February Pitch for Blog Support…

Under The LobsterScope needs your help to keep going…

…but there’s something in it for you (beyond the daily goodies put out for your enjoyment):

Support this blog with $5.00 or more…

…and get “Bill’s Cast O’ Characters,” a great image font,based on authentic turn-of-the-century ornaments in the Barnhart Bros. & Spindler specimen book, e-mailed to you immediately.

So many of you have been following this blog since 2004 that I feel like a member of a huge web community.

I have enjoyed bringing you The Cartoon or Cartoons of the Week, the Quotes, the Political and Arts News, the Blogrolls to the best sites in America and beyond… They are all a joy to put together. Often we get the breaking political stories before you see them anywhere else. And our wide open communication channels with readers can’t be beat.

Well, once again, I need YOUR help to keep it going. I’m hoping you will make a small contribution, by PayPal or credit/debit card, in support of Under The LobsterScope. You’d be amazed at how much $5.00 can do to help me bring more and more to these pages. And it is probably the LOWEST annual subscription fee you will make to any publication… interactive or not.

And for a contribution of $5.00 (or MORE) you will receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Cast O’ Characters  – one of my very favorites and my most used.

(I send you the True Type versions for both Macs and PCs by email). I regularly sell this font for $29.95. (See the Sample Below.)

You should know, however, that even a contribution of only $1.00 adds to the ability of this unemployed blogger to find things for your benefit, and gives you my heartfelt thanks. By clicking on the DONATE button below, you tell me that Under The LobsterScope makes a difference in your time on the web.

Thanks,

– Bill T.

Getting closer to moving…

The House inspection was finished yesterday and there is a small list of things we have to fix up… not too bade at all. Now we just have to get the final bank and legal papers done and we can close and start the (miserable) process of moving. We think it will take us about a month to change houses, fix up the town house and put it on the market. Hopefully we’ll have it sold by the end of April or mid-May.

There are so many things to plan in moving here… getting fencing up for the dogs, figuring out what Elly needs to raise chickens (this is her first major farming item), having Dave come over to put in a door for the room we are converting into a first-floor bedroom, etc. etc.

So, plenty to look forward to… alot for an old guy like me.
