I have been here for a while and use this site almost daily. I would like to make a donation to this site. However unless I have missed something I can not find the donation “Button” or a page I can go to to fill out the necessary information. I have read some other posts but still unable to find it.

It will be interesting to see if one of the site administrators responds. I found a link, but it appears to be dead. I’m guessing that the site is now a viable commercial enterprise and that donations are no longer being solicited.

I think you are ALREADY donating to the site. Go do a Google search on something non-WW and then watch the advertisements along the right hand bar in LJs and ”POOF” , watch that search you JUST DID pop up in the Google ads on the right as an advertisement! WOW! They are reading my mind! LOL!...

FWIW, I HATE tracked advertising. When I search for something I usually buy it then and there. So all these NEW ads that pop up are past tense and dead space as far as I am concerned. It does nothing to spur a new purchase, unless I want TWO of everything I have ever searched & bought. My 2-cents.

As a matter of fact, I am seeing all kinds of ads for “donations” and shop lighting(my recent search). LOL!

I always wonder how they know stuff. I was looking for a steel building and every time I got an email from a supplier I got all this banner advertising. And I always wonder if every body in the world sells Viagra :)

I’ mjust sitting here reading this Post, got to the bottom and what’s there? “plancanada.ca” SPONSOR a chilld today” OH! Just changed to netflix.

I live in Canada. I wonder if you guys South of the Border have the same ad.

On the side Panel, Google Ad “DONATE Furniture Pick Up”. At the top “Haiti Disaster GIVE with Compassion.” Oh! Just changed UNICEF Canada…LOL..

The other day I was on my Posting “What Is This Hammer Used For?” I was replying to someone who Suggested it was used for Saddle Making. At the Bottom, an Ad For “Western Horse Saddles”. That’s how fast “Google” and their Other Company Names can use the Cookie they slap on YOUR Computer every time you hit ANY site.

I have a Neat little, Free, Easy to use, “Window Washer” from Eusing. EVERY 3/4 nights when I’m finished and just before “Shut Down” I use it. It Consistently turns up 30/50 Cookies, a TON of Temporary Internet Files and Temp Files along with a pile of Index.dat files. MS’s “Disc Cleanup” makes like they aren’t even there when I run it first to “Test it” PHFFFT! Clearing your Browsers Cache? MAYBE 30/50% at MOST.

Okay I’m gonna feed Viagra into OUR search field just to see what happens….LOL..

Actually one night I went from here to a “Long Time Members” Blog via the “more here->” at the bottom of his Forum Post On Site, saw his Real Name. Googled that name …..NOT ALL GOOD to say the least.

Sorry Stormin” I went Way Off Topic.

EDIT: Just for fun and while I’m stilll connected here I ran the “Window Washer” that I ran Last Night. IE Cache 39@314KB, IE Cookies 25@120KB, Index.dat Files Only 3 But 4,064KB (I’m not even sure what they are?) Temp Files 15@250KB. Some of the Cookies were very familiar including this site and Rockler were I haven’t been. Most of them are “Ad Handling sites. NONE of them are there now. But. They’ll be back!! ...LOL…

Well! Only 16 returns on Viagra. The majority of them are a HOOT. BUT! It’s on Google as a Project by a “Live & Well” Present Member…BUT the quote was made as a Comment by an also Present Member.

The Quote is/was “It was invented by a Jewish carpenter who crushed viagra on the board to make it longer. Unfortunately it stretched it too long, so he had it circumcised to the correct length.” LMAO!!!!!

OOOPPSS! I just realized something/one. NO Disrespect Intended Kind Sir!!!!

-- Hope Everyone Is Doing Well! .... Best Regards: Rick

Thanks Martin I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t riding for free. Good quote on the board Rick We sometimes think about using Viagra when the wire we pulled in comes up short.

Too bad Martin didn’t sell us stock instead of accepting donations. We could be basking in our dividend income now. :-)

Rick: I just don’t believe that one. I know for a fact that the Jewish carpenter was an optimist and cut a piece off before he knew how long it would get.
Another fact, this optimism became very popular and copied and all the little scrap pieces were donated and assembled to make a whole new one which they named Rick. lol :-))))
Y’all have a nice day, especially you Rick.
