Please support Under The LobsterScope…

 

…and I will give you a free gift if you make a donation of $5.00 or more…

…you get “Bill’s Box Specials”, a picture font I haven’t offered in this promotion before. These images from many traditional sources and includes a large fraction set. There are also a number of Holiday Images which you will find very useful. The font comes for Mac and PC, and I usually sell it for $29.95.  It’s my way of saying “Thank You” to offer it to $5 or more donors.

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(s) of the Week, the Quotes, the Political and Arts News, the Blogrolls of 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.

I really 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 Box Specials – a collection I rarely offer with a blog donation!

(I send you font versions for both Macs and PCs by email, and include a typeface keyboard directory.
See the Sample Below.)

I should note that even a donation of $1.00 gets my thanks and helps to keep this blog going. 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.

It’s been our number one social program for 77 years…

 

… all it needs is one year of Republican control and you can kiss it goodbye.

 

FDR signed the Social Security Act on August 14, 1935, ensuring that all Americans—not just the privileged few—can retire with dignity. 77 years later, the Republican VP candidate, Paul Ryan, has proposed privatizing our promise to seniors. Pass on this image if you support protecting Social Security.

 

Helen Gurley Brown Has Died…

 

The famous Cosmopolitan Magazine editor, Helen Gurley Brown, has died at age 90.

Brown died Monday at a hospital in New York after a brief hospitalization. Her book, “Sex and the Single Girl,” made her a celebrity in 1962, and taking over Hearst’s Cosmopolitan gave her a pulpit for her ideas that lasted for dccades.

In 1997 she summed up her career:

“I would want my legacy to be, ‘She created something that helped people.’ My reader, I always felt, was someone who needed to come into her own.”
