Permanent Termination of Alerts Mailing List

25 June, 2018

Ladies and Gentlemen -

Over this past twelve months our subscribers have declined by about 80%; I personally attribute it to no one having the spare change (myself included).  Also, since we don't send out emails very often, I am sure that you wonder why you are paying for - well the idea was to send out only the most important messages - they are not of the daily, weekly or even usually the monthly persuasion.

There comes a point in time when everything must end, and after almost nine years of continuous operations, this is that time for this alerts list; for multiple reasons:
  1. It is no longer financially feasible for me to spend as much time as I do on this project; and,
  2. I am very busy with the family business now that I am getting around better; and,
  3. Eight hours plus a day for $45 or so a month total is just no longer worth it.
  4. With more people learning how to use the tens of thousands of news sources out there, most of the time our subscribers know as much as we do about any given subject that we write about.

I will try my best to give refunds on a pro rated basis to our annual subscribers first - as long as I have the money to do so - We'll have some more, but not much more, after the first of the month.  Since it's almost the end of the month I am not to worried about the monthly subscribers - if you are, just write me at we'll get things squared away..

It wasn't too much fun most of the time folks, but it was ALWAYS interesting.

In closing, I want to remind you that just because someone with hundreds of thousands of listeners and/or followers says something, does not make it true.  Many of the big names are out there to entertain rather than inform.  We are sometimes entertaining by accident, but we have a near perfect accuracy rate compared to the big names who have a fit every time sends in a picture of a white military looking vehicle.

Here are some links we hope that you might find useful and even use.

Wishing you all of the good fortune that you are due and the constant protection of the Creator, most respectfully yours,

Tim Spencer

PS:  We just found out that we "somehow" lost our list software off, of the server - we are not going to pay for another just to send out this email. We're posting it on the home page instead.
