Its a start

Im just learning this whole blogger thing , i will get better......maybe

And i swear...... quite a lot sometimes so any videos i post with me in them...............probably best not to watch them with kids around.........or people with fragile sensibilities.....probably best to have the volume on low as well, or wear headphones , or off , off is probably best if you are in the vicinity of "the more gentle folk"...............

If you have any hints or tips for me , cool , send me a PM or an email or something ? its cool im learning as i go along and new friends are always great , unless you want to borrow money.....................

And share this blog thing ! i want to be WORLD FAMOUS !! i want to be so famous eskimos spray paint my name on their igloos with seal pee  !!!!!
