Bears, lasers and shoggoths in Richmond

“As the Richmond town Weigher of Coal, I enthusiastically second the idea of everyone becoming a supporting member of Front Porch Forum (which you can do by clicking right here: http://frontporchforum.com/supporting-members).

“Without Front Porch Forum, how would you have heard about the hungry bears going door to door in an unmarked Suburban ‘raising funds’? Or learned about the opportunities to clean Richmond streets with a giant, overpowered laser? Or heard about the shoggoth getting out? These are all things that in times gone by you’d only have heard about much later, *after* the fact, meaning that once again you’d have missed out on assembling at the town green with torches and rakes and other implements of destruction to go ‘protest’ at the Doctor’s castle. And no one wants to miss out on an opportunity to be part of an angry, frightened mob of villagers. Don’t let that happen to you! Support Front Porch Forum!

Treadmill killer finds next victim from Vergennes neighbors

Karen posted on her Vergennes FPF…

I’ve killed my treadmill… I won’t survive without one for long! if you’ve got a decent one gathering dust and/or clothing, and it’s a fairly heavy duty, fully functional model, I’m interested! Thank you!

And then she followed up today with…

Front Porch Forum is a Great Resource… there are a LOT of treadmills out there waiting for someone to use them!  Thank you for all the responses; I now have a treadmill and a rowing machine.

Recumbent bike loan in Ferrisburgh

“Thank you to KS in Charlotte who had a recumbent bike he wasn’t using. Now I can continue with my physical therapy while I am still basically home bound. Thanks also to Front Porch Forum for bringing neighbors together to help one another. It is really appreciated.”
