Funding Update

In case you missed out on all the giving, we had a burst of generosity from the get go that fully funded our web site hosting expenses for the year. Woohoo!

Thanks to all who chipped in and to all who make this a truly special place.

  1. Roger in AR,
    Those suggestions might help, but there’s really no way of knowing what is safe in a Kafka-esque society where everything that’s not forbidden is compulsory. Perhaps if we all emulate the pod carriers in “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”…

  2. John Baird, It’s Friday in the fifth week of Lent, and if you follow the Catholic custom (no red meat), sardines are just fine. Oil is good for the joints. I will take the good deal of Alaskan sock-eye Salmon for 3 tall tins for 85 cents. Probably canned by “Alaskeros” – People of Filipino descent represent the largest Asian American subgroup in the State of Alaska. Filipino seamen are recorded as having contact with Alaska Natives as early as 1788, and Filipino immigrants continued to arrive as workers in Alaska’s developing natural resource industries: as sailors on American whaling ships; as ore sorters for gold mines in Juneau and Douglas Island; and as salmon cannery workers (called Alaskeros). Alaska’s Filipino community has a long history of interaction and intermarriage with Alaska Native communities, and many Filipinos in Alaska also claim Alaska Native heritage.
    NOTE: In 1923 Three(3) lbs (1.36 kg) of rice cost 20 cents. For a buck you could have a few good meals. (I originally was looking for a loaf of bread; but perhaps “bread” was a food one baked.
