Hi Everyone,
Well Comic-con was insane - the trip to see Galaxy play Man.City was insane I heard pub quiz was insane - Thank god Breakfast club was pretty tame last week - lol- See some of the event pictures below. But before we get into the events - Please spare a thought for the family and friends of AMY WINEHOUSE - Such a tragedy - Such a talent and such a waste - R-I-P Amy and Also BAXTER the dog -who lived 8 good years - He had traveled the world and helped a lot of people as a search and rescue dog - Big bundle of joy and alas his time was near - so spare a thought for Eileen and James  - losing a pet is never easy- So big hugs to those guys.
RIP BAXTER



One of my favorite Amy Wine house songs 'VALERIE'
