The G20 Summit is this weekend in Toronto.
But that is not what this post is about.
A pivotal time for me has arrived out of nowhere. Isn't it crazy how time flies? We all know time flies because it whooshes overhead unnoticed every day. Yet when we fly, say in seat 38b with that fat man reclining in front of us, time moves very slowly. That's because time is up there flying with us.
ANOTHER (THOUGHTS!) lasted 11 months, from 10/97 to 9/98. FOA's Gold Trail was almost 22 months, from 2/00 until 12/01. FOFOA has now been here a full 22 months, officially surpassing the duration of each of those fine archives. While I am certainly nowhere near the league of those guys, I think I am now qualified to empathize with them. Mine is an empathy that cannot be shared with anyone who has not walked in the same shoes, or at least footprints, so to speak.
So here is a little "inside information" about me for those of you that care. I have been unemployed since I began this blog. I am living under a self-imposed austerity regime financed only by my personal savings and a very small income from gracious readers like you that have supported this blog through donations. Thank you all!
But this month a string of unexpected costs have come up. So unfortunately I must conduct this poll. Here is the question:
Is my time more valuable here sharing my Thoughts, or flipping burgers to protect my savings? Please answer A or B:
To answer A, please click the donation button below and cast the desired weight of your vote. For B, don't do anything.
I will publish the poll results (without names) once the sample has reached a representative size. Thank you all very much for visiting FOFOA... and would you like any fries with that?
