Can you spare a few dollars to help with site maintenance?

UPDATED: Good news. Today’s comments issue has been resolved. Apologies for those who tried and couldn’t. Thanks especially to Andrew B for his brilliant IT help!  The site needs more work to be future-proofed so we can avoid these glitches. Any dollar support you can help out with will go toward that.  Thank you to those who have already chipped in today. : -) Much appreciated. — Jo


There’s an issue with comments this morning. Apologies! Thanks to everyone emailing in to let me know. I’m working on it. I will keep posting and hope to restore new comments as soon as possible.

Paypal buttons below, and other methods — bank deposits, cheques here 

In paypal, due to strange Australian rules, people are only permitted to “Buy” me as many $1 units of emergency chocolate support as they would like. All help big or small, gratefully received.

Click on the currency button, and write in the quantity.

Apologies, the GBP button seems to only do AUD. :- (  Sigh.

A big thank you to all the people who make this site possible.

You can email me at joanne AT if you have questions or suggestions.

    Wish it could be more, but circumstances.

    The UK PayPal link now shows something, but it is in Australian Dollars rather than GBP.

    A single pensioner here, thus not a lot of spare money to go around.

    Still the question is not, can I afford a little, but how much can I do?. Thinking about my grand kids future it is not can I help, but can I afford not to help.

    I don’t know how you manage to keep it up, but you have my little help, & my very large gratitude for the work you do.

    For christ sake rectify your method of payment receival system – it still doesn’t bloody work.

    [Maurie, did you mean the UK button? Thanks for your comment. I have – I think – repaired that.- Jo]

    Small donation.

    I appreciate your work. I’m a lurker, don’t post much, or may be never before.

    For some reason the GBP button has always been persnickety. It hangs lower, but if I try to change that position, it breaks. The mystery…

    It should be working again.

    Thanks to everyone who is helping out.

    Glad to help Jo, even if only a little. Keep pushing the “CO2 is NOT the problem”
    Surely that would cut the head off the snake.

    Thank you to everyone who is helping out. I do appreciate it.

    A few months shy of my 25th wedding anniversary and I bought chocolates for another woman. The shame, the guilt, the remorse! How do I live with that????

    All kidding aside, websites like this speak truth to power. From where I sit in southeast Connecticut, of the good ole USA, this page is in the top 5 globally. You outsnark my daughter, and that’s saying something!
