NB ThinkPurpose is on holiday, if the WordPress daemons have done their magick then this has been published whilst I am not anywhere a computer, so any comments left won’t be approved til I get back beginning of September. There’s plenty of rubbish still to come from the daemons to spoil your day with, don’t you worry.
