Still no Internet. Still sub-zero lows. Shares needed.

Still no Internet. 'Equipment failure"; "parts ordered"; "maybe today or tomorrow." Infrastructure overload, and no inclination to bother doing it right, IOW. No, you don't want to hear what I'm saying right now. 

Shortest day of the year, longest night of the year, back below zero again tonight, and the need to drive two days straight has my migraine back in full force. So. Shares, please:

  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown above.
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales are way, way down this holiday season, and this is the time of year that usually gets us (mostly) through the long harsh winters. This year, it's also funding construction. Testimonials help.
  • If you're considering commissioning holiday gifts by Wings, now's the time to contact me so I can get your order into his workbench queue. We're about out of time for this one, at least those that involve shipping across the country. 
  • One last thing: I mentioned above that the plumbers are coming, and bathroom-fixture purchases are in the offing. To that end, I've added Lowes gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. No, there's no Lowes here in Taos, but there's one an hour-plus away in EspaƱola. Less obnoxious (and less expensive, and less far away) than Home Depot, and an actual selection and discount pricing that are not available here in town. It's by far the most cost-efficient way for us to buy the bathroom fixtures, which we're going to have to do very soon so that they can complete the plumbing rough-in and our crew can get to those rooms.
Thanks to everyone for your help thus far. Special thanks to one dear friend who is keeping me from losing what remains of my sanity; I can't believe you did this. Still, we are going to need to push through this, hard, fast, and and consistently. Winter is here: Snow, ice, bitter cold, and a septic system that freezes nightly because it was misinstalled all those years ago. Blowing snow, brutal winds, and lots of ice yesterday; supposed to be seven below tonight. Please give us a hand with consistent daily shares to a wide audience.
