Hey hey I hope you're pleased with yourself mate - I have returned to blogging with my new project in response to your request. You're right - I bloody miss blogging! It's great!

I need some help with my new project, - Notes are on my facebook announcement and on my blog Basically I would like you and any of your readers to send in posts for my new wall that will be replacing my facebook account completely. The more the merrier!
