Good morning!
Sorry to post this so late, but had a bunch of baby stuff to do. Chest therapy and such.
Not my picture

We had a good day yesterday! WE bought one ShelterBox and are almost half way through another!
Also important is that I also had 144 facebook shares and 15 tweets!!!!
This is also very important!
I just looked at the last comments from last night and saw this!
YOU ARE DOING THIS!!!!! Thank you! Keep on!


I was in a half-hour dialogue with the SB/USA office in Florida to clear up the problems, and now it seems to be working.

And it feels really good!  (I'd give more if I had the cash to spare...)

It's really about time i change my sig line...

 I have heard from ShelterBoxUSA, with thanks: (2+ / 0-)
I just got this message from my contact there about the problems I had making a donation...:

"Phew.  Must have been overwhelmed.  We have a spike in online donations that we haven’t seen since the Japanese Tsunami.  Thanks for persevering and sorry for the hassle."

It is not a bad thing when the website gets sluggish from an excess of positive attention.  (Remind anybody of another website we've been hearing about a lot recently...?)

It's really about time i change my sig line...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
