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!

You're right that we don't have much snow left. We've only had a total of about four inches so far this year and that was all in little tiny trace amounts. Then it's been pretty warm for us in December so we had a brown Christmas.

A trace last night, but that's about it for snow. It's cold enough now, (and has been for about 3 days), the ice fishermen are happy again.

And the snowmobilers are not!

I'm west of Minneapolis about 15-20 miles. The west end of Lake Minnetonka in Mound. Where did you live when you were here?

Alexandria originally. When I moved to the Twin Cites area, my old stomping ground was out by Mound and in St. Louis Park, Bloomington in the late 70s and early 80s. I had a Marine buddy who was from and lived in Mound so we would always hang out at the bars or the lake. Lake Minnetonka is a great spot for boaters.

My brother in law has been doing pretty well with the crappies. That I miss. Shovelling out a driveway , I don't miss ;-)

I graduated from high school in Bloomington.

Yes, this is a beautiful part of the metro area. A "red" part of the state!

When you were stomping around Mound did you ever have the chance to eat at Al & Alma's? We live very near there on "The Island".

My dad lives in California now and he doesn't miss shoveling the driveway either ;)

Snow geese...hmmmmmm that's a tough question for a girl that doesn't know the difference between a goose and a duck LOL!

I know the pheasant hunters were out in force this fall and there are deer EVERYWHERE. But snow geese, sorry, I'm totally clueless on that one!

I Drink Alone

words: George Thorogood

I drink alone, yeah,
with nobody else
I drink alone, yeah,
with nobody else
You know when I drink alone,
I prefer to be by myself

Every morning just before breakfast,
I don't want no coffee or tea
Just me and good buddy Wiser,
that's all I ever need
'Cause I drink alone, yeah,
with nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone,
I prefer to be by myself

The other night I laid sleeping,
and I woke from a terrible dream
So I caught up my pal Jack Daniel's,
and his partner Jimmy Beam
And we drank alone, yeah,
with nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone,
I prefer to be by myself

The other day I got invited to a party,
but I stayed home instead
Just me and my pal Johnny Walker,
and his brothers Black and Red
And we drank alone, yeah,
with nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone,
I prefer to be by myself

My whole family done give up on me,
and it makes me feel oh so bad
The only one who will hang out with me,
is my dear old granddad
And we drink alone, yeah,
with nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone,
I prefer to be by myself
