All members please read

Sorry to have to go here but this is how it goes.

8/2008 my wife will be losing her job of 30 years. No I am not begging as I can pay my bills without her income but her income is the savings/play money

FRF as well as all of my web ventures are a hobby and I have never and I am not trying to make a buck. BUT and we all hate the butts.

To keep this site as well as the others I MUST break even. So simply said

We moved to a new server this week thanks to my/our friend Chopper at bikershangout/megapowerhosting and cut my cost from 130.00 per month to 55.00 per month.

So I have done my part as best I can to cut cost and not lose the hobby I love.

Simply said FRF has to get an average of 15.00 per month in donations/sponsors or We may have to close the door.

Sorry but the boss has spoken and I have until 8/08 to have a plan in place.

any ideas?

I own a couple websites myself and I can tell you all that $55 per year is
dirt cheap.
I got a month per year covered from now on!

So I assume we get to keep your administration skills, it's just now we all have to pitch in and pay the rent, right?

Don't forget to post the same comments over on, we don't want to be a mooch.

This just goes to show how the economy is treating the
typical American family right now. It is said that the economy
is in a recession when your neighbor loses his job, but that it is
a depression when you and your neighbor lose your jobs.

I for right now am unable to contribute. My CC is maxed out still from
January (Christmas Bills). Also I am one payment behind on TT
and one pmt behind on home. However, I too get much enjoyment
from this site and as soon as I can breathe a little I will see what
I can do.

Right now I work in a local group home setting and my husband
works general labor. I am trying to decide if going into nursing
school (LPN) for one year is a good idea. They say jobs in the
medical field are here to stay (baby boomers).

So much for telling you my current financial and life story.
Please give my thoughts and prayers to your wife.

Keep up the great work!
