News

Did you ever just have one of those weeks where you didn’t feel like doing anything? That’s the kind of week I had this past week, that’s one of the dangers of working from home and not really having a boss. You can just sit back, relax and say “I’ll do it tomorrow” but then it just doesn’t happen. Anyway, I need to get some work done, got  a lot of reviews coming for you, should have several this weekend in fact. I’ve got a lot of stuff going on that I just need to get done for this site and my other sites. So I need to get down to it straight away. So read the news and come back later for some reviews I’ll be posting up tonight.
