My annual appeal - give thanks for TFL

This is the time of year that we USA based North Americans have just celebrated our Thanksgiving as we usher in the beginning of the Christmas holidays.  

I get a lot of pleasure out of my participation and reviewing of others' activity on TFL.  Probably more so than any other non-news or encyclopedic website.  And I rely on TFL for my enjoyment, diversion and personal satisfaction in learning and sharing what I've learned.  And it has enhanced my retirement hobby greatly.

I have no personal association with our host Floyd beyond a thanks to him for creating and maintaining this website.  But as long as I have the floor, I'm asking those of you who wish to thank Floyd in a different way than just kind words, to think about donating to TFL.  It may just benefit all of us in the long run.

https://www.paypal.me/TheFreshLoaf is where I just made my annual donation.  Consider doing something similar if you feel like you get a real value out of TFL's existence.  If Floyd has an alternative method of contributing for you to consider, other than PayPal, I hope that he replies with that information.

I've asked Floyd more than once in the past if it was okay to post these messages, and he said yes.  So this year I'm doing an end-run and not asking first.

But I cancelled my Paypal account. I visit daily but never have managed to post photos!

Done, what I get out of here is more than I just contributed. Thanks for the reminder Alan

Alan, thanks for going to the trouble of making this opportunity available again.  I donated last year and was thinking that it was about time to do so this year.  I could not recall who started the effort, and then your post appeared like magic.

Thanks in advance, Floyd, for all that you do to keep this site here for us, weed out the intruders and others who seek to distract from its purpose, and otherwise make the site a valuable and rewarding place to visit and interact.

... a) Alan for the gentle reminder and provider of the means for us to say a tangible "thank you" to b) Floyd for the generosity of spirit in hosting a perpetual "open house" for the exchange of news and views for AB&ABEs!
