarter '03 FReepathon is now underway!

Our goal for this fundraiser is the same as last quarter: $65,000. We have about $4,000 per month coming in from monthly donors so we will need to raise approx $53,000 to hit the target.
The funds raised through these fundraisers are used to pay our operating costs. Free Republic operates on an approximate $260,000 annual budget (breakdown here) and all funds are provided by donations from FReepers and Lurkers.

Thank you all very much for your continued support.
P.S. We are planning to make FreeRepublic.com email addresses available as a thank you to all who donate at least once per year. This new feature should be ready to go within a few days. We will post a notice and a link for donors to setup their FR email address as soon as it's ready.
Donate to FR and help us keep the lights on for the best political forum on the NET!

Some Dare Call It Art!

Artists Christo (L) and Jeanne-Claude listen to remarks at a press conference in New York on January 22, 2003 where they discussed 'The Gates,' a public work of art consisting of 7,500 gates bearing hanging saffron-colored cloth lining approximately 23 miles of pedestrian paths in Central Park in New York. 'The Gates' will be displayed for two weeks in February 2005. A rendering of the project is displayed behind the artists. (Peter Morgan/Reuters)

I got this in an email so I don't know if it's true ..

Here are some of the classic questions that were asked of the Sydney Olympic Committee via their Web site, and the witty answers that go with them.

Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia? I have never seen it rain on TV, so how do the plants grow? (UK)

A: Upwards, out of the ground, like the person who asked this question, who themselves will need watering if their IQ drops any lower...

Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA)

A: Depends on how much beer you've consumed...

Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney - can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)

A: Sure, it's only three thousand miles, so you'll need to have started about a year ago to get there in time for this October...

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Australia? (Sweden)

A: And accomplish what?

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia? (UK)

A: Why bother? Use your fingers like the rest of us...

Q: Do tents exist in Australia? (Germany)

A: Yes, but only in sporting supply stores, peoples' garages, and most national parks...

Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in Australia? (France)

A: Yes. At Christmas.

Q: Can I drive to the Great Barrier Reef? (Germany)

A: Sure, if your vehicle is amphibious.

Q: Are there killer bees in Australia? (Germany)

A: Not yet, but we'll see what we can do when you get here.

Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney and is milk available all year round? (Germany)

A: Nope, only on Tuesdays LOL.

Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Australia who can dispense rattlesnake serum. (USA)

A: I love this one...there are no rattlesnakes in Australia.

Q: Which direction is North in Australia? (USA)

A: Face North and you should be about right.

Q: Will I be able to speek English most places I go? (USA)

A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.

Somehow I even manage to mess up cut & paste sometimes. I usually (slowly) type it in. And then have to look at my cheat sheet to figure out what I did wrong LOL.

Good heavens! And I thought Mimi from The Drew Carey Show was hideous. This is a woman? Yikes!

Artists Christo (L) and Jeanne-Claude listen to remarks at a press conference in New York on January 22, 2003 where they discussed 'The Gates,' a public work of art consisting of 7,500 gates bearing hanging saffron-colored cloth lining approximately 23 miles of pedestrian paths in Central Park in New York.

And they got paid for this???

Hmmmm I think I need to start a new career

No apologies needed to me!!!!!!!!!!!

I may be the one making the apologies - I'm not sure how much longer I can last.

It was well after 4am when I crawled into bed and got called to the phone at 7:30 - and actually functioned as a coherent person on a live radio program at 8:30.

I would like to go back to about 5pm Tuesday and wake up at 5pm on thursday - I want to forget today altogether!!!!
