Howdy everyone,

Are you ready for a FReepathon?

The state of our FR is strong!

Our big legal bill is now paid off and our budgetary requirements are now reduced. For the first time in our history, our monthly donations are now bringing in more than 50% of our quarterly budget! Thanks to our generous membership and the settlement with the City of Fresno, we now have a comfortable cash buffer and should have no problems meeting our coming tax payments and other obligations.

I've recalculated our estimated budget requirements for the remainder of the year and have posted them here:

https://secure.freerepublic.com/donate/budget

We just completed the first loop of our nationwide tour and we had a great time! We traveled through eleven states in three weeks and FReeped with, met with and dined with FReepers in ten cities and from at least a dozen chapters. It's great to see all our old friends again and to meet new ones. Joining a gathering of FReepers is just like going a family reunion. Very warm and friendly and just like home. Thank you all so much for your gracious hospitality and friendship!

We hope to visit all fifty states and most of our chapters within the next year or so. We hope to visit our LA Chapter on the 1st of August to tour the Reagan Library. We hope to visit our San Diego Chapter sometime this month to welcome home the USS Ronald Reagan. We're also planning a Pacific Northwest Tour in August. In January, we're planning a trip across the South and down into Florida and then up the Eastern Coast to Washington, DC for the Free Republic George W Bush Inaugural Ball II!! Woo hoo!!

Well, with the war in Iraq all but concluded, the trial of the Butcher of Iraq about to start, and the election season heating up, I'm sure that FR is going to be THE place to be to get the very latest in news and conservative discussion in the coming months.

Thank you FReepers for making FR the premier conservative forum on the Internet!

Looking forward to the coming campaign season! Good luck to all and may the very best people be chosen to lead our great nation!

Thank God for our successes thus far in the war for freedom and may He guide us through to complete victory over tyranny and terrorism.

Thank you and may God bless you all.

Jim

Hi Jim! Guess what? I have INCREASED MY MONTHLY just for this FReep-a-thon. Do you think any other FReepers will make good use of their blessings in this booming economy and follow my lead?

Always proud to contribute to a WORTHY cause,

StrictTime

Now that is just damn amazing!!!

Well it's not a spring cleaning .. just the normal everyday cleaning

I have a vacuum cleaner on every floor .. so I don't have to lug it up and down the stairs .. same with cleaning products

If a dish, bowl, pot, whatever can't be cleaned in a dish washer .. I don't use it.

I started buying the wrinkle free shirts, so I don't iron the hubby's shirts and if I have to iron .. I send it to the dry cleaners around the corner .. gotta keep the economy going ya know :0)

I moved the computer to the kitchen .. so I stopped burning dinner

Oh and the most import part .. tell the kids to pick up their crap or I'll vacuum it up or throw it out

After a couple times .. they picked up the hint that I meant what I said *L*

Hi Glock!

Much, much better, thanks -- almost normal.

Still wearing the collar and taking the nerve pills, but no surgery anticipated.:-)

How are things with you and the family (and the dogs)?

Sounds like you've got a great system worked out.

I've got one also - I only have one floor and no carpets..........no extra anything!!!!!

The diswasher will be coming soon.........I've already designed the extra cabinet so I can put in a built in one - which is majorly less expensive than a protable one.

The only thing I miss about the townhouse we sold last year was the extra closet space. I learned to do with a whole lot less!!!!

That's great news, Rotti.

We're doing good... spending lots of time in the mountains, fihsing, it's been really mild start of summer, so we've been out enjoying it. The dawgs are doing fine, too.

We only have one pine tree left, so the black lab really has to scrounge to find a pine cone these days. Big dawg is still, well, big. We put him on a diet of low-carb mailmen, and he's down to about 155. Our Joe Cocker spaniel has perfected being underfoot, without being squished. Makes for some interesting impromptu dancing when it's dark :o)

A friend of mine just bought a single home near here and she was saying the same thing .. but with a few adjustments, she managed to get things to fit in the closets

Hey Glock .. I need help

It's a looooooong story .. but the short version is .. I had a spywear thingy on my computer .. took a week to get them all off

But in the process of doing so .. I also somehow turned off my ability to see animated graphics

How do I turn it back on??

Could it be my Zone Alarm that is blocking it?
