Happy New Year!!!

by on Jan.04, 2011, under Site News

Hello Everyone!

I want to take this moment to thank you for visiting my site and for making a wonderful success!  I started this site almost a year ago not expecting anything but your continued support, comments and suggestions continues to amaze me.  I can’t thank you all enough for reading my site, commenting on the articles and contributing your stories with the articles I post.

From my workbench to yours, may you have an awesome Yule/Christmas/Kwanzaa/Chanukkah/Solstice/whatever and a very prosperous new year.  Hopefully the next year for me will result in significantly more time to get to writing articles for everyone as well as more things to hack apart for articles to write!

Thank you, all of you.
