Happy New Year to all! I have finally added a new page to the website. Please go to the main menu and click on "Figures." ​​

​​Friday December 18, 2015

I haven't heard from anybody as of yet whether or not I should continue to maintain this website or not. I have decided to continue with it and should hopefully start adding pages in the next few weeks. Until then, I would like to wish everybody a very "Merry Christmas & a great New Year." ​​

You don't believe me!

Just in case anybody views this website, I imagine you are greatly displeased at the lack of updates. Quite frankly, I just gave up with it and feel it isn't necessary as there are many sons' websites out there on the web. Fortunately for all of us, the websites out there are so wonderfully done and clearly dedicated sons of the desert. I wanted to change the overall layout and design from the previous website but it takes too much time to complete these changes. I am, however, going to keep the pages that is currently still active on the site. If anybody would like me to continue providing updates, please send a message on the guestbook or via email. If I don't hear from anybody within the next month or so, the website will be sadly discontinued. I guess all I can say is, "Goodbye, Goodbye!" ​​​​P.S. Those not interested do not answer!
