They did not meet their financial goal for June and that does not surprise me with only 65 people "on-line"
And today is the last day of June.
Hi, Folks -
The Fundrazr looks like it will accept credit card payments, but it relies on WePay as processor for credit cards, and Rayelan does not have a WePay account at this time - so it doesn't work.
To contribute using a credit card, use the 'DONATE' link on the main page, which leads here:
That way, you can bypass the Fundrazr and go directly to Paypal, where a different processor is used and your credit card payment will be accepted.
NOTE that since that approach bypasses the Fundrazr widget, your contribution won't be reflected in the Fundrazr total.
Sorry for the confusion on that but thanks indeed for your support. :)
First is was a repair bill for two cars. It took almost all of my social security.
Then came the wasp that managed to sting me over many parts of my body. I still have the stings on one leg... and the wasp was many days ago... at least that's how I remember it. For all I know it could have been yesterday.
Then came the worst yet. My adorable little dog Max ate some Thompson seedless grapes. I did not know that grapes are deadly to most dogs.
After seeing him throw up over and over, I stayed up with him all night. At some point I came to the computer and started some research. I quickly found more than I bargained for.
I discovered that most of the dogs I read about died. I felt horrible.
I read about the things you are supposed to give a dog who has eaten grapes. It was water... just water and in small amounts.
He went to a vet late yesterday, and I was up with him most of the night, (last night). And this morning I had to take him back.
Sometime today the vet called and said that one of his kidney tests showed something. The reading was higher than it should have been. She needed me to bring him and a urine sample in tomorrow.
I am sick with worry. and his bills are rapidly approaching a thousand dollars.
I don't have credit cards. I can't put this on a card and pay it a little each month.
Between the cars and Max July has been a complete wipe out for me.
If you love dogs as I do, you know how this feels. If you have anything left after paying all of your own bills, can you please help me so I can keep paying Max's bills.
I don't really know how he is. I will let you know in the morning.
I sincerely thank you in advance for you help.
PS...I am putting up the same fumdrazer widget. I'm not going to add more money by creating a separate widget. I will make do with what's there.
Help Rayelan Raise enough money to pay the bills.

Maybe this is why the two cars.
Of course things may have changed since.
and nice paycheck :)

You too? well...
Gee, that’s a tough one.
Did you ever realize the FACT that, a great deal more than 1000 YEARS of cumulative (and mostly) conservative life experience is presented on RMN each time you view it’s main page?
And that’s at any and all times day or night.
And, of course, those currently viewable 1000 years of life experience are extended to MILLENIA of life experience by using the RMN search function, where one can view previous posts by keywords, agent, subject, etc.
Like life, RMN is a buffet for your mind. Food for thought.
There are at any time, perhaps 100 active bloggers (agents) on RMN, including those at CGI. Each of these, are either ’news’ junkies or have a personal ax to grind on many different subjects.
Each agent’s time is equally as valuable as the readers..
Exactly NONE of these, save a couple, receive absolutely ANY (as in zero) compensation for their time. Yet ALL agents do donate their TIME to post on subjects they feel others MAY be interested in.
While it may take a reader 1 minute to scan/reject any particular post, it has taken the agent more than three times as long to read, evaluate and go to the trouble to post it, giving comments, references and links for your further investigation.
That is ‘money’ Time is the equivalent of money, you know. Time spent in doing any non compensated service for others is time one cannot use to make the money to survive this world. And of course, time offers no refunds.
Most readers with a modicum of common sense in the way things work in this world will realize that even though the internet is ‘free’ you still get a bill each month for the technology to provide it. Cable, satellite, phone, or whatever,
In addition you are charged on most sites by their ads by the bucketful, requiring your time to delete or otherwise dodge them to continue to read content, Popups are prevalent and if you are like me, their distraction pisses you off, Even so, they are necessary for the particular site to pay it’s server and other bills. Oftentimes, there is no way to bitch to the site owner or offer any comment, constructive or otherwise.
RMN is different in this regard. Popup ads are non existent on the main site reader pages.
Some agents invite comments to themselves by using the “send email” option, while others do not. But reader comments/questions ARE ALWAYS available to the reader by simply sending it via e-mail to Hobie or Susoni @ rumormillnews.com. I assure you that it will be forwarded to the particular agent, and you will get a reply, usually published below the subject post.
The gist of this post is that you the reader can surely continue. at least pro tem, to ignore any request to pitch in a buck or two for the RMN thought buffet. That’s fine. Unknown others will continue to carry your part as long as they can, and as usual, the various Agents, Hobie, Susoni and Rayelan will continue to spread their messages as long as they can.
You know that your total internet charges are typically over $100 per month including charges for equipment and services, and you pay them because they are useful.
It’s easy to think that you REALLY should donate $2 a month for RMN, $2 is only a cup of coffee, ($5 at Starbucks.) Yet you can’t take the time right now. But you will, maybe tomorrow…
Here’s a solution. Click https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/01N6Uc/pay and put a RECURRING charge of a half/cup of “coffee” on your credit card or paypal.
That way you will not have to think about it, and I dare say that you will not notice $2 per month increase on your card, RMN will be preserved for as long as we need it, and you will not be continuously asked for requests.
There are more than 1000 Unique IP’s hitting RMN daily. REALLY regularly. There are also multi-million page hits each month, but if only 1000 regular “thought buffet” visitors chipped in a few bucks (a cup of coffee) each each month, your conscience would be clear, and RMN could concentrate on what it does without worry over filthy lucre .
Think about it. And delay not to act on it because actions speak much more substance than thoughts and words…
Hi, Folks -
Raye posted a message about 24 hours ago that you may have missed. The Subject line she used made it sound like all was well and the content could be safely skipped. :) Here's what she said:
The July widget only needs $500.00 more to reach the goal I set back at the beginning of the month. I would be very happy if you could help me out by contributing whatever you can afford.
I have $25.00 in paypal. And I need more than you can imagine. I can't tell you more except to say that I am not the only American who is being strong armed. I'm being strong armed in an effort to control me and RMN. This is part of the reason that I don't post much on RMN. I don't want RMN shut down or sold out from under me.
I have a lot of items that I am putting up on eBay. These are things that were sent to me by readers in an attempt to raise money. If you have ever sold on ebay you will remember that filling out the info about the item is very time consuming, and this is the reason I have not been around as much as I would like.
I am trying not to post the eBay items right now because if I do, I will need to pack and ship them and I don't have time right this moment to do this.
I had bad news from my doctor yesterday regarding my diabetes. Blood tests show that nothing I have been trying to help the diabetes is working. Yesterday at the doctor's office the only thing I heard was the word "amputation". Needless to say, it got my attention but left me so depressed I could barely talk or move or do anything productive.
After stewing in my own misery for most of the rest of the day, I went to bed early and woke up early. I know I can work out a payment plan, and with the help from eBay sales, I will probably be able to settle this money problem. But it's going to take time and a lot of work but it will settle the problem.
I wish a way to settle the diabetes problem would present itself.
