News for Tuesday January 1st 2013


Happy New Year! Let’s start the new year off with some news from our friends around the world! We’ve got plenty of it for you, lots of reviews and articles have been posted so find your self something to read while you’re recovering from the festivities of last night. I hope you didn’t enjoy yourself too much! I’m working on a re-design of this site, I was hoping to have it live for the new year, but things happen, and I’ve found having kids home for their winter break made it a lot harder to do any real work. Kids will be back in school tomorrow though, so hopefully we can roll out the new design sooner than later!!  Anyway, read the news…
