Day 5 - Poll Results
After 22 months of writing The Gold Trail, FOA disappeared, saying, "My spirit is low, I will walk this trail in silence."
It was a sad day for many who followed FOA quietly, while a vocal minority hectored him right off the trail.
Perhaps he should have held a fund raiser, like my Public Opinion Poll, because it raises not only funds, but also the soul. Apparently the silent majority does not like being overrun if given a vote in the matter.
My spirit is high. I will not walk this trail in silence!
The poll will remain open for anyone who would still like to "vote," but the winner can now be called. The blog beats McDonald's in stunning fashion!
Total donations over the past four and a half days are $10,775.50!
I am finding it challenging to express the level of my gratitude. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who voted! I am humbled, touched, elated and flattered by each and every one.
And again, the comments have been great. Here are a few more:
Use the fiat quickly.
