Posted by Gaiiden, in Weekend Reading 06 July 2014 · 688 views

Two fireworks shows down in Florida outside of Miami I did for this holiday weekend went great - Arthur was well to the north and the T-storms stayed away during the evenings. Got home last night so here's the Late But Still Great edition of Weekend Reading, with entries from 6/28 - 7/6

Say hello to new journal authors Migi0027, sck8000 and GoCatGo!

Project Updates

Game Dev Stuffs
