Sorry about the delay in posting! I would like to say the New Year was full of alchomohol but unfortunately it was full of coldy flu-y illness!

It’s been a crazy year, full of server crashes, fighting with corrupt databases, resurrections and return to nearly former glory! Just want to say thanks to all who have stuck around and I still love laughing daily at all your comments!

Also just want to thank the Tag Wizard who has been a huge help to me this year! May it continue on over 2016! Happy New Year!!

First, the top rated cover of last year:

We have trained him wrong... as a joke.Click for original post

The Tag Wizards Chosen favourite:

And my chosen favourite from the year:
