Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest. I try to post about everything I do, not just what goes according to plan, so it's a blog all about stumbling along in a roughly forward direction rather than reaching the destination, with lots of ideas for potential projects that will probably never see the light of day!

In his statement, Major Short Cummins, clearly suggested that UN patrols of the key strategic river crossing at Unyunbaji would no longer be in place, thereby opening this arterial route to a potential Zumatan strike along the axis of Highway Seven:
'The deterioration of the security situation in the Npungwe border zone places units of CRAP at a distinct risk of military engagement. In order to ensure strict neutrality all CRAP troops will be withdrawn from the Unyunbaji forward operating base to the UN compound in Wanga Wanga, pending a full and thorough investigation of the tactical situation on the ground'
