OK it's time to pony up some "coin" to help those who lost everything on Oklahoma due to tornadoes!! I'd encourage you to make a donation to help these people and BTW, I just made a donation to the Salvation Army with it designated for disaster relief for Oklahoma.

FYI the Salvation Army has the lowest operations cost of ANY of these type outfits, which means that MORE of your donation actually goes to helping people in need rather in paying some people exorbitant salaries!!

Please help as next time it may be YOU in need!
