A Crisis of the Intertubes

The Winter Fundraiser is over, so I had big plans for today. I was going to catch up on some of the things that were delayed last week because of the bleg. But then Murphy intervened, big time: Our phone and Internet service went down, and stayed down for hours, thwarting my good intentions.

At the very least I’ll post a summary of the places where all our donors came from during the fundraising week. Among the last-minute arrivals was a gift from Hawaii, which Dymphna and I think may be the first one ever from Obamaland. There was also one from Yukon Territory, which is kind of cool. How many people are there in Yukon, anyway? Maybe half a million?

The List:

Stateside: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming

Far Abroad: Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Thailand, and the UK

Canada: British Columbia, Newfoundland, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Yukon

Australia: Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria

I’ll post a news feed tonight, but probably not much else.

  1. Actually the population of the Yukon is only 36,000 ,with most living in Whitehorse . I flew up there about 9 years ago and then onto Dawson to see Pierre Berton’s boyhood home, just across the road from Robert Service’s cabin.
    It’s a good piece of Canada and worth visiting.

  2. You got another donor from Newfoundland ? !

    Wow ! Now I don’t feel completely isolated. Great to hear.

    • Maria_dee, I will be speaking in Kansas in early March. Come see me! Get in touch with the Baron for contact details.

  3. Wow! Donations from 60% of all 50 states. That’s considerably more than those from last Fundraiser.

  4. If you have the time (by being retired) to drive to Alaska, stop to enjoy Whitehorse a bit. And don’t pass up seeing the World’s biggest Wind Vane.
