Its My Birthday Today

Just a quick heads up. its my birthday today, the big 25, and as you can imagine its been fairly busy with family and what not. i'll try to keep the news in brief up to date, and when i can blog posts. But ultimately, i do not know how regularly the site is going to be updated today. Apologies for any inconvenience, but as its my birthday i think you'll forgive me, lol.

PS...if you've been visiting the site for a while now, perhaps as a birthday present you could give a small donation???
