3) FFM – Featured Foundation of the Month!
It’s the WELLNESS FOR HUMANITY FOUNDATION!
We know through much research and experience that the biological body is adaptable to energy frequencies, and that every area of the body has its own frequency.  When any of those frequencies change from normal, through injury or stress or the immune system not handling pathogens or bacteria, then one can feel symptoms, pain, inflammation or discomfort.
The body can be brought back into correct balance by offering it normal frequencies and helping it to heal itself, which the body is empowered to do.  Just watch a cut or scrape heal in a day or two……that is what the body does as long as the frequencies are fairly normal.
Arthur and his team have created a machine specifically for home use that corrects body frequencies.  It is especially effective with what are currently referred to as “mystery diseases” such as Lyme, chronic fatigue and other health issues labeled “auto-immune”.  Voice vibrations are part of the discernment system and identify pathogens and parasites.  The machine is available now and will be used for humanitarian purposes as well.  It is fairly compact and fits into a carry-on size military grade suitcase.  Other equipment will be available also, and wellness centers and clinics will be set up to service the public.  Their website is www.ampcoil.com.
Congratulations, Arthur!  You are providing a great service.

“While Your Application is Pending, While an organization’s application is waiting for processing by the IRS, the organization may operate as a tax-exempt organization. Most organizations are required to file an annual information return (Form 990, Form 990-EZ or Form 990-PF) or electronic notice (Form 990-N) while their application for exemption is pending. An organization’s exempt status can be automatically revoked while its application is pending if it has not filed a required return or notice for three consecutive tax periods after its formation date. These returns are subject to public disclosure. If the organization has unrelated business income of more than $1,000, it must also file a Form 990-T. See Publication 4221-PC or 4221-PF for more information. Although donors have no assurance that contributions are tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes until the application is approved, contributions made while an application is pending would qualify if the application is approved. However, if the application is disallowed, contributions would not qualify. Moreover, the organization would be liable for filing federal income tax returns unless its income is otherwise excluded from federal taxation. The EO website (www.irs.gov/charities) provides information about how to find out about the status of an application for tax-exempt status.”

To prepare for this wonderful abundance, the fee for services and creation of a foundation is now $8800, and is payable in one full payment only.
Please take note of new CPA, IRS/EO statement of our ok operational status from day one, and the two stories, all below…..
1) Welcome New Foundations!
AUSTIN CHARLES LIGHTNER Foundation
Mission is education regarding health, nutrition and alternative therapies, education about spiritual concepts and assisting blind people as needed.   Wonderful, Jane!
BOCH FOUNDATION 4 LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS
Mission is education regarding reversal of aging, including keeping dreams alive, removing self-imposed limits and negative thoughts, improving health, transforming cultural conditioning and status quo beliefs, healing childhood traumas, changing unsupportive core beliefs including that slowing down is “just a part of aging”, and supporting the biotechnology that can assist us.  It’s never too late to have more youth, more health, more authenticity, more possibilities, more joy and pleasure, more dreams, more miracles, more life and to thrive abundantly.  Welcome, Dagny and Kat!
FRANKLIN COMPREHENSIVE Foundation
Mission is working with young people to help them find and follow their passions and their inherent gifts.  In the future they may work with Human Services to include youth in the foster system.  Grand vision, Kellye!
LIVING THE PATH OF SAMADHI Foundation
Mission is educating and inspiring people regarding earth-based wisdom, for generations to come.  Magnificent, Icasiana, Belinda and Naomi!

2)  Foundation Tax-Exempt Approvals Received
CONGRATULATIONS to:
LARGER REALITY FOUNDATION
OOTB WOMEN’S FOUNDATION
YIPPEE!
We have another four Applications in the Review process, three of which are now actively being reviewed.
3) FFM – Featured Foundation of the Month!
It’s the WEBB EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION!
This purpose is so close to my heart, as my years teaching in the public school system burned into me the reality of how damaging that system is to kids, and how desperately it needs to be changed.  Peggy and Karen are DOING that!
The Foundation is about sponsoring gatherings and events open to the community for connecting children and families who want more, more creativity, more fun, more enrichment, more excitement regarding all kinds of learning experiences.  Crafts for kids, interactive meetings for the parents, information about what their for-profit does, and empowering a sense of relief for parents who know the public schools are disastrous for many kids and thus are seeking options, in order to help their kids thrive!  These public meetings will offer attendees opportunities to learn about the materials, books and other educational support alternatives available to families.
The Foundation is associated with West River Academy which is an accredited and affordable K-12 private school without walls, for all ages and grade levels.  They offer customized programs, self-paced learning, tailored to individual needs, abilities and goals, and ultimately graduation with an accredited high school diploma and an official transcript.  They are a California Private Satellite School (PSP) and an independent private school that complies with most states’ compulsory attendance rules.
Their programs are ideal for “unschoolers”, homeschooling parents, students in the entertainment industry, students who are gifted, disabled or have special needs, and families who travel from state to state or country to country.  Internationally, it is a legal way to opt out of public school.  Their website is WestRiverAcademy.com.
Congratulations, Peggy and Karen……go for it!  You are providing a great service.

TWO TRUE STORIES
Jazz and the Dove

Jazz, our cat, is a magical being.  He is smart, savvy, comes when he is called and follows us around the house like a dog, talks and purrs a
blue streak, grooms himself incessantly and is the cleanest cat I've ever seen (anyone allergic to cats is not allergic to him), and made a
bed for himself under the Christmas tree but has not bothered any of the ornaments.  And every cat within 1/2 mile radius knows he is the boss!  Definitely an "alpha" male.

Rod is a gifted channeler, and was born seeing and hearing Spirit.  He has the innate ability in his hands to facilitate healings.  He is a true trance channel so the information and answers offered are clear and pure.

True story:  Rod and I hosted a Christmas party and during the evening he did a channeling as our gift to all who attended.  Lady Sophia,
Creator Goddess, came through and many wonderful questions were asked of her.  Part way through the evening one of our guests, Jadelynn, noticed that Jazz had brought in an injured bird, and she brought the dove to the group.  It was Jazz's way of participating in the session, the bird wanted help in transitioning, and Jazz played his part.  Jazz is a very accomplished hunter who brings us many "trophies".  However he did not injure the bird but found it already hurt and brought it in to us. 

Lady Sophia asked to hold the dove, and then we passed it around for each person to hold and bless and contribute to its healing.  Then I as
the last person put it outside on our lanai where it could rest and be safe.  The bird did transition but the energy we all gave it made the
passing on much easier for it.  It was a beautiful experience for all present.

And the help one provides is equally valuable whether the person or animal gets well or transitions.  Which way it goes is the soul's choice, always.


Christmas Eve 1881

Pa never had much compassion for the lazy or those who squandered their means and then never had enough for the necessities.  But for those who were genuinely in need, his heart was as big as all outdoors.  It was from him that I learned the greatest joy in life comes from giving, not from
receiving.  

It was Christmas Eve, 1881.  I was fifteen years old and feeling like the world had caved in on me because there just hadn't been enough money to buy
me the rifle that I'd wanted for Christmas.

We did the chores early that night for some reason.  I just figured Pa wanted a little extra time so we could read in the Bible.

After supper was over I took my boots off and stretched out in front of the fireplace and waited for Pa to get down the old Bible.  I was still feeling
sorry for myself and, to be honest, I wasn't in much of a mood to read Scriptures.  But Pa didn't get the Bible, instead he bundled up again and
went outside.  I couldn't figure it out because we had already done all the chores.  I didn't worry about it long though, I was too busy wallowing in
self-pity.  Soon Pa came back in.  It was a cold clear night out and there was ice in his beard.  "Come on, Matt," he said.  "Bundle up good, it's cold out
tonight."  I was really upset then.  Not only wasn't I getting the rifle for Christmas, now Pa was dragging me out in the cold, and for no earthly reason
that I could see.  We'd already done all the chores, and I couldn't think of anything else that needed doing, especially not on a night like this.  But I knew Pa was not very patient at one dragging one's feet when he'd told them to do something, so I got up and put my boots back on and got my cap, coat,and mittens.  Ma gave me a mysterious smile as I opened the door to leave the house.  Something was up, but I didn't know what.

Outside, I became even more dismayed.  There in front of the house was the work team, already hitched to the big sled.  Whatever it was we were going
to do wasn't going to be a short, quick, little job.  I could tell.  We never hitched up this sled unless we were going to haul a big load.  Pa was
already up on the seat, reins in hand.  I reluctantly climbed up beside him.  The cold was already biting at me.  I wasn't happy.

When I was on, Pa pulled the sled around the house and stopped in front of the woodshed.  He got off and I followed.  "I think we'll put on the high
sideboards," he said.  "Here, help me."  The high sideboards!  It had been a bigger job than I wanted to do with just the low sideboards on, but whatever
it was we were going to do would be a lot bigger with the high side boards on.
 
After we had exchanged the sideboards, Pa went into the woodshed and came out with an armload of wood - the wood I'd spent all summer hauling down from the mountain, and then all fall sawing into blocks and splitting.  What was he doing?  Finally I said something.  "Pa," I asked, "what are you
doing?"  "You been by the Widow Jensen's lately?" he asked.

The Widow Jensen lived about two miles down the road.  Her husband had died a year or so before and left her with three children, the oldest being eight.  Sure, I'd been by, but so what?

Yeah," I said, "Why?"  "I rode by just today," Pa said.  "Little Jakey was out digging around in the woodpile trying to find a few chips.  They're out of wood, Matt."  That was all he said and then he turned and went back into the woodshed for another armload of wood.  I followed him.  We loaded the sled so high that I began to wonder if the horses would be able to pull it.

Finally, Pa called a halt to our loading, then we went to the smoke house and Pa took down a big ham and a side of bacon.  He handed them to me and
told me to put them in the sled and wait.  When he returned he was carrying a sack of flour over his right shoulder and a smaller sack of something in
his left hand.  "What's in the little sack?" I asked.  Shoes, they're out of shoes.  Little Jakey just had gunny sacks wrapped around his feet when he
was out in the woodpile this morning.  I got the children a little candy too.  It just wouldn't be Christmas without a little candy."

We rode the two miles to Widow Jensen's pretty much in silence.  I tried to think through what Pa was doing.  We didn't have much by worldly standards.  Of course, we did have a big woodpile, though most of what was left now was still in the form of logs that I would have to saw into blocks and split before we could use it.  We also had meat and flour, so we could spare that, but I knew we didn't have any money, so why was Pa buying them shoes and candy?  Really, why was he doing any of this?  Widow Jensen had closer neighbors than us; it shouldn't have been our concern.

We came in from the blind side of the Jensen house and unloaded the wood as quietly as possible, then we took the meat and flour and shoes to the door.  We knocked.  The door opened a crack and a timid voice said, "Who is it?"  "Lucas Miles, Ma'am, and my son, Matt... could we come in for a bit?"

Widow Jensen opened the door and let us in.  She had a blanket wrapped around her shoulders.  The children were wrapped in another and were sitting in front of the fireplace by a very small fire that hardly gave off any heat at all.  Widow Jensen fumbled with a match and finally lit the lamp.

"We brought you a few things, Ma'am," Pa said and set down the sack of flour.  I put the meat on the table.  Then Pa handed her the sack that had
the shoes in it.  She opened it hesitantly and took the shoes out, one pair at a time.  There was a pair for her and one for each of the children -
sturdy shoes, the best... shoes that would last.

I watched her carefully.  She bit her lower lip to keep it from trembling and then tears filled her eyes and started running down her cheeks.  She looked up at Pa like she wanted to say something, but it wouldn't come out.

"We brought a load of wood too, Ma'am," Pa said.  He turned to me and said, "Matt, go bring in enough to last awhile.  Let's get that fire up to size
and heat this place up."

I wasn't the same person when I went back out to bring in the wood.  I had a big lump in my throat and as much as I hate to admit it, there were tears
in my eyes too.  In my mind I kept seeing those three kids huddled around the fireplace and their mother standing there with tears running down her
cheeks with so much gratitude in her heart that she couldn't speak.

My heart swelled within me and a joy that I'd never known before, filled my soul.  I had given at Christmas many times before, but never when it had
made so much difference.  I could see we were literally saving the lives of these people.

I soon had the fire blazing and everyone's spirits soared.  The kids started giggling when Pa handed them each a piece of candy and Widow Jensen
looked on with a smile that probably hadn't crossed her face for a long time.  She finally turned to us.  "God bless you," she said.  "I know the Lord has sent you.  The children and I have been praying that he would send one of his angels to spare us."

In spite of myself, the lump returned to my throat and the tears welled up in my eyes again.  I'd never thought of Pa in those exact terms before, but
after Widow Jensen mentioned it, I could see that it was probably true.  I was sure that a better man than Pa had never walked the earth.  I started
remembering all the times he had gone out of his way for Ma and me, and many others.  The list seemed endless as I thought on it.

Pa insisted that everyone try on the shoes before we left.  I was amazed when they all fit, and I wondered how he had known what sizes to get.  Then
I guessed that if he was on an errand for the Lord, that the Lord would make sure he got the right sizes.

Tears were running down Widow Jensen's face again when we stood up to leave.  Pa took each of the kids in his big arms and gave them a hug.  They
clung to him and didn't want us to go.  I could see that they missed their Pa, and I was glad that I still had mine.
 
At the door Pa turned to Widow Jensen and said, "The Mrs. wanted me to invite you and the children over for Christmas dinner tomorrow.  The turkey
will be more than the three of us can eat, and a man can get cantankerous if he has to eat turkey for too many meals.  We'll be by to get you about
eleven.  It'll be nice to have some little ones around again.  Matt, here, hasn't been little for quite a spell."  I was the youngest... my two brothers and two sisters had all married and had moved away.  Widow Jensen nodded and said, "Thank you, Brother Miles.  I don't have to say, may the Lord bless you, I know for certain that He will."

Out on the sled I felt a warmth that came from deep within and I didn't even notice the cold.  When we had gone a ways, Pa turned to me and said,
"Matt, I want you to know something.  Your Ma and me have been tucking a little money away here and there all year so we could buy that rifle for
you, but we didn't have quite enough.  Then yesterday a man who owed me a little money from years back came by to make things square.  Your Ma and me were real excited, thinking that now we could get you that rifle, and I started into town this morning to do just that, but on the way I saw little
Jakey out scratching in the woodpile with his feet wrapped in those gunny sacks and I knew what I had to do.  Son, I spent the money for shoes and a
little candy for those children. I hope you understand."

I understood alright... and my eyes became wet with tears again.  I understood very well, and I was so glad Pa had done it.  Now the rifle seemed very low on my list of priorities.  Pa had given me a lot more.  He had given me the look on Widow Jensen's face and the radiant smiles of her three children.

For the rest of my life, whenever I saw any of the Jensens, or split a block of wood, I remembered, and remembering brought back that same joy I
felt riding home beside Pa that night.  Pa had given me much more than a rifle that night, he had given me the best Christmas of my life!

ZAP:

WE HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO GET INTAKE DOCUMENTS DONE UP FOR YOU AS WE JUST GOT THE GREEN LIGHT TO BEGIN THIS, BUT THE BASICS WE WILL NEED EVENTUALLY FOR AN IDEA YOU HAVE ARE:

1. PROJECT NAME, PROPONENT, LOCATION

2. CONCEPT (WHAT IS THE ANIMAL); WHAT DOES IT DO

3. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS; WHY ARE YOU DOING IT

4. HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE REQUIRED TO DO IT

5. WHERE WILL IT BE SITUATED

6. HOW MANY LOCATIONS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH OR IS IT A ONE-OFF

7. DO YOU NEED SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGIES TO DO IT

8. WILL YOU NEED OFF-THE-SHELF STUFF TO DO IT, OR DO YOU NEED STUFF MANUFACTURED

9. HOW MUCH WILL IT TAKE TO DO IT

10. WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WILL MAKE IN RETURNS (IF ANY)

HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS WILL ALSO REQUIRE THESE ITEMS AS YOU HAVE TO TREAT THEM IN A BUSINESS FASHION, NOT JUST “GIVE ME MONEY AND I WILL FEED PEOPLE….”

THOSE THAT HAVE THE BASICS FLESHED OUT AND HAVE A FEW PAGES MORE THAN JUST THE CONCEPT PHASE WORKOUT (AS YOU ALREADY WENT THROUGH THIS EXERCISE IN DEVELOPING THE PROJECT CONCEPT AND PARAMETERS), EITHER SUBMIT WHAT YOU HAVE OR PUT A BIT MORE WORK INTO IT SO IT RESEMBLES A BUSINESS PLAN (IF YOU WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME AND DO THAT AS THAT WILL HELP). THOSE WITH A BUSINESS PLAN, GOOD – AND YOU MUST BE FRUSTRATED AS HELL CAUSE YOU HAVE NOT FOUND FUNDING AS YET, OR HAVE FOUND IT BUT YOU WOULD BE RAPED AND PILLAGED IF YOU ACCEPTED IT

IN ALL CASES, WE WILL ASK FOR SOME PORTION OF YOUR PROJECT THROUGH AN EQUITY POSITION, BUT BECAUSE WE ARE TECHNICALLY A PART OF YOUR PROJECT, YOU WILL HAVE AVAILABILITY OF ALL OUR STRENGTHS BOTH IN BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGIES THROUGH OUR GLOBAL NETWORK OF BRILLIANT SCIENTISTS, BUSINESS HEADS, AND GENERAL ALL AROUND GOOD GUYS TO HELP MAKE YOUR PROJECT SUCCESSFUL.

THE PROFITS FROM OUR SHARE OF EQUITY IN YOU WILL NOT GO TO OUR POCKETS. THEY WILL GO BACK TO YOU AND THE PROJECT TO HELP IT EVEN MORE, AND ONCE SOME MILESTONES ARE REACHED (YOUR PROJECT ACHIEVES THE BREAK-EVEN POINT FOR EXAMPLE, AND BEGINS TURNING A PROFIT), YOU WILL GET EQUITY BACK. WE DO NOT NEED TO TAKE A BIG PIECE FROM YOU, BUT WE WILL TAKE A TINY PIECE TO FULFILL LEGAL REQUIREMENTS ON THE FUNDING SIDE.

THAT’S IT FOR THIS PRELIMINARY DISCLOSURE ON THE PROJECT FUNDING MECHANISM…. HOPE YOU LIKE THIS STRUCTURING AS MUCH AS WE DO IN PROVIDING REALLY “FRIENDLY FUNDING©” (I JUST MADE THAT UP AND I LIKE THE VIBRATION SO THERE’S A COPYRIGHT ON THAT ONE) FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR HUMANITY.

HAVE MUCH FUN PUTTING TOGETHER YOUR PROJECT.

3) FFM – Featured Foundation of the Month!
It’s the ALLOW LOVE FOUNDATION!  How could I not feature this one here?  :-)))  Rod is my new husband, and his purposes are so magnificent and I am so proud of him!  It is an Operating Foundation which will focus in several areas, teaching, workshops, seminars, trainings, conferences, men’s groups, women’s celebrations and more.
The Allow Love Foundation is training Metaphysical practitioners in many different disciplines.  This training is so these practitioners can go into the world and help people with their particular brand of Metaphysics.  Depending on that brand the training will take as long as two years.  Current website is www.AllowLove.com.
If the focus is on healing, there are many different healing modalities available to the practitioner.  Intuitive Reiki is a powerful healing modality but certainly not the only one.  The Foundation offers three degrees of Intuitive Reiki.  First degree can be taught easily and quickly.  Second degree allows the practitioner to offer healing to the public.  Master Teacher allows the practitioner to teach Intuitive Reiki.  Other healing modalities will be taught as well.
Channeling will be taught also.  There are three ways of receiving that one can utilize for benefitting others:  Clairvoyance—seeing the information, Clairaudience—hearing the information, and last but not least, Clairsentience—feeling the information, which is the biggest challenge but can give the most detail.  All are taught at the Allow Love Foundation.
The Allow Love Center will be about teaching practitioners and supporting them, as well as workshops etc.  The number and types of modalities will most likely depend on the teachers at the Center.  We believe in using the talents and skills of those present without dogmatic adherence to how things were done in the past.  There will be teachers of channeling, healing, animal communication, how to allow a horse to love you, and many more.  And we will run conferences on metaphysical topics as well as have guest speakers on many and diverse subjects.
The Center will be on over 600 acres of land, and about 11,000 sq. ft., with a large conference room, many rooms for classes, a gourmet kitchen, a fountain and stream that will run around the entire building, horses, wolves, cats and many other animals as well.
We honor and prize imagination, creativity, higher awareness and consciousness, and we encourage individuals developing to their own greatest potential.

This is most exciting and I am so looking forward to assisting in bringing this Center into beingness.  Congratulations, Rod!
 
4)  Next Workshop and Webinar for Trustees

This site is a communications facilitator, a MATCH-MAKER, where those who have or receive funds can find charitable activities and organizations they want to help, and those who run charitable activities and need funds can present their causes. USA and worldwide.  We are preparing for the massive humanitarian funds soon to be available. This works NOW and principals of charitable projects can apply for listing, right on the site.

8) CPAs for Foundations

TWO STORIES
WET PANTS
Come with me to a third grade classroom.  There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants is wet.  He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened.  It’s never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it.  When the girls find out, they’ll never speak to him again as long as he lives.
The boy believes his heart is going to stop.  He puts his head down and prays this prayer, ‘Dear God, this is an emergency!  I need help now!  Five minutes from now I’m dead meat.’
He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that say he has been discovered.
As the teacher is walking toward him, a class mate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water.  Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy’s lap.
The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, ‘Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!’
Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy.  The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out.  All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk.  The sympathy is wonderful.
But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else – Susie.
She tries to help, but they tell her to get out.  ‘You’ve done enough, you klutz!’
Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, ‘You did that on purpose, didn’t you?’  Susie whispers back, ‘I wet my pants once too.’
Let’s get inspired and aware so that we see the opportunities that are always around us to do good.
THE  BRICK

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.  He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.  As his car passed, no child appeared.  Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side door!  He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown.The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting, ‘What was that all about and who are you?  Just what the heck are you doing?  That’s a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money.  Why did you do it?’

The young boy was apologetic.  ‘Please, mister…please, I’m sorry but I didn’t know what else to do,’ he pleaded.  ‘I threw the brick because no one else would stop.’  With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car.  ‘It’s my brother’, he said.  ‘He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can’t lift him up.’
Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, ‘Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair?  He’s hurt and he’s too heavy for me.’
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat.  He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts.  A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.  ‘Thank you and may God bless you,’ the grateful child told the stranger.
Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home.  It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar.  The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door.  He kept the dent there to remind him of this message:  ‘Don’t go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!’
God/Goddess whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts.  Sometimes when we don’t have time to listen, S/He has to throw a brick at us.  It’s our choice to listen or not!
