Read AP Makes the Headlines - Not!

This was a while in the planning, however in the end everything was done in one week (just like real life eh?)

Anyhow, if it brings us more members on FF then it's gotta be good. Thanks to Geoff P. and John (aka LunaticSS) and Neil McDonald for taking it from idea to fruition.

You guys!!!!!

We shot the photo in a mirror because the camera lens kept cracking when photos were taken directly. Ugly indeed.

I see our Holden boys are already jealously posting on our site (LOL). You guys may have the power, but we own the net (he, he) - and the media (cue evil music here....).
