Haiti response and a total duh moment

Thank you to the many TFL community members who have shown support for Mercy Corps' response to the disaster in Haiti.  Your support means a great deal to me. 


Overall we've had tremendous support from donors on this one.  It you hit Amazon.com today you'll see they are listing us as the preferred charity.


On another note: remember how I was saying TFL was exactly 5 years old yesterday?  Some members contacted me about having a hard time reaching the site this morning.  Guess how long I registered the domain "thefreshloaf.com" for?  5 years.  Can you figure out who forgot to renew their domain?  Geez, what a dumb thing to do.  Happily no one snatched it up and the domain has been renewed, so thefreshloaf.com should be safe for another five years.

I wondered why I could not get to the site this morning, but assumed some more "technical" problem.


I am glad you were able to get it renewed before a "domain squatter" got hold of it.  No harm, no foul.  I'm glad to hear that support is good for the Haiti relief fund, because they are really going to need it, and for some time to come.  You're doing good work Floyd, both at home and away.  Stay strong and keep it up.

Thanks for the link through Amazon - it was so easy to contribute.


Glad to know why TFL wasn't available the other morning...I checked in as soon as I got home from work. And - PHEW - it's back!


Happy Anniversary

I donated to Mercy Corps in addition to other donations because anyone who puts together such a generous website as the Fresh Loaf deserves trust and support.  Thank you, floydm!

Thanks for all you do and the time you spend to make this forum a great success.  Where do you find the time and bless you for giving it!  My question is this:  "I don't know how to really use the blog and manage my account.  Is there a page of instructions somewhere somewhere that I have missed?
