24 August 2014: With the long awaited announcement of the Glass Onion New York Tour - I have created a new page called Lennon:Through A Glass Onion and created links to it from the Home page, the Glass History pages and the Career By Decade 2010s page. It has links to the official LennonOnStage page and facebook pages and links to buy tickets, in addition to publicity and articles.
3 August 2014: A long time between edits due to the changeover from Windows to Apple. The Homestead sitebuilder is not built for Apple products sadly so I now have to update online and can only have a single page open at a time and no cutting and pasting of text - seriously! Making life difficult. Today I have thoroughly updated Career By Decade 2010s and removed the old links pages as well as updating the navigation bars with fresh links to the Glass Onion facebook pages and John's new managers and agents. The Glass Onion History pages havent been updated with articles and reviews as most of them have been linked to on my facebook page for John. Created a page for movie Adios. Created a page for Random Articles through 2010s. Updated The "Related Waters" and 6 Degrees pages. Updated the biography on the home page.
14 May 2011: Created new Offspring 2011 page. Added episode guide and photos to Offspring 2010 page. Added article to Glass Onion 2010 page.
23 Jan 2011: added reviews and articles to Glass Onion 2010/11 page. Added new albums to Career By Type - Music page. Updated Career By Type - TV and Career By Type - Stage pages. Updated Webmistress page. Added new photos to the Photo Album and created a new album for 2011 onwards. Commenced construction of the facebook fan page to replace the two myspace pages. Myspace has become seriously annoying to manage and I just dont think it can compete with the sheer size of facebook these days. Nothing will change here on the main site - I will simply be also listing gig dates and promoting live theatre etc on facebook. Link is above in the navigation bar and also below left at the bottom of the site guide.
14 Dec 2010: Created a page for promoting the new release of childrens story on CD Pilliga Pete.

December 20 2008: I know its been a while since an update. I used up all my megabytes of netspace ! Have had to find some ways to reduce it so to start off I have deleted the 4 Pictures Index pages for the 70s 80s 90s and 2000s. Instead I have uploaded all the photos to a Bravenet album which you can find by clicking on PHOTO ALBUM in the navigation bar above. You will see ads on the album pages unfortunately. Cant do much about that for the time being. Next plan is to move other pictures over to a hosting site like Photobucket and put them into slideshows or something to take up less space and bandwidth.
