It's that time of year again.. I just paid for the upcoming year's internet services required to keep the forum Ad and cost free to all our members. I once again am asking for donations only to cover the cost of the actual charges to run the site..  If you donate please be sure to make it known in a post below so others know how much is being collected.  I have attached the receipt for the total paid bill for reference. Thank you on behalf of all our member's in advance to any of those who choose to support the forum this year!

Paypal funds to ************* (use gift feature to avoid fees if at all possible.) Once the funds have reached the total I will delete the Paypal info and cease to collect any further..

Total costs paid to Godaddy for 2020.. $459.87

UPDATED : In order to go to a secure website I had to upgrade our Hosting to Deluxe Hosting with cPanel.  We were charged a one time migration fee of $99.99 in addition to the Deluxe Hosting.  Please send any small donation you can, for now this is all out of pocket for me. In the next few days our site will be migrated over to a secure platform and will eventually have the "secure" lock to the right of the url in your browsers search bar.  This will allow us to appear in Google searches again and secure our site in general.


Thanks again..

I have never understood why TFF T-shirts are not sold for fund raising.

We wish we had more time to dedicate to the forum like we used to. These days we wouldn't have the time to organize the designing and sale of t-shirts for the forum. We've been pretty hands-off for the past 4-5 years.

When we now started, we would sell fruit trees that 100% of the proceeds went towards paying for the forum.
