IT problems have struck and there will be intermittent problems here this coming week, which you may or may not notice. Good news, RH Humphries over at Woody’s has given the A Voice in the Corner Blog and award, so thanks Mr Humphries. Also a well-wisher contacted me to say that she had just read […]
