    Mr. Ford
    Thank you so much for all the work you’ve put into this website. What’s amazing and hard to understand is you’re doing all this for FREE and there’s no advertising on your site. I thought peopole like you didn’t exist anymore. Also, thank you very much for the Free Food information. Where, what time, dates and even maps. Very useful information for our community residents.

    • Ms Francis X:
      I am humbled by your appreciation and commentary. Yes, “all this for Free” and “membership” is not required. And, as you observe, there is no advertising on my site, with one exception.

      That “exception” is found under the TOURIST INFORMATION RESOURCES where I actually display information about local commercial enterprises, or provide a link to them, so that visitors and tourists to the Morongo Basin have a single source of where things are, and how to get there given that tourists are not familiar with our part of the Desert Wonderland.

      I do not solicit “donations” or monetary compensation for my efforts. My “receipt of payments” comes in the form of comments such as yours and the satisfaction that I am able to do it.

      Thank you FrancisX for your most welcome commentary.

      –BF
