Standing Orders No. 2

Well here I am again, feeling a bit better after time on sick parade, and getting ready to advance on the enemy!
After getting entangled in the barbed wire of learning I am feeling more confident on attacking on all fronts (well maybe 1 front at a time).
I have signed up for a my friend flicker account and waiting to recieve reinforcements in the form of some of my military photo's and I will start adding them to my Blog!!!!!!!!!!
There are some great looking blogs out there, its good to see people having fun and learning something new at the same time, I know I am.
well that all for this report, I hope to have the photo's on in a few days.
keep up all the good work out there.
