As I’ve stated before, I’m just one guy with a blog, not a multi-national ramen conglomerate, I rely on the readers to pay for the bandwidth. With that said, you will notice Amazon.com links on the left hand side of the page. You will probably see ramen ads, mostly, but occasionally random stuff pops-up. Anyway, if you ever need to buy from Amazon.com, click through that window, and I get a small referral fee for your purchase. I cannot see who purchases what, so don't worry about privacy!
