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 Barnhart Ornaments,” 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 Barnhart Ornaments (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.

Please help support Under The LobsterScope… and get a free gift:

Hi friends. It’s getting more and more expensive to keep Under The LobsterScope operating daily and I know that many of you return every couple of days to see what’s new.

Since a lot of you are bloggers like me (and graphic designers/desktop publishers as well), I’d like to offer one of my original picture fonts, Bill’s Modern Diner, for the last decade one of the most popular.

I sell this font, for both Mac and PC, for $29.00. I will, however, send you a complete copy with keychart and both Mac and PC versions, for any donation to  Under The LobsterScope of $5.00 or more.

Here’s a font sample:

This is a font I use for menus and food articles and I’ve had occasion to use it just about every week since I created it.

So if you sign on to see Cartoon(s) of the Week, or Quotes, or views on Theatre and the Arts or any of the Political stuff presented on UTL, your contributions make all of these possible. I need to raise $300.00 by January 1 to make my goal.

If you feel you can support this blog,Please send a donation of $5.00 or more (more is better ) via PayPal:

Thanks for considering this…

If only the Rich will have the Best Advantages in our Society, then I want to be Rich…

I should have decided this long ago, and I’m not sure why I didn’t.  I tell myself I was concerned with creating things for middle class design workers (my fonts) or hiring young people and giving them health insurance (U-Design, Inc and Hybrid Communications the two companies I owned in the 80s and early 90s) or just promoting good, ethical, Progressive and liberal causes in this blog.

Apparently I was wrong all these years.

So I am now thinking about raising the price of my picture and display fonts (which you can find at UTF Type Foundry or here on this blog where I give away one of these products for any contribution above $5.00) from $29.95 a set to $125,000.00. Then, if I sell the same amount I’m doing now, I’ll be Rich in a very short time and have all the tax breaks and government favors…and be able to hire my own lobbyists… and spend the remaining years of my dwindling life in Conservative Happiness.

Of course, there may be other, even easier ways to get Rich. So many of those on the top scales of our society did it by committing some form of white collar crime… it goes all the way back to Joe Kennedy during the Depression… and I could spend time researching the possibilities now (or what else is the web for?). This solution means I don’t have to go through the e-mail chore of sending fonts and keyboard charts out to buyers, saving me ten or fifteen minutes on each sale. I could sleep longer in the morning!

It’s time for me to walk the dogs and do the dishes, so I’ll have to get back to my exit from the Middle Class later on.

I really need your support to keep this blog going…

Contribute $5.00 or more and receive one of my classics, Bill’s Barnhart Ornaments, as a gift for supporting Under The LobsterScope.

In 2004 I started Under The LobsterScope during the election season. For six years I have presented the best liberal-oriented material I could find and my own comments on politics and the arts (and a few other subjects).

I need your support to keep this blog going… when I started I was employed and well-paid, but, as a result of the Bushified economy, I was more-or-less unemployed for four years, and now I have retired having reached early Social Security eligibility. Under The LobsterScope is my major achievement each day.

I’m asking if you will donate at least $5.00 to Under the LobsterScope. If you do, you get my picture font,Bill’s Barnhart Ornaments (usually priced at $29.00) , absolutely FREE OF CHARGE, sent to you immediately by e-mail. This font is based on the historic floral and decorative dingbats from the Turn of the Century Barnhart Brothers and Spindler Type Specimen Book. These are classic font images and not available anywhere else. I created the font over 22 years ago and it has been one of my best sellers ever since.

That’s it. $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is only available at my UTF Type Foundry site.

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 helps (although $5 helps a whole lot more…and gets you the font. Some folks who really like this blog give even more!) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

Remember…All contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Barnhart Ornaments (I send you the versions for both Macs and PCs, plus a handy keyboard chart). As I said, I regularly sell this font for $29.00

This offer will end on October 30th.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board every time I’ve put up a new Free Font and hope more of you will join in. Previous donors have received four of my Free Fonts…Bill’s Universal Symbols, Bill’s Cast O’Characters, Bill’s Dingbats and Bill’s Century Marks. Since several contributors have come back more than once, it is clear that this is viewed as a “good deal”.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

All contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Century Marks (I send you the versions for both Macs and PCs, plus a handy keyboard chart). As I said, I regularly sell this font for $29.95.

This offer is for a very limited time.
Over the past few months many of you have come on board with an average donation of $10.00 and were sent and for those of you $5 Plus donors who received our last Free Font, Bill’s Cast O’Characters, I hope you are enjoying it. I know it is a picture font I use all the time.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:

Thanks,

February 28: Last Day to get Bill’s Cast O’ Characters for FREE with donation to this blog…

Bill’s Cast O’Characters Font (worth $29.95) is Free when you support Under The LobsterScope with a donation of $5.00 or more.Today (February 28) Only!

We have had a record number of donors in February… but we need more.

Since 2004 I have been bringing you Under The LobsterScope totally free-of-charge and have avoided advertising or “blog begging” or any of the other methods of scavenging that blog writers are prone to. Unfortunately, this has had to change…just a little… to keep this information for progressives, liberals and others coming.

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 would help (although $5 helps a whole lot more…and gets you the free font.) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

All contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Cast O’ Characters (I send you the True Type versions for both Macs and PCs). As I said, I regularly sell this font for $29.95.

Tomorrow (March 1) the offer for this font will be over (I’ll be putting up another one) and Cast O’Characters will go back to its Regular For Sale Price only.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board over the last few days and hope more will join in. And for those of you $5 Plus donors, I hope you are enjoying Bill’s Cast O’Characters. I know it is a picture font I use all the time.

UPDATE!  UPDATE!  UPDATE!

It is now March 1 and Bill’s Cast O’ Characters is no longer available for Free (You may purchase it for $29.95 – drop me an e-mail and I’ll tell you how.)

Starting today, the Free Font is Bill’s Century Marks, a unique picture font which you can’t get anywhere else. It is yours FREE with a donation of $5.00 or more.

Here’s a small sample:

A Reward for the Supporters of Under The LobsterScope

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 (this week’s pair on the recent Supreme Court decision are particularly poignant), 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, 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 (I send you the True Type versions for both Macs and PCs by email). I regularly sell this font for $29.95. Sample Below:

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

Thanks,
