1st post

Well, as I have dug out my old web designs for HOUSEQUAKE, I have been thinking about creating a new site...it is long overdue and I need to dust off my design skills.

As using a guestbook on sites these days can lead to email harvesting and spammers galore, I thought I would investigate the use of Blogging for things like guestbooks, posting pics taken at gigs, etc.

We'll see how it goes.

Don't know why you took off the Flash site, I thought it was great - in a kind of amateur don't know what you're doing way LOL :D

Anyways, I'll be watching.

Now then Boys.

I'm glad to see that you are using the new Blogging revolution to keep in touch with your fan!

I often look on your website to see how my ex-bandmates are doing.

As you know I have now aquired a feeder who is trying his best to get me upto 35 stone to fullfill his sexual desires.......only got another 2 stone to go to reach my target.

I would love to come and see you sometime but it's getting harder to hire the crane from Sam Alan's to winch me off my bed, as they are using it most days on the new devolpment in the town centre.

Anyways, can't lie here pratting about sending you mesages cus Gweedo has just brought me another pile of sausage rolls from Skeltons.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon from your ex band member.

Noz.
