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!

The shaved cat photo: it looks like I need to find a new photo hosting service. *sigh* I'll see what I can do tomorrow morning. Maybe I can email it to you; it's on my hard drive, if you want to host it and post it. :)

Good morning, Glock.

Did you read the snow diary in #532? Very funny.

We used to live in New York and I always loved it when it snowed.

that's a hoot.
otoh, there's alot of truth hiding in there (yes, i've shoveled the roof; yes, the snow has broken beams that i've had to replace) anything over a couple feet makes me nervous now.

we've had a very mild and dry winter in utah this year... if it doesn't become a little more normal (read - occasional blizzard) we're going to be drinking mud (with dust sprinkles) this summer.

That lack of snow sounds familiar. It's another dry (though no longer mild) winter here in the land of cheese and beer.

Good morning, Fiddlstix. Thanks for breakfast.

I think your tag lines are very creative. I particularly liked:

I've only been enjoying FR for a short time, however I must say that I can hardly wait to sit down when I have a chance and check the posts. I've already made good friends here and just want to go on record telling you this is a delight.

God bless you, Jim. My check is on its way.
