  1. I forgot to say - but you may already have noticed - that I needed to use a backup from December 6, so we lost a couple of days' worth of posts and personal messages. Sorry about that.
  2. Looks like we are back. Sorry for the interruption. First thing I should say is that I'm not sure if we are on safe ground yet. The underlying problems that caused all of this may not have been solved yet, so be prepared that things could turn bad again. I don't have time to explain in more detail at the moment what's going on, but I will when I'm sure this has all been solved.
  3. Hello all! Another year is coming to an end. That means we have a bill to pay. Nothing in this world is free, and I'm afraid the hodgepodge of fun, knowledge, friendship, kindness, understanding, escapism, community, dog pictures, and warm fuzzy fan feeling we get here is no exception. >>> Skip my speech and go straight to donation page <<< Unlike any other social media you frequent, no one here is trying to sell you anything, or make money on the data you generate. Greasy Lake is a leftover from when the internet was only about connecting with the world, sharing knowledge and passions, and finding like-minded people. That's how we would like to remain. Nothing would be easier than putting ads all over the place and post sponsored articles. I receive offers almost every day for that kind of thing. But I never respond, because I know it's not necessary and that I'd sooner shut the place down than sell out. As usual, I wish I could just pay for it all myself and let you all frolic in the Lake and not worry about anything, but I still haven't won the lottery, so I do need your help. The good news is that if all the members who logged in so far this week made a donation, $3 would be all we needed from each of you. But since that's probably not realistic, some of us will have to pay a little more. In the past, we have received donations of anything from $5 to several hundred Dollars. Whatever you can spare is hugely appreciated. Especially this time of year when most people have lots of other expenses. So, please consider making a donation so that we can ensure our existence for another year. Surely, you will want this place to share your feelings about the new E Street Band album and tour that, hopefully, 2020 has in store for us. All the information you need for donating can be found on our donation page. Still, if you have any questions, feel free to post here or send me a PM and I will do my best to answer you. Thank you for being such an awesome community! DONATE
