It being my birthday soon thought we\’d have a little test of how much you all love and desire this blog/me/righteous smiting of the ignorant etc.
No, I do not \”need\” money from you. I have managed, through a combination of business activities and writing here and there, to create an income stream which pays the mortgage(s), keeps us all fed and watered, even the five (remaining) cats and three dogs.
So the only possible reason you might have for sending some moolah my way is that this blog amuses you sufficiently that you actually desire to send me said moolah for me to upgrade my lifestyle a bit.
Perhaps the next steak dinner for two will be filet mignon (£30 ish around here) rather than bitoques (£15 or so). The next bottle of fizz champers instead of vinho verde. The next box of cigars decent Cubans (err, lots?) instead of who knows where Alvaro gets their tobacco from. The next car a Ferrari rather than a Ford (one can dream, eh?).
I do promise not to waste any of what is sent: none will be spent upon essentials, only luxuries.
