Feedback and Notes

Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

Onyango Makagutu replied to Chris's discussion When did you become an atheist?

My thoughts on the education of children

The ultamate deal is gold. and - diamonds. I know how much the diamonds are causing problems - or to put it another way natural minerals such as cobalt,  and rare earth minerals  (Magnets)  are caucing conflicts. It makes me ill - disposable telephones..
