In by Johnny FoxLeave a Comment

I wonder if blogs are like new diaries, or New Year resolutions – to be buffed and polished and pored over for the first days of the year, and then left to gather dust. The major question I’m expecting from Gentle Reader (oh and I so wonder what you’re like) is Why? and Why Now? […]
