Can you make a small donation?

I couldn’t bear to include a request for donations in the mailing I sent out earlier today, but am compelled to make this request to our visitors nonetheless, so here goes. is a labor of love, but it’s a labor of love that costs money to produce (web hosting costs over the past four years have totaled $850.00—Squarespace is the best, and workers are worth their wages). Although the single most important contribution visitors can make is providing information to the site, to be dispersed to others via the site, it is also possible to help the site financially. You can make an outright contribution via PayPal (click here, or on the button below), or you can have a little fun and purchase items from that are linked to on the site. Or you might find some trinkets of interest on our on-line store at (c’mon, you really do need a new mousepad. Have you looked at yours lately?).

In any case, I’d grateful for any support you can provide. Even a few visitors tossing in a donation of $15.00 dollars could help fund the hosting costs for half a year.

Thanks to everyone for visiting, and for their support.
