BUY THE BLOGGER AN XMAS DRINK?



I’m not even sure about this myself. Should I do it? Or would it be gauche or bad form? From Counter Punch to Susie Bright I see all these blogs and static websites having what they call fund raising appeals to cover their operating expenses. Now I couldn’t say that Doc40 exactly had operating expenses, and we don’t take adds or (so far) sell you stuff, but funds are a constant headache, so being the Yule and all, I shed all shame and say what the fuck? The sensei puts out his begging bowl. Let’s have a one-time fundraiser. So Paypal contributions or Amazon gift vouchers or whatever will be very welcome at byron4d@msn.com (The illustration, by the way is an original by the later lamented Edward Barker, who I miss greatly.)

The secret word is Cheer

Your writing has provided a lot of enjoyment over the years. That's deserving of at least a small donation. Paypal payment on the way.

Merry Christmas/Xmas/Yule/etc

I was thinking about this. Isn't there some way that you can set up "Doc's Books and Records" whereby we click on a link to some Farren product and are taken to Amazon? Then, if we purchase something, you get some small percentage. I know Amazon used to have something like that. I suppose it could be argued that the blog itself is Farren product and we should be paying for that too.
