There is only one thing I don't like performing on this website -- and that is asking for donations. But if I don't, people rarely donate. Since this is my full time job, donations keep me fed and AHNC on ALL the Internets.
Big hug to you and all the others that donated.
And one AHNC viewer is literally putting food on my family -- she is sending gourmet food samples from her company! How fabulous is that!
AHNC viewers are the bomb! Non-nuclear, of course.
How much is All Hat No Cattle worth to you? $1 a
month, $10 a month?
Please donate to keep AHNC online.
