We're 2/5rds of the way through the month, and only halfway where we need to be for February.

You screaming Lookie Loos bitching about not having any member privileges - you are a problem eating up my time with you whining email.

Read this. It's not just money that has gotten your privileges seriously limited.

This community is about keeping everyone safe, more than anything else, and to have fun.

2) Recommend us to new folks. Constantly growing and bringing in new crew members keeps the place lively.

3) Financially: This site takes up a lot of time to administer and keep the spammers, flamers, and other ne'er-do-wells at bay. A few hours of every day of my life goes into it. While making a donation isn't mandatory, you may see some of your access privileges curtailed if you use the system without actually doing any of the things listed in (1) above, or by making a voluntary donation.

There are two ways to donate:

1) Mail and payable to:

Nobody Home Ent
PO Box 3011
Davenport, IA 52808

Be sure to include your username with the donation.

2) By credit card. Push the Big Green Button in the upper right hand corner for instructions. There is a fee for processing the payment.

Be sure to send me your username with any donation - they are all hand processed, there is no automation in place.

Again, a thanks to everyone who has supported the site previously, and I hope many of you will continue to do so in the future.

This was added to The Bilge for their viewing pleasure.

Really disappointing results in January. I hope some of the February people come forward early, the rent is due on this joint on Sunday.

Here I am, back in NPR mode, hat in hand hoping all of the new users will see the benefits of this resource, and the prior donors step up again. I fell way short to pay the rent out of donations this month. I won't cover it out of pocket again in March.

While making a donation isn't mandatory, you may see some of your access privileges curtailed if you use the system without actually doing any of the things listed in (1) above, or by making a voluntary donation.

There are two ways to donate:

1) Mail and payable to:

Nobody Home Ent
PO Box 3011
Davenport, IA 52808

Be sure to include your username with the donation.

2) By credit card. Push the Big Green Button in the upper right hand corner for instructions. There is a fee for processing the payment.

Be sure to send me your username with any donation - they are all hand processed, there is no automation in place.

Again, a thanks to everyone who has supported the site previously, and I hope many of you will continue to do so in the future.

Very disappointing results last month, and so far we're way behind for August.

Here I am, back in NPR mode, hat in hand hoping all of the new users will see the benefits of this resource, and the prior donors step up again. I fell way short to pay the rent out of donations this month. I won't cover it out of pocket again.

Can we get five new donors in the next four days before they land in the Lookie Loo bin?

We had a sizable surge of registration in March 2017, but no corresponding increase of supporters.

Good Time for a bump with a video of many years ago when the original gang got together for the first support drive for GBN.
