One death too many….

Ivowed never to comment on the Madeleine McCann case on this blog… but in light of what has happened over the last few days and because of a certain Portuguese Blogger Joana Morais deciding to put my twitter handle to the dossier that was handed to the police with regards to the online harassment of…

Kicking and Screaming…

As much as I can’t stand…

Well it is not.. another family this week are having to face the future without someone they love being…
