February 2, 2019 – Website Updating

Just want to give you a heads up. I am going to be doing some updating on the website over the next few days.

Sometimes (because it’s a computer and I don’t know why it does things on it’s own!) the website may send out emails to those who have sign up to receive them. Please excuse these excessive email if you do receive them.

I should have the updating finished by Monday.

Wish me luck!
