This is the 2000th post on SFL.
Can anything be left to say? Is there some point that hasn’t yet been made? Is there a topic that hasn’t explored for its meaning, explained for its wisdom, or exploited for its humor?
Hey, let’s find out…
To every one of you who gave, shared, sent words of encouragement, or just cheered on the entire crazy TWO DAYS it took to hit the goal and help us get a new family car: I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Today I’m feeling less anxiety than I have in a long time — not because there’s money in the bank but because I was reminded that there are friends who have my back in so many different ways.
I love you all.
Once upon a time in the dead of a harsh winter a gallant minivan lost its transmission and left its riders stranded on the mountain.
Those brave souls searched their pockets and raided the change in the couch. They scrimped and saved and worked and borrowed and bought an even older minivan that carried them through the cold and snow until at last the springtime came.
Then, as if it knew the winter was past and its duty done, this van too fell ill and at last began to die with horrible groans and many flashing lights and dinging noises.
The family who owned it were now at their wits end. Their savings were all spent. The father already worked two job. The mother now attempted to work the dark magic known as Tupperware sales. They scrimped and saved and cut corners but to no avail.
Even after all their efforts they still had not the funds to buy even half of a new van and so they risked spending the summer in the same way as they had spent the wintertime: stranded on the mountain with their two princesses and this made the princesses very sad.
And so the father swallowed his pride and sallied forth to the land of Gofundmia where he had heard tell that there was a good and generous people who sometimes helped those in need.
And there the story waits for you to help write the ending. If you can, please help us find our happily ever after.
Here are some other ways to help out too:
You can buy some Tupperware. (No seriously, buy a LOT of Tupperware. The start-up costs on getting into this racket are higher than you might think.)
SFL was visited about 2.2 million times in 2014. That’s a lot of clicks.
Here’s some of the stuff that went on:

In THREE HOURS this past spring we raised enough money to keep SFL online all year. Many, many thanks
Kent Hovind and Jack Schaap are still in jail. John Hamblin still isn’t. Yet.
Happy New Years to you all. I’m taking a couple days off. I’ll see you all in 2015!
Many of you are familiar with Jeri Massi’s work documenting and advocating for victims of fundamentalism. Now Jeri could really use our help.
