Happy New Year!!

I hope you all had a wonderful 2019 and have a happy 2020 to come. I’d like to thank my Members for sticking with me this year and for however many years you have been with me. I honestly could not have produced this gallery without you.

What am I planning for 2020? I would like to move DB from my rather expensive Rackspace plan to something a bit less expensive. I have a few options in mind, but I don’t want to simply move the site. I want to replace it with something modern.

I haven’t decided if I am going to hire someone for this, or ask for volunteers. If anyone out there is interested in helping me with this please send a PM.

You may remember that I’d mentioned we were looking at a $2000/month health insurance bill. Fortunately we’ve been able to halve that since Jessica started working as a teacher’s assistant (Spec Ed) at Ian’s high school this fall. The job doesn’t pay a lot (especially after $1000/mo is deducted for the health plan) but she loves the work 🙂

Which leads me to an uncomfortable, but necessary announcement. The price for the basic yearly Memberships will be going up $5 in 2020. Auto-renewing Memberships will be $25/yr and auto-expiring will be $30/yr. The Plus Membership price will remain the same.

IMPORTANT: If you are already on a yearly plan YOUR PRICE WILL NOT CHANGE unless there is a disruption in your yearly payments and your account is auto-expired!

I haven’t given myself a raise of any kind since 1999 and it was starting to show in my finances. Thanks everyone for understanding!

If you would like to help with Project Rochallor or would just like to help me out with a year-end bonus please visit my Tip Jar.

Thanks again everyone for supporting my work and my family. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer them.
