ok the website has needed to be updated for a few years now as the Drupal is way out of date. I checked with DreamHost who is my ISP and they say they will do it for $300 which I thought was pretty reasonable.

I've been paying for everything since inception in 2002 and I'm NOT going to pay for this. Having said that I'm not going to take the site down if you all refuse to foot this bill. So what do you think would asking each of you to donate $10 be too much to ask? I said $10 because I don't think MANY of you all will separate with a few buck but I do hope 30 of you will. . .but hey surprise me and make me a rich man and flood my mailbox with ten dollar bills.


ok, el sitio web ha tenido que actualizarse durante algunos años ya que Drupal está muy desactualizado. Verifiqué con DreamHost, que es mi ISP, y dicen que lo harán por $300, lo que pensé que era bastante razonable.

He estado pagando por todo desde el inicio en 2002 y NO voy a pagar por esto. Habiendo dicho eso, no voy a retirar el sitio si todos se niegan a pagar esta factura. Entonces, ¿qué crees que pedir a cada uno de ustedes que done $10 sería demasiado pedir? Dije $10 porque no creo que MUCHOS de ustedes se separen con unos pocos dólares, pero espero que 30 de ustedes lo hagan. . .pero me sorprenden y me hacen rico e inundan mi buzón de billetes de diez dólares.


My check is in the mail, Joseph.


Really it is not about the money as $300 is not very much. I'm just wanting to see if there is truly enough interest in the group to support this effort. Even if one of the letters I receive has $300 I'll be returning them ALL if I do not have 30 separate contributions. The only ones I might NOT be returning are those that come to me without a RETURN ADDRESS because the way I'll return them is to mark them REFUSED and they should be RETURNED TO SENDER.

Just for your information as of 9/23 I have 6 contributions so things are not looking good.

Also if I didn’t explain it clearly If I DO NOT receive 30 separate contributions I WILL NOT be shutting down the site but if the site one days stops working due to needing maintenance then I’ll remember this failed effort to raise funds and consider it the time to let the group go.

Put me down for $10.
Thank you for continuing this website.

Do you have an email associated with a PayPal account? I can send you the $10 via PayPal. It's faster.

I haven’t used a paper check since before the pandemic. No one wants them anymore, not even my landlord. All of my payments are made electronically now. Is there an electronic payment option (PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, or ClickPay)?

Mailing my check this Monday! Thank you so much Nuestros Ranchos!!!When I first signed up I was overwhelmed by the amount of information posted & all the knowledgeable people on this site, you guys are amazing.

can you please email me at

Can I pay with Venmo?

Thank you,

Just a check or a well hidden $10 in an envelope
