Well folks, it's that time again.  Where does the time go...   :hugegrin:

Since there have been a fair amount of new people who have joined recently, let me explain what the HGO pledge drive is.

You may have noticed that HGO is one of the ONLY sites on the Internet that contains absolutely no advertising.  That's because I rely on the membership to help offset the costs of running this site.  The cost is quite small; I get a bill for $49.95 every 6 months (and every other year I get a bill for the domain name hisgraceoasis.com).  Using PayPal, members make donations to help contribute to the cost of this site.  If you do the math, it takes only 10 people to donate $5.00 to cover the costs for 6 months (that's only $0.83/month!). (In the interest of full disclosure, that $49.95 also covers my other site, rtechsupport.com, and another site that is just for my family. However, the cost of the hosting is the same no matter if I have 1 domain or 10.)

So, the pledge drive is now open.  You may post your pledge in this thread, or if you prefer to remain private, you may PM me.  Thank you for your continued support of the ministry of HGO.

You realize of course this started a whole conversation about

Sending Pizza money

vs

sending Pete some money.

caused quite a stir this morning.
I wanna die like grandpa, peacefully and in his sleep. Not like the passengers in his car...they were all screaming and panicking.

He was confused because he thought I kept talking to him about sending pizza money when I was saying that I wanted to send Pete some money. He had this befuddled look and was like, "I have no idea what you are talking about."

Pete,

You are going to have to say this out loud to understand it...

Kinda like that song misunderstanding I had for years...

Mares eat oats
Does eat oats
and little lambs be divey

instead of little lambs eat ivy.

I wanna die like grandpa, peacefully and in his sleep. Not like the passengers in his car...they were all screaming and panicking.

Thank you.  Well, I don't know the total yet (since not everyone has yet told me what they plan to give  ;) ), but I suspect we've reached our goal.

Thank you all again for your support of this ministry.  This is not just a forum.  I believe this is a place used mightily by God every single day.   ;)

You sent the payment to the wrong email address, though I now see that PayPal allows me to have more than one email address linked, so I'm adding my address here to avoid that problem again in the future.  ;)

ETA:  I see you re-sent your payment to the correct address.  Thank you!

In the future, it won't matter which email you use, as I just added pete.robinson@hisgraceoasis.com to my PayPal account, so I can accept payments on that address as well.
