Default And the Grand Total.

Heres our totals folks.

but first.. A message from our sponsor. Me

I know I go all corndog once in a while with The Spirit of The Brethren, get all gushy and Mary like... and I am sure theres those out there who roll their eyes.. But I really believe that those are the ones who have not gotten to know us, or understand the culture we encourage and nurture here.

What you folks have shown here is amazing.. it IS The Spirit of The Brethren, and naysayers..roll your eyes all you want. What was done here, I have never seen in any internet forum.. EVER. For all the negative stuff that I have to deal with occasionally, which I will admit sometimes gets to me.. it is the things like this that makes it all worth wild. One act of support, by so many people, wipes out all the bad, and proves to me that we are doing the right thing. It proves that this is an amazing group of people here and we have a great future and a culture that I believe unrivaled. My hats off to all of you who helped make this happen, supported it, and backed me up. A huge thanks to each one of you.

If this does not show a true Brethren fellowship, I do not know what could. All the best to Bill and family! It just makes more sense to me why I take pictures of food.

Mine was a small contribution to this cause; others have gone above and beyond. This site is just unbelievable. I am glad to just be a part of it!

This totally unbelievable... I am not going to comment anymore about it right now.

I am going to have my wife and daughter look at all of this. Then they can read this thread last.... then I will let them say a few words of appreciation as well. So until then, THANK YOU ALL for your love and support.
