Weekly Wrap up
Since it has been over a week and a bit since I last put an update ont he main page I have sat down and will write all about the chnages to the site and also the trials and tribulations of the last two weeks. Two weeks ago we wre burgled in the early hours on the morning by four men who took it upon themselves to break through reinforced steel bars at the front of our house. The neighbours rang the police twice, who then got lost on the way here (they even admitted as they got lost because the page in their street directory had been torn out - considering the one page makes up their entire beat it was inexcusable). The poice took twenty minutes to arrive while the four men broke through and into the house stealing both my and the boy's notebook computers. Unfortuntaley I last backed up about 6 weeks ago so I have lost an enormous amount of work and a lot of personal stuff that I was writing including some draft chapters of stories etc.
The long and the short of the breakin is we will move as soon as possible, but I find the police's stupidness ridiculous at the very least. We were not at home at the time, althought he neighbours thought we were and so they pleaded with the police to arrive even sooner. If they had arrived within ten minutes (the police station is less than 2 minutes away incidently) they would have caught the offenders before entering the house. Anyway, I am now totally scared of them coming again, and wake at the slightest sound during the nioght, but we will survive and get away from this street which seems to have a great deal of crime!
As the regular readers of superdrewby will ahve noticed the site has undergone a large amount of change int he last ten days. I have removed the advertising entirely and given the site a clean and fresh, more funky look which I hope everyone really likes! I am still working on a number of pages in p[articular the members profiles and members page will soon be changed as well to make it even easier to use. Also I am woking on a great deal of new and reevant content for the site, which I will be publishing progessively over the coming weeks. Some fo the highlights are:
- Gay Sex Guide
- Guide to Party Drugs
- Christompher Summerfield Photography will be getting its own dedicated section
- Wes Cotton Photo Gallery
- Howard Roffman'd Pictures of Kris - Gallery, Book and Film Review
- How to Seduce Straight Boys a tounge in cheeck guide
- The next chapter of Life at a private School
- e Cards that can e sent to friends
- Photo Galleries for members profiles so you can create an entire gallery of images of yourself
- Gay ganes 2002 Guide and a Gay Sydney Guide for visitors
I am slowly integrating a new way of supporting Superdrewby through purchasing books, videos and other stuff through Amazon. The old advertisiong was getting a great click through rate but I never got any monetary returns which makes me believe that the CJ.com advertising banner service is fraudulent and I will be following up on this as soon as I can!
Stay tuned and come back even more reguarly as new content will be added at least once a week!
Changes a Foot
Superdrewby is being updated over the next twenty four hours so some functions may not be available. If you are getting strange errors or the page does not look quite right, please try again in a few minutes.
There will also be a few more page not found errors as the server takes it's time to actually locate these new pages, but have no fear all will be fully operational without delay!
There are also a few pages that are only half completed and I am working on the final versions of these pages as quickly as possible, in the meantime if you see an error just bear with me. Most if not all fo the normal functionality is working but it may just be a little flaky like me at times!
A thought of love
I have a favorite saying which I think really relates to alot of my writing. The quote is by Benjamin Disraeli, for those of you who have never heard of this wonderful and awe inspiring man have a look at some of the search results from google.com. Although I do not share all of his political interests or ideals (he was Tory) he was a man of the people who made good, and a novelist of much fame. Living in Queen Victoria's regin of power in the magnificent 19th century.
While cleaning I came accross a scrap of paper on which I had written the quote:
"First love's magic is not knowing that it may end"
Simple, elegant and true. First love is a wonderful and exciting period in our lives and we never quite forget our first love, whether it be a boy at school, or someone we met later in life. First love is a truly magic and exciting period. So many writers use first love as the basis for their own stories and try to capture the joy, the terror and the excitement of all the feelings we have churning through our stomachs. Sometimes our first love can last a lifetime and we grow old with that person and share our lives, but sometimes first love can be a fleeting experience which we move on from and grow into adults. Growing to be very different people than we were at that time. And sometimes we love our first love so much we let them free to soar into the heavens, even if that means we are no longer together.
Remember that love is an incredibly special thing and when it happens we are blessed with a small view of eternity! Never let love go and always be true to your own self and others!
"Now we know that perhaps as many as half of America's priests are believed to be gay. A church that still preaches that homosexuals are 'intrinsically disordered' relies on these allegedly sick people to run its dioceses, churches and schools. Talk about cognitive dissonance."
-- Gay, Catholic, conservative writer Andrew Sullivan, Time.com, April 30.
This was sent to me in a group I am a member of:
British marines face a more scary threat than Al Qaeda in Afganistan:
Being propositioned by gay Afghan farmers. While the marines failed
to find any al-Qaeda during the Operation Condor, they were
propositioned by dozens of men in villages the troops were ordered to
search... The hardened troops, their faces covered in camouflage
cream and weight down with weapons, radios and ammunition, were
confronted with Afghans wanting to stroke their hair... The horrified
British Marines quickly retreated!
This was really quite funny and I thought it should be told because in many cases it has nothing to do with homosexuality it is more about showing thanks and appreciation for these soldiers and let's also remember taht the British soldiers look significantly different to the Afgahni villagers!
