I have noticed that certain people are labelled as “Patron”, but I can’t find any indication of what that means and I’m curious
Patrons donate a small amount each month to help maintain/run the site.
Thank you (and to the Patrons).
I made the wrong-headed assumption that Patrons were personages of substance who served as reference points of wisdom, discretion, learning, gravitas and dignity for the organisation in question @Flaneur.
That was a (not at all expensive) mistake .
It’s very much a worthwhile cause IMO and as long as a few still live in blissful ignorance as to my apparently estimable eminence and the privilege and gracious bounty I bestow selflessly and unsung on Survive France, I shall remain content in my patronage…
NB it looks good on one’s CV too
Peter, I knew they weren’t the sort of people you describe the moment I saw you are one!
And, being serious, it’s a worthwhile cause to support.
Persons of such crystalline discernment as you’ve displayed in rumbling me usually cough up in the end…
D’accord, c’est pour ça que mon employée m’appelle “Patron” ; parce que je lui donne quelque chose chaque mois pour maintenir “mon site” (mon tabac !)
Peter, I’d mistakenly assumed that your experience and eminence had taken you far beyond the need to even rememberthe world of constructing one’s CV…
It’s a hobby appropriate to my dotage, Mark, refreshing and embellishing my CV .
I can usually find some past achievement worth adding. I recall winning first prize (a set of towels) at a school fete when I was 12. I correctly identified ten smells from unlabelled smell-bottles. I remember the experience in almost all its detail, including most of the smells!
This could be of some value if seeking work as a parfumier or a wine critic? And it is novel enough to intrigue a prospective and suitably whimsical employer, do you think?
My CV is like Jacob’s Ladder, Mark.
But can you remember what happend yesterday.
@james I see a Tip Jar has been added to the subject bar.
Only problem is where people don’t use PP so unable to send you a small xmas wedge for your efforts
Are there alternatives (there used to be)?
No need to use paypal, please send by cheque to Wozza, @ xxxxx IBAN xxxxx xx xxxx
If there are other methods I’d chip in!
Ok guys - question from Mr H - he thought that was a simple fix - clearly not! So anything better out there that you know of please?
Thank you! And have a lovely start of the weekend everyone
I think you used to have a CB option… Revolut can also be used to make subscriptions but it requires account details…
I never knew you were Nigerian, Wozza!

As an aside,
As a part of my day job, I work in this domain …
If any of you do receive an e-mail of this sort do not click on any links or reply to the sender. NEVER CLICK ON LINKS & NEVER REPLY TO SENDER!!!
Change all your passwords on all accounts (do not use the same passwords, use different ones for each).
Don’t panic, as most times this sort of e-mail doesn’t have any other details other than your e-mail address.
The idea of changing all my passwords every time some scammy email lands in my in-box sounds a bit crazy! We must get one (usually pretending to be laposte, orange or edf) every 10 days or so.
Can I make a payment link with revolut for CB? That would be ideal
As a quick question,what is money given through the Tip Jar used for?
