Rest assured, this is not an ominous naming of names promulgating a forthcoming program of violent happenings. It is purely a simple ploy to entice internet surfers to my blog: Ough-Zone so that they may be exposed to the wonderful world I am offering for the edification of head-scratching admirers or apoplectic dissenters.

Thank you very much for blundering into my ramblings and I hope you will stay awhile and perhaps savour a little of the serendipity of our meeting. Just scroll up and down for a quick look-see.

If your name should rightfully be included in the above list but is inadvertantly missing please advice me by noting such an unforgivable error in the comments box. It will be rectified chop-chop.

Thank you,

John Ough
