News for Sunday September 23rd 2012

News

So it’s Sunday, I think, at least for another 10 minutes or so anyway. Yeah I’m up late, I’ve spent all of last week working on my roof and thankfully I’ve only got a few more days left of it! I spent all of yesterday and most of today redesigning one of my website from scratch, porting it from Mambo CMS to WordPress, and it’s a ton of work as there’s just no real easy way to do it. Anyway, I’m behind in reviews, but I will get them posted this week along with more news or PR for you. So stay tuned, once I get this roof done I’ll have more time for posting. I’m planning on redesigning this site as well, but not until next month, so that’s something to look forward to.. For now read the news from around the world..
